BA (Hons) Automotive and Transport
Shen Ivan Jayakody, 23 years old from Italy Graduating 2020 from Coventry University. As a designer Shen is very inspired by yacht exterior and interior design and the individuality that widely changes through each client. For this reason, he choose to specialize in yacht design. At the end of his third academic year he got the opportunity to do his internship at Feadship, in the Netherlands, where he learned about the design and construction aspects of yachts. Finally, all the knowledge he has gained during these 4 academic years and his internship gave him the tools and inspiration to design his Final major project: ‘Amabile’.
This project is a 100m All-Electric Motor yacht designed for a Tech billionaire environmentalist, with the aim of influencing the current yacht-market with a move towards eco-friendly solutions, without compromising the user experience. This yacht will function as a private luxury type of transportation that will allow the owner to switch off their busy and stressful lifestyle, providing great user experience to them and their passengers, giving them a range of activities to choose from entertainment, relaxation, fitness and adventure.
