Career Summary

Curriculum Vitae

Anthony York is the Chief Operating Officer of Brookes Bell. He has a BEng in Naval Architecture from the University of Strathclyde. 


Anthony has considerable experience in the field of stability assessment and rule compliance for a variety of ship types and sizes, and has a detailed knowledge of the application of both deterministic and probabilistic stability standards. He is an experienced NAPA user and has knowledge of a number of other software packages e.g. HECSALV. He has worked on a large number of Ro-Pax and Cruise Liner conversion projects addressing aspects such as trim optimisation, bulbous bow and ducktail design, cargo capacity increases and new rule compliance. Anthony has extensive model testing experience in the area of STOCKHOLM Agreement compliance and has been involved in propulsion and trim optimisation tests for both large and small vessels. He has been directly involved in a number of concept designs for both Cruise and Ro-Pax platforms working with both design offices and yards, and has been involved in projects for flag states developing new stability standards. 

Anthony has worked on a number of casualty investigations with involvement ranging from flooding simulations on COSTA CONCORDIA and stability calculations on small vessels such as Tugs and Fishing vessels. He has also been directly involved in salvage support and refloating plan development for a number of vessels, has carried out collision surveys, and has attended court as an expert witness.
