Moscow Shipyard requested Vripack Naval Architects to design and engineer a 45m Displacement Motor Yacht capable of both, unencumbered sailing on the ocean as well as leisure sailing on Russian canals and lakes. Vripack Naval Architects did the interior and exterior design, and the structural and outfitting design, as well as the mechanical and marine engineering.

The entire structure, hull and superstructure, were modelled in ShipConstructor based on the classification drawings. Specific production requirements, due to Moscow Shipyard’s practises and their well laid out machine park, were fully implemented. Due to the production workflow, shop floor space and crane capabilities, the hull and superstructure were split into modules and intermediate assemblies. This allowed the yard personnel to work on multiple modules at the same time, utilizing a large amount of floor space and efficient distribution of their welders and fitters.

The 3D structure provided the necessary background for the routing of piping and ducting using ShipConstructor’s Pipe module. Having the piping and structural design processes run very close to each other made structural optimisations for pipe routing easy to do and made penetrations and lightening holes for free passage for piping and ducts easy to establish.

The piping and machinery foundations were also incorporated and further integrated with the hull structure.
