1. What’s the difference between Yacht design and Naval architecture?
Yacht design typically refers to the aesthetic and functional design of leisure boats, such as sailboats and motorboats. Naval architecture, on the other hand, involves the engineering and technical design of boats, including the hull, propulsion, and stability.
2. Can you create customised designs as per the requirements?
Yes, I am specialized in making customized designs over the years, I usually offer custom design services to meet the specific needs and preferences of clients.
3. What is the cost of your design services?
The fee for a boat design project can vary depending on the scope and complexity of the project. It is important to discuss and agree on the fee before starting work. We offer competitive pricing and are happy to work with clients to develop a budget that meets their needs.
4. What types of boats do you design?
I have expertise in designing a wide range of boats, including workboats, sailboats, rigid Inflated boats, racing boats, and luxury yachts.
5. How do I get started with the boat design process?
To get started with the boat design process, please contact us to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, we will discuss your specific needs and preferences and provide a quote for our design services. We will ask questions about the intended use of the boat, the number of passengers it will need to accommodate, and any specific features or amenities that the client would like to include. Once we have all the necessary information, we will begin the design process
6. Do you have existing designs that you can license to others?
It is possible to offer existing designs for licensing to builders. This can be a cost- effective option for you if you are looking for a ready-made design that can also be modified to meet your needs for an additional charge.
7. Does a customized design cost more than stock designs?
Customized design projects typically involve more time and effort on the part of the designer, and as a result, may be more expensive than stock designs. Before every new customized project, lots of study and research go into it. However, the cost can vary depending on the specifics of the project.

I have designed boats using materials such as HDPE, FRP composites, and aluminum. The choice of material can depend on the intended use and performance requirements of the boat.
11. Which rules do you follow for your designs?
I follow various rules and regulations in the design work, depending on the country or region where the boat will be used and the intended use of the boat. This can include safety regulations, construction standards, and environmental regulations. I often use ISO small craft standards in my design work.
