Our approach is to focus on the big picture, methodically and repeatedly going through every element of the process. Each part is as important as the other and everything is interconnected – from a great-looking exterior style to the performance, seakeeping and engineering. We start with an empty piece of paper and end with a yacht that is splendid in every respect.
Stage 1: Preliminary Design
Every project starts with idea’s and a wish list, from this input we start working on the preliminary design where layout, sketches, mood board and artist impressions will support the design ideas.In the end of stage 1, we supply a set of drawings and technical documents to proof the feasibility of the project and sufficient information for a bid package to be sent out to a selection of shipyards.
Stage 2: Working out the final design
In this stage the project will be improved by repeating all design steps, and where all critical decisions are made. This is a very important stage as this is where the foundation is layed for the remainder of the design and engineering to come in stage 3 and during the build process.
Stage 3: Engineering
The engineering stage is the most time consuming part of the process, mainly on the preparation of construction drawings, system schematics, 3d shapes, 3d constructions, calculations on construction, speed and stability related subjects but also on communication with classification and flag authorities and off course the shipyard that is going to build the yacht.
Stage 4: Build Supervision
During the build process at the shipyard we will visit the yard on a regular base to inspect the work, assist the shipyard where needed. Our focus to the owners is towards safety, comfort and the pleasure that is such an important part in having your own yacht.
'Our website is a modest attempt to capture the essence of who we are and what we do. But the best way to really get to know us is to meet in person. We’re always up for a conversation about yachts. We would love to welcome you at our office in Holland or let’s meet elsewhere in the world'
All the best,
Frank and Bas Mulder
