Simonis Voogd Design is an international Naval Architectural and Yacht Design studio with 26 years of experience and over 200 successfully completed projects ranging from the modest Hobie 13 (1983) to the most extravagant mega maxi’s such as “Nicorette II and III” (90ft, 2000 and 2004) and “Les Folies” (85ft, 1999).
Alexander Simonis (1959) and Maarten Voogd (1966) have both individually been award winning designers and are in partnership since 1991.
Simonis Voogd Design has offices in Enkhuizen in the Netherlands and in Cape Town in South Africa. Since 1999 the Dutch office has become the head office.
Since the early 90's we have been at the foreground of using Computer Aided Design. Well before other design offices got involved in CAD did we supply yards with "Full Size Templates" on Mylar film to get over the tedious job of lofting a design out of a table of offsets.
Although computer power was very limited in the mid 80's early 90's we developed various design formats to enable us to do complete design in CAD. Today many of the owners of such early designs reap the benefits of this approach where all design information and all drawings of each design right up to 1983 are instantly available in electronic format ready to be e-mailed from our offices in Enkhuizen and Cape Town. As an every increasing service we assist yards around the world with technical maintenance information and advise on each and every design produce by SVD.
