In addition to “Sails” and “Restoration”, the availability of boatbuilding woods and possibilities to replace classic tropical woods was a major topic.
As meetings with many people still remain difficult due to the Corona situation, the Classic Yacht Symposium 2022 took place online. In his contribution, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Alexander Pfriem first informed the participants of the event about the current legal framework regarding protected woods according to the CITES list, and about sources and availability of boatbuilding woods. Thereafter, the possibilities offered by substitute woods and modified woods were discussed.
