Large chined hull, inverted sheer, bowsprit, the Marc Lombard hallmark is easy to recognize. “A cruising yacht must be coherent and provide pleasure at sea. It must be as beautiful as it is sexy. Our vision of beauty is the overall effect of the volume distribution and this is always linked to purpose,” says Marc Lombard. An instant and long-standing success, ML Yacht Design designs many successful production boats for renowned boatyards such as the Bénéteau Group.
« “We like fast boats with their own distinctive personality. The boat that symbolizes our work best is the Figaro 2. She doesn’t look much, but she is a magnificent boat, a timeless classic that just keeps on giving…” » says the architect, whose approach is very cross-disciplinary, (sailing cargo ship, fast aerodynamically-lifted passenger boats, racing, cruising). ML Yacht Design is a leading naval architect’s office and has been producing a broad range of designs for nearly 40 years!
