Have Portfolio, Will Travel


Having started his career in yacht construction inside the Pendennis Shipyard, Oliver Stacy chose to enter the cutting edge of superyacht design, working alongside Martin Francis in London. He founded his own studio in 2012.

Now with the Monaco Yacht Show looming, he is packing up his portfolio case and carrying it to the show in the hope of drumming up business. Backing up the drawings is a new Web site showcasing his concepts, projects and philosophy.

With a focus on conveying his holistic and meticulous approach to both motor and sailing yachts, the site reflects the understated and focused attitude with which he tackles each design brief.

The website also includes information about three of the studio’s current concepts, at varying degrees of completion, with scope for adaptation to a particular owner’s requirements.

These include an 85m motoryacht (with an exploration version based on the same platform also under development), a 55m exploration yacht and a 36m sailing yacht, with naval architecture from Hugh Welbourn.
