The World’s First 3D printed Yacht from Plastic Waste
Searious Business, Wijk Yacht Creation BV and BeteoR BV to Manufacture the World’s First 3D printed Yacht from Plastic Waste.
Together we draw attention to the plight of the world’s ocean, and aspire to make a difference by facilitating change in the beverage and shipping industries. We will do so, by demonstrating the feasibility of producing a yacht from recycled PET bottles.
To speed our ambitions, we reached out to Lay3rs 3D printing company and filament builder Tridea. At the event ‘A Plastic Ocean’ in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, Willemijn Peeters and Leon van der Zanden presented the first 3D printed model from recycled PET, in a fully-packed theater. The response was overwhelming.
