September 24, 2014

Sunreef showcases one of its power novelties that arrives in Turkey straight from the Cannes Yachting Festival. 60 Sunreef Power yacht Ocean’s 11 is a stunning azure hulled catamaran with a brand new layout. Especially upon the client`s request, Sunreef’s interior design team prepared a “tailor made” project of this power model with a semi-open saloon combined with the lounge area and bar instead of the interior navigation station. The concept of the 60 Sunreef Power was introduced in response to the growing demand for compact yet highly impressive powerboats. This yacht has all the features of the popular 70 Sunreef Power (example is charter yacht Damrak II), except its slightly smaller 27.8 ft / 8.5 m beam that makes it more convenient for crowded marinas.

During the event, the visitors also have the opportunity to meet Radek Pstrokonski, who is the Sales Director in Sunreef Yachts and discuss the company’s latest projects. Sunreef cordially invites you to the International Istanbul Boat Show – Marinturk City Port – A Pontoon # 16.

Horizon to Showcase Four Luxury Motor Yachts at FLIBS 2014

September 23, 2014

Horizon Yachts is proud to announce that they will debut the Horizon PC52 power catamaran “Pomboo” and display the E88 motor yacht “Missing Card III,” PC60 power catamaran “Sanctuary” as well as the 2007 Horizon 85’ motor yacht “Nine Stars” at the 2014 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), running in the fantastic Florida yacht charter location – Fort Lauderdale from October 30 to November 3. All yachts will be available to view at the Horizon Yacht USA display on Bahia Mar F Dock, slips 600-604.

Born out of the success of the Horizon PC60 model, the PC52 retains the signature modern lines, large interior volume, high-quality finish, and sea-keeping abilities of the PC series; hulls one Hull two “Pomboo” features a 22’ beam and standard three-stateroom layout below deck, and the main deck offers a galley with breakfast bar, salon, and storage.  The exterior areas are dedicated to entertaining, with a helm and dinette on the open bridge and an expansive aft deck area with a dinette and wet bar.

One of four Horizon E88 motoryachts sold in the U.S. this summer, “Missing Card III” was originally slated to be an inventory yacht for Horizon Yacht USA but was purchased by the owner near the end of her build.  Per her new owner’s request, this E88 offers three guest staterooms, including an enlarged master suite, and crew quarters are located aft of the engines.  Her 21’ beam and total 94’ LOA gave the owners room to add some additional custom features, such as a desk in the pilothouse as well as a seating area and bar on the aft flybridge, and they worked with Horizon’s in-house design team on personalizing the interior décor.  This is also the first Horizon E88 motoryacht in the U.S. that incorporates a flexible beach club area at the back, complete with a hydraulic garage door and Hi/Lo swim platform, and she is equipped with CAT C32 1800 HP engines, zero speed stabilizers, bow/stern thrusters, and more.  The Horizon 85’ motoryacht “Nine Stars” was built in 2007 and offers four guest staterooms; aft crew quarters; zero speed stabilizers; CAT 1925HP engines and enclosed bridge.

“Sanctuary” is hull nine of the Horizon PC60 power catamaran model and was also built for U.S. owners who plan to cruise her in the Bahamas and Florida.  She features the standard three-stateroom layout with an on-deck master, and her open bridge and spacious aft deck are ideal for island traveling, a popular past-time for this power catamaran model.

BMT Nigel Gee to launch motor yacht Project L3 at this week’s Monaco Yacht Show

September 22, 2014

BMT Nigel Gee, a subsidiary of the BMT Group, is pleased to announce the launch of their latest innovative motor yacht ‘Project L3’ at this week’s Monaco Yacht Show. Building on Nigel Gee’s heritage in the development of specialized platforms, married with Rob McPherson’s appetite for styling something a little bit different to the norm, the bold superyacht Project L3 concept is maintaining the exceptional standard that has come to be expected from BMT concept design partnerships.

