Their best yacht is always the next

Giorgio Vafiadis started his career in yacht design 35 years ago. In 1980 he found STUDIOVAFIADIS. His first superyacht, the 46-meter, GRAN MUDDER, was delivered 3 years later in 1983, a huge vessel for that time and a great success for the newborn studio. Since then STUDIOVAFIADIS has created some incredibly exciting yachts. In 2013, his son Stefano joined his practice, awarder as the Young designer of the year in 2013.

STUDIOVAFIADIS objectives are clear. The designer does not only assist and support their clients through innovative, comprehensive and efficient design. The studio maximizes the performance of services through understanding the culture of the client, his lifestyle and aesthetics critical issues. Yachts are complex entities which require an optimization and appropriate use of space. Pleasing the Owner and guests is a requirement. For this reason, the crew must be able to provide the service and properly maintain the vessel and its systems. For STUDIOVAFIADIS: “Besides a suitable Owner & Guest Accommodation, a carefully planed crew accommodation should fulfill the crew personal and service needs; it should induce to an improvement of the crew morale and should develop an attitude to good and efficient service.”

As creative and innovative designers, STUDIOVAFIADIS commit themselves to the evolving developments. In addition, they stand ready to implement the latest technological advances through state-of-the-art techniques, materials and ideas. Interior design should echo the feeling of exterior styling while interior and exterior areas should flow nicely. Their creativity is coming from inside the yachts we design!

Together with Imperial, STUDIOVAFIADIS have a long and successful collaboration in some stunning yachts, such as the elegant RUSH (Mangusta 50m), the graceful new classic OKKO (Mondomarine 41m), the modern stylish PUMPKIN (Mangusta 50m) or the splendidly fabulous ELSEA (Cerri 50m).

Delivered in 2017, the biggest yacht ever built by Italian-based Cerri Cantieri Navali boasts sparkling interior deisgn from Giorgio Vafiadis.

Iconic, fast and masculine: many superlatives to describe the powerful 50-metre RUSH, delivered by Imperial with interior from Giorgio Vafiadis.

Built by Imperial, boasting exclusive designs from Giorgio Vafiadis, OKKO remains years after her delivery a timeless piece of art.
