ICON Yachts from the Netherlands have again indulged into Italian styling, joining forces to create this formidable and striking 73m thoroughbred ICON 73 MILANO super-yacht design study. A striking interpretation made by the Italian design studio Hot Lab based on the proven ICON technology, the 6 decks layout is tailored to present three spacious guest suites and a further two super sized 34 square meter VIPs.

Striking yet timeless, the Hot Lab exterior styling is a perfect blend of architectural and automotive design setting a new milestone in luxury life style to indulge into the ultimate super yacht experience. The light flooded interior spaces provide calm and well defined ergonomics with owner and guest comfort and pleasure as primary design focus. A revival of a pre-rationalistic architectural tradition crowned with a reminder of a bygone sophistication with the library and cigar rooms.

The steel and glass structure on the aft sun deck was originally intended by Hot Lab to be a greenhouse, it is in fact a multifunctional space that can be dedicated to a gym, wellness area or more simply as a semi-open lounge. The use of glass renders this structure visually light and perfectly integrated with the shapes of the Icon 73 Milano motoryacht. Again, glass is the element that also characterizes the upper deck: a large portion of the aft decking features flush skylights that allow light circulation with the aft main deck area underneath.

In typical ICON tradition the bow area of the Main deck is dedicated to the tender garage with side shell openings capable of housing two boats up to 8.5m long. Adorned with a dynamic exterior the new Icon 73 Milano features an enormous iconic beach club as a direct extension of the luxurious guest accommodation on the lower deck. The large transom platform opens up to the sea for the ultimate beach experience on the water. The large teak folding platform furnished with sun beds is in direct continuity with the sheltered lounge area featuring bar, sauna and diving equipment store. A scenic corridor that crosses the engine room and links the beach club to the guest area which includes a fully equipped gym.

The transom door can also lowered to create a safe and convenient shallow beach. At night the large glass panes illuminate the space and sea into a pool of LED colours that can be programmed depending on the mood or for party / disco entertainment.

2011 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show Brings Quality Buyers

May 22, 2011

International exhibitors have claimed the quality of prospective buyers at the 23rd Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show was the best they have seen in 10 years.

Mulpha Executive General Manager Alison Quinn said the strong support for this year’s Show has buoyed us as we plan forward for next year’s Show leading to the quarter century celebration in 2013.

“The feedback from exhibitors underpins this Show as a ‘must attend’ event for the marine industry.”

Grand Banks Singapore dealer James Purves, who has been coming to the Show for a decade, was impressed by the quality of the visitors.

At close of business, confirmed sales included two multi-million dollar Princess motor yachts – a 72 sold to a Sydney buyer and a 52 to a Gold Coast buyer.  The total value of the sale was around $A7 million.

Mark Richards who manufactures Palm Beach Motor Yachts reported the sale of two of the just-released 52s to current Palm Beach buyers who have upgraded to the new model.

Further positive comments from the 384 exhibitors included Riviera’s Stephen Milne who said: “We have had a fantastic show, we sold 10 boats which have a retail value of some $A15 million ranging in size from a number of 43 Flybridges, a 5000 Sports Yacht, two 5800 Sport Yachts and three of the brand-new 53 Flybridge model,” released in a world launch at Sanctuary Cove.

Mr Milne added he had three full days of sea trials next week and he was confident the company would exceed last year’s sales. He added sales were made to buyers in Sydney, Adelaide, South Africa, New Zealand and Puerto Rico.

“We are exceedingly happy about this year’s Show and we are cracking the champagne.”

Brett Flanagan reported the sale of two 350 Integrity Pilothouse boats – one to a walk-in couple who paid for the boat on the spot.

“We have never really sold a boat at a show before this Show, and we have six or seven sea trials booked for next week,” he said. 

Ensign Ship Brokers also reported a walk-in sale on the first day of the Show with a firm order for a Beneteau Oceanis 40.

According to Clipper Motoryachts Australian Managing Director Brett Thurley, the past eight weeks have been the strongest for the company in new boat sales since taking over Australian distribution two years ago.

