TV Lifts

Viareggio 2008

The request of the client was to install TV suspended from the ceiling on the main and upper deck. The time given to us to complete our intervention on board was only three weeks.main deck port side

While several good lift and fold systems exist on the market, none of them would fit in the very thin volume left in each ceiling.

A studied and specially created mechanical system based on gas and electric rams driving a composite frame made it possible to fit the screens on their dedicated place.main deck ouvert

With all the systems tried and tested in the workshop, the remaining work on board within the limited time was to cut the ceiling and finish off with a small gel coat cornice.

Our skill and experience allowed us to find solution where an existing device would not satisfy.

Fly Bridge Hard Top

Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat 2013, 

On this 23 M motor yacht, the old bimini made of stainless steel tubes and canvas suffered each year from the sun and rain.

It was too weak to be left out with big winds and was not giving much protection from the summer heat. It was thus decided to replace it with a hart-top situated in front of the existing roll bar.

This permanent part needed to be strong enough to sustain all bad weather conditions the boat might encounter while remaining light enough to avoid needing extra reinforcement and weight in the upper area.

The careful design of the new shape and its air flow simulation enabled us to keep the windage low even when facing an eighty Knots apparent wind.

A light composite construction allowed us to keep the weight to a minimum. The addition of three apertures equipped with smart glasses made it possible to look at the stars at night while enjoying the shade during the hot sunny days.
