Spotting celebrities on a superyacht is no surprise, but some want to do more than just charter and have worked together with industry professionals on superyacht interiors or exteriors. From Brad Pitt to Lenny Kravitz, we look at the celebrities who have unexpectedly tried their hand at naval design and _round-up the top celebrity yacht designers..._

Roberto Cavalli

Fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is renowned for producing bold clothes that feature exotic animal prints. As both a designer and a lover of superyachts, it was only a matter of time before this celebrated creative would turn his hand to naval design. Together with Studio Spadolini, Cavalli worked on both the exterior and interior design of his batmobile-inspired yacht Freedom. Delivered by Cerri Cantieri Navali in 2018, the interior is finished with Cavalli's signature leopard-spot prints.

A chance meeting between film star Brad Pitt and designer Frank Pollaro at the former’s French chateau in 2008 led to the formation of Pitt-Pollaro – a furniture collaboration based on Pitt’s extensive sketches. Combining modern design with luxurious and rare materials, the pieces grace more than a few stylish superyachts and always make Pitt-Pollaro one of the top luxury brands at the Monaco Yacht Show.

It was concerns about the declining local boat building community in his native Long Island that led music legend Billy Joel to design a beautiful day boat in collaboration with Doug Zurn and CH Marine. The 11.58 metreShelter Island Runabout is inspired by traditional teak tenders and offers a huge range of customisable options from cockpit layout to wood finishes and engine size. Launched in 1996 and with each built to order, the design has proved extremely popular with upwards of 40 hulls sold. After the success of their first model, the pair collaborated again to produce the 17 metre Vendetta.
