Globally-renowned designer Philippe Briand joins Superyacht UK

philippe_briand_imageOne of the world’s most sought after superyacht designers, Philippe Briand has become a member of Superyacht UK (SYUK) to capitalise on the innovation found in Britain.

Previously, as well as winning numerous awards, Philippe has rooted his business and home in the UK, relocating his Head Office to London to be “at the centre of the yachting world”.

As a French naval architect and yacht designer, Philippe first found acclaim designing sail boats, from the America’s Cup racing yachts to Jeanneau cruisers. He then turned his talents to creating innovative motor yachts, including this year’s award-winning Grace E. Today he believes the benefits of being a recognised member of SYUK in his drive to design the foremost yachts in efficiency and elegance.

A group association of the British Marine Federation (BMF), SYUK represents the interests of Britain’s superyacht industry, championing UK innovation, excellence and heritage. Already it boasts a membership of over 250 of the leading marine companies, from pioneering engineers to award-winning manufacturers.
