The PYD team is a group of young but experienced designers from different countries, each driven by a passion for yacht design.  We work tirelessly to create exceptional craft that exceed our clients’ expectations.  The team’s diverse skill set covers all aspects (both technical and artistic) of yacht design (see our ‘Specialties’ section of this website for more).

 The team is led by Chris Peart, who founded the company in 2020.  Chris built on his arts and Vehicle Design background to earn a Masters in both Mechanical Engineering (2007) and then subsequently in Naval Architecture from Southampton University.  This, along with his experience, places him in a unique position to be intricately involved in all aspects of a project, from styling to hull design through to systems and structures, all working together seamlessly and efficiently.  Chris has been designing state-of-the-art yachts and high-performance powerboats for over a decade, with projects built all over the world.
