It is the author's belief that the world of marine interior outfitting is the most demanding of all the construction industries, it is also an industry which has yet to realise its full potential. This will not happen until such times as more sophisticated control procedures and systems are implemented and adhered to. Within this "revolution" it is believed that the interior designer has a big role to play and with that in mind this paper attempts to explain what designers actually do, what their skills actually are and what they bring to the party. Comment is also made on where it is believed things are going wrong and why the industry needs to be revolutionised. The paper sets out where the author thinks things can be improve and what benefits can be gained from land based systems and where the interior designer fits into all of this. Also, the paper attempts to clarify what designers are good at and how they should be selected for the job in the first place.
