77ft yachts White Rose and Silver Rose with interior by Guido de Groot Design

April 12, 2012

Guido de Groot Design has developed beautiful interiors for two 77 feet yachts White Rose and Silver Rose, both of which are currently in build in Slovenia. The interiors are being built by Bobič Yacht Interior. As for the interior style, this renowned Dutch design studio was motivated by a contemporary architectural approach combining modern materials like glass, white lacquered surfaces as well as stainless steel with warm materials such as anigre, wenge and mahogany wood surfaces, fabrics and leather.

When entering the salon, the glass panel partition walls (which separate the galley from the salon and the wheelhouse) allow to look directly through to the forward area of the yacht. For privacy in the galley area, blinds are located behind the glass panels.

For the light woods on board the Guido de Groot Design have chosen a slightly white washed “anigre”. The darker wood specified on the walls and in the selected furniture pieces is “wenge”, while the parquet floor is made from “santos mahogany” wood planking. The table can be raised and by placing a table top (foldable and stored else where) it can be changed into a dining table.

The wheelhouse area is the area with the largest glass surfaces, allowing an all-round nice panoramic view. For that reason the studio has created an additional seating area which can be used as a dining area as well. Materials used are similar to the other areas but around the dashboard area more dark brown leather can be found in order to avoid reflections in the front windows.

First interior renderings of the superyacht Sunreef 82 DD due to be launched in July 2012

April 05, 2012

Sailing yacht Sunreef 82 Double Decker, currently in build by the prestigious Polish shipyard Sunreef Yachts, is a spectacular catamaran, featuring sleek hulls as well as a streamlined deckhouse topped with a giant 35m2 flybridge inspired by large superyachts. The Sunreef 82 superyacht is scheduled to be launched in July 2012 with the grand debut at the Cannes Boat Show 2012.

The hulls and wet deck of the luxury yacht Sunreef 82 are currently in a single piece, and all the bulkheads have been installed. The fuel tanks have been placed within the hulls. The installation of the mechanical, hydraulic and electrical systems hidden in the floors is scheduled next, with the installation of the bathroom units and engines intended as the next step. The impressive CNC-cut flybridge mould has just arrived from Holland. Its infusion and addition to the wet deck is planned for Mid April 2012.

The everlasting stylish look of the hull line is the result of Sunreef’s advanced design technologies and ongoing research into new solutions and inspirations. Sunreef’s Naval Architecture Bureau is studying performance and sea capabilities using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) at its highest levels in collaboration with K-Epsilon and Rivoyre Ingenierie based in Sophia Antipolis, and applying Finite Element Analysis to structural calculations for the optimization of structural parts.

The Sunreef 82 DD superyacht has been designed with integrated stepped hull chines to increase interior space without compromising on performance. In the double deck concept there is one spacious owner cabin in the front, and a large and bright salon with an internal helm station with sea views. That is why this model is a perfect alternative to a traditional motoryacht which consumes tremendous amounts of fuel. The Double Deck catamarans have a chance to become superyachts of the future with their comfort on board and low fuel consumption resulting from its low draft and the possibility of cruising on sails in keeping with the maximum stability at all times.

The private yacht Sunreef 82 will accommodate up to 7 guests in one beam-wide owner suite, one VIP queen cabin and one guest twin cabin convertible to a double cabin with an additional Pullman bed, attended by two crew to assist the owner, a sailor himself. The vessel will feature the canoe type boom and carbon mast, Sunreef’s in-house speciality.

An innovative element aboard the superyacht Sunreef 82 DD is the smart mezzanine floor housing a coffee table within a lounge area located on the starboard side of the main deck within the dining area. There will also be a purpose-built storage area for painting equipment, as the owners enjoy this activity while sailing. This additional floor provides more space below decks for extended cabin or storage space. The main deck also includes a second lounge area and provides access to the crew hull on the port side and guest hull on the starboard side.

The owner suite, arranged over two floors, is set to occupy the entire forward section of the yacht with a master cabin, Spa Pool and gym on the main deck, and wardrobe and floor-to-ceiling storage and bathroom located below decks in port and starboard hulls respectively. The right corner of the master cabin includes LED-lit Spa Pool set on a two step platform, surrounded by an orchid jardinière, providing amazing sea views through beam-wide 180 degree panoramic windows. The treadmill, integrated within the floor, is positioned in the centre and a low Japanese-style king-size bed with two night tables occupies the left part of the suite.

