Trio of yachts

Our yacht designs have produced vessels which have proven to be capable of crossing open oceans with safety and comfort.  They are constructed by highly skilled craftsmen, using D.O.T. or classification rules.

First class equipment and machinery are installed in easily reached locations with essential services being duplicated.  Careful attention is paid to owner and crew accommodation and services.
