Why DVZ Services supports Water Revolution

“It’s quite simple: Focusing on sustainability is like looking into the future. It is now up to us to rebalance for that future. For example, the times when the oceans could still forgive us for smaller sins are long gone.⁠

As developers and manufacturers of environmental protection technologies, sustainability accompanies us almost everywhere in our daily activities: ecologically, socially and economically. Water Revolution Foundation offers us the opportunity to get involved in precisely this topic and to advance it, among other things, through the exchange of experience and knowledge within companies and individuals sharing the same goals. Here, the creation of clear standards and the development of the database for sustainable solutions are two indispensable pillars.”

Dykstra Naval Architects brings over 50 years of experience in design, redesign, naval architecture and marine engineering of classic and modern performance yachts and offers preliminary and concept designs for both pleasure and commercially operated yachts.

“Founded in 1969 by Gerard Dykstra, and now led by CEO Thys Nikkels, the team at Dykstra is comprised of passionate sailors actively sailing our own designs and redesigns. Using first hand practical experience combined with in-house developed software to provide expertise in spars, rigs, and structural analysis that is current, tested and tried.

Concept design and Innovation
The combination of sailing experience, skilled engineers and passion for new and sustainable techniques drives Dykstra Naval Architects to realize the most challenging concepts. Great examples are the Dynarig and Aerorig concepts. These ideas can now be used to create new perspectives in yachting and create a new chapter in the yachting history.

Research and Development
To realize these concepts, the engineers use first hand practical experience combined with in-house developed software to provide expertise in spars, rigs, and structural analysis that is current, tested and tried. The designs are modeled and tested in wind tunnels and towing tanks. These results are compared with classical theoretical hydrodynamic and aerodynamic models. To analyze design details CFD can be used. Dykstra Naval Architects is often asked to contribute in other projects to design and research the rigging and sailing plan. Constant research is done for new methods and materials, both by University Interns as by the Dykstra Naval Architects team. A combination that proved to work well to keep everybody in touch with latest technology.

Re-design and Performance optimisation
Dykstra Naval Architects provided the Naval Architecture and re-design for some of the most challenging refits. Great examples are the 2 mast schooner Adela, 3- mast schooner Adix, JK7 Velsheda, JK3 Shamrock V, J5 Ranger and JK4 Endeavour, SY Athena, Meteor and many others.”
