Yacht metalwork guides
Metal is probably the most widely used material on board a modern superyacht, whether it is the hull, handrails or helipad. With so much metal used on board it is inevitable that an owner or captain will require the services of a metal fabricator. Read Yachting Pages guides below to find out what to look for in a metal fabricator and to find out what metal is better to use on board a yacht in the first place.
It is not always easy to know what to look for when hiring a specialist marine fabricator. Therefore Yachting Pages has put together this guide to help a yacht engineer, captain or even a management company, find reputable metal fabricators who are experience in working with yachts and superyachts.
Superyachts can be made out of a wide range of metals. Here Yachting Pages and leading yacht metalwork companies compare two of the more common metals used for a boat hull; steel and aluminium. We look at the pros and cons of each metal, which will hopefully give anybody a more informed choice.
