Beekmans RVS delivers some of the world’s finest stainless steel installations and specialised glass features to most top yards. At least fifteen of the major superyachts on display at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show feature Beekmans work, ranging from superlative windshields to oval tube railings.
Mike Gilsing, sales manager at Beekmans, comments, “events like this are an excellent showcase of our work. Throughout the year our engineers are busy with an impressive range of complex projects for yards such as Feadship, Oceanco, Lürssen, Delta, Perini Navi, Heesen, Abeking & Rasmussen and Amels. Of the superyachts on the quay In Monaco we have supplied our products to at least fifteen, ranging from 50 to 92 metres in length. This includes eleven windshields with glass, over 1100 metres of oval tube railings, four complete stainless steel outfittings, bollards, windbreakers, retractable awnings, foldable helideck rails and fairleads.”
One of the projects that can be particularly admired is the new 73 metre Perini Navi motoryacht Grace E, which showcases the entire range of Beekmans’ work across her five decks, including premium quality oval tube railing with glass.
An example at Monaco of the company’s turnkey work can be found in the windshields on the new 60 metre Amels motoryacht, Event. “This Amels 199 features entirely custom made windshields with stunning stainless steel stanchions and bent glass,” explains Gilsing. “Our team designed, manufactured and installed these superior pieces, and everything fits perfectly. Ironically, perhaps, people don’t even notice the windshields on the top of a superyacht if they are done well. After months of painstaking craft on Event, we reached the quality level that makes her windshields virtually invisible except to those looking specifically for them.”
Mike Gilsing will be in Monaco throughout the show, and interested parties are invited to contact him for a personal tour looking at the exteriors of the many impressive vessels Beekman’s have worked on. He can be contacted at [email protected].
