Custom Yacht Design
CYD designs custom yachts, and this market niche still plays an important role, especially for custom yachts made of wood, steel, alluminium or composites. We offers to the clients something unique that they have not found on the market. We work closely with the client, manually sketching to transform their dream into reality. Building a custom cruising yacht can be the epitome of an owner’s dream. CYD have extensive experience in wood design yachts both power and sail starting from cruiser boats in the early 1960′s up to today. CYD designed a number of wooden boats in strip-planked cedar, like the My Song 50 or CYD 4710 for Cantiere Alto Adriatico, and in cold-moulded wood, like Seridama built in 2010 by Cantiere Navale De Cesari in Cervia.
CYD’s founder Epaminonda Ceccarelli designed and built the first Italian mass-produced FRP boat in the early 1960′s, the Classis 26 then we can mention EC 21, Sciuscià, EC 26, EC31, EC 37 and Seariff. CYD works closely with the production framework, and Giovanni Ceccarelli has over 30 years of experience in yacht design for production. Giovanni Ceccarelli started in early 1985 with the mass-production of the Mini Tonner Mini Wing, after series-producing the Half tonner Audace. CYD currently has a range of production yacht designs for Rimar Yacht, Sirena Marine , Neo Yachts, Carnevali Yachts, Grand Soleil , Eleva Yachts with whom we have established long-standing relations.
CYD designs the interiors of our yachts. CYD designers closely cooperate with our clients, to create the best possible interior layout. The solutions we propose are a clear statement of our Mediterranean culture Sunny interiors, light colours, and Renaissance-like use of materials. We have established close relations with high end Italian furniture materials suppliers, leading worldfamous firms. We always start from hand sketches and rendering, to then move on to detailed 3D drawings and computer renderings. Deep commitment plays a pivotal role in the development of ideas and design to ensure that the final result is an expression of our job and the client’s ideas.
We design the exterior style for our yachts. Our design have clean lines and are durable in the time. We created the double eyes in the houses of Carnevali’ s yachts, and now we did the innovation of the shoreline of The Fifty for Eleva Yachts. When we design for an established yard like Grand Soleil we gave to them innovation but with the respects of their style and traditions.
