TURKEY, Bodrum. Esenyacht has announced that the investment in its joinery and furniture division, which was designed to increase the shipyard’s capabilities and range of services, is now complete. Headed up by Ferhat Kaya, the strength of its workshop relies on its workforce of 50 craftsmen and the combination of modern technology and old-fashioned construction methods.
“We are dedicated to delivering international standard projects to our clients with a view to gaining total customer satisfaction,” explains founder of the shipyard, Kadir Esen.
The investment made by Esenyacht has led to the purchase of various machinery including a four-axis CNC milling machine, a computer controlled calibration machine, a range of heat and humidity controlled ovens and climate-controlled storage, which support traditional methods of cabinet making, joinery and machining, marquetry, inlaying and carving. This gives the yard the capability to build every element of a yacht's hull, superstructure and interior made or constructed from wood.
Esenyacht has revealed that the workshop is currently working on Troy, a 50m sailing sloop designed by Tim Saunders Yacht Design in collaboration with its in-house design team. The development of its workshop is in keeping with the shipyard’s boat building ethos, which puts an emphasis on the importance of skilled craftsmen in the construction of its vessels.
The investment has given Esenyacht a greater degree of control over critical elements such as quality control and time delivery, which in turn helps to ensure that projects are delivered on schedule and to specification.
