Designer description Pieter Beeldsnijder Design

Brand History

Peter Beeldsnijder Design was named after its founder Peter Beeldsnijder, who began his career in the late 50's. He opened a studio in the small Dutch town of Edam, north of Amsterdam.

Beldsnijder's style was influenced by the ideas of German modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.


The studio focuses on the client's needs.

«It's not enough for customers with grand ideas to take a boat «off the shelf», each boat is a dream come true and I want to make it 10 out of 10,"»explained Peter Beeldsnijder Design, founder.

The designer devoted his time to getting acquainted with clients, studying their tastes and purposes of using a yacht.

«It is important to know if a person likes to read, watch TV, whether there will be meetings with business partners on board, children», - said the designer.

This approach helped to direct the project in the right direction and became the basis of the brand philosophy.

Speciality .

The company is engaged in design, naval architecture and engineering: creating motor, sailing yachts and tenders.
