Hullwork – inside vs. outside

Robot Technology

Hull Fairing and inside insulation work often do not play out well together in the building process of a Superyacht. 

The fairing process of a hull, which has remained almost unchanged for 90 years, has often been described by us as not very contemporary, inefficient and labor-intensive (see also: The Advantages of a Filler Map).

In addition to the obvious advantages of automated processing with robot technology, the other advantages are often in very many small details, which, however, can have a great effect.

Let’s take the work on the outside and the work on the inside of a hull, which in the traditional process are usually carried out at the same time or with overlap.

When welding the hooks for fastening the insulation cladding in the interior of the hull, heat is generated which affects the already applied primer and filler on the outside. The heat has an effect on the filler so that it can become porous and must then be reworked in a year or earlier at the latest.
