July 12, 2012 - Bray Yacht Design makes huge advances on lowering carbon footprint


BRAY YACHT DESIGN AND RESEARCH LTD., Naval Architects, Project Managers, Interior Designers, and Marine Consultants, provide services to private individuals, companies, organizations, and governments engaged in marine transportation, ocean engineering, pleasure craft, and projects relating to the marine environment.

Expertise is available for preparation of conceptual, preliminary, and complete designs from lines, model testing, construction drawings, presentation profiles, sections, rigging and shafting drawings, specification books, costing out, shop flow charts, and project management, including the conversion of existing equipment. For research and development, technical studies and reports concerning structures, propulsion, stability, weight, and feasibility and operational aspects of all types of marine equipment. Facilities include dedicated equipment for open water testing of model hulls for research and development.

Research is a part of our name and large part of our work. It is a commitment to an ongoing quest for excellence in design. Our custom and stock plans reflect this commitment, with attention to detail, comfort, safety, and of course performance.

The Company's design and consultative responsibility has included all types of pleasure, commercial, and special-purpose vessels using foam cored and composite fiberglass, wood epoxy, steel, and aluminium materials. Vessels embodying our direct design, conversion, and construction participation are in use in North and South America, The People's Republic of China, the Middle East, Europe and Australia.

Research and model testing is a big part of our work. We design and build plating models, models for testing, and models for display. In-house projects are ongoing and our own development of super fuel-efficient pleasure craft includes model testing in Dalian and Shanghai, P.R. of China, as well as here in Canada. Work is also being carried out on appendages for improving rolling and pitching motions of long-range motoryachts while at the same time improving fuel economy. In addition we are working on evaluation and analysis of ballast/displacement ratios, as well as the development of new building systems. Participation in testing programs has included work on Boeing Marine System's Jet Foil into Dover Harbor Project, military research on 100 knot planing hulls, and S.W.A.T.H.s, as well as evaluation of the "Orca" class patrol vessel hull.
