The Dutch yacht design and engineering specialist’s ‘Smart Constructions’ initiative is claimed to offer significant man-hour savings during fabrication of metal hulls and superstructures.

Extremely high detail 3D engineering is key to this new approach, which is believed to be completely new to the yachtbuilding industry.
“It enables Vripack to design and engineer projects for its clients that have the highest production engineering efficiency drawn in from the outset,” says Marnix J Hoekstra, the Sneek-based firm’s sales director. “Without giving too much away, the approach involves a lot more pre-assembly, which translates to much quicker and more accurate fabrication, which in turn leads to less fairing and painting... And the pay-offs are possible without having to learn new build techniques or buy new tools.”
