London – 28.06.09 – The London based team of designer duo Tim Saunders and Rupert Mann Rebrands have finally decided to split.

The dynamic duo had formed the famous Rainsford Saunders Design Company. Now Tim Saunders is living the company and it will be renamed shortly.

While announcing the split, Rupert Rains ford Mann came up with the announcement that the company is going to experience several important transitions over the next few weeks. “Tim leaves the company in good shape for the future,” said Rupert Mann. “We wish him every success in his new venture.”

“After eight years of successful partnership with and in an amicable arrangement, Tim Saunders will continue his career in yacht design independently. Rainsford Mann Design will become the company’s new name with Mann becoming the sole owner. RMD will continue to focus on its core business of designing motor yachts for both the new build and refit markets and, with its established team of talented designers, the transition is expected to be smooth”, he added.

On his part, Tim Saunders is now leaving to work on a host of new projects under a new banner named the Tim Saunders Yacht Designs. The objective of the new organization would be providing solutions to owners and the yards around the world. It may not be difficult for a man of his repute and stature with strong connection with Turkey as well as good working relations with many countries across the globe.

“The partnership was a great experience,” commented Saunders, “but after eight years I feel ready for a fresh challenge.”

Most likely the new firm will have its base in Bodrum, a dynamically evolving city embracing super yacht construction.
