Custom & Production Yachts

Britain is creative hub for yacht design. Archer Humphryes studio has projects that have an affinity for beautiful surroundings and the outdoor lifestyle. With a growing reputation and portfolio that translates life simply onboard an ocean going yacht as a home, commissions for handcrafted interiors of mega yachts and super yachts is a major part of the practice. Currently in development for individuals and boat makers, are high performance custom designs to production concepts for yachting lines across the world.

Sailing enthusiasts themselves, having first watched the America’s cup in 2003 off the coast of Auckland aboard Team New Zealand’s launch boat, owned by personal family friend, the late Peter Cornes. Peter, a lifetime member of Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron passion was recently described as: “Getting in behind sailors, campaigns and boats, Peter’s support was across all levels of the sport and stretched from Olympics to Classics.” Alinghi, under the navigation of Ernesto Bertarelli took the challenge and won. Team New Zealand were no match for the eventual five to zero win.

Excellence in detail is a vital component in building craft with innovative technology, and as yacht designers, we are interested in combining the materials of the composites and ground breaking naval structures with safe and graceful ingenious interiors. Highlights in current production include a 35 m sailing vessel line in Scandinavia to a 120 m leisure motor yacht in Europe. No project is too small or too large for us to provide innovative solutions. Working from concept to completion, project management is key to the design process with the boat maker. Design is not limited to interior and furniture creations, they can encompass future technology and aspirations that can be worked through with the naval architect to create a holistic yachting concept from exterior to interior.
