Danish Yachts were proud to introduced their new and revolutionary concepts, such as the AeroCruiser 38F III motor yacht, the AeroSpeed 18 Yacht Tender and the QuadraDeck Yacht Series at this year’s MYS. With a strong ethos in the traditions of superyacht build, Danish Yachts is again pioneering into new design areas for modern carbon fibre construction. Intense attention to detail at every stage of each new yacht’s build, from initial construction through to working on board systems, ensures that every vessel that leaves the shipyard in Skagen will provide minimal negative impact on the environment during the build process and more importantly, throughout its life.
Danish Yachts has invested an immense amount of research and development into new areas of green technology across their range of superyachts and was proud to announce these new concepts at the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show.
Pioneering Light and Green Technologies
From the drawing board of Espen Øino comes the new flybridge version of the innovative fast range of superyachts – Danish Yachts’ AeroCruiser. The AeroCruiser 38F III motor yacht will have the classic hallmark of Danish Yachts’ superb finish, at the same time giving an open feel to the interior with the use of full height glass. This will provide more light to this spacious interior area and a seamless transition between inside and out. Within the design, there is provision for a forward facing glass hatch, which doubles as a sun awning when fully open and allows an airy walk-through from stem to stern.
Further technical eco developments will be incorporated into this new AeroCruiser 38F III Yacht, to provide fuel-efficient engines, water system and air-conditioning. A prospective owner can stipulate his choice in terms of speed versus fuel economy.
Currently finishing in the shipyard is the Espen Øino 38 metre 50 knot superyacht AeroCruiser 38 II, Project 116. She is now undergoing shore based systems testing and is due for launch for her initial sea trials off Skagen, very soon. Thrilling times for the specialist teams at the shipyard, watching their labours come together in this brilliant new concept, pioneering light and green technologies.
The QuadraDeck Yacht Series: Exploring Space Technology
The QuadraDeck Yacht Series from the design office of Cor D Rover, is quite simply more efficient use of space, with the addition of a closed upper-deck to a conventional three deck design. This provides further space normally found on much larger yachts – a 38 metre QuadraDeck MotorYacht offers equivalent interior space to a conventional 42 metre. Each QuadraDeck yacht in the series can be customised to an owner’s individual tastes in terms of interior layout.
A unique feature offered in the QuadraDeck Motor Yacht series, is the patented ‘Sky Terrace’ developed by Cor Rover. At the flick of a switch, the top deck area can be enlarged by up to 40 percent in terms of deck space. When the yacht is moored, the enclosed sides of the upper deck fold down providing teak covered balconies on both the port and starboard sides giving an unobstructed panoramic view.
Introducing the Supercar of the Seas
Inspired by the performance and luxury of modern supercars, the AeroSpeed 18 tender incorporates the unrivalled quality craftsmanship from the Danish Yachts’ specialists, with high-speed performance and manoeuvrability. The high speed vessel is designed to be either a tender to a superyacht or a stand-alone modern superboat and can be fully customised in terms of engine drive for fuel efficiency or for a top speed of around 60 knots. The design incorporates the latest cutting-edge construction techniques and high-performance powertrains, again with the Danish Yachts’ hallmark of superyacht quality accommodation and a magnificent crafted finish.
