Naval Architect and Maritime Consultant

Quality Without Compromise

Naval architect and maritime consultant Ian Darley specialises in bespoke work boat designs, providing a comprehensive professional ‘all inclusive’ service from concept, through building of the vessel to launch and ‘in service’ back-up thereafter. A typical commercial vessel design contract would comprise; feasibility study, tendering, contract negotiations, detailed design drawings, supervision of construction and stability book, or any parts thereof.

With many years of experience as a naval architect designing commercial work boats an extensive portfolio of maritime craft has been developed covering all aspects of the marine industry from multi-purpose work vessels, tugs, passenger craft to patrol boats and fishing vessels.

As testimony to the standards of service provided the first vessel designed by Ian Darley, the ‘Vera Lockhart’, owned by David Ferran and Sons in Belfast, is still operating after more than 35 years of service.

In addition to commercial boat design other services offered include; supervision of repairs, re-powering and refits, arbitration, stability investigations, inclining experiments and stability books, structural and machinery surveys.
