Meet our team

We believe Morrelli Melvin are the best qualified and most professional Multihull design/engineering companies in the world which is why we have them on our team. They don't just sit in the design office, they sail, build boats and have developed technology behind Americas cup campaigns and other world famous projects. This gives them the perfect balance of technical knowledge and hands on experience.

We have approximately 50 local vietmanese staff with a mix of colourful characters. Most of who are extremely loyal having been working with Paul, James and Damien for 10 years building lightweight high quality composites. Willing to put in the hours when needed to make tight deadlines, their pride is clearly visible when projects are completed and they see photos/videos of the end users enjoying the fruits of their labour.
