June 04, 2012

Written by Zuzana Bednarova

Following an extensive refit at Delta Marine, the 21.3m luxury motor yacht Delta 70 is now available for sale. Engineered and designed by the Delta Design Group, the Delta 70 yacht is a beautiful expedition vessel, constructed strong as well as seaworthy, capable of worldwide cruising and refitted to the well known high standards of this prominent US shipyard. The asking price for this beauty is $3,650,000.

A LEGACY OF ADVENTURE
The Delta 70 yacht represents a unique part of Delta history; she was originally built as one of five in a series, modeled after one of Delta’s renowned commercial fishing vessels. This yacht has been completely retrofitted at the Delta yard to meet today’s standards.

From the exterior, it is obvious the Delta 70 yacht is equipped for adventure. The large aft deck and swim platform is perfect for fishing, diving, entertaining and relaxing. While the fly bridge is perfect for fish spotting, soaking up the sun or a cocktail on a sunset cruise.

The refit included modifications to the exterior styling, new paint, the addition of a swim platform, and all new railings, hatches and doors. The result – a beautiful and impressive high-performance yacht made new, built and outfitted to the highest current standards.

AN INVITING BEAUTY
The entirely new interior, designed by the Delta Design Group, is reminiscent of classic yacht design with thoroughly modern touches. Rich mahogany floors, exquisite built-in furniture with burl veneers and wood painted overheads are just some of the high-end features that complete the interior.

Detailing includes stainless steel, leathers, textured wall covers, marble and glass tiles all adding character and warmth throughout the yacht. The Delta 70 yacht features an open floor plan perfect for entertaining — the main salon, dining salon and galley flow seamlessly together. All in all, Delta 70 offers her owners and guests a wonderfully handsome and efficient space adorned with expansive views and natural light.

POWER AND PERFORMANCE
Engineered and designed by the Delta Design Group, all equipment and systems have been removed and replaced. In evaluating the onboard systems, the engine was removed and a certified caterpillar technician scoped and serviced it. Having only 2000 hours, or 10% of its life used, the engine was found to be in excellent condition.

All other equipment was removed and replaced, as was all piping and wiring throughout the yacht. The reinstallation was done using current sound reduction techniques, resulting in a remarkably quiet yacht.

40m superyacht ZanZiba by Archipelago Yachts offered for sale

May 28, 2012

Written by Zuzana Bednarova

Offered for sale at an exceptional price of €7.9 million, the 40m modern classic sailing yacht ZanZiba is currently entering the final stages of her construction at the yard of the respected builder Archipelago Yachts in Turkey. Just a few months away from her completion, the ZanZiba superyacht provides a new owner with the possibility to specify the fit‐out of the interior keeping a brand new vessel prepared for the beginning of the 2013 season.

The 40m modern classic superyacht ZanZiba offers much more than just the ability to have a new superyacht delivered in under a year; it also presents the opportunity to acquire a luxury vessel that will not only delight its owner but one that is also capable of generating a substantial income stream.

Originally ordered by a British businessman with many years’ yachting experience and designed in the UK by David Wright Design, the brief was for a yacht that would be able to defray a large part of its annual running costs in what was recognised as a highly competitive charter market. Rather than take the fractional ownership route, the owner decided that he wanted a boat that would reflect his own tastes and personality, but which would at the same time be attractive to sociable charterers with large families or lots of friends.

With that in mind the design brief was that the ZanZiba yacht should be externally attractive in a classical way with plenty of deck space for relaxation and toys, while below it should be capable of accommodating up to three families in comfort with a high crew‐to‐guest ratio.

After looking at a number of design and build options the decision was to take the modern classic route, which delivers graceful and distinctive lines thereby avoiding the generic look of many modern sailing yachts of this size. The selection of a schooner rig allows a choice of manageable sail configurations while twin diesels deliver a maximum cruising speed of 13 knots for passage making on light air days.

A generous beam of nine metres comfortably accommodates six double and twin cabins, all with ensuite facilities, in the forward section of the Archipelago luxury yacht ZanZiba, plus four twins aft of the engine room for the crew. For any owner that wanted a spacious master suite using the full beam of the yacht, converting two of the existing cabins into one would be straightforward and still leave four for guests. A substantial deckhouse holds the saloon and dining area and flows seamlessly into the spacious cockpit area, allowing a range of entertainment and relaxation options.

Built to MCA and RINA standards and with the full range of comfort, navigation and sailing systems, the 40m superyacht ZanZiba is now ready to begin her final interior fit‐out, giving the purchaser the advantage of being able to specify his or her own interior style.

With increasing numbers of owners looking to charter their yachts as a part of moves to control costs, it is only to be expected that the more astute will start to factor this in at the design stage. Proven attractiveness to the charter market will also improve resale values.  The ZanZiba yacht demonstrates that planning of this at the earliest stages can create vessels that will delight both their owners and the accountants.

HANUMAN: THE NAME
Hanuman, the mighty ape that aided Lord Rama in his expedition against evil forces, is one of the most popular idols in the Hindu pantheon. Believed to be an avatar of Lord Shiva, Hanuman is worshiped as a symbol of strength, perseverance and devotion.

