Jim Pauling Yacht Design
“As principal designer I have devoted a lifetime to developing a thorough understanding of the principals of boat design,” says Jim Pauling, of Jim Pauling Yacht Design.
“This enables me to work with you, the customer, to maximise your boating experience. This grasp of the fundamentals means Jim Pauling Yacht Design can create any design from scratch to truly personalise and optimise your boating and lifestyle freedoms."
Jim goes on to say, “I am not bound by limited knowledge of a single style or construction material, so it opens up any and all possibilities for you, the customer.
“Whether you require a work boat, a pleasure boat or a sport fishing boat, when you come onboard at Jim Pauling Yacht Design you can access and utilise my design expertise and experience, which means we can develop a boat together; a boat specifically designed to meet your performance, handling and lifestyle requirements.
“In so doing we maximise your freedom and enjoyment of the boat and I enjoy nothing more than seeing customers enjoying life to the fullest through one of my designs.”
Best boats by design. I stake my reputation on it.
