Services & Capabilities

Sherwood Marine Design has the engineering skills and experience to bring complex projects to completion.

We are experienced in a range of vessel and hull types, including work boats, patrol boats, ferries, search and rescue craft, and motor yachts.

Within our team we have a strong focus on shipyard experience, and the delivery of practical and production friendly designs. We listen to our clients and work closely with them to develop optimised solutions, rather than simply telling them how it should be.

We provide a complete spectrum of vessel design services, across the main disciplines of naval architecture, engineering and fitout design. Services include new designs, refits and conversions, project management and supervision, hull construction kits, and general consultancy.
