Bannenberg & Rowell
Dickie Bannenberg is the founder along with Simon Rowell, of the design studio Bannenberg Rowell. The studio, headquartered in London, creates bespoke design for private clients, luxury yachts, residential projects, aircraft interiors and custom furniture.
Bannenberg is the son of the late Jon Bannenberg, the man who is credited with being the founder of modern yacht design in the 1960s. Dickie worked alongside his father for 18 years, during which time he was project manager for wide-ranging yachts such as Talitha, Thunder and Siran. Dickie authored and produced an exquisite commemorative book on his father, entitled, Jon Bannenberg, A Life of Design.
The Bannenberg Rowell design portfolio is one, no doubt, his father would be proud of. The studio has won numerous awards for its designs, recently winning a top award for exterior design of the 230-foot (70 meter) Feadship Joy. Dickie has a notoriously funny and dry sense of humor.
Having designed some of the world’s finest megayachts, yacht design firm Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architect Ltd. has built a reputation as one of the top naval architecture firms in the world. For more than 35 years, founder Greg Marshall and his business partner, naval architect Gordon Galbraith, have designed ever-larger megayachts, and a commercial craft for a wide variety of clientele. As with any life-long dream, it started early with Greg.
Greg’s father, Victoria architect Donovan Marshall, recognized his son’s obsession and introduced him to Bill Garden, the famed yacht designer. Garden asked the 15-year-old Greg to sketch a yacht for a customer. Greg made batches of drawings and when the opportunity presented itself, Garden offered him a few weeks of drafting work after High School. In 6 years under the tutelage of Bill Garden, Greg amassed the skills and practical approach to yacht design that has served him to this day.
