Former Japanese fisheries vessel to be converted into 45m explorer motor yacht Cklass Nautique by HYS Yachts

December 18, 2014

Philippines-based refit shipyard, HYS Yachts, is currently working on the transformation of a former Japanese fisheries vessel into a rugged yet opulent go anywhere 45-metre explorer motor yacht Cklass Nautique.

The boat was previously known as the Sakae Maru and before its retirement in early 2011, it spent many years cruising the length and breadth of Japan as a government fisheries training vessel.

Knowing that this sturdy, immaculately maintained vessel would be perfectly suited for a long-range luxury explorer conversion, HYS purchased it shortly after being released from government service.

After all fit-out and functionality requirements were hammered out with its new owner, the conversion process began in April of 2013.

When the 45m explorer superyacht Cklass Nautique emerges from the HYS facility in mid February 2015, she will include a 45 square meter owner’s penthouse with Jacuzzi (forward) and open air lounge (aft), massive 60 square meter saloon, bar, formal dining and kitchenette area, 30 square meter alfresco dining deck, a 70 square meter helideck and outdoor entertainment platform, gymnasium, cinema, four en-suite guest accommodations and a 80 square meter tender deck which – when clear of tenders and other toys – doubles as a “beach club” lounge area with fold-out water-level side terraces.

CdM announces sale of Darwin Class 102’ yacht and Nauta Air 108’ superyacht

December 18, 2014

The well known Ancona-based builder, Cantiere delle Marche, has proudly announced the sale of Darwin Class 102’ yacht and Nauta Air 108’ superyacht. The shipyard thus closes 2014 with two more sales, making a total of five yachts sold in less than twelve months.

Of this year’s five sales, three took place in South America, a market that CdM had decided to target in 2014 through specific marketing and sales activities made possible thanks to an important relational network. Its territorial activity will be notably intensified in 2015, with the appointment of a local dealer/area manager. The other two sales this year were concluded in Europe, with an English and with an Italian clients.

In particular, the last two yachts sold were:

CdM Nauta Air 108’ yacht: a displacement yacht in steel and aluminum, conceived in all its particulars for the Americas, with an especially reduced draft. In addition to the usual features of an Explorer yacht (over-engineering, redundancies, great seaworthiness, transpacific autonomy, etc.), this yacht designed by Nauta Design boasts ample outside spaces that culminate in a 70-square meter sun deck and, on the main deck, a real beach club that is in direct contact with the water. This is a particularly innovative alternative to having a beach club in the place that is usually dedicated to garage space. To CdM, another important feature of this boat is the 7.5-meter beam platform built to accommodate a layout that includes a master cabin on the main deck. On the technical side, besides the usual features also found in the Darwin Class, this boat will be fitted with a latest generation Dynamic Positioning System, along with a highly sophisticated navigation system, a ship-owner’s toy garage with side access door (the two tenders will be positioned externally, like on the Explorer yacht), and a Bulb (a CdM first-time feature). The interiors will be appointed by Italian designers and will include tactile and luxury surfaces.

Darwin Class 102’ yacht: the sister ship to the Darwin Class 102’ sold in February and designed by Sergio Cutolo of Hydrotec, this Explorer distinguishes itself thanks to an important modification brought to the stern, its particularly convivial layout, and special attention to the toys that are housed in its enormous garage. The very spacious stern platform can accommodate a five-meter tender, whereas the upper deck can hold a 6.20-meter one. During long voyages, the first one can also be put on the upper deck. At the Client request, a management team was involved in the ship-building process and was tasked with configuring the yacht for extended navigation, especially in the Caribbean and in the waters of South America, and for getting the most out of the Charter market. In answer to the many requests received by the shipyard in recent years, there will finally be a Darwin Class available for the Charter market.

