I'm Rory Coase; a freelance designer based in Bergen on Norway's beautiful west coast.
Growing up in the UK I had a keen interest in marine design. I could often be found sketching new ideas, or reading about the history of yachts and ocean liners. Over the years I've been lucky enough to develop this passion into the career I enjoy today.
In 2010 I graduated with a BEng in Naval Architecture from the University of Southampton. Since then I've worked in-house as a Naval Architect and Yacht Designer for a number of yards across Europe, including Sunseeker in the UK and Viknes in Norway.
Additionally, I've had the pleasure of completing a variety of freelance design projects, from residential interiors to commercial refits.
Earlier this year I decided to pursue my ambition to become a full-time freelance designer. As such, I'm available to discuss new projects and opportunities, either for individual clients, or on a contract basis for shipyards and design offices.
If you have any ideas or projects you'd like to discuss I'd love to hear from you.
