Ideally, a yacht should afford maximum scope for dreams and wishes to come true. Which is why no concessions should be made to the ordinary or average anywhere on board. This can only be achieved by taking a radical approach and consistent action: the tried-and-tested has to be repeatedly reviewed, even the supposedly immutable may have to go overboard to make way for new and extraordinary solutions. While this may not be the easy option, it is certainly an exciting one – and one that is rewarded with surprising results in terms of planning and design. Time and again.View our projects Back
For a yacht to be a winner, the countless small details have to add up to a convincing whole – which is why FOCUS Yacht Design considers each project as a whole right from the start. The exterior, for example, is always the work of experts from various disciplines, who cooperate in a round-table process to mould the highly diverse input into one joint creative process. This results in yachts which can develop their distinctive individual characteristics simply because they take all the decisive parameters into account: not only the interior, but also aspects such as comfort, engineering and functionality. This holistic approach culminates in a harmonious overall effect that instantly underlines the vessel‘s uniqueness – and one that is ultimately pleasing in every single detail.
Clever combinations of different elements are the quintessence of style – and FOCUS Yacht Design prides itself on its ability to identify the essential character of a yacht's interior. The tasteful combination of eclectic, even contrasting shapes, colors and materials makes interiors come to life, effectively and impressively. The definitive touch that turns the unusual into the inimitable.

Shall we have a forward observation lounge, an owners cabin with a view of the sea or just plenty of room for guests, family and work? All these are thoroughly desirable amenities, but they come with a flip side – they all place demands on the available space. A solution was developed by us together with Abeking & Rasmussen which sounds a bit like squaring the circle: a yacht line with the layout of a 75-metre yacht, but on a 68-metre platform. It pursues the aim of creating the perfect balance between functional rooms and activity rooms. As a result of this principle, the ship gains in measurable and perceivable size. Its interior offers more space, light and comfort in practically profligate abundance, without any loss of external elegance. Sometimes, you see, less size is actually more.
A space ship? A praying mantis in the ‘transformer’ version? At first glance it is quite hard to decide what a Hydro- SWASH really is. No wonder, seeing that the latest SWASH design for Abeking & Rasmussen floats and flies in a class that is all its own. What differentiates the Hydro-SWASH from all earlier ships of the world is above all its performance. It floats high above the waves instead of just gliding through them. Flying and sailing become one – an inimitable yachting experience, which remains unruffled even at the highest velocity. Thanks to its SWATH gene, the futuristic day cruiser keeps an even keel in the roughest seas. In other respects, you can count on the Hydro-SWASH to generate a whole lot of positive excitement…
73.15 motor yacht
The name may be a little surprising, but otherwise Plan B is simply spot-on. The first and first-class 73 metre yacht proved itself to be the most successful opening to the story of success that is FOCUS YACHT DESIGN, and joined by a whole series of highly-regarded ships. Due in no small part to the principle of intelligent reduction: rather than taking into account what might be possible, it includes everything the owner actually wants. Applied consistently, this skilful restriction results in a spaciousness that can only be described as vast, and far greater functionality. Or, in other words: in more real luxury.
73.10 motor yacht
As with her sister ship Plan B, "reduce to the max" is also the key behind the success of Odessa II. The exterior design of this 73.15 metre yacht dispenses with any kind of frippery, appealing instead for her clear lines and clever proportions. A design that provides the ship with spaciousness and a sharp elegance – to say nothing of the successful exterior that increases the anticipation of the interior.
60.00 m concept
Simply building taller when more space is required is an adequate solution – for a skyscraper. But when it is a yacht, this option is accompanied by painful losses in performance and profile. FYD therefore opted for something different. In order to offer more volume on the inside without damaging the aesthetic appeal of the outside, the concept for the Pallas employs devices such as an almost straight bow and different deck and room heights. This makes the Pallas racy and sporty, but at the same time means it offers an almost sensational amount of space. A 60 metre yacht, in entirely new dimensions.
80.00 m concept
Some ideas the world waits for, but sometimes the ideas have to wait for the world. Which is what happened in the mid-1990s, when Thomas Mühe developed a yacht concept with a striking sloping side line that gave the ship a new dynamic, clearly evident on the 80-metre yacht Impala designed in 2008. This idea, initially viewed with some scepticism, is now widely recognised, and has become one of the most frequently requested stylistic devices – and a "signature line" of FOCUS YACHT DESIGN. An "early starter" than became a classic.
49.99 m concept
Even the limit of 499 gross tons is an indication of just how important every single cubic metre of space is on a yacht. Which makes it even more important to use it creatively. The concept of the Merideon shows us that size shouldn't only be measured in metres. The FYD design has optimised functional areas such as, for instance, only one staircase area. A saving that creates space for far more generous rooms, larger visible areas and the greatest possible comfort. Particular mention should be made of the Beach Club, directly adjoining the guest cabins and on the water. A unique example of how lovely efficiency can be.
24.00 - 45.00 m concept
An Explorer yacht is made for challenges. Not only for cruising, but above all for exploring the oceans playfully and sportily. For which she must be safe and highly functional. But not unattractive, as the Explorer concepts by FOCUS YACHT DESIGN demonstrate. They appeal for being Explorers, but also for being all yacht. With a functionality that is just as successful as its floor plan and space design. The best reasons for seeing the world on – and being seen on – an Explorer.
85.00 m explorer
In order to take on board everything you need for an active and adventurous sea voyage, you need tenders, a helicopter, submarines, motorbikes and other dynamic play and sports equipment – and above all a large Explorer yacht like Impact. At a length of 85 metres, she not only provides all the functional requirements, but also the desire for a genuine yachting experience. Which is why she has style, sophistication, excellent proportions and lots and lots of space – for chilling after all that rushing around.
32m motor yacht
A holiday dream in a ship: the sleek FYD 32 metre cruiser focuses entirely on pleasure, but also provides all the pleasure. Island hopping at maximum speed, chilling on the sun deck or in the stylish cabins, relaxing in the sauna or partying at the Beach Club. Incidentally, FOCUS YACHT DESIGN is one of the first designers to integrate both features on a ship of this size. With that, and many other large and small special features, this cruiser is the perfect vessel for an intensive lifestyle with speed, spontaneity – and good taste.
45.70 m motor yacht
The ultimate feeling, with little below. Maximum speed, minimalist design. Sporty simplicity, but with all the opulence that is typical of a yacht – the FYD concept for a 150 Open Concept combines opposites, dissolving them with charm. The result is something independent, something new: a ship with character and a common denominator for luxury and relaxation. Equally suitable for cool cruising in calm waters off the Bahamas or achieving personal speed records on the high seas.
67.5 m motor yacht
Is what is modern actually only modern if it is cool, sparse and uncomfortable? And by contrast, are feel-good and cosiness part of a lifestyle that is passé? Do we have to dispense with what is new in order to feel at home? The design of Skyfall provides clear answers: both are possible – traditional colours and modern design; lavish interiors and straight lines; coolness and cosiness. Opposites that attract – and get on extremely well together. Excitingly pleasant.
