Naval Interior

Naval Interior: the thrill of the first time

Not one, but two firsts for Naval Interior in this half of 2023: our first project for a German shipyard and the first commission from Japanese giant NYK. Two new and prestigious opportunities to successfully test our know-how as general contractors and wood craftsmen.

You never forget the first time. And it is always a thrilling moment. Like the thrill we experienced here, in Naval Interior, as we received our 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, with its headquarters in Japan.

Our turnkey formula for Japanese company NYK

For Japanese company NYK, we are acting as General Contractor in the design of environments for the ship Asuka III, to be built in Germany’s Meyer Werft shipyard. The cruise ship, which is positioned in the Japanese shipowner’s high-end range, will have a gross tonnage of over 50,000 tonnes and a capacity of 744 passengers. Delivery is scheduled for 2025 and our teams are already busy on the turnkey project for the Four Seasons Restaurant, the Mariner’s Club, the Casino and Retail areas.

Debut in Papenburg, Germany

Our first experience with a German shipyard, to be specific, the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg. Silversea CruisesSilver Nova, the first of two planned ships in the Nova class, will sail from here shortly. The ship is part of the company’s so-called Project Evolution and will have an innovative hybrid power supply,enabling it to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 40% per double suite.

For this new construction, we created La Terrazza Restaurant, one of the most luxurious restaurants on the Silver Nova: it will seat 216 people in over 811 square metres. Our workshops forged the furnishings and fittings that make up this spectacular restaurant, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views. We approached this challenge with courage and determination and in the knowledge that our unique combination of craftsmanship and 4.0 technologies, would make the difference.
