About us

over 100 years of marine expertise


{ Overview }

Brookes Bell is a leading international marine technical and surveying consultancy providing specialist services in areas including emergency response, casualty investigation, salvage and wreck removal operations, scientific cargo expertise, forensic engineering and expert witness services.

Since 1903 we have been serving the marine and energy industries. Using a multidisciplinary approach, we have led these markets with our professional maritime and scientific expertise. Our ground-breaking designs and interpretations of the regulations in the commercial and cruise ship sector are becoming increasingly relevant to the Superyacht sector as vessel sizes increase and regulations become more restrictive.

We are leaders in research and development of vessel design support to enhance maritime safety and technology and we employ a renowned group of Marine Engineers, Civil Engineers, Master Mariners, Naval Architects, Cargo and Fuel Scientists, Fire Investigators and Metallurgists.

{S/Y Industry Expertise}

Over the last 30 years, we have seen our extensive list of skills developed in the cruise ship sector filter into Superyacht design. Brookes Bell’s multidisciplinary approach to identifying and maximising opportunities enables Superyacht and Megayacht owners to fulfil their visions and ambitions whether for a new build, rebuild or refit.

Owners, Captains, Managers, Designers, Engineers and Shipyards can all benefit from employing our expertise as an independent intermediary or as a working partner, to get the best out of a Superyacht at any stage of its life.



{When things go wrong}

Superyachting is a glamorous industry but it is always reassuring to know there is one company to turn to if things go wrong. Whether a mechanical failure or grounding, flood or fire, Brookes Bell are the number one name when it comes to accident investigation, forensic analysis, technical dispute resolution and expert witness skills.



{ Utmost discretion }

When handling the matters of a Superyacht, discretion is everything. That's why we treat all enquiries, claims and project details in the strictest of confidence.
