VRIPACK

The world of ship and yacht building completely relies on today’s conventional construction methods. Yachts and ships can withstand the forces of nature because of their structure of girders and frames. But how favorable is this?

At this moment, nature more often uses superior example for technical problems. Many technical problems could have already been solved by the use of inspiration from nature. Therefore a question is raised asking if a more natural, bionic, structure has potential for the use of strengthening yachts. Whereby reduction in waste, costs and building time are subjects to consider.
