Vectis consolidates advanced composite design capability

Vectis has recently completed the structural design of two new high performance and weight critical advanced composite craft thereby consolidating our in-house structural design capability in both composites and metals. These craft follow the structural design of a novel 22m high speed craft and a next-generation 8m RIB both in advanced composite materials with infused and cored structural elements. This advanced composite design capability is available to other naval architects, boat designers and boat builders.

Dr. Robin Loscombe joins VECTIS

VECTIS Marine Design is pleased to announce that Dr. Robin Loscombe has joined the VECTIS team.  Robin is well known throughout the industry as he has taught numerous naval architects and yacht designers over many years at Southampton Solent University where he was Senior Lecturer.  Robin has extensive knowledge and experience in the design and naval architecture of small craft, but he is most widely recognised for his small craft structural design and analysis work.  His PhD was in the design of a SWATH in advanced composite materials and for the last 10 years or so he has been an instrumental member of the ISO Working Group that developed ISO 12215 for small craft structural design.  Robin greatly strengthens the VECTIS team in these areas and enables us to provide a one-stop shop for small craft design and structural engineering as well as the design and analysis  of metal and composite structures including the in-house use of the Strand 7 FEA (finite element analysis) tool.
