Naval Tecno Sud Boat Stand at METSTRADE

Naval Tecno Sud will join the METSTRADE Amsterdam with four exclusive premieres.

Just a few days to go before the opening of METSTRADE in Amsterdam, the world’s largest trade fair for professionals in the yachting equipment sector. This eagerly awaited event, which will take place between 15 and 17 November 2022, will see the participation of the biggest brands, including Naval Tecno Sud: a company specializing in the design and marketing of CE-certified boating products.

Active for more than ten years, the Italian company founded by its owner, Roberto Spadavecchia, constantly builds and innovates accessories for shipyards around the world. In fact, Naval Tecno Sud’s products are known and appreciated worldwide, also thanks to the commitment and perseverance shown by the president and his team, who assiduously participate in the various sector exhibitions.

This has naval-tecno-sud-productsallowed the company to expand its field of action and sell abroad, although most of its products are sold in Europe. 60% of production is sold in the EU, of which half, 30 per cent, is sold in Italy alone, while the remaining 40% is bought in America, Australia and other smaller countries.

The METS Amsterdam is an unmissable appointment for the company, which invests and develops ever more innovative products for the storage and transport of boats in shipyards. All of their products are CE-certified and their materials are of the highest quality. They also boast an ironworks certificate attesting to the quality of the product and its mechanical properties.

Roberto Spadavecchia started the company by following a new line compared to what had been seen in the past: he tried to renew all the polluting equipment that was used in the harbour to support and work the hulls of even very large boats. Gradually it replaced them with quality products to guarantee the safety of the workers, while also making the yard itself cleaner and more sustainable. According to these principles, the company develops above all cradles, fixed and adjustable heels and trailers for large boats, both motor and sailing, and these are the company’s best-selling products.

naval-tecno-sud-metsMETS is therefore an annual opportunity for Naval Tecno Sud to demonstrate and sell, not only more sustainable products, but also certified products to protect operators and ensure they work safely.  The company’s booth will be located at 05.806 in Hall 5 – Marine & Yard Pavilion.

Four exclusive premieres involving mega-yacht accessories, in constant demand at Naval Tecno Sud, will be presented this year. The products unveiled for the first time at METS will be: vertical cradles, fixed heels for the keel, adjustable double-telescoping heels for motor-powered megayachts, and a transportable cradle for sailing megayachts.

These products are all fundamental and important for a shipyard that has to store or do work on large vessels, and the choice to present them precisely at METSTRADE Amsterdam is not accidental, but a strategic choice, as owner Roberto Spadavecchia also confirms:

“We have been attending METS for ten years, ever since the company was born, because we make accessories and products for boatyards and METS is the most specialized event in the world for this. While the other exhibitions have both boats and accessories, METS is only accessories, so visitors are usually the shipyards who are interested in buying our products.

All the other exhibitions are divided between boats and accessories, so the audience is divided between: the family with children who maybe go to look at the boats and the people who come for the accessories. METS, on the other hand, being also a midweek event, without taking up any weekends, sees the presence only of sector operators, so it is much more concentrated and specialized in what we make.”

Electric Corvetta 24 on the market: the dolce vita of the future.

///

The new electric Corvetta 24 wins everyone over: zero environmental impact and traction aesthetics.

Giorgio Mussini shipyard’s new Corvetta has recently been launched on the market, this time in an electric version. The historic Portofino-based shipyard led by founder Giorgio and his son Gaetano has developed a unit they have been dreaming of for years: a day cruiser with almost zero environmental impact.

electric corvetta 24Precisely during the period of the Covid-19 pandemic, the company pushed the accelerator of creativity and resourcefulness by combining its handcrafted product with electric propulsion.

The propulsion unit was developed and supplied by E4Boat, a network of highly specialized and innovative companies in advanced robotics, electrified and hybrid propulsion and shipbuilding.

The electric Corvetta 24 thus presents itself as an environmentally and financially friendly recreational boat, dedicated to families taking a day trip and slow tourism whether at sea or on the lake.

Corvetta 24 – Design

Featuring elegant and sophisticated lines, the icon of the Giorgio Mussini shipyard that is a symbol of the dolce vita in Portofino is now green. The yard’s first ecological boat astonishes and conquers, taking nothing away from aesthetics and tradition but, on the contrary, adding an important step forward in terms of savings and environmental pollution. Only plus points for this luxurious and exciting craft, almost 8 metres long, characterized by a fibreglass hull, a very deep V-shaped bow and a hull designed to enhance the strengths of the day cruiser: speed, handling and incredible seaworthiness even in very difficult conditions.

All this is combined with precious mahogany or teak finishes that unify the boat and give it that air of craftsmanship and warmth that wood can give.

Electric propulsion

The engine of this corvetta-24-detailCorvetta 24 is the real revolution: permanent magnet electric propulsion generating a minimum power of 30kW with a static power converter and battery modules for a total of 65kWk which translates into an autonomy of no less than 4 hours for the owner.

Not only is the environmental impact reduced to zero, but another important peculiarity comes into play: you will be able to navigate listening only to the sound of the sea.

In fact, the electric engine, unlike the endothermic one, guarantees an unprecedented silence that renews the classic experience at sea aboard a Corvetta and allows the owner to drive and listen only to the music of the sea beating against the hull.

The new electric Corvetta 24 makes a real leap forward for Giorgio Mussini shipyard, which has always been a producer of fine yachts, with tradition in its heart and a mind in the future, as this new model on the market demonstrates.
