Nuvolari Lenard

The most active design studio in Italy

Dan Lenard, stylist, and Carlo Nuvolari, Naval Architect and Mechanical Engineer, founded Nuvolari Lenard studio in 1992, in Italy, just out the old town of Venice. Both sharing the common passion for sailing and spending as much of their free time at sea (as guest of customers, on sea or simply on their boats, unfortunately not as long as they would like), it was clear their association would give birth to an active and passionate design studio. Both have a strong relation with the sea and the style, and it is clear the influence that a jewel as the town of Venice had on their professional formation: architecture and water, strongly related.

Nuvolari Lenard is well known for its “Italian Style”. Its Design Centre, located in the surrounding of Venice, hosts many designers and architects who work at several tasks. From superyacht design (bespoke or production ones) to interior design through residential interior design. Worldwide acclaimed, Nuvolari Lenard is certainly the most active design studio and among the largest in the world: having built (or currently in process) more than 520m of superyachts is an impressive record! Being busy means also having an important part in the industry: Nuvolari Lenard’s office routinely host artists who expose their pieces as  sculptures,  paintings,  pictures and also hosts many students coming from the best Design Schools of the world. Since 2010, they are also sponsoring and supporting a course in Yacht Design at Architecture University of Venice, where Carlo Nuvolari and Dan Lenard are having regular lessons. The studio also  hosts a scale model  workshop which is integrated in the Yacht Design section and  helps very much the designers to visualize and research shapes, before finali design is operated by tridimensional computer aided techniques.

Nuvolari Lenard designed yachts have been built by the most famous shipyards as Oceanco (109m BRAVO EUGENIA in 2018 or S/Y BLACK PEARL, 106m, in 2016), Lurssen (the famous 88-metre QUATROELLE, delivered in 2013), Amels, Palmer Johnson, Perini Navi or CRN Ferretti (55m ATLANTE, 2015). All the yachts are built by the design and under the supervision of the studio, who assist the Owner and the Captain in all the design building and delivery procedure. Together with Imperial, Nuvolari Lenard created the interior atmosphere of GRACE (Amels 52.30m, 2009): she would certainly not be the last common project of the two companies!

Delivered in 2009 at Amels shipyard with an airy and modern interior designed by Nuvolari Lenard, GRACE is a timeless vessel. Read more here.
