About Us

With many years experience in the yacht industry, we have worked on numerous motoryacht/sailing projects of all sizes. Working directly with owners, and in collaboration with the industry’s leading shipyards, Naval architect and fellow designers. We share a commitment and enthusiasm for every project and continually look at pushing our boundaries of creativity. Drawing upon new influences and experiences, resulting in a tailored package taking into consideration our clients lifestyle, tastes and dreams.

The directors bring a diverse wealth of experience to every project, with proven roots in design from graphic, industrial, product, design industries, all supported by a track record working for some of the biggest and most reputable names in the industry.

The studio’s portfolio covers a diverse range of both interior, exterior, contemporary, traditional and unique styles with details to cater for all tastes.


Design Director

Alastair grew up by the water and his love of the sea, sailing and design proved to be the basis of his career. Even before going to University he built a 21ft sailing yacht, including the design and build of a custom interior, prior to completing a BA Hons in Industrial design.


Alastair then spent a number of years working in the product design and manufacturing industry, before spending a year travelling the world and working in Australia for a design consultancy. On returning to the UK he joined Ken Freivokh Design, where he became a Senior Designer taking on many projects from 21M – 150M and project management roles, and meeting Rob.


Alastair then moved to Terence Disdale Design as a Senior Designer and Project Manager, working on a range of exciting and highly confidential projects, before returning to the South Coast as Co-Founder and Design Director of ThirtyC.


Creative Director

Rob has always had a huge interest in all aspects of design, completing an extensive range of projects and commissions for clients internationally, ranging from marine to residential and commercial design.


After studying art and design as well as honing his skills in 3D and illustration through-out his BA Hons degree, Rob then joined the team at Ken Freivokh Design (KFD). Here he worked with some of the most well know names in the super yacht industry. His skill, talent and keen eye quickly became apparent and lead to the creation and completion a number of unique and award winning designs both afloat and in build.


It was while at KFD he met fellow Designer Alastair. Now making a natural evolutionary step, ready for fresh challenges as Co-Founder and Creative Director of ThirtyC.
