Juan Ortiz Rincon is pleased to present his superyacht project Anaconda, for which he was selected as Young Designer of the Year Finalist during the 2013ShowBoatsDesign Awards at Monaco, “The “Oscars” of the yachting industry. The goal of this year’s Young Designer category was to create a modern, non-commercial looking 65m explorer yacht.
Anaconda is designed for setting off on worldwide adventures and traveling in a relaxed way to the most remote destinations without sacrificing any comforts of a superyacht lifestyle.
The sleek lines and pure shapes of the exterior design of Anaconda form a clear outline, which is easily recognizable and gives the yacht a radical, individual and masculine character.The architectural approach of using large glass elements and organic structures floats the interior areas with luminosity and creates an exciting conjunction between interior and exterior zones, offering much more usable space than other yachts of the same range.
The yacht features six exterior lounge areas, including a private starlight observation lounge and a sundowner lounge, a glass Jacuzzi, as well as an exterior dining area with Teppanyaki show cooking and a BBQ bar. Folding balconies secure breathtaking views over the ocean and offer additional space for sunbathing and relaxing. A special highlight on board is a hot air balloon departure on the forward part of the yacht.
The large beach club on the aft part of Anaconda includes a diving store and preparation room, as well as a glass Jacuzzi with skylight and integrated beach bar, making the area an ideal gathering place during the day. The terraces on the sea allow direct access for diving, water toys boarding and shore excursions.
The contemporary interior style of Anaconda, with its clear lines and open, luminous spaces, reflects perfectly the exterior design. Panoramic windows and skylights create a direct link between inside and outside areas, always recalling the surrounding sea. The material concept is based on warm, natural colours and textures, like black lip mother of pearl and coconut mosaics, combined with contemporary materials such as glass and stainless steel. A special focus lies on illumination and the integration of modern art objects. The interior style has a masculine character, providing a fresh and relaxed atmosphere.
The interior layout features two salons on the upper and main deck; one main salon and dining area with a fireplace lounge and one day salon with bar that converts at night time into a cinema. The guest area, containing three large guest cabins, is located on the main deck in the heart of the public areas, while the owner’s area, extended over two decks, is located on the aft part of the upper and bridge deck to secure privacy. Special highlights of the owner’s area are a skylight above the bed for shooting star watching and a inside-outside-Jacuzzi to use in any weather conditions.
The two tender garages of the yacht keep a DeepFlight Super Falcon submarine and three additional tender boats, such as a sports tender, exploration tender and limousine tender. One of the tender garages can convert into a discotheque at night time offering a disco bar and an exclusive dance floor for the nightly parties on board. In order to recover from those parties and for well being in general, Anaconda also offers a wellness and health spa with massage rooms, hairdresser, sauna, float tub and gym on the lower deck of the yacht.
The crew areas are completely separated from the public areas and include a crew gym and television room. A big galley on the main deck and well connected additional pantries on every deck secure best service on board.

Juan Ortiz Rincon is a 23 year old Colombian Industrial Design student at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is a passionate sailor and traveler: “Ever since I was a child, I have had a great deal of curiosity about the charms and mysteries of the oceans and the vessels that sail it,” explains Ortiz Rincon. “This curiosity, over the years has turned into a passion for sailing and yacht design. I am particularly fascinated with the study and exploration of human factors, technologies and morphologies, which, applied to objects and spaces, generate a more efficient use of resources and maximize the comfort.”
