The available alternatives for a more sustainable yachting evolution
In the construction phase, our contribution is important for achieving sustainable construction. It may seem absurd to think about the recovery / demolition of a yacht during the construction phase … but it is a necessary step that has never been considered in the past and that today is absolutely necessary to talk about Sustainable Yachting and therefore also recyclable.
Our contribution during the new construction phase, tends to evaluate, advise and implement all the tricks that make the construction process efficient, quality but also recyclable, easy to disassemble for maintenance and to make refit.
As consultants for new construction or refit of existing yachts, we are concerned with directing the owners’ choice towards the use of sustainable materials, treated in a natural way to limit what we also call “derived environmental pollution”.
The exhalations of solvents remain for a long time and continue and “evaporate” in the environment for some time even after delivery … it is about doing attention to details, to production processes, in order to limit the use of harmful substances both for workers and especially for end users.
There are different materials, types of finishes, products that can be a valid alternative to those commonly used, it is about making the right choices, respecting the style, the decor, and the rules of the various classification entities.
Our studio does not limit itself to recommending sustainable building materials and construction methodologies, when we are faced with new projects, we evaluate the overall impact of design and constructive stylistic choices. A yacht with large glazed areas for example, as is the current trend, is certainly of great appeal. The glazed areas bring natural light, reduce the claustrophobic effect, but at the same time they can lead to big energetic imbalances when you have to think about keeping the ambient temperatures around 20 degrees. We need to consider the greenhouse effect, the need to counter these heating systems with increasingly powerful air conditioners with consequent increase in environmental noise and energy expenditure. But there are technical stylistic solutions that can help and create pleasant, , well-lit but at the same time easy to air-conditioned environments.
We study which is the best construction system both for new constructions and for refit of existing yachts.
