Yacht designer: training to become a professional in a growing industry


Change of course for the nautical world after the pandemic. The sector, in fact, is getting off to a flying start with numbers that would appear to be truly encouraging.
The same Senior Partner of Deloitte, Tommaso Nastasi, stated that to date Italy is the leader in the global superyacht market.
According to a research by BOAT International, instead, for next year, the demand for luxury boats will continue to outstrip supply and the key to encouraging this trend is the professionalism and ability of operators in this market to provide immediate answers in terms of efficiency and reliability.
From the dawn of boating to today, the yacht concept has undergone a profound evolution: from simple means of transport, they have become floating containers of life and, at an increasingly high level, an expression of a certain lifestyle.
Inside, comfortable as a home. Outside, nautical gems that capture attention and excite.

The yacht designer's job

In light of this valuable recovery, for those who dream of become a yacht designertraining and acquiring skills in boat design and engineering could be an excellent starting point for a career in this fascinating industry.
Of course, it is not a profession for everyone; to become a good yacht designer you first need an innate passion for the sea and boats, but not only that.
A purely technical and engineering knowledge is not enough to become a skilled yacht designer; the world of luxury yachting requires attention to detail, knowledge of ergonomics, technology, materials, design history and art.
Conceiving and organising the interior and exterior spaces of a boat, drawing the lines of the external profile, requires skills very close to those of an interior designer, but, in addition, specific knowledge of ship design is needed.
The best yacht furniture designs are developed around the size of the yacht and how to make use of every available space, whether it is more or less extensive: even the most imposing yachts accommodate small spaces, it is all about knowing how to make each space as functional as possible.
Essential is the use of high-performance materials, and of no less importance is the choice of sophisticated and sophisticated furnishings.
