Stephen Payne - Lead Naval Architect of QUEEN MARY 2
Voyage date: 10 November 2011
Stephen Payne’s appointment as project manager for Cunard’s QUEEN MARY 2 is no doubt the greatest and most prestigious assignment that any naval architect could wish for. Stephen has been involved in ship planning and building for 26 years. His stellar career was the ultimate realisation of a dream and an ambition that he first set his sights on at the age of nine years. Stephen’s interests in ship design lead him to enrol in the Ship Sciences and Naval Architecture programme at Southampton University. After working a short while for Marconi Marine, who was bidding on contracts for naval replenishment ships, Stephen was contacted in late 1984 by the naval architectural firm, Technical Marine Planning, with an offer to work on passenger ship design. Stephen is now Senior Naval Architect for Carnival Corporation Technical Services division in London.
