New colors for decking


Holland-based Bolidt has introduced a new series of decking colors in its Future Teak range to address the yachting market’s desire for alternatives to hardwood.

Bolidt’s range of products has been fitted throughout the cruise industry but not so much on yachts, whose owners have opted for traditional teak decking.

Bolideck Future Teak weighs less and costs less than real wood.

“Designers and owners want the latest innovation in every other area but when it comes to the decking, they have often stuck with tradition in specifying teak,” said Jacco van Overbeek, director of  Bolidt’s shipping division. “Bolidt can produce any color required. At this moment, we have 10 new colors for reference, but we want to emphasize that the only thing limiting Bolideck Future Teak color selection will be the imagination.”

Bolidt invited representatives from builders’ yards and designers to experience the product at the recent Superyacht Design Week in London. The feedback was enthusiastic, according to Michel van der Spek, Bolidt manager of marketing and communication.

“Bolidt is increasingly being seen as a partner for designers, as our innovative products stimulate the architects to be more creative with their new yacht projects,” he said.

Bolidt has already worked with Camper & Nicholson, Feadship, Lürssen and Royal Huisman. Its list of megayacht references includes the 99m M/Y Madame Gu designed by London-based Andrew Winch and delivered from Feadship this year, the 82m M/Y Graceful designed by H2 Yacht Design and delivered from Blohm and Voss this year, and the Espen Oeino-designed 71m M/Y Skat delivered from Lurssen.
