CHRISTIAN BRAUN

Christian Braun is a german entrepreneur. Founder and owner of the “Nassau Group” a premium hospitality powerhouse of brands and properties.
Growing up in Ibiza, Christian quickly realized his passion for boating. Already as a teenager he did his first charters as day skipper on the boat of his parents, that was the starting point of his desire to study and know more about boats. At the age of 18 and 19 he worked professionally as Skipper, loving every second he spent sailing, from there onwards after years of having his own motorboats and sailing catamarans (2011 he ordered a Lagoon 380 and 2018 he ordered a Sunreef 50) he gained many miles and experience, by cruising Skandinavia, the Med and Caribbean.
His bold ideas, passion and experience as a yacht enthusiast and luxury property specialist made him want to launch a new type of catamarans, which will satisfy even the most demanding clients and has not been offered in the market so far.
Together with Ivan Salas, founder of Iddes Yachts a well-known naval architect, Christian teamed up and founded COSMOPOLITAN Yachts.

IVÁN SALAS JEFFERSON

Ivan, born in Palma de Mallorca, not only does he have a master’s degree in Naval Architecture, but he has also worked for leading Dutch naval architects De Voogt (Feadship), the builder of bespoke superyachts Oceanco, international refit shipyard facilities, owners-representative for the development of the design, engineering and building of the MY Royal Falcon One by Porsche and, more recently, the design development of Earth 300, currently the largest and most technically advanced explorer and scientific research vessel. In short, he has been at the heart of a constantly changing yacht industry for two decades, and his company, Iddes Yachts, brings all this knowledge together into unique designs.

Ivan Salas Jefferson was the winner of the German Design Awards 2020, winner of the International Red Dot Awards 2020/2021.

The adventure starts when Christian Braun and Ivan Salas partner up and start the COSMOPOLITAN 66 eco project in 2019. The vision was to create a completely new, environmentally friendly, luxury yacht. The new tech concept and practical design is a culmination of the extensive owner experience of Christian and the design skills and technical knowledge Ivan had gained, over more than twenty years in the superyacht industry.
