Abstract

The Twentieth Century has seen a strong development of the industrial power, as the Twenty first century is experiencing the one of the communications. The value of the biological and social life of the individual is indissolubly linked to the "time" factor; the need to go faster is justified by the fact that in reality, time is money, but furthermore than that time is life. In this sense is confirmed the most authentic concept of luxury, as the Slow Food for catering, the cruise trend surveys towards the much appreciated tendency of the Slow Cruise. So, the trip is more significant, and the pursuit of speed gives way to the quality of the time spent on board. The cruise becomes liberation of mental pollution to rediscover the pleasure of calm and tranquility. We observe the rise of the type of slow ships, small or large but comfortable and elegant, which continue to claim more their success. The slow journey is more intense: the "low operating speed" must, therefore, become a must to rediscover pleasure, and show off with pride. The yacht-design opens today towards new design variables: the sensory aspects become essential elements; the conscious use of materials draws new emotions related to the color, the noise, the smell, the finish and the use of light. The design of the space is expanded beyond the usual boundaries. There is a need for designs with careful planning of new livable boats: to live and travel. The future project will synthesize the binomials of: functionality/comfort, space public/private, interior/exterior, empty/full.
