lightweight® – reduce your cruise ship weight by up to 50%!

lightweight® – reduce your cruise ship weight by up to 50%!

When planning efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly cruise ship projects, the weight of the products becomes more and more important. For every 1000 kg of weight, another liter of petrol is needed, which is consumed and pollutes the environment. It also has a negative impact on the floating characteristics of the ship.

Eumar Design invented an exclusive formula for its award-winning GelCeramic Lightweight® composite stone material. This has allowed Eumar Design to reduce product weight by up to 50%

Within 10-15 years of cruise ship operation, it significantly impacts cost savings and reduced environmental impact, ensuring the achievement of the highest ROI for cruise ship owners. We are the inventors of a material whose density is two times lighter than other materials.

We recover 40,000 kg per cruise ship project, equivalent to a saving of 1,000,000 euros for the cruise ship owner.


For example, our 2021 project on the cruise ship AIDA COSTA ASIA reduced the weight from 90,000 kg to 47,000 kg! That’s a remarkable achievement in today’s world of the shipping industry. And that’s not all – in the past we have had many projects where we have saved up to 50% of the weight for the shipbuilding industry.

These include cruise ships projects of the following:

and many more to come!

towards a more sustainable future

This new material is particularly popular for offshore and shipbuilding projects where weight is critical, impacting fuel economy and/or increasing payload. But that’s not all!

Lightweight® also has a big impact on the environment, as its durability and resistance make it environmentally friendly. Thanks to its composite stone material and formula, it can also be recycled and repaired. Our Lightweight® is a seamless composite stone with a durable gel coat layer and a smooth, glossy finish. The best features of Lightweight® are seamless and hygienic, non-porous and anti-bacterial, easy to maintain, repairable and renewable, and thermal shock resistant.
