ERA 80 Superyacht: A unique Superyacht charter opportunity identified by Ricky Smith Designs

April 19, 2017

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The Superyacht charter business in the South Pacific remains a largely untouched potential market. Asian, Indian and Arabic investment in Australia has increased dynamically to a point where corporate headquarters and large regional facilities are not being located in the eastern and southern states. The Queensland State Government, as well as the Prime Minister, have both visited India in the past month with large government and corporate delegations courting massive industrial companies to invest in the mineral industry.

Available Superyacht charters located in the South Pacific in relative proximity of the ring of untouched paradises like Solomon IslandsVanuatu, Fiji, New Caledonia, Tonga, American Samoa, Bora Bora and even Tahiti which are capable of servicing 20 plus guests are few by comparison with the heavily populated Mediterranean and Caribbean charter markets.

Tourism is the second largest industry in Australia with natural, deep water harbours which are positioned along the east coast and are accessible by superyachts.

The Queensland government are processing amendments to their customs regulations to allow local customs clearance rather than purely at state capital locations. This is an important hurdle which has caused problems for visitors who have wanted to visit the ultimate east coast tourist spots of The Gold Coast, Whitsundays, and Townsville which are all regionally located.

In preparation for the change in the laws Gold Coast City Marina with its massive infrastructure has invested in extensive deep water dredging and added new docks with powering options suitable to accommodate Superyachts.

ERA is an eighty-meter superyacht which combines the level of sophistication and tailored luxury the owner’s desire for extended cruising, with integrated design flexibility to allow the interiors to transform to suit commercial charters or become a corporate workhorse at any time.

“Superyacht ERA design breaks new ground for owners and their corporate and charter market opportunities.”

Much of the design development of ERA was driven by an emerging market for larger and faster charter vessels. Much of the early design development was driven to create not just another expedition yacht with a luxurious interior, but to offer a design which incorporates innovations which bring commercial advantage to the operation and design aspects of the yacht.

ERA incorporated the innovative hull form Stuart Friezer Marine Naval Architects (Denmark) which independent tank testing has proven to dramatically reduce in- water resistance and offer “dual speed” cruising where the vessel can cruise economically at higher than standard speeds, while also able to reach sprint speeds when, and if desired or needed. Fuel saving hull design plus integrated solar panels all make operating more sustainable and profitable.

While the hull and superstructure are fabricated in aluminium, the interior structure incorporates carbon fibre truss structure, beams, angles, and channels for structural reinforcement and honeycomb carbon fibre sandwich panels for strength and weight control. Technology is moving forward and improving methods of weight control for superyacht interiors. Exotic marble granite and onyx are cut down to 10 mm ultra-thin slabs without losing strength. Floor to ceiling art- deco lights house the structural compression posts. The coffered veneered bulkheads house service ducts, cable trays, media infrastructure and lighting.

“The end results are light-filled uncluttered spaces with an improved vision both internally as well as outwardly.”

Transformable space design

The SFM hull form is purposefully designed to have no tumblehome up to the bulwark on the main deck over the main sections of the hull. The fabrication timeframe is dramatically reduced for a vessel of this size while allowing the interior spaces to be fabricated accurately offsite at the same time. This method was incorporated in the interior design construction method of the interior of Ulysses (Trinity Yachts) where the interior was pre-built, shipped and installed in 10 months.

The Main deck social areas comprise 7 separate spaces; Foyer vestibule, Dining room, Mid Reception lounge, port and starboard entry vestibules, Formal Panorama Reception and the aft deck areas.

Slide the aft facing glass doors away and the Formal Panorama Reception opens onto the aft deck and pool terrace for private cocktail parties at sunset, alternatively, push away the forward-facing curved glass walls and space increases massively into the Mid Reception lounge. Open the black chrome framed doors to the dining room, Foyer vestibule and the reception lounge is complete. With the interior and exteriors partitions opened, ERA offers an unprecedented 225 square metres of available space.

More About 90m MOONSTONE Superyacht Project Revealed by OCEANCO

March 02, 2016

Written by Eva Belanyiova

OCEANCO unveiled more details about the impressive new 90-metre luxury mega yacht project, presented at the presently running Dubai International Boat Show. MOONSTONE represents the latest and very distinctive creation by OCEANCO in collaboration with Van Geest Design, with innovative and artful features. What makes MOONSTONE stand out amongst other yachts that are similar in size, is her uniquely conceived ‘faceted’ hull sides, combined with the elegant lines that suggest a hypnotic glamour seen in the multiple surfaces of a finally cut precious stone.

Moonstone DP014 by Oceanco

Moonstone DP014 by Oceanco

This distinctive facet motif can be found throughout other areas of the yacht and is also used in conjunction with special lighting effects. MOONSTONE is not only striking in her design, but has also been engineered to be PYC-compliant and able to accommodate considerably more than the ‘usual’ twelve guests on board. She could well be a perfect private yacht for an owner who wishes to entertain and accommodate large parties of guests, or a fabulous charter yacht available for event charters and not only.

The lighting design features incorporated into the concept include the backlit surface of the overhead panel, which is linked to fish-eye cameras that can capture the magic of a night sky, a sunset or a sunrise, or their reflection on the water. This type of technology is also very versatile and can be utilised to affect many colours, moods or ambiences.

The hull side facets include customised panel lights triggered by 300 individually dimmable white triangles per hull side. These panels will generate endless lighting possibilities and effects.

The swimming pool and the hot tub have also been fitted with innovative lighting systems, where the lights of the walls of the pool can be dimmed, generating a welcoming glow. And last but not least, the horizontal boot stripe lighting plays with the water line of the yacht.

90m Moonstone DP014

MOONSTONE has been designed and engineered based on the Oceanco 90m platform, utilising its efficient and proven technical layout. The general arrangements have been designed with flexibility in mind, and include a complete owner’s deck, a large gymnasium and a spa area, a cinema and a touch-and-go helipad.

If you are wondering about the energy to be used for the hull side panels, than you do not need to worry: the hull light panels are designed to be self-sufficient thanks to the 70 square metres of standard solar panels on top of the superstructure. One day of sunshine, will illuminate and dim the panels for approximately three hours at night.

Another special feature of the yacht is her plumb bow, which boasts an integrated mooring and anchoring bay, keeping the bow area clear and uncluttered.

Future Owner(s) and guests will enjoy the huge sky deck lounge with magnificent 360° views of the yacht surroundings. The made-to-measure exterior deck furniture is designed to be modular, lightweight, clean and chic, requiring little maintenance and be easy to use. This will allow for further flexibility on deck, depending on the lifestyle aboard.

The unfolding navigation wings, which spread out laterally like wings suspended in mid-air, will increase visibility. Side platforms located forward provide easy access to the selection of water toys and rescue tenders. Aft side platforms, on the other hand, offer access to two main guest tenders and an outdoor lounge play area.
