Philippe Briand has two studios, one in La Rochelle, France and one in London, UK. Between the two offices, there are 15 Naval Architects, Architects, Yacht designers, Product Designers and managers. Philippe Briand and his team have been designing yachts for over 40 years. At least 12.000 of his sailing yacht designs are in the water.
Briand’s self-sufficient sailing yachts appeal to owners who wish to minimise their impact on the environment while cruising. The efficient hull form characteristics of Briand’s designs mean that more power could be harnessed through underwater turbines to charge the batteries on board.
Philippe Briand is also one of the “founding fathers“ of Water Revolution Foundation and is a member of the Board. Water Revolution aims to be the central platform facilitating the shift towards neutralisation of the ecological footprint of the yachting industry. Philippe is passionate about leading a new wave of “green” sustainable superyacht design pushing the boundaries of technology and efficiency in superyachting.
