Engineered for the Sea









is a rugged vessel with exceptional seakeeping capabilities. Since our naval architects and marine engineers are working sailors who kicked steel onboard, every design is engineered like a ship we’d actually take to sea.


Boksa Marine Design (BMD) is a naval architecture and marine design firm located in Lithia, Florida just outside of Tampa. Specializing in full-scale design and naval architecture from a blank sheet of paper, our vessels are engineered and built to meet class standards and regulatory and flag state requirements.

Form follows function and Boksa boats are designed, engineered and built to exceed the operational requirements of their unique mission. BMD also provides production engineering, systems engineering and complete refit engineering for the commercial marine industry, including workboat, inland river and shallow draft market.

With such a salty foundation in design and engineering for ships, it’s no wonder the world’s premier superyacht builders and recreational boat manufacturers choose Boksa Marine Design to create their fleet and new launches with the toughness of a small ship, a noteworthy attribute as superyachts grow increasingly larger and for yacht owners, brokers and project managers seeking a naval architecture firm that has experience with commercial grade systems and requirements for yachts exceeding 60 meters.

Burger Boat Company, Christensen, Newcastle, Pursuit, Custom Steel Boats, Buddy Davis Yachts, Derecktors Shipyard, Palmer Johnson, Nordhavn, Egg Harbor, Calyber, Trinity Yachts, Lazzara Yachts and high-profile shipyards around the world have contracted with BMD for new build designs, exterior styling and a variety of engineering services.

Contact BMD at or 813-654-9800 to discuss your custom marine design. Whether you’re cruising on blue water or brown water, you’ll want a vessel that’s engineered for the sea by men who worked at sea.

Explore your world.

Custom yacht design, naval architecture, exterior styling and marine engineering for clients and builders. BMD will conceive, design and build your dream yacht.


Naval Architecture


As your vessel’s mission is established and the conceptual design phase begins, BMD will create your vessel’s DNA from a proven hull design with visual representation articulating your vision.

The conceptual design process results in a concept package, with requirement outlines and regulatory compliance review. During this design phase, bid packages are sent to builders.

Design development begins with the detailed design phase, expanding upon the conceptual design and finalizing all details with a complete design package including technical drawings, schematics and necessary design documentation.


Marine Engineering

Boksa Marine Design provides engineering for boats, ships, yachts, barges, ferries, towboats, oil rigs and any other marine vessel or structure, as well as oceanographic engineering or ocean engineering. We apply engineering sciences, including mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and electronic engineering, to the development, design, operation and maintenance of watercraft propulsion and on-board systems and oceanographic technology. This includes machinery, piping, automation and control systems for marine vehicles of any kind.

Our goal is to provide efficient solutions for every stage of the project lifecycle, from establishing the vessel mission to design development and engineering to overseeing the final build. We can manage the entire marine design process for you or we can assist with specific design services.
