    I´m new here and probably or rather certainly my first design won´t be good. I don´t have any knowledge about yacht design however I had looked many yachts and I decided make my first yacht. I´d like to hear your opinion about my first attempt. As I said this is my first designed yacht so I dont know which software to use..and as well my english isn´t the best. Thanks for all replies.

    Looks very nice but you could work a bit more on the contrast of the ships hull.

    Not bad for a first whack. Would be nice to see some more contrast / detail to the hull / profile.

    There are alot of free and good software, try GIMP or OpenOFFICE (Draw)
    Sure if you want to spend some money then there are alot of commercial ones too. But mho these do the same job for normal use.

    I think this is right both in resolution and in contrast..but in original size it´s much better..

    Looks much better, try to make the windows darker?

    MODS:
    In some places it says that the max picture size is 540px and in some places 640px. Maybe in the uploading window there could be a reminder of the right max. size.

    You have a wave piercing bow with a helicopter pad on it.... Helicopters are not really designed to be frequently sprayed with salt water. It adds huge costs to the operation and maint. You also, especially with wave piercing designs keep as much weight out of the bow as possible. I also see large exterior surfaces that will be quite difficult to clean without elevated exposure to injury.

    There are many subtle practical issues to yacht design. When you design something you have to always consider "how will this be maintained? Is it safe to do that?"

    You also have a lot of draft there and have combined a wave piercing bow design forward with a planing hull form aft. A wave piercing design goes with a sleek displacement form, yet you have a large square transom deep underwater creating huge amounts of drag.
