New vessel design

Synthesis of a new vessel design is where the craft and science of naval architecture are on show. It requires a specialised set of skills to balance aesthetic sensibilities with the practical requirements of vessel operations, survey requirements and ensuring the vessel complies with the laws of physics. At Damien Smith Design we are passionate about applying the best of our skills to the design of new vessels.

Having worked on numerous new vessels, from conception through to delivery into operation, we have the capability to work with owners, builders, and regulatory authorities on all aspects of a new build. We can work up a design through the preliminary design stage from back of envelope sketch to practical design, supply precut material kits, approved drawings through to completion of stability.
