About us

The Hartmann family`s comprehensive collection of historical ship`s figureheads makes up the basic foundation of the unusual idea of reviving the old tradition of ship carvings and ship sculptures. What had initially begun as a means of financing the studies, soon developed into a small international enterprise with agencies in the United States and other Countries. The figureheads for traditional sailing vessels and yachts represent the main direction of the artistic handicraft work. By way of innovative design ideas and the utilisation of modern materials, such as stainless steel and aluminium, Hartmann Design is increasingly also catering for the Mega-Yacht market through the production of bow - and interior sculptures, as well as carvings made of selected finest woods.