CdM highlights some interesting information on the commercial success of its products:

•             The sales average has gone from one contract every 90 days to one contract every 75 days;

•             The size of yachts sold has increased and consequently, so has the valued of the single contracts: 4 of the last 5 boats have been over 100 feet long;

•             The shipyard’s backlog of orders is enough to keep production running at saturation capacity until 2017;

•             The launch of the Darwin 2.0 line and the immediate success of those sales has confirmed CdM’s ability to listen to and heed the yacht market voices, and has shown its capacity to respond quickly to the input received so as to satisfy demand;

•             The success of the Nauta Air line, which amounts to about 25% of the shipyard’s total production, bears witness to the fact that the market has fully responded to the innovative principle implicit in Explorer Yacht that is to be found in the form but in the content;

•             Virtually all of its buyers come from a world of serial-production shipyards with brands that have been solidly anchored in the market for decades or, in two cases, they are owners of yachts built in northern European shipyards with just as aristocratic a lineage. CdM’s commercial success shows how the market is evolving towards serving a type of clientele that demonstrates a greater maturity in its heightened attention to content, to quality, and to reliability above all else, just as was predicted in 2010 when the shipyard began its adventure.

Cantiere delle Marche, which distinguished itself from the start, thanks to the typology and quality of the boats produced in its Ancona facility, has earned its place among the best performers of the sector. As of now, three more yachts are planned for delivery in 2015 (Darwin Class 107’, 102’ and 86’) and there are additional orders on the books and in production for delivery between 2016 and 2017.

65m Fassmer Explorer Yacht Equipment from Helipad to Underwater Lift

December 02, 2014

Fassmer, part of the DEUTSCHE YACHTEN working group positioned in Berne on the Lower Weser in Germany, has demonstrated how everything is possible in the field of mechanical engineering as well as construction. The company has produced a concept study based on their 65-metre Explorer Yacht that comprises features ranging from a helipad to an underwater lift.

65m Fassmer Explorer Yacht

65m Fassmer Explorer Yacht

The special purpose vessels built by Fassmer, including many search and rescue boats, are internationally renowned, as is the police boat “Helgoland” which was launched in Büsum at the beginning of November. The components produced in powder-coated aluminium, stainless steel or GRP/carbon fibre by Fassmer’s deck equipment division have been used to build and refit mega yachts for many years.  In collaboration with the engineers from beiderbeck designs – also a member of the DEUTSCHE YACHTEN working group – Fassmer has produced a concept for a high-tech yacht based on two offshore survey vessels (“Fugro Searcher” and “Fugro Galaxy”) previously built by the company on the river Weser.

You can now customise your own Explorer to incorporate a helicopter landing pad that quickly swings out forward over the bow or a hangar amidships that lowers down into the vessel to accommodate the on-board helicopter.  Directly behind the hangar there is a garage with ramp where you can park your convertible, roadster or limousine. No matter what kind of vehicle you would like to take with you to the seas, this family-owned company will find a customised solution.

Included in Fassmer’s individualised standard portfolio are ladders and gangways between the individual decks or used for side boarding that are operated hydraulically and have user-oriented flap mechanisms of various kinds. Especially cool is a stern passerelle that seems to hover in the air and can be adjusted in height to provide a safe way to go ashore.  You could also opt for an observation platform that also swings out from various places on the hull.  The mechanical eye high on top of the telescopic mast keeps everything in view.

The tenders are a special highlight that is unique to this boatyard. These can be fitted out to serve as certified rescue boats, to act as transportation to the shore or as a luxury dinghy – or they can combine all functions in one. The accommodation on board is also designed in accordance with the required purpose for the Explorer. The numerous davit systems comply with the highest safety standards.

A contained beach club at the stern of the Explorer provides for great fun in the water, with its child-safe, shark-proof swimming area and wave-breaker. For the children, there is also a higher level of cruise comfort – a water slide that passes through several decks into the indoor pool. If you wish to explore the underwater flora and fauna up close but do not want to dive down yourself, just enter the underwater lift.  The lowest level is glazed, providing a panoramic view, just without the lift doors.

The yacht has an overall length of 65 metres, a beam of 14 metres, a displacement of 1850 tons and a draught of 4.20 metres. With a cruising speed of ten knots and a storage tank of 389 cubic metres, the vessel can travel for 6,000 nautical miles. Thanks to the highly modern diesel/electric propulsion system combined with extensive noise and vibration reduction technology, the Fassmer Explorer Yacht is one of the quietest vessels of its class. All nautical equipment refinements including SOLAS certification can also be implemented on any Fassmer Explorer Yacht.

