February 21, 2017

Written by Rachael Steele

On the 15th of February 2017, Heysea Yachts successfully launched its first 29m/96ft Asteria motor yacht, which was designed by Australian naval Architect David Bentley to incorporate a sleek modern silhouette coupled with stability.

Balancing exterior and interior layout, the Asteria range features a spacious main salon and formal dining area perfect for evening entertaining with family and friends, or for corporate charters.  There is an abundance of lounging areas situated flybridge and to the aft and fore of the main deck to optimise outdoor living while absorbing the beauty of the surrounding landscape.

While the standard layout is configured for a spacious Master suite complete with sofa, walk-in wardrobe and considerable bathroom, as well as a VIP stateroom and two double cabins, the owner requested a customised layout. Instead, both guest cabins have en-suite facilities and a state-of-the-art media room becomes an addition to the spacious Master suite. Adding to the on board innovation, in both the standard and customised layouts the double cabins can convert into twins and vice versa at the push of a button. The crew are also well taken care of, with the standard layout providing naturally lit twin cabin accommodation for up to five crew members.

A smaller version of the successful Asteria 108 range of motor yachts from HeySea Yachts, the first 96ft Asteria model is nearing completion for delivery to her Chinese owner.

Two New Videos of Oceanco Yacht JUBILEE – A Visual & Technological Masterpiece

February 13, 2017

Written by Mike Smith

At 110m/361ft in length M/Y Jubilee was built by Oceanco and launched last week as the biggest yacht yet built in Holland, a yacht building country on the up and up. The superyacht has an innovative and visually stimulating exterior styling featuring flowing horizontal lines and shadows on her superstructure as created by Lobanov Design. Perhaps ironically, she looks almost organic and ocean like with these abstract man made forms. Her interior, which we are yet to photographed but is likely to be equally impressive and is by Sorgiovanni Designs.

Y 712 and Y 714 at Oceanco

At 110m/361ft in length over all, she has a generous 16.4m/54ft beam width and she weighs just over 4,500 Gross Tons. Her elongated profile flows elegantly & gracefully from bow to stern; with no fewer than six decks, her progressively longer horizontal lines make JUBILEE distinctive from all other yachts.

Jubilee Video:

“M/Y Jubilee is is largest private yacht yet built in the Netherlands.”

Great video of the yacht from the air:

JUBILEE is truly a vessel in a class of her own. Igor Lobanov has created a unique & architecturally challenging design which creates a visual effect of multi-level decks – never seen before. She offers a fully certified helicopter operating deck forward with a concealed mooring deck below. Viewed from above, her curvaceous lines lead aft to a large pool deck with built in Aquarium and substantial beach club below.

Built to the Passenger Yacht Code, her elegant Sam Sorgiovanni designed interior is both spacious and comfortable offering accommodation for up to 30 guests in 15 staterooms including an entirely private owner’s deck.

This boat represents a number of firsts in yachting, not only for her size, but also the fact that she is a fully turn-key project completely outfitted at delivery. This includes all of the owner’s supplies; tenders, spares, watersports equipment, china, crystal, silverware, table linen, sheets, loose furniture, cushions, etc. A visual and technological tour de force, JUBILEE will be undergoing sea trials in the North Sea and is scheduled to cruise the Mediterranean during the summer season.

The largest superyacht ever built in the Netherlands, 110m/361ft Jubilee (Project Y714) was launched by Oceanco. The striking exterior design of this yacht was developed by famous Lobanov Design, while bespoke designer Sam Sorgiovannni worked on her interior. Azure Naval Architects were responsible for her naval architecture.

Very few details about this project were available until today. Upon Jubilee’s official launch, Oceanco unveiled more details on one of the most expected projects of 2017.

What makes her incredible exterior design unique is the long horizontal lines and her profile flowing elegantly from bow to stern.

Her unique and architecturally challenging design by Igor Lobanov creates a visual effect of multi-level decks. Jubilee features a fully certified helicopter operating deck with a concealed mooring deck below. Viewed from above, her curvaceous lines lead aft to a large pool deck with built in Aquarium and substantial beach club below.

The New E98 motor yacht DO IT NOW is Launched by Horizon

February 04, 2017

Written by Mike Smith

Built for an American client who previously owned a Horizon 76 motor yacht, the new E98 “Do It Now” is the result of a close collaboration between an experienced owner and Horizon’s design teams.

http://www.charterworld.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/The-Horizon-Yacht-E98-Do-It-Now-1.jpg

With sleek exterior lines reminiscent of the Horizon E88 yacht – the E98’s popular, smaller sister – “Do It Now” sports an efficient high-performance hull designed for stability and seakeeping. An impressive draft just under 6’ enables this 98-footer to explore shallower waters, expanding the cruising destinations beyond the capability of many 100’ yachts.

