Azure Naval ArchitectsCompany profile
Azure Yacht Design and Naval Architecture is an independent team of highly specialised and passionate designers, engineers and architects based in the Netherlands, working across a range of marine services.
From design and engineering construction support and supervision, to independent design projects, new builds and refits, the team at Azure is equipped to handle any project that comes to its desks. Over 15 years of experience, Azure's team of architects and designers has lent its hands to some of the most iconic superyachts on the ocean, inlcluding the likes of Jubilee, Here Comes the Sun, Aquila (ex Cakewalk) and Alfa Nero amongst others.
Azure has also worked very closely with Damen on its successful SeaXPlorer range, developing a dynamic and innovative series of modern explorers. Damen selected Azure to work with the yard on this flagship project on account of Azure's deep understanding of modern clients' desires and trends in the superyachting landscape; namely, to blend the hardy expedition qualities of a commercial vessel with the luxurious amenities of a superyacht.
Azure comprises a team of 30 multidisciplined and talented staff based in its Haarlem office, on the doorstep of some of the world's largest shipyards and at the global heart of superyacht build. The business offers a range of flexible services from technical design to weight calculations and hull form optimization, and has risen to prominence as one of the major names in yacht design and naval architecture in the modern day.
Azure Naval Architecture always strives for excellence, an approach it brings to every project. The team will dedicate time and effort to understanding and realising owner's dreams, with no project too demanding. This is backed up by a thorough knowledge and scientific research of the possibilities behind innovation.