UNCOMPROMISING BUILD QUALITY
Naval architects Gerard Dijkstra & Partners have overseen the build of the Royal Huisman luxury yacht Hanuman’s hull in Alustar, with spars and rig in carbon composite to create a yacht that demonstrates the full potential of Charles E Nicholson’s original design. To further this ambition, Royal Huisman has worked with the naval architects, the independent Carew Group, master sailmakers North Sails and spar makers Rondal to create the optimum mast and sail configuration as, in effect, a single wing unit.

AN INTERIOR THAT REFLECTS A BY-GONE ERA
Below decks, interior designer Pieter Beeldsnijder has drawn upon fine traditional materials such as hand-polished French Walnut and period design references to create all the warmth and ambience of a bygone era, sensitively fused with the high amenity standards of a modern superyacht.

COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE COMBINED
The 42m superyacht Hanuman (Endeavour II replica) is race-prepared and ready to perform, offering accommodation for 6 guests in 3 cabins.

Sanlorenzo launches ‘Experienced Yachts’ a managing program for second hand yachts

May 03, 2012

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Sanlorenzo has announced the launch of its organic managing program for used boats – a total refitting program that Sanlorenzo trimmed for the management of its trade-in yachts. The management starts with the RINA quality certification of the process and the yard will implement strict controls, works and test on ever 450 points.

The situation of the second hand boat market is well known: a tremendously huge fleet, of very different kind of boats, from megayachts to small sailing boats, spread around in a wide territory according to the home port, is lying fairly abandoned and doesn’t seem to be interesting for a flabby demand not enough attracted by too many offers mostly in bad conditions and often not properly used.

Among the managers of this countless fleet – private owners, leasing companies overloaded by distressed boats and shipyards’ trade-ins collected in better years – the shipyards should have more possibilities to deal this values, to organise and propose them for a new life.

The automotive sector, always in front line looking for dynamic solutions, is giving the example, investing lots of energies, either economical, logistical and promotional to trade growing stocks in number, but decreasing in value. Creativity and initiative in managing programs and headlines are extremely bright: from “Select” by Citroën to “Premium Selection” by Bmw, from “First Hand” by Mercedes-Benz, to “Approved Used Audi”, by Audi.

Sanlorenzo - Experienced Yachts

Sanlorenzo - Experienced Yachts

How does it works in the boating business? Till now dead calm. In a motionless set Sanlorenzo, witnessing to his dynamic and innovative DNA not downgradable by the economic crunch, is launching the first organic managing program for the used boat fleet.

Pointed up by the head line “Brokerage, pre-owned, pre-loved, second hand, used…? Experienced Yachts.

And the rest is only words”, the program contains a strong economical and organizational effort and an innovative vision to be considered gigantic in the boating business and comparable only with the automotive sector.

The total refitting program that Sanlorenzo trimmed for the management of its trade-in boats, starts with the Rina quality certification of the process. The Register’s engineers evaluated the process according to RMQA, Refitting, and Maintenance Quality Assurance.

The shipyard will carry out on each and every boat a severe program of controls, works and tests on over 450 points complying with the RMQA rules, guaranteeing the registration and the traceability of all the steps of the process and releasing a test certification and the related check lists filled and authenticated by the Experienced Yachts staff. At this stage, the hull and propellers with their shafts are checked ashore, the engine data are registered during sea trials, oil samples are analysed, and all systems checked. It is then decided which kind of intervention is necessary to refurbish the possibly damaged parts. After that, a final test of any single component of machinery, equipment and systems is carried out before delivering the boat.

Experienced Yachts

Experienced Yachts

Regardless of the specific conditions of any boat, the following operations are performed on each Experienced Yacht:

Engine check

Generator check

Sanitation of grey and black water tanks

Sanitation of bilge

Replacement of fancoil filters

Replacement of anods

Application of antifouling

All these operations are part of the CYRPTM, Certified Yacht Reconditioning Programme, certified by the shipyard.

After having examined, repaired or changed tired parts, this intense program follows in the service and guarantee sections. All the Experienced Yachts can benefit, within one year from the purchase date, of a free check at Sanlorenzo’s Ameglia shipyard, or at an authorized and agreed yard, dedicated to cleaning of the hull, changing of the anodes, painting of the antifouling, cleaning of filters and bilges, washing of hull and superstructure, systems throughout control.

It’s important to underline that all these operations, from taking the boat in charge to delivery, are performed by the Experienced Yachts staff, made up by specialists coming from the different departments of Sanlorenzo, from composite to bodywork, from woodwork to systems, up to captains for the sea trials. To better control and even better propose the Experienced Yachts to new owners, Sanlorenzo gathered all its EY fleet in only two points: its marina beside the Ameglia shipyard which is also the headquarter of the company, and Porto Mirabello in La Spezia.

The new marina in Ameglia was opened in July 2011 and represents an important requalification of the right edge of river Magra. It is a work executed under the Plan of Boating Development of Montemarcello-Magra Natural Park. It is a river marina offering to Sanlorenzo shipyard berths up to 30 metres and a dock for the travel lift. This work is giving the land the shape and look worthy of an international shipyard and allows Sanlorenzo to operate in a qualified and efficient setting.

The Porto Mirabello “show room” is displaying the Experienced Yachts in a typical Mediterranean modern marina, offering all the related services.
