Once in the water, Viking’s Joe Snodgrass took bow and stern waterline measurements to mark for freeboard heights, while the dip in the basin helped establish the location for the waterline striping.

Launch of 43m sailing yacht COLUMBIA at Eastern Shipbuilding

August 28, 2014

Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. is thrilled to announce the recent launch of the 43-metre sailing yacht COLUMBIA, a steel hull replica of the historic Gloucester Fishing Schooner. The launching of superyacht COLUMBIA took place at Eastern’s Nelson Street facility in Florida’s Panama City on August 23, 2014 and was attended by employees, dignitaries, as well as guests.

On April 17, 1923, the original COLUMBIA was launched in Essex, Massachusetts. Ninety-one years later, an exact replica of the COLUMBIA (ESG Hull 981) was launched in Panama City, Florida.

At the christening ceremony, Brian D’Isernia spoke about the journey of bringing the super yacht COLUMBIA back to life, the teamwork of the companies, and thanked the hard work of the men and women that made this dream possible. Steve Southerland, U.S.

Representative of the 2nd District of Florida, spoke about the teamwork and dedication of putting together a vessel like the COLUMBIA yacht. Father Roy Marien of Saint John’s Catholic Church of Panama City, Florida, performed the blessing of the vessel. Brian’s wife, Mimi D’Isernia had the honor of christening the COLUMBIA.

The original COLUMBIA was a 141’ classic Gloucester Fishing Schooner built at the historic A.D. Story shipyard of Essex, Massachusetts. Essex was the center for North American Fishing Schooner construction. Designed by the innovative William Starling Burgess, the COLUMBIA was bred for speed. In the fall of 1923, the COLUMBIA challenged the BLUENOSE, Canada’s legendary schooner in the International Fishermen’s Cup Races in Halifax. Nearly winning the title, the COLUMBIA was narrowly defeated by the BLUENOSE and was one of the few American schooners to provide a challenge to BLUENOSE.

Tragedy struck the promising young COLUMBIA on August 24, 1927 near Sable Island, the notorious “Graveyard of the Atlantic”, where the COLUMBIA was lost with all hands in a gale. Decades later, Brian D’Isernia, owner of Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. in Panama City, Florida, discovered the original lines plan of the COLUMBIA in the Essex Shipbuilding Museum in Massachusetts. He took the opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of bringing a significant piece of maritime history back to life. Drawn by her proud history and her beauty, Brian began the journey of bringing the COLUMBIA back to life, and returning her to the glory she deserves.

Working with John W. Gilbert & Associates of Boston, Massachusetts, the design was re-engineered with a steel hull instead of wood. An engine room and staterooms were added to the design. Covey Island Boatworks of Linenburg Nova Scotia built the rigging and spars. Blocks were fabricated by A. Dauphinee & Sons and all the sails were constructed by Michelle Stevens Sailloft, LTD, both from the Second Peninsula, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. Teak decking was completed by Teakdecking Systems of Florida.

Luxury yacht COLUMBIA will continue to undergo outfitting and begin sailing trials this fall. She will also be exhibited at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show October 30th – November 3rd, 2014.

Sunrise Yachts launches new 45m motor yacht Project SUNSET (Hull #182)

August 25, 2014

Five years after delivering motor yacht ‘Africa’, Sunrise Yachts is proud to confirm the launch of her sister ship, the brand new 45-metre motor yacht Project Sunset (Hull #182). Superyacht Project Sunset (Hull #182) hit the water in Turkey’s Antalya last week. The yacht’s name will remain confidential until delivery to her North-American client, scheduled for next month.

Second Sunrise 45m super yacht Project Sunset (Hull no. 182)

Second Sunrise 45m super yacht Project Sunset (Hull no. 182)

The Sunrise 45m super yacht Project Sunset is a three-deck, deep-sea, full displacement, transatlantic, steel hull and aluminium superstructure luxury motor yacht, built to operate for private use or luxury yacht charter in all seas and oceans of the world.

The Project Sunset yacht’s main characteristics include large volumes at 499 Gross Tons, excellent deck heights, great stability, comfort and seaworthiness, very low levels of sound and vibration, an affective layout, and extreme fuel efficiency.