BMT Nigel Gee superyacht Project L3

Luxury yacht Project L3 design is based around delivering an extreme of high speed and high volume, for which BMT’s semi-SWATH catamaran is ideal. On a length overall of 85m the design provides over 4200 GT, a figure more akin to a 100-110m monohull. Such space allows for entertainment and living areas similar to land based architecture and includes some unique features such as the main accommodation opening straight onto the pool courtyard. The sundeck sports an open-air fire pit surrounded by generous loungers which give perfect viewing for the giant drop-down cinema screen. A feature that is sure to be the main focus of evening entertainment. The large beam of the catamaran also allows for storage of an oversized tender including an offshore racing cat and a two-man seaplane. Once deployed, these can be moored against a number of fold-down/extendable beach decks giving easy access to the water.

A number of propulsion options have been investigated from a conventional system for 20 knot performance to a hybrid CODAG system delivering over 40 knots. The semi-SWATH catamaran resulting from BMT’s development programmes in the naval and offshore industries provides a careful balance of advanced catamaran performance with the outstanding seakeeping ability of a traditional SWATH.

James Roy, Design Director at BMT comments, “This was both a very exciting and challenging proposal to work on as the styling needed to reflect the speed of the vessel while maintaining a high volume for the interior. Gentle flowing lines which have a sense of urgency about them have been combined with a bold colour choice to ensure that this 85m, high performance catamaran makes a statement in the harbour!”

James Roy, continues, “It is always refreshing to work on a design which challenges convention and to integrate technology developed in other markets, it will take a visionary client to realise the project.”

Claydon Reeves and BMT Nigel Gee unveil motor yacht Project Chuan

September 18, 2014

As a showcase of progressive design, Claydon Reeves and BMT Nigel Gee are delighted to unveil the all-new motor yacht Project Chuan. Claydon Reeves will be exhibiting a model of superyacht Project Chuan at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show on their stand – DG3 on the Quai Jarlan.

Developed from the earlier collaboration on the Oxygen superyacht project in 2012 the two companies have re-evaluated both the style, layout and underlying technical platform, based on BMT’s Extreme Semi-SWATH (XSS) advanced catamaran hull-form.

The design is anchored in Asian architecture and traditions without generic Western mis-interpretation. The layout can be adjusted to function either as an impressive social space or a more intimate family based environment with a spacious full beam master cabin aft on the bridge deck. Large sections of glass in the main deck floor allow occupants a unique view between the hulls, particularly when lit up at night. An articulated beach area and dive club unfolds at water level, bridging the space between the two hulls and creating an unprecedented width of over 15m.

James Claydon, Director of Claydon Reeves commented, “We returned to the catamaran platform for Chuan for the sheer volume it delivers. Throughout the yacht there are spaces of surprising size, be it the expansive foredeck or the huge open-plan galley and dining area.”

BMT’s XSS hull-form has now been fully proven in the demanding offshore energy industry where speed and sea-keeping ability are critical to operations. A second XSS is currently under construction in Holland with ever larger variants under design development at BMT’s Southampton based office.

James Roy, Yacht Design Director at BMT Nigel Gee concluded, “Owners, and indeed our wider industry, are quite traditional in the choice of hull-form. It would be nice to see a greater take-up of multihull platforms.

Our XSS provides the best compromise between performance and sea-keeping ability for a high speed catamaran and Claydon Reeves have demonstrated with Project Chuan just how that volume can be put to use for dramatic effect.”

Sunreef Yachts presents Hydrofoil System for Luxury Open Power Catamarans at Cannes Yachting Festival

September 18, 2014

Last week saw Sunreef Yachts introduce a revolutionary Hydrofoil concept during its Annual Press Conference at the 2014 Cannes Yachting Festival. As the Sunreef’s naval architects developed a system of retractable hydrofoils that would enable beautiful Sunreef units to reach a top speed of up to 70 knots, such a meeting was the best opportunity to share their knowledge in public.

