About Us

Passion, design nous and experience come together at Big Blue Yachting, where Danish owners and designers Claus and Jeanette Thottrup combine their love and knowledge of sailing with extensive experience in award-winning design and construction to build bespoke vessels.

The Thottrups are sailors, trendsetters and travellers, whose passion and curiosity inspire them to continually push boundaries to create and share elevated experiences of luxury and wellbeing. The founders and creative minds behind the Borgo Santo Pietro Group of luxury lifestyle companies, their approach has led to resounding success in the sphere of design and construction, including Tuscan boutique hotel estate Borgo Santo Pietro , two Michelin-starred restaurants, high-end property design and construction company PN Homes, and boat-building, with the launch of bespoke yacht Satori in April 2017 breaking new ground in sailing circles.

Based in Bodrum (Turkey), a city renowned for its tradition of beautifully executed, hand-built wooden boats, Big Blue Yachting is founded upon the Borgo Santo Pietro Group philosophy of creating client experiences that go beyond the bounds of the known to unite luxury and nature in a way that has never been done before.
