Marilyn de Vaal and Frank Pieterse, graduates of the
Art Academy of Utrecht. We had first intended architectural design. But after being asked to style our first motor yacht,
we were awarded for the design of the record-breaking Octopussy, and the even faster Moonraker. The success of
these super yachts proved, even to us, that we could create
an attractive space within a very complex technical structure.
The publicity about these two yachts spread quickly through
the yachting community, and we began receiving more opportunities to design yacht interiors for semi-custom and custom super yachts over a wide range of sizes.
Our work is inspired by our training in, and commitment to, contemporary art and architecture.
