Company History 

The Avia Design Group was founded by Grahame Shannon and associates. Between us we have many years of experience designing and building fine boats.

Mr. Shannon also founded Autoship Systems Corp., the worlds leading developer of boat and ship design software. Naturally, we use Autoship as our primary design tool. The boats and other objects you see throughout this site were all designed with Autoship(TM) and rendered with 3D Studio(TM) or Corel Bryce(TM).

We design to international standards, complying with USCG, NMMA, EU, ISO and classification societies where appropriate. Plans can be submitted for ABS, Lloyds or DNV approval. Stability and performance predictions are carried out using the latest computer simulations.

Quality of design is our commitment. We ask that our clients commit to quality of manufacture.
