The Cardinal Series of yachts date from the 1980s and were the foundation of the Warwick Yacht Design Company. Alan Warwick 1934-2018 set up the W.Y.D company in Auckland in 1980 producing over 500 designs to include performance yachts, mono and multihulls, sports fishers, luxury superyachts, high-speed launches and commercial boats. The company quickly gained a reputation for quality design and as such performance cruiser/racers such as the Cardinal 46.
