Maybe I phrased it wrong, I mean they are all well known, but not the same. In fact they are quite different from each other if you compare to other designs.

I see. Well of course his designs (most of them anyways) are well known. Carinthia VI (the one) for example, but there must be some sort of design elements or concepts that are repeated right? or is it more a case of him creating a few amazingly innovative yachts that alone changed the way other designers drew their yachts?

Have a look at Oceanfast yachts (Australia) particularly from the mid 80's up till say mid 90's - JB had a big involvement. Go to Google- select 'images' and search for 'Oceanfast' - there you will see some further examples of the style of JB.

Carinthia VI (the one) is considered to be among the most beautiful yachts made, but at the time she was completed (1973) she "scared the pants off people" as Dicke Bannenberg said. What design features made her so terrifying and howcome she is widely recognized as a yachting icon? what's so special about her?

That was many questions. She was pretty big and not like ordinary white yachts to start with. Perhaps she is not the most beautiful yacht, but she really stands out and when you are close, you can see the finish and the details better. The blue perspex is one such detail.

I see. So the innovative features were mainly her colour scheme and size, and not so much elements of her superstructure? And i agree, up close she is magnificent. (saw her in monaco this summer )

You might have come across this article in Power and MotorYacht magazine; also has a extensive list of his designs. I would also email Dickie Bannenberg, I've had good response from him.

[ Sorry, Can't fix the link for some reason, Do a search at Power and Motoryacht magzine's site and you should find it. ]

There might be a reason why you can't fix that link.

paraiso

During the Cannes Boat show I had the chance to visit "Paraiso"; which as to my knowledge was the start of Bannenberg revolution. She is still in relatively good condition and awaiting the owner who would have the passion to care for her.

There are several good details in her design, but I have to admit that there are also several compromises in the space utilization in today’s standards.

She is still a very attractive lady though. I hope she finds a good home. By the way the present owners are very keen for a quick sale.

If not the start, so at least a part. She was built a decade later than Carinthia/The One, and was a twin sister to Azteca. Both aluminium constructions and built at the same time by the two Feadship yards, De Vries and Van Lent. Both were for the same Mexican owner who later built Eco, where Martin Francis reused some of the lines from the Paraiso design.

Hi,

You possibly could look to the the yacht Cedar Sea, one of his early nice designs, also Feadship and Luerssen in the North of Germany did build more yachts from Jon Bannenberg!
