With the SERION E60 yacht project, the design studio shows its competence in research and development (R&D) and wants to set a clear statement for future yacht design.

The SERION EXPLORER E60 yacht concept is based on a research of trends in yacht design and upcoming value shifts within the next 15 to 20 years.

The aim of SERION E60 yacht is to broaden the developing picture of future motor yachts within 60ft by elaborating changing megatrends, markets, and consumer behaviours but also focusing on unconventional functions and features within this class. This concept highlights areas of possible improvement and redefines the overall character of classic passage makers.

The SERION EXPLORER E60 yacht concept focuses on the ability of long range journeys, autarkic traveling and maximum living spaces at all climate or weather conditions and would make an excellent charter yacht.

Reasonable changes within future lifestyles prove that influences of extreme urbanization will cause an increasing demand for deceleration. It is highly expectable that the aspect of wellbeing and experiencing as well as independent and autarkic traveling will come to the fore, and the picture of fast looking dynamic yacht designs will slowly start to fade away.

The growing trend for passage makers is clearly visible in the super yacht segment, where not only the idea of long range journeys, but also the unmistakable look and feel of a moving luxury environment on any ocean of the planet makes up for the main purchasing reasons.

Comparing the growing interest for long range vessels in smaller classes and the current variety of the 60 ft-market, there is a clear gap regarding future consumers’ expectations in terms of design and product identification.

Exterior design concept:

To make up for the missing luxury appeal in many passage makers within 60ft, high emphasis was put on aesthetic and emotional, yet practicable treatment of lines, forms, and proportions across the entire hull-and superstructure-design.

The visual, functional and emotional fusion of motor yacht and sailing yacht-characteristics communicate the spirit of joyful long distance traveling as ecologically friendly as possible.

Merging an emotional luxury approach with the idea of a rough ocean-going explorer vessel, SERION E60 rather fits to the aesthetics of luxury yachts, than to conventional trawlers and passage makers of its class.

Due to this, the main deck is stretched to the bow, where it connects to the main superstructure.

Besides its new and unconventional overall appearance, the yacht offers several exterior features such as 2 balconies, one on each side of the greenhouse and a tilting bathing platform to create a huge beach club.

The wide flybridge of the SERION EXPLORER E60 yacht concept stretches itself above the whole main deck and the wheelhouse provides shade and safety.

Interior design concept:

With an unconventional division of spaces and a layout concept that is based on reduction and special utility areas, each deck on board the SERION E60 offers super yacht- inspired advantages in terms of a spacious and light flooded atmosphere.

Depending on its temporary habitation and involved climate conditions, large units of the insulation glass can be converted. Retractable panoramic windows transform the main deck to an open loft whenever desired and sliding windows within the sky-cabin, which is located behind the wheelhouse on the fly bridge, enable open air night’s right underneath the stars.

The functional design approach of the main deck enables the experience of fusing interior and exterior spaces, creating a generous feel at any spot on board. A boundless view across the entire length of the main deck subconsciously suggests a living space far bigger than 60 feet.

As the rear sliding door opens up completely, the external bar and internal kitchen unit seem to entirely merge together.

In a nutshell:

Taking typical trawlers and passage makers to another level of sophistication, the SERION EXPLORER E60 yacht concept expands the horizon of imagination towards future 60ft displacement yachts.

Exercise Your Right to Boat at the 2012 Seattle Boat Show

January 25, 2012

The 65th annual Seattle Boat Show has something for everyone. If the visitors wakeboard, waterski, fish, kayak, cruise or race, under power or sail, on boats small or large, want to trick out their yacht with new gear or hone their skills at seminars, this show’s for them.

Seattle Boat Show

Seattle Boat Show

This year’s show also promises tons of opportunities for boaters to indulge their inner techie as so many advances have been made in electronics and software in the past year.

Some highlights include:

Simrad’s new 4G Broadband Radar at the Yacht Masters’ booth. This truly dual range radar has two processors in it allowing a boater to have one range set at a mile for close in targets while the other range can be six miles for longer range planning.  What really sets this radar apart from its competition is the elimination of the main bang or the area around your boat that is always a dead zone that close in targets are lost in. This radar uses a different technology that allows targets to be seen next to your boat.

Also at Yacht Masters will be Flir’s new First Mate MS hand held thermal imagine camera. Flir’s award winning night time technology is now available in a go-anywhere hand held technology for less than $2,000.The Flir First Mate MS fits in the palm of one´s hand and turns the blackness of night into daylight. Put in a pocket when one heads out for dinner in his dingy and can be sure of his safety when he is coming home at night.

Miller & Miller Boatyard will have the world’s first touch screen wireless AIS transponder, the WatchMate Vision™ from Vesper. The system is incredibly user-friendly and can be accurately controlled with ease, even when hands are wet or wearing gloves. The full color touch-screen is capable of operating in direct sunlight. WatchMate Vision is the first dedicated display-based AIS transponder to integrate WiFi functionality, allowing AIS interaction with any wireless smartphone, tablet or laptop.

DMK Yacht Instruments is new company formed in 2011 by three Northwest boating aficionados and industry veterans with a goal of linking IOS capabilities (iPhone and IPads) to the marine environment. They will be displaying their DMK 11A for the first time ever. The DMK 11A is an electronics device with inputs for NMEA 0183, AIS, NMEA 2000, and Seatalk.  Once wired to the vessel, the 11A sends data packets via a wireless connection to a mobile device like an iPad or iPhone. The vessel’s instrument data, such as depth, boat speed, wind speed, and GPS position can be displayed as well as vessel monitoring information such as engine data.

Raymarine will have their new e7D. It is a compact yet powerful navigation solution for recreational and light commercial boaters. The e7D brings to the market multiple unique features never before seen in a marine multifunction display, including: built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and an H.264 video encoder which enables wireless video streaming to Apple iPhone and iPad devices; Bluetooth networking that lets you link e7D to digital music players and control them right from the helm; and a Sport-Optic Friendly” LCD display does not black-out when viewed with polarized sunglasses.

Less techie, but no less useful to the boater, will the display of Prodeco folding electronic bikes from Seattle E-Bike. Eleven of the 13 Prodeco models fold at the frame, and at the stem, making them very compact. It takes 30 seconds to fold them, 30 seconds to unfold them and get on your way. No tying them out on the rails of the boat, one can keep them dry and unsalty inside.  They make a special 20 inch line for boaters, private airplane owners and RV owners, called, appropriately, the Mariner. Its stem folds in three places. The high end Mariner 7 will let you circumnavigate even Orcas Island at 18 mph without pedaling, uphill and down, provided when you stop for lunch you plug in for an hour. Pedal moderately, and you will go faster, and can skip the charge.  In other words, one no longer has to be an athlete to explore the countryside at the ports he visits.

