Following the launch of the Taylor Made Group´s new watertight door system, reporting a great success, their UK subsidiary — Trend Marine Products Limited — has now delivered a full set of watertight doors with DNV type approval to Abu Dhabi for the 141m motor yacht YAS (ex Swift 141), launched by ADM Shipyards last year as the eleventh largest vessel on the water. The spectacular Yas superyacht features both interior as well as exterior and styling by French studio Pierrejean Design.
Bill Morgan, Project Manager said: “I am delighted with this set of doors which meet the exacting requirements of Abu Dhabi Mar. We have ordered a further set for our next prestigious build.” Certified by DNV through the process of on-site witness testing, prior to delivery to Abu Dhabi, these type approved watertight doors are designed for both superyacht and commercial applications.
“This customer focused application is a testament to our in-house technical capabilities at Trend Marine,” said Greg Spray, Superyacht Sales Manager at Trend Marine Products. “Our dedicated and highly experienced engineers work very closely with our customers to deliver a product which conforms to both classification and customer requirements. The products are then expertly produced by our versatile manufacturing team.”
