The Design Process: We are often asked how the process works when a client approaches us for a design, or has ideas they want to bounce around before committing to a project. Our projects are quite diverse and we find that the most successful way of approaching a new design is to split the project into ‘Preliminary and Working Drawing’ stages.

The Preliminary Stage allows the designer & client to get a clear understanding of what is required and to put this into initial drawings. It is the foundation of all future work and everything that follows will be based on these drawings. Costs for the preliminary work depend on the project on hand and we would supply a quote on a project-by-project bases.

As soon as you see the word IRC and connect it with anything between 38’ and 43’, you will be excused from thinking heavy production type lead mines. It is this type form that seems to do well under this rule and not until you get into the 48’ plus lengths that lighter displacement hull forms can start performing to the rating.

The cost comparison of a TP 52 and a 42-footer both in build and campaign costs is far more than triple so we have a group of yachties out there that want their yacht to light up and fly but are either forced to go heavy and slow to have any chance under IRC, or go to a different rule / handicap system all together.
