With some 200 new yacht construction and refit projects to her credit, Dee Robinson is certainly a defining force in the world of luxury yachts. Her portfolio ranges from 70-foot semi-production models to 180-foot completely custom steel yachts.

Dee Robinson has long been at the cutting edge of her profession. At Hatteras of Lauderdale, for example, Robinson broke new ground in the 1980s developing customized, high-end, turnkey interiors for production yachts. Her more recent projects include high-speed yachtfishermen, composite and aluminum tri-deck semi-displacement motoryachts and full-displacment, ocean-going megayachts meeting the highest standards of MCA certification. Demanding, multiple-boat completion schedules and the expectations of a vast variety of clients from the U.S., Asia and the Middle East have honed this firm’s sophisticated methodology for project management. Every single project has been delivered on or before its scheduled delivery date.

In 2000, Dee Robinson Interiors won a ShowBoats Award for work 150-foot BELLINI, selected as the “Best Semi-Displacement Motor Yacht Over 38 Meters.” She followed this up with the 2003 ShowBoats Award for “Best Semi-Displacement Motor Yacht Under 38 Meters” for 124-foot ANJILIS. Robinson’s first fully certified MCA yacht, 180-foot Mia Elise, has been named a finalist for the 2006 awards.

Dee Robinson Interiors also creates designs for custom residences. In addition to several waterfront homes, she has designed a grand luxury apartment in Boca Raton and a Palm Beach townhouse. Her most recent success is a Ft. Lauderdale apartment where she designed a unique luxury environment where the clients live among their fabulous collections of art, wine and Formula 1 racing gear. The residences she has designed for her clients -- many of whom also hired her to design their yacht interiors -- have been an exciting departure and allow design on a completely different scale.
