Sunreef Yachts Announces 4 Yachts on Display and 2 World Premieres at Cannes Boat Show

July 05, 2012

As every year, Sunreef Yachts will exhibit its highly-anticipated new luxury vessels during the prominent Cannes Boat Show, held in September 2012. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the two new Premiere Models will be on display: the 60 Sunreef Power yacht EWHALA as well as the Sunreef 82 Double Deck superyacht HOUBARA. Moreover, two spectacular models: the 2012 70 Sunreef Power yacht SKYLARK and the 2011 Sunreef 70 Sailing charter yacht ANINI will be also showcased, which means 4 luxury vessels all together. That is the biggest yacht display for Sunreef Yachts in its history.

60 Sunreef Power yacht EWHALA

60 Sunreef Power yacht EWHALA

60 Sunreef Power – EWHALA

The 60 Sunreef Power yacht EWHALA was made in response to the growing demand for compact yet highly impressive powerboat. This vessel has all the features of the popular 70 Sunreef Power, except its 27.8 ft / 8.5 m beam that makes it more convenient for crowded marinas, especially in the Mediterranean. It is also an interesting alternative for traditional motoryachts with much lower fuel consumption, long range, superb living space with the best comfort and intimacy for the owner and his guests, customized interior design and stability.

Due to be launched at the end of July, the luxury yacht EWHALA has been commissioned by a European owner, and is laid out in a semi-owner version with two double cabins in the forward section, two double cabins in the starboard hull, and one double, one bunk-bed cabin (for the crew) in the port hull. The interior of the main deck features the galley and a dining area, while a mezzanine floor located in the midship comprises internal helm station and lounge, providing access to the forward guest cabins.

The spacious sun deck, Sunreef’s speciality and trademark, accessible from the cockpit, houses external helm station, wet bar with barbecue, dining area and a huge sun pad, ideal for outdoor lounging in the sun. The innovative JMS boat control system by ZF Marine Electronics Group, allowing the boat to be easily maneuvered with a joystick, has been installed aboard EWHALA yacht. The interior design is modern and minimalist, based on wenge and oak contrast, finished with gray and white upholstery and brushed stainless steel details.

82 Sunreef Double Deck superyacht HOUBARA

82 Sunreef Double Deck superyacht HOUBARA

82 Sunreef Double Deck – HOUBARA

Scheduled for launch at the end of July, the Sunreef 82 DD superyacht HOUBARA is the second double decker catamaran after charter yacht IPHARRA. In this double deck concept there is one spacious owner cabin in the front, and a large and bright salon with an internal helm station with sea views. That is why this model is a perfect alternative to a traditional motoryacht which consumes tremendous amounts of fuel.

The Double Deck catamarans have a chance to become superyachts of the future with their comfort on board and low fuel consumption resulting from its low draft and the possibility of cruising on sails in keeping with the maximum stability at all times. The private HOUBARA yacht accommodates up to 7 guests in one beam-wide owner suite, one VIP queen cabin and one guest twin cabin convertible to a double cabin with an additional Pullman bed, attended by two crew to assist the owner, a sailor himself. An innovative element aboard the Sunreef 82 DD yacht HOUBARA is the smart mezzanine floor housing a coffee table within a lounge area located on the starboard side of the main deck within the dining area.

There is also a purpose-built storage area for painting equipment, as the owners enjoy this activity while sailing. The owner suite, arranged over two floors, is set to occupy the entire forward section of the yacht with a master cabin, Spa Pool and vanity on the main deck, and wardrobe and floor-to-ceiling storage and bathroom located below decks in port and starboard hulls respectively. Interior design has been customised following the owners’ suggestions, and combines light and natural colours and materials finished in a classic style.

70 Sunreef Power – SKYLARK

Scheduled for launch in August 2012, SKYLARK yacht is the hull nr 8 of the very successful yacht model, the 70 Sunreef Power, introduced in 2008. The vessel is laid out in the owner version with a beam-wide owner suite in the forward section and four double cabins in the hulls: one VIP and two double for the guests and one double for the crew. Beautiful interior design takes its inspiration from the superyacht Sunreef 114 charter yacht CHE and mixes caramel bamboo wood with pearl gray upholstery, aquamarine table tops and decorative elements such as cushions and wall panels. General ambience is thus very relaxing and enjoyable.

