Judges’ Commendation for Dunya motor yacht AXIOMA (ex Red Square) at WSA 2014

May 13, 2014

Dunya Yachts is excited to announce that their motor yacht Axioma (ex Red Square) has been honoured with the Judges’ Commendation in the Displacement Motor Yacht (1,300 – 1,999GT) category at the recent World Superyacht Awards 2014. The awards ceremony took place at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam on Saturday, May 3.

The annual event brings together the most celebrated superyacht builders and designers in the world, to recognise outstanding craftsmanship and visionary design.

The first delivery from superyacht builder Dunya Yachts, superyacht Axioma was nominated in the same category as Delta Marine luxury yacht Invictus, Nobiskrug superyacht Odessa II and Feadship mega yacht Sea Owl.

“We are honoured to receive such a prestigious commendation from the World Superyacht Awards judges,” said Sedat Ergün, Director of Dunya Yachts. “The judging panel is comprised of 18 superyacht owners who have a combined ownership experience extending well into triple figures. To be recognised for quality of build and craftsmanship by such experienced owners is testament to the pedigree we are creating at Dunya Yachts. M/Y Axioma stands out from the global fleet for her groundbreaking features, yet has strong universal appeal for her sophisticated and daring design. We are thrilled to have received such an accolade.”

Dunya Yachts is currently underway with its next project, 82m (269ft) mega yacht Warrior 80, which is available for purchase. From the drawing board of Espen Øino, one of the world’s foremost superyacht designers, the 2,000gt project is just 30 months from completion and offers a superb acquisition opportunity for an owner looking to take delivery of a superyacht of such magnitude in less than three years. The hull is 80 per cent complete, and there is still considerable scope for adaptation to the Warrior 80 yacht’s superstructure and interior design.

ABOUT M/Y AXIOMA (EX RED SQUARE)
72.5M (236ft) displacement yacht (Project DY003)
Launched February 2013
Builder: Dunya Yachts
Exterior Styling: Sterling Scott
Interior Design: Alberto Pinto

Luxury yacht Axioma is Dunya Yachts’ daring debut into the world of superyacht construction. In February 2013, the 72.5m displacement yacht was completed on spec by the yard; she was then sold during the Monaco Yacht Show in September of the same year. A truly global collaboration, the vessel has exterior styling from Sterling Scott and interior design from the late Alberto Pinto (Axioma was his final project to be built while alive).

Axioma superyacht features many revolutionary shifts for the general layout of a vessel of this size. These were made possible by the painstaking attention to detail from the yard’s management team and founder Sedat Ergün. Most striking is the main salon’s double-deck gallery, providing a sense of vast space and light usually reserved for large land-based residences.

For practical purposes, Dunya Yachts brought the gym, spa and steam room up from the lower decks to provide a more inviting environment for guests, and moved the movie theatre to the lower deck. All guest suites have been brought up to the main deck, with expansive windows to showcase the stunning views of the water. Axioma yacht sleeps 12 guests in six suites, including a full beam master suite with panoramic views forward, and she has a crew of 20.

When it came to Axioma yacht’s design, the team chose to spotlight bold style as well as practicality, with an overall design brief of “beach house style”. The vessel’s exterior provides guests with a wide choice of both private and convivial spaces across four decks. Two generous pools, expansive lounging space and dining areas aft are complemented by a secluded lounging and dining area on the bridge deck and a private terrace forward of the master cabin. Albert Pinto’s interior makes use of soft neutrals accented with pops of vibrant colour, which complement a range of natural wood tones and textures.

“We worked with some of the most experienced brains and craftsmen in the business to create a world-class vessel that will continue to be a showcase of what the Dunya Yachts brand can achieve. Axioma is the standard-bearer for our pedigree,” says Ergun of the various suppliers and subcontractor who worked to make her such a stunning vessel, which included:

Awlgrip (Netherlands) – Paint System
C-Quip (NZ) – Forward Light Mast
Caterpillar (USA) – Main Engines and Generators
Cramm (Netherlands) – Hydraulic Moving Parts
Freeman Marine (USA) – Exterior Doors
Heinen & Hopman (Netherlands) – Air Conditioning
Hi-Fog (Finland) – Water Mist System
Lift Emotion (Netherlands) – Elevator
LIST (Austria) – Interior Joinery
Multiplex (Germany) – Sun Awnings
Otto – Piening (Germany) – Propellers
Pacific Coast Marine (USA) – Exterior Doors
Quantum (USA) – Stabilizers
Raytheon (USA) – Navigation Equipment
Roland (Germany) – Main Galley Van Cappellen
Consultancy (Netherlands) – Noise & Vibration Control

Although the experts who consulted and worked on Axioma superyacht were an international mixture, the favourable base labour rate in Turkey meant that she was built for approximately 30 per cent less than comparable shipyards elsewhere in Europe, says Ergün.

