Product of the Week: Alukwa to reveal latest innovation at METSTRADE

Written by Gemma Fottles

Ahead of the METSTRADE show scheduled to kick off in just a few days time, Dutch company Alukwa are excited to reveal their latest innovation, an entirely new type of door designed specifically for superyachts. The flush door has been developed very recently, and will be revealed in full at the show next week.

Designs available to the market include single leaf, double leaf and curved doors, and when closed will be fully flush with the superstructure of the superyacht. Alukwa offer potential clients a range of options to choose from to ensure the product fits the requirements of both yacht and owner, including the possibility of lowering the door step.

Speaking of the new product, Ronald van der Vlist of Alukwa comments: “We are continuously challenging ourselves to improve and develop new doors for the superyacht industry with focus on safety and reliability. This new generation flush doors and the advanced drive system offers sets a new standard for this type of door.

Other notable features include a newly developed advanced drive system, and can be designed for a door opening of five metres. Able to handle large door weights and with minimal technical parts visible, Alukwa are confident the new flush door will meet the high expectations of superyacht owners, crew and industry professionals alike.

For more information or to arrange a meeting at the METSTRADE show from 15th to 17th November in Amsterdam, contact Ronald van der Vlist directly at the contact details below. Alukwa will be located in the SuperYacht Pavilion at stand 10.502.