Sunreef 70 yacht ANINI

Sunreef 70 yacht ANINI

Sunreef 70 – ANINI

Launched in November 2011, charter yacht ANINI is the 7th unit of the Sunreef 70 Sailing successfully completed by the Sunreef Yachts shipyard. Sold to an American client for private use with some chartering activity, luxury yacht ANINI will spend the coming winter in southern Portugal before starting her Summer 2012 cruise in the Mediterranean, the sea that the owner wishes to explore as much as possible.

ANINI yacht is arranged in the owner layout version with the master suite and one guest cabin in the portside hull and two guest (one with bunk beds) and one crew cabin in the starboard hull. The master suite includes a double bed with night tables, an extendable sofa, work desk, TV and DVD, and plenty of storage for long cruises.

ANINI’s interior design shows clear references to the Sunreef 114 charter yacht CHE with the choice of caramel bamboo wood applied to all wooden furniture, door and window frames, and decorative ceiling panels. Turquoise sofas and armchairs with wall and ceiling panels complete the bamboo finish in a very natural way, creating a relaxed, marine ambience inside.

Cerri Shipyard launches motor yacht PACHAMAMA – the new Cerri 86 Flyingsport Superyacht

July 05, 2012

June 18th in Marina di Carrara saw the technical launch of the 86’ motor yacht PACHAMAMA, built by the Cerri shipyard, currently owned by the Gavio Group. Mixing up the comfort of flying-bridge boats with the high speed as well as sporty character of large open yachts, the Pachamama superyacht is the 12th vessel in the successful Cerri 86 Flyingsport series, conceived by Carlo Cerri.

The new Cerri 86 Pachamama yacht’s internal layout features two separate salons on two different levels, offering an impressive view over the aft cockpit. Besides the two salons, there are four ensuite cabins for the owner and guests, two ensuite cabins for the crew, the galley and the steering station.

Outside, in the aft cockpit, a U-shaped sofa bounds the large sunbathing area and offers a comfortable seating solution at the dining table. The outdoor steering station is located on the flybridge, also featuring comfortable sunbathing cushions. At the bow, two sidewalks lead to a large sunbathing area and a U-shaped sofa ensuring total comfort while cruising and the utmost privacy even when moored.

The Cerri 86 Flyingsport yacht Pachamama also stands out for her excellent performances: this craft can indeed boast a cruising speed of over 30 knots and a maximum speed of 40 knots thanks to the unique hydrodynamic features of her hull, the two 1950 HP MU engines, and the ZF Searex surface drives.

Hull number 13 of the Cerri 86 and hull number 2 of the Cerri 102 are currently under construction at the Marina di Carrara boatyard.

The Pachamama superyacht will be on display at the 2012 Cannes Boat Show in the stand of the Rodriguez Group, which has signed an exclusive worldwide sales and marketing agreement with Cerri Cantieri Navali.

Newly launched Vicem 107 superyacht MONI to premiere at Cannes Boat Show 2012

July 03, 2012

The prestigious Turkish shipyard Vicem Yachts has successfully launched its new Vicem 107 motor yacht Moni. The new flagship of semi-displacement Cruiser line designed for long distance cruising, all-mahagony 32.5m Moni superyacht is a splendid Classic Cruiser, boasting extremely rich internal volumes as well as external entertainment areas.

Vicem 107 luxury yacht Moni remains faithful to the signature Cruiser line design. On the inside though, she breaks away from the traditional Vicem mahogany interiors. The boat will head into the 2012 European show season with a world debut at CANNES BOAT SHOW.

The new Vicem superyacht Moni epitomizes the three hallmarks of every Vicem yacht: exuding a classic look of timeless design, exemplifying the Vicem ideals for unmatched craftsmanship with a commitment to total customization, and the cold-molded method of construction. But this timeless classic design 32,50m Vicem has undergone a sophisticated makeover with a number of new refinements, thanks to Vicem’s in-house design team.

Superyacht Moni - side view

Antonio Caviglia – Vicem Yacht European Sales Director from the new base in Porto Mirabello, La Spezia refers: “the Vintage Cruiser 107 will be an outstanding boat to entertain family and friends, with interior and exterior spaces worthy of a 115footer, including an amazingly large midship, full-beam master cabin, and two extremely spacious VIPs. The giant 70 square meters flybridge is worthy of a +40 metres superyacht.”

“Given all of these attributes, including a very comfortable crew area, as well as Rina Certification, Y Pleasure Class, it will also have great charter appeal. Those on board will enjoy the utmost luxury with a quiet and smooth ride afforded only by a cold molded mahogany hull which promise only to enhance the overall exceptional experience.”

