With about a decade of experience in the yachting industry, I’ve developed an extensive set of skills and have become a passionate professional dedicated to delivering unparalleled excellence in every project. Specializing in bespoke, high-end yacht interiors, I have had the privilege of collaborating and working with world-class, well-known interior design firms in projects all over the world (Mexico, US, Italy, France, Spain, The Netherlands, Belgium, etc.) 

Throughout my career, I have also gained experience collaborating with High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) where the relationship with the client has been paramount, therefore quality and customer care have become key differentiators in my approach. I enjoy proving a strong sense of commitment and responsibility, in order to successfully deliver every project I take part in fostering long-lasting relationships with some of the most discerning clientele in the industry.



With a B.Sc. in Architecture, I moved from Mexico City to Milan to get my Master's degree in Interior Design in 2016. When doing so, I was luckily entrusted by the studio I was working for at the time (Ezequiel Farca), with overseeing the yacht design projects that were being built in Italy, serving as a liaison between the studio, the client, and the Italian manufacturing partners. It was then, whereby following five multilayered yacht projects, that I started gaining deep experience in the design, construction, and collaboration with various stakeholders within the yacht building industry.

After working for a Dutch design studio, in 2021 I decided to open AE Interior, a yacht interior consultancy, to be able to keep working and growing my international network and develop my skills further in this kind of sector.

"I have great memories when working with Ana and Ezequiel. We always held good productive meetings and interesting discussions which led to an amazing result of which everyone was really proud. The teamwork was so great that it led to keeping the bond through the years."

Every yacht design is chasing a dream which realization entails balancing between esthetical technical and financial requirements. 
Working with Ana-Elena on retrofitting DAWN was harmonious as she proposed designs and solutions considering all the aspects with respect to the owners’ aspirations. I am looking forward to our next collaboration.

Having worked with Ana on a 50m new built sailing yacht and 43m sailing yacht refit, I was impressed by her focus on detail and determination also in project situations when under pressure. In that process Ana is a very pleasant member of the client team and keen to listen to the challenges of the stakeholders and bringing the solutions to achieve the client’s expectations.
