‘Yacht Designer’ - Anyone who can draw?
Stakeholders have suggested that the title of 'superyacht designer' should be earned through merit …
There are quite a few paths that one can take to become a superyacht designer. In the UK you can go to Southampton Solent university and study Naval Architecture, and then go on to a masters degree in Superyacht Design. In Milan, you can also do a masters degree in yacht design at the ISAD design school. The course is taught in both Italian and English and also features guest speakers such as Mario Pedol - the designer of 180 metre Azzam. There is also the option to bypass the academic route and apply as an apprentice at most major superyacht shipyards in Europe.
