Last Thursday, the 3rd of July, I was invited at the 10 years birthday party of Franck Darnet Design in Nantes. I took a few pictures of the very nice office and Franck giving his speach as you can see in the slide show (allow a few secondS to open the flash slideshow).
Franck introduced his company, described on-going and future projectS. He has quite a lot of experience in designing very nice yachtS interiors, working with famous naval architects and shipyards. I let you check his website. Of course I was more interested in multihulls. Franck has designed the NAHEMA 120 and is now working on the Fenomen by Nahema, a 150 footer in composite. I saw the first 3Ds they are amazing. If you have a large catamaran project get in touch with him. He is very talented at getting a 120 footer look like a 150, so I let you guess what a larger one would look.
It was a very nice evening. I got to meet with the owner of WHIMSY a beautiful 78foot Brian design monohull built by Vaudrey Miller in New Zealand, with Jean Claude Carme the VP of SUNRISE YACHTS and co-founder of US Submarines, Herve Couedel another talented designer winner of the International Superyacht Design Award with ZURBAGAN and Franck's design team all very nice talented people.
