The first cut of the Vaan R4-01 occurred this week at www.snijtechniek-brabant.nl. The first post consumer scrap recycled aluminium sheet by www.hydro.com is cut using a CNC milling machine.
I hope other boat builders will take a close look at their products and business and start rejecting the stuff that is harmful. For every logical choice of the past, there is a new alternative that is in line with the future. Our common future that is. Let’s do this together. This isn’t rocket science. Let’s Sail the Planet.
We are happy to announce the Vaan R4 has been awarded the A’Design Award in the category Yacht Design! The R4 was voted on by a professional jury as one of only seven winners in this category of this prestigious global design award.
