A few thousand kilograms of weight reduction of a deckhouse not only gives Windcat Workboats the advantage of saving weight and fuel, but also reduces the top weight on their boats resulting in a more stable boat (less movement at sea means less seasickness for the crew and passengers ). In addition, the composite walls provide a quieter cabin thanks to the sound-absorbing properties of composite.
Another big advantage is the fact that our composite deckhouses are also corrosion-free. This saves a lot of maintenance time and saves money for the shipping company. If a repair is necessary in a highly unlikely event, welding is not necessary. So no chance of a fire hazard, which increases safety on board, and that is always good at sea.
