Tim Saunders is a British national who grew-up near to the south-coast of the United Kingdom. Positively influenced by the nearby yachting and shipping scene, he chose his ideal career path at the age of ten when he decided to become a yacht designer. He followed in his father’s footsteps in Television Production for a few years which soon lead him – full circle – to become involved in a number of ‘then’ cutting-edge documentaries about Technology and Watersports, namely Tomorrow’s World, Horizon and a series named Waterfront. These experiences served to boost his interest to ‘create yachts’ for living and he soon found a place at the coveted Coventry University where he studied Industrial Design (Transportation). While this was one of only four colleges in the world that specialised in Automotive design, from the start he elected to apply this rich learning experience to create a career in yacht design.
Following his graduation, Tim was fortunate to have been offered appointments at many of the world’s highly revered yacht Design Studios, working on an array of live Superyacht projects of all different sizes, styles and uses. During what he affectionately calls his apprenticeship years, Tim honed a sharp eye for fine detail, problem solving and soon built-up a wide range of design and management skills during a circa. 10 year period. He gained a wealth of experience from many facets of the industry, custom design. production design, exterior styling, interior design, systems, naval architecture, materials and manufacturing – while working with many of the world’s most respected Naval Architects, Shipyards and Interior Cabinet (Furniture) Makers. In 1999 Tim established his first independent Design Studio, based in Holland, and rapidly became involved in the design of a number of new yachts ranging in size from 10m / 40 ft to 100m / 400 ft. Tim measured his success by finally fulfilling a long term wish to exhibit his work at the Monaco Yacht Show, which lead to key introductions that still generate a regular supply of commissions today. Following the appointment of a particularly large project, a 225m / 738’ vessel, he relocated his business to Chelsea Harbour in South-West London and set-up a larger Team. Some years later, in 2009, Tim chose to move his home to one of the natural crossroads of the world, Turkey, where he continues to reside with his young family on the Aegean coastline in the south east of this ancient country. Tim Saunders Yacht Design LTD continues to be very busy, currently working on multiple iconic custom superyachts for local and international Clients.
