New 94M Superyacht TETI – A project by Zuccon SuperYacht Design

January 27, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Following the launch of a 90-metre and a 92- metre project, Zuccon SuperYacht Design (ZSYD), the division of the Zuccon International Project based in Rome, Italy and specialising in mega yachts, is currently developing a challenging 94-metre superyacht concept called TETI.

TETI by Zuccon Superyacht Design

TETI by Zuccon Superyacht Design

ZSYD continues with its typological experimentation on projects characterised by significant volumes, where the large dimensions offer a great possibility to benefit from new scenarios, provided both to the designer and the owner. The 94m TETI is based on the constant search for the right balance between internal and external spaces. Such research is given by the determination to guarantee a certain set of essential functions that are closely linked to the interiors, while at the same time working on a typological research that would bring new opportunities to experience the yacht’s exterior areas. TETI focuses on the relationship with the external environment, one of the main subjects of ZSYD research. More often than not, the focus of superyachts of this size is on the interior areas, at the expense of outdoors and external lines, therefore simply drawing up a kind of shell, which often seems to shut down the surrounding environment.

UPPER DECK SPACIAL REVOLUTION

Amongst the most important results of the above mentioned research is located on the Upper deck that is now the focus of action, as opposed to more traditional layouts where stern deck and Sundeck were the sole areas dedicated to the outdoor activities.

In this new project, however, it is the Upper deck area that assumes a key role, since here takes place the majority of the daily activities onboard: the deck is entirely dedicated to guests and their entertainment. Together with a more traditional large table and pool area on the aft terrace, the bow area displays a second environment that develops in continuity with the internal dining lounge, and becomes then a connection element between the outdoor seating area and the second large pool.

All the attention is focused on this new scenario: in an area usually dedicated to technical operations, the pool becomes a sunny, large, terrace in the sun, made even more welcoming by the comfortable sofas. The 94M TETI Upper deck offers a new and different solution, absolutely unique if compared to the projects currently on the market.

Just as we have an Upper deck exclusive use to guests, the Owner deck has been designed to be entirely dedicated to the owner that, through a private staircase, can reach the Upper deck from his private terrace.

The relationship between external spaces has been revealed as an extremely strategic issue: the ability to move easily between the outer decks becomes an element of exploitation of the spaces themselves, in addition to guaranteeing absolute privacy to the owner and his guests. One of the layout solutions for the Owner deck, gives the chance to set up two owner’s suites – ideal solution for the charters – complete with an exclusive studio each and walk-in closet, while the guests will be hosted in 8 cabins, between the Main and Lower deck, each one with a private bathroom.

TOYS AND AMENITIES: NEW ENTERTAINMENT OPPORTUNITIES.

The tender and toys issue, currently of great relevance, takes on a strong emphasis on the 94m TETI. Moving all the guests related activity on the Upper deck frees enough space for four tenders – between 8 and 10 meters – to be allocated between the Beach Club and the Main deck. The owner here has the chance to play with a versatile layout: in addition to a tender bay (solution already adopted on CRN70 J’Ade) that opens on the left side, allowing to navigate the tender inside the floodable beach club, there is then the second, more traditional, starboard garage that can host another 10-meter tender. In addition, sacrificing a portion of the living area on the Main deck, other two tenders, about 10 meters long as well, can be accommodated onboard. When it comes to equipment and toys TETI is surely a generous yacht!

A SPORTY AND TIMELESS DESIGN. With regards to the overall aesthetic appearance, the research aiming at maximize the outside spaces exploitation allowed volumes to be reduced to a minimum; TETI has a sporty skyline, despite the seven bridges. It has, in fact, been possible to contain the volumes, a feature that enhance the design dynamism, giving also this last project a Timeless look. The 94m TETI has such stylistic and formal features that can guarantee the yacht to maintain its appeal unaltered over the years. However, of all Zuccon Superyacht Design’s projects, this is the only one where the Timeless idea is given less emphasis, since greater prominence was given to the research for balance between the desire to experiment and the product’s commercial reliability. It can sometimes happen that researches could lead to concepts whose contents are actually much more innovative and stronger than the ones in ZSYD’s projects, but too often those concepts have nothing to do with the market actual needs. Today the leisure yachting market still remains strongly conservative, accustomed to products that guarantee a long term durability. According to Bernardo Zuccon, architect and TETI designer, “Formal, functional and technological experiments were recently presented to the market. Although they have had a strong impact, they were actually mere stylistic exercises and were soon forgotten. Large vessels are built to last. With the 94m TETI we introduced new contents in the project without drifting from that Timeless idea that, even though is strictly connected with an ongoing research, it has indeed a key role in the current market”.

