"Marine Industry is a global industry, but definitely with a few centers. Fortunately for me, Rhode Island is one of those." -Ezra Smith
Welcome @volvooceanrace to Newport, RI, one of the world's marine capitals...AND one of the world's design capitals! Meet Ezra Smith (www.ezrasmith.com), an architect and industrial designer focused on creating functional beauty and beautiful function in marine and residential architecture - in his design of hard wing sails and foiling systems for C Class catamarans, a wheelchair accessible lobster yacht, and the interior design of many mega yachts, including the Oliver Hazard Perry, a 190' square-rigged sailing school vessel.
