A dream come true
Customized ribs in marine aluminum
In BAYAMO brand, our family love for the sea meets the investment in research of our company – CAR-MET Srl in Casarsa della Delizia (Pordenone) – which has been producing components and metal structures for industrial installations since 1978.
Bayamo produces single-hull inflatable boats entirely in 5083 marine aluminum. It is not a mass production, but a customized production, born from an artisan heart. In fact, each rib is made ad hoc, with a meticulous quality control the materials and each different processing step, from structure to finishes.
For the design of our Heron 7.6 we have relied on engineer Alessandro Chessa, working in Akesdesign studio and expert in projecting and designing aluminum boats and inflatable boats.
Why do we prefer aluminum to fiberglass?
- — It is lighter – 30% less than an equivalent fiberglass structure –, thus the inflatable boat is less energy-consuming and more performing.
- — Robust and durable, it needs a minimal maintenance.
- — It can be processed in any shape that can be developed from sheet metal and ensures maximum customization at more convenient conditions (because constructing the mold is not necessary, thus avoiding this expensive initial investment).
- — It is environmentally friendly, because it is 100% recyclable.
And why “Bayamo”?
Because it’s a multiform word: it’s the name of a storm that wipe out the South coast of Cuba, but it is also a figure of the Cuban Salsa. In short, a synthesis of disruptive power and harmony. Like our ribs.
