The LEHVOSS Group and Livrea Yacht to build the World’s First 3D Printed Sailboat

March 19 2018

The LEHVOSS Group, (of which LEHVOSS North America is a member) and its parent company Lehmann&Voss&Co of Hamburg, Germany, are partnering with Italian boat builder, Livrea Yacht, to build the world’s first 3D printed sailboat. Since work began on the design in 2014, LEHVOSS Group has supported the process development and engineered its LUVOCOM 3F customized 3D printing materials specifically for the application.

The innovative yacht, called the Mini 650, is the ambitious project of two Italian boat builders, Francesco Belvisi and Daniele Cevola. They are building it for the 2019 solo transatlantic yacht race, called the Mini-Transat, which starts in France and ends in Brazil. The customized 3D printing materials engineered and supplied by LEHVOSS Group are based on high performance thermoplastic polymers, such as PEEK.

Concurrent with their work of designing and building the Mini 650, Belvisi and Cevola have driven the development of a dedicated direct extrusion 3D printing technology with their company, OCORE, which is providing the required quality of parts for the yacht.
