Tom Weaver and Mick Price have known each other for years through Annapolis’ yacht racing community as well as their careers. Weaver, 42, earned a degree in Naval Architecture and Mechanical Engineering from the University of Sunderland, England. He helped Farr International develop several grand prix classes including the Mumm 30, Corel 45 and Farr 40, spent a year as crew for Steve Fossett’s Playstation and five years as team manager of the Mascalzone Latino America’s Cup campaign. Price, 49, also a lifelong sailor, designed the Condor 30 and 40 trimarans in Annapolis in the mid-1980s, then went on to 15 years as a senior designer with Farr Yacht Design. In 2005 he opened his own design firm where he quickly took on a variety of powerboat projects, among them a 38-foot cruiser by Mathews Brothers in Denton, Md., a 26-foot Carolina-style sportfish for Composite Yacht in Cambridge, a pair of draketails for Annapolis builder Larry Belkov and 26- and 35-foot Carolina sportfish for custom builder Reid Bandy. Between the two of them they have worked on every element of leading edge, multi-million-dollar racing projects from concept and design through construction, sea trial and project management.
