All the information about the wide variety of services we have to offer.
At Ben Rogerson Yacht Design, we take a holistic approach to the entire yacht design process, by bringing together the concept design, naval architecture and engineering, performance development, as well as production detailing. We can provide an efficient and structured process, ensuring continuity in a fully integrated design package.
At the core of our design process is a rigorous attention to detail, with a high degree of pride taken throughout each element in the design. Some of our main services and processes are outlined below.
For further information on how we can help with your projects, it would be great to hear from you – so please get in touch.
Exterior & Interior Yacht Design
At the heart of our design process is our ability to communicate and effectively transfer our client’s vision into reality. We elevate from simple sketches and mood boards, advancing through design techniques to ensure our styling direction is built on the strongest of foundations. Some of these design techniques we use are with Adobe Suite, Keyshot Rendering and even more simply just pen and paper.
Design morals embedded into our design philosophy:
Optimised performance through mathematical modelling and analysis
In partnership with Steuart Lynes, we have devoted significant resources into the development of our in-house performance analysis toolset and VPP ‘Formflow’. By using artificial neural networks and mathematical modelling techniques, we have enabled a cost-effective analysis and optimisation with up to 6 degrees of freedom and the ability to optimise across a large number of variables, including hull form variations, board immersion, trim tab and rudder angle, which are some of our simulations undertaken in RANSE CFD.
- In-house developed VPP and performance analysis software ‘FormFlow’
- Numeca Fine Marine RANS CFD, Cloud Computation
- Resistance and seakeeping
- Optimisation utilising neural networks and mathematical optimisation techniques
3D Modelling & Production Design
Utilising 3D & 2D Design Software Platforms
At BRYD we have invested significantly into our trade tools, using high-end Parametric Modelling PLM software, Siemens NX. Used by F1 teams, Aerospace and the America’s Cup, NX, with its advanced surfacing capabilities allows us to approach each and every design in a highly adaptable and efficient manner, delivering extremely accurate designs from concept to mechanical and structural layouts.
NX also provides us with a powerful drafting platform enabling us to directly translate model revisions highly efficiently. In line with the current industry best practice, BRYD also uses AutoCAD for a proportion of our manual and composite drafting work.
3D Scanning & Reverse Engineering
Point cloud scan surveys and 3D
Reverse engineering of geometry and tooling from 3D point cloud survey, enables a highly accurate method of attaining the 3D geometry, from which new surfaces can be developed for CNC production. In surface modelling, we use our Siemens NX Mach 3 industrial design licences, which provide us with a complete range of in-depth surfacing analysis toolsets to develop fair, continuous, and symmetrical geometry with a high degree of accuracy.
Over the last few years, we have undertaken a number of reverse engineering projects for the leisure marine, commercial and superyacht industries including:
- Product reverse engineering
- Refit projects
- Large scale structural modifications
- Performance analysis simulations
- Equipment installation feasibility studies
