Yachts / Marine Applications


Stainless steel for the boat

Just over a hundred years ago, the materials most commonly used "on board" in boat, ship, yacht and other marine construction were wood and brass.

Nowadays, steel, aluminium and stainless steel are mostly used. This is very often for technical and practical reasons, such as durability, the high number of possible uses, weldability and, as with stainless steel in particular, corrosion resistance.

But it is not only its rost resistant attributes that make stainless steel a material in demand for boats.

Thus, stainless steel is found more and more frequently in the field of boat-, ship- and yacht equipment as a material for anchor bags, fascia boards, fresh water tanks, boat fittings, railings, panelling, handrails, handholds, push buttons, swim ladders, tubes, window and door profiles, stair stringers and steps, lights, furniture, lettering and countless other decorative applications.

For this, its aesthetic quality and the wide range of surface finishing options are highly appreciated by naval architects, designers and owners.

Stainless steel in yacht building

mirrorINOX, as a leading expert in the surface treatment of stainless steel and other metals, is the specialist company and contact when it comes to consulting and the requirements in areas of boat- and yachts-building, equipment and accessories where stainless steel can be applied.

mirrorINOX is receiving constantly enquiries from naval architects, designers and shipyards who plan, design and build cruise ships as well as mega yachts, super yachts and smaller crafts like motor- or sailing-boats.

The steadily increasing number of metalworking companies that manufacture sub-assemblies for the aforementioned industry or produce products for them and come to mirrorINOX do show us, that we are first choice in terms of the quality and innovativeness of the range of our stainless steel surfaces.

The segment of mirror-polished stainless steel surfaces is just one example of many:

In recent years, the product Marine Mirror No. 9 produced by mirrorINOX has established itself with many manufacturers and suppliers from the boat, yacht, boat equipment and accessories sectors in terms of the highest quality and has redefined the standard.

mirrorINOX produces its surfaces for the entire marine industry, for applications in and on leisure sailing or motor boats of all models up to the very largest cruise ship and the most prestigious mega-yacht.

Stainless steel boat fittings: small parts, larger parts and lettering

Our surfaces are correspondingly versatile for the large field of equipment, accessories and construction for boats, ships and yachts.

mirrorINOX: Ideal materials for shipbuilding and more

At present, we mainly manufacture products made of grade AISI 304 and AISI 316 stainless steel for ship and yacht building, but we are also able to treat and process other alloys such as duplex stainless steel, which are even more corrosion-resistant to salt water and other stresses.

mirrorINOX offers its customers an almost unlimited range of refined metal surfaces, both for the marine sector and in many other areas of architecture and industry as well.
