German Frers Design 74 receives the name of Foggy as a play on the acronym of renowned Architect Frank Owen Gehry.
The famed architect and his developer friend Richard Cohen decided to embark upon yacht building together with German Frers as naval architect. “Don’t let me go too crazy,” Gehry reportedly told Frers. “The boat has to work.”
The vessel was manufactured by Brooklin Boat Yard in Maine, which specialises in “cold moulding” timber – sandwiching wood around a high-tech core to create a lighter, stronger and more durable craft than traditional planking. Foggy was launched in 2015.
