    Hi all, first post on here!

    For those of you who haven't heard of Pascoe International, we build a range of top quality Superyacht tenders that serve on the world's largest private yachts.

    We're looking for an experienced small craft designer to join our team based in Southampton UK. The design work we do is normally based on pre-existing naval architecture or existing models, so the focus is on modifications, systems and components.

    The candidate should have a degree level education, 3 years + relevant working experience and excellent working knowledge of AutoCAD and Rhinoceros software. An interest in power boats / RIBs and boat handling experience would be a plus.

    The position will be full time permanent and pay will be according to experience.

    To apply please PM me for an e-mail address to send your CV to, or see our website

    Thank you, Richard

    Hi Richard
    I’m an Australian marine draftsman and provide contract design and drafting services for Engineers, Naval Architecture offices and shipyards around the world.
    I have been involved in the super yacht industry now for 11 years so I may be able to help.
    While I can’t relocate to the UK I do have an excellent history of successfully working remotely.
    I invite you to view my website at where you can get an in-depth view of the services I can offer and a glimpse of my portfolio and history.

    I have 11 years marine design experience working as a draftsman in both Naval Architecture offices & Super Yacht interior yards. I also have a Trade Certificate in Ship, Yacht & Boat Building and consider myself a well rounded industry professional.

    My drafting and 3D modelling skills are second to none and I know my way round most of the software used within the industry.

    I would love to have a chat should you think my services could benefit Pascoe International in any way.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact me on the below details.

    Ok, so I obviously didn't make this job sound too interesting in the post above, as only a couple of people who know what we are about have posted back.

    This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate for many reasons. Our market place is one that demands style, technical innovation and excellence above cost restraints, meaning that our designs are constantly changing and evolving without the constraints normally placed on development. In-house we produce everything from the concept design through to the delivered product, except the hull design, all at our single Southampton site. So the design role is free to change and develop everything from a whole new model range through to a tiny component and then very quickly see it produced, fitted, tested and delivered.

    I also feel that our produce range is something that many will enjoy being involved with. Here's some examples of future / delivered products:




    If you have the skills and relevant experience, please get in touch as this is genuine opportunity for the right person to move to a job that can really develop and be enjoyed.

    Doesn't look nor comfortable, nor very spacious. Look at the poor guy in white, he is scare to death.(just kidding)
    Tender need more space a less speed. If you had once in your life taken the patrons dead drunk to the mother ship, you know that if you go fast, you will have to change the carpet and the upholstery.
    They are big boat without inside space. Try the reverse inset of following this very counterproductive trend.

    Yacht designer available

    I chose a difficult medium for pleasure boats(aluminium), but it is possible to produce aesthetically pleasing shaped in any medium.
    I do not produce photo-realistic renderings, there are plenty of guys who can do that, but I bring in 20 years of experience, including hands-on construction.
    Here is a link to the boat I designed and built last year.
    Exterior intentionally unpainted, but the interior finished to a high standard with lots of electronics and other amenities.
