How it started…
The end of 2001 finds the company presenting her first finished completed model, SKIPPER 780 open, a boat that became a legend for the quality of materials, her floating and ergonomic arrangement of the deck.
BSK marine – since its foundation – has achieved a continuous and rapid progress and has created a remarkable history which makes Skipper boats synonymous to quality and seaworthiness
Pavlos’ dream of the perfect boat has always driven us – throughout our history. And we get closer to achieving it every day with every concept, every development and every model. Along the way, we follow a plan, an ideal that unites us all. We refer to it simply as the Skipper Principle. The primary, fundamental principle is to always get the most out of everything.
But what makes a boat perfect for us.
A perfect boat is not necessarily the fastest boat, but Skippers have the highest top speed in all their models, as well as having incredible handling and stability.
A perfect boat is not necessarily a quality boat, but Skippers have the highest quality materials & accessories, installed in the most detailed way.
A perfect boat is not necessarily a boat that looks beautiful but Skippers are perfectly designed with design awards
( Red dot design award 2016: honorable mention for Skipper NC100s ).
Research & Development.
Advanced design, engineering and technology have all played an important part in Skipper boats’ success. The Research and Development department of BSK Marine is located in house. R&D department’s fields of work are related to the overall research and design of new models as well their accessories. This department is also responsible for the construction of the prototypes of models, their testing, as well as their improvement (of new or existing models).
The way we do it:
When starting the research and development of a boat, first of all, her hull is designed. Then, she is studied hydro statically on a computer (CFD) Computational Fluid Dynamics, while a similar procedure takes place with a scale model in a towing tank. The final test which defines the design of the hull is conducted in a real scale with a prototype vessel at sea. Then the completed projects of different decks for each hull, as well as accessories ( wallpapers, stainless steel parts, etc.) are completed. Finally, the decks’ plans are completed for each hull, and also those of her equipment (tanks, upholsterers, stainless steel parts etc)
Designing by Alexandros Stavroulakis
Designing a Skipper Boat is a new challenge for him every time.
A perfect boat is derived from a careful project which is studied in every detail before the construction. He sets the high standards from the designing procedure to the final boat and makes Skipper boats able to cover the needs of the most demanding users.
Having studied naval architecture and industrial design and also being working in the boat industry from an early age, he knows each detail and every step of the boat construction from the inside to the outside and has the ability to make a supreme design from inside out.
Designing the construction guidelines to make people from each specialty, working together in a harmonic way ensures to ensure an ultra-high quality construction meeting the beautiful design, all results in a premium boat.
Manufacturing of Skipper boats is housed in BSK Marine’s facilities, designed to meet the needs of vessel construction. The controlled system of temperature and humidity, the ultra-modern ventilation system and the trailer trucks are some of the special characteristics that make Skipper’s construction more even.
To ensure quality at all stages of production all boats meet the requirements of ISO 9001. Every Skipper from start till sea is manufactured according to its construction manual made from R&D department to increase the similar high quality to all boats.
10 years warranty with potential extension to lifetime on all fiberglass parts of vessels. This capability is ensured by specially selected vinyl ester resin in combination with the number and thickness of layers for each part of the vessel. For proper selection of the number and the thickness of layers, there is a similar study strain in each area in the most extreme conditions of riding.
Furthermore, the quality of the vinyl ester provides elasticity and strength in order to avoid fractures and osmosis.
5 years on inflatable collars. BSK Marine constructs inflatable collars from orca pennel & flipo fabrics as the highest quality fabrics with 5 years warranty. The installation of collars is made with the same material by cold gluing with the same warranty.
5 years on electrical – wiring system. This system makes a Skipper Boat alive. It has to be very sophisticated built by top quality materials from top Brand.
BSK Marine is a company that has a few years in vessel constructing but her rapid progress creates a remarkable history and makes Skipper boats synonymous to quality and seaworthy
