    Hello everyone,

    I am an interior architecture graduate who wants to start a career in yacht industry. Currently I am about to finish my education in industrial design MA.

    I gathered my portfolio, prepared my CV. But I don't know where to begin with as soon as I graduate. I couldn't find anything on yachts when I search online for interior architecture related jobs.

    What kind of way I should look for? I am simply unexperienced to know where to go on that level.

    Also I can send my portfolio and CV to help you determine what I might need to do.

    Thank you everyone, cheers.

    Yacht interior design is not a very big industry.

    Just google "interior design yacht" and contact the companies that come up.

    There are usually two types of companies that do interior design for yachts. The do it all yacht design firms and the interior design specialists. The interior design specialty companies often also do building and airplane interiors.

    Bigger boat builders will also have their own in house design teams and may have interior designers.