First Details of 55M Superyacht ATLANTE by CRN

January 25, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Belonging to the Ferretti Group, the Italian shipyard CRN, specialising in the construction of 50- to 90-metre fully custom superyachts in steel and aluminium is proud to give us a sneak preview of the 55-metre superyacht ATLANTE in the video below.

26/1/2016 Update: CRN releases new images of the yacht…

ATLANTE at launch

ATLANTE at launch

ATLANTE is a beautiful result of the outstanding job by the CRN Technical Office, which were responsible for the naval design of the luxury yacht, in collaboration with Studio Nuvolari Lenard, in charge of her exterior profile, as well as Studio Gilles & Boissier Interior Design, responsible for the development of her interiors.

Measuring 55 m in length with a beam of 11 metres, ATLANTE boasts an intentionally very strong stylistic identity drawing inspiration from the style elements typical of military ships. She is characterised by square form, sharp lines and forward-thinking solutions, brought together with an immaculate attention to stylistic and aesthetic details of her interior. As per the accommodation, ATLANTE features one stunning Owner’s suite and four VIP suites, offering overnight stay for a total of twelve guests. There is a crew of thirteen taking care of her owners’ and guests’ needs, as well as the yacht itself.

The luxury yacht entirely reflects the owners wishes, who explicitly requested a yacht with a strong masculine touch, inspired by an unforgettable sporting icon of the automotive industry. CRN constructed a vessel that truly breaks the mould. There were no compromises to be made in this project, yet again showing her versatility in being able to provide the client with personalised design solutions and organise a competent dialogue with the most important names in the world of international design.

Numerous stylistic features have been requested by the owner, who was personally involved in the build right from the start. The many unique details include innovative handrails in polished steel with a trapezoidal profile, which is reminiscent of a diamond and reflects natural light in a similar way.

All the metal elements present in the different areas, in polished steel and burnished brass, contribute to these reflections. Another general feature desired by the Owner was to have a vessel with “open” spaces: this desire has been translated into concrete solutions which hide the mooring and safety equipment away in functional compartments and niches that are aesthetically integrated into the yacht’s overall design.

ATLANTE’s striking interior is designed to create a strong sense of intimacy; every detail is carefully studied to guarantee the absolute privacy requested by the Owner. This attitude is also reaffirmed by the colour schemes characterising the various areas aboard the vessel: the dark colours of the hull and superstructure can be detected throughout her interior, where different tones of Carrara and Verona marble – from lighter colours and veining to darker colours – combine wonderfully with the tones of smoked oak cleverly mixed with brushed fir, black oak and larch. The result is an elegant superyacht which makes wood and formal choices its calling card.

ATLANTE boasts CRN’s characteristics which have written the history of international yachting, reworking them to best incorporate them in the vessel’s structure. The first characteristic feature of Atlante is boarding the vessel itself. The main access is provided directly on the lower deck from the beach club, a large area decked out for guests in light brushed fir and teak, equipped with a solarium, sunbathing area and custom-made tables. This zone is completed by two symmetrical areas which open out onto the sea, each with its own balcony: the right-hand one is devoted to relaxation, with a massage bed and a Turkish bath, while the other one on the left-hand side is dedicated to fitness, with Technogym equipment.

The beach club also gives access to the engine room. The lower deck offers four guest cabins, which are directly connected to the main deck; they have different layouts but all boast the same smoked oak and brushed silver fir tones, white Calacatta Vagli marble with grey veins and dark grey Carnico marble, sofas and tables that are custom made, like the various styles of lamps created by French firm Pouenat, all designed by Gilles & Boissier.

The lower-deck bow area contains the crew quarters, from which it is possible to access, via stairs from the main deck, the dinette equipped with dedicated access for taking on provisions via a hatch on the port side. On the opposite side of the dinette is the captain’s cabin, and beyond this, the six cabins for the crew members. From the beach club, along a striking staircase in grey Carnico marble and teak and through a watertight glass and steel hatch, we enter the main deck, an area full of peerless stylistic and design innovations. A multi-purpose area which transforms from a technical zone to a living space, a convivial daytime area and natural continuation of the beach club, a large, comfortable home theatre or even a large party area. The garage holds 3 tenders: 1 limo tender, 1 walkaround, both custom-made 9 metre models designed by Nuvolari Lenard, in addition to a custom-made 5 metre inflatable boat.

