Who We Are

SSC Marine is a collaboration between three independent design houses, each with expertise and experience in complementary areas of design. In coming together SSC Marine can offer a co-ordinated and integrated approach, resulting in a vessel that is truly optimised to your operational requirements.

Tennant Designs Ltd, brings 20 years of design and practical experience in catamaran design. The design office made a name for itself design performance multihulls, offshore long- range power catamarans and fuel efficient passenger ferries.Originally starting with performance sailing multihulls, Malcolm Tennant progressively developed the CS hull shape for high speed displacement power catamarans, since then the Tennant office had continued to develop this unique hull form and it is this technology underpins SSC Marine’s designs, backed up with real world data.

Stimson Yacht Design and Naval Architecture, led by Christian Stimson, FRINA, has 30 years’ experience designing and building fast yet efficient vessels, ranging from 50knot patrol craft for governmental agencies to America’s Cup yachts. Using the most modern design and analysis tools – including in-house CFD capability – theirs is a methodical approach to seeking the optimum design. Building on the Tennant database, their role is to produce the next generation of efficient catamaran hull forms for SSC Marine.

Kit Carlier Design, led by Kit Carlier MRINA, who has 20 years’ experience as both boatbuilder and designer. With responsibility for the exterior aesthetics and interior ergonomics, they bring experience from both the super yacht arena and commercial workboats.
