Dassault Systèmes announced that Baltic Yachts selected CATIA Marine solutions to create better boats, faster and more efficiently. Founded in 1973, Baltic Yachts is globally known for its pioneering custom yachts combining innovative materials and technologies with high quality craftsmanship.
With many of its projects increasing in size and complexity over the years, Baltic Yachts needed tighter control over its design and engineering process. After evaluating different options to replace their existing CAD system, Baltic Yachts selected CATIA from Dassault Systèmes as the solution to integrate the complete value chain, provide the flexibility needed for its collaborative design and engineering processes while supporting the company’s creativity and innovation with state-of-the-art modules and methodologies dedicated to the marine industry.
Built on an open architecture, CATIA for Marine solutions enable a seamless flow of information across all actors in the yacht building value chain, covering the three main disciplines – structure, systems, and interiors – on a single collaborative platform, while offering a unique integration of the marine process.
CATIA was implemented by RAND Finland, a consulting firm specialized in Dassault Systèmes PLM solutions and supported by Dassault Systèmes marine industry experts. Dassault Systèmes has a team dedicated to marine customers and recently launched an initiative in Jakobstad in Finland, where one of Baltic Yacht’s production plants is located, to support the local marine industry.
