Inside the hull of this elegant yacht built for Eddie Jordan is a plumbing solution based on Geberit’s Mapress pipe.

This 47 m yacht built by Sunseeker for Formula 1 motor-racing pundit Eddie Jordan uses Geberit Mapress pipe for piped services. The biggest project undertaken by this British-based luxury-yacht manufacturer, this yacht has accommodation for up to 12 guests, two VIP cabins with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a formal dining area, balconies and separate captain’s accommodation.

BSS Industrial supplied all the pipework for the engine, bilge, heating, air conditioning and fire-protection systems — which came courtesy of the Geberit Mapress press-fitting solution, which saves considerable time on site compared to traditional welded pipe.

Mapress CuNiFe and stainless steel were used, CuNiFe is used in areas that come into contact with salt water for its corrosion-resisting properties.

Richard Tyler of BSS said, ‘BSS and Geberit worked closely with the Sunseeker design team to ensure that we could offer solutions to any technical issues that occurred during the build.’
