“Our laboratory is the harshest environment in the world- the sea” Steve French
While we do have Naval Architecture and world class structural engineering to serve you with our reputation for unfailing boats is the result of a commitment to tougher than necessary standards. We design for wood, composite and metal constructions. We specialize in hybrids of the best materials to get the most performance for your goals.
We regularly design and build to triple and quadruple the professional insurance underwriter’s requirements. This philosophy is rooted in a deep respect for the ocean and the weather that can turn a beautiful day into your worst nightmare. We never design for bluebird days, we design for chin dropping sea swells and terrifying squalls. The lifetime of your boat is spent in saltwater trying to eat your hull from the day you put it overboard and if you’re using it chances are its taking hundreds of thousands of poundings per year. This is what we design for.
Combine our unrivaled experience with world class structural analysis and real material testing and you get a structural design package you can count on through the worst Mother Nature can dish out.
