JFA Yachts announces its participation in International Multihull Boat Show

April 14, 2015

From April 15 to 19, the prominent French shipyard, JFA Yachts, will be present at the International Multihull Boat Show 2015, running in La Grande Motte, South of France. The event is of a great importance for the company, which aims to become one of the main players of the 2-hull superyacht market.

Salon multicoque 2015

Last year saw the company launch the first of its semi-custom catamarans – the Long Island 85’ charter yacht WindQuest, that has had a huge success on the luxury yacht charter market. The all-new Long Island 100’ yacht is also in build, designed to cruise far and in maximum comfort.

JFA Yachts’ Long Island catamarans boast revolutionary arrangement with the master cabin positioned on fore wet deck. The cabin provides spectacular views and direct access on the fore deck.

JFA Yachts has also constructed such breath-taking custom large catamarans as the glass/epoxy-built 85’ charter yacht Rose of Jericho or the carbon/epoxy-built 110’ superyacht mousetrap. Last September saw the company unveil a 115’ Power catamaran concept in partnership with Peugeot Design Lab. This striking vessel could represent the future of the motor yachts.

Newly refitted 120’ catamaran VITALIA II (ex Orange 2) to be launched by Multiplast on April 17, 2015

April 13, 2015

French builder, Multiplast, is to launch the newly refitted 120-foot catamaran Vitalia II (ex Orange 2) on Friday, April 17, 2015. Purchased by François Bich in February 2014, sailing yacht Vitalia II will hit the water following a one-year refit and 30,000 hours of work.

A real renaissance

In February 2014, François Bich purchased Orange 2 with the vision of transforming it from a racing boat into a cruiser.

A year later, the Multiplast team will proceed to the launch of superyacht Vitalia II which – lest it be forgotten – has broken the Atlantic and Mediterranean records, the 24-hour distance record, as well as won the prestigious Jules Verne Trophy with Bruno Peyron and his team. Thus, this transformation is a real renaissance for a boat, which, 10 years later, still holds the third fastest time for the mythical journey around the world.

An exceptional boat

It has been a difficult exercise to convert a multihull built and designed to beat records into a cruising catamaran. One has to keep in mind the spirit of the original boat, retaining its DNA while, of course, making the necessary changes. It was therefore out of question to overweigh the boat by adding an oversized central pod between the two hulls. It was important to find a compromise that would allow the boat to keep its speed.

Superyacht Vitalia II - New Website

Superyacht Vitalia II – New Website

For Yann Penfornis: “Our work was concerned with inserting a living space without disturbing – too much – the line of the boat. The space contains a kitchen-bar, the main cabin and an outdoor living area, with all the equipment of comfort you can expect on a cruising boat of this size without increasing – again, too much – the weight.

To sail safely under the original righting moment all of the standing rigging has been equipped with load cells. In this way the crew members are aware at all-times of the loads applied to the yacht structure and can sail safely at high speed. The project’s unique interest lies, says Jack Michal, one of the architects involved in the building of the original boat with Gilles Ollier and Franck Martin, in “creating an exceptional boat, the fastest cruising boat in the world.”

Vitalia II yacht’s programme

The sea trials of luxury yacht Vitalia II will start just after the launch and will run over one month. The boat captain, Vladimir Dzalba Lyndis, a former Bruno Peyron crew member who sailed on both Orange catamarans in the year 2000, will take the boat to the Mediterranean sea. A website has just been created and will be online on the 15th of april that will allow everyone to know in detail the story of the refit, and follow the boat around the world.

Original design of Kingship motor yacht KingCAT 85 refined by ER Yacht Design

April 07, 2015

ER Yacht Design of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, has refined the original design of motor yacht KingCAT 85 for Kingship Marine of Hong Kong. Comfortably sleeping eight guests and a crew of two members, superyacht KingCAT 85 is a spacious catamaran, now available in two distinct versions, one with an open fly bridge and second with fully enclosed, air- conditioned fly bridge, both with the aft sun deck and Jacuzzi. The brief by Kinship was to produce minimalist styling with clean lines and a boat with big yacht features, a fast comfortable cruiser but very manoeuvrable and easy to handle at sea and in marina.

