SR yacht progress
Four months ago we contracted Kooij Ship Operation, a family owned shipyard located in the South of Holland, for painting the yacht. After a lot of cutting and grinding, mounting and aligning the “bananas”, various reconstructing work and hours of sanding and painting last week it was finally time to roll her outside and let the first rays of sunlight strike the azur blue skin. Goosebumps guaranteed….
In March, the custom Esthec decking & re-designed upper structure will be fitted. From May to June the new interior will be completed and the yacht will be ready for unveiling this summer.
Our projects are not for sale until fully completed but we’re always open for offers we can’t refuse…

Roots and Origin
From the most beautiful sceneries of the world situated on the Côte d’Azur, there is a vibe that energized us to create the ultimate projects.
We design & create ‘social’ projects such as sports cars, yachts and villas. Projects that should be shared & celebrated in good company.
… Beyond Exotic…Continue Reading!
High performance is essential for a supercar and therefore by definition not a unique trait. Our endeavor is not only to come up with a new supercar design, but to create a new supercar genre: 4 seat 4 door convertible coupe. A sleek coupe which can be ‘Topless on demand’ by the push of a button.
Inspired by the indescribable yachting culture comes the Roadyacht GTS. In a world of superlatives everyone tries to stand out and be extraordinary, the limited special!
Our lightweight Savage Rivale cars use standard benchmark features such as a 600+ horsepower V8 engine, a modular hybrid monocoque chassis with integrated safety cell and ceramic brakes.
Our vision, however, is unique…
The Roadyacht GTS, the ‘social’ supercar …
Together with DrieDeeGraphics we have created an online configurator tool where clients can choose different level of trim, spin the car around, open the doors and view the spectacular R.T.M.P. roof system, day or night. Easter egg alert, find the champagne cooler! Check it out:Continue Reading!

From 2D to 3D
The next 6 months the duo spent their time carving the clay model going back and forth. The 2D sketches and 3D clay model are used to put the car into the virtual world to scale it up to real live dimensions. During this time all design problems are tackled on the fly. Door hinge constructions, sitting positions and engine lay out are some of the big hurdles that have to be taken. In retrospect this was the time with the steapest learning curve.Continue Reading!
Inception of the Roadyacht GTS concept
Emile Pop meets Justin de Boer during his industrial product design studies and together they create the first proof of concept of the 4 door convertible supercar.
They immediately share an entrepreneurial enthusiasm, which enables the duo to secure funding and partners to start their voyage.
In the first 6 months, a clay model is carved out to visualize the exterior. At that time, the company is just a two man show and realizing the dream still seems impossible.
Inspiration leads to an idea
In 2006, riding along the coastal roads on the Côte d’Azur, Emile Pop was struck by a spark of inspiration. He realizes that while many people can have fun on speedboats and yachts, only 2 can fit in supercars.
It was then and there, Emile decides the time is right for a new breed of ‘social’ supercars, bearing the following hallmarks:
Convertible Coupe lay-out
Yacht-like inspired interior
