Malcolm McKeon to leave Dubois Naval Architects

2 November 2012By Malcolm MacLean

It's the end of an era as Malcolm McKeon tells me he's leaving Dubois Naval Architects to set up his own practice in Lymington.

After many years working with Dubois Naval Architects, having joined the company as a graduate in 1981, Malcolm says he's looking forward to the new venture and is currently looking for a suitable studio.

Malcolm met Ed Dubois sailing in Hong Kong and then, after taking a yacht design course in Southampton, he joined the company as a graduate in 1981. He steadily moved into a senior position within the company and has been a constant figure there over many years.
