    Is Abdesslam Laraki one of the very few successful stylist?

    Abdesslam Laraki appears to be a stylist/designer, not a naval architect, http://larakiyachtdesign.com/Laraki_Designv2/biography/ though his firm now offers "technical analysis, engineering" in addition to styling, design, ... industrial class-A 3D modeling and follow-up". http://larakiyachtdesign.com/Laraki_Designv2/gallery/services/

    Keep in mind that naval architects are essentially engineers, though some naval architects also do aesthetic design. This is fundamentally different from architects who design buildings and who usually are not engineers.
