DBYD is a creative design consultancy offering a comprehensive design capability to the marine industry.

Our prime activity is creating imaginative innovative designs for any type of boat. This is achieved by a design development process that ensures the technical, accommodation and visual qualities are in harmony.

Our philosophy is that we consider design to be a key strategic tool to the long term business planning of a company. It is only through considered and constant design activity that a company can maintain its market position. Design is the method of communicating a company’s message to both current and potential customers.

Thus we develop designs to not only satisfy the requirements of the people using the boat but also to express the corporate culture of the manufacturer and endorse the company’s brand recognition. This is equally important for a series production boat or a yacht created for a private individual.

Quality design translates to quality in the yacht produced in the factory thus enhancing the perception of the company in the market.

In the global economy, manufacturing companies can only ensure long term viability through identifiable quality design in their products.

Our design experience covers all types of boats for construction in either composites, aluminium, steel or timber. We can provide the necessary documentation for various classification societies:-

Lloyds Register of Shipping
ABS. American Bureau of Shipping
DNV. Det Norske Veritas
BV. Bureau Veritas
MCA. Maritime and Coastguard Agency
MSA. Maritime Safety Authority of New Zealand
NSCV. Australian National Standard for Commercial Vessels
RINA. Registro Italiano Navale
ISO. International Standards for Recreational Craft
AS. Australian Standards 1799 – Small Pleasure Boat Code
KR. Korean Register of Shipping

Our design creativity is supported by in depth analysis of market trends within the boating, industry and design trends in associated industries such as automotive, architecture, furniture and fashion.

One of our proven design strengths is creating designs which are relevant to a particular market, thus ensuring successful sales outcomes for the business investment.

DBYD is made up of a strong team of many design specialists. Depending on the type of service, our team has a wealth of experience for providing complete design and build documentation service to a very specific service as required.

With such a diverse range of design skills within our organisation we can draw on a wide variety of knowledge gained from designing many different types of products for many different industries and companies outside the marine industry.

Additional to the design of the boat itself our designers can create complete corporate design packages to complement the boat. Company logos and sales brochures, on board manchester – bed linen, towels etc, cutlery and crockery, corporate gifts etc.

From our many years of working with boat manufacturers in Australia on boats ranging from 2 M plastic dinghies to 55M motor yachts, we have an extensive network of contractors who are available to offer on -site assistance with vessel construction and interior cabinetry construction.

We have the services of one of Australia’s leading model makers for the construction of styling block models and highly detailed presentation models.
