Maritime restoration projects

Modern vessel design

During my time with the Ministry of Defence (Royal Corps of Naval Constructors) I was lucky enough to work under the late D K Brown whilst designing the RN’s Castle Class offshore patrol vessels (I believe this was the last ship type to be designed by hand for the RN and now happily in service with Bangladeshi Navy) and then on to lead the team designing the Batch II and III versions of the Type 22 Frigate (Probably the last frigate to be designed in house).

This experience has subsequently been put to good use leading teams working with Vosper Thorneycroft (now BAE Systems) on the whole ship design of the River Class OPV, and with VSEL (now also BAE Systems) on the structural design of HMS Albion and Bulwark, the Wave class RFA’s and the Astute class submarines.

Since then I have worked on a variety of fleet auxiliary and patrol vessel designs, both with the customer and the contractor; keeping my knowledge of the military world well up to date.
