The superyacht industry is a perennial sieve for cutting edge-technologies, with applications the length and breadth of the vessel. But, there are some which have been developed that have the potential to do more harm than good. Disguised by complex jargon and marketing lingo, when it comes to new technologies, the expertise lies with the manufacturer upon which the industry must rely on, which can understandably result in a degree of confusion and misinformation.
As we focus on ‘Building for the Next Generation’ at The Superyacht Forum we intend to clarify the inner workings of the industry through a series of pressing and essential debate to lay the foundations for the future. And among the most controversial are ceramic- and nano-coatings – both of which are a vital area of debate, with expert opinions on whether cosmetic solutions are, indeed, good or bad for the overall paint system.
