Wolz Nautic, the specialist for high-quality ship floor deckings from Gaukönigshofen in Franconia, Germany, together with its partners is redefining sustainability in yacht deck construction and manufacturing boat decks with wood from sustainable forestry.
A wood that has undergone long-term testing and double modification will be used as the deck covering in various future projects. Together with a weight and noise-reducing 3D cork as levelling material, Wolz Nautic's product range enables the company to deliver a system that ultimately represents an innovative and sustainable overall solution.
TESUMO will be presented for the first time at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019 at the Wolz Nautic booth (Darse Sud, booth DS68). The Wolz Nautic team will provide information on this solution there. (www.tesumo.com)
This wood will be used, amongst other projects, for the REV (https://www.revocean.org), which is set to become the largest megayacht in the world. Other projects are at the planning stage.
"By using a new alternative, the company aims to win over other owners or shipyards as well, and thus make a key contribution in terms of sustainability in yacht building," announced Michael Wolz, Managing Director of Wolz Nautic.
Besides its broad range of conventional materials for yacht deck construction, Wolz Nautic already began some time ago to use other materials and take part in the development of sustainable wooden deck solutions.
The current sustainable solution from TESUMO comes very close to the properties and visual appearance of teak, and would for the first time be an real alternative crafted from natural wood that is also biodegradable.
Among other activities, Wolz Nautic started a cooperation with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and joined the "Wood Forever Pact" in 2017. 2019 saw this initiative integrated into the "Sustainable Yachting Network". This is an initiative brought into being by Prince Albert II, aimed at building up a network of members from the yachting industry committed to the responsible use of resources in yacht building.