First luxury open power catamaran with hydrofoil system

First luxury open power catamaran with hydrofoil system

The first model fitted with hydrofoils will be the Sunreef 40 H – a 40-feet motor catamaran of an open type. The unit will be lifted out of the water, which significantly decreases drag, consequently allowing for greater speeds. Thanks to the stability of two independent hulls, the unit is perfectly balanced, so there is no need to use any complicated stabilizing systems. The passengers as well as the crew members are provided with extraordinary comfort and safety even at large speeds. The innovative hydrofoil system gives the power catamaran Owners the best opportunity to fully exploit the potential offered by their yacht.

One of the main points of the event was additionally a presentation of a brand new sailing catamaran model – the Sunreef 74 with the innovative carbon mast construction. This spacious unit can be easily handled by only 2 people. The customization and space arrangement possibilities are truly unlimited. Not long before the official presentation, 4 models of this impressive catamaran were sold.

The participants had also a possibility to experience the GRAND PREMIERE of two NEWLY launched power catamarans – the 60 ft and the 70 ft – both with custom interior solutions of open and semi-open saloons and the first 70 Sunreef Power yacht 1 Life with the Volvo IPS System.

The conference hosted three very special guests, all famous sailors and multihull experts: Lauren Bourgnon, Steve Ravussin and Yvan Ravussin, who shared their opinions on the key features of catamarans and their knowledge with Sunreef`s units. Additionally, among speakers, there was Robert Blazejak – the Chief Concept Designer in Sunreef Yachts and Patrick Raub – the Sunreef Yachts Expert.

SUPREME COMFORT ABOARD

Putting the pleasure of life to the fore, the Sunreef 74 yacht model has reached a supreme level of sophistication offering an impressive 35m² saloon with a breathtaking 360° view. Elegant, modern, with its bright interiors, this yacht’s layout is entirely customizable.

The Sunreef 74 also features huge interior storage space, which makes her perfect for lengthy cruises, requiring additional food and equipment supplies.

EASY HANDLING & HIGH PERFORMANCE

Luxury yacht Sunreef 74 can be comfortably manoeuvred by two people in all offshore conditions, which, for instance, makes her ideal for couples sailing around the word, with little to no crew. I addition, all sails are handled from the flybridge navigation station. The mast aft has been moved as to allow the use of large head sails, providing more power and balance in reaching conditions. The boat’s long hulls and sporty lines increase the speed under sails and the self-tacking jib makes navigation even easier. Spinning the wheel is all that is left to do, the rest is automatic.

The mast, boom, crossbeams and even the tender lifting arms are built in carbon, which makes the Sunreef 74 Evolution light and quick, while remaining stable. The very first unit launched will also feature a carbon furling boom which will make all manoeuvres even easier.

The Sunreef 74 yacht has a short 7-month delivery time.

“Every unit of sailing 74 ft catamaran will be built with the greatest perfection by the industries best craftsman on a custom-built basis constantly meeting expectations of the most demanding clientèle.”

Oxygene Yachts Air range to be presented at this month’s Cannes Yachting Festival

September 03, 2014

Oxygene Yachts is delighted to announce that their Air range will be unveiled at this month’s Cannes Yachting Festival, running in the fantastic Mediterranean yacht charter destination – Cannes from September 9 to 14, 2014. The company will be on hand at Espace Riviera – Stand 061.

Superyacht AIR 99 by Oxygene Yachts - Profile

An extraordinary project

In September 2013, Oxygène Yachts presented its Air 77 yacht prototype at Cannes: a power catamaran with an exceptional design challenging old habits in the industry and establishing a new idea of space and fluidity of movement.

In addition to its highly characteristic design, the luxury yacht Air 77 also attracted attention for its huge 33 sq ft door cut into the front of the roof: a move away from the traditional way of separating indoor and outdoor space. The result offers an entirely unobstructed space and view on the main deck.