“We have commitments on three boats at the Show already and the strong ongoing interest will give us a lot of work to do in the weeks after the Show.”

Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show

Flying Fish Hovercraft sold three hovercraft at the Show. “I have to say the quality of the enquiries is exceptional,” said the company’s Emma Pullen.

“The big news for us is that a visitor to the Show from New Zealand is considering the purchase of 10 craft for an events business and has departed the Show for an immediate demonstration at our own events business in Caboolture – that would be a very significant sale for us in expanding the HoverCross brand internationally,” she said.

Julie Balzano from Enterprise Florida in the US managed a delegation of Florida companies exhibiting at the Show for the first time. “The overall consensus has been very positive,” she commented. 

One of the five manufacturers was Florida company, Armstrong Nautical Products. Vice President Russ Sedlack said there were a lot of discerning customers at the Show.

“We don’t normally sell off the stand but people insisted they buy our product off the stand,” said Mr Sedlack. The centre pole telescopic boarding ladders and ladders for RIBs proved popular. He answered inquiries from international visitors from Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Canada, Japan and China.

Nautical Structures President Robert Bolline exhibited at Sanctuary Cove for the first time with the Florida delegation.

“We are very optimistic to build business here and we have found the boat builders to be very open-minded and open to discuss business.”

American company Westport Shipyard was at the Show in the Superyacht Australia pavilion. The company came to Sanctuary Cove for the first time as it has clients in Australia owning a 34m and 40m vessel. The company builds composite motoryachts and claims to be the largest yacht builder in North America.

“It is the first time at the Show…. We also do Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Singapore, Cannes and Monaco. We consider this a very good venue for international audiences,” said Vice President Philip Purcell.

By 4pm on Sunday, visitor numbers were tallied at 36,504 – an 8.4% drop from 2010.

Exhibitor Outer Reef Yachts President and CEO Jeff Druek said the company did 25 to 28 shows a year.

“We had many positive leads. Every Show has been the same – the volume of visitors is down but the quality is superior.”

“The strength of the Australian dollar has driven interest. We find we are very well received. Sanctuary Cove to us is a ‘go to’ venue,” said Mr Druek.

Australian companies also enjoyed sales. Seawind’s sales and marketing manager Brett Vaughan said the company made a number of sales of its new Seawind 1000XL2.

“Interest in the larger Seawinds – the 1160 and flagship 1250 and the Corsair C37 that debuted at this Show is also strong and we anticipate sales in the days after the Show,” he said.

Traditionally Maritimo does not reveal sales figures from shows. However Maritimo’s Director of Marketing Luke Durman acknowledged strong interest in Maritimo’s M48 Series II, A55 Aegean and C53 Sports Cabriolet models.

Sanctuary Cove’s event also saw the relaunch of the iconic Mustang brand.

“The Mustang 32 sold well as expected,” said Mr Durman. The Show also saw the unveiling of a Mustang 50, which proved to be a real surprise package to the Mustang brand loyalists.

Australasian Marine Imports also had a successful show, with the sale of a Hampton 680 Endurance and an Alaskan 57 Pilothouse along with an Alaska 46 Flybridge which are built in China. 

Club Marine is a sponsor of Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show. Media partners include BoatPoint, Channel Seven, 4KQ, Trade a Boat and 92.5 Gold FM. Maritime Safety Queensland is a government supporter. Hawker Pacific and Barz Optics are supporters.

The $A2 billion Sanctuary Cove, located on the northern Gold Coast, is Australia’s leading and most successful master-planned community. Sanctuary Cove was acquired by current owners Mulpha Sanctuary Cove (Developments) Pty Limited in 2002. MSCD, an arm of Mulpha Australia Limited, which is a subsidiary of Malaysian listed Mulpha International BHD, has invested significantly in Sanctuary Cove over recent years, resulting in a major transformation designed to ensure the pre-eminent community remains at the forefront of master-planned living in Australia.

Dates for forthcoming Sanctuary Cove International Boat Shows are: May 24-27, 2012; May 23-26, 2013; May 22-25, May 2014.

