Owen Clarke Design are proficient in the custom design and engineering of composite carbon fibre and metal (including titanium) parts for the smallest sailboat to the largest superyacht. This is a computer-generated image of part of the composite carbon foot block OC designed to deflect the runner and spinnaker lines on the IMOCA 60, Gamesa. Maximising the mainsheet track length meant there was insufficient space for a conventional foot block system to be integrated into the end of the mainsheet track. OC evolved the concept and engineered this solution from first principles.

The finite element modelling above shows the strain in the side wall of a demountable titanium fairlead for the jib sheet of a large superyacht. Part of a series of custom designed hardware components developed by Owen Clarke Design as part of our work during the refit of the 40m Wally, Angels Share. Deck hardware fittings for yacht and general marine use are typically CAD modelled in Solidworks and engineered in-house using finite element analysis and/or composite laminate programs, the most complex and/or critical solutions are then checked by independent engineers.
