Scott Bader’s Crestapol 1261 Resin in Galeon 640 Fly Yacht

July 02 2018

The fly bridge of Galeon’s new 640 FLY yacht superstructure would typically be produced using standard resin with glass fiber and supported by metal pillar structures at the rear of the boat. The engineering team from Galeon Composite Engineering Research and Development Department performed structural design using Scott Bader’s Crestapol 1261 urethane acrylate resin, with a combination of multiaxial and unidirectional carbon fiber from METYX Composites. The combination of the engineering and the material choice has enabled Galeon to significantly increase the stiffness and reduce the weight of this structure eliminating the need for additional support pillars at the rear of the boat.

Previously, Galeon used carbon fiber material for secondary structural elements across their range of yachts. After seeing the exceptional weight saving Crestapol resins could bring, whilst maintaining high strength, Galeon now uses Crestapol 1260 and 1261 in their new range of yachts.
