Shining out above the rest, they are set to become the top attraction at all the autumn Boat shows.

On the subject of new yachts, “My Paradis” superyacht, the new trideck in the Benetti Class Range Displacement line made quite a splash.

The highlight of the festival weekend, which opened at 10 am on Saturday 28th at the Monte Carlo Yacht Club with navigation trials and entertainment, was the Gala Dinner at the Salle d’Or, in the Fairmont Hotel.

Alen Yacht 68 Motor Yacht IGUAZU launched in Turkey

June 16, 2014

The 68-foot Alen Yacht motor yacht IGUAZU lunched in the beautiful yacht charter destination – Turkey, combines the elegant social spaces of a cruising yacht with the fun of a day boat. Created for the owner of the 184-foot charter yacht Panthalassa, designed by Foster + Partners in 2009, it shares a similarly refined palette of materials and boasts one owner suite and vast entertaining space at the prow – this arrangement is highly flexible and subsequent yachts in the series can be specified with up to three cabins.

The fast, agile motor yacht IGUAZU can travel at up to 45 knots, and the design of the interior emphasises the sense of flying across the waves. Unlike typical boat fittings, the furniture does not touch the inside of the hull, but traces the contours of its white leather walls. A stair leads down to the prow of the yacht, where the lounge is naturally top-lit by a central strip of glazing. The versatile, open-plan layout can accommodate up to twelve guests, as well as creating private niches for relaxing. To the stern is the master suite, with a double bed and leather chaise longue, and the galley and bathroom are in the centre of the boat. Every detail has been considered and prototyped aboard luxury yacht IGUAZU, from the bathroom drawer that extends into a compact vanity unit, to the placement of grab rails, which are seamlessly integrated with the structure. In a subtle reference to traditional nautical design, a horizontal band of teak is used as a recurring detail, revealed in the interior of the white lacquered cabinets.

Above deck, the bespoke furnishings include a modular unit of three sun loungers. Maximising the flexibility of the space, two further black fabric recliners are arranged on either side of the wooden foredeck and the yacht also has space for a large tender, jet skis and paddle boards. At the helm of yacht IGUAZU there is a conventional wheel and state-of-the-art automatic controls, as well as cameras for full visibility. The bench along one side of the outdoor dining table also functions as the driver’s seat – it can be elevated in its entirety to allow the whole family to sit ‘up front’ and steer a course. A black fabric shading screen, like the cover of a sports car, can partially or fully enclose the seating area to protect the yacht in all weathers.

New motor yacht Millenium 80 OPEN introduced by OTAM

April 28, 2014

With 60 years of powerboating experience, the Italian yacht manufacturer OTAM was determined to keep the performance aspect, but wished to tame the power and add considerable luxury. The result is the all-new OTAM motor yacht Millennium 80 OPEN, which is one of the most exciting sports yachts to hit the market in a long time. Superyacht Millennium 80 OPEN represents a combination of sophisticated technology, sportiness, elegance and design.

New superyacht Millennium 80 OPEN by OTAM

New superyacht Millennium 80 OPEN by OTAM

Luxury yacht OTAM 80 retains all the technical virtues of its predecessors 80 HT-Hard Top. There is the classic deep-V hull with its generous dead-rise angle that cushions the ride. There is the hearty two or four engine propulsion option (leisure and performance versions – the original MTU 2600 HP diesels coupled with the Arneson drives can be replaced by four MTU with Trimax drives).

The Open version of the OTAM 80 yacht is the result of the new idea of a completely Open yacht that fulfills today’s market demand for “sporty Mega-Open” and superyacht chase boats.

OTAM 80 Millennium OPEN Yacht in blue

OTAM 80 Millennium OPEN Yacht in Racing Blue

Starting with the proven Fabio Buzzi hull shape, the yacht designer Alberto Mancini wanted to emphasize speed, an immediate perception of a sporty Mega-Open, with a very protective windscreen that wraps around both sides of the cockpit and terminates with the large carbon air intakes, clearly derived from automotive lines.

The roll-bar is color coordinated with the hull scheme, that Mancini and OTAM wanted in five different custom color variations, with colors that are unique, sporting and elegant; the same themes that characterize the seagoing spirit and philosophy of OTAM clients: Racing Blue,  Maranello Red, Titanium, Black and Gold Grey.  Of course, full custom color schemes are always possible.

OTAM 80 Millennium OPEN Yacht in gold grey

The deck layout was specifically designed to take advantage of the external cockpit: a facing twin “C” shaped settee that can be covered with the Bimini top (or an optional hard top), and a double bar completely equipped for both a day trip or a real open air passage: ice makers, capacious refrigerators and grills.

The spacious sun bathing area is astern, above the tender garage, with another sun-pad zone on the foredeck. All the outdoor upholstery uses new materials especially designed to integrate with the tones of the chosen hull color scheme.

OTAM 80 Millennium OPEN Yacht in titanium

The internal layout is available in the three or the four cabin versions, with the owners suite astern and the Vip suite forward, with two twin cabins, or as completely customized guest cabins.

The OTAM 80 Open yacht represents a vessel that promises speed with a twist of luxury. Here is a combination of speed and sophistication that you rarely find, making OTAM a welcome addition to the high-performance sport yacht market. Its top speed is 50 knots but OTAM is still experimenting with propellers. OTAM is confident that a new set of Rolla propellers will take the speed up to 55-58 knots!
