redarrow.gif (838 bytes)EXISTING DESIGNS. Like for most of our designs and Stock Plans (SP), gallery can be modified to suit individual requirements.  Design costs arising from minor revisions of the plans or specifications for an existing design will be performed on a “time and material” basis.  If changes required by the client affect lines or basic structures, the work will not be classified as an “existing design” but will be considered a “new design” and our fee will be adjusted accordingly. Our fee for an “existing design” does not include inspection. If you cannot find specifically what you are looking for, please contact us with your design brief. Maybe we have already designed it but not logged into the catalogue.






redarrow.gif (838 bytes)FULL CONSULTATION privileges are included with these designs.  You may Telephone (401) 847 4112, 
and e-mail  our Design Office  ymt@tantonyachts.com  any time for assistance.

redarrow.gif (838 bytes)DESIGNS.  For the Owner considering new construction, we are in the position to design any type of vessel properly engineered to meet own individual requirements - ALL RIGS - ALL SIZES - ALL MATERIALS.  As an example, the design fee for a 50 to 60' build in the US typically represents 5% of the construction cost or half the normal Brokerage commission to sell a boat of the same value.

redarrow.gif (838 bytes)EQUIPMENT. Boat Buyers/ Owners equipment service.  Until now, we have limited our service to those individuals whom we design and build boats for.  Now, we expand our services to offer every boat owner the ability to order through us at discounts that can run as high as 40-60%.  Having access to large discounts associated with this industry, we now offer gear and equipment, from engines to lifelines systems, from portholes to rigging, at cost plus.  













redarrow.gif (838 bytes)PRICES for Study gallery and Plans are subject to change without notice. All prices in US dollars.

redarrow.gif (838 bytes)PAYMENT. By check, bank draft, postal money order, wire transfer etc.

redarrow.gif (838 bytes)Paypal

redarrow.gif (838 bytes)ALLOW 3 to 4 weeks for deliveries of Stock Plans.

Here are just a few of the comments received about Tanton from professionals in the trade:

blarrowdwn.gif (875 bytes)




"Yves-Marie de Tanton is one of the great designers but not exceedingly well known outside the trade. He pioneered the unstayed carbon fiber Cat-Ketch rig. He specializes in the sort of intensely personal custom designs that keep his customers coming back."    S. C. B.

"One of the most productive and innovative designers I have ever found. I have spend already many hours browsing his design, always discover new things that surprise me and regularly return there for fun and meditation ;-) He seems completely open, and his designs are of such an overwhelming diversity that I always wonder how he can give each and every single one so much of his personal touch. There is always and in each design something "tantonesque" that will make you question your own preconceived ideas, it tickles and bothers you, and when you finally discover the reason behind it, you have become a little bit richer.. like us frenchies say: enchanting."  G. D.





"Tanton has designed some of the world’s fastest and most exotic racing yachts. This gives Tanton a most unusual perspective on design features for esoteric cruising boats."  R. H.  P.

"I had the pleasure of working with Yves-Marie when I was on the East coast. I must say that my own drawing style and design approach was markedly influenced by the six months that we worked together. Yves-Marie probably draws the fairest set of lines that I have ever seen. His lines gallery are truly works of art."  B. P.

"Yves-Marie is a very talented designer with lots of fresh ideas, a guy worth keeping tabs on."   D. S






"Tanton has never been accused of surrendering to convention."  Q. W.

"Tanton has already designed five boats for me and currently designing two more. This speaks for itself."  B.  G.

"Tanton had met the criterion creativity and had offered a highly professional design that would provide a two-person crew a uniquely capable world cruiser."  B. W.

"Un Français, Yves-Marie TANTON, s'est installé à la Mecque des U.S.A. : Newport. Il compte parmi les meilleurs."   G. R-D