Guest cabins are generously sized with three way access to a queen size bed with spectacular sea views through 6-part large windows, and have a separate bathroom and shower, spacious wardrobe, several lockers, a comprehensive entertainment system and air conditioning.

Interior design has been customised following the owners’ suggestions, and will combine light and natural colours and materials finished in a classic style.

There is additional space for a tender and a jet ski hidden in a purpose-built locker under the main sun pad in the cockpit. The spacious flybridge is fitted with the main helm station, bar with barbecue and ice maker, large dining table and comfortable deckchairs, as well as a coffee table.

The Sunreef 82 DD superyacht will be built of light high-tech composite materials that the shipyard introduced to construction in 2007, and is scheduled for launch in July 2012. The vessel’s sail plan includes private use only by the owners and their party in the Caribbean and the US.

Joachim Kinder designed refits for motor yacht SEARAZ (ex Alcor, Jimora)

April 03, 2012

Originally built by Amels and Porsius shipyard, to naval architecture by German Gerhard Gilgenast, motor yacht Alcor (now known as motor yacht Searaz) is preparing for her second refit since her launch in 1986. Joachim Kinder has been involved in her design since the very beginning, creating some of the yacht’s original exterior styling, such as the arch and the flybridge layout, including the pilot stand.

In 2004/2005 Alcor has been renamed to yacht Jimora, and underwent her first refit at the Lamda shipyard in Piraeus, Greece. For this refit J. Kinder Designs have created an extension in the aft section incorporating a closed flybridge area. In addition, new freestanding cantilever staircases were created leading from the main deck to the sun deck, as well as some new deck arrangement. As per the interior refit of the yacht, additional crew accommodation has been added to the aft, incorporating separation of female and male member areas. Finally, some decor modifications have been applied.

In 2010/2011, after Jimora was sold and became superyacht SEARAZ, Joachim Kinder was asked to plan her second refit. The new refit, which is yet to begin, will see an extension to the aft sun-deck and the integration of the tender stowage. The fly-bridge house has also been redesigned, incorporating a gymnasium and some additional changes to the deck arrangement. In addition, all of the interior of the motor yacht Searaz will be refurbished, whilst maintaining the original layout and furniture style.

The beautiful yacht Karia has been nominated in Interior Design Award, Exterior Design & Styling, Recreational Space Designed for Guest use and InteriorLayout categories.

The ShowBoats Design Awards was specifically devised to judge and recognise the designers responsible for the individual elements of a superyacht. Aspects of the most impressive yachts launched in the preceding calendar year are scrutinised and judged by a panel of design experts.

RMK Marine is delighted with this nomination which follows on from the recent selection of superyacht Karia as a finalist from numerous nominations in the hotly contested World Superyacht Awards.

Designed for the experienced yacht owner for long distance voyaging, Karia has been built to extremely high quality and specifications with long term low maintenance as a priority requirement. Particular attention has been given to ensure an efficient and sea kindly hull design, low vibration and noise and exceptional interior volume for a 45m yacht.

There are a number of features that separate this yacht from many others. The 500GT sized yacht, has an exceptional use of space to maximise comfort with light, airy and versatile spaces for up to 12 guests. The owners are afforded plenty of privacy on the master deck and the yacht incorporates a swimming platform aft and 2 tenders stored under the foredeck. RMK4500 motor yacht Karia is also for sale and visitors have been tremendously impressed with the design, content and the quality of construction.

RMK Marine has previously won several awards for yachts built at the yard. The beautiful 52m ketch Nazenin V was honoured with the Judges Special Commendation prize at the World Superyacht Awards in 2010 and the Vripack designed motor yacht Caressa K also won an International Superyacht Society award in 2006.

RMK Marine stated, “We are very proud that this beautiful yacht has been recognised in these categories and pleased that the judges also appreciated the superb quality and design of this elegant yacht”.

With the investments in its infrastructure and facilities as well as in its labour force RMK Marine has continued to raise the level of the Turkish superyacht construction industry. RMK Marine offer great quality and service whatever the structural material; from aluminium such as used for sailing yacht Nazenin V to steel & aluminium for motor yacht Karia or composites as used for the Oyster superyachts.

