Project Telex is ‘designed for families and adventurers’


The 65-metre Project Telex superyacht design draws on naval inspiration to envision a
luxury yacht that will appeal to both families and adventurers, according to its British
designer Bannenburg and Rowell (B&R).
“Freely inspired by assertive military forms, and seeking a well-proportioned silhouette, we
have taken an honest and unpretentious approach to the exterior design,” said the company
in a statement.
While appealing to families, the Project Telex design could also be adapted to the harshest
climates and fitted with various utility options.
B&R’s creative director Simon Rowell told Superyacht Investor that the vessel would
accommodate hybrid propulsion systems. “With regards to engines and range, our concept
design is not limited to a specific propulsion package,” said Rowell.
“We work with all major European yacht builders to ensure an owner’s personal technical
requirements are achieved. Cruising speed of 15 knots would be a reasonable assumption,
based on conventional diesel/electric propulsion but our bespoke yacht design allows for
various engineering solutions.”
Rowell said the design was inspired by four themes: adventure, active lifestyle, power and
proportion. The superyacht will be able to accommodate up to 14 guests in seven state
rooms and is operated by a crew of 14.
Simon Rowell told Superyacht Investor: “We do believe in highlighting the unique
possibilities of life in the water. For some this may be a very traditional day cruiser with a
mahogany interior that seldom finds the open ocean. But our mission with the Telex Project
is to open people’s mind to the further possibilities of yachting, and the freedom that can be
