Vitruvius Yachts had an impressive year of affirmation


vitruvius yachtVitruvius Yachts reported a milestone 2015 with numerous high-profile deliveries, awards and several projects confirmed for next year.
This year saw, among others, the delivery of three Vitruvius-designed motoryachts by Italian shipyard Picchiotti, as well as the conversion on the 71-metre explorer vessel Engima XK.
The London-based naval architecture and design studio also signed two new build projects at prominent shipyards, along with its first land-based project, a ‘land yacht’ yacht club based in Hong Kong, which is expected to be completed in 2017.
“We are excited by what the future holds at Vitruvius Yachts. As well as our ongoing relationship with Picchiotti, this year we secured some wonderful new projects that look set to take our designs in new and challenging directions,” said Veerle Battiau, Director of Vitruvius. “The vision of our head designer Philippe Briand, complemented by the skills of his 10-strong team of design and naval architecture specialists, is now to be realised by world-class superyacht builders in three countries within the next three years.”
The last year Vitruvius also was awarded an impressive amount of awards (six) for its 73-metre flagship yacht, Grace E, launched by Picchiotti in 2014.
