Leaders in construction using all materials and Pioneers of Patented Titanium Construction
The innovation of titanium construction makes them unique however, Mike Oliver Yacht Design have decades of experience working with premier shipyards using all materials depending on requirement and budget so consultation is of course core to the process of buying a Mike Oliver Yacht and selecting the best materials, design and features for you.
The benefits of Titanium
Mike Oliver Yacht Design are bringing a game changing construction material to the market with the patented use of titanium in yacht construction sets them aside as innovators and adds another line item to the menu, giving you a broader choice to ensure you choose the very best material for you and your yacht. Titanium is a revolutionary development in shipbuilding and here are the benefits it offers:
- Titanium as a material is 50-60% lighter than steel with equal strength, so less fuel required.
- Titanium has a 3 times higher elasticity coefficient, giving the ship more stability in the water.
- Titanium is an excellent thermal insulator which again makes the ship more energy efficient
- Titanium is 100% recyclable
- Titanium is stable, there is no oxidation, so it can stay in water without needing any paint or antifouling. This results in the first raw metal design wordlwide
- Titanium is therefore ecogreen from all points of view.
- The finish can be shiny or matte as with modern supercars.
Another unique feature is customising the visual and tactile effects that titanium can have. Identity and individual style of your yacht is the future. Mike Oliver Yacht Design can leverage the properties of Titanium to reflect the individual identity you want for your yacht. This can be as subtle or extreme as you like the only limitation is your imagination. Take a look at the examples to the left, just to see how extreme this can be. This is called texting. Demonstration material can be provided on request.
Titanium can also be anodized and theoretically assume different colours based on the voltage to which it is subjected. Click on the image to the left for the colour palette. Demonstration material can be provided on request.

The founders have combined high school graduation and University degrees in nautical business, construction, architecture and engineering.
Both have solid yachting backgrounds and tenure working with premier names such as: Azimut, San Lorenzo, Overmarine, Rossinavi, Overmarine, and important design offices such as J&J Design.
This partnership prides itself on innovation and one industry leading development they are pioneering is the use of Titanium in shipbuilding. They spent collective time researching important names in metal industry, such as Tag, Titalia, Titanium and collaborating in R&D projects financed by Italian state, related to this material.
In Nov 2019 the Italian minister of development approved a patent for the idea of making a boat that has got as external and visible layer… titanium. This patent will be soon extended to the whole of the EU. So, these builders are true pioneers.
