NEW SUPERYACHT CONCEPT: KNOWLEDGE AND ARTISTRY THAT GIVES HER POWER
THE STORY | SUCCESS IS NO ACCIDENT!
Duelle Yacht Design is founded and led by Michele Lubrano Lobianco, born in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, infatuated with sport boats and sea. After having graduated from the University of Naval Design in La Spezia (followed by gaining valuable work experience in Intermarine and Ferretti Yachts), he moved to Australia. At Peter Lowe Design Studio he designed his first boat, a 70-foot fiberglass yacht, launched six months later.
On his return to Italy Michele became Francesco Paszkowski’s right-hand man in his renowned studio in Florence, contributing (during the seven years of his stay) to many successful projects for San Lorenzo, CRN, Baglietto, Heesen and Tankoa in the position of "Head of Design Department".
Thanks to Lobianco's “out-of-the-box” vision and fresh approach to design, he was selected in 2014 to be a part of the following projects for Wider Yacht:
In 2018 Lobianco joined Dominator Yachts where he initially supervised the engineering and then later the construction process of two fully customized Ilumen 28m yachts, one of which has won The World Yacht Trophy in Cannes in 2018.
The experience gained both in design studios and in production sites has given him a 360-degree design vision. It's the testimony of rational rigor combined with flexibility of reconciling an attractive yacht design with valuable technical solutions. It's the story of eliciting emotions and enhancing comprehension of “form follows function” approach.
