H2 YACHT DESIGN – A HISTORY

Jonny Horsfield graduated from Coventry University after studying car design. He quickly discovered a passion for superyacht styling after he worked with designer Martin Francis.

He continued in the design field when he worked with renowned superyacht designer Donald Starkey.

For the first 11 years of business, H2 Yacht Design worked on refitting superyachts. The company is considered a refit expert in the superyachts industry.

They expanded into styling when the company won a contract for the interior design of the 54m Proteskan superyacht, TALISMAN C, in 2005.

The superyacht would be H2’s first new build. That groundbreaking project leads to H2 continuing to execute exterior styling and interior designs on new yachts.

The company has earned a reputation for excellent work, making them notable designers in the super yachting sector.

Their focus is on delivering bespoke services to clients. H2 pride’s itself in offering a unique service that fits each project.

Thanks to their involvement in a wide array of projects, the company’s portfolio, and skills are varied, allowing them to design any style that suits the client’s personal needs.

H2 doesn’t have a house style that is replicated for each client. Instead, they take on a wonderfully diverse set of projects because they can work with any style the client may prefer.

The company is known for having strong relationships with its clients, thanks to its readiness for client involvement in the design process.

H2 is considered one of the most innovative and technically strong design teams in the super yachting sector.

The team’s enthusiasm for yacht design allows the company to continue to evolve in its creativity, which has resulted in some of the most innovative yachts in the industry. 

H2 YACHT DESIGN – NOTABLE LAUNCHES

H2 contributed to the exterior styling and interior design for the 2014 Bloom + Voss GRACEFUL. The 82m yacht is one of the largest that H2 has designed, with another 120m project in Europe.

H2 can also claim credit for the interior and exterior work done for the Proteskan superyachts VICKY, a 72.6m vessel, and the 73.8m Nobiskrug ODESSA II interior design.
