His initial designs attracted attention with their unique styling, high performance and reliability. Ivan has developed an expertise in the design of work boats and acquired valuable experience and empirical data through extensive tank testing and prototype testing and evaluation of production vessels.
Ivan started studies of the naval architecture at the University of Zagreb, Croatia, then studied mechanical engineering at the UCLA, USA and the yacht design at The Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology, Maine, USA. His exceptional talent, study of naval architecture, mechanical engineering and yacht design with hands-on experience of yacht construction and an extensive boating experience on variety of vessels enabled him to develop into a designer with uncommon touch of blending the art of design and engineering into what is today a distinct Erdevicki style.