Superyacht LADY BRITT Charter in the Baltic, Europe

May 19, 2011

The Superyacht LADY BRITT is available for luxury yacht charters in the Baltic area of Northern Europe this 2011 summer. Motor yacht Lady Britt is a 2010 Feadship as built with typical world class quality. The 63 metre (207 ft) yacht also features exterior styling and naval architecture by De Voogt Naval Architects and her interior was designed by the renowned Redman Whiteley Dixon design studio.

The Feadship Motor Yacht Lady Britt Underway

The Feadship Motor Yacht Lady Britt Underway

Sleek, graceful, powerful, 63 metre Lady Britt was launched by Feadship and is one of the newest Feadships available for charter this summer. The yacht was paid an outstanding compliment when Henk de Vries stated that she is “the finest yacht this shipyard has built to date”.

From May 14 Lady Britt will be offering charters in Northern Europe and cruising the Baltic and Scandinavia – Stockholm, Helsinki, St Petersburg – before also heading down to the Mediterranean later in the summer. Follow the wake of the Vikings from the fashionable contemporary style of Stockholm to the medieval winding streets of Tallinn, 2011’s European Capital of Culture. Northern Europe and the Baltic is a fascinating place where ancient traditions are re-emerging amongst the cast-off colours of Communism and where local pride is reasserting itself in bustling markets and new takes on ancient industries. The imperial grandeur of St Petersburg is contrasted against the thick forest and wild scenery of the Latvian and Estonian coastlines.

On a European Baltic yacht charter, who knows what you might find – in January, divers off the Finnish coast discovered a wreck holding the oldest champagne in the world, perhaps a few bottles are still floating… Lady Britt’s classic contemporary interior, designed by Redman Whiteley Dixon, is an unusual combination of New York apartment style with Scandinavian accents. Outstanding 20th-century artworks include pieces from Chagall, Picasso and Henry Moore. There are several special features: an authentic Finnish sauna facing a side platform that lowers over the sea, a dedicated Elemis wellness spa with Elemistrained therapist, beach club, sun deck gymnasium and a magnificent outdoor cinema.

Stockholm Sweden

Motor yacht Lady Britt offers a full-beam master suite is situated on the main deck with six anigre-wood panelled guest cabins all on the lower deck. Two of these cabins can be converted to create a further full-beam VIP suite. A highly experienced captain and crew ensure that Lady Britt is one of the very finest yachts for charter. You can book your 2011 summer Baltic yacht charter from €445,000 per week on M/Y Lady Britt here.

Azimut Benetti Group shows strong sales in the South American market

May 18, 2011

The Rio de Janeiro boat show strengthens the leadership of the Azimut Benetti group, which achieves a total of 29 boats sold under the Azimut Yachts and Atlantis brands. These figures confirm our leadership in a rapidly expanding market, and the far-sightedness of investing in a production that focuses exclusively on Brazil.

The Azimut 103SL motor yacht

Of the 16 Azimut Yachts and Atlantis models exhibited, the most successful were the new 48 Atlantis and the 43, the 53 and the 58 in the Azimut Flybridge Collection (medium size), the Azimut 88 in the superior category and the 103SL in the Sports Collection.

The Azimut 103SL was the largest model exhibited at the Rio Boat Show.
This success was also due to the Group’s solid cooperation with the local dealer Yachts Brasil which, with its 22 sale outlets located around the coast of Brazil and in the main towns, today represents the most widespread dealer and support network in the area.

As pointed out by Luca Morando, CEO of Azimut do Brasil, the Group also has reason to be proud of the appearance of the first Azimut 43 and Azimut 58 at the Rio Boat Show; these two models are produced in the new Azimut do Brasil facility in Santa Caterina and were both sold during the show.

The first launch from Aquos Yachts has been honoured by leading Yachting Media in London & Hong Kong.

