Dubois Naval Architects was founded in 1977 by the yacht designer Ed Dubois. The English designer obtained his College diploma of Southampton College of Technology in 1974. After that, he worked shortly for Alan Buchanan, a naval Architect of Jersey and left to design his first yacht, Borsalino Trois. The yacht received numerous prizes such as the British Trials for the Three Quarter Ton Cup, the RORC Class IV overall prize and the Solent Points Championship. Ed Dubois' meteoric career was based in his early success and was encouraged to form Dubois Naval Architects.
Then, he designed Police Car, a superyacht that made him win the Admiral's Cup for Australia in 1979. That was just the beginning of many trophies Dubois Naval Architects won. In 2004, Ed received an Honorary Doctorate in Design by Southampton Solent University and is Fellow of the Royal Institute of Naval Architects and Royal Academy of Engineering.
Dubois philosophy is to combine supreme performance with unique space planning and exquisite lines. Their main goal is to create an amazing design and achieve perfection in naval architecture.
Dubois Naval Architects is a company that uses the latest technology and truly knows the principles of hydrodynamics and yacht performance.What is more, they consider very important having a fluid conversation not only with the client but with the builder and all those involved in the project.
The Dubois Naval Architects team is formed by Ed Dubois, Jerry Turner, Peter Bolke, Michael Benakis, Duncan Fawkes, Catherine Neal and Roxanne Hughes.
