Francesco Paszkowski Founder

Following his first experience at Spadolini Design studio and the years of commuting between Athens and Singapore designing yachts from 30 up to 42 m, Francesco Paszkowski took the next step and opened his own design firm in Florence.

Over more the past 30 years Francesco Paszkowski Design has created an extensive fleet of vessels and new designs, both planing and displacement, in fiberglass and aluminium. From the first 29m open yacht drawn for Baglietto in 1992 to the 72-m for Tankoa, a growing number of select owners and renowned shipyards throughout the world single out the Paszkowski design firm as the place to have their yachts conceived. In addition to his long collaboration with Baglietto started in 1992, Paszkowski has created a wide range of successful designs for Sanlorenzo, Tankoa Yachts, Heesen Yachts, CRN, Custom Line, Cantiere delle Marche, Rizzardi, ISA Yachts, Canados e Turquoise Yachts.

Over the years the complexity of the design process has grown, yachts have changed in size and type and so has the team approach to design them. Recently Paszkowski has also established a partnership with the University with the aim of launching a host of educational programmes for tomorrow’s generation of designers.

Tastes evolve, times change. While Francesco Paszkowski Design team acts with boundless energy and enthusiasm to inspire the young designers starting to work at the studio, they keep an eye on new aesthetic and functional trends without never losing sight of the main objective: to translate the needs of shipyards and the desires of owners and turn them in to new beautiful and unique yachts. No one design is ever the same. With passion, to create emotion.

The Studio

For longer than thirty years Francesco Paszkowski Design has been designing a myriad of award winning projects, custom and series yachts, currently navigating all over the world, in a range of dimensions for famous shipyards and a select international clientele.

In 1996, not long after the design firm was first opened, interior design was added to its remit. When client requests for décor began increasing an independent interior design department consisting of interior designers and architects was permanently established within the design firm.

The design team currently develops custom one-offs, to series builds, to refits, penned by Francesco Paszkowski, and offers on board architectural solutions, custom-designed furniture and lighting systems. Drawing after drawing, day after day, yachts that are destined for owners and shipyards the world over take shape every day at the eponymous design firm thanks to the team’s strong and collaborative approach. Tailored to the client’s own bespoke specifications, each and every new design is a one-of-a-kind creation.

Since 2006 the studio has been relying on the support of Margherita Casprini , an independent professional architect. With her past experience at Spadolini studio, she collaborates for interior design with Francesco Paszkowski and his team.
