Modern Composite Materials

May 26, 2017

Many of the R/P team members are involved in their respective areas of expertise through local engineering communities and professional societies. Recently, R/P composite structures engineer Adrian Sawyer, SAMPE member since 2012, shared some of our work with his colleagues in the Southern California composites industry. An incredible testament to the strengths of modern composite materials, the recently-launched Baltic 130 Custom is made up of over 4 football fields worth of carbon fiber, but its structural weight is still less than 20% of the yacht’s full displacement.
