Das junge Unternehmen Dynamiq baut bereits an seiner zweiten Yacht. Nach dem Bau der ersten Yacht “Jetsetter” im vergangenen Jahr wird nun eine GTT 115 hergestellt. Bei einer Zeremonie in den Werfthallen in Viareggio wurde traditionell eine Münze am Kiel platziert. Im Zuge dessen wurden einige Unterstützer des Projekts und der Werft eingeladen. So waren unter anderem Pierre Casiraghi und Bernard D’Alessandri vor Ort. Zu der neuen Yacht gibt es bislang die Informationen, dass das Interieur ebenso wie das Exterieur von dem österreichischem Designstudio F.A. Porsche gestaltet wurde. Zudem entwickelte Vripack die Marinearchitektur der neuen Serie.

Der Alu-Rumpf wurde bereits mit dem Aufbau verbunden. Aktuell werden die Verkleidung und mechanische Ausstattung durchgeführt.

Wir dürfen gespannt sein, wann das Unternehmen um Gründer und Geschäftsführer Sergei Dobroserdov weitere Neuigkeiten zu der GTT 115 Serie veröffentlichen wird.

Heesen Yachts sold Project Alida

Heesen Yachts is pleased to announce the sale of YN 17755 (aka Project Alida).

The client, an experienced boater, was introduced to the shipyard by Barin Cardenas of The New Yachts Company, a boutique firm dedicated to new construction, based in Fort Lauderdale, who worked closely with Thom Conboy of Heesen Yachts USA.

Project Alida is a 55m Fast Displacement, steel-hulled motoryacht that combines efficiency, performance and elegance in a design package of 740GT.

Omega Architects created an exterior design that emphasises the indoor-outdoor connection thanks to glass insertions in the bulwarks and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the sky lounge.

Vertical windows on the main deck, together with an original “shark tooth” design detail on the overhang of the wheelhouse, provide Project Alida with a bold and distinctive character.

The clean and muscular exterior lines without fashion plates and structural support have been cleverly engineered and perfectly executed by Heesen in-house experts, so nothing comes between the guests and the breathtaking views.

RADYCA, a Miami based design firm, is in charge of the interior styling while working closely with the shipyard to ensure that the client’s taste is incorporated into the space, creating a sophisticated, tailor-made and unique experience.

SIMPLICITY, WARMTH, and COMFORT through the use of select materials and a high level of craftsmanship, are the key ingredients in the creation of Alida’s refined interior. The overall design is for an owner who understands luxury, relaxation and entertainment while yachting.

Contrast is achieved by the consistent use of neutral hues found in open-grain white oak and different tones of wengé, taupe and grey leathers, wool carpets, and light textured suedes. White Arabescato and Grecale brown marble slabs emphasize the purity of the design.

Guests will be luxuriously accommodated in six staterooms: five guest cabins on the lower deck – including a full beam VIP – and the master suite traditionally located on the main deck forward.

With the tenders stored on the forward deck, a beach club is set into the lazarette that offers owners and guests a fantastic place to relax close to the water.

However, Project Alida’s beauty also extends below the waterline. Thanks to the progressive hull design devised by van Oossanen Naval Architects and implemented by Heesen in-house engineering team, Project Alida offers frugal fuel consumption coupled with a remarkable range of 4.500nm at 13 knots, while her top speed reaches 16 knots. At 12 knots her range becomes ever more impressive reaching 5.400 nm. Combining magnificent comfort with optimised efficiency throughout the speed spectrum, she sets a new standard in superyacht performance. Project Alida is a true blue-water vessel with Dutch pedigree.

Project Alida will undergo intensive sea trials in the North Sea prior to delivery to her new owners in time for cruising in July 2017.

Keel laying at Nobiskrug in Kiel

“Rendsburg/Kiel, Germany – The ceremonial keel laying of a next Nobiskrug superyacht-new build project took place at the shipyard’s premises in Kiel.