A full-length technical tunnel running from the engine room to the bow-thruster compartment – an unprecedented feature on yachts in this category until the launch of the first vessel in the series, M/Y “Africa” – provides easy access to tanks and systems at bilge deck level.

The interior design of luxury yacht Project Sunset is entrusted to the talent of Nantes-based Franck Darnet Design, who had previously designed the interior for M/Y “Africa”. In sharp contrast with the first Sunrise 45m’s dark tropical woods, “Hull 182”’s contemporary and elegant décor will feature light veneers and a bright colour scheme.

Guillaume Roché, the Sunrise Yachts CEO, stated: “Just like M/Y “Africa” was one of the “star” yachts when introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show, we are confident that the new 45m will be one of the most notable yachts delivered worldwide this year in its category. We believe that the yacht further demonstrates our commitment to excellence and to continually improving our standards while remaining a competitive alternative to quality European builders.”

“Project 182” yacht will be showcased – by appointment only – at the Monaco Yacht Show, September 24-27, 2014 and at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, October 30-November 3rd, 2014.

Newly launched Benetti motor yacht ILLUSION I (FB257) to make her world premiere at MYS 2014

August 18, 2014

Representing the latest addition to the Benetti family, the newly launched motor yacht Illusion I (FB257) is expected to make her world premiere at the 2014 Monaco Yacht Show (MYS), running in the beautiful Mediterranean yacht charter destination – Monaco from September 24 to 27. Built at the Benetti Livorno shipyard, the 58-metre four decked steel and aluminium superyacht Illusion I was designed by Green & Mingarelli for a European Owner.

58m Benetti super yacht Illusion I (FB257)

58m Benetti super yacht Illusion I (FB257)

The upcoming Monaco yacht Show will be the perfect showcase for luxury yacht Illusion I, the new 58 meters M/Y that consolidates Benetti’s leadership in the over 40 meter displacement hull market.

Illusion I superyacht, whose external design is the beautiful result of the Benetti design team with considerable input from the Owner and his design staff, has four decks plus a sun-deck. Designed for commercial charter use, the Owner will also use her privately, thanks to a layout that includes one Vip and four guest cabins, in addition to the owners cabin, giving her a total capacity of 12 + 1 passengers.

The Lower deck is given over to the guests. Aft, we have a beach area with an ample bar zone and a stylish finish: here the Owner wanted to have the same level of decor as found in the guest areas. The beach area is distinctly separate from the garage, which opens laterally for launching and recovering the tender and the two jet skis. There is also generous room in the garage for wetsuits and diving gear. Moving forward, beyond the engine rooms, we enter the Vip cabin. Located amidships, the cabin takes full advantage of almost eleven meters of beam. The spectacular bathroom is placed parallel to the vessels side, offering a priceless view.

Then we have the other guest cabins, each obviously with a private bathroom: three twins (one with a third pullman bunk) and one double. On the same deck, but completely separate, we have the crew quarters, with four single crew cabins and a double for the chief engineer, each with its own bathroom. There is separate access to all decks from the crew quarters, guaranteeing maximum privacy for the guests and increasing the crews efficiency in service.

The Main Deck cockpit, the first area to be found when coming aboard, is very spacious. A large c-shaped sofa with twin coffee table and comfortable lounge chairs has its own complete corner bar. The main salon is dominated by the Owners refreshing choice of locating the dinner table for ten next to the entryway: it is entirely dedicated to entertainment. And thanks to the aft location of the air vents, the area is very spacious and bright – the walls are fully in glass and fill the room with a splendid natural light. And for even more light, on deck the gunwales in front of the windows have been lowered to view the sea from inside and literally inundate the salon with light.

Main salon is furnished with three large sofas, supplied by the Owner, along with a low table and a retractable wide screen TV. From forward, the bar overlooks it all. The owners interior designer, in collaboration with the Benetti design office, personally chose the style of furnishings and décor, with a dominant theme in pink, while the choice and combination of the materials used is quite special. Travertine, wood, and several kinds of marble alternate with other more unusual materials: ray-skin, coco or slivers of mother of pearl.

