Philosophy

We do not do custom yachts. Or tailored. What we do is beyond this. In fact, it is our ambition to go beyond everything thatt has been known so far in yacht building up to 24 meters.
There are clients on the market whose expectations are particular, one-of-the-kind, but yet unmet today: to own a medium-size yacht in every area exactly as they want it to be. Some already have the initial concept and design, and need technical guidance. Some have nothing but their desire and vision. None of them would have their dream yacht built - until now. And here is why.
Most shipyards fear the challenge of pure creation and crafting it into reality. They fear the unknown and the unexpected. They put “custom” label on a combination of mass production and items’ selection, and gently refuse a request that is truly individual, daring, different. Not us. We embrace the unknown and unexpected. We will refuse to design and to build a yacht FOR a client - we will only do it together WITH a client, and the more unexpected and unusual the idea, the better.

Heritage

Our location is our pride. Gdansk, beating heart of Poland’s Pomerania region, has been for centuries a paramount port city and shipbuilding centre of the Baltic area. Not long ago it has been a venue of events that changed the history of Europe. August 1980, strike in the Gdansk Shipyard led by Lech Walesa and creation of Solidarity, a great social movement, captured imagination of millions. Today Gdansk is a modern, European metropolis, economy based on knowledge, centre of culture and science.
And last but not least - it is home to new generation of Polish shipbuilders who are still acclaimed for their craft all over the World. These are the people of Gdańsk and Pomerania: hard-working, visionary and bold.
We seized the opportunity that we can source qualified naval architects, designers and craftsmen to build a new breed of yachts „Made in Poland“.