Seminars galore:
The seminars are always a huge attraction at the show and 2012 is no different. No other show in North America matches the Seattle seminar schedule in terms of the quality, variety and volume of seminars offered. There are more than 200 free seminars during the course of the show and advanced seminars through Boat Show University for a nominal fee. Many presenters are returning and there are 50 new seminars.

New tourism opportunities in Bimini thanks to the return of the Legendary Big Game Club

January 09, 2012

Situated in a popular yacht charter destination – the Bahamas, including 700 islands sweeping across 500 miles of open ocean, Bimini has become a media darling in 2011, as a large number of journalists from around the world have re-discovered this tiny island in the stream.

The Island of Bimini, Bahamas

At the forefront of the news surrounding Bimini in 2011, was the successful re-opening of the historic Big Game Club, a legendary 51-room fishing resort, fully renovated and repositioned as a Guy Harvey Outpost Resort and Marina. Dr. Harvey, known internationally for his marine wildlife art and conservation initiatives, and his Outpost Resorts partners, drove home the message that not only was one of the most legendary offshore angling outposts of all time back in operation, it was also re-inventing itself in a tourism market, where eco-systems and bio-diversity are considerations when promoting traditional pursuits such as fishing, diving and boating.

“In addition to dozens of traditional sport fishing and diving media, the Big Game Club’s return and Bimini´s ever-intriguing storylines drew travel journalists from Switzerland, Spain, Canada and the Netherlands and several US based television news and cable TV operations, we even had the Food Channel here doing a piece on Lionfish, which we catch, prepare and serve in our dining room,” said Michael Weber, General Manager of the Big Game Club.

“We also successfully returned to tournament fishing with the launch of the First Annual Billfish Invitational last May as well as hosting events with Hatteras and Bertram Yachts, which celebrated their 50th anniversary here.”

As the result of the local publicity and Bahamas Tourism Board promotions, according to Weber, guest visits are improving and a new wave of tourism interest in Bimini is beginning to build. Bahamas out-island tourism, according to reports through October 2011, showed visitor numbers were up 13% year-to-date.

The Big Game Club is continuing to build its own tourism focused base in 2012, promoting its traditional water sports activities along with a new push for meetings, weddings and group related programs.

Weber said the recent completion of the Gulfstream Conference Center and Hemingway´s Rum Bar & Social Lounge will be heavily promoted as a convenient out-island venue for corporate, scientific and social group events.

Inspired by the renewed public interest, airlift into Bimini continues to improve into 2012.

Bimini has scheduled air access by several carriers including:

Silver Airways Corp, a new regional carrier launched with assets from the former Gulfstream International Airlines, (the code sharing partner of Continental/United) has acquired a new aircraft (34-seat Saab 340), which should be in service by February/March 2012. At present Silver has increased their frequency to two flights daily from Fort Lauderdale.

IBC Airways currently operates with Saab 30 passenger aircraft out of Fort Lauderdale International Airport with four times a week service.

Western Air services Bimini via Nassau with two flights daily.

For North Florida residents AirGate Aviation has announced regular scheduled service to Bimini.

Tropic Ocean Airways is the newest member to the Big Game Club offering seaplane service to Bimini from Fort Lauderdale Sheltair  on a charter basis and as a scheduled carrier in March.

For scheduling flights, Weber said its recommended to use the Outpost Travel Concierge Service through the Big Game Club’s reservation office:

Another potential public transportation service is The Bahamas Express, a high-speed ferry service currently linking Fort Lauderdale and Freeport in the Bahamas. Future plans call for more regular service ports, including Bimini (tentatively March 2012).

Attracting the bulk of travelers to Bimini, according to Weber, will be the traditional blue water angling, backcountry fly fishing and diving pursuits offered at the Bimini Big Game Club and other properties.

“New for 2012, we hope to add water sports activities such as kayaking and kayak nature tours, kite-boarding and instruction and paddle boards,” Weber added.

As for the more traditional pursuits:

Located on the main navigation channel in Bimini Bay, The Big Game Club provides a 75-slip marina capable of accommodating yachts up to 145 feet in length. Boaters crossing the stream to Bimini and The Big Game are asked to call the US Marina Reservations Office to arrange for slip accommodations and confirm other special requirements.

Offshore charters are currently available through noted Carolina sportfishing captain Skipper Gentry and his 46¹ Post powered with 625 hp diesels.

The Big Game Club is also represented on Bimini´s record setting backcountry flats with fly fishing guru Vaughn Cochran at the helm of Bonefish Bimini. Neal Watson, known fondly as the ´Dive God´ for his superhuman record breaking scuba records, has launched Neal Watson´s Dive Bimini, a Guy Harvey Outpost Dive Center featuring Bimini Blue, the largest recreational dive boat in the Bahamas.

“Bimini has no shortage of great dive sites: Reefs, Wrecks, Walls, Drift Dives, our famous Atlantis Road and a truly amazing Wild Dolphin Encounter – you name it,” said Watson.  “And did I mention, Shark Encounters?” he asks with a grin.

As for future dive sites, an effort currently is underway to sink the tugboat, Manatee, south of Turtle Rocks to make a good dive site in prevailing northeasterly winds. The Manatee is currently docked in South Bimini.

The new Motion Code: Blue 50M yacht concept

November 08, 2011

The Austrian design studio Motion Code: Blue have unveiled their latest 50 metre motor yacht design – the MY 50M MC:B Superyacht. The unique and revolutionary 50-metre motor yacht is available upon request and boasts great potential to become an excellent and eye-catching charter yacht.

The main aim of the design was to develop a trend setting and unique shape to revolutionise today’s super yacht design by its modern appearance. The 50M MC:B yacht is meant to be long lasting, elegant and eye-catching.

The design studio and their client want to reach a modern, design oriented target group wanting to set themselves apart from the mass.

When the managing directors of mc:b had their first meeting with their clients, they said: “We want a stunning design. If the yacht appears at Port Hercules in monaco, everyone should be overwhelmed. Design something like this”.

So the design studio developed a revolutionary concept, which goes hand in hand with their core design philosophy: most advanced, yet acceptable.