The innovative closed stern solution provides access to the sea via the two side hatches which open mechanically upwards for the tenders to be lowered into the water by the two cranes installed on the ceiling. A sliding glass door leads into the main salon, which is emblematic of Owner’s taste, a real aesthete, with his choice of dark smoked oak and light décor that gives the area a warm and welcoming effect.

All interior decor and furniture/decorative lightings are custom made, designed by the capable hands of Gilles & Boissier. Tables made from fabric, wood and marble with metal legs; sofas with rosewood frames and light Loropiana fabrics. The two sides of the living area feature two sliding glass doors towards the stern which guarantee maximum privacy for the Owner and his guests from the outside, while allowing them to remain in direct contact with the sea. Large vertical windows provide suggestive light and reflections.

The main salon also contains the only internal dining area on the whole yacht, composed of two up-and-down tables positioned on an inset Tai Ping rug. The floor is dark oak parquet, with marble edging. A rug made of natural “abaca” fibre covers the entire surface area of the living space, while the ceiling is in leather. Walking towards the bow, we enter the lobby, featuring once again smoked oak, with an integrated closed lift which is reminiscent of those in residential buildings. Around it, a white Carrara marble staircase links the main deck to the guest cabins on the lower deck, and to the other decks (upper deck and sundeck), which can also be reached by lift.

Moving on past the lobby, we enter a wide corridor which leads to the Owner’s Suite. On the right-hand side of the corridor we find a day toilet in Calacatta Vagli marble and afrormosia teak, and on the left a door which leads to the professional galley and the pantry, and to the stairs which provide access to the crew quarters on the lower deck. The wide corridor leads us to the Owner’s Suite, contemporary and elegant in style, notable for its essential lines and colours. This environment displays all the materials and woods used on board: brushed silver and brown fir, brushed black oak, eucalyptus for the desk and coffee table, and leather panels.

The full-beam Master Stateroom opens up on the right with an innovative alternative solution to including an office, with a sliding desk for the Owner’s business affairs and a leather table/pouffe which also slides along rails parallel to the sofa positioned along the entire right-hand wall. The prestigious Suite is completed by a wall-mounted TV and desk opposite the bed, and a sofa. In the bow, the full-beam bathroomwith two side entrances for his-and-hers areas is covered entirely in dark grey Carnico marble, with a central shower cabin whose walls are in grey-veined white Calacatta Vagli marble.

The upper deck is an “experiential” one. The vessel can also be boarded from the outside stern area, forming an alternative access to the official one via the beach club, used for particularly tall docks. Then a hydraulic masterpiece in steel and teak leads guests on board the spacious cockpit of the upper deck, featuring all custom-made furnishings: black teak sofas with light Perennials fabric which give at the same time a touch of elegance and dynamism to the areas; the up-and-down dining tables in black oak with polished steel frames, combined with removable director’s chairs. The area is also equipped with a minibar and an ice maker. A sliding glass door of over six metres leads to the upper deck living area, where a mirrored layout of the furniture with a wonderful low table in solid wood divides the space into two. On each side there are corner couches, tables with eucalyptus and rosewood tops and custom-made lamps. The side windows have a big impact, bathing the area in light; the base of the windows features leather seating offering priceless view over the sea. The floor is dark oak parquet with marble edging. A rug in natural “abaca” fibre covers the entire surface area of the living space, while the ceiling is made of larch wood, like the wall panels. The upper deck lobby faces out onto two floor-to-ceiling windows that make the area particularly airy. The lobby also features a work of art by a French artist.

An incredible uninterrupted stem-to-stern experience leads to the wheel house with Telemar integrated bridge, equipped with five interchangeable screens and touchscreen controls on glass panels. Leaving the wheel house we find ourselves at the bow, where a large living area opens out; highly elegant and innovative, its clean, straight lines are decked out in teak and allow remarkably convivial moments in total privacy. The only furnishings are represented by an up-and-down table positioned opposite to the bridge and a few removable seats around it, all of which disappear into the flush deck. On each sideof the table there are the bimini top poles, in gloss black-finish carbon fibre with integrated lights, which support the sun canopy; all of this is fully removable.

Another significant innovation is the hatch flush with the deck which leads to the bow mooring room, which is completely hidden. The ample bow space allows touch-and-go helicopters of up to three tonnes to land, with the possibility to remove the stanchions around the entire perimeter of the area. At the bow, we find a hidden telescopic carbon-fibre pole with the lights for night-time running. From the stern of the upper deck, via a splendid open-riser staircase in polished steel with a glass and teak lifeline, guests can access the sundeck for some pure relaxation. The stern area is equipped for entertaining and is furnished with the same custom top-and-down tables and sofas we have already seen in the outdoor areas.

