Laurent Giles have been Yacht Designers since 1927, and offer a complete Design service for clients, starting with Concept Design Development.

We work with the Client to establish a unique design brief which is developed by concept sketches and general arrangement ideas, feeding back to the Client at all stages, ensuring his complete involvement in the project.

Once initial ideas take shape we work towards preliminary general arrangements, profiles and deck plans before undertaking an initial 3D concept model.

Because we are Naval Architects and Designers the Client can be sure that the concept designs we develop will meet all Statutory, Class & Flag requirements.

Preliminary Design

  • Preliminary Deck Plans
  • Preliminary General Arrangement
  • Preliminary Profile
  • Principle characteristics
Preliminary Design

Once a Concept is established the next stage is to work this up in more detail. Using our preliminary naval architecture approach the principle characteristics of the design (dimensions, displacement, GT, speed, range) are established and the preliminary general arrangement, deck plans and profiles are developed.

Now the design is really starting to take shape and the Client can see details of how the arrangement will work, discuss and amend this with the Designers as the work progresses.