Original design of Kingship motor yacht KingCAT 85 refined by ER Yacht Design

Original design of Kingship motor yacht KingCAT 85 refined by ER Yacht Design

Super yacht KingCAT 85 is an all-aluminium yacht with powerful twin hulls, pleasing shear lines with a modern neat looking superstructure enveloped in panoramic windows all around the main deck accommodation and the fly bridge with commanding views of the whole boat. The exterior profile features sleek streamlined hulls with plumb stems and a long waterline for speed and efficient carving in the seaway. The propulsion is twin diesels powering water-jets with a maximum speed of 28 knots, which, in combination with bow thrusters, will provide exceptional manoeuvrability.

The deck space is maximised using the full 31ft beam available, the leisure area is covered in teak decking fitted with flush glass hatches for natural light below. Aft, the space between hulls and under the spacious cockpit deck is used to neatly store the tender covered by a permanent swim platform, which, together with platforms on each hull makes a spacious beach club, a feature normally found on much larger yachts. The access to the main deck is from the platforms on each hull, via steps leading to the cockpit; the steps cleverly doubling as engine covers giving unrestricted access for maintenance.

The accommodation is arranged over the main deck all on one level and below in the twin hulls, the latter ones mirroring each other in layout. The owner’s stateroom is on the main deck to the front giving it immediate access to the salon and by stairs to the pilothouse station, whilst the glass door to the front of the stateroom open directly onto the fore sundeck.

The main accommodation is divided into four distinct areas, a dining room seating eight in comfort, served from a fully fitted well-equipped galley with a full size six-burner stove and oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, icemaker, wine cellar and plenty of storage cupboards. The galley is fronted by a neat cocktail bar ideal for serving aperitifs and snacks and to service rest of the boat. The leisure areas are arranged in two sections over the full width of the accommodation and includes games and entertainment area and a quiet relaxation area open to the cockpit, looking aft.

Amid-ship are port and starboard stairways leading to the respective hull’s lower deck accommodation, each leading into a lobby and self-contained en suite double cabins, to the fore and aft of the hulls. The below deck accommodation has over 2 metres headroom throughout and gets plenty of natural light from large oblong portholes in the hull and from the overhead opaque glass hatches. All cabins are air conditioned for comfort, whilst the engine compartments are acoustically insulated. Both main deck and the lower deck accommodation layout is flexible and can be customised to clients’ preference, providing it doesn’t require structural modification of the yacht. The interior styling, fixtures and fittings use only a high quality natural materials and fabrics, which also can be customised to clients’ taste and style.

The fly bridge is reached from the cockpit by stairs to the port side leading immediately to the relaxation area with a plush outdoor L-shape sofa and a large Jacuzzi to starboard flanked by sunbeds on one side and a large grill bar to the other side. To the front is the centrally located fly bridge steering position with a commanding view of the whole boat and a step or two away from the port and starboard end of the bridge with the wing controls stations and a perfect view of each hull when docking. A Bimini hardtop supported by twin masts covers the fly bridge, carrying radar, communication dome, antennae and other obligatory equipment.

The alternative is a fully enclosed fly bridge version with panoramic glass windows and full height glass sliding doors to the aft sundeck. The enclosed fly bridge is fully air-conditioned and can be reached externally by stairs from the cockpit on the main deck or directly from the salon below by a spiral staircase. Aft of the centrally positioned steering station is a generous sun lounge with a cocktail bar and two L-shaped sofas and coffee tables. A round-shaped Jacuzzi can be located amid-ship on the sundeck with a perfect view of the cockpit and the beach club below. Altogether, a spacious yacht with plenty of room and space for leisure and entertainment, a perfect cruising yacht and a party boat in a marina.

