Winston Pynn, Instructor

I am a graduate of the Marine Institute’s Naval Architecture program and after graduation in 1994 I worked in yacht design for more than 12 years, first as a junior naval architect, then progressing to engineering manager. In 2006 I completed a master degree in business from Warwick University (UK). I am still somewhat active in yacht design and am particularly interested in production processes and how they may be improved.
