RUURT MEULEMANS

Having sailed on long-distance ocean trips with the family since he was a kid, Ruurt’s passion for yachts and design has never stopped growing. After completing his degree in aeronautical engineering he went to Delft University of Technology for his masters in Maritime Engineering.
Ruurt joined Hoek Design in 1999 as a specialist in aeronautics and hydrodynamics. He became managing partner in the business in 2011 and is head of the design office. 
Ruurt is specialised in the performance analysis of yachts. This involves the lines plans of the hull and appendages, the sail plan and rig layout, and wind tunnel and tank testing when required. Hands-on experience gained from sailing in various superyacht races helps to match the practical side of his work.
