CUSTOM BUILD YACHTS
The founders have a passion for Italian style, build quality and performance. Their joint experience leaves them highly skilled, experienced and qualified to provide a 360 degree service from design through architecture, engineering and construction. They take a very client focused approach end-to-end, with each ship being custom built. The journey of the build is a once in a lifetime experience in itself and the owners will guide you through the process end-to-end. I think they’re approach is summed up when they refer to the customer as “the principal character of the opera”
Pioneers of Patented Titanium Construction
The innovation of titanium construction makes them unique however, Mike Oliver Yacht Design have decades of experience working with premier shipyards using all materials depending on requirement and budget so consultation is of course core to the process of buying a Mike Oliver Yacht and selecting the best materials, design and features for you.
The benefits of Titanium
Mike Oliver Yacht Design have decades of experience with the worlds premier shipyards using all the traditional materials used in yacht construction. However, bringing a game changing material to the market sets them aside as innovators and adds another line item to the menu, giving you a broader choice to ensure you choose the very best material for you and your yacht. Titanium is a revolutionary development in shipbuilding and here are the benefits it offers:
- Titanium as a material is 50-60% lighter than steel with equal strength, so less fuel required.
- Titanium has a 3 times higher elasticity coefficient, giving the ship more stability in the water.
- Titanium is an excellent thermal insulator which again makes the ship more energy efficient
- Titanium is 100% recyclable
- Titanium is stable, there is no oxidation, so it can stay in water without needing any paint or antifouling. This results in the first raw metal design wordlwide
- Titanium is therefore ecogreen from all points of view.
- The finish can be shiny or matte as with modern supercars.
The founders have combined high school graduation and University degrees in nautical business, construction, architecture and engineering.
Both have solid yachting backgrounds and tenure working with premier names such as: Azimut, San Lorenzo, Overmarine, Rossinavi, Overmarine, and important design offices such as J&J Design.
This partnership prides itself on innovation and one industry leading development they are pioneering is the use of Titanium in shipbuilding. They spent collective time researching important names in metal industry, such as Tag, Titalia, Titanium and collaborating in R&D projects financed by Italian state, related to this material.
In Nov 2019 the Italian minister of development approved a patent for the idea of making a boat that has got as external and visible layer… titanium. This patent will be soon extended to the whole of the EU. So, these builders are true pioneers.
Government funded project
As a result of proposing titanium construction through an association chaired by the president of confindustria nautica, the Tuscany Region of Italy delegated by the Italian Government will fund the project for the development of a 6-meter tender, this was awarded as part of Italies efforts to make shipbuilding more environmentally friendly.
