Why inclusive design?.- Inclusive Yachting.- State of the Art in the Design of Accessible Boats.- Critical Analysis of Existing Sailing Boats.- Guidelines for Access, Movement and Use of Space.- Design Proposals for Accessible and Inclusive Boats.- Conclusions.
This book proposes a novel approach to the design of accessible and inclusive sailing yachts, inspired by the principles of “Design for All.” The goal is to allow anyone, including users with disabilities and individuals belonging to the weaker segments, to sail without barriers. Starting from an analysis of existing pleasure boats, the author identifies a series of factors limiting the accessibility or usability of external and internal spaces. In turn, he discusses the most suitable solutions to each. By proposing an extensive set of design solutions applicable to the confined spaces on yachts, and which comply with the relevant anthropometric and dimensional rules, the book offers a timely snapshot of the potential benefits and applicability of an inclusive approach to yacht design, setting a new reference standard for inclusive and accessible nautical design.
