Ken Freivokh

Working from his studio based on the River Hamble on the south coast of the UK, superyacht designer Ken Freivokh actually started life as an architect. Raised in Los Angeles, he studied engineering and architecture in Peru before moving to the UK to study at the Royal College of Art, graduating in 1972 with a Masters in Design. It was while working as an architect that Freivokh first encountered yacht design, and as an experienced sailor it was when buying his own yacht – and asking for some changes to be made – that he started to make the transition.

Since then, Freivokh and his team have created several stunning yacht exteriors and interiors, and the studio has become well known for its cutting edge and often futuristic concept designs.

Notable yachts

Perhaps most famously, Ken Freivokh design the exterior and interior of US venture capitalist Tom Perkins’ superyacht Maltese Falcon, at 88 metres notable for its innovative Dynarig and still one of the largest private sailing yachts in the world. That is set to change with the Freivokh-designed superyacht Dream Symphony, a striking 141 metre contemporary wooden schooner that is currently under construction at the Dream Ship Victory yard in Turkey.

Specialisations

Aside from superyacht interiors and exteriors, Freivokh has also collaborated with production yacht builders such as Sunseeker and Discovery Yachts to develop interior design styles and has also developed tender designs with Pasoe. The studio has also done residential interior design projects, including the apartment of Tom Perkins. The studio has also collected several awards, most notably for Maltese Falcon.