At the bow, the intimate relaxation zone is composed of a sunbathing area with an electrically manoeuvrable sunshade, and a stunning swimming pool right at the bow facing out onto the sea ahead. The swimming pool is also made with all the linking elements which characterise the entire vessel, such as the trapezoidal polished steel handrail, glass and metal trim. The on-board entertainment system is completely integrated and controlled via iPads and iPhones, which the entire vessel is equipped with. The automation system was developed in partnership with Videoworks. Atlante is equipped with two Caterpillar 3512C engines that develop 1,230 kW @ 1800 RPM and propel the craft to a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.

Sailing Yacht DAHM 120 Unveiled in Dusseldorf

January 25, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The 47th International Boat Show in Dusseldorf has seen the beautiful new DAHM 120 sailing yacht unveiled, causing stir amongst the attendees. The 36,6-metre fast cruising yacht, designed by Beiderbeck Designs, was announced as a joint project with Dahm International.

The 1:25 scale model of the new DAHM 120 remains faithful to the original and is replete with detailed solutions and casual luxury. The superyacht project is on display at the show and can be viewed daily until Sunday, 31st January from 10am until 6pm at stand G02 in Hall 7a.

The fold-out stern platform made by Opacmare, can be utilised as a beach club with its own shower and toilet when the yacht is moored. The owner and his partner can accommodate up to eight guests on the four-storey higher main deck. To the right a minibar can be found, excellent for cocktails while the scampi sizzles on the grill to your left.

DAHM 120 Deckplan

There is also a well-equipped al fresco dining area in the rear quarter of the vessel. The deck, which is protected on both sides by an elongated structure, is also very wide. Crew of up to six members are provided with a private access to their cabins, while a large glass sliding door leads to the fabulous saloon. There are two sofas opposite each other with a two-seater couch at the head of them. The exemplary cream-coloured cushion pads have a distinctly comforting effect. The first-class interior can of course be customised according to your desires. Fully-glazed and obstruction-free window facades grant a full view of the sea from all sides. A large deck section at the top of the stairs has a similar effect, acting as an atrium for the salon below.

An access via a sliding door on the same level leads to the front of the ship to the cockpit. All the controls come together here, with the exception of the code zero winches, and fully concealed they do not present any tripping hazards. The two steering wheels are located four metres behind the mast and the yacht can essentially be sailed single-handed with no more than push button functions. With 20.75 metres to the bow section, the helmsman will feel like he is only steering a 70 foot yacht.

You can keep an eye on the mainsail trim from the open-air Bimini roof. The 45 metre-high carbon fibre mast carries 680 m2 of upwind sail area, which is opposed by a 4.2 metre draught. This allows 130 tons of light weight for serious sporting requirements, emphasised by 1,000 m2 Code0 on the steady stay. The rig, with its self-tacking furling genoa and the carbon fibre furling boom for the main, has a proven track record.

Dahm120 salon

Throughout the design phase, particular importance was attached to simple handling and easy maintenance. The same is applicable to the engineering room below-deck, which provides technicians or the crew an additional direct access route from the stern platform as well as to the engine room in front of it, where all the vital functions come together in a separate control room. Generators (2x 40 kW), converters, air conditioning units, water purification, compressors and, last but not least, the 300 kW main engine are all monitored from here during operation.

Retuning to the deck, we will find additional separate seating areas next to the helm stations, which can be adjusted either leeward or windward when travelling under canvas. There are removable window panes looking out. Dead astern, the cockpit can be divided from the saloon if the crew is sailing the boat and the owner wants the salon to himself, either with or without his guests. This high level of privacy makes the new DAHM120 well suited for purely private or commercial (charter) use as well.

The strict division between sections is fully taken into account. This starts with two 3.4 metre dinghies instead of one large one which means, for example, that the crew can make supply runs regardless of whatever land excursions the VIPs are making. In addition, these are easier to handle than larger, heavier dinghies. The tenders are typically stowed in recesses on the foredeck and covered with tarpaulin. he crew quarters are located below deck aft, which includes the crew mess across from the machine control room, next to which the on-board laundry facilities and dryer are housed.

The three double cabins, two on the starboard side with a separate shower and bathroom, and one on the port side for the boat captain with a double berth and its own washroom, provide more than enough room. In front of these is the impressive galley with its induction hob, steam oven and soft ice cream machine for sophisticated gourmet cooking experiences. A dumb waiter means dishes can be brought straight up into the salon.