ShowBoats Design Awards Finalists 2015 Finalists

December 01, 2014

Boat International Media are proud to present the 2015 ShowBoats Design Awards Finalists, who now stand in contention to receive a coveted Golden Neptune trophy. The awards ceremony will be once again hosted by the Tyrolean Alps during the Superyacht Design Symposium, on February 23, 2015.

Golden Neptune Trophy

Golden Neptune Trophy for ShowBoats Design Awards Winners

ShowBoats International and Boat International’s editorial teams have refined an impressive list of nominees to an exceptional shortlist, from which the winners will be chosen by an independent panel of expert judges.

Now in its sixth edition, the ShowBoats Design Awards will honour the innovators and creative minds behind the most exceptional superyacht designs of 2014. Focused entirely on the design aspects of superyacht production, the Awards will recognize creative excellence across a range of categories including Interior Design, Exterior Design & Styling, Naval Architecture, Holistic Design and Tender Design. The Young Designer of the Year Award, sponsored by Oceanco, will also be presented at this prestigious prize giving.

Finalists include 81.8m motor yacht Kibo which was delivered to her owner in June 2014. The yacht, built by Abeking & Rasmussen with interior and exterior by Terence Disdale Design was the ‘cover star’ of Boat International’s October relaunch issue.

Mega yacht Grace E, a 73m motor yacht built by Picchiotti (Perini Navi Group) featuring exterior design by Philippe Briand and interior design by Rémi Tessier, was debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show to critical acclaim, and takes a finalist spot in both interior and exterior design categories.

Heesen’s 40m motor yacht Galatea was one of twelve yachts shortlisted in the interior design class for motor yachts below 500GT, and Royal Huisman’s sailing yacht Wisp (47.65m) is a strong contender across the sailing yacht categories.

This year’s prize giving ceremony will take place on Day One of the Superyacht Design Symposium, after which all guests of the event will come together for an evening of celebration.

The addition of the Awards to the Superyacht Design Symposium programme enhances an already inspiring three-day agenda of discussion, networking opportunities including the Blohm + Voss Ski Cup in this idyllic wintery destination. Interactive, thought-provoking presentation and discussion will be led by expert speakers including icons of design such as Terence Disdale, Andrew Winch and Piero Lissoni to name a few.

An impressive list of attendees have already confirmed their attendance at the 2015 Symposium. The organizers expect a sell-out event in 2015 and encourage delegates to purchase their tickets for the Superyacht Design Symposium without delay to avoid disappointment.

New 41,41m Explorer Motor Yacht LA CONFIANZA concept by P.B. Behage

December 01, 2014

P.B. Behage is proud to introduce his new 41,41m (136’) motor yacht La Confianza concept. Superyacht La Confianza concept is a robust explorer, created and designed for long voyages in all weather conditions.

The decks of the 41,41m luxury yacht La Confianza concept are carefully planned for all seasons’ cruising. The main and wheelhouse decks offer a walk-around access and a perfect visibility, making it easier for crew to operate the vessel.

Super yacht La Confianza concept is capable of sea crossing with comfort and safety. The vessel is efficient in fuel use and features a stable hull form, which is suitable for use in any season and weather condition.

To meet all these requirements, P.B. Behage has compared all the practical experience with the model tests results. The studio has also paid attention to weight saving and lower weight for the construction and location for systems, as well as high-quality material for the interior finish, all based on owner’s wishes. However, the customer can naturally choose a more modern or classic interior finish.

The layout of the 41,41m explorer yacht La Confianza concept includes owner’s and guests’ accommodation with adjoining bath/shower room for eight persons. There is a main deck master suit, a lower deck full-beam VIP stateroom and two double cabins, with eventual Pullman berth for children. The separated and independent crew quarters are positioned on the lower deck.

The layout of the 41,41m La Confianza superyacht design can be modified to become a comfortable charter yacht, with accommodation for 10 guests in five cabins.

The explorer yacht La Confianza concept will be constructed from steel and aluminium. She will be fully MCA compliant.

P.B. Behage would like to add that this model and all technical systems meet the requirements of the present day and include more innovative ideas to maximize future resale value.

If desired, the La Confianza yacht design can be modified to include a touch-and-go helipad aft on the upper deck, while a crane on the foredeck allows for the launch and recovery of two custom 5.9m aluminium tenders.