The winners of the 2012 awards will be announced during a glittering gala evening at the Monaco Opera House on June 22, in front of a VIP audience of yacht owners and industry professionals from around the globe.

70m Rossinavi Yacht NUMPTIA designed by Tommaso Spadolini and interior by Achille Salvagni

February 21, 2012

Launched in April, 2011, superyacht NUMTIA is a spectacular 70m vessel built by the prestigious Italian shipyard Rossinavi and rightfully one of the finalists in the 2012 World Superyacht Awards. Designed by Design Studio Spadolini, with elegant and immaculate interior design by Studio Salvagni, motor yacht NUMPTIA represents a truly unique luxury yacht with excellent interior and exterior spaces, accommodating 12 guests in 6 superbly furnished and luxurious staterooms.

The exterior design by Tommaso Spadolini of Design Studio Spadolini

In late spring 2007, the Florence based and internationally renowned designer Tommaso Spadolini was contacted by the Project Manager who requested a preliminary draft of a yacht measuring approximately 60 metres. Based on the absolute musts requested by the Owner, the designer has quickly realised that more than 60 metres were required to accommodate all of the features. Today, measuring 70 metres in length over all, motor yacht Numptia boats large common areas with ample spaces, as well as routes to and from the various areas, that are easy to navigate and guests cabins, in which natural light is present.

The Owner’s suite is a private haven, where the Owner or potential charter guests  can isolate themselves in order to work on business matters as well as spend moments of leisure and relaxation in privacy. The bridges are suitable for both formal and informal occasions, making Numptia suitable not only for private cruising but also for luxury yacht charter.

As per Spadolini’s description, superyacht Numptia is made of continuous longitudinal, vertical and transverse curved lines, lending softness to her profile, presenting her as an impressive 70m yacht,  not as a miniature replica of a ship. Returning Numptia’s point of contact to the sea was made possible by way of the gentle sloping of the bridges downwards, toward the water in a cascade of curves.

Thanks to his excellent relationship with the Rossinavi shipyard, Tommaso Spadolini was able to contributed to another stage of the yacht’s realisation. During the advanced stages of the construction, unable to find furniture and furnishings in keeping with the owner’s dream and suitable for many gentle intersecting curves, the Studio Spadolini have provided the shipyard with drawings and specifications for the construction of all sofas, seats, large and small tables, furnishings for the pantry, kitchen and bar, as well as several sun beds, which were then placed on various outdoor decks of the yacht.

Originally, luxury yacht Numptia was designed to be used only by the Owner’s family. Over the time enquiries were made and necessary changes applied in order for Numptia to become a successful charter yacht. The changes involved the necessity of revising the layout of the guest cabins to become more ‘democratic’. This is where Tommaso Spadolini introduced the well known Italian architect Achille Salvagni to the client, who then went on to design and style the interiors of this impressive and elegant superyacht.

The interior by Achille Salvagni from Salvagni Architetti

Achille Salvagni, Numptia’s interior designer, believes that an interior is not only designed for a Client, but also about the Client. Their narrative decorating is designed not to tell a story about the designer and his studio, but to convey the spirit of the Owner. It becomes a visage that illustrates the underlying unique personality of the Owner. Every project is a unique opportunity to take the Clients beyond their expectations. Good design does not begin with decorating but defining the architectural vocabulary of the space.

“My interiors are always defined by a sense of calm because I think there is a great beauty in simplicity and neutral rooms which reveal the sculptural qualities of furniture and objects.” Achille Salvagni

The studio never uses to separate different living areas in terms of use and architectural schemes, the designer always wishes the space to be a unique fluid where different purposes can be settled. Especially in very narrow and long space the definition always creates fragmentation and sense of confusion, that’s why they realised a unique lounge and wide area where different situation can be provided without interfering with the dignity of the space, where one can easily have a party with dancing people rather then receiving guests in a formal way. The big ceiling eye creates a sense of dynamism, which at the same time gives a big quietness.

Everybody needs memories, that’s why Salvagni always ensures that one is close to objects from a previous life, objects from the past and taken from different cultures: Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania as well, all melted together to create a perfect balance.

He continues to be inspired by the things that exist freely in our daily life: the quality of light, the colours of nature and the harmony in perfect proportions.

Furthermore he strongly believes  that pursuing the target of doing something unexpected and unorthodox, compared to the existing panorama is the key to success and to realise our vision of a more comfortable and charming way to live onboard.

