Press Release: The quest for better boats in less time continues at Vripack

June 15, 2016

Written by Rachael Steele

Better known to the public as the next-gen technology for gaming, virtual reality headsets are an effective tool to allow designers to review their work without the need to build scaled models.

Vripack Studio has put virtual reality to use to assess ship design and space efficiency before committing to a build, leading to significant reductions in production time and cost. The following is a Press Release from Vripack on the use of virtual reality within the design process.

Press release

The quest for better boats in less time continues at Vripack

In their third of a six-year- mission to reduce the construction time of any new yacht by at least 25%, the Vripack Studio recently made another leap forward. By making use of Virtual Reality they manage to review both design and engineering and bring back fail cost by a staggering 75%.

Creative director Bart Bouwhuis of Vripack explains: “After years and years of very low incremental growth the recent developments in Virtual Reality are exponential now and allow us to use this tool for our reviews instead of making mock ups, prototypes and pre-fabrication. So the cost related to that as well as the time consumption is now fully eliminated. It’s part of history.”

“The initial use, straight out of the box, has allowed for checks of spaces, volumes, heights, sight lines, stairs and what have you more. After nearly twelve months of R&D we’re at a stage where we’re reviewing complete installation sequences, maintainability, accessibility and so on and so forth. We’re basically evaluating the assembly process and the future maintenance of the whole yacht, let aside the training and instructions possibilities for the workers, all this before any hour is wasted on building something that could be done better and in less time,” Bart confirms.

“Our innovations in construction processes already led to the development of Smart Kit ® resulting in a 15% hull building time reduction. This innovation is followed by Boat Blocks ® that we currently use in production and through which we already see double digit savings. With the development of Virtual Prototyping ® we enter a third phase of evolution. With the first yachts in built, using the combination of these modern design solutions, it’s a bit early for final conclusions on exact time saved but I can disclose that we’re heading towards well over 20% and we’re building at very reputable yards which themselves are even more amazed by the efficiency and added quality of their new work,” Bart proudly smiles.

In 2014 Vripack released their 2019 vision in which they give themselves six years to reach the goal of reducing building time by at least 25% while delivering a better boat. The first results of their in-house created innovations show they’re well ahead of schedule. With their can-do mentality and three more years to come this is very promising to say the least.

About Vripack ®
Established in 1961, Vripack is a leading full service yacht design, naval architecture and engineering studio with over 7300 projects under its belt. Vripack focuses on realizing better ships in less time for private customers and yards world-wide. At Vripack we believe that a good design should not meet all requirements, it should surpass them in order to create a boat that goes beyond dreams.
