Stefano Pastrovich: A Yacht Designer Like No Other

Stefano

Stefano Pastrovich is the subject of hundreds of articles in online publications devoted to superb yacht design. His studio is regarded as a leader in yacht design, with a well-deserved reputation for highly desirable and innovative sea-faring vessels. Though luxury yachts created in his company often take the forefront in discussions, it is the youthful founder whose creative energy infuses each project. A brief glimpse into his youth reveals a Peter Pan-like spirit and a strong measure of curiosity gathered into the pursuit of building things that flew and sailed.

Pastrovich was born in 1973. His birthplace, Genoa, is one spot on Earth where sky and sea meet, and the wind allows for sailing and flying activities enjoyed by many young boys. Stefano, at ten years old, started to design, build and fly toy gliders. With the success that fuels passion, he enjoyed how they flew, and by the time he reached eighteen, he transferred his passion to full size gliders; entering them in numerous competitions.

He describes himself as knowing the wind well due to his early play and competitive gliding experiences. His earliest designs for the sea were sailing vessels. Appreciation of the wind plus a keen eye for details and function were key talents used in his subsequent designs.

From 1996 until 2000, he worked in collaboration with the Martin Francis Design Studio, developing large sized motor-yachts. Later in 2000, he began working for Wally in the chief designer position. Until 2004, he created designs that he felt were engineered for optimal performance, which also happened to have functional details inspired by his appreciate for nature.

Ultimately, he opened his own studio in 2005, though he continues to work on projects for other companies. Since 2014, his own Pastrovich Studio has focused on a philosophy of feeling good so that each team member can live well. The members include sport to maintain mental and physical welfare. For this reason, the studio looked carefully at traditional classes of vessels and renamed them using the language of four different sports. Each vessel created is part of a representative sport, and are categorized based on the strengths and qualities distinctive to each field of sports. The four are Backpacker, Dressage, Freeride and Parkour
