The Mets in Amsterdam, which this year will be held between 13 and 16 November, is easily the best-known boat show for nautical accessories in the world as well as an important opportunity for Besenzoni which, every year, will showcase its latest accessories designed for all types of yachts and boats, from small and medium yachts, to super yachts as well as commercial boats.
In particular, the Sarnico-based (BG, Italy) company will have two stands, one within the Italian Pavillon (01.565), and the other one, with the UNICA brand, in the SuperYacht Pavillon (10.708).
Both stands will display a wide range of products, all highly personalised and with unique touches, such as the new remote-controlled external telescopic gangway facilitating both the operation of the gangway as well as the tender launch function. This is an extremely versatile accessory designed to meet the typical operational requirements of a variety of different boat types. The stainless steel framework is both lightweight and sturdy and is available in both gloss and matt finish. One of its main features is the new walkway in plexiglass with teak finishes.
All gangways are equipped with an infra-red or radio-wave remote control.
We will exhibit for the first time our new folding Sun-roof with its sophisticated, innovative structure, which uses the same concept as a soft-top by using reduced space, when open, but with the characteristics of a hard-top as regards external insulation. The classic hard-top, when open, requires space in which to slide the cover in, while our new sun-roof, thanks to its unique “folding” mechanism does not exceed the size of its own perimeter. The item on display, in particular, has a glass top with a UV-ray protective coating. The folding top can be made to size so it can easily be adapted to any boat type.
The Besenzoni stand for Unica, which will showcase products designed for super yachts, will feature the SP 602, a “shiny” ladder – with led lights underneath the perimeter and also underneath each step – combined with a gangway function. With its stainless steel structure, in either gloss or mirror finish, and self-levelling steps in teak and plexiglass or glass, this ladder can be adjusted to size on the first access step/platform, therefore making it suitable for a variety of bespoke solutions.
Besenzoni, which in the past four years has seen a steady increase in turnover, is looking to expand in every part of the market, by adopting a growth strategy which leverages the constant development of more and more personalised products and solutions.
The operational flexibility that the company has maintained over the years means that today it is also able to offer, along with its standard items, a wide range of bespoke products based on the specifications of architects, designers, and project managers which are tailor-made to meet a variety of different requirements for the most demanding customers.
