William Garden is an accomplished naval architect and marine engineer. He has spent over six decades creating designs for watercraft ranging from commercial fishing vessels to tugboats to motor and sailing yachts. His work celebrates the art of ship design, instantly recognizable as exceptionally seaworthy, sensibly built, and of distinct proportion and grace. He has produced over 650 designs from which thousands of boats have been built around the world, and his design work is featured in maritime museum collections throughout North America. A valued mentor and inspiration to generations of Canadian yacht designers, he has helped put Canada at the forefront in this field.
