This is the second episode of the creation of the first ever built one-off sailing yacht without a traditional mould and the associated lead-time and tooling waste by using a relatively new product, the 3D Core KitTM of Curve Works. For this Eagle 46 sailing Yacht, a minimal wooden assembly jig is used to assemble and bond the thermoformed foam core kit. The foam core kit subsequently forms the basis for the lamination of the inner and outer carbon structure. The Eagle 46 is build for Leonardo Yachts B.V.
We are very proud that we are one of the three nominees for the JEC-awards in the ‘Maritime transportation and shipbuilding’ with this project. The other two nominees are OceanWings from the French company Ayro and the Hydrogen Chase Boat from the Swiss company Gurit, developed for the America’s Cup. Watch the ceremony live on february 8th – from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.ย