Straight lines, automotive shapes and a wave piercing stem design are the main characteristics of the motor yacht MC:B 50M

50m Motion Code Blue superyacht design

For the designers, it was very important to develop a sporty, coupe’-like design with no additive deck arrangement by stapling deck over deck. The so called cake-effect should be avoided. Nevertheless it was necessary that the yacht provides the full interior space and its common amenities on all 4 decks.

In order to manage this, motion code: blue developed the so called  “C-bracket”  a leading and very distinctive design element.

The bracket starts on the fore deck, stretches the side view of the yacht optically and spans a bow up to the upper deck.

This innovative 50m mc:b yacht design feature enables a modern, integrative deck arrangement and the vessel appears very automotive, compact and sporty but also impressive and powerful from the rear side.

“The rear view and the stern section is one of  the most important issues when you design a yacht, you have to appear bigger and wider than your neighbour at port, even when you have the same length”, say Christian Gumpold and Christopher Gloning, managing directors of motion code: blue.

Additionally the studio developed different stem designs to let potential customers decide the grade of progressiveness they want to give their new MC:B 50m yacht.

There is a wide range from positive over vertical to negative stem designs possible. the overall appearance of the yacht is always unique.

The innovative exterior design concept  can be seen in the interior as well. the owners loft  on the upper deck and a large private terrace are trend setting in this market segment..a pool  on the fore deck and a spa pool on the flybridge allow a maximum of relaxation.

GOST Phantom replaces the GOST Marine Magellan head unit but will maintain compatibility with the full line of GOST wireless security & monitoring sensors, GOST Inmarsat Satellite GPS Tracking & GOST Watch Surveillance systems.

“GOST Phantom takes the core functionality, reliability, and ease of use from our legacy Marine Magellan while adding greater capabilities, more salient consumer features and an alluring style. This gives boat owners true peace of mind while away from or when sleeping aboard their boat,” said Brian Kane, GOST Director of Research and Development.

GOST Phantom has a completely revamped sleek black design, a crisp blue LCD screen and many enhanced capabilities – including the ability to report simultaneously via text message as well as traditional two-way voice. The unit can support up to 64 wireless sensors for security and monitoring and eight wireless relays to control virtually any AC/DC functions on board. Some of the wireless monitoring options available include high water in the bilge, battery bank low voltage, loss of shore power, temperatures in bait/food freezers, smoke, intrusion and much more.

Marinized wireless deck pressure sensors, door/hatch sensors, dual optical passive infrared motion sensors and pull sensors alert to intrusion or potential theft of a vessel. Relays can be programmed to activate a siren and flashing lights when a sensor is triggered to get would-be thieves off a boat immediately. When an event occurs, GOST Phantom will contact up to eight phone numbers with a voice and/or text message letting you know the vessel’s status and the event that has occurred. Key fob control allows for easy arming/disarming and display the system’s status using visual (LED) and auditory feedback. The unit also allows for independent arming/disarming of two separate partitions such as main quarters & crew/utility quarters on the vessel, offering two independent security systems in one.

GOST Phantom owners can remotely call in from any phone to check the status, arm/disarm the system, control output switches, leave voice mail messages for friends and crew or call in to have two way conversations with those on board through the unit’s hands free built-in speaker phone. The unit can also be set to discreetly make calls when certain user codes are entered to disarm the system so owners know exactly who is on board the vessel and when they are there (up to 16 users).
For more information about GOST Phantom and other GOST marine security, monitoring and tracking systems, visit booth 385 in the Electronics Tent at FLIBS 2011.

“One does not travel in order to arrive, but for the sake of travel itself”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The OPEN WATER 60 M Superyacht Design

Introduction
“OPEN WATER 60 M” is an Explorer Yacht with a length of 197 feet/ 60 metres. The oceangoing Explorer layout combines the amenities of a luxury yacht with the requirements of world-wide journeys and extended self-sufficient operations in remote sea areas, with maximally reduced ecological footprint. “Infinite possibilities for world-wide journeys”

The exterior of the Explorer is simple, straightforward and follows a modern, clear expression of form. Its function as long-distance cruising vehicle with ample storage space on and below deck combined with the amenities of a comfortable Superyacht is emphasized by a functional, smooth as well as elegant line management.

This individuality is mirrored in an exceptionally high recall value. Design and function ideally complement each other.

Ecology
Reduction: this is the answer to the increasingly noticeable trend to a responsible-minded use of resources in the sector of Superyachts. This superscription influences all areas and functions of the Explorer and leads to a holistic reinterpretation without having to abandon familiar key features.
The ecological footprint is reduced at most through high-tech systems and intelligent designs. The design communicates this advance through a likewise reduced, straight design that is purposely without frills and which responds formally to the
prevailing atmosphere of change and the changing values in the luxury segment.

Environmental compatibility: “Responsible-minded use of resources is reflected in the reduced design”

Global Superyacht Forum 2010

November 29, 2010

Major players in the Superyacht Arena met in Amsterdam for three days of intense debate, powerful networking and business development at the industry’s largest and most valuable conference event, the Global Superyacht Forum.

All of the major players from Lurssen, Feadship, Burgess, Heesen, AmelsEspen Oeino Design, Redman Whiteley Dixon, Royal HuismanAbeking & Rasmussen, Benetti, Moomussennen, YCO, Edmiston, YPI, Dohle, Rybovich, CMN, Thyssen Krupp, Camper & Nicholsons, Hill Robinson and Watkins will be in attendance representing hundreds of yachts, new build and existing, not to mention the Captains and Owners representatives from several major new builds.

Global Superyacht Forum 2010: Day One -

Once again leading industry figures have gathered in Amsterdam for the Global Superyacht Forum (GSF), hosted by SuperyachtEvents – a division of The Yacht Report Group. 400 delegates will attend over the course of three days to digest the most important issues facing the market right now, led by a group of dynamic speakers.

Day One of GSF opened with Keynote session 1, led by Richard Beattie owner of the 45m superyacht Big Fish, delivered this year for Aquos Yachts by McMullen & Wing. Joining him on stage were Jim Gilbert of Aquos Yachts and Chairman Martin Redmayne. Beattie welcomed the delegates into his world, proclaiming his passion for both motor yacht Big Fish and Aquos Yachts – describing the business model as ‘new yachts for a new age.’ Having chartered and owned yachts before, Beattie described Big Fish as a revelation in terms of what could be experienced on board a superyacht.  There is a new generation of potential owners who should be being marketed to and attracted to the market. Beattie stressed the importance of enticing new owners through charter, expressing his belief that if many of those able to afford yachts were just made aware of ‘wow factor’ of the experience on offer, they would be easily converted to the idea of ownership. Getting these potential new clients to undertake their first charter is key to the future of the industry. MotoryachtBig Fish will be followed by the 50m  expedition yacht Star Fish in 2012.

