Our client had a vision: to produce a vacation resort made from many small floating homes. Forget a cabin on the beach. Imagine traveling past the beach! Take your small dingy out to enjoy solitude in the serene beauty of a Caribbean bay. All completely sustainable, with rain water harvesting, solar energy, and flush accommodations inside. The perfect getaway for the family.
Everyone else thought this was too risky. DMS worked with our Client to go from risky idea to safe design. We ensured basic safety and allowed our Client the freedom to experiment with ship systems like the rainwater harvesting and solar energy. DMS focused on the structures and vessel stability. We also cooperated with the interior designer to work our structure around the interior layout. In the end, we created a unique and safe design that allowed our Client the freedom to move to the next step.
DMS also worked closely with our Client to address several practical concerns:
These practical features made for a feasible design and a more profitable business plan.
Scantlings is a general term for sizing all the components of your hull structure. They require a combination of regulatory finesse and physics knowledge to optimize your hull.
When extreme weather strikes, vessel stability is the safety system that protects you. Keep your crew safe.
Design is the synthesis of engineering to create business advantages for the future.