Stunning design elements by Salvagni Architetti aboard luxury charter yacht Numptia

The idea during Numptia’s design was that the designers were going to try and keep a calm sense of pure design, creating monolithic spaces, delicately shaded with the use of closely matched colours and well-placed lighting accents.

Their passion for absence and naked truth of interiors is enhanced with added luxury and detailing. Simple lines and original materials.

The level of customisation makes Numptia noteworthy, the expertise comes through in every practical and organisational aspect of this yacht as well as in the décor, everything has been thought out carefully down to the last detail, setting aside as much space as possible for a comfortable staying.

Throughout Numptia, woods have been used to achieve an attractive contrast between dark and light elements, from dark ebony to beige bleached teak, the use of marble, stone, bronze and natural fabrics have all helped to create a welcoming atmosphere where the naturalness of the materials is foremost.

Each deck has its own personality, but they all fit harmoniously together to form a stylish whole, whose result is a dramatic sense of continuity, a precious wooden box which includes jewels pieces of furniture made of parchment, galuchat, glossy black ebony, bronze and Murano glass.

Rounded teak curves, instead of crown mouldings, ensure continuity between walls panelling and ceilings, all in bleached teak, just like the “poor luxury” of a Jean Michel Frank’s interior, to create a truly unique piece.

Conversation areas aboard superyacht Numptia are provided with sumptuous custom made sofas and armchairs upholstered with light coloured fabrics, this combination of colours and materials goes well with the warmth of the wall panelling, floor, beige carpeting and glossy dark ebony veneered doors.

Fluidity and sense of space are revealed in NUMTIA’S bar area, which is not just a corridor between main saloon and dining room, but is conceived as a nut shell, a place to stay comfortably. Covered with rhomboidal and curved teak panels, resulting from the geometry of the walls, creates a dramatic cave effect strengthened by a warm, soft light, shining down and filtered through several bronze caps in form of sea urchins. A leaf shaped cut in the ceiling provides a soft indirect light.

Visual axes and focal points have a major role in defining interior relationships on board Numtia. From main saloon, beyond the bar, a sliding door in German silver, tribute to one designer by the Milanese group of 30’s, is a screen, which allows to have a view on the focal point represented by a stone carved relief on the dining wall and a glittering table placed in front of it. Another focal point is the bath tub, carved in stone and its background in marble, placed in front of the bed of the master stateroom. A sliding door, again, in precious custom lacquered panels allows to create a unique space and view.

The same is true for the ebony fireplace mantel in Bridge deck saloon and the elliptical shape on the ceiling which dominates the space.

Bridge and Upper Deck are designed to accommodate a considerable number of guests in various areas for entertainment and relaxation. Guests have a SPA area at their disposal overlooking a sea terrace, which includes a fitness gymnasium, sauna, massage room and hammam. Indeed sports, recreation and well-being areas play a major role on board the  70m Rossinavi yacht Numptia.

This stunning 70m Rossinavi built superyacht NUMPTIA is powered by twin 3516 B DITA-SCAC Caterpillar engines, reaching a top speed of over 16 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. Her large tanks hold 200,000 litres of fuel and 40,000 litres of water that allow her to have a long cruising range.

Thanks to a large number of challenging concepts and flawless construction demanded  by her Owner, who has consistently built at Heesen, the shipyard have successfully realised a yacht with some extremely accomplished shipbuilding. One particular example is the metallic red paintwork specially formulated in honour of the Owner’s Montemaggio Merlot vineyard, while the radical ‘eye’ concept in the master suite includes not only full-height windows but also technically challenging glass bulwarks to create panoramic infinity views.

Perhaps one of the most exciting focal points of the motor yacht Quinta Essentia is the 7,000 litre main deck Spa Pool pool, featuring a pressurised water fall though 3,000 one-millimetre holes drilled into a 3 metre length of polished stainless steel embedded into the deck-head. Such is the pressure of the falling water that it can be used as a screen for projecting films. Surely, a feature that many charter guests would truly appreciate.

In addition, Heesen yachts have built a  wet dock to house the 25 foot limousine tender, allowing guests to simply walk aboard the tender with ease. With the same colour scheme as Quinta Essentia, the Vripack designed yacht tender was custom built in New Zealand by Vaudrey Miller.

