I don't think that there is a rule on this. Some companies like Hunter, Catalina, Tartan and C&C have in house designers, while others like Beneteau, Dehler and Morris use name brand designers. I don't specifically know whether there are in house designers and draft people at Beneteau's South Carolina facilities, but at least in the past, Beneteau would sometimes buy the lines drawings from the name-brand designer and then design their own interiors, detailing, and own engineering.
