Lobanov Design


Established in 2007, Lobanov Design is a young and dynamic yacht design studio specialising in the exterior design of the most groundbreaking superyachts on the market. Founded by Igor Lobanov with offices in Moscow and Barcelona, the studio is behind multiple award-winning yachts like Oceanco’s Y708 and the Oceanco flagship, 110m JUBILEE. However, the most impressive achievements were made in a field of new builds: Igor Lobanov’s very first new built yacht was signed for construction in 2008 and delivered in January 2013. She’s immediately joined TOP-100 and won 2 international awards for the best exterior design of the year.

Having grown up in landlocked Moscow, founder Igor Lobanov’s career began in pursuit of his passion for the automotive and aviation worlds. Degrees in maths, car design and a masters in transport design led him to a role within the exterior design department of an iconic automobile manufacturer, before a chance meeting with a superyacht owner in 2003 changed his trajectory entirely. The owner brought Lobanov on as his representative for a groundbreaking new 119m project in build at Blohm + Voss; a project that was to become the mighty motoryacht A.

About his work, Igor Lobanov says: ” Designing a very large yacht or contribute to the TOP-100 today is a big honor for Lobanov Design. Nevertheless we’re not aiming to design the largest superyacht ever or make the most number of superyachts in the water, but we certainly dream to design the most beautiful of the superyachts around. That’s our goal. And the best proof of it is a portfolio of our projects. It’s a part of our job to organize a whole process of designing and building a new yacht as a fun not only after the delivery but right from the very beginning.“ Driven by a desire to see more beauty in the world, Lobanov’s designs are sculptural and modern, each one an ode to proportion and integrity. Through hand sketching, 3D modelling, visualisation, GA development and detail development, the studio helps clients translate their dreams into the ultimate custom superyachts. Each project is as unique as its owner, embodying its own design language and style but always consistent in quality and ingenuity.

Together with Imperial, Lobanov Design completed AMORE VERO (Oceanco 80m+). Always very precise, keen to implement client’s wishes into the design and to keep the projects behind the locks the experience, Lobanov Design had, under the strict supervision of Imperial who acted as Build Supervisor, demonstrated how to take the confidentiality, the attention to the every tiny detail to a very new level again.

Delivered in 2013 with Oceanco and Imperial, AMORE VERO remains a model of her range and an iconic vessel since her launch.