Superyacht Axioma was sold at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show and is now available for luxury yacht charter.

Winners of the World Superyacht Awards 2014

May 05, 2014

The newly crowned winners of a prominent Neptune trophy were unveiled at the 9th annual World Superyacht Awards on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The host city of Amsterdam, with its rich maritime history, offered a fitting backdrop as a distinguished audience of superyacht owners as well as industry specialists gathered at the Het Scheepvaartmuseum, Amsterdam’s National Maritime Museum.

The ceremony, which celebrates excellence in superyacht build and design, is the most anticipated event in the superyacht calendar. Throughout the evening, international broadcaster, Natasha Kaplinsky, presented a selection of prized awards to the owners of the finest sail and motor yachts delivered in 2013. A total of twenty-seven coveted Neptune trophies and Judges’ Commendation prizes, custom made for the occasion by Baccarat, were presented throughout the ceremony.

Motor Yacht of the Year was awarded to the 99m Madame Gu
The Motor Yacht of the Year Award honours the very best motor yacht delivered to its owners in 2013, chosen from amongst the winners of the motor yacht classes. Whilst size is not a factor in determining the victor of this award, this year the judges did select the largest yacht of those shortlisted. Built by Feadship–de Vries in Makkum, The Netherlands, with both exterior and interior design from Andrew Winch Designs, motor yacht Madame Gu is widely recognised as one of the most exquisite yachts afloat. It was not just appearance that swayed the judges; a superb quality of structural build, the design and installation of the mechanical elements and systems, and the perfection of interior joinery and decoration was absolutely beyond reproach. This resulted in a unanimous decision to name her as the highly deserved Motor Yacht of the Year.

Sailing Yacht of the Year went to 32.64m Inukshuk
After much consideration of the two sailing yacht class winners – sailing yacht Ganesha and superyacht Inukshuk – the judges voted almost unanimously to select Inukshuk, a 32.6-metre sloop built by Baltic Yachts in Finland, as the winner of this prestigious award. Their decision was largely based on recognition that this yacht provides an optimal balance between excellent sailing performance and the high degree of comfort and customisation offered to its owner. Inukshuk’s elegant looks, which feature uncluttered deck spaces derived from the drawing board of German Frers, state-of-the-art sailing systems and the high standards of construction seen both in the structure of the vessel and its interior finish by Adam Lay Studio, were all factored into the decision.

Voyager’s Award

The Voyager’s Award credits superyacht owners who have undertaken a passage of an unusual or exploratory nature. This award, determined by the jury who have all cruised the world extensively, unusually resulted in the secret ballot creating an exact tie. Rather than breaking the deadlock to determine a single winner, the judges decided to award an equal first place to two owners who have both undergone extraordinary voyages – The owners of superyacht Exuma and luxury yacht Zeepaard.

Superyacht Exuma is a 50-metre motor yacht built by Picchiotti/Perini Navi to a design by Philippe Briand of Vitruvius Yachts. At the design stage, Exuma was specifically customised for cruising the more remote areas of the Pacific and her entry, written personally by the owner, catalogues an example of this: An adventurous voyage, made between 2012 and 2013, that started in New Caledonia and Vanuatu and progressed through the Solomon Islands to Papua New Guinea, Micronesia, Palau, and Sabah ending in the Philippines. Not only was the account well written and beautifully illustrated, it also displayed an enviable depth of knowledge of, and interaction with the various populations encountered throughout the itinerary. The judges considered it to be an excellent example of a cruise that deserved recognition.

Built by JFA Yachts in France in 2003, superyacht Zeepaard is a 37-metre expedition yacht designed for adventurous voyages. Her circumnavigation between 2009 and 2013, starting and finishing in the Mediterranean, certainly qualified as such, covering a total of 50,000nm and 39 countries. While the totality of the voyage was too long a duration to qualify for the Voyager’s Award, the judges extracted a portion which fell within the two year limit specified within the rules. Even so, this was an epic cruise. As the judges were to see from a small sample of the 40,000 or so images, it was clear that the owner, along with his family and friends, encountered incredible experiences everywhere they went, even in the rather more adventurous ‘pirate zones’, for which they were well prepared. This was a notable voyage of exactly the type for which expedition yachts were designed, and the judges considered it most worthy of a Neptune.

Legacy Award

The Legacy Award was presented to Sir Donald Gosling who, with over 60 years in superyachting – and counting – is the archetypal yacht owner. His love affair with the sea began at a young age and enrolling in the Royal Navy was a logical route for his career to take. In 1953 he acquired his first yacht which was followed by an array of pre-owned and custom yachts throughout the years. In 1993, Sir Donald Gosling’s current yacht, Leander G (named after HMS Leander – Sir Donald’s Royal Navy posting), was launched and she has been a much-loved staple of the superyacht scene ever since, welcoming both charter guests and Royalty on a regular basis.

