Maritime Professional Winner celebrates growth

Industry Database

Winner of the Maritime Professional of the Year in 2018, James Walker will return to Seawork with his company for the third consecutive year.

Walker Marine Design (WMD) which primarily specialises in commercial marine vessels has enjoyed impressive growth since James received the Award.

The company has just received an order from Manor Renewable Energy for its second WMD-designed 26 metre wind farm service vessel (WFSV) which is being built by Manor Renewable Energy’s sister company, Manor Marine. The first 26m WFSV, Manor Venture, was launched in 2017.

Naval Architect James Walker says, “I can truly credit Seawork for many of WMD’s successes and resultant growth. The exhibition’s audience is a great match to our offerings, plus the unique mix of networking, meetings and on-water demonstrations provide a varied mix which perfectly showcases our business.”

Walker Marine Design, which is located near Southampton in Hamble, UK, works with many of Europe’s foremost boat and shipbuilders, delivering a diverse array of designs including houseboats, pilot vessels, fire and rescue craft, and multirole workboats.
