Our Yacht design agency

Attentive to the shipowner…
At the service of the boatbuilder…

Our naval architects' office offers you services in yacht design, naval engineering and project management.

More than 15 years of experience dedicated to the design of large sailing yachts Monohulls and Multihulls. Custom-made projects, personal and sometimes atypical specifications: this is our speciality and this is our knowledge.

Specialised in the design of large cruising yachts, we carry out the entire study of the vessel, from the drafting of the specifications with the shipowner, until the execution drawings for the shipyard, right up to the delivery of the boat and very often the first sailings alongside a delighted owner !



Designing a boat requires real know-how, experience in navigation, in construction but also and perhaps above all: common sense.

Common sense because architecture is a science!

A science that requires making the right compromises on behalf of the shipowner and thus ensuring the delivery of the boat in accordance with the state of the art and in total adequacy with the initial specifications of the owner. This common sense, this intuition in the design, architectural and therefore technical choices, is acquired through experience: contact with the shipyards, confrontation of opinions, construction and sailing habits.

Our experience is coming from many years spent in the design office, working closely with boilermakers, laminators, painters and other fitters. We owe it to our close collaboration with our partner shipyards, for which we often provide design office services, communication assistance and also occasional advices on material purchases, etc.

Our office is “immersed” in the life of shipyards, close to their problems in order to understand their constraints, their expectations and then their progress objectives.

Our office was created more than 12 years ago. 12 years preceded by 5 years for its founder, as naval architect / director of the design office of a large custom-built shipyard: this is what gives our team its legitimacy. This is why we propose ourselves as YOUR contact and the yacht designer for YOUR project.

Our office is equipped with the best tools to design the most precise and personalized units.

Software to visit your boat (interior and deck) with Virtual Reality Helmet, CAD software for an exceptional precision of the production plans, a large network of builders, equipment manufacturers and subcontractors all over the world, able to assist us in the realisation of your dream:
