The two vessels in the 52 Steel range were moved to the new yard facilities in La Spezia in April 2016 for their completion. This superyacht concept was developed based on the successful 46 Steel yacht model by Sanlorenzo. 52 Steel will bear some features of the previous model and will also incorporate latests trends in design and technology.

One of the features of the yacht’s living spaces is the wide-open saloon with large windows to ensure plenty of natural light. There are some luxury relaxation and entertainment facilities on board, including a large pool and a beach club. Accommodation will be provided for up to 10 guests, assisted by 9 crew members.

The vessel will be able to reach a maximum speed of 17 kn, and a range of 4,400 nm cruising at 11 kn.

We will be bringing more updates on this superyacht project, as soon some information becomes available. While this project is underway, you can charter a luxury superyacht by Sanlorenzo that gained great reputation among yacht charterers, and are available for charter right now.

98m Yacht AVIVA launched by Abeking & Rasmussen

January 08, 2017

Written by Mike Smith

The brand new 98m Superyacht Aviva has been launched by Abeking & Rasmussen at their Lemwerder shipyard on the banks of the river Weser outside Bremen, Germany, starting 2017 extremely well for the yacht builder.

This is the largest private yacht to have been built and launched by the German shipyard and it’s also the largest completed project by British design Reymond Langton. Both companies are proud and excited by their achievement. Aviva is part of a new current era in extremely large and sophisticated luxury yacht launches from Europe, which can only be described as a yachting Renaissance.

The yacht’s owner is Mr. Joe Lewis, who commissioned both her design and construction. He also owns another well-known Abeking & Rasmussen yacht called Aviva which was launched in 2007. Both private yachts share similar design themes and Aviva version 2.0 is a natural upgrade in size, design and technology. Indeed, Lewis is an experienced yacht owner who said: “Aviva is more than an office; it is also my home for much of the year. So for me, it is relaxing working from home, wherever Aviva may be in the world.” (in an interview with Bond Technology management). Accordingly, the superyacht is unfortunately very unlikely to be available for yacht charter any time in the near future.

November 23, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The superyacht industry is once again feeling dizzy and full of excitement for the latest mega yacht to emerge from the world-renowned Feadship shipyard in the Netherlands. Measuring impressive 96 metres, VERTIGO surely makes our heads spin with her striking exterior lines and interiors by Redman Whiteley Dixon and Chahan Interior Design and Azure acting as Owner’s project manager.

VERTIGO’s harmonious and proportionate silhouette is a typical trait of the Dutch yacht builder, boasting a flared bow with a games deck and a helicopter landing pad with a hangar below for a Bell 429 WLG helicopter.

The main deck aft hosts a revolutionary swimming pool created of glass panels, which also acts as a ceiling for the spacious beach club below. This 68-millimetre-thick structure required laminating together five layers of clear glass interspersed with foil. In addition, this 42,000 litre pool has an impressive S-curved shape and lowers to about 2.5 metres. A fantastic open panoramic view is allowed thanks to a drop-down cap rail and there is a waterfall flowing into the forward section of the pool, creating a natural separation between this exterior area and the interior of the yacht.

The fantastic sea-level beach club doubles in size when the transom and fold-down side terraces are opened. Vertigo’s custom-made tenders are launched the our the doors in the hull further forward – this feature is the first to be Feadship-Certified in a partnership with Tenderworks.

Wonderful feeling of openness spreads throughout the entire vessel, starting with the clear view from the beach club all the way to the sun deck allowed thanks to the use of glass railings with classic teak detailing. Furthermore the interior features large full-height windows throughout offering unprecedented ocean views and allowing for a huge amount of natural light to soak the interior.

Feature pieces include the double-sided fireplace made of limestone and quartz as well as decorative glass screens that divide the main lounge area from the dining area located forward. The beautiful floating staircase combines stainless steel, multi-textured stone and blue leather, adorned with plenty of finely detailed lighting.

The main deck hosts the cinema as well as guest accommodation, which is divided into six staterooms, including two VIPs, a hairdressing saloon and a dedicated pantry. The bridge deck above is home to two staff cabins convertible into guest suites if needed. This deck also boasts a club lounge, offices for owner and captain and the innovative Feadship wheelhouse.

The owner’s deck has been designed with an impressive forward-facing stateroom spreading the entire width of the superyacht and offering mesmerising 180-degree views, as well as a three-metre-high skylight ceiling above the bed perfect for romantic stargazing.

The sun deck has a dedicated gym with great views for an even more enjoyable workout. There is also a specially-made pizza oven with some impressive features – a classic example of special custom-made feature for which Feadship is well known for.

Hull number 11, as a new addition to the fleet, has some great features of the previous models but is being characterised as more aggressive with masculine lines and innovative technical solutions. In fact, thanks to her 4 2600 hp MTU M94 engines, 4 Rolls Royce/KametaWa NP water jets and 4 Seakeeper stabilisers, she shows an outstanding performance but lower consumption. Mangusta 165 E Hull 11 breaks stereotypes that fast yachts are unstable, as the stabilisation system here is so effective that it offers displacement mode usage at a minimum speed of 8-10 knots with great comfort for those on board.
