Modern Classic Yacht Design

My specialty is custom yacht design, from concept to launch. 

Strength, safety, comfort, performance, style, grace... the essential attributes of a yacht.  Whether built in wood, steel, aluminum or composite, those qualities shape our "Modern Classic" design strategy.

My mission is to combine an owner's wishes with graceful aesthetics, human-friendly design, competent analysis, maximum performance, robust structure, and classic form.

I offer a high degree of creativity in pursuit of solutions to myriad client requests. This is the essence of good design.

See the Site Map for a complete index to our yacht designs and our articles about boats and boating.

Advanced 3D Modeling and Analysis

Using computer aided modeling a yacht design can be created with optimum aesthetics, structure, performance, stability and seakeeping. Using the same model, the structural parts of the vessel can be defined for CNC cutting. 

CNC cutting delivers a more accurate and higher quality structure at a more favorable cost than would be possible using manual lofting and cutting methods. 

See the Design Stream article for a detailed outline of our design development process.

44' Schooner REDPATH Under Sail - Kasten Marine Design, Inc.

Here my pretty,
I launch you proudly
Until some vagrant zephyr
Strays this way
To fill your sails
And waft you hence.
        - Krazy Kat, 1918  

24' Tug Yacht - BOOJUM on Puget Sound, Washington.

How inappropriate
to call this planet "Earth,"
when it is quite clearly...
        - Arthur C. Clarke, 2001
