Dave Warren

Renowned for designing yachts and luxury boats of uncommon elegance and high performance, Dave Warren has been building fast, beautiful boats since he was a teenager. His ethos is that there are no shortcuts, no unsolvable engineering problems and there’s no reason to build less than the perfect craft.

Dave Warren founded Warren Yachts to build fast boats in Australia, from racing sailboats to big catamarans, innovating hull shapes and engineering solutions, and created world-class ocean racing yachts and custom power yachts.

In 2003, Warren Yachts merged with Shipworks Brisbane Pty Ltd, continuing to design and build custom fiberglass superyachts, and semi-custom yachts in the Obsession line, which range from 75 to 115 feet.
