WERNER Yacht Design is a well established name when it comes to designing reliable and stylish motor yachts. Since the start, we have mainly focused on classics and retros, whether new build or refits. And therefore the base for the designs is not just a thorough understanding of naval architecture and engineering, but in addition, a profound knowledge of styles that prevailed in various periods of the nineteen hundreds. Decades as the 1920’s and 1930’s, as well as the 1960’s have produced some of the finest yachts in history. The designs can be carried out following a specific style, through to the smallest detail. Or alternatively, they can be carried out in a way that merely reflects on the glory days of yacht building, carefully balancing between modern days comfort and yesterdays intimacy. Having said this, there certainly is a shift in the type of requests we receive. Whereby we get requests for more contemporary designs over the last few years. That is a welcome development, but either way, the results should always be stunning, making a lasting impression on everybody who lays their eyes on the design.


88 ft. Flying Fortress The Flying Fortress; designed along the lines of the American Streamline Era of the 30's and early 40's. The time that aluminium alloys became strong enough to be used for aviation purposes. It stood for state of the art engineering; for the first time, engineers could combine strength and speed in a lightweight construction. As a result, every moving object had to be streamlined to be associated with speed. The design has been derived from the American WW2 B17 bomber plane, nicknamed the Flying Fortress. The construction is of composites; mahogany finished hull & a silver metallic superstructure. Length over all:...... 26.85 m Length waterline:... 25.00 m Beam max:.............. 5.90 m Draugth:................. 1.65 m


85 ft. Runabout Combining the best of American, Dutch and Italian design and carefully balancing between contemporary and classic influences, this yacht will have many admirers wherever you take her. It is long, sleek, and it clearly has potential, yet it will never be provoking. And due to the deck layout and the position of half open bridge, from where you can oversee virtually all of the exterior, it will be a joy to take her out yourself, without always having to depend on a crew on board. You demand performance, desire style and appreciate the privacy; this yacht offers it to you. Length over all:...... 26.00 m Length waterline:... 24.20 m Beam max:............. 5.95 m Draugth:................. 1.60 m Speed:..................... 44 kn


72 ft. Runabout This sketch design has been commissioned by Harwal Marine, The Netherlands. Based on what they had seen of our other runabouts and Commuters, they wanted a design with the same appeal yet fitted with double Volvo Penta IPS 900 propeller pods, whereas the other runabouts and commuters all have conventional drive shafts. In addition we gave the design a little more length as well as extra beam. This has resulted in improved interior space as well as a cockpit that is far more spacious than the other designs. Recntle the yard launched a very small 9 mtr. Runabout. Length over all:...... 21.80 m Length waterline:... 20.10 m Beam max:............. 5.60 m Draugth:................. 1.60 m


Introduction When I started Werner Yacht Design in 1997, I was convinced that yacht designing had to be approached differently from what I had seen around me. The demands on the interiors seem to dictate the looks of the exteriors. Whereas, in extreme cases, styling would be the outcome rather than the starting point for the design. In my opinion one has to establish the styling first, and then design the exterior and interior layouts simultaneously, without preference for one or the other. We find a style that suits you and apply this consistently and in harmony to the design. We meanwhile respect the limitations of an optimum lines plan as well as the size of the human body regarding optimum interior dimensions. When it is not possible to fit in all the your wishes, we always advise to scale up the overall dimensions of the yacht a little. A few percent extra in length can make just that difference inside, while good looking hull and superstructure lines remain. And that is what it is all about after all, the result should always be stunning. The yacht, once launched, shall attract the eye of everybody passing by.


69 ft. Commuter This is, among our Commuters and Runabouts our favourite. We have combined all positive aspects of the other designs in this one. It shows a potential for speed, like the 68 ft. Runabout, as well as the graceful lines of the 68 ft. Commuter. The design has been based upon a composite construction method. However, we have designed the layout of the construction in such a manner, that an alloy hull construction is easily feasible. For both construction methods, we have applied the Lloyd's SSC rules, calculating to their highest standard, G6. Length over all:...... 20.90 m Length waterline:... 19.58 m Beam max:............. 5.12 m Draugth:................ 1.55 m Speed:...................... 30 kn


42 ft. Runabout This design was initially set out with conventional drive shafts. However, during the design process, the client changed his mind, and ordered the design fitted with Volvo Penta IPS propeller pods. In close collaboration we remodelled the underwater body accordingly. This has resulted in a continuous deep-V underwater body with fine entry lines in the bow section. In addition we have recalculated the construction scantlings so the yacht can maintain higher speeds on rough seas. This yacht will be built by Harwal Marine in the Netherlands. Length over all:...... 13.20 m Length waterline:... 12.20 m Beam max:.............. 3.90 m Draugth:................. 0.90 m Speed:...................... 32 kn


41 ft. Commuter They don't come any sweeter than this. This 41 footer has already been nick named the baby-commuter. Although she does not have much to do with the New York commuters of the 1930's, it obvious where her name comes from. In fact the assignment was to design the best looking yacht ever, based on our larger commuters. The client's priorities: Hull shape first, styling second and interior space last. And he is right. When the required interior space is not available, then scale her up a bit, but do not seek the solutions in extreme beams, large freeboards or massive superstructures. Length over all:...... 12.50 m Length waterline:... 11.70 m Beam max:.............. 3.65 m Draugth:................. 1.00 m Speed:...................... 30 kn


30 ft. Runabout This 30 ft. Runabout has been designed in cooperation with Visser Compas, the Netherlands. Although shaped to the lines of the US Runabouts of the 1930's, at a level of naval architecture it is a different story. Very fine waterlines in the bow, like most of classics, combined with a full deep-V aft body like modern speedboats. This balanced combination ensures a very fast and comfortable ride in high seas. In fact, the yard was stunned by its performance, the smooth ride and the cornering abilities when they first took it out for its trial runs. Length over all:...... 9.00 m Length waterline:... 8.10 m Beam max:............ 2.65 m Draugth:................ 0.75 m Speed:..................... 32 kn


Corvette 28 There are shapes around us that make a lasting impression and eventually become icons. This applies for art, architecture, yachts indeed, but certainly also for cars. There are many cars that have become part of our collective memory, a Fort Mustang, Ferrari Dino, Jaguar E-type etc. This design has been inspired on just one of those icons of the automotive industry; the Chevrolet Corvette 1958. Everyone recognizes the back of the Corvette, the windscreen with wind-down side windows and the concave panel in the side. All blending flawlessly into the bow of a classic US runabout. Length over all:....... 9.00 m Beam max:.............. 2.60 m Draugth:................. 0.50 m Speed:...................... 35 kn
