Yacht designers, builders and industry experts share common development targets and solutions. The third edition of the Round Table dedicated to boatbuilding construction and materials will be held on 19-20 November as part of this year’s METSTRADE Show in Amsterdam.

Advanced materials and the latest production technologies will be on stage and in the spotlight at the Construction Material Pavilion in the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.

Established in 2017, the Round Table sessions bring together leaders in the marine sector in an informal and lively setting to exchange opinions and experiences on the very latest developments. The third edition will feature two key topics – ‘Fatigue behaviour of composite vessels under slamming’ and ‘How to improve composite design thanks to better failure understanding – the latest news on the Recycling of FRP boats’.

Also high on the agenda is boat recycling and reuse. While the journey towards truly recyclable composites remains a long one, the Round Table will stimulate designers and builders of composite boats to join the discussion and seek answers to the questions that emerge from the debate.

The Round Table offers a unique opportunity to meet professionals from the marine industry engaged in research, design, production, marketing and service activities. It is a direct way to gather technical, technological and scientific information and get up to speed with the main challenges faced by designers and builders working with innovative materials to build ever faster and lighter boats.

Speakers include Sergio Abrami (Studio Sergio Abrami YD), Stefano Beltrando (QI Composites), Enrico Benco, (GS4C), Giovanni Ceccarelli (Ceccarelli Yacht Design), Antimo Di Martino (Environmental and sustainability advisor, UCINA-Confindustria Nautica), Mario Malinconico (Istituto per polimeri, compositi e biomateriali CNR), Luca Olivari (OlivariEng) e Paolo Schito (Politecnico di Milano).

A Q&A is scheduled at the end of each session and participants are also invited to ask questions at the conclusion of each presentation.

The Round Table will be held from 13:30-16:00 on 19 November and from 10:30-12:30 on 20 November in the Elicium Centre (D202, Construction Material Pavilion). Registration opens half an hour before the event begins.

Participation is free.
