I am very happy to announce that VPLP is opening a new office in La Ciotat (France). After Paris and Vannes, the design team wishes to get closer to the superyacht market. Following is a press release by Katrina Kelshall, VPLP PR manager.

"VPLP open new office in La Ciotat, serving the French Riviera.

Multihull designers Van Peteghem Lauriot Prévost (VPLP) celebrated their 25th anniversary last year and decided it was high time to have a presence in the South of France closer to the heart of the European superyacht base on the French Riviera.

It has been ten years since their 138’ luxury catamaran won the ‘Most Innovative SuperYacht Design’ in the ShowBoats International Awards. Since then VPLP have gone from strength to strength in the design of mega multihulls larger then 24m.

This has been crowned by the opening of a new office in La Ciotat which will serve as a showroom for brokers and clients drawn to the jetset lifestyle of the Riviera. La Ciotat is the industrial centre of the luxury yacht industry that decorates the Mediterranean coast including the yachting Mecca’s of Monaco, Cannes and St Tropez. The office enjoys a strategic location in an industrial park specially dedicated to marine industries.

The new, open-space design studio faces the Mugel with impressive views of the Bec de l’Aigle."
