Concept and preliminary design

We support operators and shipyards by developing customised vessel designs to meet specifications for speed, performance, range, seakeeping and efficiency.

We work with our customers to develop concept and preliminary designs that meet all functional requirements. Our ability to tackle whole-vessel engineering from concept to detailed production design allows us to add significant value in the early stages of design development and ensure that the final design is practical and feasible without compromising the original intent.

Thanks to our unrivalled knowledge of the design of steel, aluminium and composite structures and our state-of-the-art computational software, we’ve helped create some of the world's most advanced marine structures and can offer designs to meet even the most challenging requirements. Our team of mechanical engineers have the tools and experience to design the most appropriate and efficient machinery and systems to operate to exacting specifications.

Whenever concept designs are based on new or novel technology, advanced engineering or innovative naval architecture solutions, we can bring our extensive experience and solid results in the other marine markets to bear, allowing us to share ideas and technology in a collaborative way and foster innovation.

Whatever your requirements for technical support at the preliminary design stage, we have the expertise to develop practical, feasible engineering solutions for a concept without compromising your original design requirements.

Our outstanding reputation in hull-form design and development is founded on vessels that offer excellent sea-keeping ability, low resistance and high propulsive efficiency. Additionally, our background in configuring conventional and high-tech propulsion systems coupled with our experience in integrating active stabilisation and dynamic positioning systems means that we can provide the highest levels of capability for even the most demanding owners.

Thanks to our intimate knowledge of the design of steel, aluminium and composite structures and our state-of-the-art computational software, we’ve been responsible for some of the world's most advanced marine structures and can offer designs for even the most challenging projects.

Our front-end design services include:
