Advanced testing checks for damage on grounded racing yacht

A full survey was required by insurers following the grounding of a yacht during an offshore race in the 2015 summer.  Advanced NDT was applied to the mast, keel and rudder to check for damage, using ultrasound, with phased array high frequency inspection being applied to the mast.

“We were looking to detect any issues,” explains Giles Waterhouse, Marine Results’ NDT specialist.  “We reported our findings to the original manufacturers of the components, and they will then use this information in any consequent insurance claim and on-going risk management.”
