About us

Marine Design International Ltd

Established in 2005 Marine Design International has slowly built a reputation for providing practical solutions in a cost effective manner. MDI Napier (successors to Napier Company (Arbroath)) and McCaig Watson Ltd were incorporated into MDI in 2005 and we have continued the values of these long standing organisations.

Based in the historic shipbuilding power house of Glasgow, we pride ourselves on the ability to tailor our services to best match clients needs and provide innovative design which reflects and builds on our proud heritage. Often we are in Ireland or the South coast and now and again venture to the Southern Hemisphere or North America. Our consultant Maurice Napier works from Arbroath on the Scottish East coast and also travels extensively to the ports of the world.

Our team of Naval Architects at MDI are committed to offering clients reliable solutions to their design and operational needs.

Our clients range from small fishing vessel owners to multinational construction companies and all benefit from our experience and proactive working practices.