The second session of the day, Paper 2 – State of the World’s Wealth vs. the State of the Superyacht Industry, featured a panel of Michael Breman, President of SYBAss, Tine A. Willumsen of Above & Beyond, and Milton Pedraza, President of the Luxury Society in New York. Having just heard from Richard Beattie, a hugely positive owner enthusing about the industry, the second session examined ways in which the industry could broaden its horizons to market itself widely and in new ways. The two external High Net Worth specialists, Pedraza and Willumsen, provided expertise on related luxury markets and a wave of enthusiasm for the potential of the superyacht market. Their overwhelming message was to rethink the way we communicate with the emerging new buyers from the BRIC economies, all of who have seen treble digit growth in their wealth since 2009. Breman reminded the audience not to overstate the market, urging “cautious optimism”. As the pre-recession orders deliver there is a need to replace at least a percentage of these orders in order to sustain the market.

‘There is a difference between worth and value: a yacht is worth what someone will pay for it.’ The final session, Valuations vs. Realistic Prices attempted to take the definition of value beyond that pragmatic statement.  Over the course of the session delegates learnt of different ways of looking at valuation. From the discussion  undertaken it was clear that valuation has a different meaning for different areas of the industry; for example shipyards, brokers, surveyors, insurers. The fundamental applies that it’s ‘worth’, if not it’s value, is indeed what someone will pay for it. The key question raised during the session was would a valuation model work to give new clients and existing clients more confidence in the markets stability. The audience felt that it would make sense but with sio many variables the hedonic regression model that was presented is just a starting point. Perhaps it is too premature, however there is no reason in the next few years that some clever individual may not come forward and develop it. This concept will be further investigated by the Superyacht Intelligence team using commercial shipping, aviation and real estate models. Global Superyacht Forum 2010

Day One of the Global Superyacht Forum was concluded by a Welcome Drinks session, allowing attending delegates to network and relax after a fascinating days insight into the key issues facing the industry. The overwhelming message of the day was one of positive energy mixed with cautious optimism. The need to attract new blood to the market is paramount and we need to work together and think broadly to achieve this.

Global Superyacht Forum: Day Two –

Day Two of Global Superyacht Forum opened with one of the most worrying issues facing the industry today: the ILO MLC 2006. Paper 4 – International Labour Organisations Maritime Convention 2006 featured a panel of Captain Rodney Hatch, motor yacht Turquoise; Chris van Hooren, Technical and Environmental Director of SYBAss (Superyacht Builders Association); Peter Southgate, Advisor – Maritime Policy & Legislation Development and Shipping Master of the Cayman Registry; Paul Coley, Assistant Director of Seafarers and Ships – Maritime and Coastguard Agency; and Andrew Schofield, PYA and Master of M/Y  White Rose of Drachs.

Global Superyacht Forum 2010 Day 2

Coley was able to finally reveal the finished proposal to make MLC 2006 yacht friendly. As was widely expected the route of substantial equivalence has been taken; an approach echoing that which brought LY1 and 2 into being. While still needing some evolution is was clear from van Hooren’s presentation that the proposal was going a long way towards answering the needs of the industry. MLC 2006 had the potential to be extremely damaging to the industry so it was very encouraging to see that this was finally not to be the case. Southgate diverged from the main concern of accommodation size and gave a broad overview of the social, or ‘soft’, aspect of MLC 2006. While most of these aspects are currently in law he explained that by bringing them into one single convention and making the enforcement more robust it would offer real protection to seafarers. Clearly this is a timely move as Southgate told attendees that he had received at least two complaints from seafarers each month this year, the majority of whom were working on yachts.

Paper 5 – Technical Presentation – Yacht’s Lifecycle Management was led by a panel of Arjan Kleinveld, Managing Director of Van Berge Henegouwen, and Dennis Mol, Business Director of Yachts at Imtech. During the session Kleinveld and Mol explained and contrasted CAPEX and OPEX (respectively capital and operational expenditure for superyachts). With specific reference to the AV systems on board two experts detailed how effective control of these two fiscal aspects of yacht operation can not only control and reduce expenditure but also raise efficiency levels and ensure greater owner satisfaction.

After a busy networking lunch came Paper 6 – Project Management – An Insight into the commercial shipping industry, presented by Thomas Eefsen, Sales and Marketing Manager at Maersk Maritime Technology. Eefsen gave an extensive and detailed presentation on how his business unit of Maersk worked through-build as, what would be dubbed an owners representative in our industry. The procedure was similar in broad view to ours but in interesting detail there were variations from which important lessons can be gained for superyacht construction. What this type of approach can bring was well illustrated by a recent client of Maersk’s division, Svitzer. Captain Grant Thompson of M/Y Kogo described for delegates the advantages that Svitzer’s approach brought during a recent Lloyd’s five year survey. Svitzer, rather than simply implement manufacturers recommended procedures, actually analysed the condition and usage of the machinery. They then proposed the recommended procedures to class and implemented them, bringing significant savings, the degree of which were clearly extensive, though exact figures could not be revealed to the audience.

The final session of the day was Paper 7 – 13-36 Passenger Code – What it all means? The panel leading the session was made up of Peter Southgate, Cayman Registry; Simon Milne, Manager, Vessel Policy Branch, Maritime Coastguard Agency; Richie Blake, Principal Surveyor, Cayman Registry; Paul Coley, Assistant Director of Seafarers and Ships, Maritime and Coastguard Agency; and Angus Lamming, Senior Surveyor, Isle of Man Ship Registry.

Here, some two years on from it’s first presentation at GSF, the widely anticipated passenger yacht code (PYC), also known as 13-36, was presented in its final form for the first time by Peter Southgate. This code is the result of two and half years work by REG (Red Ensign Group). The Cayman Island Shipping Registry (CISR) took the lead in terms of writing the code, however the input from all the members of REG was clear, especially through the additional presentations of Milne, Blake, Coley and Lamming.  Southgate informed delegates that the Category 2 registries had given useful input to the code. Significantly, too, attendees learned that during the consultation procedure 40 per cent of industry comments were incorporated into the code. It was also explained that this is not a code connected to LY2, nor an enhancement thereof, but a standalone code and indeed one that is aimed at a relatively strong niche in the industry. Though nominally it could be applied to any vessel over 24m, realistically it’s much more suitable for the very much larger yacht. Equally, though it could be applied in refit, the depth of requirement is such that only the most full conversions would be likely to be able to comply. Though niche, we learned that there are currently eleven vessels in build and three in the design phase, flagging into Cayman that were applying the code already; all over 90metres!

