ABout us

Created  in  2011  by  Romain  Lanos,  Ph.D  in  physics  and  naval  architect,  Streamline  is  offering  services  of  yacht design  and  engineering  and  assists  yacht  designers,  engineers,  racing  teams  and  sailors  along  the  design  and  optimization  process  of  their  yacht. 

From  its  creation,  Streamline  has  been  collaborating  with  prestigious  actors  of  the  yacht  racing  world  enforcing  innovative  solutions  and  assisting  them  in  their  constant  quest  for  performance. 

Beyond  the  yacht  racing  field,  Streamline  offers  its  competences  and  tools  to  every  project  looking  for  performance  in  an  innovative  way. As  Research  and  Development  represent  a  major  part  of  its  DNA,  Streamline  has  built strong  relationship  with  majors  academic  partners  and  its  expertise  has  been  officially recognized  by  the  French  government  through  the  labels Jeune  Entreprise  Innovante and  Crédit  Impot  Recherche. Since 2018, STREAMLINE is one of the start-up included in the Incubator of the Alliance Centrale-Audencia-ENSAN
