This year sees the welcome return of the Superyacht UK Young Designer competition, sponsored by Marine Resources, at the Southampton International Boat Show (15-24 September).

Design students from universities across the country are being invited to sign up for the competition during which they will be asked to produce a General Arrangement (GA) sketch from a brief created by the judging panel at the start of the competition.

Drawing on inspiration from across the show, the entrants will be given one and half days to complete the brief and then showcase their designs to industry experts and be in with a chance of winning an internship with a leading superyacht company.

The competition will get underway at midday on Tuesday 19 September and run until 18.00 on Wednesday 20 September, when each of the entrants will have 20 minutes to present their designs to the judging panel, comprising:

  • Stephen Hills – Pendennis
  • Justin Olesinski – Olesinski
  • Stephanie Olliff – Marine Resources
  • Douglas Hynd – RWD
  • Jeff Houlgrave – Marina Projects
  • James Shakespeare – Princess Yachts