Day Two was closed by the Global Superyacht Forum dinner, hosted for a second year at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant. A walking dinner, in fantastic surroundings, provided yet another ideal opportunity for delegates to network and discuss the key points made during the day’s debate.

Global Superyacht Forum 2010: Day Three –

The final day of Global Superyacht Forum 2010 opened with Paper 8 – VAT & Harmonisation – is it even possible? Co-chairing the debate was John Leonida of Clyde & Co, with a panel of Carlo Galli – Clifford Chance; James Lawson – Hill Dickinson and Lorenzo Pollicardo – Federeganti Yacht. The general answer to whether VAT and harmonisation is possible was that it currently wasn’t although someday it may be more so.  The panel illustrated the problems faced, referring to such examples as the seizure of motor yacht Force Blue. Generally, however, the consensus was that provided the rules are actually followed the French Commercial Exemption (FCE) law is still useful and applicable for superyachts with a genuine charter programme. One strategy adopted by some owners for peace of mind is to pay the VAT regardless of whether they may be able to avoid its payment. Various leasing schemes were also discussed which currently are fully functional within the EU though some members of the panel clearly felt that those that involved paying very minimal VAT may well potentially have a short shelf life.

The second session of the day was Paper 9 – Technical paper – The Truth Behind Satellite Communications. On the panel were Barbara Bersani – Marlink; Kartik Sinha – Inmarsat and Derik Wagner – MTN Satellite Communications. For this paper the panelists outlined the differences in service providers amongst Tier 1 and Virtual service providers. The focus was on examining what owners want, what they actually need, and what they get on their yachts.

Following the final networking lunch came the much-anticipated Paper 10 – Owners investing in the industry. Co-Chaired by Paul Miller – Underwriting Risk Services Ltd – the Paper was presented by Salim Erdem – Merit Gemicilik A S / Moonen and Sean Ewing of Pinmar. As well as being a superyacht owner, with another under construction, Erdem acquired the majority shares in Moonen Shipyards in 2009. Ewing too has invested in the industry by purchasing the majority share in Pinmar, which was previously held by the Ferretti Group, and is now Pinmar’s Chairman. Erdem’s and Ewing’s views on the industry were highly personal, diverse, interesting and contradtiong. Erdem clearly saw yachting as an emotional and artistic venture and even went so far as to say that he didn’t feel a yard should necessarily make a profit.  Ewing, whose background is in financial services and the investment sector, took a much more numbers and business practice related view. Both offered delegates serious insight into the mind of the yacht owner and the HNWI and Ewing in particular provided a ‘to do’ or wish list for the industry, that has in recent times been hampered by crisis, to improve its performance. In the subsequent coffee break it was clear that this was one of the most, if not the most, popular session of the entire event.

After the inspiring presentation by Erdem and Ewing came the final two papers which focused on the always topical subject of paint.  First was Paper 11 – Technical paper – Coatings I with a panel of Alessandro Gallifuoco – Benetti; Ken Hickling – Awlgrip and Tom de Vries – The De Vries Group. The panel, made up of members of the SYBAss coatings working group, brought the latest thinking in coatings standards to the stage. Although the ISO standards have not been finalised as yet delegates were told that that they are coming soon, perhaps as early as next year. It was also learned that the ISO standards are not absolute but rather act as a framework for assessing the coating. This means that absolute values are not incorporated simply to standardise and define how the measurements must be taken and which measurements must be taken.

The final debate of GSF 2010 was Paper 12 – Technical paper – Coatings II with a panel of Dr. Benigna v. Brederlow – Wrede Consulting; Remy Millott – Pinmar and Kay Wrede – Wrede Consulting. Continuing with the theme of standards Millot and his co-presenters explained Pinmars new definitive painting standard. This standard contains a number of measurements to be made and a regime for making them. But in contrast to the previous paper the standard does provide absolute values, or in fact a range of values. Millot commented that these are not easy to achieve but believes that Pinmar can in fact achieve them consistently. By implication these absolutes should also be achievable by any other applicator of equivalent quality. The standards and the numbers are open and available to all within the industry and were developed in consultation with manufacturers and paint consultants. Wrede Consultancy collaborated with Pinmar, aiding them with the scientific aspects of developing the standard. Delegates were surprised to learn that all the effort that they had put in was gratis, similar to Pinmar’s making the standard open and available to the industry.

With the debate complete the 2010 Global Superyacht Forum closed with the Global Superyacht Party, the theme of which was ‘Shore Leave’. If the whole three day event could be summarised in one feeling it was that the industry needs to look at wider thinking, drawing on the expertise and experience of related luxury industries. Drawing new blood into the industry is key and thinking outside of the box outside of that box may be the key route to doing so.

A few months before the opening of the 33rd Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show, the big names in international boatbuilding have redoubled their drive and ingenuity to adapt their offer to the new world order. If the world of pleasure boats and luxury yachts has been heavily hit throughout the 2008/2009 season by the worsening economic conditions, it seems the time has now come for a slight recovery, supported by the unwavering interest of the yachting fraternity. There is no doubt that the new models and world previews will be at the port of Cannes starting 8 September.

Already in 2009, in the midst of the crisis, French and international shipyards showed a capacity for innovation and exceptional resource to cope with the downturn in the market. In 2010, this concern is still relevant more than ever, and has paid dividends at many levels: new hulls, choice designs, and ever more irreproachable quality of service, etc.

Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show Photo from above

And because there cannot be boating activities without a protected environment, the incorporation of environmental considerations is now one of the catalysts of the market: new engine types, hybrid engines, solar panels, LED lighting… As for the craft labelled “Bateau bleu” that comply with marine regulations, there will be many boats presenting equipment that allows better protection of the environment.

The Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show

Thanks to a particularly rich offering on the one hand and top quality visitors on the other, the Cannes Boat and Yacht Show enjoys a reputation that now reaches beyond the boundaries of Europe. With 50% of the exhibitors coming from 25 countries, Cannes has established itself as a resolutely international event. While exhibitors from European countries still are the ones most represented, through the presence of French, Italian, British, Spanish and German shipyards, Eric de Saintdo, the show’s manager, is very pleased about the growing number of exhibitors from the United States, Russia, the Arab Emirates, Asia and even the emergence of Turkey whose boats offers a very high calibre of construction and finishing. According to Eric de Saintdo, “the Cannes Boat and Yacht Show constitutes an exceptional venue for the major players in international yachting to do business: a great many of them have indeed acknowledged filling their order books!”

Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show Promotion art

The biggest names in international boatbuilding have already signed up for the show. Along the pontoons, visitors will therefore once again be able to find the symbols of exceptional know-how: Azimut Benetti, Baglietto, Beneteau, Cantieri di Pisa, Ferretti Group, Jeanneau, Peri Yachts, Pershing, Princess, Riva, Rodriguez Group, Sanlorenzo, Sunseeker, Heesen Yachts, and Wally,… They will also be able to discover a “newcomer”, the shipyard Monte Carlo Yachts, which will be launching its very first yacht, the MCY 76, a Cannes exclusive, on 8 September.

The 33rd show will naturally include the major features that made it so successful, namely a particularly comprehensive offering of small and large craft, both sail and motor, 95% of which will be displayed in water and able to be taken out on sea trials.

The Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show 2010

It should also be noted that in 2010, the Cannes Boat and Yacht Show will have a significantly increased number of large sailing boats and catamarans on display.

Owned and hosted by the French Nautical Industries Federation (F.I.N.) the Cannes International Boat and Yacht Show is organised by Reed Exhibitions France, with the collaboration of the Alps Maritime Departmental Council, the Nice Côte d’Azur Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Cannes.

Superyachts launched in April 2010

May 04, 2010

There have been a number of superyachts launched during April 2010. Here are the biggest and best yachts CharterWorld have featured throughout the month.

87m Lürssen motor yacht Phoenix 2 launched

On the 8th April 2010 Lürssen launched luxury motor yacht Phoenix 2. SUPERYACHT Phoenix 2′S delivery to her owner is scheduled for summer 2010 which is ahead of the new build schedule. The original 60 metre superyacht Phoenix was launched at Lürssen in 2004. Due to her success it led to her owner developing a new project with the same team which includes Andrew Winch Designs, Moran Yacht & Ship and the Lürssen shipyard. The resulting yacht is the eagerly awaited and recently launched Phoenix II.

Superyacht PHOENIX 2

Superyacht Phoenix 2 is by no means a simple sequel to the first yacht. She has been carefully designed and constructed to ensure that the essence of the original yacht has been kept; but as her new name appropriately suggests, she has been “squared” in both her complexity and size making her a much bigger and far more beautiful yacht.

The exterior of luxury yacht Phoenix 2 was designed by Andrew Winch Designs and incorporates both elegant and streamlined lines that are complemented by more than 100 metres of polished stainless steel handrails uniquely shaped and installed. Her sundeck offers a generous swimming pool with separate Spa Pool and an exterior cinema. The new Phoenix’s sky lounge opens out to an inside/outside dining area complete with glass screens creating the ultimate dining experience.

The imaginative use of furnishings, fabrics and furniture on the Lürssen yacht Phoenix II is influenced by the New York 1930’s era, is incorporated into her unique general arrangement which has been carefully designed to provide the clients with exactly the style and practicality of the yacht they require. A beautiful full beam Deco Duplex apartment for the owner’s suite offers unrivalled and undisturbed views out to sea. A private staircase joins the two floors together whilst a private foredeck complete with Spa Pool offers exterior privacy to the client.

Megayacht Graffiti (Project 783) being launched

GRAFFITI (Hull number 783) is expected to be delivered in 2011.

Mr Andreas Breitner, the Mayor of Rendsburg and the yacht owners were among the guests invited to the celebratory launch of new build project 783, GRAFFITI. The yacht owners, managing directors and project leaders gave speeches about the excellent project cooperation, praising the successfully completed work.

Nobiskrug Yachts of Germany recently launched the sister ship to GRAFFITI called MOGAMBO yacht (hull 782). The hull is based on mega yacht SIREN and when completed should also be launched officially in 2011. These are 3 of the five yachts Nobiskrug has in build at the moment.

A 65 metre super yacht FAMILY DAY launched by Codecasa

The 65 metre superyacht Family Day was launched recently by the shipyard Codecasa. The owner of the Cantieri Navali Codecasa in Viareggio, Fulvio Codecasa, introduced the newest motor yacht Family Day, Codecasa 65 Hull S 71 with the following words:

“With her 65 metres of LOA, 18 knots speed in absolute comfort, her elegant interior design, very modern navigation and communication equipment, the application of the most up to date technologies in order to obtain the most elevated performance standards, all these characteristics make Family Day a unique jewel of its kind”.

Motor Yacht Family Day at her launch by Cantieri Navali Codecasa – Viareggio Italy

The 2010 Family Day superyacht offers very modern and gentle lines, in particular, the construction offers an extended stern. The extended stern is more inclined than any previous Codecasa, which gives her an even more sporty look, however on the other hand remaining very elegant and sleek. There is a large space inside and out throughout  the areas onboard. For example, the area dedicated to relaxation, surrounds the large spa pool on on the bridge-deck forward with sofas, coffee tables, armchairs and sun-beds.

The Owner’s suite on the luxurious Codecasa Family Day super yacht, is offering a large space, including the owner’s studio with an openable bulkhead able to transform itself, when required, into a fantastic balcony with sea views. The remainder of the other six guest cabins, have also a larger space dedicated to them, as well as the lounge area and all of the other relaxation areas onboard. The internal decorative lines are by architects Anna Maria and Franco Della Role, with the owners contribution as well. They can be described as simple and extremely modern.

The vessels main characteristic is the dining room, located on the bridge-deck, occupying the whole area, usually dedicated to the bridge lounge. The round table,  positioned at the centre of the dining room,  can accommodate up to 16 guests. There is an elevator connecting all the five levels of the Family Day superyacht, from the tank deck to the sun deck.

The vessel has been built following the Lloyd’s Register and MCA rules, mounts Caterpillar engines and offers the best navigation and communication electronic equipment. Conceived to be ocean-going, she is also fitted with Quantum anchor “zero speed” stabilizers. The delivery to her Owner is scheduled for June 2010.

