Mega yachts

Because of these honorable duties, the vessels are subject to stringent requirements as stipulated by the authorities – also in terms of their interior outfitting. R&M guarantees quality, safety and durability of all installed interior and systems on board.

R&M Group takes responsibility for the interior design and the complex heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. Consultation for noise protection and equipment goes so far as to include the building of the ship. The planning and furnishing starts with the crew and service areas and ends at the heart of every mega yacht: The owner’s cabin. Here, the design is centered around the use of genuine wood and luxury materials, a first-class design and quality of workmanship that meets the highest of demands.

 

Authority vessels

Authority vessels cannot be placed in any specific type of ship category. Their construction is just as diverse as are their duties. They go out to sea to search for wrecked ships, perform survey work or combat oil spills. They are there when it comes to ship accidents and fishery or coastal protection.

Because of these honorable duties, the vessels are subject to stringent requirements as stipulated by the authorities – also in terms of their interior outfitting. R&M guarantees quality, safety and durability of all installed interior and systems on board.

 

Pilot vessels

Pilot vessels bring pilots on board of large ships that sail coastal waters or river deltas, or which are nearing ports. This means: Responsibility for human lives as well as cargo and ships worth millions of dollars.

So it’s only reasonable that the pilots not only have to be extremely well trained – their ships, too, are subject to stringent requirements as stipulated by the authorities. What’s more, pilot boats are constructed to have a long lifespan: They are on the seas for 35 to 40 years, sailing under rough conditions. Thus, the interior outfitting also has to meet this challenge. For us at R&M, the functionality, aesthetically pleasing design, and longevity of the interior are the cornerstones to our philosophy of quality.

 

SWATH vessels

SWATH stands for Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull, and refers to ships that are relatively robust in heavy swells.

This steadfastness is achieved by the use of a special, innovative ship build: A SWATH vessel features two underwater lifting bodies on which several stabilizing supports are arranged for holding a platform. This structure is derived from semi-submersibles within offshore platform construction.

A SWATH vessel has to be made of a combination of the most lightweight materials if it wants to take advantage of its special design during use. But the lightweight build is not the only thing that is required: Extreme weight management is meant to maintain the design weight with pinpoint accuracy. SWATH vessels are innovative and tricky at the same time. Only one shipyard worldwide is able to handle such construction demands – and R&M is their partner. We’re proud to be able to call ourselves global market leader in the outfitting of SWATH vessels.

 

Research vessels

Like authority vessels, research vessels do not have their own ship category. Depending on their purpose, they are often quite different from one another. However, there are also some similarities: They frequently operate under absolutely rugged conditions, usually for months.

Hulls, engine and supply units, laboratory fit outs and living quarters have to stand up to extreme conditions such as heat and cold, wind and waves in remote marine areas like the polar regions. The laboratory furnishing has to be shielded against vibration, noise and electromagnetic waves. At the same time, the lab has to be able to be converted within a short period of time. Thus, a basic requirement is flexibility, for example by the use of flexible wall rail systems. For the interior outfitter, research vessels are some of the most diverse type of ship.
