Mega Motor Yachts like Forty Love, the 45m Twilight and exotic superyacht sailing catamarans like the Blubay 72' and 100' are the some recent projects, along with design and engineering for underwater habitats like the Poseidon Undersea Resort and the H2Ome.

He came to Naval Architecture with a successful background in industrial design and the manufacture of furniture, corporate interiors and components for the automotive and aircraft industries. After 27 years as a design professional, and over 20 years as a Naval Architect, he offers, with the Brilliant Boats team, a powerful combination of design flair, creative solutions based on real-world manufacturing experience, and the best 3D design and engineering tools in the business.