Once Family Day is launched, the Codecasa slipway will be occupied by a 50 metre motoryacht, whose construction is to be finished by summer 2011. Their twin yard, located nearby, is in charge of a construction of a 65 metre yacht,which is already on the way and will be launched on the 5th of June. After this date, the slipway will be dedicated to the construction of the first new 42 metre yacht of the Codecasa Vintage Series.

To complete Codecasa’s full building schedule, there is a launching of the 46 metre open motoryacht of Maria Carla series, due to be launched at the end of the May. The Codecasa Due shipyard is currently underway with the construction of numerous All Weather Rescue Boats for the Italian Coast Guard, the fifth unit of which is supposed to be delivered in the next few days.

62m Super Sailing Yacht ATHOS a Holland Jachtbouw Schooner 2010

Holland Jachtbouw Yachts, Holland has launches the modern classic schooner sailing yacht Athos. Superyacht ATHOS is now the world’s largest privately owned two masted schooner. Measuring 62m overall and designed by Andre Hoek, the operation to bring luxury yacht Athos to water involved a dramatic journey through the Dutch countryside.

Holland Jachtbouw Sailing Yacht ATHOS at launch 2010

Too heavy to lift with a crane, the wheels of a giant trailer were carefully inserted under the cradle and the entire 400-tonne structure was carefully driven on to a pontoon. The next stage of this major logistical operation saw the barge and its precious cargo towed on a two-day journey from our yard in Zaandam (close to Amsterdam) to the northern Dutch port of Harlingen. It was here that Athos’ deep-V hull made her first contact with the water as the yacht was launched by a massive 2000-tonne lift.

The sailing yacht ATHOS was then towed on her own keel back to the HJB yard, where we are mow making a start with stepping Athos’ phenomenal rig. At 62m, the main mast is the longest built by Rondal or anyone else in Holland and, like the 15m fore boom and 23.5m main boom, is made of carbon fibre.

Holland Jachtbouw ATHOS at launch

A technical marvel in every respect, sea trials of this breathtaking superyacht will begin shortly.

At 62 metres, superyacht Athos will be the world’s largest privately owned, modern two-mast schooner when she is launched in 2010. Her deep-V hull arrived at the yard in February 2008 after being built and engineered in partnership with our sub-contractor. The structure is made of the special high modulus 5383 aluminium, making Athos the largest sailing yacht yet built in this super-strong alloy. We are building her to MCA specifications and Veritas rules.

The Yacht Owner’s privacy
Designed by our colleagues at Hoek Naval Architects, Athos has a shallow draught keel and integrated centre board. Her 11-metre beam provides ample interior volume, including a private owners’ area aft with deckhouse and cockpit. The full beam owner’s suite will feature a large bathroom between the owner’s deckhouse and bedroom, as well as a walk-in closet and a wealth of locker space. Direct access is provided to the owner’s deckhouse and owner’s cockpit on the aft deck. Privacy is assured in the deckhouse by having the wheel positioned forward of this location.

Forward of the owner’s suite will be four good sized guest suites. The main deckhouse will have a large dining area to starboard, with a lounge and stewardess area to port. The lower saloon is arranged as a large library to starboard, with a galley opposite that can be either open or closed. Cooking will be an integral part of the interior set-up as the owners also enjoy creating haute cuisine. Forward are a large crew mess, crew galley, five crew cabins, and a large separate captains-chief engineer’s office with an integrated control room.

Sailing Prowess
Sailing yacht Athos will have a 1980 m² upwind sail area on carbon spars, while a mast height of 62 metres will ensure that she can pass the Bridge of the Americas. An almost entirely pushbutton-operated rig will include furling booms on boomvangs, carbon spars and captive winches on sheets and halyards.

The twin main engines of ATHOS will drive controllable pitch propellers, while two diesel and two shaft generators provide a parallel power supply. First class maneuverability is assured thanks 150kw retractable bow-and stern thrusters. Athos will have a flyboat on the forepeak and two Vago dinghies in lockers adjacent to the deckhouse.

60 metre SuperYacht Mimtee launched by CRN

CRN Shipyard of Ancona has launched their new  60 metre superyacht named Mimtee. It is the fifth 60 metre hull to come out of CRN since 2005.

Superyacht Mimtee by CRN Ancona at her launch party

The superyacht Mimtee was sold to the owner by company’s Middle East agent, Sea Pros, who also are responsible for numeral sales over the past few years.

Amongst the guests present at the launch ceremony, other then her owners and family, were the employees involved in her construction and design, as well as the management of the Ferretti Group.

Lamberto Tacoli, Vice President Sales and Marketing of the Ferretti Group and Chairman of CRN S.p.A. said:

“We are particularly proud to launch our fifth 60 metre hull which is a great success not only for CRN, but for the entire Ferretti Group which, once more, distinguishes itself for excellent quality and for being in the forefront of the international nautical sector, confirming the strategy of aiming for the highest productive standards and the most ambitious objectives in terms of performance”.

Superyacht ‘Addiction’ the first AMELS 177 & Yacht Bel Abri, the first Limited Editions Amels 171 for charter

Motor Yacht ADDICTION:

Built for a repeat customer, the first AMELS 177 has passed her acceptance sea trials three weeks ahead of schedule.

Early photos of the brand new AMELS 177 reveal the typically sleek lines of a classic Tim Heywood design. Photographed during her acceptance trials on the North Sea, ‘Addiction’ is the latest yacht to be ordered by a repeat client of Dutch superyacht builder AMELS.

‘Addiction’ has been completed in good time for the European yachting season. She passed her acceptance trials with flying colours, earning sign-off from the owner’s representative and Lloyds Register in just a single day. “This is a very good start to the launch of our AMELS 177 range,” commented managing director of AMELS, Rob Luijendijk. “The success of the LIMITED EDITIONS concept is already well proven with our existing models. As with our other premium semi-custom designs, we believe the AMELS 177 offers all of the benefits of personalisation that you would find with a pure custom build – but without the long design process and technical risks.”

The 177-footer is an evolution of the very successful AMELS 171, of which six yachts have now been launched. British designer Tim Heywood drew the lines of both the 171 and 177. “The additional 2 metres of the AMELS 177 serve both an aesthetic and functional purpose,” said Heywood. “The longer hull makes it possible to create an even more elegant, sleeker profile, while also creating the space for a very generous 30sqm Beach Club at the stern, a luxury area close to the water for the owner and his guests to enjoy.”

A very large transom door and integrated hydraulic crane make it possible to handle large personal watercraft such as Jet Skis with ease. There is even the option of a touch-and- go helicopter pad.