“The new Horizon E98 motor yacht, with her extensive indoor and outdoor spaces, flexible interior configurations and numerous amenities, truly fits a market that we have seen arise in the last few years…clients who are not yet ready to make the leap to 110-foot plus yachts but are searching for something larger than 90 feet,”said Horizon Group CEO John Lu. “The fact that hull one was so efficiently customized for a second-time Horizon owner is testament to the durability of this model’s design. We are looking forward to her making her U.S. debut at Palm Beach in March.”

The Horizon Yacht E98 - Do It Now - transom

While the Horizon E98 is offered in both skylounge and open bridge versions, “Do It Now” was built with an open bridge layout incorporating a fixed front glass windshield and EZ2CY side panels that allow the area to be easily transformed from open-air to enclosed and air-conditioned. On this deck, which features a custom bar with seating for five as well as a large dinette, the owner has also incorporated a commercial ice box, hi/low BBQ and storage for lounge chairs. An expansive aft deck and a bow seating area with a dinette and sunpads round out the variety of entertaining spaces.

Designed to suit the owner’s lifestyle and tastes, “Do It Now” features an elegant custom interior that extends the main salon forward through the space normally occupied by a formal dining room to a pass-through opening into the country kitchen. Each guest space boasts luxurious fabrics, neutral stones and custom furnishings. Within a voluminous 23’ beam, the living areas and large country kitchen forward are highlighted by hi-gloss Walnut finishes while Walnut in a satin finish sets the tone for the lower deck housing four spacious en suite guest staterooms. Situated aft on the lower deck, the crew quarters are highlighted in a White Oak satin finish.

“Do It Now” is equipped with twin CAT C32s of 1900hp each, affording a top speed of 22.5 knots and a 19-knot cruise. At 10 knots she’ll enjoy a 1250nm range. “Do It Now” is also fitted with zero-speed stabilizers, bow and stern thrusters and custom AV and navigation equipment, making her an enviable vessel for entertaining or simply enjoying the voyage.

“Simply stated, the Horizon team is a pleasure to work with,” says the owner of “Do It Now.” “Every effort is made to deliver a high performance yacht that reflects the owners’ individual design features and boating requirements. Building a yacht doesn’t get any better than this!”

January 21, 2017

Written by Mike Smith

The 74 metre superyacht CLOUD 9 has been launched by CRN in Ancona Italy on 21 January 2017. The custom motor yacht’s launch was on schedule and has already received great acclaim both at the launch and in the news.

Yacht CLOUD 9 Launch Video

CLOUD 9 has been awaiting her launch party after being positioned to hit the water a couple of days ago. She is the result of a close collaboration between CRN shipyard, Zuccon International Project and Winch Design. According to CRN the yacht is “a spectacular and powerful combination of engineering expertise and ground-breaking design, CLOUD 9 is a close collaboration between CRN shipyard, Zuccon International Project and Winch Design. CLOUD 9’s clean lines are enhanced by subtle superstructural design details and the elegant aesthetics of all her guest areas, resulting in a superyacht of world-class calibre.”

“It has been a great pleasure to work with Zuccon,” commented Andrew Winch of Winch Design. “I have always admired Mr Zuccon’s exterior designs and to partner with him and CRN for this project has been very exciting. We have previously designed a 60 metre motor yacht for these clients with whom I have a very close friendship which makes this project particularly enjoyable. It is a pleasure to work with them again and I am appreciative of their trust and confidence.”

Alberto Galassi, CRN’s Chairman and CEO of the Ferretti Group, said: “We are really thrilled to have been involved in the construction of this extraordinary yacht which was a new and exciting challenge for CRN. This incredible 74 metre vessel will reinforce CRN’s expertise and varied range in working with a completely new concept to fulfil an owner’s vision. The result is a cutting-edge yacht that perfectly combines state-of-the-art technology, astonishing design and the best CRN features.”

Official PR by CRN:

“A spectacular and powerful combination of engineering expertise and ground-breaking design, CLOUD 9 is a close collaboration between CRN shipyard, Zuccon International Project and Winch Design. Commissioned by an experienced superyacht owner, the vessel will be delivered in April 2017.

