Besenzoni introduced his watertight porthole at the last "Seatec" meeting in Marina di Carrara adding it to his catalogue for the first time. The company had always produced frames, though, for internal use. The watertight door is produced in compliance to Rina's specifics and with the use of water resistant materials such as brass, polyethylene, stainless steel and aluminium. Pre sale experiments have seen it tested on a 3 metre panel for 60 minutes. The doors are made watertight by matching the aluminium frames placed on either side of the door down to the finest part of a millimetre, thanks to precise welding of the seams and to the polymeric and silicone materials used. These factors allow for the yacht to be washed without running the risk of water seeping in. The opening and closing pressure of the door can be adjusted by a stainless steel cone shaped hinge. The watertight door lasts in time too because it undergoes a painting treatment with a particular polyester in a 220° oven which protects it from corrosive elements. Besenzoni, in addition to technical aspects, has always taken care of looks and design specially in the super yacht segment where nothing is left to chance. Being lodged along the passageway, the new door has been pleasantly designed and made flush as not to interfere with the passage.
