What we do

The OVM office has been involved in the construction, conversion and refit of over 600 projects since 1986. This has included private yachts as well as professional craft, new builds as well as conversions and refits.

We develop comprehensive, ready-to-build sail and motor designs and concepts, always searching for authentic and balanced lines. Beauty at sea is our responsibility too.

In the majority of our projects, we are responsible for the overall design, naval architecture and engineering. But we also provide owners and yards with separate design, naval architecture, engineering, consultancy and project management services. For many owners and yards we also work in cooperation with other specialists, in which case we concentrate on a specific part of the project only.

OVM has many disciplines under one roof and can operate with considerable flexibility, dealing with everything from aesthetic and creative issues to technical, ready-to-build solutions.

Our broad range of expertise and know-how is available as a tailored answer to a single question or as a comprehensive consultation for a more complex issue.

  • Exterior design
