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 ERDEVCKI 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.

In addition, the commercial boat part of the business, providing a high-speed boat, RHIB tender and high-speed launch designs, will be known as ER Workboats featuring the existing motto “safety is our priority”.

ER Yacht Design is engaged in the design and naval architecture of individual superyachts ranging from 30m to over 130m, including the interior design and styling.

The company is based in Vancouver, BC, Canada and London in the UK, with representation in Porto Montenegro, Montenegro in the Mediterranean and in Cancun, Mexico.
