Giorgio Vafiadis started his career in yacht design more than thirty-five years ago and founded Studio Vafiadis. Since his first superyacht, the iconic GRAN MUDDER (46m) delivered in 1983, he has created some incredibly beautiful yachts. Studio Vafiadis have set clear objectives, not only to assist and support its clients through innovative, inclusive and efficient designs, but to deliver excellent service by fully understanding the client. This entails understanding their lifestyle, hobbies, personal preferences and style.
Superyachts require space to be optimised. The owners and guests must feel comfortable and have their privacy, whilst the crew must be able to work discreetly, in addition to maintaining the vessel and its systems. Studio Vafiadis firmly believes that it is essential that crew accommodation is carefully planned and should also create a comfortable environment for the crew, who also live on board. Many superyachts provide crew gyms, relaxed spaces and more. As creative and innovative designers, they are also committed to new developments and to implementing the latest technological advances through state-of-the-art techniques, materials and ideas.
In a successful partnership with Imperial, Studio Vafiadis have collaborated on a range of impressive vessels. This includes the elegant RUSH (50m), the graceful OKKO (41m), the stylish PUMPKIN (50m) as well as the charming ELSEA (50m).
