Under construction: The lightweight bulkheads are laminated, like in series production, prefabricated furniture is attached to the ship
When computers and milling machines take over the work of saws and planes for furniture construction, the shipyard saves time and money. There is no need for complex adjustments, the built-in parts can be completely manufactured while the fuselage is being built.
Mittelmann’s shipyard in Kappeln an der Schlei, together with the neighboring Mau joinery, has now used this process for a 44-foot-long individual construction from the computer by designer Georg Nissen. YACHT accompanied the ambitious project and shows the creation of a highly individual ship.
The fuselage was made from balsa wood strips coated with laminate. For the expansion, the owner used a Swan as a guide. The deck is classically created using laminated wooden beams with a tea pad.
The new process can of course be used for every construction and boat size and thus brings the dream of an individual ship a little closer.