Caviglia again “Her European owner wanted a fresh, modern but warm interior, and since one of our core Vicem values is the ability to fully customize the interiors, we were able to fully meet his desires. The result is simply spectacular – our master craftsmen have interpreted “modern” by blending woods, leathers, fabrics and stones into welcoming and harmonious interiors with a fit and finish worthy of the Vicem tradition.”

“The Vicem 107 Cruiser is an ideal yacht for an owner with a large family or a heck of a lot of friends – says Dave Mallach, Vicem Yachts Sales Director. “A yacht of this size can accommodate 3 couples with full VIP accommodations and an additional 4 guests in two separate staterooms (total of 10 guests), providing the discerning yachtsmen an experience that cannot be duplicated on a fiberglass vessel. With a draft of only 6’4” (1.90m), its cruising ability in the Caribbean, as well as in the Mediterranean, will provide an experience only our Flagship Vintage model can bestow on those aboard. We are very proud. It is a true testament to Vicem’s capabilities.”

Vicem 107 yacht Moni Sundeck

Vicem 107 yacht Moni Sundeck

A mighty and powerful looking yacht with a “double crème shade” of unrivaled prestige like its “older sister”, the 78 Cruiser – one of the 2010 Vicem successes. The Yard’s strengths are again utilized in this boat: it’s the highly specialized workforce, its obsession with wood and stainless steel craftsmanship that comes close to perfection, the engineering resources necessary for the development of its V type hard chine semi-displacement hull.

And last but not least the Moni superyacht maintains the Yard’s DNA in custom or semi-custom production with a quality to price ratio that can be found only in Turkey.

The introduced version comes with 5 cabins for 10 guests, an “over sized” Ushape Gaggenau kitchen, king size bed in the full-beam master cabin and in the Vip cabin. Two further guest cabins propose a queen-size and a twin-bed double solution. The crew area is another sign of distinctiveness: 3 cabins (2 singles and one double+pullman) with private toilets, double access and laundry and private area (total of 5 crew on board).

Moni superyacht Interior

Moni superyacht Interior

The Vicem 107 yacht Moni’s contemporary twists are complemented by an updated exterior, and shows all its cruising character: a very high bow with a large and low cockpit to face rough seas for a pleasant and comfortable cruise in any weather. All on-board detail has been handcrafted to the highest standard and expertise: mahogany toe-rail and chromed brass or stainless steel hardware are just an example.

Power arrangements are 2 x CAT C32 1 ,550HP Marine diesel engines, which allow the 107 Moni yacht semi-displacement hull to reach cruising and maximum speeds of 1 7 and 21 knots, respectively. The fuel tanks have a capacity of 3,831 gal. 14,500 lt. while the water and holding tanks are 512 gal. – 1,940 lt. and 1,025 gal. – 3,800 lt., respectively and a deadrise angle on transom is 17 degree. The engine room of the Cruiser 107 is built in keeping with the tradition of Vicem of designing and executing engine rooms that are extremely well organized, well appointed and well finished so as to maximize functionality, accessibility and reliability.

This tradition is a result of Vicem’s 20 years experience in the American market, where engine rooms are more often scrutinized by owners and captains to confirm the build quality of the rest of the boat. Regarding the engines themselves, Vicem chose in this particular case robust twin Caterpillar C32 in order to provide to the Owner endless hours of reliable cruising with easy maintenance requirements.

The cold molded method
The building technique used to create the new 107 is the same used for all Vicem Vintage Line (classic/flybridge 52’ to 75’ – cruiser 78, 92, 107): the cold molded process. A millenary, unique construction technique which embodies all the construction methods of the Turkish historical marine tradition; a modern procedure different from traditional boat building.

Based on engineered wood construction, cold-molding uses laminated mahogany (coming from managed forests) and a specific formulated epoxy resin to create the hull, decks and principal superstructures. This results in a stronger and quieter vessel with a smoother ride, with natural insulation from humidity and noise.

Motor Yacht Pershing 82 to premiere at Cannes Boat Show

June 29, 2012

The technical launch and the presentation of the new Pershing 82 superyacht is eagerly awaited, with the launch due to take place at the end of July. The motor yacht Pershing 82, designed by Pershing, a brand of Ferretti Group, world’s top manufacturers of high performance open motor yachts ranging from 15 to 35 metres, will be displayed at the popular Autumn boat shows. Pershing 82 will debut at the Cannes Boat Show, after completing her journey to French Riviera.