The sleek and feminine lines of the AMELS 177 have been further enhanced by the distinctive Moondust coloured hull paint, whose sophisticated tones contrast very effectively with the Oyster White superstructure and charcoal-grey accents. The interior design of Addiction has been created from a combination of two of the best design houses in the superyacht industry, Nuvolari Lenard of Italy and Axel Vervoordt of Belgium.

Sir Ian Collett of yacht consultancy Ward & McKenzie, the project managers and owner’s representative commented: “Our team was impressed by the level of organisation and professionalism of the AMELS team. ‘Addiction’ is the second successful vessel we have built with the company. This, the first 177, is a beautiful design by Tim Heywood and well constructed by AMELS. All in all, this project has been an interesting, exciting and pleasurable experience for the buyer’s team.”

After delivery, the yacht Addiction will be managed by Verpeka Yacht Brokerage, based in Monaco. Managing director Nataliya Verpeka, who moved from her native Russia to the Mediterranean 18 years ago to pursue a career in international yachting management, commented on the AMELS 177: “I was privileged to be on board Addiction for the very first acceptance sea trial of this new AMELS model, and was very impressed with the yacht’s performance. Having been closely involved with other projects, I know how rare it is for a yacht to come through its initial sea trial so smoothly.”

The AMELS yard in Vlissingen is running at full capacity with nine projects currently underway. Rob Luijendijk said: “Considering the challenging economic conditions in the global economy these past two years, we are delighted to be so busy with the planning and build of various yachts in our range, the LIMITED EDITIONS AMELS 171, 177, AMELS 199 and AMELS 212, as well as DAMEN’s 50m and 67m SEA AXE Fast Yacht Support vessels.”

AMELS Yachts is the exclusive yacht-building member of the Dutch DAMEN Shipyards Group, consisting of more than 34 shipyards and marine-related companies throughout the world. DAMEN, a family owned company, employs over 6,700 people, delivered 150 vessels in 2009 and has an annual turnover of approximately €1.4 billion.

Motor Yacht BEL ABRI:

Superyacht BEL ABRI is to be the first Amels 171 Limited Editions to be available for luxury yacht charters. The Amels 171 superyacht has already been very successful and popular amongst mega yacht owners with styling by Tim Heywood and an interior by Laura Sessa Romboli. The Limited Editions Amels 171 allows for some customization and individualisation which enables an owner to get value in terms of price and preferences.

Motor yacht Bel Abri’s owner made the most of the customisation process to increase the size of the owner suite, making a good change for charters. This meant the main-deck starboard stateroom found aboard other 171s was replaced. Outdoor entertainment and alfresco areas were also important, so BEL ABRI features a much larger Spa Pool pool on her sundeck. Also, Sessa Romboli thematically tied some of the interiors to the outdoors, such as the bridge-deck lounge which has white and blue fabrics as well as a variety of mixed woods throughout like maple, sycamore, walnut and zebrano panelling and furnishings. The South American hardwood sucupira is also featured with its chocolate tone and fairly coarse texture.

A large new modern superyacht with accommodation for 12 guests yacht BEL ABRI makes an excellent charter yacht for luxury yacht charter holidays. Please contact CharterWorld for more.

The Launch of the first Sea Axe support vessel OBERON by Amels

Exciting news for the future of the Fast Yacht Support Vessels: The first Sea Axe OBERON was launched by the Dutch shipbuilder Amels.

Oberon is a 50-metre vessel that was built to provide round-the-clock service and support for superyachts and is capable of travelling comfortably at high speeds in almost any sea state, which is possible due to the patented design of her Axe Bow.

She is the first vessel in the Fast Yacht Support market to make use of the Axe Bow, she is also capable of travelling at the top speed of 28 knots. Oberon is already in active service around the Mediterranean. Rob Luijendijk, the managing director of Amels-Holland explains the appeal of these vessels to the yacht owners with these words:

“The Sea Axe has a large capacity and is capable of carrying a helicopter, tenders, toys, fuels, consumables and waste, in addition to staff and relief crew.”

The Axe Bow is a proprietary design created jointly by Damen and Delft University of Technology under the direction of Dr ir J A (Lex) Keuning, associate professor of the Ship Hydromechanics Department. The theory of combining a deep forefoot with a very narrow entry in the bow pointed towards the possibility of significantly reducing the violent slamming motion of a ship in a rough seaway. The theory was subsequently proven with the successful launch of 18 Axe Bow vessels which Damen has delivered for use in patrol, oil-rig supply, and other offshore duties where consistent speed, easy motion, heavy weather reliability, and good fuel economy are all essential factors. Now with Oberon, Amels has taken the proven Axe Bow concept and applied it to a different market, to meet the demands for reliable support vessels among large yacht owners.

OBERON Sea Axe Support Vessel by Amels

The 50-metre Sea Axe is equipped with a 30-metre open deck with a total working area of 230 square metres and 250 tonnes of deck-cargo capacity. The deck crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 14 tonnes when extended to 10 metres. Capable of crossing the Atlantic at a cruising speed of 18 knots, the Sea Axe 5009 can be configured according to the client’s needs. For example, the standard configuration provides accommodation for a maximum 12 crew and staff, although it is possible to provide accommodation for additional staff with a customised layout.
Where comfort and aesthetics often play second fiddle to functionality in the world of the support vessel, the Sea Axe range sets new standards, Luijendijk explains:

“We want to produce Fast Yacht Support vessels whose looks match their high performance, and which complement the mother ship rather than looking like the poor relation. This is why we offer the option of fairing and painting the Sea Axe hull to a standard that you would normally associate with a super yacht rather than support ship.Another option is to finish the deck in Bolidt artificial teak, which is very tough and hard-wearing but looks good too. Equally, we furnish cabins on a Sea Axe to the same standard as a crew interior on an Amels luxury yacht. We asked the market what it wanted from a Fast Yacht Support vessel, and comfort and aesthetics were important requirements. ”

In addition to the Sea Axe 5009, other models in the Sea Axe range are the smaller 3707 and the larger 6711, all available in customized configurations. To date, 24 Axe Bow vessels have been sold, of which 18 have already been delivered.

The Sea Axe range sales and marketing are managed by the shipyard themselves. Amels is the exclusive yacht building member of the Dutch Damen SHipyard Group, consisting of more than 34 shipyard and marine-related companies in the world. Damen employs over 6 700 people and in 2009 delivered 150 vessels, with an annual turnover of 1,4 billion Euros.
