Belassi Wins the 2021 Red Dot Award for Product Design


The beautifully handcrafted Burrasca Marine Hypercraft, from Austria’s Belassi engineering team, received the prestigious Red Dot Award for Product Design 2021. The team is over the moon after receiving the award. They spent months on research and development. The design was inspired by the sharp lines of Italian motorcycles, and it shows. It was created by Genesis Design GmbH and Belassi Inhouse Designer Johannes Scherr.

The Burrasca is an elegant watercraft with sharp well-defined lines and coupled with the “Racing Red” and “Bright White” colorway makes for a stunning appearance. With its lightweight carbon fiber body and powerful turbocharged 320HP engine, this machine will scream across the water! The dual dashboards are the first of its kind with a fully integrated user interface. It is no wonder Belassi picked up a Red Dot Award, which dates back to 1955. It appraises the best products created every year and encompasses about 50 categories.

Manufacturers and designers can enter their innovations in the competition. The competition has grown exponentially over the years and the 50-person jury receives over 18,000 applications from over 70 countries. The jury looks at key categories like degree of innovation, ergonomics, symbolism, and emotional content. The Burrasca met and surpassed all those categories. A statement from the Jury reads: The Jetboat skillfully combines craftsmanship and technology. Its dynamic appearance reveals a deep love of detail.

The team is stoked to have won the award and vows to continue the adventure of creating and pushing the boundaries of what they can do with PWC design.