The first award, as the Most Innovative Motor Yacht launched in 2010, was presented at the Hong Kong Gold Coast Boat Show at the Gold Coast Marina. The awards, which have been awarded annually since 2005, honor the best yachts and yacht industry companies in the Asian Pacific region. Yacht Big Fish, a steel hull-aluminium superstructure 45M yacht, was delivered last June by Aquos Yachts in Auckland, New Zealand from its birth yard McMullen & Wing Shipyard. The award was presented to Richard Beattie of Hong Kong, yacht Big Fish’s owner and chairman of Aquos Yachts, who was accompanied by his son, Ken, also of Hong Kong. Ryan Swift, editor of Asian-Pacific Boating, organizer of the Asia Pacific Awards program, presented the award.

The following evening, Richard Beattie and members of the Aquos Yachts team, were gathered at the famous Guildhall in London for the annual presentation of the World Superyacht Awards by Boat International magazine. Attending with Beattie were Greg Marshall and Gordon Galbraith of Gregory C. Marshall Naval Architects of Victoria, BC, and Rob Chappelhow, Aquos Yachts creative director, of London. The Big Fish yacht was presented with a Special Judges Commendation award in her category of Best Motor Yacht under 500 gross registered tons.

“We were thrilled to receive both these awards in less than the space of 24 hours,” Beattie said.  “They demonstrate a keen awareness and appreciation within the luxury yacht industry for the quality and approach to the market taken by Aquos Yachts, as exemplified by our first creation, Big Fish.” Beattie added, “We are especially appreciative of the recognition by the Boat International judging panel given the intense competition in our judging category. Just to be considered in the same ranks as a company like Picchiotti Perini Navi Group, among the most respected and recognized brands in the yachting world, is a distinct honour. We heartily congratulate them on the naming of Exuma as the winner of the Neptune Award.”

These awards are added to previous recognition of superyacht Big Fish by YACHTS France, which honoured the vessel last fall at the magazine’s annual awards ceremony in Cannes during the Cannes Yacht Show.

Beattie said the three awards – coupled with the extraordinary reception given Big Fish by the world yachting media since its launch 10 months ago – is especially heartening. “M/Y Big Fish and Aquos Yachts are being recognized for the qualities we have strived most to achieve the highest possible level of design and construction quality, coupled with a truly contemporary vision for luxury expedition yachting, which we believe is what the next generation of major yacht owners are demanding from the yacht industry. In less than a year, Aquos Yachts has come from nowhere to become one of the most highly visible and appreciated names in luxury yacht design and construction. We couldn’t be more thrilled and proud of what we have accomplished in such a short time.”

Ventura receives customer relations award from Pershing (Ferretti Group)

May 17, 2011

In recognition of its exceptional customer relations and customer relationship management, Ventura UK has received the ‘Best Marketing & CRM Performance’ award from Pershing. The award was made at Pershing’s recent dealer conference in Cattolica, Italy, which was attended by principals and representatives from 60 Pershing dealerships around the world.

Pershing 108 Motor Yacht

The award was won in competition with all of Pershing’s dealers worldwide, and was presented to Michael Newton-Woof, General Manger of Ventura UK, by Giancarlo Galeone, CEO of the Ferretti Group, which owns Pershing along with  Ferretti Yachts, Riva, Mochi Craft, Itama, Bertram, Custom Line and CRN.

On receiving the award, Michael Newton-Woof paid tribute to the team at Ventura: “This was an unexpected surprise, but much appreciated by all of us here at Ventura UK” he said. “Customer service is indeed something we place a great deal of emphasis on, and the team have done exceptionally well in that regard in the past year. I’m very pleased that their efforts have been recognised in this way by Pershing”.

This year’s dealer conference ran consecutively with a VIP client event attended by specially invited Pershing owner’s and prospective owners from Europe and beyond.

Seven models from the current Pershing fleet, were lined up for inspection on the pontoons in Cattolica. Highlight of the 2-day event, which took place on 7-8 May, was the world debut of the phenomenal Pershing 108 motor yacht, the latest addition to the Pershing stable. This stunning, 42-knot Pershing 108 superyacht is among the most eagerly anticipated that Pershing has ever produced. Her triple-engined surface drive configuration makes her not only very fast, but also unusually versatile, giving her a top speed close to 50mph as well as the ability to make passage at 10 knots under a single engine, at very low noise levels, with a range of up to 1000nm.
