Bill Tripp III spent his childhood on the water sailing and racing in boats his father designed. Bill’s father, William H. Tripp, Jr., designed such well-known yachts as the Bermuda 40, the Block Island 40 and the Columbia 50. Bill studied Naval Architecture at the University of Michigan (M.E. & B.E. in Naval Architecture) and joined up with Doug Peterson right out of school, working on designs that would be victorious in regattas such as the SORC, the Admirals Cup, the Sardinia Cup, and the Southern Cross series. After spending several years as chief designer with Peterson, and as a construction engineer for Maxi Yachts KIOALA, and CONDOR, as well as a brief stint at Baltic Yachts, Bill struck out on his own, founding Tripp Design Naval Architecture in 1984. Tripp Design has offices in Connecticut and Amsterdam.

With a team of Naval Architects, Engineers and Designers, Tripp Design specializes in the design and engineering of modern yachts. Recent launches include our largest project to date - the 85m luxury sailing ketch Aquijo with her 5000m2 of sail area and at the other end of the spectrum - the 62’ ChessieRacing the latest in a long line of similarly named boats intended for cruising and long distance racing, and finally, Tripp Design’s most powerful design to date - the sleek and very fast 45m cruiser-racer Skade.
