THE IMPORTANCE OF EXPERIENCE IN MARINE INDUSTRY: Trimline interview with Cruise & Ferry International

And then there’s the higher demand on logistics accuracy. “Air freight, sea freight and weather considerations all need to be made as often there is an exceptionally short timescale to load materials onboard,” explains Tony Body, director of Project Delivery at marine outfitter Trimline. “When planning a marine project, we work backwards from logistics, through procurement and manufacturing to arrive at key time milestones.”

And then there’s the need to consider workforce welfare. “Travel, accommodation, subsistence, utilities and laundry are all considerations with a large workforce living onboard,” says Trimline’s Body.

Experience in all of these elements can enable a firm to truly exceed expectations, and this is something that Body says it has done with its recent design of Marella Discovery’s Live Room. “We have worked with Marella Cruises many times, so have an unrivalled knowledge of their interior brand,” Body says. “Trimline transformed the Live Room, which was previously split into two parts, into an open space and the ship’s focal hub. The team refurbed the near empty shell with new bulkheads, deck heads, raised deck and stage areas, and a custom-built bar. This included HVAC and fire suppression system, all within the turnkey package.

“We also fitted an acoustic ‘floating’ deck and install sound dampening to reduce noise levels to cabins situated directly below. And we added contemporary laminate pink and blue design bulkheads with feature ceiling discs and LED lighting, including a programmable system for dimming and changeable colours to suit the requirements of the onboard entertainers.”
