MICAD, engineering aimed at the sea’s jewels

CAE technologies in the Marine Industry


MICAD has begun his activity since 2004, the expertise in naval, mechanical and design fields of the three founders were merged to create a center of competence suitable to collect energies coming from different grounds. We are rapidly shooting up and now the team is made up of 11 people.
Our grounds are the naval and nautical fields focusing on the engineer consultancy for shipyards all over the world.
We have been working since 2010 alongside the novelty in the worldwide panorama of luxury yachting, the brand “Monte Carlo Yachts”.
They are pioneers in nautical composite materials constructions introducing for the first time the modular assembly system, for this reason they gained in 2015 the “innovation in a production process award” as a part of the prestigious new Boat Builder Awards for business achievement organized jointly by IBI magazine and METS.
MICAD is partner of Monte Carlo Yachts assisting them in their growing up.
We have also established collaborations with the giant boat builder Bénéteau, developing the naval architecture of Monte Carlo 4, Monte Carlo 6, of the last two models launched in the “Gran Turismo” gamma, the GT40 and GT46, as well as the new Swift Trawler 30.

Traditional naval architecture meets the CFD analysis with the aim to improve consolidated products reaching values in terms of performance never seen before.
