Melbourne Smith Designer and Consultant
Well-known naval architect Melbourne Smith is the designer of Lynx. A designer and builder of historical sailing vessels for more than 25 years, Smith began his career in 1975 after 20 years of ocean and coastal sailing. In addition to Lynx, other ships he has designed are the U.S. Brig Niagara, Californian, Spirit of Massachusetts, Pride of Baltimore and Federalist.
A recognized marine illustrator with ship prints published by the U.S. Naval Institute and American Heritage Press, Smith is president of the International Historical Watercraft Society. He also serves as co-chairman of Advisors to the National Maritime Historical Society and is a trustee of the American Ship Trust.
In addition, Smith founded the American Clipper Trust, a not-for-profit organization which plans to construct the 1845 clipper ship, Sea Witch; its goal is to provide an experiential approach to maritime archeology as a working example.
He is a resident of Annapolis, Maryland where he lives with his wife, Lilith, and is currently leading national efforts to establish the American Clipper Ship Museum. He is also now working with the Fair American Historic Foundation to research, design and build the 1790 flagship of King Kamehameha's war fleet that helped unify the Hawaiian islands.

Each drawing is hand-inked by our Lead Designer, Melbourne Smith, who uses time-tested naval architecture skills and decades of experience to carefully craft every aspect of the ship's design. Other members of the design team contribute hours of study and planning to the execution of the final drawings.
Arcane as the process of drawing complicated designs by hand seems, Melbourne's decades of experience allow him to detect issues early, and plan ahead. Other, younger members of the team - as well as most of the reviewing members of the Board of Directors - study 3D models and renderings generated from the final drawings. While not as technically amazing as Melbourne's age-old skills - they still create some fantastic visuals!
