About MYPD

Since its founding in 1981 as a one-man design firm specializing in high-speed boats, Michael Peters Yacht Design has set the standards for style, performance and quality. The company’s philosophy is based on Michael Peters’ fundamental belief that all design should exemplify the fusion of art and science.

The intense competition of international racing demands measurable, quantifiable performance that allows no loss of focus or deviation from the goal . While it was raceboats that first brought Michael Peters onto the international stage, these same exacting standards apply to the performance and aesthetic criteria that drive the design of every boat that bears the name of Michael Peters Yacht Design.

With degrees in naval architecture, marine engineering and yacht design, the MPYD team melds advanced technology and engineering with the purest art form of clean, efficient design. The industry has recognized the firm’s work repeatedly with numerous awards and trophies, and MPYD designs have garnered world records and more than 200 UIM Class I wins on the way to winning 13 Offshore Racing World Championships.

Some firms excel at style, others performance. Michael Peters Yacht Design enjoys the unique ability to standout in both.
