A HOLISTIC APPROACH

INTEGRATED TEAMS CREATE BETTER DESIGNS WITH GREATER EFFICIENCY


When one observes our team putting together one of the highly complex vessels it is known for, you realize quite quickly that the key factor in the studio's success isn't state-of-the-art 3D software, lean manufacturing principles, its proprietary code or virtual reality - though we employ all of these; rather, it's our people, with all their passion and enthusiasm for the craft of yacht-building, and their comprehensive and shared understanding of the craft.

All our projects involve a multi-disciplinary team that is brought together specifically for that project from the day of commission. In practice, it means that while a designer is shaping a staircase, for instance, an engineer will be calculating the factors required to make it structurally feasible within budget; and while a naval architect is drafting the curve of the hull at the point where it meets the waterline, a designer will already be contemplating the interior layout that might best suit the other side of the curve. 

The tight integration of the disciplines; yacht design, naval architecture and engineering in service of a holistic approach allows the team to think laterally every step of the way, the result of which is much richer ideas and better designs, achieved with greater efficiency.
