System, Equipment and Machinery Testing

Sea trials and yacht testing in La Spezia and Genoa. Yacht equipment and machinery testing in Viareggio, Carrara, Livorno. Sea trials, System and yacht equipment testing in Liguria and Tuscany.

Equipment tests are necessary during the evaluation of a new boat or yacht, or on delivery following a repair, to ensure the correct functionality of equipment.

Inspections can be divided into the following areas:

  • Hull, upper structure and decks
  • Cathodic protection (anodes)
  • External equipment
  • Shore equipment and mooring rigging
  • Windows, doors and hatches
  • Handrails, stanchions and lifelines
  • Crane and boarding ladders
  • Masts, spars and rigging
  • Sails
  • Electrical machinery and installations
  • Diesel fuel plant
  • Bilge and fire-fighting systems
  • Axles and rudders
  • Stabilizer fins
  • Freshwater system
  • WC
  • Life-saving equipment
  • Seawater fire extinguishing system
  • Air conditioning system
  • Grey water and black water system
  • Sewage treatment plant
  • Bilge separator plant
  • Water Makers
  • Hot water system
  • Hydraulic systems (rudder, davits, hatches, doors, retractable keel)
  • Anchor winch
  • Capstains
  • Diesel fuel purifier
  • Sailing yacht equipment
  • Diesel generators
  • Auxiliary equipment

Sea trials

Sea trials for yachts are a crucial step in the process of verifying a vessel’s performance and safety. These tests, conducted under real-world conditions, involve several key aspects. Initially, the propulsion systems, including engines, propellers and the sail system, are evaluated to ensure efficient and reliable operation. Maneuverability is a critical element, with tests of turning, crash stops, acceleration and braking to assess the vessel’s response to maneuvers.
Stability is carefully monitored, considering the effect of waves and weather conditions on seakeeping.

During sea trials, tests are performed on electronic navigation systems, on-board instrumentation and connectivity to ensure proper functioning and secure communications.

Detailed checks are carried out on safety systems, such as fire-fighting equipment and life-saving equipment, to confirm compliance with regulations. Hydraulic systems are tested to ensure proper functioning of systems such as winches and hydraulic steering gears.

These tests allow any defects or anomalies to be identified and corrected, ensuring that the yacht meets the required safety and performance standards. They also help optimize the vessel’s operational efficiency and handling.

The importance of testing

The testing of a yacht is essential to ensure the safety and efficiency of the vessel. During the testing process, various tests are performed to verify structural integrity, proper functioning of propulsion systems, and compliance with safety regulations.
The main benefits of testing, systems testing and sea trials are:

Only those who build know where they can hide the most hidden defects.
