Humphreys Yacht Design is a family run naval architecture and yacht design business, with a heritage which spans over 40 years. The studio combines the latest in design technology with an experienced team of designers, and its performance pedigree underpins a technical expertise that few other design houses can match. Coupled with strong stylistic flair and an approach to designing yachts that places the clients’ wishes and aspirations first and foremost, the discernible theme that runs through all the studio’s projects is the combination of efficient, easily driven and seaworthy sail and motor yachts, overlaid with the distinctive aesthetic and functional requirements of the owner.
