THE BEST WAY
HOW WE PRODUCE THE BEST SHIPS
From concept to finished ship
It is important to us that you are involved in the entire process: from design to delivery. Therefore, you are always welcome to visit us in the production hall.
CLARIFICATION OF NEEDS
Needs and expectations clarified in a start-up meeting
Skitse udarbejdes, gennemgås og tilrettes sammen med dig
The outline of your dream ship is approved
Carpenters, smiths and shipbuilders start production of your ship
Your ship is launched and delivered
We manufacture robust, durable and weather-resistant vessels which meet all regulatory requirements for safety and for sound and fire insulation, etc.
A strong alternative
Fibreglass is a strong and malleable material: so malleable, we can perform design details and so strong, we can offer an ice warranty. We use both traditional fibreglass mats and multi-axial combination mats, which have a significantly higher fibreglass content in the finished laminate. An incredibly strong alternative to steel and aluminium.
5 good reasons to choose a fibreglass vessel
Besides fibreglass’ strength, durability and flexibility during the design phase, there are numerous benefits to operating a fibreglass vessel – and you get to enjoy those.
Fibreglass is a light material, which means it can reduce your vessel’s fuel consumption
Ships made from fibreglass-reinforced polyester require less ongoing maintenance than metal ships
BIGGER LOAD-BEARING CAPACITY
A lighter ship allows you to load more
Fibreglass lasts for generations and can be repaired without weakening integrity
There is no corrosion in ships built from fibreglass-reinforced polyester
We have produced ships for over 50 years
In 1965, wheelwright Egon Bredgaard founds a small shipyard in Nysted. The yard produces small dinghies and in the 60s and 70s, the highly reliable “Nysted Dinghy”, also called the “Bredgaard Dinghy”, enters the world. As the company grows and starts to build larger vessels, it is moved to larger premises and, most recently, to Rødbyhavn, where we now produce professional commercial vessels.
Using good craftsmanship and modern methods
Since the shipyard’s founding, we have worked with hand-laid fibreglass, and we are still building ships based on the old craft. In combination with the original craft, we have specialised in vacuum moulding, which reduces styrene vapour emission by more than 90%. This protects the environment and creates a better working environment for our employees. In addition, vacuum moulding has the great advantage of increasing the glass percentage of our products – and the mechanical strength of the laminate becomes higher.
We choose materials based on
our experience and our heart
It is important to us that your ship is produced using the best, strongest and most durable materials. Material selection and careful craftsmanship mean that your ship has a long life and a high resale value. In addition to the strength and durability of the materials, it is important to us that the materials we choose are environmentally sustainable to the greatest extent possible.
We choose metals wisely
Even when you choose a fibreglass ship, there are still parts of the ship where we use metal. We use acid-proof stainless steel for screws and rudder shafts, stern rails and rails on top of the bulwark, among other things. All metals are seawater resistant.
We still build parts of your ship from wood
We use wood of the best quality and construct fittings in the type of wood you request.
Security and rescue equipment
A Bredgaard boat is always delivered with modern safety and rescue equipment in accordance with current regulations for the specific vessel. All safety and rescue equipment is wheel (CE) labelled.
Bredgaard Boats is a recognised shipyard in Scandinavia and has been authorised to perform fibreglass production by:
