The carbon hull for the 17m motorboat was craned out of the shop of PDC last Saturday. An exciting day for our team because the yacht is 17m long, 5m wide and over 6m high and barely fit through the door. Since the hull cannot be transported by road, it has been moved to the ramp. Monday was a BBQ here to celebrate the completion of this big project. This party was a thank you from the owner of the ship. Early this morning the ship was put on a pontoon and is now on its way to the finisher in Enkhuizen.
The project started a year ago with making the drawings of the moulds. These moulds are milled as a kit and then built up. Because the ship was too big for PDC’s oven, the mould was designed to function as an oven. In addition, a special frame was built with gangways inside the mould, because the hull was too high to be able to laminate everywhere.
After the hull, deck and flybridge where built apart, all parts were assembled and laminated together. In addition, separate parts have been made such as shutters and benches for the flybridge. The hull weighs less than 5000 kg in total. The project will be completed in Enkhuizen, where they will paint the hull and provide it with paneling and technology. The official launch will be in about a year to a year and a half.
