TIM ELLIOT – FAST FORWARD YACHT

This concept relates to the forward life concept in many ways, not least because it takes my life and my concept forward. Beyond that, this design moves yacht design forward, and as a method of transport, it is forward moving in itself. Forwards in this design’s terms, also honours the goal of making good design available to more people through lower cost of product achieved through

innovative and cheaper production techniques. Not only does the design have a modern aesthetic, but it takes a revolutionary approach to yacht manufacture, whilst employing common vacuum technologies (re-purposed to flat part holding in the mould) found in the everyday fibre glass workshop (where vacuum is used for resin infusion) and CNC workshop (where vacuum is used for part holding during machining).
