Eric Henseval is a graduate yacht designer, with a diploma from the WESTLAWN INSTITUTE OF MARINE TECHNOLOGY, Stamford, Connecticut, USA.Whilst at school and then at University studying law, he learned naval architecture by self-education before entering the Westlawn Institute, where he thoroughly consolidated his skills.

Spending his early years sailing on the family boat, he was immediately attracted to boats as an entity and learned very early through this passion of observing anything floating on water. At the same time, this bond with the sea was reinforced with a passion for sailing. Eric sailed every kind of boats, in cruising and racing, all over the Atlantic.
