Industry Mourns Chuck Neville

The yacht designer and naval architect passed away earlier this year. He is remembered by Bill Parlatore of Seattle Yachts.

It is sad news that I pass on that Charles “Chuck” Neville passed away earlier this month. His untimely passing adds to the growing ranks of other notables we have lost, in part, to the coronavirus.


Chuck was one of our first advertisers in Passagemaker Magazine, and over the years we operated in Eastport, Chuck would drop by on occasion when he was in town to see what we were working on. Over the many lunches that usually followed, we would talk about his latest projects, hull shapes, and one of his favorite topics, vessel stability. He always had something to say, and his occasional rants became popular elements in his magazine ads.
