Welcome to Overing Yacht Designs, a full-service, naval architectural firm niched in the design of tough, luxurious, custom megayachts up to 330-feet (100 meters). Decades of building stout, yet plush megayachts with commercial grade systems are complemented by our experience in the design and engineering of large commercial and military vessels. If you are seeking a uniquely designed yacht constructed with the integrity of a small ship, not a big boat, Overing Yacht Designs (OYD) is the perfect partner for your new build.
OYD designed the first megayacht built in Mississippi, Bon Bon, now Shogun, launched in 1993. Originally, Bon Bon was a 34-meter aluminum trideck that we lengthened to 37-meters during a refit at Palmer Johnson in 1998. OYD also designed the largest megayacht ever built in New Zealand, 50-meter Indiscretion, later lengthened an modified by Sensation then renamed Noble House, followed by co-developing Trinity Yachts' 55-meter Mia Elise hull. As Trinity's first full displacement, round bilge motoryacht, this renowned builder turned to OYD for our experience in designing 50+ meter round bilge, displacement hulls.
Our luxurious, well-appointed, custom megayachts are renowned for being workboat tough. Our megayachts are built like small ships, and the structural integrity of our vessels exceeds those of the average yacht as discussed in detail in our Design Philosophy Section. OYD's proven, seaworthy vessels have a reputation for going out during weather when other yachts have to stay in port - and there's a reason why.
Headquartered on the Gulf of Mexico in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, OYD collaborates with shipyards worldwide, seeking the best options for each client. We've teamed with established builders to produce OYD "Series Designs" for clients seeking a semi-custom megayacht at the most competitive price. See our new construction page for specific models of Mariner, Dauntless and Flagship Series Tridecks.
For a client seeking a custom build with a selection of qualified builders from which to choose, OYD generates a clear, definative bid package and manages the bid process. Once a shipyard is selected, we provide an engineering package with optional levels of detail as outlined in our Engineering Section.
Overing Yacht Designs provides its client with choices. We can also oversee the construction, providing checks and balances throughout every phase of the build. Our base designs can be tailored to suit a client's unique requirements; or we can start from a blank slate to create a one-of-a-kind, custom megayacht.

Our Flagship 122 design, the 37 Meter Trideck Motoryacht "Shogun", formerly "Bon Bon," launched in 1993 as Mississippi's first megayacht. She was lengthened 3 meters in 1998 at Palmer Johnson and recently repowered with Cats. Shogun has logged hundreds of thousands of sea miles since her launching, a testiment to her "workboat tough" heritage.
