Super yacht, the flagship of Marmi Vrech

Superyacht: thanks to the excellence in the processing of natural stone and decades of experience as stone manufacturer, Marmi Vrech can boast about its collaboration in exclusive range projects such as Ulysses, the beautiful 107 meter long superyacht signed by the naval architect Oscar Mike on the design of the Norwegian Marin Teknikk studio.

What are the excellences offered by Marmi Vrech to make these queens of the sea unique? Surely beautiful creations in natural stone, admired in the slightest detail.

Furnish a super yacht with natural stone

Making a natural stone artifact for a super yacht requires very special skills.

Skills ranging from the design, construction and installation of elements capable of remaining perfect over time despite the inevitable structural movements of the boat, to the development of maximum aesthetic performance because the exclusivity of a super yacht is represented above all by the art, the preciousness and the beauty of the workmanship.

Collaboration: the secret of a perfect design

Precisely realizing the idea and taste of the client or the architect / designer involved in setting up a super yacht has always been one of the top priorities of Marmi Vrech.

For this reason, right from the first drawings, the company supports the client’s creative team to analyze every single solution and look for the most suitable materials and the most effective finishes to best interpret their every desire. In addition, the company can also carry out the design based on drawings provided or on-board surveys, giving life to all its experience and professionalism. Noteworthy, at this stage, is the possibility of offering high-performance technical solutions, recommending the use of particular elements such as honeycomb steel or aluminum panels covered with flat-weave fiberglass impregnated resins. Structural elements which, in addition to a high mechanical strength, can considerably lighten the natural stone coating.

Obviously, for each project, Marmi Vrech creates a team of dedicated to the job, able to plan all the activities in detail and to draw up and follow the schedule with absolute rigor. The team also supports the customer in the delicate phase of sampling and the choice of materials that takes place directly from suppliers, devoting himself to the proposal of the most suitable natural stones. The search for perfection in this phase is total, because only through a precise and passionate work can sublime realizations be born.

Design and elements rendering

Once the planning is done, and after having made the choice of the single natural stones to be used, Marmi Vrech’s team creates all the operational and planning material necessary for its implementation. Moreover, in order to give the client the closest possible idea to the reality of what has been designed, the team produces 3D renderings and images that, performed artfully, offer a realistic material – almost photographic. Changes, displacements, new ideas often arise in this phase that is essential to achieve the full satisfaction of the client.

The artisan know-how for an exclusive super yacht

Mega yachts are the icon of exclusivity and luxury. For this, every element and every detail must be studied thoroughly in the smallest details. For Marmi Vrech, the work already begins with the choice of the slab of natural stone, which must be the perfect one for the processing to which it is destined. The material, the colors, the grain size, the veins: nothing is left to chance.

The cutting of the slab that, especially for exclusive creations such as book-matched that plays on the specularity of the veins, must be performed with the maximum expertise.

This is followed by various finishes to which Marmi Vrech devotes particular attention in order to increase the prestige and the preciousness of the whole boat. Moreover, these finishes, always to meet the luxurious style of the mega yacht, can be very sought after: an example can be found in the leather finish, first performed with a mechanical roughing and then with a manual processing with special brushes, which gives the natural stone a surface reflecting to the eye and soft to the touch, giving the same sensation that you feel when touching a soft leather object. Furthermore, the perception of cold given by natural stone almost disappears.

Alongside the purely aesthetic finishes there are also surface treatments with certain purposes such as anti-slip treatments in milling, laser or sandblasting notches that, performed in an artfull manner, combine functionality with an absolutely impeccable aesthetic result.

Shipping of artifacts: a very delicate step

When the part of the materials’ processing is finished, one of the most delicate phases arrives: that of the packaging and of the shipments of the manufactured articles. Faithful to its maximum transparency in relations with its customers, before the shipment the customer is invited to the site in order to view each item prepared. The visit is personally guided by the production engineer and no element is neglected.

Once approval is received, Marmi Vrech performs a pre-laying before shipment, to minimize the unexpected events once the material is already on the super yacht (where, to all intents and purposes, it becomes more laborious to make changes). Once this test is over, the material is packed with dedicated packaging and perfected over time: special boxes, polyethylene profiles … everything is prepared with the utmost care and transported using dedicated vehicles and personnel.

High specialty work inside the super yacht

For the installation, Marmi Vrech uses only selected personnel based on experience and the highest specialization. The whole process is supervised by a manager and is carried out perfectly. Any special finishes, such as polishing, can be carried out during installation.

The solutions offered by Marmi Vrech as stone manufacturer for the mega yachts are numerous and all of the utmost excellence because the company has always set as its goal to fully realize the wishes, and possibly even the dreams, of its customers.
