Vitruvius Yachts by Philippe Briand

Under the Vitruvius banner, Briand has developed an instantly recognizable aesthetic that is efficient, practical and beautiful, covering the full spectrum of motor yachts from conventional Lifestyle cruisers to exceptionally adventurous Expedition vessels. Believing that the motor yacht market fits onto a spectrum with three major categories: Lifestyle yachts sit at one end, highly autonomous and specialized Expedition yachts are at the other, and versatile Explorer yachts sit somewhere in between the two, depending on their owners’ requirements for equipment. Naturally, all the yachts, whatever their category definition, need to be comfortable, seaworthy and efficient. Vitruvius Yachts are also 30% more efficient than other yachts of comparable size.

The impressive range of Vitruvius Yachts may range in size to over 100m in length, but Briand’s meticulous attention to detail means they are perfected to the nearest millimetre. This dedicated approach to intelligent, sustainable yet stunningly elegant design has been recognised internationally with 34 prestigious yacht awards so far. Philippe Briand has motor yachts under construction at Feadship, Perini Navi, Rossinavi and Sanlorenzo.
