Andy Claughton Naval Architects.
The study of vehicles that operate at the interface of air and water. Traditionally, naval architecture has been more craft than science. The suitability of a vessel’s shape was judged by looking at a half-model of a vessel or a prototype.
Ungainly shapes or abrupt transitions were seen as being flawed.
But things have moved on, operating in a marine environment is complex, and now ship and yacht designs are cooperative efforts involving subject matter experts.
To ensure a balanced solution to the design brief these specialists are most successfully coordinated by a naval architect.
