rdoin Yacht Design has been founded by Cédric Ardoin, a naval architect graduated from Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology (Connecticut - USA), and member of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA - UK). Head office is located in the heart of Sophia Antipolis in France, 15 minutes from Antibes (French Riviera).
Driven by his passion for the yachting world, he acquired his knowledge and experience thanks to his freelance activity, such as a promoter, and in several engineering and design cabinet research consultancies. He also worked in the business world, as a partner and co-founder of cabinet research consultancy and then in the family business by setting up a network computing solution and obtained the French standard NF 311.
Thanks to his regular visits to the major professional boat shows, he developed a valuable network of professionals in Europe and in the United States. He surrounded himself with a network of specialists with similar skills and all entirely committed (or devoted) to the yachting industry, and is affiliated to the Riviera Yachting Network. Among those professionals are famous names of design, design offices, shipyards, but also corporate management and financial partners.
Ardoin Yacht Design provides the entire completion of plans such as pocket-yacht, super yachts and mega yachts in the original design or refit. The professional approach, the originality, the respect for the owner’s wishes and the confidentiality, are our main priorities.
