Graduated from Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid, had a master in yacht design and construction in Venice. “The school was on a little island and I had to go to study every single day by boat. What might be more inspiring?” recalls Alvaro. A 30-meter performance boat became the first yacht designed. Followed by numerous boats of the size 50 meters plus. In 2013 came out an 85-meter superyacht concept T.

“The one I’m really proud of is a 50-meter expedition vessel MaBulle turned into a private yacht. In 2012 it became finalist of the prestige “Young Designer of the Year” of the ShowBoats Design Awards”. In 2014 Alvaro presented his 74 m yacht V+A. Based in Mallorca, Aparicio de Leon brings his fresh and style to superyacht design, with his latest 114 m concept Project INES.
