John Moxham Internationally Renowned Naval Architect and UBC

Internationally renowned boat designer revolutionises hydrodynamic hull performance with The Ultimate Boat Company

The Ultimate Boat Company (UBC) has launched a brand-new range of high-speed, best-in-class powerboats designed by internationally renowned naval architect, John Moxham.  

Moxham, who is 86 (in 2021), has had an illustrious career in the marine industry, from designing military high-speed craft through to creating the UK’s fastest RNLI lifeboat (E-Class Mark I).

He was also at the forefront of using GRP for boats, designing the first mass-produced outboard-powered cabin cruiser, the ‘Microplus’ and is well-known for his work on high-performance designs for brands such as Avon, Ribeye, Scorpion, and now The Ultimate Boat Company.

This latest venture is, he says, “the pinnacle of my career”. 

Traditional Approach Yet Cutting Edge Design

For UBC’s pioneering portfolio of powerboats, John has completely redesigned the hull to fundamentally redefine the way a planing hull interacts with the water, positioning the company at the forefront of hull design and powerboat building.

The revolutionary and patented hull technology introduces a unique compression or hydraulic lift, resulting in vastly superior manoeuvrability, performance and stability.

Hydraulic lift is generated by modifying and then manipulating waterflow beneath the craft.

John’s designs, which always start life on a traditional drawing board before being converted to CAD, apply fluid dynamic principles developed for advanced supersonic aircraft to reimagine hull technology and hydrodynamic performance.
