Contrast Marine is the result of over 5 years of design development. With a portfolio building, a theme and philosophy became clearly apparent. This theme and philosophy is one of form and function that doesn’t follow traditional conventions or habitual fashions.

Lawrence Peckham

The technical force behind one of Britain’s most successful modern wooden boat builders, Lawrence has 10 years’ experience in the design and project management of sailing yachts and powerboats from 5 to 35m. From an early age a love of the form that naturally follows the function of all vessels that operate on the water influenced a life connected with the water. A childhood spent using it for pleasure in dinghy sailing and scuba diving led to the decision to pursue it for a career. A degree from University College London in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering then readied the way for the projects to come.