In the guest area all the walls are covered with black walnut panels, with a special design: to augment contrast and movement, the walnut panels are alternated with parchment covered panels. The parchment is very difficult to work with, but the yards artisans managed to completely satisfy the owners needs and the grain evident in the chosen materials creates a very suggestive contrast. The Lalique crystal insets add yet another touch of elegance, and reflect the natural lighting. The ivory leather ceilings complete the effect of space and light.

Passing from the salon to the main foyer, with its majestic stairway connecting the three decks and the crew area, then enter the modern galley. Its granite finishings, along with a custom made refrigerator, two large ovens, burners, deep fryer, and two wok burners, put it on a level with the best five star kitchens. A dumbwaiter connects the main deck pantry with the upper deck pantry.

After the foyer, we enter into the Owners suite. The cabin, proceeded by a relax area, is full beam with large lateral windows and a beautiful sofa to one side. The owners bathroom, just like the Vip bathroom, is entirely finished with an onyx décor, with both sinks in carved marble. Extremely spacious, with two entryways and his and her dressing rooms, it includes an enormous central shower, a bathtub and twin toilets. With the many details that make the Illusion I yacht so special, also note the custom finished Rose Gold faucets in all the bathrooms.

Another characteristic of this area is its complete silence. Noise and vibration reduction throughout the yacht was a specific request made by the Owner, and the Benetti technicians, together with a Danish company specialized in noise reduction, succeeded admirably. This is why everything is double sealed and there is carpet in the crew area.

Informal evenings are hosted on the open Upper deck, where we find the 14 place dinner table and mobile bar; while inside there is another small salon with sofas, entertainment area, and a corner bar. Fun and relaxation are the central themes that determine the upper deck layout, where we also find a small movie theater (which if needs be, can be converted into an extra cabin), a wine cellar and a cold-box for cigars.

Moving forward we find the entryway into the crews quarters, with a cabin for the chief stewardess, the captain’s cabin, and the radio room with direct access to the bridge. Here we have yet a further example of high technology, with five large touchscreens that integrate all the command, management and monitoring functions of the ships systems.

From the stern, we now come to the Sun deck and all its features. A marvelous mosaic Jacuzzi is surrounded by sunbathing recliners, mobile bar, barbecue grill and dinette. The whole area can be sheltered from the wind thanks to a double sliding-doored veranda, but the six window skylight always leaves a view of the starry heavens. All the external furnishings are in dark painted teak while the marble is rustic travertine.

Whether inside or outside, all lighting aboard is furnished by a highly customized LED illumination system, with the possibility to individually control each fixture and create infinitely refined lighting scenarios.

And in following the Benetti tradition, the Under lower deck is devoted exclusively to the yachts systems. Including the engine room, the deck also has a large cold room with refrigerators, icebox, an area reserved exclusively for all the infotainment systems aboard, and Performance wise, Illusion I is very kind in a seaway, and has a 15 knot fast cruising speed. At the 12 knot normal cruising speed, the Illusion I yacht has a 5,000 nautical mile range. Propulsion is provided by twin CAT 3512C motors, developing 1,380 kw each. Generators are twin CAT C9 Gensets for 200 kw each, plus a third CAT C4.4 generator for 82 kw.

Illusion I superyacht is a very refined yacht with a very original décor, designed to furnish maximum possible comfort at sea, with record low levels of noise and vibration, and proudly maintains Benetti’s high class reputation worldwide.

Motor yacht Illusion I will be available for a luxury yacht charter in the Caribbean and Bahamas at a weekly rate starting from $350,000.

The Horizon V80 cockpit luxury yacht The One was reimagined from the V74 model after listening to client feedback; Horizon increased interior volume and added a variety of amenities and features, such as the ability to accommodate three or four spacious ensuite staterooms and an internal stairwell from the salon to crew.  On the exterior, Horizon incorporated a U-shaped settee for 8 persons and dual sunpads in the foredeck, with the option for a Bimini top if desired, and the crew quarters also saw an increase in space.

Horizon’s ability to customize a yacht is one of the main reasons the owner chose to build with Horizon, and he visited the shipyard and met with the in-house designers many times, both before signing the contract and during the build of the V80 motor yacht The One.  “The owner is confident in Horizon’s quality and after sales service and expressed he firmly believes Horizon was the only choice for his first luxury yacht,” says Lu.
