About the firm

A naval architecture firm

Pierre Delion/ Architecture navale is a French naval architecture firm founded in 2001 and a member of the FIN (French Nautical Industries Federation).


The office were previously situated in Paris but moved to Nantes in the beginning of 2015. Since 2008, the company has been composed by a team of naval architects with mixed academic backgrounds focused on design or engineering which allows great project management from emergence to design and then production and shipping stages.

We often collaborate with other naval architects and design offices and we enjoy working in an international context. We work with several shipyards in France, Europe and China.


We have designed many professional and leisure vessels since our creation including monohulls, catamarans and ribs. We believe in technical diversity and pay attention to developing our skills in both regulations and design, which has been greatly appreciated by our partners.
