Unveiled for the first time at the 2016 Palm Beach International Boat Show, the Goldfinch Sygnet is the first grand piano designed exclusively for superyachts. It is also smallest grand piano in the world.

Available with Goldfinch’s renowned Virtuoso self-playing feature, which will allow for entertainment without a pianist with the swipe of an app. The Sygnet can be tailored to suit the needs of the yacht owner. With chic, traditional styling and beautiful contemporary curves, it’s the perfect design statement for even the cosiest of corners.

“The Sygnet has been meticulously designed to perfectly fit aboard a superyacht with its graceful curves and unparalleled elegance,” says Goldfinch director Tomas Norman, whose family has been handcrafting fine pianos for more than 40 years. “At Goldfinch we love nothing more than blurring the lines between timeless tradition and contemporary British art, but it’s not all about good looks – our craftsmanship is combined with cutting edge technology for a seamless finish and ultimate musicality.”

The Sygnet is a 127-centimeter, self-playing acoustic grand piano hand built in Cambridge. It features wireless iPod controls, inspired English design, a solid spruce German “Strunz” soundboard, “Abel” hammers and state-of-the-art Carbon Fiber action.

“Northrop & Johnson is delighted to help Goldfinch unveil its newest creation, the Sygnet — a unique piano that is a perfect symphony of music and design and is beautifully suited for the yachting industry,” says Northrop & Johnson Strategic Partnership Director Ottaviano Iacono. “Sygnet, along with its creator, Tomas Norman, both will be present with Northrop & Johnson at the 2016 Palm Beach International Boat Show, where Northrop & Johnson clients will have the opportunity to witness this exceptional marriage of music, technology and aesthetic first hand.”
