The ElevateNautica difference

We believe that your marine craft deserves nothing less than excellence. At our core we have our design ethos of no compromise between functionality and aesthetics. From concept to production drawings and project management, we devote ourselves to understanding your unique desires for your yacht's makeover. We translate this into detailed technical specifications, 3D/2D design packages, and work packages, ensuring that every aspect is meticulously considered and nothing is overlooked.

Thorough design process

Our approach revolves around understanding your specific preferences, how and where you intend to use your boat, and your vision for its transformation. We create designs that breathe life into your vision by focusing on every detail, the ones that you've thought of and the ones we don't want you to miss. This shared understanding between owner and boatyard allows for seamless collaboration, resulting in a breathtaking and original marine masterpiece that will be enjoyed for years to come. This is your re-fit, reimagined.

Front-end problem solving

As naval architects and marine designers, we understand the complexities of every aspect and system on your boat, and the challenges they can present. With this "whole craft" approach to design, we're able to identify and address potential issues before they become costly setbacks. This ensures a seamless process with fewer delays, better cost control, and a smooth, enjoyable experience

Comprehensive, easy-to-understand designs and specifications

Our designs and specifications are widely regarded as the single point of truth for both owners and shipyards. Essential to the success and smooth running of any refit project, these ensure that everyone involved has a shared understanding of the project's scope and goals. This enables us to get initial comparable quotes from multiple yards, constructs a clear vision, and streamlines communication between all parties, leading to exceptional refits that always exceed expectations.

-  Solved problems I didn't know existed  -

"I have a classic yacht that was in need of some major restoration. But in order to have a yard do the work, I needed to have my vision for it to be able to be interpreted by others. 

Jon went through the boat bow to stern giving great suggestions and ideal solutions to problems or uncertainties, some that I didn’t even realise existed. After a few days, Jon presented me with a very detailed specification list that was easily understood by the yard. He is an excellent source for any information regarding refits and restorations."

We’ll start by understanding the current condition of your marine craft and your vision for her refit. Together, we'll consider how you use and want to use your boat, where you'll enjoy her and who you'll enjoy her with. 


Let us take care of the details

We'll deliver full specifications for every part of your refit, from the engine to deck to galley design. From fixtures to fittings, we'll recommend the things you have thought of and suggest a few things you haven't. 


Bring the beauty back to your craft

We’ll move forward with the design and build. We keep you informed every step of the way, but you never have to be the project manager -unless you want to be. We’ll handle everything for you.
