Dreamboat-in-Monaco-2019-Superyachtblog-2

As we said in an earlier post. There are more pictures on hold and it’s time to publish some unique pictures of the Dutch superyacht DreAMBoat which was delivered in 2019 by Oceanco.

This 90m yacht features Espen Oeino exterior and Terence Disdale interior design. DreAMBoat offers enough space for 22 guest, including an owners cabin with children accommodation on the upper deck. A crew of 27 is serving you during the time onboard.

DreAMBoat was built on spec, which reduced her delivery time to only 18 months, which is awesome for a 90m yacht! Her hull is based on Oceanco’s 700 series and includeds many well known yachts, like DAR and Alfa Nero.

During Monaco Yacht Show 2019 she was showcased for the first time. Which yachts do you want to see displayed in Monaco this year?

Albula, first yacht visit in 2021

On an early morning in January 2021, Albula made her way through the locks in Kiel. She is the first superyacht which made this passage in 2021.

Albula was built in 2006 in Assens, Denmark at Royal Denship. The yacht returned to her home shipyard for a refit period. With a length of 64m she scratches at the top 200 largest private yachts in the world. Albula has a famous sister. Force Blue was recently sold in an auction to Bernie Eccelstone, previously the yacht was owned by Flavio Briatore, another Formula 1 official and friend of Eccelstone.

For 2021 we expect several yachts in the Baltic Sea and already looking forward to several new build yachts on sea trials.

Stuck in quarantine – New pictures of Octopus

Things you can do as a yacht photographer during quarantine: Examine your photographs of the last summer.

If you are stuck in quarantine and aren’t allowed to go out of your flat for two weeks. There are two options of how to deal with it. First one, relax on a couch and wait until these long 14 days are over. Or second option, try to do as much “office” work as possible from home. So instead of reclining on a couch with your TV on, it was time to look up our harddrives for some yet unshared new pictures. And there are several unique treasures which are about to be revealed here.

During MYS 2019 we’ve been extremely busy, catching up with some yacht industry friends, visiting yachts, doing sea trials in the bay, etc. There was a lot to do and many pictures had been taken during these couple of days. But it sadly wasn’t possible to process all these pictures. That’s why we still have many pictures in the pipeline.

Before you’re getting bored of our wailing we present you some pictures of Octopus. This recoginzable yacht has been listed for sale in early 2019 and was showcased in Monaco for the very first time. She was built in 2003 in Kiel for Paul Allen. Octopus is a true explorer yacht and was used a lot for expeditions and explorations. In 2015 her owner discovered the sunken battleship Musashi in the Sibuyan Sea. After Paul Allens death in October 2018 the yacht arrived in Hamburg for a refit. Since 2019 she is up for sale and ready to start sailing the world again with a new owner. On board are various tenders and toys stored, including two helicopters, a large submarine for up to 8 people and a 19m Vikal tender.⁠

Le Grand Bleu, Explorer Yacht in Kiel

Le Grand Bleu was built in 2000 at Bremer Vulkan shipyard in Germany. This 113m megayacht is equipped with many tenders and toys!

The last week in June is always reserved for Kiel Week in Kiel. Kiel Week or as we say in German “Kieler Woche” is one of the largest sail events in the world! Every year many traditional Tall Ships arrive in Kiel as well as small sailboats to take part in Regatta races held in Kiel Bight. This year one of the largest explorer yachts visited Kiel too. Le Grand Bleu was built in 2000 at Bremer Vulkan shipyard in Germany, with design by Kusch Yachts, Kono-Design and Bannenberg Design. This 113m megayacht is equipped with many tenders and toys! There is a 21m Princess yacht stored on her starboard side and a 22m sailing yacht designed by Dubois Design. And on board are at least six more tenders. The yacht has also the capacity to land two helicopters on two different helidecks and has a petrol tank to refuel them.

Le Grand Bleu visited Copenhagen and Aalborg in Denmark before arriving for Kiel Week in Northern Germany. The yacht is at the moment (02.07.2019) moored in Hamburg. If you have any information about her reason to stop in Kiel or Hamburg please do send us a message via our contact form or via Email to info@superyachtblog.de

Mercedes, Silver Arrows Marine

Mercedes, der Name war bislang nicht sehr präsent in der Superyacht Industrie. In der Automobilindustrie schon lange eine Säule, versucht sich die Designabteilung nun auch an eigenen Yachten. Hinter dem Namen Silver Arrows Marine steht ein fantastisches Team von Designern und Ingenieuren, die dieses Projekt vorbereitet haben. Bereits vor drei Jahren, bei der Premiere in Monaco, erweckte das neue Konzept große Aufmerksamkeit. Die eleganten Linien sowie die typische silberne Farbe fallen sofort auf.

Mit einer Länge von gut 14 Metern ist die Yacht perfekt als Dayboat oder Tender für Megayachten geeignet. Bei knapp 38 Knoten ist die Höchstgeschwindigkeit erreicht. Während einer Probefahrt im vergangenen Jahr konnten wir uns ein Bild über die Seetauglichkeit des Schiffes machen und waren begeistert wie ruhig die Yacht im Wasser lag, trotz über 30 Knoten Fahrt und leichten Wellen. Angetrieben wird die Mercedes von zwei 440 PS starken Yanmar Motoren.

Das Interieur ist sehr geräumig und bietet eine Stehhöhe von 1,90 Meter, was für einen Tender absolut beachtlich ist. Ausgestattet mit Küche und Nasszelle kann der Eigner Ausflüge in flache Gewässer vornehmen, ohne auf den gewohnten Komfort verzichten zu müssen. Ein eingebauter Tisch lässt sich zum Speisen unter Deck oder auch im abgesenktem Zustand als Liegefläche verwenden. Das Highlight im Bug der Yacht ist definitiv das große Glasdach, welches nicht nur die Lichtdurchlässigkeit verändern kann, sondern auch geöffnet werden kann. Zudem lassen sich auch die seitlich angebrachten Scheiben versenken, wodurch ein offenes Raumgefühl entsteht und eine angenehme Brise die Gäste abkühlt. Bis zu zehn Gäste können sich auf zur gleichen Zeit an Bord aufhalten. Wem es unter Deck zu eng ist, der kann es sich auf der großen Badeplattform (10m²) gemütlich machen. Für einen einfach Zustieg und zur Vergrößerung der Badeplattform lässt sich eine weitere Badeplattform aus dem Heck der Yacht ausfahren.

Die Arrow 460 Granturismo hat einen Grundpreis von ca 2.500.000 €.

Forever One visiting Kiel

Superyacht Forever One arrived in Kiel, after her recent refit at Kusch Yachts shipyard in Wewelsfleth. Forever One was built in 2014 at ISA Yachts in Italy. For a 55 meter yacht she is very voluminous with 1050GT. The yacht will be cruising the Baltic Sea again. Last year she already started a Northern Europe tour with visits in Amsterdam, Hamburg and many more ports. She is at the moment moored in the heart of Kiel. As you can see it’s not the typical berth for a superyacht but Kiel is a great starting point for your cruise in the Baltic Sea.

Enjoy the pictures!
