The introduction of 3D CAD technology

In the mid-80s the company proved once again that it was at the forefront of design when it became the first British naval architect firm to use 3D computer-aided design (CAD). Justin marks this as the start of the company’s devotion to improving hull efficiency.

“With the use of 3D CAD we were able to make the lines much smoother which in turn helped make our hulls efficient,” Justin says. “Since then year on year our hulls have become increasingly efficient.”

This development in hull efficiency not only benefits the environment but also allows for greater advancements in design without loosing speed or fuel efficiency.

The use of 3D CAD also helped to revolutionise the design of interior accommodation.

“Previously a lot of the work was done on the boat as it was built,” Justin explains. “By going 3D it meant that everything could be resolved at the design end which saved a lot of time.”
