Danish Yacht are delighted to announce the appointment of Mould Cam in Queensland, Australia to supply CAD CAM moulds for their new build number 116, the Espen Oeino designed 38m jet propelled dayboat.
With her carbon fibre hull, giving a weight saving of at least 25% over conventional composite build, this exciting dayboat is powered by twin diesel engines and will have an astonishing stopping from 50 knots of about 3 boat lengths.
Danish Yacht has ordered high temperature moulds which are to be capable of withstanding baking temperatures of 90 degrees centigrade. The extent of the moulds is over 700 square metres of surface, covering all curved surfaces of the 38m 50 plus knot vessel.
Per Hesselbaek, Managing Director of Danish Yacht said, “We are delighted to have Mould Cam working alongside us for this prestigious project, which has generated a lot of interest worldwide. With their impressive client list including Ellen McArthur, McConaghy Yachts of Australia and Oyster Yachts in the UK, they have a track record proving that they have the necessary experience to help power this project to a successful conclusion. They have even made film props for the film “The Matrix” for Fox Studios!”
Jonathan McDonnell of Danish Yacht added, “We are very excited to have Mould Cam on board for new build 116. This is an area where we can have significant weight savings and also more efficient and cost effective production processes, which will contribute to the overall success of this very exciting project.”
