'Saturday Club'

In the tradition of out-of-hours innovation, exploration and development, the Saturday Club is a free thinking area in which any idea or collection of ideas and technologies can be explored developed within our capabilities without the usual boundaries of a commercial brief.


The example shown is an ongoing project to develop a 19 metre multi-role private vessel equipped to be used in almost all conditions, with enhanced functionality and control, and exploring the technical possibilities of hydrogen based combustion hybrid power. A classical design language, minimal lasting environmental impact and low/no energy waste are key goals.
