Research, experimentation, balance: the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio’s philosophy is all in these three words. For almost thirty years Francesco Paszkowski has been designing displacement and planing yachts in a range of dimensions for famous shipyards and a select international clientele. In collaboration with his team of designers and  architects Paszkowski and his studio have penned yachts that can be seen today navigating all over the world.     

Born in Milan, Francesco Paszkowski learned the fine points of yacht design from Pierluigi Spadolini. After years of commuting between Athens and Singapore for a boat building venture, Paszkowski moved back Florence in 1990 and opened his eponymous studio. From the first 29m open yacht drawn for Baglietto in 1992 to the recently launched 72m superyacht designed for Tankoa, Paszkowski has created a wide range of successful designs and collaborated with internationally known shipyards such as Canados, Cantiere delle Marche, CCN, CRN, Custom Line, Heesen Yachts, ISA Yachts, Rizzardi, Sanlorenzo and Turquoise Yachts. On top of these commissions, Francesco Paszkowski and his studio are often contacted directly by owners looking to create the yacht of their dreams.

Over the years yachts have changed and so have the technologies used to design them. No one can rest on their laurels, every day there is something new to learn and something beautiful to create.

Francesco Paszkowski has built a team of designers and architects to keep up with the changes while maintaining his unique look and design standards. With specialised departments for both interior and exterior design, the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio has the talent and the technology you need. From custom one-offs, to series builds, to refits: Francesco Paszkowski and the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio can define the look for any yachting project.  

Located in the hills overlooking Florence, the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio creates award winning projects for shipyards and private owners. Paszkowski and his team tailor the yacht to suit the brief, be it from a shipyard or a private client, from the hull lines, to the custom furnishings, to the lighting.

In 2006 the architect Margherita Casprini joined the FPD studio’s design team. With her experience in interior design and her innate love for innovative yet luxurious materials, Casprini flanks Paszkowski by creating the interiors that best express their clients’ taste. Tastes evolve, times change. The team at the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio keeps an eye on new aesthetic and functional trends while never loosing sight of the main objective: to translate the needs and desires of private clients and shipyards and turn them in to beautiful yachts. Francesco Paszkowski Design: with passion, to create emotion.
