Beneteau is always bringing new ideas to the market with their innovative designs and they are really going to shake up the market with Juan Kouyoumdjian of Juan Yacht Design new designs. We will have some real exciting times ahead of us.
Established in 1997 by Juan Kouyoumdjian, Juan Yacht Design (JYD) is involved in every aspect of the design of racing and cruising yachts, from conception and analysis through to final construction drawings.
Based in Valencia, Spain, JYD is composed of a multicultural team specialized in the design of high performance racing yachts. Its members are at the forefront of yacht design and engineering, from the most sophisticated simulations using 3D, CFD and FEA tools to the production of detailed construction drawings and interaction with building teams.
JYD has built up a reputation for creating innovative designs which push the boundaries of technology and imagination. We strive to enhance our designs to give the optimum performance
The design philosophy represents what has been JYD’s strong belief since its origins: to allow the designer’s creativity and innovation to define the starting points [at any level] as well as the recognized paths of evolution; then apply most advanced design and engineering technology to those principles.
Knowledge and experience are the essence of this process because no tool or model can accurately simulate every aspect of reality. The designer’s decision making process is therefore based on what the tools cannot model, rather than the contrary. It involves an understanding of which parts of reality can and cannot be simulated.
