Ocke Mannerfelt founded the company in 1978 after a successful career in international sail racing.  Since then we have realized over a hundred boat projects and won 16 world championship offshore racing titles.  Mannerfelt Design Team is today recognized worldwide for its good design, energy efficient hulls and innovative details.

Ocke’s son, Ted, is chief designer and now also MD.  Ted started racing boats early and has won world championships in offshore racing.  He studied at the Royal College of Art in London.  Thereafter Ted worked for four years designing concept cars at Jaguar Advanced Design.
Ted has brought the creative design process from the car industry with him which is clearly based on trademark, image and technology.  He also uses the car industry’s advanced CAD design tools to visualize his ideas.  All constructions which have left Mannerfelt Design Team since 2006 have been based on Ted Mannerfelt’s design ideas.
