Design Unlimited, an exterior styling and interior design company, has expanded its team with the addition of two new staff members. The studio, which has been responsible for the interior design and exterior styling of yachts such as Bliss, Hamilton and Karia, is based on the south coast of England and counts production boatbuilder Sunseeker as a loyal client.
Suzie Brushett joins as personal assistant to founder and lead designer Mark Tucker, managing both his schedule and playing an important role in the smooth running of the studio. She has worked in a number of leading yachting organisations including the RYA, ISAF and Challenge Business, as well as at brokerage house Burgess. Brushett is a keen dinghy sailor, most recently with her young family, and also has experience of keelboat racing on the Solent.
Meanwhile Marcus Rayner has joined the company as a designer. With a first-class degree from Coventry University in Transport and Product Design, early jobs included working in product design as well as taking a lead role on the development of a concept sports car for Concept Climax Ltd. Thereafter he joined Sunseeker where, over a five year period, he focused on interior design and development right across the model range. Marcus is also an experienced recreational sailor.
“We’re very pleased to welcome them to the DU team,” comments Mark Tucker. “The studio is currently busy with both custom superyacht and production projects, and Marcus and Suzie represent a valuable addition to our capability.”
Current projects underway at Design Unlimited include the 33m (108ft) WinWin and the 47m (155ft) Pink Gin VI sailing yachts, a number of major motor yacht refits, and active partnerships with production yards including Bavaria, Windy Boats and Sirena Marine.