Dunya motor yacht AXIOMA (ex Red Square) shortlisted for World Superyacht Award 2014

February 04, 2014

Dunya Yachts is delighted to announce that motor yacht Axioma (ex Red Square) has been shortlisted for the World Superyacht Award 2014 in the ‘Displacement Motoryacht 1,300 – 1,999GT’ category. Following her huge success at the Monaco Yacht Show 2013, the impressive 72,5m displacement superyacht Axioma joins the ranks of the finest luxury yachts handed over in 2013 to be considered for one of the prominent Neptune Awards.

Luxury yacht Axioma is the debut launch for Tuzla-based Dunya Yachts and the remarkable result of a truly global collaboration, with exterior styling from Sterling Scott and interior design from the late Alberto Pinto. Sedat Ergün, President of Dunya Yachts, highlights the perfectionist attitude to creating the first build from the yard, and the importance of working with the best suppliers and craftsmen in the business, as key to her appeal.

“We are thrilled with the impact that M/Y Axioma has made, and feel that she represents the quality and beauty that is expected from the best superyacht professionals in the world,” said Ergün. “We worked with some of the most experienced brains and craftsmen in the business to create a world-class vessel that will continue to be a showcase of what the Dunya Yachts brand can achieve. M/Y Axioma is the standard-bearer for our pedigree.”

When it came to mega yacht Axioma’s design, the team chose to spotlight bold style as well as practicality. The vessel’s exterior provides guests with a wide choice of both private and convivial spaces across four decks. Two generous pools, expansive lounging space and dining areas aft are complemented by secluded lounging and dining area on the bridge deck and a private terrace forward of the master cabin.

With a design brief of ‘beach house style’, the celebrated late designer Alberto Pinto chose a modern yet comfortable combination of natural woods and sumptuous soft furnishings. As his last superyacht project, Axioma yacht is testament to Pinto’s outstanding talents and will surely have a strong impact on the jury of World Superyacht Award judges.

Dunya Yachts’ daring debut, which was completed on spec by the yard and sold during the Monaco Yacht Show, features many revolutionary shifts for the general layout of a vessel of this size. These were made possible by the painstaking attention to detail from the yard’s management team and Ergün himself. Most striking is the main salon’s double-deck gallery, providing a sense of vast space and light usually reserved for large land-based residences.

For practical purposes, Dunya Yachts brought the gym, spa and steam room up from the lower decks to provide a more inviting environment for guests, and moved the movie theatre to the lower deck. All guest suites have been brought up to the main deck, with expansive windows to showcase the stunning views of the water. Superyacht Axioma  sleeps 12 guests in six suites, including a full beam master suite with panoramic
views forward.

The World Superyacht Awards finalists, chosen by the Boat International Media expert teams, will now be considered by a jury of 21 judges including 19 superyacht owners. The awards ceremony to announce the winners will take place at a spectacular gala on 3 May at Amsterdam’s Het Scheepvaartmuseum, the National Maritime Museum, in Holland. The event, now in its ninth year, is attended by superyacht owners and the leading names of the superyacht industry.

This award nomination announcement is not the first for Axioma superyacht. She has been named as a finalist for ShowBoats International’s Golden Neptune Awards, the winners of which will be announced at a gala hosted atthe Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Austria on 24 February.

“Considering the superb vessels launched by world renowned builders in 2013, we are honoured to be included as a finalist, particularly as M/Y Axioma is our first launch,” added Ergün. “Whatever the results in May, we are proud to have her representing us on the world’s oceans”.

December 05, 2013

Superyacht Axioma was designed with exceptional attention to detail in order to launch shipyard Dunya Yachts and Sterling Scott. Dunya Yachts ensured that the finish of the yacht was perfected so that the exterior and interior designers influences were brought to full fruition. Together new comers Dunya and Sterling Scott teamed up with the now late Alberto Pinto. This unity made the yacht what is now known in history, to be the yacht that surprised and far exceeded everyone’s expectations for the future years to come.

Along with the long, flowing lines, each deck and brow is angled and chiselled like a beautifully crafted diamond cut for a glamorous women. Axiome superyacht is a yacht with an emphasis on lifestyle, boasting toys throughout the full beam garage that has massive shell doors opening both port and starboard. Other highlights include a large private gym with spa facilities, an outdoor bar and an exquisite cinema room. On the exterior decks there is a large sun deck on top deck, a spa pool deck a pool deck, a closed private owner’s deck and a generous fold out pool deck. The owner’s and guest’s cabins and en-suites are decorated superbly, highlighted with the massive unblocked windows and a skylight in the owner’s suite. The VIP cabin is a masterpiece, on this yacht with her vast windows and luxurious layout.

Some might say this design works so well because, when there is a team of people drawn together for one reason and one passion and there is much contemplation, study and assessment on one market, then all these factors unify when a design or a designer is selected for the privilege of designing a yacht of this significance. All involved understand and respect the facts and appreciate being a part of it.
