Working in collaboration with Dutch design studio Vripack means all Doggersbanks benefit from the accumulative experience of a world renowned team of naval architects. Their exceptional level of expertise informs the required weight and stability calculations and performance predictions, but also puts a strong focus on seakeeping calculations. 

The use of state-of-the-art CFD software generates high-end seakeeping animations to perfect hull forms in terms of efficiency and onboard comfort. By mitigating pitch and roll, even in the roughest seas, Doggersbanks deliver a smooth and solid ride for the most intrepid explorers.

A secondary element to the Doggersbank naval architecture is the technical arrangement. It considers the functional layout of accommodation areas, as well as technical space and onboard storage. Allowing to properly access all equipment in the engine room enables easy routine maintenance, something that has proven to be highly valuable to many owners and crew. 

The same level of comfort can be spotted in the set-up of mooring equipment, such as anchors and windlasses, all properly arranged with an eye for safety and practicality. Aboard a Doggersbank, safety and comfort take priority, complemented by reduced noise level when under power.

"One of the biggest things that Vripack helped us with was weight/balance. I really feel that with an expedition boat, the only defense you have is to slow down, stay upright, and keep running. Gayle Force does that really well now."



Vripack’s design philosophy is informed by a creative, holistic and collaborative approach. By conceiving yachts that offer the most enriching experience possible on water, it allows owners to immerse themselves in the yachting experience with the peace of mind that comes from unparalleled levels of safety, comfort and durability. The studio’s approach to design is governed by the playful interaction between beauty and function, intuition and intelligence, and balance and performance.
Vripack’s yachts appeal to the heart, mind and senses in equal measure. They offer light-filled, elegant and comfortable spaces that ensure owners, guests and crew feel at home, at sea.
