Designer description Rodriguez Group

By the 1960s Gerard was already a captain and a little later began giving advice to buyers of used yachts. After that he set up a brokerage company, followed by a world famous design studio.
The company tried to present the maximum possible choice to the customer. The team was never afraid to experiment, that's why unique projects that had no analogues with competitors came out of the pen of designers.
Sale, charter, repair, maintenance, berths - not a complete list of services provided by the company. Also Rodriguez Group is known for interior and exterior design for custom and semi custom superyachts.
