LIGNIA Yacht starts out as softwood

LIGNIA Yacht is a real wood alternative to Burmese teak in yacht decking and is being specified on yachts and superyachts including Spirit Yachts and its 50CR that was shown at the 2019 Southampton International Boat Show.

The product, made by the LIGNIA Wood Company in Barry in the UK, recently won the Innovation Award for Boatbuilding Methods and Materials at the IBEX show in Florida.

LIGNIA Yacht starts out its life as a softwood in FSC managed plantations. LIGNIA chooses quarter-sawn material from the wood and then modifies it, turning it into a wood that looks like and has the performance of a tropical hardwood teak.

The wood from LIGNIA Yacht’s feedstock comes from trees that are 22-years-old when harvested.
