October 28, 2010

Feadship Royal Van Lent has sold the fourth yacht in its F45 Vantage custom-series, superyacht Sirius.

The next F45 Vantage custom-series by Feadship is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2011.

The exclusive F45 concept brings together all Feadship’s expertise in design, construction, engineering, systems and materials applied to the yacht owners desires. Superyacht Gladiator‘s layout reflects the way modern owners cruise onboard superyachts, with the emphasis on a ‘beach house on the water’ lifestyle. She has five suites on the main deck, allowing up to ten people to reside in this prime real estate location with panoramic views through the giant windows.

In addition to a wealth of dining and sunbathing options, the beach platform serves as the ideal base for using a highly impressive range of watersport facilities.

Feadship motor yacht Gladiator (ex Sirius) has a hull, superstructure, bulkheads and exterior style that were set by Feadship in advance, with the equipment portfolio also being pre-selected. Motor yacht Gladiator (ex Sirius) has a ‘Miami’ interior (one of four customised options for the F45), featuring classic art deco styling, a fresh feel and contrasting woods within a comfortable environment.

Another crucial advantage of the award-winning F45 custom-series platform is the fact that the delivery times for owners is significantly less than would be the case for a fully customised 45-metre Feadship. The next F45 will become available in the spring of 2011 and be the first to feature a ‘Nautical’ interior. Fabric covered walls in dark wooden frames and a high contrast in carefully selected materials will offer a distinguished setting to the new owners.

The Azimut “Grande” Yacht Collection

The Grande Collection is the semi-customizable megayacht family in the over 100 feet segment built by Azimut Yachts in keeping with a well-defined design and construction philosophy. Owners of the Grande Collection models can build the boats of their dreams by taking an active part in fitting them out starting from the drawing board, even before construction commences at the Viareggio shipyard.

A new stand
Access to the  Azimut Yachts “Grande” Collection at the Monaco Yacht Show is gained at the Azimut Yachts stand. It has been totally renovated and built according to an innovative concept that welcomes and accompanies customers as they walk into their dream, even before leaving the dock. Attention devoted to customers, that propensity to surround boat owners with all the comforts while they are still ashore, is one of the strong points of Azimut Yachts.

Azimut Grande 120SL Master Suite

In the water
The Azimut  Grande Collection is presented in its own dedicated catalogue, but it is above all well represented in the water by one of the top models, the Azimut 105 motoryacht, which welcomes aboard guests and customers in its unprecedented role of gallery. When aboard the Azimut 105 Yacht , not only can you bask in the floorspace, light and airiness peculiar to this boat, but you can also view all of the new range, especially models under execution like the Azimut 100 superyacht and the Azimut Trideck Yacht.

These two projects are presented with the use of overall plans and renderings, and also through the original drawings by Stefano Righini. While the Grande 100 SuperYacht will win over more than one owner with its innovative design, the Grande Trideck, with its magnificent design and ability to make boat owners dream even before it is built, will absolutely amaze.

Azimut. The number one shipyard choice of boat owners for building megayachts for 12 years

This title of supremacy was awarded by the influential international magazine Show Boat.

Azimut-Benetti has been the leader in the megayacht construction industry for 12 years. That is more a fact than a certification. It is a preference that owners have shown to its style and Made in Italy quality, its innovation, and without a doubt also to the soundness of the company itself. Azimut-Benetti has always been a private group. This peculiarity has allowed its owners to constantly reinvest in its product, as well as in its search for style and technology, as it is not required to answer to controlling shareholders or holding companies.

Fabrizio Scerch

Fabrizio Scerch, 37, is without a doubt one of the key figures that listens, develops and then makes the dreams of megayacht customers come true. Just a few weeks ago Scerch was assigned the position of Sales Manager of the Azimut Yachts Grande Collection. The position of sales manager of a collection of customizable yachts is a terribly strategic one, where customer contacts must be uninterrupted and answers have to always be quick and precise. His professional experience in the field of high end durable goods, marketing and the luxury boating sector make Scerch the ideal contact person for any boat owner. Technical expertise, good coordination skills and a personal aptitude for conversation and making all personal relationships pleasing right away are what customers look for so that the production of a Grande yacht becomes the realization of a Grande dream.

Superyacht PY-100 Liara performance yacht for sale at the Monaco Yacht Show 2010.

July 19, 2010

There probably won’t be a better time for anyone interested in the Performance Yachts range than to visit this year’s Monaco Yacht Show in September.

At the Monaco Yacht Show, not only will Nicolle Associates be presenting one of the shows undisputed stars of last year, the  PY-100 performance sailing yacht Liara, but also there will be every other principal in the Performance Yachts team. On board Sailing yacht Liara will be Directors from Performance Yachts and Southern Ocean Marine, the builders of the   PY-100 and PY-109 and, exhibiting at the show in their own rights, will be Azzura Marine, builders of the PY-115 and PY-125, and  Dixon Yacht Design, who are responsible for the design of the whole Performance Yachts range which currently spans 100 to 125 feet.

Sailing yacht PY 100 Liara

Luxury Charter yacht LIARA is now up for up for sale, for all the right reasons. After only 18 months of ownership, during which time the yacht has distinguished herself in several races and regattas, and provided the owner and his family with extremely comfortable and fast cruising, he has decided that he wants to continue his Performance Yachts experience, but on a larger model from the growing Performance Yachts fleet.

Sailing yachtPY100 Liara‘s owner notes, ‘This yacht has been everything I wanted and more. She is competitive racing, obviously fast when cruising and a superb live aboard yacht. Her build quality has proved to be very much more than the ‘skin deep’ first impression that is all some yachts manage to exude, and after 18 months she is as good as new. The only downside is that for my personal circumstances I would like to have a slightly larger yacht but, I shall be using exactly the same team at the designers, the builders and Performance Yachts to design and build her’.

Not only is the Superyacht PY-100 Liara for sale, it is also possible to arrange charters on luxury yacht ‘Liara’, which has already been successfully chartered on a number of occasions in the Caribbean and  Mediterranean with excellent comments being made by guests on board. 

Liara, the Performance Yachts 100 was selected as a finalist in the “Best Sailing Yacht in 30m to 44m size range” and also for a special “Technology Award” in the prestigious Boat International Media 2010 World Super Yacht Awards.
