Michiel de Vos

Naval Architect

Scandinavian sailing holidays with parents, racing on the European regatta circuits and eventually stepping it up to a couple of years on the blue highway with J- Class Shamrock V, really got that boat vibe going. Always sketching and drawing boats (and planes..) ultimately led him to pursuing a career in yacht design.

Riekus de Vries

Naval Architect

Growing up on the banks of a river near Amsterdam, Riekus’ interest in sailing and boats in general started on an early age. International holidays on the water, dinghy sailing and keeping a traditional tug boat up and running, got him hooked and led him to study Naval Architecture.

"Our aim is to translate the client's wishes into creative, innovative and practically grounded designs"

deVosdeVries design

Situated on one of the canals in Amsterdam, deVosdeVries design is an all-round, dynamic, design and naval architecture studio, specializing in the exterior and interior design of yachts. With over 20 years of activities in the yachting sector, Michiel and Riekus bring a variety of experience to your project.
Approach. Combining aesthetics with functionality and creating a design that works, looks unique and fulfills the clients wishes is our goal. Listening to and being inspired by the client is the first step toward that goal and this will lead us through the entire design process from the first sketches all the way to the build phase. All steps in between can be tailored in order to suit the clients specific requirements.
No matter what style you are pursuing, we would like to explore it with you. Having worked with a diverse international clientele and a variety of renowned shipyards we hope we can add value to your project.
Please take a look at our portfolio.

"Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away."
