It was inspired by the Japanese design of the Sinot Yacht Design.The highest priority for Jämsén in designing Syzygy 818 was to make the yacht comfortable for the owner, and as a result added features that had never been included in the Feadship, such as handrails with push buttons on the balcony and the front door owner in the VIP cabin on the upper deck.The author tried to make the design calm and elegant. As for details, they were supposed not to be evident. Only when all these features were achieved, Jämsén considered his project successful.
