Leading panel mounting system designer and manufacturer, Fastmount, has signed its first distributor in Russia, New Furniture Technologies Ltd.
With offices in St Petersburg and Moscow, New Furniture Technologies will service Fastmount’s growing customer base in the marine and architectural industries.
New Furniture Technologies has successfully developed the furniture market of Russia since 1996, supplying components necessary for the production of furniture and creation of interiors, whilst also working closely with shipbuilding, railway and car manufacturers.
“We believe we will be able to offer our customers a unique solution with Fastmount, as there is nothing like it currently on the market,” comments Avdokhin Vladimir, Head of Sales at New Furniture Technologies. “There is particularly a demand for fastening systems for metal honeycomb, stone veneer and non-combustible panels, which Fastmount addresses.”

The 85 metre Oceanco built motor
yacht Vibrant Curiosity dry-docked with
Babcock in October 2016 for underwater
hull repairs and preservation, and for
inspection of underwater equipment
including; propeller shaft and rudders;
hull anodes; anchor chains and lockers.
To remove any risk of contaminating the
yacht’s topsides and superstructure whilst
spraying the required Intersleek 1100SR
antifoul coating system, the underwater
area was encapsulated using scaffold
and shrink-wrap. The encapsulation, hull
repairs and coating preparation and
application was completed within a 29
day dry-dock period.

One of the super-yacht projects was
for MID to design a cradle system for
a 600 tonne 62m sailing yacht to be
hauled on a New Zealand slipway.
The unique challenge was to design a
cradle that could allow the yacht to be
jacked 1.5m in the air after the yacht
was hauled out of the water. This was
to allow for removal of the yacht’s
lifting centreboard keel which, in itself,
was a 60 tonne, 10m x 3m blade.
A cradle structure was designed,
with shaped beams on moving legs
contained within fixed uprights, and a
jacking structure provided for hydraulic
jacks. The shaped beams were fitted
to the hull shape using a laser scan of
the hull (from an earlier haul out). The
vessel was successfully jacked (by an
Auckland specialist rigging contractor)
using 14 synchronised single acting
jacks. MID also provided the removal
design for the keel.
Keel removal is underway as we write.

In August 2016 the New Zealand Superyacht Group (NZSG) independently created a survey on the Superyachts that visited New Zealand since and including the 2013/14 season (April 2013- June 2016). The goal of the survey was to ascertain the net economic impact to New Zealand over the 3 seasons, for the use of the NZSG Members.
For the purposes of this report a Superyacht was defined as being of 30-metres and above which we feel is the worldwide industry standard.
NZSG have worked with NZ Customs to change the way data is collected all inwards and outward reporting of Superyachts 30-metres and above started 1st April, 2016. New Zealand has never had a mandatory official data collection showing vessel movements, and relied only on contractors providing information.
Thanks to members of the NZSG we will now shortly have official government data referring to all visiting Superyachts,
and to new construction projects undertaken in New Zealand post launch and under the new owner.
Net economic impact is the direct contribution from purchase of New Zealand goods and services, employment and profits (after tax) by yachts, their owners and crew during their time in New Zealand. It excludes purchase of imported goods and services.
We believe that these figures show that visiting Superyacht represent approximately $163.68m net economic impact to Auckland over the 3 seasons.

Great article on a great New Zealand company - Yachting Developments Homepage
As the only New Zealand yard with a new build superyacht underway there is no doubt that Yachting Developments, owned and run by the Cook family, is one of the country’s best success stories. Having recently delivered the 33.83 metre Germán Frers designed sloop, Cygnus Montanus, in July 2016, the yard team is currently hard at work on a 38.7 metre Michael Peters sportsfisher, Hull YD 1015, due for delivery in 2017. Current refit projects include the restoration of Windhaven, built in 1948 and considered by many as New Zealand’s first luxury yacht. “Enquiries are strong and we are busy,” says Ian Cook, Managing Director at Yachting Developments.
Highlighted Ian Cooks final comments, we from NZSG couldn't agree more with you Ian.
New Zealand has been proactive about promoting the country to yachts in recent years but Cook believes that yacht building is so personal that in many cases the build country takes a back seat to the relationship between yard and owner. “It shouldn’t be about a country, the relationships are most important, not where you are and what you cost,” he says. “What we do is very personal and the importance of good synergy between yard and owner can’t be underestimated. It’s a life long relationship.” Getting the balance right and staying true to family values and a commitment to quality is at the heart of every project the yard takes on. “You never want to think you’re being chosen because you’re the most competitive,” he says. “You want to be chosen because the owner relationship is right, everyone’s paying a fair price and you are delivering a quality item. It’s as simple as that.”

As the global leader in panel mounting systems, Fastmount has already made it easier
to remove and replace panels. Now it has found a way to do the same with soft
furnishings with the release of the TC-06 clip set from the Textile Range.
Designed and manufactured in New Zealand, the Textile Range was created in response
to demand for a purpose built solution for mounting interior and exterior furnishings on
superyachts. The TC-06 is the first clip set released in the range.
Exterior cushions on superyachts have it hard – they are subject to wind, storms, salt
and sun. Add to that their constant removal and replacement according to cleaning
schedules, owner arrival and departure and protection, it becomes a time-consuming
task for the crew as they battle with push studs, hook and loop strips, or rope tracks.
When the cushions are set out again, they need to be
checked for perfect placement, readjusted and
replaced. At high speeds they can lift, and when
owners sit on them they can slide and distort.
The TC-06 has been designed with these conditions in
mind, purpose built for day bed mattresses, seat
cushions, back rests and bases. With the use of TC-06
clips, the furnishing can be locked into place securely,
and removed rapidly with the click of a button.
The result is perfect alignment, every time. FULL RANGE HERE
