A TALENTED student at the University of Portsmouth has helped design the world’s first super-yacht with panoramic windows – and is now dreaming of designing his own from scratch.

Stefan Burt, 21, formed part of the team at Sunseeker that launched the 28m yacht at the London Boat Show this month.

The third year design and innovation undergraduate, who is spending a year at Sunseeker’s Poole design headquarters, said: ‘I’ve been working as part of Sunseeker’s interior design team and am having a fantastic year.

‘At the moment it is very exciting as we have just launched the new super-yacht and that’s one of the yachts I’ve been a draughtsman on.

‘I’ve always been a keen yachtsman but it never occurred to me that one day I could be working with and designing some of the best luxury motor yachts in the world.’

He added: ‘Now I have worked at Sunseeker, I’d like to develop my skills further and eventually design my own concept yachts.’
