Martin is one of the doyens of modern yacht building with his heart in traditional design. Each of his innumerable designs, many of which are now classics or classics in the making, is pared down to the essence, the rest being superfluous ballast. If art can be defined as the power of omission, he is an artist.
But if an artist is defined as a footloose dreamer, he is precisely the opposite. A realist to his fingertips, who has spent his whole (pretty long) life sailing and is able to tell the difference between sense and nonsense. In our team he forms the balance that translates creativity into functionality and then shapes it in his own unique way.
