Since its inception in 1987 as a partnership between
Christo Smit and Richard Daggitt, (then known as Daggitt Smit & Associates,
now Triton Naval Architects cc), the company has evolved, yet largely
remained the same, in retaining a number of the same core people for
between 16 and 30+ years.
During this time it has become a household name in
Cape Town, the greater South Africa, and Namibia for Ship Design,
Ship Stability, Powering, Mooring and Motion Studies, Structural Design
and Analysis, Salvage Support, and all other aspects of Naval Architecture
and Marine Engineering.
While Richard left in 1993, Barry Kingwill joined
as a partner in 1997.
TNA employs two naval architects, namely
BSc Eng (Marine) Stellenbosch, MSc (Nav Arch) UCL, London
B Eng (Mech) Stellenbosch, MSc Eng (Marine/Nav Arch) Stellenbosch
And five marine draughtsmen, structural draughtsmen
& mechanical technicians, one Master Mariner and three administrative
and financial support staff.
Triton also regularily takes on engineering / naval
architectural student interns, particulary from foreign universities,
for examply a number have come from Germany, Holland, USA, France
etc, with their longer intern periods (4 to 6 months), which are often
preferred over the shorter requirements (3 to 4 weeks) of the local
