Ben Rogerson

Founder | Chief Designer

BEng (Hons)

Ben is a passionate Yacht Designer and Naval Architect, originally from Cowes on the Isle of Wight and now living and working in Hamble. He holds a First Class Honours Batchelor of Engineering degree in Yacht and Powercraft Design from Southampton Solent University, where he also gained the accolade from the Royal Institute of Naval Architects and IMarest of ‘Top Final Year Student’.

Yachts and advancing marine technology have been Ben’s obsession since he can remember, as he was sailing almost daily throughout his youth.  In his early 20s, following completion of an HND in Leisure Boat Design in 2003, Ben cut his teeth working for eight years on numerous composite race boat builds;  from TP52s to Open 60s, working for a number of well-known racing yacht shore teams, whilst continuing to sail competitively at national and international events.

In 2011 he returned to University to complete his engineering degree and has since worked on a number of high-profile projects from within the design teams. During the latter part of 2016, Ben took the leap to start BRYD with the mission to provide an exceptional and complete yacht design and engineering service to the international leisure marine and superyacht industries.


Growing up in Cowes, Ben has been extremely fortunate to gain a huge amount of sailing experience, racing with some exceptional sailors and teams. This experience includes winning National and European Championships in his youth as crew in small keel boats, being a member of winning teams in UK regattas in Class 0 yachts, TP52s, and the RORC Commodore’s Cup. He has also been given the opportunity to take part in Mini Maxi events, both inshore and offshore, in the Mediterranean.

Offshore and short-handed sailing has always been a huge passion with 4 Fastnet Races, a Middle Sea Race and over 15,000 nautical miles in deliveries, racing and challenges under his belt.  This includes a record of 15 days for a non-stop single-handed challenge around the UK and Ireland in a 6.5 metre Mini Transat.
