Rockport Marine - Design for Restoration
Classic yacht restoration is an audacious endeavor. The designer is called upon to serve as historian, archivist, artist and engineer. Each successful classic yacht restoration requires reseatch, documentation and a seamless transition of new design elements into the original design.
Maine Maritime Museum takes you behind the scenes at Rockport Marine, where they've mastered class yacht restoration. The process begins with 3D laser measurement of the vessel to quantify the dedegree the vessel differs from her original condition. Invariably designers incorporate reconfigured accommodations, modern electrical/mechanical systems and improvements to vessel performance into the restorations while maintaining the heart and aesthetics of the original. Rockport Marine restorations demand curiosity, diligence and willingness to pursue the last degree of detail.
Participants will meet at Rockport Marine at 1pm for the tour.
Maine Maritime Museum offers a myriad of opportunities to explore Maine’s maritime heritage and culture and to experience the mystique of Maine.