Moving onto the sun-deck, Quinta Essentia offers unlimited possibilities for those seeking active relaxation or luxurious beauty treatments. The entire deck is dedicated to health and beauty, including a fully-equipped Technogym, sauna, steam room and professional treatment salon. Quinta Essentia’s charter guests can unwind between sessions in a circular television lounge with spectacular views and sea-grass panelling designed by Michela Reverberi. Located on the same deck is the second Spa Pool, sunbathing areas and a large al fresco dining terrace.

The sky-lounge features two distinctive circular saloons surrounded by curved full-height windows that open out to side balconies and the aft deck. Heesen’s ability to work with the most challenging briefs is clearly reflected in the complex installation of a baby grand piano and the fireplace located in the forward television lounge.

A sumptuous dining saloon was positioned within the second circular area of the upper deck. The entire main deck was then dedicated to a vast open-plan lounge, featuring exceptional style and flawless build quality.

Pearlised panelling required over twenty layers of lacquer sprayed and hand rubbed to produce the desired effect. The degree of installation difficulty was increased by the design requiring extremely fragile Macassar ceiling bands that continue down the full height of the wall. Custom-engineered Ad Notam black mirror plasma screens were seamlessly fitted within the Macassar cabinets.

Heesen motor yacht Quinta Essentia provides accommodation to twelve guests in six elegant, unique and highly personalised cabins. The master suite spreads over almost 100 square metres on the main deck. It is set within a concave cocoon of glass and opens out on both sides to a full-length private balcony. A ceiling height of over 2 metres emphasises the size of the suite. Walk-in wardrobes, an additional double cabin and a private office create the atmosphere of an entire apartment dedicated to the Owner.

Superyacht Quinta Essentia offers an individual customised control pad each, which allows her guests to operate the entire entertainment system: blinds, lighting and even crew communications.

Guests suites provide the same degree of luxury and detailing as is evident in the rest of Quinta Essentia. Superbly planned, the convertible, full-beam VIP, double and twin cabins on the lower deck open directly onto a central lift lobby therefore maximising the size of each cabin.

Beds and furniture are all set on plinths giving the impression that they are floating. The less the furniture sits on the floor, the greater the atmosphere of light and space. It is preferable but more difficult to build cabins this way – that is why Quinta Essentia superyacht is a Heesen.

Moving onto the bridge is where Quinta Essentia yacht offers touch sensitive optical glass console. Balancing weight, power and performance, MTU V20 engines were installed. Following the beliefs that the quality of crew areas directly affects their efficiency, Heesen Yachts built Quinta Essentia to exceed the latest MCA regulations for crew accommodation.

Initial concepts for luxury yacht Quinta Essentia by Ken Freivokh:

As seen on the images below, Quinta Essentia’s initial concept proposals were very bold, making use of glass, structural composites, full integration of cantilevered furniture with ceiling and bulkhead features; a full relationship between furniture and the envelope of the yacht. As Ken Freivokh said himself: “Most certainly, not the more traditional situation of creating a room, and then dropping some furniture in!”

“Such structural integration was designed to create an exciting and dynamic interior, very well suited to the nature of the lightweight performance yacht, and ran through all the elements of the space, from floors to ceilings to bulkheads, panelling and furniture.”

When asked about the main aspects taken into consideration when designing the interior layout of Quinta Essentia, Ken Freivokh replied: ” In relation to chartering, my view is that a designer charged with creating an interior intended for both private use and for chartering has two choices: to recommend that such interior follows standard and accepted layouts, such that nobody chartering could possibly be offended by the unusual or extreme; or to create something which is indeed unique, exciting, special – so special indeed that it becomes one of the strong reasons why the yacht is sought after, as it offers a totally unique experience, which cannot be matched by other yachts of similar size.”

Interior design developed by Michela Reverberi

The extremely attractive and conceptual interior design of the vessel is contemporary and futuristic, featuring an intimate atmosphere that is not too stark. The inspiration for Michela Reverberi’s interior design work was ‘Quinta Essentia’ – the fifth element – which is the highest synthesis of the four elements. These four elements – Earth, Water, Air and Fire – are represented in the four guest suites, while the Owner’s suite with the silver colour palate synthesises them all. The fifth element theme of Quinta Essentia yacht is integrated subtly into the design through details, colours and patterns, which are displayed against an absolute and pure white background.
