Joining the Summit team in 2011, Mark Anders brought his exceptional design skills to the forefront. Growing up along the picturesque Dorset coast in southern England, Mark developed a deep affinity for water and boats from an early age. His passion for all things marine was further honed during his tenure with a prominent European yacht builder, where he immersed himself in the realms of engineering, architecture, and bespoke furniture design, gaining valuable experience in the superyacht industry. Driven by an independent spirit and a desire to forge his own path, Mark established his own studio in Weymouth in 2004, quickly earning a reputation for his innovative and versatile approach. His diverse portfolio encompasses projects ranging from tenders and sports boats to yacht clubs, hotels, and superyachts.
Mark’s design philosophy revolves around the concept of simplicity, both in form and materials. His furniture designs epitomize the distinctive blend of informal elegance that characterizes the Summit brand. One notable creation is the Harbor series, an exclusive collaboration with Summit. Combining the timeless allure of teak with the sleek polish of stainless steel, these designs embody thoughtfulness, originality, and a meticulous attention to detail—hallmarks of the impeccable quality and craftsmanship for which Summit is renowned worldwide.
