Tim Heywood


Tim Heywood started a career in yacht design that has lasted over 40 years, during which he has been allowed by his clients to help create some incredibly exciting yachts. Currently working on a new design (over than 70 have been already sketched by him !), most of which have been or are being built. He defines his inspiration as coming from all around him, from nature, architecture, engineering, and transportation. From all times, contemporary, deco to ancient Egyptian

Tim Heywood’s credo is a simple as this: creating original floating homes that are rewarding investments. From his creative mind bored some of the most iconic vessels of the last 20 years, all remarkable award winning yachts like PELORUS, AL MERQAB, DILBAR, CAKEWALK or , CARINTHIA VII, to name a few.

Tim Heywood and Imperial has a long and successful collaboration, signing some of the most iconic vessels of the decade including the striking EVENT (Amels 199 Limited Edition) and the unrivaled charter motor yacht ASTRA (Amels 180 Limited Edition)

His name cannot be dissociated to EVENT: Imperial was here to build the very first hull of this Amels 199 Limited Edition, delivered in 2013.

Iconic, ASTRA is the ideal super yacht for owners keen to cruise around the world. Another powerful collaboration with Tim Heywood!
