Newthex doors & hatches onboard superyacht ACE

In early December Conrad Shipyard christened the 44.27-metre superyacht C144S in Gdansk. The vessel named ACE is the first of its line and is the largest motor yacht yet built by the Polish shipyard. Newthex delivered a versatile range of doors and hatches for this tri-deck motor yacht. With the second vessel already in the outfitting stage Conrad is working on another masterpiece.


For ACE Newthex delivered a complete range of weathertight accommodation doors, automatic sliding doors, hatches in multiple sizes and several watertight Next Doors.



The second Conrad hull from this series has already moved to outfitting and will have a  similar share of Newthex products onboard. Like motor yacht ACE the vessel has a steel hull with an aluminum superstructure. The expected delivery date of this sister vessel is set in the summer of 2023.

Newthex signs contract for new helicopter lifting platform

Just a few months after mounting the previous helicopter lifting platform Newthex signs a contract for delivering a new platform for another superyacht.

Due to the ships geometry and available space the Newthex engineering team was challenged to come up with a project specific solution which results in a shorter platform suitable for taking the helicopter.

The weather tight hatch is slightly bigger as 13 metres and when opened stands almost 4 metres high. The platform is driven by a hydraulic jigger cylinder which moves the platform by multiple wire ropes from the helideck down to the hangar.

Benefits of the Newthex hidden flush transom door

One of the reasons of owning a superyacht is the beachclub where the owners and guest always love to stay and enjoy the luxury toys or just chill close to the sea. 


But how do you create the perfect beachclub without the shade of an upwards hinged transom door and without the cons of a transom swimming platform that is more exposed to the waves. At Newthex we offer the perfect solution with our ‘Hidden flush transom door’.

The Youtube channel ‘Yachts for Sale’ visits the Turkish superyacht builder Turquoise Yachts and gets a closer look onboard superyacht NB69 which is also equipped with our hidden flush transom door.

More information about the Newthex doors onboard this superyacht can be found here.

To see how this Hidden flush transom door works you can check this factory acceptance test of a similar yet smaller Newthex door for another superyacht. These transom doors can be designed by Newthex in every dimension to best suit the beachclub the owner or designer has in mind for a comfortable and spacious feel to the area.

The importance of a factory acceptance test

All doors, hatches and elevators we produce at Newthex go through an FAT, which is short for Factory Acceptance Test. Why do we create these test and why is it important for our clients?


Before we prepare our product for transport and shipment we conduct a FAT. Off course depending on the client and the agreements we made in general you can state that most tests we conduct are done with the client and ship owner representatives.

At the Newthex factory we set up a rig and assemble all components to create a complete working setup of the door or hatch with the actual hydraulic parts and other components for that specific door.


“We can check if all parts move correct, save and with the right speed and hydraulic pressure. We even test if the seal is watertight and more. In the end it saves time when assembled at the yard. Which is a huge benefit for the shipyard.” says technical director Martin Luth.


Also the client signs of on a fully working product. Knows how it needs to be operated, how it runs an how the safety features work. This ensures the same quality during installation at the shipyard.

Newthex moves to new location

On Friday the 7th of May it was moving day for the Newthex crew. At only a 3 miles away from the old facility we find the new Newthex location in the town Kolham.

Both office, engineering department, production and assembly facility are now placed under one roof. The new location houses a larger warehouse facility and milling department for the production of our aluminium and stainless steel parts for our superyacht and naval doors, hatches and elevators.

With the new location Newthex focuses on further optimizing the production process of its standard products and fully-customized systems in steel, aluminium and composite materials. Following thorough in-house testing, and in an easy-to-handle ‘plug-and-play’ format that makes our products quick and simple to install.