The technical aspects of the project were developed by the CRN engineering team working in partnership with exterior designers Zuccon International Project, while Winch Design was appointed to create the exterior guest areas, livery, interior decoration and owner’s supply, resulting in excess of over 1,000sq metres of design elements being created across all decks.

Alberto Galassi, CRN’s Chairman and CEO of the Ferretti Group, said: “We are really thrilled to have been involved in the construction of this extraordinary yacht which was a new and exciting challenge for CRN. This incredible 74 metre vessel will reinforce CRN’s expertise and varied range in working with a completely new concept to fulfil an owner’s vision. The result is a cutting-edge yacht that perfectly combines state-of-the-art technology, astonishing design and the best CRN features.”

“It has been a great pleasure to work with Zuccon,” commented Andrew Winch of Winch Design. “I have always admired Mr Zuccon’s exterior designs and to partner with him and CRN for this project has been very exciting. We have previously designed a 60 metre motor yacht for these clients with whom I have a very close friendship which makes this project particularly enjoyable. It is a pleasure to work with them again and I am appreciative of their trust and confidence.”

The design vision of CLOUD 9 demonstrates an optimised balance between interior and exterior spaces, with impressive volume and a high degree of comfort along with a free flowing layout for a relaxed indoor-outdoor living environment. Distinctive open-air areas such as the private deck forward of the master suite and the large beach club with extended platform at sea level have been conceived to offer maximum scope for alfresco enjoyment. Burgess Technical Services were appointed owner’s representatives on CLOUD 9 and have played a key role from the early stages, beginning with developing and agreeing the technical specification with the owner and CRN, and extending through the build to responsibility for technical review and acceptance, project management, on-site supervision and coordination of consultants (paint, interior installation, AVIT).

The benchmark for quality has been set high on CLOUD 9. “Not only in terms of immediate appearance to her owners and guests,” explains Ed Beckett, Naval Architect with Burgess Technical Services, “but also from the perspective of seakeeping and comfort, the arrangement of engineering systems, the quality of the paintwork and attention to detail throughout whether visible or invisible.”

“The clients’ knowledge, along with that of Captain Colin Boyle’s, has been exceptional throughout the design process,” remarks Andrew Winch. “Burgess brought a wealth of technological capability and understanding, resulting in a yacht that is not only beautifully designed, but also exceptionally well built for purpose.”

CLOUD 9’s clean lines are enhanced by subtle superstructural design details and the elegant aesthetics of all her guest areas, resulting in a superyacht of world-class calibre. With a beam of 13.50 metres and five expansive decks plus a sub deck, the yacht comfortably accommodates up to 16 guests (12 when chartering) in a master suite, VIP suite and six guest cabins, in addition to 22 crew members in 13 cabins plus berths for four staff in two cabins. The vessel is powered by two Caterpillar 3516C 2,000 kW @1600 rpm engines, delivering a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. “

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The official news regarding the launch of the massive 98-metre mega yacht AVIVA have been released by the yacht’s builder, Abeking & Rasmussen this morning. AVIVA has hit the water in the second week of January and represents the largest ever superyacht constructed by the German shipyard.

A&R 98m luxury yacht AVIVA

She was launched by means of a sophisticated launching system where a large pontoon from Norway had been shipped in and moored in front of the new construction shed. A dedicated hydraulic platform trailer with 60 wheels combined with a winch transported the impressive 98 metres of the vessel slowly but steadily onto the pontoon. The entire operation was planned well ahead, taking several weeks to organise.

As mentioned in the previous articles, Reymond Langton Design were the masterminds behind her design, collaborating with Toby Silverton on AVIVA’s exterior, they have come up with an elegant, sleek yacht with characteristic lines.

One of the most impressive features of her modern yet mystical interior is the full-size padel tennis court measuring 20m x 10m x 6m.

As a result of extensive new research and testing her sturdy and curvaceous hull provides for superior seakeeping abilities combined with a 20% decrease in drag. Less engine output is required, fuel consumption is significantly lower and she can reach a maximum speed of 20 knots. The hybrid drive system enables AVIVA to run at up to 11 knots without the use of the main engines, using electric motors only. This means her cruising is smooth, silent and environmentally beneficial, providing great comfort to her owner and guests aboard.

The 98-metre was launched in a record time of 33 months from the signing of the contract, which is very unusual for the size of this project. Thanks to this experience and additional detailed planning, A&R will be able to deliver future superyachts in even less time. Following her sea trials, which are due to start shortly, AVIVA is scheduled for delivery in spring 2017.
