Outfit Design

Outfit Design

The exterior outfit engineering of a modern yacht is a specialist domain demanding a high degree of multi-discipline experience, understanding of the yacht’s overall aesthetic and style, as well as unfaltering attention to detail.

The overall design vision created by the designer/stylist will incorporate a multitude of fine details, many of which must be embodied within the visual appearance and integration of the exterior outfit necessary for the safe and practical operation of the yacht.

To achieve this, items of equipment must either be hidden, customised/restyled, or be of a completely bespoke design.

At BMT we work closely with the designer to understand the overall visual design intent and interface with the shipyard’s nominated and preferred suppliers to assure integration with other disciplines, develop customised or bespoke equipment and ultimately achieve the aesthetic goals. This is done whilst ensuring practicality is maintained for production, operation and maintenance.

The scope of our work in this field is diverse and typically ranges from feasibility studies for novel and complex features, detailed development of anchoring and mooring systems, concealment systems for lifeboats, life rafts, deck cranes and other ancillary equipment through to the fine production detailing for hand rails, window bonding systems and machinery ventilation louvers.

All such features can involve the co-ordination of information from multiple subcontractors, influence other engineering facets as well as have regulatory consequences. Our multidisciplinary team bring their breadth of knowledge, communication and design management skills together to ensure that a practical and integrated design is delivered.
