The cockpit offers a large area for up to 20 people for alfresco dining or lounging, creating the ideal social environment. The opening hard-top with removable sides makes this a well-protected all-weather area. The cockpit of the 35m Tony Castro superyacht is connected to the saloon via a sliding glass door, which when open, creates a luxurious inside/outside space.

The aft end of the main deck allows space for large removable sun-pads. A garage below opens up at the transom and houses a 4M tender as well as diving equipment. A shell-door folds out of the starboard side of the hull to create a swimming platform/boarding area for guests which is accessed from deck level via a set of removable steps.

Perini Navi 60m Yacht – a performance sailing yacht with superb comfort

July 18, 2011

The prestigious Italian superyacht builder Perini Navi introduces their latest 60m Perini Navi Sailing Yacht series. The shipyard has already signed two contracts for these stunning 60m yacht series as per our previous report by Perini Navi. One of the superyachts is the C.2193 ketch due to be delivered in 2013 and the other one is the C.2218 sloop with a delivery scheduled for 2014.

The new 60 metre Perini Navi sailing yacht, a natural evolution of the 56m Perini yacht series that already counts ten sister yachts launched, has clear potential for speed, is extremely comfortable and has abundant outdoor deck spaces. Many innovations in project conception, technology and design, have been used for this new type of yacht, available both in sloop and in ketch versions.

Project innovations

The new hull line of the 60m Perini Navi yacht is slimmer thanks to the use of perfect length/width proportions: 50.4m LOA with a maximum beam of 11.40 which make for a faster yacht. Hull and superstructure are in aluminium which allow the yacht a displacement of 570 tons and a gross tonnage of under 500 tons. The lifting keel also has important innovations thanks to a new vertical geometrical position that makes it more efficient and quick to lift. Thanks to this keel the yacht’s draft goes from 12.30m to just 4.30.

Technological innovations

A new generation of Perini Navi reel captive winches- faster, lighter, more powerful and yet smaller than the previous, has been created and installed on this yacht. The automatic furling systems for all fore sails have also been completely re-designed and are now positioned under the deck to optimise the use of the sail surface. The masts and the boom, which has an in-boom furling system, and all standing rigging are in carbon fibre. All sail manoeuvring systems have been designed by Perini Navi and the sail plan was drawn using all the latest technology to optimise performance without compromising safety.

Design innovations

In terms of design, the Perini Navi 60-metre yacht’s layout has been completely redone with a lighter structure and a leaner deckhouse. This project also differentiates itself from the previous for its abundance of outdoor deck areas; it has two cockpits, one fore and one aft, that allow for generous outdoor spaces that make for wellbeing and maximum comfort. The fore deck, wide and flush with 21ft tenders in recessed wells, is like a wide terrace on the sea with plenty of outdoor space for guests.

The wide transom of the 60m Perini Navi sailing yacht has also been designed for outdoor living. Using a hydraulic system, it can be transformed into a platform that offers easy access to the sea by means of an elegant internal staircase. The yacht also has a second side platform that can be used both for moving water toys from the lazarette and for direct access to the sea.

The interiors have been designed with the main saloon as an open space separated from the aft cockpit by a wide glass door and from the wheelhouse by a glass wall that can be darkened. In the centre a wide staircase leads both up to the flying bridge and down to the lower deck. The lower deck has four en-suite guest cabins and a full-beam stateroom, which, following the owner’s express wishes, can be divided in two to provide a total of six cabins. In the service area a large laundry has space for washing, drying and ironing with refrigerators for storage under the floorboards. The crew area counts five cabins on top of a separate cabin for the captain.

Riviera’s 70 Enclosed Flybridge yacht in Europe

July 14, 2011

Riviera, Australia’s largest and most awarded pleasure boat builder has just exported its first motor yacht – 70 Enclosed Flybridge  for Europe.  The 70’s home port will be in Spain.

Australia's most awarded pleasure boat builder has just shipped the 70 to Spain

This latest 70 yacht to leave Riviera’s state-of-the-art facility in Coomera, Queensland will also be on display at the 50th annual Barcelona International Boat Show, the largest boat show in Spain, which will be held in November.

The 70 Enclosed Flybridge motor yacht, hailed as the most luxurious and technologically advanced Riviera to grace European shores boasts a cruise speed of 30 knots and top speed of around 34 knots depending upon engine options and a cruising range of 1,000nm.

Riviera has built and launched six of its new flagship 70s

Riviera has built and launched six of its new flagship 70s

Since the 70’s official launch in August 2008, Riviera has built and launched an impressive six of its new flagship 70s, which are very customised builds rather than pure production boats.

Riviera’s large boat program project manager Paul Wrench said the owners of this  70 extended the flybridge rear deck, which provided added cockpit protection from the elements and increases the flybridge entertaining space.

The first Riviera 70 yacht bound for Europe

“The 70 is ideally suited for long rang cruising and this boat will have a permanent skipper.  It will be used full-time for six months of the year and being the first Riviera 70 to go to Europe, the long term Riviera owner is happy to promote the 70 in Europe,” Paul said.

“The beauty of this vessel is that it is a self-contained luxury waterfront home that can take you anywhere in the world, as it has its own fresh water maker system that produces 285 litres per hour and twin generator sets to make all the power needed to live aboard, sleeping accommodation for up to 12 in four separate cabins each with their own ensuite, an aft galley which is centrally located between the cockpit and saloon and opens to the mezzanine alfresco dining area through a large awning window and stainless steel and glass door.  The aft galley positioning can also easily serve the flybridge.”

This latest 70 to leave Riviera's facility will also be on display at the Barcelona International Boat Show

Paul said the skipper came to Australia once during the construction phase and then for the sea trials prior to shipping and he was very impressed with the vessel, saying it ran very well and the performance was in line with their expectations.

“The skipper said the overall quality of the 70 was extremely high and the owner would be very happy with the final result,” Paul said

This stunning vessel is a self-contained luxury home that can go anywhere in the world

Director of sales and marketing for Europe, Asia and the Middle East, David Taylor said the owner was from Switzerland but kept his boat in Gibraltar, which is at the mouth of the Mediterranean.

“During the summer months he spends a lot of time on his boat traveling throughout The Mediterranean. He fishes as well as entertains business clients,” David said.

“He selected the 70 Enclosed Flybridge based on his past experience with Riviera, the layout, fit and finish, quality and the soft dry ride he experienced with his pervious Rivieras, a 51 and 58 Enclosed Flybridge.  Another reason he selected Riviera was the ability to customise the boat to his liking for business and entertainment for instance the office, saloon layout, galley layout, extended flybridge, sun pads, and crew quarters to name just a few personalised changes.

The owner has very kindly allowed us to display his 70 Enclosed Flybridge yacht at the Barcelona International Boat Show which will be held November 5-13. Several dealers will bring prospective customers to Barcelona to see this exciting new boat, which is the first 70 Enclosed Flybridge yacht to be displayed in Europe.

Riviera offers 20 different models from 36 to 85 feet across four model series Flybridge, Sport Yacht, Offshore Express and Motor Yachts.

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.

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.

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.
