Project and Technology

Maths calculations, simulations, the definition of water lines take shape in the model of the hull.

The result is the fi rst boat prototype, which is tested and improved until it reaches the standards of the project: safety, comfort and performance, in order. 

Tests are carried out in the most different sea and weather conditions: the results help to defi ne the space and the volume of the deck, which must be manufactured according to the barycenter as well as the static and dynamic balance of the boat under any condition and at any speed.

Once the virtual project is perfectly defined, huge five axis milling machines with computer numerical control (CNC) give shape to the real boat: cut after cut they drill, plane and refi ne a big piece of a particular resin called “chocolate”.Through an accurate polishing, the magic touch of handwork finishes up the fi nal prototype, from which the moulds will be obtained.

Once the prototype is fi nished and the moulds are ready, it is the turn of the boatyard: moulding, tubulars, gluing, scuttlebutts, pillows.A skilled production management takes control in order to balance refined craftsmanship with advanced technology.It is the birth of a new ZAR.