Future owners could also choose to have a lift installed midships, making the DAHM 120 wheelchair-friendly. In this case, ground-level access to one of the two VIP cabins is also possible. All four cabins have their own bathrooms with shower cabins that, at 1.1 x 0.8 metres, are unusually generous for a 120 foot yacht. The other twin guest cabins are another two stair steps down and separated by a passageway leading to the owner’s realm.

The owner is provided with a fully-networked office with WLAN, G4-mobile radio and satellite communications which is divided from the stateroom in the forecastle. There is a king-size double bed, which is placed centrally underneath a tinted skylight. The seating furniture, an extendible flat screen display and a dressing table are fit for any five-star hotel. The owner’s bathroom, with its 1.35 metre wide shower, is simply the cherry on top of the cake.

Perhaps the most impressive room on the DAHM 120, which would be more in place on 50+ metre-long motor yachts, and very unexpected here, is located on the starboard side, just opposite the well-lit internal dining room. This is the cinema with a concave, 65 inch screen, which can not only play every video format imaginable, but can also be connected to all the latest gaming consoles.

January 25, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The respected Dutch shipyard, Feadship has announced its first launch this year, that of the 66,25-metre superyacht VANISH. The vessel was launched during a rock’n’roll ceremony this Saturday, 23rd January, 2016. at Kaag Iland. The ceremony was attended by hundreds of guests and the proud owners treated all yard personnel to a tour of their pure custom vessel.

VANISH boasts such impressive features as a free-standing staircase flanked by a glass wall over three decks, an innovative extendable balcony for the owner’s stateroom and a very original transom design. The yacht has been constructed to the desires and wishes of her owners, just as any other Feadship superyacht, and on this particular build, the shipyard collaborated with Eidsgaard Design.

“This launch party encapsulates the energy with which the owners have embarked on fashioning their Feadship,” explained Feadship director Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “They are excited about enjoying all the options involved in being close to the water, from the exquisite transom sea terrace to the inviting sun deck bar. Vanish has been designed to suit the way they like to spend time onboard with a wide array of watersports options. With helipads on both the sun deck aft and bow area, she serves as a springboard to a world of adventures for the owners and their guests.”

The owners of VANISH were very much involved in the project and had great fun in creating this spectacular vessel. Their appreciation for the perfect craftsmanship carried out on their behalf was made clear when they offer to give all the personnel of the yacht and their partners the possibility to view the finished vessel.

“It is very unusual for all the people from the myriad disciplines involved in a superyacht build to actually get to see how everything came together in the end,” adds Verkuyl. “Vanish is a showcase example of a holistic superyacht, and it is wonderful that everyone involved can experience the fruits of their collective labour in this way.”

Every single detail aboard VANISH was designed and carried out to achieve the most functional and aesthetically pleasing solution. Her modern and powerful exterior is softened by harmonious lines and the use of varnished teak, including cap rails with a diameter that exceeds 25cm. Her unique transom offers intimate contact with the water while meeting the owners’ desire not to feel intimidated by the hull’s bulk when arriving by tender or swimming from the sea terrace.

Another fabulous design feature is VANISH’s full-height atrium with its free-standing staircase and awe-inspiring wall of glass, a unique feature on a 66-metre luxury yacht. The balcony for the full-beam master suite is yet another impressive feature, where a teak covered platform slides out from under the starboard companionway, using a state-of-the-art pull-out mechanism, locking in place flush with floor level of the stateroom to give a seamless transition through glass sliding doors.

NEW WIDER 150 Super Yacht GENESI i-BRIDGE

January 22, 2016

Written by zuzana

A unique combination of stylish design and demanding practicality, the WIDER 150 super yacht GENESI by WIDER Yachts is a striking vessel, boasting sleek looks, innovative power system and spectacular opening transom as well as beach club. Moreover, she features a highly innovative helm station, known as the “I-Bridge”. This has been designed and developed in partnership with Team Italia, and is not only attractive to behold, but also supremely practical to use.

At rest, the control panel is clean and linear, stretching across the width of the bridge in an elegant and uninterrupted manner and allowing for an uncluttered, clean layout. In navigation, the modular console wraps around the Captain in a “C” shape, granting easy access and visibility to the controls – a clear safety benefit, but also ensuring greater flexibility and comfort.

The I-Bridge can be adapted according to the requirements of the Captain at any given moment with predefined modes set for offshore & inshore cruising, approaches, mooring, as well as docking. Each combination has been developed to ensure that the bridge looks sensational, but at the same time the operator of the yacht benefits from the best of ergonomics and practicality.

Have a look at the video here below, introducing the I-Bridge aboard luxury yacht GENESI:
