ADVANCED YACHT TECHNOLOGY
In 2006, the Engineering Department became the AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology) centre, one of the world’s most advanced naval research and design hubs. The centre is organized by technology areas and expertise platforms, each focusing on one specific aspect, from Hull Design, Electronic Instrumentation and GFRP Composition and Structures to Technical Systems and Electronics Systems, 3D Construction Modelling, the Naval Registry, and Certifications. AYT collaborates closely with technology partners to develop increasingly innovative, customized and exclusive systems. Specifically, its partnership with ZF led to the development of Smart Command with Easy Dock and Auto Troll functions for optimum vessel manoeuvrability.
