Bolidt Synthetic Products & Systems says it has booked orders for its decking products covering newbuildings for some of the highest profile cruise ship operators in the industry that include vessel deliveries envisaged in five years’ time.

Among others, Bolideck® products have been specified by Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), Royal Caribbean International (RCI), Viking River Cruises and TUI Cruises, whose 2014-2015 deliveries take in some of the industry’s most significant ships.   

Norwegian Getaway contract 
Earlier this year, the 324m long, 4,000-passenger Norwegian Getaway made its maiden voyage to the Caribbean. Continuing a long track record of cooperation with both NCL and shipbuilder Meyer Werft, Bolidt installed nearly 17,000m2 of decking on the colorful and visually striking vessel, covering indoor and outdoor areas. Products supplied included the low maintenance Bolideck® Future Teak, the slip-resistant material which also offers cruise operators an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional teak.

Jacco van Overbeek, Bolidt Director Maritime Division, Bolidt says: “We are delighted that we have secured the backing of so many high quality cruise ship operators, onboard vessels which have very different ambiences. This shows that we deliver not only very flexible decking systems that can be used within many different design frameworks, but also that we meet requirements in terms of cost, ease of maintenance and environmental protection.”
