The exterior design process begins with a period of loose sketching and concept development in conjunction with the general arrangement. Once the owner has selected their preferred concept, Built Boats will produce a detailed 3D exterior ‘computer generated’ model, from which the shipyard can take accurate design information.
As well as being responsible for the exterior styling of the yacht, Built Boats will also develop the exterior deck, seating and dining areas, as well as swimming pools or jacuzzis, and supply the yard with 3D details of all fixed furniture, seating, bars etc. We will, of course, select the exterior fabrics and towels for you, choose the loose exterior furniture, as well as all the tableware for outdoor life.
As designers we will liaise closely with the yard on a regular basis for the length of the build process, to supply them with information and to resolve any outstanding design issues.
This is normally in the form of a monthly meeting held at the shipyard, as well as regular communication by e-mail /phone.
