We revel in the challenge of meeting the brief

“A sailing yacht is a bundle of compromises, and the cleverest constructor is he who, out of a mass of hostile parts, succeeds in creating the most harmonious whole. It is not strange that designers pass sleepless nights, and that anything like finality and perfection of type is impossible to conceive. No wonder that yacht designing is a pursuit of absorbing interest.”

Lord Dunraven
Challenger for the 1893 and 1895 America’s Cups
