Naval Interior

Naval Interior: the thrill of the first time

There is always a first time, and as of the first half of 2023, we’ve had the privilege of having two “first times”: our first project for a German shipyard and our first commission from the Japanese giant NYK. These two prestigious opportunities allow us to demonstrate our expertise as General Contractors and wood craftsmen.

The first time is unforgettable. And it is always accompanied by great excitement, just like what we experienced here at Naval Interior when we received the new commission from NYK, which stands for Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha, one of the oldest and most important shipping companies in the world, part of the Mitsubishi Group and based in Japan.

Our turnkey solution for NYK

For NYK, we are contributing as a General Contractor to creating interiors for the Asuka III. This cruise ship will be built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany. The cruise ship falls into the high-end range of the Japanese shipowner, with a gross tonnage of over 50,000 and a capacity of 744 passengers. Delivery is scheduled for 2025, and our offices are already working on the turnkey project for the Four Seasons Restaurant, the Mariner’s Club, and the Casino and Retail areas.

Debut in Papenburg, Germany

It is our first time working with a German shipyard, specifically the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg. Soon, the Silver Nova from Silversea Cruises will set sail from here, the first of two ships planned in the Nova class. The boat is part of the company’s Project Evolution and will feature innovative hybrid power, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40% per double suite.

For this new building, we have created La Terrazza Restaurant, one of the most luxurious restaurants on board the Silver Nova. It will accommodate 216 people in over 811 square meters. Our workshops have crafted the furniture and furnishings of this spectacular restaurant, surrounded by full-height windows with panoramic views. We embraced this challenge with courage and determination, knowing that our craftsmanship and 4.0 technologies would make a difference.
