A German SME has developed a technology to manufacture variable-width hulls in the yacht segment. The technology was successfully tested in a prototype of a wide-variable catamaran over several years and developed to market readiness. The company is looking for a manufacturing agreement with a shipyard partner having experience in vacuum infusion technology and the construction of yachts as well as a serial manufacturing infrastructure.
A German SME is owner of knowhow and patents in the main maritime countries for the world's first variable-width catamaran. The displacement of the hulls guarantees maximum safety on the water at costs, which are equal to those of a monohull yacht.
Meanwhile a prototype and a first serial boat have been built and the SME is now looking for a partner to manufacture the first product line. The external dimensions of the ship are 15x8 metres, the living area is nearly 40sqm. The hydraulic adjustment of the two hulls reduces the cost of berths.
The boat has a completely disabled accessible gondola. Due to the multi-hull technology, the boat is absolute safe in the water and due to its low draught it has the highest range of application of all yacht types.
The company owns all the moulds required for mass production for over 100 catamarans. The ship has a basic equipment for a fully functional charter boat. There is also a BOM (Bill of Materials) of potential additional options. The production start should already be this summer.
The required partner must have:
- a sufficient hall infrastructure for the simultaneous production of several ships,
- a multidisciplinary core workforce
- excellent experience in the field of vacuum infusion technology
- sufficient financial capacity, which ensures a proper and high-quality order processing
The company is interested in building a long-term partnership in form of a manufacturing agreement in the form of contract manufacturing. Due to shorter transportation distances partners in the Mediterranean but also other countries with sea access are preferred.
As the ships are made from plastics specific production technology processes are demanded and it is above all important that the partner has experience and a good know-how in vacuum infusion technology. Moreover, experience in the construction of multi-hull vessels is an advantage.
Type of Partner: Industry
Specific area of activity: Manufacturer (shipyard) with know-how in vacuum infusion technology
Tasks to be performed: Production partner for the new ship.
