Yachting Consult Releases New MasterSHIP 200
The software side of the newest MasterSHIP version has now been released.
MasterSHIP 2000 contains many improvements and a new module, Surface Tools, for the creation of developable and double-curved surfaces. A large number of templates has been added to the Parametrics module and it is now even possible for customers to define their own templates.
The Expand-02 module has been improved with a new algorithm that allows more precise and flexible expansion of double-curved surfaces on hulls and superstructures. The Parts Processor now automatically and interactively closes part contours. Use of the renewed NC-Preprocessor allows faster determination of the cutting order of the parts and the in-lead direction of the burner.
MasterSHIP CAD/CAM software is used by shipyards, designers and engineering companies to turn the design of ships into production information.
MasterSHIP operates in combination with AutoCAD and is the first shipbuilding software to support the new AutoCAD version, AutoCAD 2000.

Total service concept for shipyards Yachting Consult Engineering now offers a total service concept. Besides from the typical CAD/CAM work, all logistic handling can be obtained as an integral part of their services. This includes the purchase of the steel or aluminum, cutting, shaping, bending and subsequent delivery to the yard. This "one stop shopping" is a very attractive option for yards, enabling them to meet the extremely short delivery times, which seems to be a common trend in shipbuilding lately.
Yachting Consult Engineering is active in both shipbuilding and yachtbuilding markets. In addition to recent work for megayacht builders, several projects in the shipbuilding market have been realized, such as a kit for a 141 ft.
(43 m) Crew Supply vessel (Stan Tender 4300) for Damen Shipyards; a kit for a 194 ft. (59 m) car ferry for a German yard; and 5 kits for a 98 ft. (30 m)-catamaran ferry (River Runner 150). These kits were delivered to aluminum specialist Bayards, who supplied the hulls to Damen Shipyards. The delivery to Bayards was a complete package, containing all parts and profiles. The ferries are used for public transport in The Netherlands, and were built by Damen under license to NQEA from Australia.
The newest project is a 112 ft. (34 m) research vessel for Scheepswerf Visser from Den Helder in the Netherlands.
