The Ron Holland Design studio is based in Kinsale, Ireland, and has clients from Europe, North America and the Pacific region. Ron Holland became well-known in the 1970's thanks to his extremely successful racing yachts that competed and won in level rating, A dmiral's Cupand World Championshipevents .
In 1973, Ron Holland's Eygthene won the Q uarter Tonner Cup in St.Petersburg.Later in the eighties, the success of the studio's Admiral's Cup yachts called the interest of the "big boys" and Holland was commissioned to design maxi racers including Kialoa and Condor. The basis of Ron Holland's design philosophy is the result of these yachts which are large, performance cruising yachts.
Back in 1999, the studio undertook its first interior design project on the 33m ketch Avalon and its first motor yacht project, the 46m Affinity in collaboration with the Delta Yachts design team. By 2003, Ron Holland launched the 247ft/75m luxury sailing superyacht which was the first composite over 500 GRT to be MCA approved. Designing this superyacht gave Ron Holland's team exceptional opportunities and challenges. In 2007, the innovative 45m Marco Polo motor yacht was launched in Hong Kong, winning the Showboats International Awardfor "Best New Series over 40 Meters".
Ron Holland's design is motivated by innovation and fresh thinking. The aim of his team is to build gorgeous yachts, while taking in consideration their functional efficiency. Every yacht they create is designed to perform to its fullest potential, but never at the expense of sea-kindliness, comfort and security.
