Sabdes designs large and modern superyachts, predominantyly luxury motor yachts.

SABDES is a visionary Superyacht design studio; our mission is simply to create extraordinary designs. We develop concepts into final proposals, combining innovative design with contemporary arrangements. A high focus of our work is on producing initial concept and exterior design solutions.

SABDES pursues an active market strategy based on two different design approaches and related activities;

The development of our concepts, to be tailored to clients needs – the three projects on our website, have already been presented to the press: the 70m, and the 50m Mono and Cat, with other designs to follow.

The development of new designs based on specific requirements outlined by clients.
Our design services target three distinct types of yachts; Custom build 50m to 170m (165′-550′), Semi custom 40m to 60m (130′-200′) and Production 24m to 45m (80′-150′).

All projects SABDES undertake are tailored to our customers needs. Clients can contract us to complete full concept to final designs or just use a portion of our services, such as styling. Whichever way, SABDES holds our customers projects in the strictest confidentiality.

    Here is some more about SABDES Design:

    The processes required to create extraordinary yachts balance art with science; we look at yacht design holistically, with a knowledge of design and styling crossing the full spectrum of industrial design and an engineering knowledge evolved from working on many new vessel designs and newbuild projects between 25 and 131metres long.

    SABDES brings our innovative concepts into engineering reality by beginning with sketching exterior styling proposals, and going on to model every aspect of the exterior and interior using high end 3D computer modelling programs. We develop the ‘concept design tender’ and ’statement of owners requirements’ against which Shipyards can bid. If desired we can be engaged by yacht brokers or builders from the early design stage, bringing into the project their long standing experience of new constructions. Final design is guaranteed by the Shipyard and their Engineering and Naval Architect teams.

    SABDES are proactive in developing Yachts with a minimal environmental impact. We research technology and products that help reduce the need to burn fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions. Whenever possible, sustainable manufacturing materials and methodologies should be used. Yachts systems can be optimised to ensure minimal power consumption, and could be supported by energy sources produced by the sun and wind. Hull designs can be optimised for minimal surface and hull wake, improving fuel efficiency and reducing the impact on sensitive marine life and shorelines. Hybrid propulsion brings the ability to cruise in ‘zero emission’ mode into a reality.
