With its streamline exterior and hull shape, it's no wonder the shark-inspired Hyperlien Shark Line 46 has won five design awards. See all the images here.
When Taiwan-based yacht designer Janus Huang couldn’t find a motor yacht that matched his aesthetics, he decided to design his own.
After six years, he eventually finished designing his ideal vessel and didn’t stop at one. His three yacht models have won seven international design awards thus far.
His 46’ yacht Shark Line 46 by Hyperlien Yacht has been one of his great successes, bagging the German iF Design Award, Italian A’ Design Award, German Design Award and Golden Pin Design Award, with its shark-inspired exterior and streamlined hull shape.

“I think the fashionable and manly Shark Line 46 will catch the eyes of those clients who like the modern style,” said Janus Huang. He also emphasises that “Shark line 46 evades the concretised design language and presents the perfect flow line of shark body abstractly.
“She has a luxury and trendy exterior, whether yachting or at anchor, she’ll always be in the spotlight.”
Described as “a sporty and elegant yacht with dynamic styling” by German Design Award, Shark Line 46’s colour scheme is an elegant metal silver black colour, with teeth as windows and gill slit as decoration of the stern, simulating the shark’s characteristics.
“I like her strong sportive style and the speed she shows,” Janus Huang said.
Whilst the exterior is all streamlined and powerful looking, Shark Line 46 exterior is more delicate, bringing a great outdoors/indoors balance.
Bringing more than 20 years space design experience to the table, Hyperlien Yacht has made a point of making this motor yacht feel light and spacious with the addition of a large glass sunroof.
“I believe our design makes a breakthrough in yacht world. Comparing the same level products of other famous brands, now customers can buy a yacht with relatively bigger space, comfy and homey design and performance which is closer to their requirements. Doesn’t it sound attractive?” concludes Janus Huang.
The ex-factory price of Shark Line 46 with standard equipment starts from 650,000 USD.
