A Passion for precision

From the largest hull to the smallest detail, every component of our yachts is meticulously designed and crafted. There will probably be some finite elements you may never notice. But combined together, they create something truly exquisite that draws attention. For all the right reasons.

It’s this fastidious attention to detail and dedication to developing long-term customer relationships that has defined who we are since we launched our first 31-footer in 1965. A lot has changed since then. But our passion for building the most stylish, elegant yachts will always remain.

Our exceptional build quality extends across our complete range of M Class superyachts, Flybridge motor yachts and V Class sports yachts. Every one provides the ultimate in comfort, luxury and performance. Every one is a beautiful obsession.

Caring for more than the environment

We set the standard for luxury motor yachts. And lead the way in environmental responsibility.

We were the first major European boat builder to be awarded ISO 14001, in recognition of our achievements in reducing our environmental impact.


Our groundbreaking resin-infusion technology almost completely eliminates styrene gas emissions in the workplace and local environment. This precision moulding technique produces highly efficient structures and reduces the use of carbon based materials both in the construction and the use of your yacht.


Every model built to CE regulations meets this independently verified environmental accreditation.

Our care for the environment has a direct and positive effect on you, our employees and the local community.
