Yeah big shame that. Accident at home I'm told.

Most here know him as the designer of some pretty fine mutli yachts like the GBE and a few others.

It is a big lose.

Sorry to hear that.
I met him a few times in 2000 at the AC where we discussed details of a custom power cat I was having built for the main tender for a 79m Super yacht.

Even though there was no financial incentive for him to help, he went out of his way to do just that and gave me an insightful education along the way.

A wonderful gentleman who will be missed!:cubalibre
