European boat design innovation group: The Marine Design Manifesto
Paper i proceeding, 2014

A manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives, or views of an issue. It accepts a previously published opinion and promotes a new idea with prescriptive notions for carrying out changes that the authors believe should be made. Marine Design is presented as an interdisciplinary holistic approach to boat design, based on the methodologies of Industrial Design, which are informed by both Human Factors and Engineering. The authors as experts in their respective disciplines present the Marine Design Manifesto as a framework for innovation within the marine industry. In every professional field there are definitive texts, this paper provides advocacy for Marine Design, an interdisciplinary approach in its infancy. The authors review key Industrial Design manifestos in the context of Marine Design. They then present a contextualised Marine Design manifesto. © 2014: The Royal Institution of Naval Architects.
