Nahema, in order to build the first 120 feet composite luxury cruising catamaran on the market, is outsourcing the best for each step of the production process. Nahema searched Worldwide for a partner able to master the technology of manufacturing innovative and flawless moulds. The size and the ground-breaking design of the Nahema 120, the need to obtain perfect and complex hulls, cockpit, roof, deck, fly-bridge and appendices shapes simply required the best moulds available.
Nahema found a talented partner in mouldCAM an Australian based company formed by Jaime Marina and Toby Whitfield in 2001. The moulds they produce are exceptionally accurate. In the case of the **** , they guarantee that the boat design will be translated so closely – within 1mm per 10m – that little or no fairing will be required. This will also result in a substantially lighter and optimally performing yacht corresponding perfectly to Nahema’s concept of perfection and performance.
Jaime Marina and Toby Whitfield met on the professional racing circuit. They saw how a large format 5 axis milling could be used to cut the hulls of an America Cup competitor and thought it would be a great tool for the yachting industry. They have developed a technology, from the computer program to the drilling process, able to satisfy the most demanding designs.
The Nahema 120 hull moulds have been shipped from Australia on a cargo ship. They have been unloaded in La Ciotat and are currently being fitted together by mouldCAM’s team. The infusion process will start in the coming weeks.