After gathering of the guests and the yard’s team and following a short address of the management, an 80-ton block-section was lifted by crane into the building shed, marking another important milestone of the construction of the 80-meter superyacht. The construction of all sections with a very high degree of outfitting up to assembly of the complete hull will take place in the sheds of the yard under controlled climate conditions – there with warranting utmost quality.
Traditionally, the Owner brought a special coin that was placed under the keel and once the yacht will be near to completion, the coin will be retrieved and presented back to the Owner for good luck while sailing the oceans.
“This happy occasion indicates the start of the hull assembly of the superyacht – when, for the first time she is considered to have a soul. It is also a traditional maritime ceremony to bring good fortune to a vessel during her construction and to her captain, guests and crew during her life” said Holger Kahl, Managing Director.
This technically fascinating yacht with outstanding, unique design features both in the exterior and interior styling will noticeably set a mark for the future use of glass on superyachts. The spacious and modern concept and the innovative technology of the vessel will contribute in creating a special comfort feeling while cruising in the beautiful areas of the world.
“Nobiskrug is known for pushing the boundaries and for not being a mass builder, every superyacht we build represents a unique vision of the owner – this project is just another example we are very proud of” added Holger Kahl.
After the keel was laid, the Owner and guests were invited for lunch in the Sky-Lounge on top of the 900t gantry crane which is one of Kiel’s landmarks. It offers a reception area at an approximate height of 100m and an impressive 360-degree panoramic view of the Kiel-Fjord.
Still to be named, the 80-meter superyacht is set to be delivered in 2019, when it becomes the next gem of the Nobiskrug fleet of bespoke SUPERYACHTS FOR THE 22nd CENTURY.”

Gulf Craft verkündet den Bau von Megayachten

Es gab einige Neuigkeiten und Neuvorstellungen auf der diesjährigen Monaco Yacht Show. Unter anderem verkündete Gulf Craft den Bau von zwei neuen Modellen, der Majesty 175 und der Majesty 200. Das im Jahr 1982 gegründete Unternehmen aus den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten begann als Bootswerft für Sportboote und Anglerboote und entwickelte sich in den letzten Jahren zu einer festen Größe im Superyachtbereich. Nachdem Gulf Craft dieses Jahr in Monaco ihr bis dato größtes Modell, die Majesty 155, ausgestellt hatte, erklärten Geschäftsführer Erwin Bamps und Vorsitzender Mohammed Hussein Al Shaali, dass sie den nächsten Schritt wagen und in den Megayacht Bereich einsteigen werden. Die neuen Yachten können ab sofort gebaut werden und warten nur noch auf einen Eigner. Sie können individuell nach Kundenwunsch gestaltet werden, es besteht unter anderem die Möglichkeit ein Helipad oder einen großes Beachclub zu integrieren. Die Grundpreise liegen bei etwa 30 Millionen Euro für das 53 Meter lange Modell sowie bei circa 45 Millionen Euro für die Majesty 200, ihrerseits 61 Meter lang. “Der Leitgedanke von Gulf Craft bestand schon immer aus großen Ambitionen”, so Erwin Bamps, CEO von Gulf Craft. Wir werden gespannt erwarten ab wann die ersten 50m+ Yachten von Gulf Craft das Werftgelände verlassen.

Ebenso besuchten Eigner die Show um sich nach einer neuen Yacht, neuem Tender oder neuem Spielzeug umzuschauen. Hier nun ein kleiner Vorgeschmack auf die, in den nächsten Wochen, folgenden Beiträge über die 26. Auflage der Yacht Show.

Monaco Yacht Show 2014(MYS)

Heute kommt ein erster Bericht über die Monaco Yacht Show 2014 und die Yachten, welche vor Anker lagen oder im Hafen ausgestellt wurden.

Today I release the first review about the Monaco Yacht Show (MYS) 2014 and the yachts, which anchored at the bay of Monaco or exhibited at the port.

Der Port Hercule, war randvoll mit Superyachten und die Gewässer dazwischen waren ebenso gut gefüllt mit allen möglichen Tendern, die einerseits von den vor Anker liegenden Schiffen kamen und andererseits natürlich auch ausgestellt und vorgeführt wurden. Zudem gab es noch einige Shuttle-Tender, für VIP-Besucher der Aussteller.

The Port Hercule was chock-full of superyachts and the waters between were equally well filled with all sorts of tenders. In addition, there were still some shuttle-tenders for VIP-visitors.

Monaco Yacht ShowMonaco Yacht ShowAuf der Show selbst standen unzählige Superyachten, wobei die meisten Formate eine Länge von über 40-50 Meter hatten.

On the show itself were countless superyachts, with lenghts of over 130-164ft.