The shipyard of Mondolfo is thus ready to host the fundamental towing tank tests for the latest Pershing yacht, 24.97 metres in length, 5.50 in width and designed once again by the yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni in close collaboration with AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology – the Ferretti Group’s naval research and design centre) and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.

The superstructure of the new Pershing 82 yacht, which is already assembled and varnished with a special silver colour (like the hull), and the furnishings which are almost complete, display the strong sporty character of this model, immediately recognizable from its external profile which is more appealing than that of the Pershing 80’, its predecessor.

Luxury superyacht Pershing 82

The profile of the sun-deck is also taking shape, which can easily be accessed from an automated hatch and a carbon steel staircase, created by AYT in close collaboration with Besenzoni. Once inserted, the staircase is decentralized and drops automatically into the cockpit by electro-hydraulic control and automatically disappears upwards when closed, freeing the space in the cockpit.

All the other stylistic features that have distinguished the Pershing models, contributing to its worldwide success, remain the same on the new motor yacht Pershing 82: the large windows on the walls, the large retractable door that divides the cockpit from the saloon with electro-hydraulic control and the special system of fiberglass vacuum molding.

The first hull of the new Pershing 82′ yacht has 4 comfortable guest cabins (the master suite amidships, a VIP cabin forward and two cabins with twin beds at the bow of the master suite) for the standard layout, and 2 guest cabins (one for the captain and one for the sailors) for the optional version, with laundry room and bathroom.

Below deck, space is typically divided for a mega yacht, for example the galley is separate from the saloon and it communicates with the crew area to allow greater privacy for the guests and the ship owner. The galley, which is L-shaped and is completely separate from the sleeping area, ensures comfort and a good quality of life on board.

The sleeping area is a model of comfort and design. In the master suite, amidships, we find the easily recognizable wide open-view windows, which marked the aesthetic course of the new Pershing range. The sinuous shape of the window permits a generous amount of light to enter throwing  a pleasant play of light onto the Poltrona Frau leather furnishings.

Pershing 82 superyacht - VIP cabin

The VIP cabin, at the bow, with an en-suite, features an elegant central bed and two big lateral wardrobes, while the two guest cabins have a more traditional setting with two twin beds. All the guest cabins aboard luxury yacht Pershing 82 have a carpet.

The below deck lighting system is also included. It consists of embedded LED lights, distributed along the ducts on the concealed molding, providing indirect lighting and guaranteeing a welcoming atmosphere.

Besides the innovative solutions designed for the external structure and for the design below deck, the new Pershing 82′ was developed to ensure maximum performance at sea: two powerful coupled MTU 16 V M93 of 2435 mhp (1792 kW) with Searex SR140S propulsion system together with Rolla surface piercing propellers that guarantee a maximum speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots and high levels of comfort, in addition to the autonomy of more than 300 nautical miles. The propulsion system is run by AUTOTRIM, an exclusive functionality that optimizes the performance and the consumption of the boat at any speed and with any load and is completely automatic.

Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing, states: “We are close to the launch of this new model, a boat which perfectly fits the new aesthetic course of the brand and which we believe can satisfy the demands of many ship owners who require excellent performance at sea together with the unmistakable Pershing design. The Pershing 82’ will be the jewel in the crown which will represent us at the Autumn boat shows”.

Total flexibility of space and innovative technology are the guidelines of our stylistic choices for this new boat in which the most prestigious brands are represented and which reaffirm the high sporty performances which are typical of every Pershing yacht.

A New Visual Identity

The custom-designed wooden furniture has now been installed within the hulls of the Sunreef 82 Double Deck catamaran yacht. The saloon is being fitted with the beautiful Bubinga finish, and the owner cabin located in the lower deck is almost ready, featuring a jardinière and a Spa Pool. The flybridge will soon be infused and added to the superstructure. Rudder blades and keels will be added to the hulls next week.

The production of the 60 Sunreef Power yacht is also advancing well. Most of the furniture is now in place, and both engine rooms are finished and fitted with engines, generators, and water makers. The innovative JMS boat control system by ZF Marine Electronics Group, allowing the motor yacht 60 Sunreef Power to be easily manoeuvred with a joystick, has been installed. It is a very rare feature on large catamaran yachts, and Sunreef is delighted to apply this system on its new power model. Most of the electrical systems have been installed. The flybridge mould is currently being cut on the CNC machine by in-house engineers. It will be infused in June and assembled with the superstructure immediately afterwards.
