More Photos from the Westlawn 75th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee


March 10, 2005, Edgewater, MD: The Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology commemorated its remarkable record of supplying talented designers and marine industry professionals for 75 years (1930 – 2005) during its Diamond Jubilee celebration. 


Sponsored by Hargrave Custom Yachts, Westlawn’s Diamond Jubilee celebration was held in Miami, FL, on February 17.  Taking the form of a gallery opening, Westlawn highlighted the “art of yacht design” by featuring the designs of numerous Westlawn alumni, in addition to holding an awards ceremony, which included the induction of Philip L. Rhodes and Olin J. Stephens, as the first two inductees of the newly established “North American Boat Designers Hall of Fame.”





















Founded in 1930, the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology is the only nationally accredited and state certified distance-learning school of small-craft design in the United States. As the not-for-profit educational affiliate of the American Boat and Yacht Council, Westlawn’s primary function is to assure a continual source of highly skilled designers to the marine industry.
