Composite Innovation on Open Water

Case Study

Nauta Tender 48′

A mediterranean project our Structural Engineering team is proud to have been involved in.

Gurit Structural Engineering, Gurit SPRINT™ prepreg; Gurit Corecell™ structural core.

Case Study

Baltic 67 Performance cruiser

Baltic Yachts drew on their 48 years of design and building experience to create a full composite boat, with a glass hull and full carbon deck. Using Gurit epoxy SPRINT™ and Corecell™ M foam, Baltic were able to produce a strong, lightweight structure with a significant performance edge.

Sustainability Report
