20-years of experience in Naval Architecture
The office of Visser Yachtdesign is located across the street from the famous “Waterpoort of Sneek”, in the center of maritime Friesland.
The Job of the naval architects at Visser Yachtdesign starts by listening to the client’s wishes, shipyard or private client and ends after the launch and christening of the new vessel. All designs (more than 800 since 1993) are made and built according to the latest techniques. Visser’s 20 years of experience, an international network and lots of local contacts are the basis of good co-operation, before and during the building of your vessel.

Tailor made – Your wishes translated in to your personal design
Before we start drawing, we take time to investigate your wishes concerning cruising-area, styling and comfort aboard. According to the outcome of this meeting we start the process by designing the hull’s lines plan and a 2D general arrangement.

A 3D Model of your ship – Raw or in detail
The logical next step in the development of your boat is a 3D presentation of the interior and exterior. We can keep it simple, just to judge the shapes, lines and spaces or we can make a completely detailed model to see the end result before the build has even started and/or which can be used for sales purposes.

The production – from construction drawing till building kit
When you are satisfied with the design of your ship, we will start, in close collaboration with a builder of your choice, working on the complete Build Information Package. Our aim is to generate our construction drawing and plate expansions into a building kit which makes the actual build the most efficient and according to the rules you have expressed.

Service until you sail
After delivery of all required drawings, we will stay committed to your project until the moment you are completely satisfied and are ready to enjoy your new vessel!
