  • The 59th edition of the Genoa Boat Show (19 - 24 September 2019) is in piazzale Kennedy (16129 Genoa, Italy)

Amer Yachts is heading for a new challenge in collaboration with GS4C. Amer Yachts is betting on the innovative mineral fiber FILAVA® for the next generation of Superyachts to make them sustainable and recyclable, Cradle to Cradle. To address the fiberglass End of Life recycling issue, Amer Yachts choose to abandon Glass fiber and adopt instead the volcanic fiber FILAVA®, obtained from enriched basalt through a proprietary process. FILAVA® is completely recyclable into new virgin fiber at End of Life. ENEA and RINA are already working on the certification process for the new composite material and the shipyard signed a collaboration agreement with GS4C.