Since then, Oxygène Yachts has signed a partnership agreement with Couach Shipyard for the construction of the definitive version. This model will be presented to the press and public for trials during Spring 2015.

But Oxygène Yachts didn’t just stop there. During the course of 2014, the brand has expanded by adding three new models to form a well-balanced range of 66 to 99 foot boats. Three new worthy representatives of the Oxygène spirit will be presented at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival.

Spirit of OXYGENE : purity and discretion… a unique stance

The remarkable design of Oxygène Yachts sprung from designer Frédéric Sarfati’s strong determination: to breathe new aesthetic inspiration into the universe of power catamarans. This inspiration is driven by the relentless quest for pure lines and on-board space. A quest for subtlety and balance that allows the boat to blend into its surrounding environment.

AIR 77 Yacht - Profile

AIR 77 Yacht - Profile© Oxygene Yachts

The result is impressive: a highly characteristic design rendered timeless by the simplicity of its lines. The name of the range does justice to this notion of space and movement: AIR.

Nothing glitzy or ostentatious about the Air boat range.

AIR range: harmony and sensuality

The lightness of the models in the Air range, made with strip planking (wood/epoxy and glass/carbon composite), their shallow draught and Ultrajet/Masterjet turbine engines give them a major technical advantage: they are incredibly easy to handle. They get as close as possible to the coastline, and weave easily in and out of small bays and creeks, even the most imposing models of the line!

The choice of engines goes towards defining the brand’s spirit, with a intentionally restricted top speed for each model and very reasonable fuel consumption.

AIR 77 Yacht - Saloon

AIR 77 Yacht - Saloon© Oxygene Yachts

The Air 66 yacht is the most compact boat in the range. With all the characteristics of the Air 77, it is even easier to handle and takes up less space when docked. With 2152 sq ft of living space for a length of just 66 feet, life onboard the Air 66 centres around the “carré” which alone offers an area of 645 sq ft for sharing enjoyable moments. With its glass roof and front opening, the view from the stern reveals a 52 ft perspective in the axis of the boat and an unbroken view of the horizon.

As a development on the Air 77 yacht, the Air 77 W yacht essentially presents aesthetical variations: raised bulwarks, remodelled hulls and deck, dingy integrated under the main deck… It illustrates all the design and variation opportunities of a concept that Frédéric Sarfati’s brush stroke adapts to each client’s individual desires.

AIR 77 Yacht - Cabin

Air 99 – the No-limit yacht. At the very least the 99 foot superyacht Air 99 is out of the ordinary, offering six cabins and 4305 sq ft of living space! While maintaining the harmony inherent to the concept of the AIR range, this boat makes its mark with an impression of outrageous serenity and sensuality. The 1292 sq ft “carré” designed in the style of a loft offers a unique sensation of freedom. The 88 foot perspective unfolds uninterrupted towards the horizon through the vast doorway at the front, suggesting an invitation to escape offered by no other boat today.

INNOVATION: variable transparency glass

To fit out the glass roofs present on each model in the AIR range, Oxygène Yachts looked at integrating variable transparency glass, a revolution in the nautical sector that finally makes it possible for widespread use of bay windows with no fear of adverse effects from the sun.

The double glazing becomes darker or brighter according to the amount of sunlight thanks to an electronic process incorporated into the glass. At the heart of this process is an electrochromatic coating and a low voltage current making it possible to constantly adapt the tint of the glass to variations in sunlight. The more sunlight there is, the more the glass darkens. It restricts light transmission and limits heat generation. When sunlight is weak, the transparent glass allows the light in, optimising the beneficial effects of the solar flux.

AIR 77 W Yacht

Controlling the lightness level is as simple as the touch of a button on the wall. It can also be done automatically with a light intensity sensor.

By using variable transparency glass, the Air concept and its vast curved windows maximizing light takes on its true meaning.
