3D Laser scanning represents a significant advancement in the yacht building industry, revolutionizing processes and enhancing outcomes for various stakeholders. From initial planning through construction to interior furnishing, laser scanning stands as a reliable solution when precision is paramount.
Scanphase collaborates closely with naval companies and field specialists, offering top-tier services to shipping companies across numerous European ports (Portugal, France, Italy, Spain, Malta, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, ...) and Spanish ports (Valencia, Algeciras, Barcelona, Las Palmas, Bilbao, Santander, Tarragona, El Ferrol, Cartagena, Avilés ...), extending its reach to North Africa.
3D Laser scanning is profoundly transforming the yacht building industry, enhancing both quality and efficiency across a spectrum of stakeholders. Whether in the stages of planning, construction, or furnishing, laser scanning offers a dependable solution when precision is paramount.
Ships, due to their nature, present a challenge for transportation to scanning sites, often incurring significant costs. Our 3D engineers overcome this challenge by setting up equipment on-site, adeptly moving between various ship areas, and seamlessly integrating scans to construct highly accurate 3D interior layouts. When combined with existing external ship designs, this approach results in a cohesive and comprehensive representation. The inclusion of colorized 3D point cloud scans and panoramic images provides perspectives on yacht data that were previously unattainable. It's crucial to note that a 3D scan serves as the initial phase of the Computer-Aided Design (CAD) journey.
The paramount advantage of employing 3D laser scanning for yachts prior to a refit lies in the precise data it provides during the redesign phase. This ensures that all design components will seamlessly translate into the production phase. Moreover, it allows for decentralized work allocation, avoiding the limitations of on-site work with confined space and resources. The applications of 3D laser scanning span a wide range, encompassing steelworks, railings, machinery spaces, interior areas, furniture, ceiling panels, windscreens, and virtually any yacht component.
Yacht 3D Laser scanning for retrofit - Point Cloud
In the yacht building industry, the utilization of a 3D laser scanner is distinctive and invaluable. Detailed ship design is paramount, particularly for creating comprehensive interior 3D drawings. Our 3D laser scanner excels in mapping out the ship with millimeter precision, providing an optimal foundation for crafting intricate interior designs.
Yacht laser scanning for fast and accurate retrofit
3D Yacht Laser scanning all surfaces
3D Laser scanning is a highly specialized task demanding meticulous setup to achieve precise and accurate results. Our equipment is portable, enabling scans to be conducted at the boat's location. However, a significant portion of the work occurs in the office post-scan. Post-processing is a crucial step in obtaining a highly accurate image and necessitates the expertise of a professional.
Scanphase utilizes long-range Faro Focus scanners, capable of achieving remarkable accuracy down to 1mm from distances of up to 330m. The Faro Focus scanner impressively measures nearly a million points every second.
When a boat is undergoing maintenance out of the water, it is not generating revenue. This underscores the importance of a swift turnaround. In scenarios where hull measurements are required for providing drawings to a naval architect, 3D laser scanning can efficiently and promptly accomplish the task, minimizing additional downtime.

3D Laser Scanning / Hull scanning
Scanphase (3D laser scanning / CAD modeling) capture and deliver, very quickly, the complex geometries and shapes of boat hulls.
Specifically, 3D Laser Scanning can be performed for the definition of possible deflections of the hull as also to inspect every stage of the erection process for deviations from the design. Also, 3D Laser Scanner can survey complex surfaces as also unapproachable and destroyed areas for claiming and redesign. The great point sampling with 1.000.000 points per second can ensure the detailed and quick stay on the field. Any type of ship, from a sailing boat to a tanker and bulk carrier, in any place and in any time, can be surveyed.
The final unified and dense point cloud is the proper initial spatial information for the extraction of any kind of deliverables from naval lines (waterlines, buttocks and sections) to a 3D reconstructed ship geometry (modeling) in any compatible CAD format.
Scanning ship hull for major modification:
Capturing of complex and detailed surfaces.
Extraction of all possible geometrical information (dimensions, angles).
Faster repair times.
As built compatible data for CAD softwares for any naval designing department - office.
Accuracy with the true ship geometries.
Direct comparison with design plans.
Minimization of construction delays

3D laser scanning applications in the realm of yacht boats
Complex Surface Capturing: 3D scanning swiftly and accurately captures the intricate surfaces and measurements of boats. Traditional methods would take weeks to achieve similar precision. This reliable data significantly simplifies boat refits and repairs.
Precise Measurements for Bespoke Parts: Utilizing 3D scans for refits and repairs allows for precise measurements of the existing space. When ordering bespoke parts and fittings, you can ensure they will fit perfectly the first time.
Simulating Design Performance: Scanning the hull of a yacht enables designers to simulate the design's performance in water, providing crucial insights for racing yacht designers.
Blueprints for Old Boats: Many old boats lack accurate drawings, essential for refits, repairs, and insurance. A 3D scan provides a detailed blueprint of the boat's actual condition, aiding in necessary modifications.
Preserving Historical Vessels: 3D scans are invaluable for recording data on historic vessels. This non-contact method allows historians to create precise blueprints, enabling the generation of 3D printed models for preservation and research.
