Having graduated with a degree from the Art Centre College of Design in Pasadena (USA), de Groot went on to spend six years as a car designer in Paris for Citroën. Then in 1986, inspired by viewing the 45m (148ft) De Vries (Feadship) Highlander, de Groot began designing yachts in parallel with his career in car design. He launched Guido de Groot Design in 1997, specialising in innovative interiors and exteriors for both luxury motor and sailing yachts.