New 71m catamaran mega yacht MANIFESTO concept by VPLP

March 27, 2015

French-based naval architects and designers, VPLP Design, are proud to introduce their new 71,4-metre catamaran mega yacht MANIFESTO concept. Luxury motor yacht MANIFESTO is an efficient and highly stable vessel, capable of crossing oceans, but agile and shallow-drafted enough to enter small places.

71m catamaran mega yacht Manifesto concept by VPLP

71m catamaran mega yacht Manifesto concept by VPLP

Superyacht MANIFESTO concept embodies the French word: “respire”, which means to breathe, relax, unwind, rejuvenate and live harmoniously again. This is reflected in the elegantly muted styling and ultra-open layout affording great vistas and private places throughout the vessel.

Superyacht Manifesto concept from above

Superyacht Manifesto concept from above

VPLP believe that only a catamaran can offer the right answer to this expectation – providing luxury of space, stability and low running costs.

Luxury yacht Manifesto concept - aft view

Main characteristics of the 71m super yacht MANIFESTO concept:

  • Openness inside the vessel as well as out. Light flows from everywhere. Openness is an attitude VPLP wished to capture and is reflected in the design.

  • Luxury of space. Each particular area is designed to suite a special moment of the day. Offering privacy and conviviality for everybody on board.

    Motor yacht Manifesto concept - Terrace

  • Different propulsion modes privileging range and autonomy rather than speed. According to VPLP quality of time and comfort are more important than high max-speed.

    Super yacht Manifesto concept - Main Deck Saloon

  • A full collection of tools to wonder above and below the sea: large tenders, submarine, sailing boats… Catamarans provide so many more options.

    Manifesto yacht concept - Owners Cabin

    Manifesto yacht concept – Owners Cabin

  • A full deck reserved for technical areas for easy external access, maintenance and reliability. Making for an efficient workflow and a happy and unobtrusive crew.

Lastly, VPLP believe designed elegance is not only a question of style, balance of proportion and harmony of lines it is also related to coherence and cleverness. Don’t we use the word “elegant” for a smart solution to a problem? Despite her length VPLP want MANIFESTO superyacht concept not to appear dominant and powerful – they want a sweet giant who we can all love.

New 164′ Explorer superyacht concept developed by JFA Yachts

JFA Yachts is building or refitting both custom sailing yachts and custom motor yachts from 70’ to 200’ either monohulls or multihulls. Experienced in Aluminium, Steel & Composite (including carbon), JFA Yachts already built many different yachts. More known for sailing yachts at its beginning, JFA Yachts is building motor yachts. Boats such as superyacht Zeepaard, motor yacht Bystander and charter yacht Axantha II are Explorer boats that sailed a lot.

JFA Yachts has recently developed a 164’ New Explorer yacht new style, contemporary outside but also inside. This motor yacht, equipped with a diesel electric propulsion which combines fuel efficiency and low noise level, has been developed with Bill Dixon Design, as Naval Architect and the interior designer Franck Darnet Design. But this motor yacht is not radically modern: her low profile with classic lines and her nice bow shape make her timeless.

Sunreef 74 sailing yacht WildBerry successfully completes her first Atlantic crossing

March 20, 2015

WildBerry yacht left the Sunreef Shipyard in February 2015 after undergoing a number of sea trials and technical tests on the Baltic Sea. She is the first unit from the Sunreef 74 line and was launched just 7 months from finalization of its contract. This model is characterized by her spacious interiors (over 240 m2 of the total living space including 35m2 fully open saloon with a panoramic view, master cabin, exclusive guest cabins and a galley down), vertical bows and easy maneuverability by only 2 people thanks to its fully automatic sails system.

After sailing 6000 nm on sailing yacht WildBerry, the first brand new Sunreef 74 behaved extremely well in all wind conditions. The 210 sqm Code 0 and the 470 sqm spinnaker allowed the crew to continue sailing while most of other catamarans would have started their engine long before. Moreover, with wind below 10 knots, the two 240 hp yanmar engines allow the boat to exceed most of competitors’ range” – said Adrien Jousset, Sunreef 74 line constructor and Naval Architect from Sunreef Yachts.
