|OYI has great Yacht Design Support||Yacht Designers|
In asking several Naval Architects and Yacht Designers to contribute their efforts to make this site unique and worthwhile, I have focused on a small group of designers who have created some of the most significant vessels amongst possibly the most important group of designs that exist in the world today.
The fact that each designer has achieved world acclaim for their successes in international ocean racing is no co-incidence. My own ocean racing background which preceded my career skippering mega-yachts, makes me a firm believer of the grounding in seamanship and safety necessary to succeed as an ocean racing designer.
Knowing each of these designers as racing yacht designers first, and seeing the manner in which each has progressively designed larger vessels, confirms my view that they are at the pinnacle of their field, capable of providing a client with a custom yacht that will exceed expectations. Their racing background also provides a performance element when required, adding to the enjoyment and re-sale value of their designs.
Numerous other designers can be added to this forum, but the experience that these gentlemen have gained, each having some 3 decades of design experience, places them as equals to any of their peers. With designs from the extremes of Mirabella V, at 247’, the world’s largest sailing sloop, to custom yachts built by Royal Huisman, CCYD, Jongert, Perini Navi, Lurssen, Davenport, Pendennis, Camper & Nicholson and Nautor’s Swan amongst numerous other yards, these designers have really produced the goods, when it comes to large yachts. Their combined portfolios of current work ranges from custom and production designs of 70’ and above, as well as mega-yachts from 100’ up to 200’ and even larger.
All are these designers bring to the table the experience of designing yachts for production builders as well as custom builders, and all are very accomplished interior designers. This is a consideration all to frequently lost in a new builds, where-by the experience the lead designer brings to the project can amount to significant cost savings, in lieu of the costs a separate designer/stylist brings to the project.
My personal acquaintance with each of these designers affords me ready access, assisting me to gain worthwhile contributions for my clients from these great designers.
Amongst the designers who will be contributing their insights and designs to the ‘forum’ are…
Other designers and builders from the likes of Sparkman & Stephens, Palmer Johnson, Ed Dubois, Alloy Yachts and Perini Navi and others continue to design, build and break new ground while knocking down barriers in the pursuit of designing and launching a new bread of sailing yachts, some looking ahead with break-through technology, whilst other are launching their newest designs incorporating the traditions and aesthetics’ of the classics.
New technology with solid tradition is producing magnificent vessel of 80’ and above to satisfy all whims or conservative desires of any buyer. The designers featured here are all able to bring ideas to fruition based on the most conservative or outlandish concepts.
I hope you enjoy the visits to their individual sites, and I offer my assistance to you, should it be required.
