Episode 46 – BOAT Briefing with the creative directors of Dutch design studio Vripack, Bart Bouwhuis and Marnix Hoekstra.
Perhaps it’s because Vripack is one of the oldest yacht design studios out there. Or maybe it’s down to the fact we have third generation creative directors at the helm. But an enduring trait of the Dutch design studio is our desire and ability to sketch yachts for all owners, transcending age, lifestyle and culture.
Sixty years ago we carved out a niche for creating the original explorer. We then set about growing our portfolio to encompass a full spectrum of boat design, from the world’s largest sportfisher to the only patented commercial hull. We’ve adopted our owner-centric approach, incorporated the latest software technology and cross-pollinated design from industry and nature.
Tune in to our discussion with Boat International to more about the latest projects on our drawing boards, from a 65m motor yacht ideal for Bahamian waters, to our recently launched motor sailer in Chile, to a 90m explorer.
Vripack: taking a sustainable approach to yacht design.
