The quality of living at sea 

What if…? An enlightened mind is brave enough to search beyond the horizon for new discoveries and experiences.

For someone used to making his own path, designing and building a yacht was more than just an opportunity; it was an imperative to challenge established norms. The chance to voyage unimpeded.
Kenshō is an invitation to be closer to nature. But it’s also the personal story of an enlightened explorer of ideas, and his quest to redefine the beauty, joy and profound pleasure of yachting; to revel in the spirit and thrill of navigation of the seas with all of its sensory splendor. Kenshō is the embodiment of something that is new, personal and ground-breaking.

The design team of Azure Yacht Design, Holger Schulze-Seeger, and Agence Jouin Manku dared to imagine more. Lead by their passionate and inventive client, they designed a ground-breaking layout that sets a newly minted standard in super yacht functionality and luxury. Noble volumes flow uninhibited through 2.7 meters ceiling heights. Sight lines to the horizon are maximized in all four directions. Modularity and flexibility are incorporated to accommodate different moods and evoke a broad pallet of emotions. This is fringe dwelling integrated and creative design that ventures beyond the expected. Kenshō is more than a name; it’s a philosophy, informing everything from the reconfiguration of space to the choice of materials and how they are formed. Kenshō herself reimagines the boundaries of the current status quo.

Like explorers, Jouin Manku approached Kenshō with open eyes, the enthusiasm and freshness of a novice, albeit with a vast savoir-faire in creating deeply personal works that redefine luxuries future. With their client and co-creator, they share the knowledge that anything is possible. Crew assembled, it was with an un blinkered spirit of discovery, that they set sail.

Kenshō's unique configuration optimizes the sensory experience of yacht life outside and in. Exterior spaces enhanced with a pureness of line and the augmented experience continues throughout the interior.



Yachting’s established codes are given new forms. Inspired by nature, noble materials which are artfully transformed in forms that are rounded and organic. From her hardscape to her soft touch interior, the narrative is coherent, seamless and contemporary. Teak, Marble, Onyx, Silk, Wool, Bronze and Glass, a diverse material vocabulary deployed in a deeply personal and poetic expression. The result is a new yacht born of history, tradition, values, myths, and story.

Kenshō flows. She is the embodiment of an inspired vision that furnishes an optimal sea voyage experience. Coherent and remarkable, Kenshō's identity is an invitation to experience yachting differently. Kenshō is an acknowledgment of where we have come from, but also of where we are headed.
