Naval Architects & Yacht Designers

Your Yacht an Individual Masterpiece. Vitruvius Yachts focus only on creating customised yachts. The yachts are efficient, robust – and remarkable. Each project is an individual milestone, balancing tradition and innovation and always responding to the owner’s wishes.

Philippe Briand and his team start with the owner’s brief and everyone works together on the detail. The team bring to life all the owner’s ideas on the interior layouts and life on board.

How the owners use the yacht, what equipment to carry, where the yacht can travel – that is all an individual choice. Once the lifestyle demands are chosen by the owner the team can start to identify the volumes the yacht requires and present the owner with a first concept.

The Vitruvius team then start the naval architecture process for this bespoke yacht. A yacht needs the perfect ratios to create comfort at sea and at mooring. Only with meticulous bespoke architecture and more specifically the appropriate hull can this be achieved. A yacht needs to be stable and at the same time cut through the waves.
