Hanson lecture: Evolution of yacht design process over 45 years, Rob Humphreys

Rob describes a personal journey from his first boat built - a 24ft stripped-out Quarter Ton racing yacht - to the studio’s most recent work, including a 160ft expedition yacht currently under construction. It spans the transition between pencils, splines and ducks through early computerisation to various high level CAD/CAM processes. It’s an art-meets-science journey, where the former still plays a huge part.
