The team of collaborators is formed by excellent technicians : naval engineers, marine architects, yacht designers, sea captains ,expert in the many fields of the yachting world .Even in the Classic Yacht Restoration field we use very updated technology of designing like laser scanning, 3D design,use of renderings …But a masterfull stroke of pen or a few brush strokes to the watercolour can make a difference and ennoble a design and can bring our profession nearer to the time of the yachting masterpieces of the past, when often a yacht designer was a great draughtsman , a skilled seaman , a racing yachtsman.
Also the Brokerage division of Zacboats is fruit of our deep knowledge of the yachting of the past , the study of the yachting history and the peculiarity and technology of classic yacht construction.
