IN NEW WOOD.
A NEW PATH WITH
THIS WOODEN DECK.
THE PERFECT ALTERNATIVE
Tesumo is the new Teak
The beauty and superior quality of teak has never been matched by any other material – until now.
For TESUMO, an innovative wood, has completely changed all this, boasting the same properties as teak in almost all important respects.
But TESUMO differs greatly from teak in one essential point: it is among other things based on sustainably cultivated wood obtained from politically harmless regions. This is one of the reasons why TESUMO is hailed as the teak alternative of the future in yacht building.
Feel the warmth and essence of real wood that will set you on the right path.
Relish the exquisite look and feel of teak combined with superior quality and the good feeling of standing on the right side with both feet by choosing TESUMO.
Every decision in favor of TESUMO is yet another step towards more sustainability. We took our first step by founding our company in 2008, when we resolved to replace teak with an innovation.
The next large steps, involving diverse tests, led TESUMO to market maturity. Other crucial steps are yet to follow, in particular digital proof of origin of the timber.
With its rich, golden-brown color and beautiful structure, TESUMO combines technical properties like dimensional stability, weather resistance and natural durability that match those of teak.
In other words, TESUMO has the outer and inner beauty that meets the highest standards required for every yacht and yacht owner.
In real applications on land and at sea, TESUMO has proven its performance and durability over many years – and continues to prove both to this day.
TESUMO was developed as part of a research project conducted by Lürssen Shipyard and the German University of Göttingen. It is ‘Made in Germany’ using natural, fast-growing wood, preferably from controlled sustainable forest management, as a basis and refined in a three-stage modification process that has been protected by a comprehensive patent since 2016.
HOW WOOD BECOMES TESUMO
THE AIM was to create a REAL ALTERNATIVE to TEAK for use as a HIGH-QUALITY WOODEN DECK on yachts.
“The basics for TESUMO were developed in my department. The aim was to create a real alternative to teak for use as a high-quality wooden deck on yachts. The properties required in the project have been confirmed in scientific tests in the laboratory and in practical use. TESUMO’s combination of hardness, dimensional stability, durability and resistance to cracking are the most important characteristics of this new material.”
Prof. Dr. Holger Militz, Head of the Wood Biology and Wood Products Department, Georg-August University, Göttingen
