Lines Plan

We believe that a yacht’s styling should be at one with its function neither dictating the other.

At the heart of every yacht is its unique styling. At Yacht Studio we believe that this unique styling should reflect the owner’s tastes, the way he/she uses the yacht, and the location in which it will operate.

We provide our clients with tailored methods of visualizing their yachts style, function and design. Working with each client, we will find the best-suited visualization method, be it technical drawings, hand sketching, full size mock-ups or photo realistic renderings. We consider the client’s interaction with the design and build process to be critical to success of the project. Tailoring a visualization technique to each individual client is key to ensuring the yacht fulfills that client’s every dream.

Yacht Studio are specialists in design and engineering. We provide exterior and interior design solutions that are integrated with refined hull form design and the latest in custom engineering, to produce striking high performance cruising yachts that exceed their owners expectations.

With a simple philosophy of creating the very best super yachts we have brought together a specialised team that can help realise your vision. Our team has worked with many of the top yacht designers, builders and interior fit out companies, as well as working on award winning super yachts, race winning performance yachts and on Americas Cup Campaigns.

Our design process includes the client at every stage, ensuring that their project goals are met when the yacht is delivered. We use the latest CAD systems, coupled with our own in-house Velocity Prediction Programs and Computational Fluid Dynamic analysis (VPP & CFD) to achieve this goal.
