Custom helm builder IMED, has supplied four new helm panels on a 45-metre charter yacht in the Mediterranean - from its base in Auckland.
The project is a first for the company which has previously used its own experts for all installations, no matter where, globally, the yacht was lying. However, with this latest project, IMED worked with onsite project managers and installers to deliver a seamless
helm installation process.
Cosmetically appealing, waterproof and backlit for night vision, these slickly-branded new panels boast state of the art controls, sticks and an integrated air horn control. The attention to detail in the work is evident in the overall aesthetic of the panels, through to
the ability to select any colour of back lighting the operator chooses.
A Dubois design built in 2002, this modern classic yacht has a rigorous charter schedule that demands consistent high performance from all components onboard. IMED’s well- designed helms come with a small panel of spares which allow the onboard engineer to change any parts necessary while on the go.
IMED is unique in that it is not only creating new and effective solutions to functionality and waterproofing; but is also producing some of the most elegantly designed and aesthetically appealing work on the market.
Based in Auckland, IMED has provided electrical design, power generation and automation systems to yachts since 2001. Over the last three years, the company has delivered dozens of custom projects and helms to sailing and motor yachts, with its constant innovation in on-water electrical systems satisfying customers around the world.
With demand coming from all corners of the globe, IMED has successfully designed, built and fitted custom helms on a spread of yachts with different cruising needs.
