Versatile design services for optimising vessel performance

We can create interior designs for a range of styles, including classic, high-tech and contemporary, while optimising form and function for every ship.

Our first designs in the 1960s were made for yachts, but we have expanded to provide services with a focus on passenger areas for vessels such as ferries, cruise ships, and dredgers as well as military and fishing vessels. In 1990, we extended our range of services to include turnkey interior outfitting.
