Widely supported by some big names in the industry, the idea of SuperYacht Gallery has received a large number of positive responses. SuperYacht Gallery is a joint project of Merijn de Waard, Managing Director of SuperYacht Company, and Marijn Smit, former Manager Events & Multimedia at Feadship.

The world-renowned shipbuilders Lurssen, Benetti, Abeking & Rasmussen, Baglietto, Delta Marine, and superyacht designers Winch Design, Espen Oeino, Nuvolari Lenard and many others also agree that it would be fantastic to present one-of-a-kind world super yachting in a new and thrilling way. The guests of SuperYacht Gallery will also enjoy workshops and seminars conducted by builders and designers.

“Many yachting events focus on selling space to exhibitors and completely forget about the visitor experience. With everything we do, we question ourselves whether it is comfortable and interesting for the visitor. We don’t want to create another mass event, but a high-quality and interesting exposition about the superyacht lifestyle.”— Marijn Smit – Co-Founder & Director

 Press Release

The new Fjord 42 open celebrates

The new FJORD 42 open – world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show on September 28

Fjord 42 open

 

The latest development of the brand portfolio of the HanseGroup, the new Fjord 42 open, presents an even more striking hull design and a flat deck layout.

The 12.59 meter long and 4.27 meter wide powerboat is both sporty and multifunctional. The large bathing platform can be lowered hydraulically and used for a dinghy or to access the water. The anchor can be raised and hydraulically stowed in the anchor locker on the bow by the push of a button from the dashboard. The new T-Top contains lots of electronics, first and foremost the electrically retractable soft-top bimini, which shadows the rear cockpit area on request.

The new Fjord 42 open is powered by two Volvo Penta IPS engines with 370 hp, or optional with 435 hp each. The larger IPS 600 engines accelerate the Fjord to 40 knots and more. The IPS Forward Drive is thereby very efficient and a joystick enables easy maneuvering. The new Fjord 42 open is controlled via an innovative dashboard that can be equipped with two 16 inch Raymarine displays. The touch screen displays can thereby be operated from all three sport seats.

The deck layout offers two large sunbathing areas on the bow and on the stern. The cockpit is Fjord typically designed with an outdoor kitchen under the T-Top and seating area, which can be converted into another sundeck. At night, the indirect on deck lights on the ground, behind the hand rails and on the T-Top create a phenomenal atmosphere.

Below deck awaits the owner pure Fjord design in the master cabin, with a large island bed, ample shelves and storage space as well as amnesties such as TV and a Fusion sound system. A second cabin with twin beds can accommodate more guests on board.
