Next week’s Palm Beach Boat Show will see Northrop & Johnson launch the world’s first superyacht grand piano

It’s a problem we’ve all faced – you want to be able to treat your superyacht guests to a spot of post-dinner Prokofiev, but there’s not quite enough room in your saloon to fit a grand piano.

Well brokerage firm Northrop & Johnson has solved this problem by teaming up with Goldfinch to create the world’s first superyacht grand piano.

Goldfinch SygnetThe Goldfinch Sygnet (pictured right) is the smallest grand piano in the world, measuring 127cm wide, making it ideal for superyacht use.
Tomas Norman, director of Goldfinch, said: “The Sygnet has been meticulously designed to perfectly fit aboard a superyacht with its graceful curves and unparalleled elegance.”

Hand-built in Cambridge, the Goldfinch Sygnet features a self-playing mode, wireless iPod controls, a solid spruce Strunz soundboard and Abel hammers.

The superyacht grand piano will go on display next week in Florida as part of the Palm Beach Boat Show (March 17-20).

By the time the Monaco Yacht Show rolls around in September this may well be a must-have amongst the Monte Carlo jet set. But if you ask us, you just can’t beat the simple symphony of two shaft-drive engines roaring away at 30 knots.
