If you’re interested in analysing design for performance craft – from small racing boats to superyachts - Southampton Solent’s yacht and powercraft design degree will help build your theoretical and practical knowledge to take the first step in your career as a yacht designer.
Solent’s internationally-recognised yacht and powercraft design course focuses on small craft technology, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and design practice, delivering essential engineering theory and design skills.
Previous students have benefitted from attending guest lectures by speakers from key industry organisations such as the Royal Institute of Naval Architects (RINA), Nigel Gee BMT, Babcock Engineering, Gurit, Sunseeker, Rob Humphries Design and Norbert Sedlacek (Open 60 skipper).
To help build their professional network, students are encouraged to attend local boat shows, including the Southampton Boat Show and Seawork International. Previous students have also been on yard visits, with recent trips including Sunseeker, Green Marine and Solent Refit.

You might notice that some of the widgets below contain the same data. To help explain, each one represents a different version of this course. We might offer a three-year version and a four-year version, for instance. Right now, we?re working behind the scenes to make it clear which course version is represented by each widget. Where there isn't enough data from each version then the stats are averaged out across all the course versions. For more information please visit the Unistats website.
