Born 1963, Francesco Paszkowski has immediately been led by his passion for design — he was at first particularly interested in car design —to take also an interest in yachts he started to design in 1986. Following the first experience in Athens and Singapore, he became a pupil of renowned architect Pierluigi Spadolini before deciding in 1990 to set up independently, opening his own design firm in Florence. In addition to the current collaboration with renowned Italian boatyard Baglietto he started in 1992 with the first 29m open yacht, Paszkowski has created a wide range of award winning designs and collaborated with internationally known shipyards. Research, experimentation, balance: the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio’s philosophy is all in these three words. For 35 years Francesco Paszkowski has been designing displacement and planing yachts in a range of dimensions up to 80 m for renowned shipyards and a growing number of select owners all over the world.
