Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, the acclaimed luxury yacht design studio, Ivan Erdevicki Naval Architecture & Yacht Design, Inc. has renamed the business. The company will be known as ‘ER Yacht Design’ as of July 1, 2014.
The image, style and ethos of the design company remains the same as does the legal entity, registration and the head office in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The contact numbers remain the same, emails will respond to both the old and the new address, whilst the new website has been also created.
Ivan Erdevicki, the Company founder has always considered the name a ‘mouthful’ and said “the new shorter name should be much more user friendly, easier to remember and more visible throughout the superyacht industry and the media. However, I am staying true to the uniqueness and individuality of my designs; that will never change!”
The new name retains the unique ER logo-style of the ERDEVICKI name and the main activity, Yacht Design, supported by the same motto “in pursuit of perfection” highlighting the quest for the best in yacht design. Interestingly enough the strapline is the stylised handwriting of Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest scientists and the inventor straddling the 19th and 20th Centuries and appropriately a lifelong perfectionist!
Likewise the commercial boat part of the business, providing a high-speed boat, luxury RHIB tender and luxury high-speed launch designs will be known as ER Workboats featuring the existing motto “safety is our priority”. The contact numbers remain the same whilst the new website, dedicated to high-speed commercial boats and tenders, has been created.
