Sea Shepherd: Operation Pahu


2020

The academic brief was to design a jet-powered boat within dimensional parameters provided. In response, my team developed the Sea Shepherd: Operation Pahu through iterative cycles of drawing, modeling, and CAD development. We selected Sea Shepherd as an organisation as they have a strong aesthetic identity but their fleet is not particularly reflective of this. We used their Pahu Operation as the inspiration for the tasks that the boat would need to perform (identifying and surveying Maui and Hector dolphins) as it allowed for us to design in response to a conservation issue close to home.
Throughout this process we used:

- Drawing
- Vehicle analysis
- CAD modelling
- Full scale spatial prototyping 
- Rendering
