A good looking yacht that suits all your needs perfectly is what you aim for when you have your own ship built. Leiden-based yacht designer Guido de Groot knows how to incorporate your demands into the most beautiful and practical boat you have ever seen. “Designing a yacht is always a combination of aesthetics and technique,” explains De Groot. “We strongly listen to our clients’ wishes, work closely with engineers and combine the needs of both into one design. The result must always be the prom queen of the harbour, because everything in the design is right,” he adds.
