RF YACHTS present motor yacht PROXIMA design at the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show

September 23, 2011

Written by Eva Belanyiova

At the 2011 Monaco Yacht Show ‘RF YACHTS’ designer Roland Friedberger presented his first motor yacht design under his own label – the motor yacht PROXIMA. Available in two versions, superyacht Proxima was created by the designer in a 50m as well as in a 57m interpretation. Previous works of Roland Friedberger include the 90m motor yacht Conqueror for Messerschmitt Yachts, which was presented by Nobiskrug at the 2010 MYS and the ‘Bulwark’ yacht series for MTT (Messerschmitt Yachts) in 2009.

Designer Roland Friedberger about Proxima superyacht:

„To make a step into the future means to think about the human´s urge to explore the galaxy. This expression of form has now been transcribed into the modern expression of surface. Proxima shows clear lines and soft elegant transitions. The accents are masculine and sporty.“

The 50m version of the Proxima superyacht:

Long arch form, straight front, big panorama windows and the curved axe bow – tension and elegance are developing their own character.

The Proxima superyacht design combines soft lines and elements in order to get a timeless modern and striking yacht design. The distinctive panorama windows (can be darkened electrically) provide an incredibly generous sense of space, a connection of the living space and the ambience of the ocean.

The concept – Proxima Yacht:

In every area exists an aspiration to think about, why things are how they are and if one could not design this differently. The general arrangement of the motor yacht Proxima placed the owner´s area in the front area and made it very generously, with outsized panorama windows. The crew area and the gallery as well as the pilot house are equipped with their own staircases and are designed in a way, that it makes the service easier. It also ensures that the owner and the guests alike have their individual privacy needs met.

The high hull not only offers security but can also be used as a big storage space at the lowest level, when on long journeys. The streamlined form of the hull not only increases the speed, but also improves the efficiency of the consumption at cruising speed. Even in the interior construction the design will be based on saving as much weight as possible.

Fly bridge deck:

Approximately 90 sqm generosity for a pool, lounge, bar, large space for a sun pad and (optional) a pilot chair.

The bar with service and food lift provides between the chrome pillars space for a 2m wide screen. Big transparent LED areas are individually adjustable in colors and reflect extensively different lighting moods.

1st Singapore Yacht Show opens this weekend – Asia’s first superyacht show

April 06, 2011

Written by Chelsea Smith

A brand new superyacht exhibition opens its doors this Friday, 8 April 2011 at ONE°15 Marina Club in Sentosa Cove. The widely-anticipated first edition of the Singapore Yacht Show will present a first-class line-up of sailing and motor superyachts, as well as displays from some of the leaders of the international yachting industry, despite being launched only four months ago.

This excellent turn-out for a first-time show underlines the appetite of South East Asia’s new super-wealthy to discover the luxury marine lifestyle long-enjoyed by their counterparts in the West, and the enthusiasm of the international builders, brokers and suppliers to support an exciting new market. The Singapore Yacht Show is intended to be a truly regional event, targeted at specially invited business leaders, VIPs, celebrities and yachting enthusiasts from around the whole of South East Asia.

The three-day show welcomed important international industry exhibitors such as San LorenzoPalmer Johnson, MTU, Jade Yachts, Mega Marine, ICON Yachts, AzimutGulf Craft  and Prout International. A home grown success story is embodied in the construction of the Mega 128, the first superyacht to be built in Singapore in close to two decades, by Singapore-owned shipyard Megaway Engineering & Trading,

The 12-strong superyacht display features the 187ft Aegean sailing yacht Montigne, 131ft traditionally built Phinisi sailing yacht EL ALEPH, the 108ft Broward Motor yacht Nymphaea, the 116ft Azimut Hye Seas II and the 100ft  Schooner Raja Laut, amongst others.

Seasoned boating enthusiasts can expect concept yachts to be unveiled at the show. The 138 ft Prout International trimaran and the Jade 95 Explorer from Jade Yachts are among those anticipated to elicit a strong interest from visitors. Also expected to make a splash is the 141 ft superyacht jointly constructed by Mega Marina and ICON Yachts.

Industry professionals new to the region can look forward in gaining important insights from local experts, as they share knowledge and discuss current issues for the regional superyacht industry at the Asia Superyacht Conference from 7 to 8 April, held in conjunction with the Singapore Yacht Show at the ONE°15 Marina Club. Speakers at this two-day conference will tackle issues including piracy risks, marina developments, service facility upgrading, chartering opportunities and market growth potential in Asia.

“The response to the first edition of the Singapore Yacht Show has been very encouraging,” said Andy Treadwell, Managing Director of Informa Yacht Group, organisers of the Singapore Yacht Show. “We are delighted to extend a very warm welcome to all the exhibitors, sponsors and guests and visitors who are coming to support our newest Yacht Show, and hope that this event will herald the start of a more dynamic and vibrant superyacht industry in Asia. We look forward to an exciting next few years!”

Sponsors are also fervently anticipating the development of the superyacht sector in the region. David Lim, CEO of Julius Baer, a leading Swiss private banking group and one of the show’s major sponsors, believes the Singapore Yacht Show is a good opportunity to reach out to the bank’s many existing clients in the region, and the huge number of potential customers seeking expert wealth management.

“The Singapore Yacht Show presents a unique opportunity to reach the growing pool of high net worth individuals in Asia. This will be a perfect platform for Julius Baer to extend corporate hospitality to our clients, and at the same time allow us valuable networking opportunities and build brand visibility for the exclusive private banking services we offer,” Lim said.

The Singapore Yacht Show is supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, as well as the Superyacht Singapore Association, with ONE°15 Marina Club as the official venue partner. BMW Group Asia is on board as the show’s official car, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Singapore are sponsors of the gala dinner, and Capella is the Premium Hotel partner.

The Show takes place from 8-10 April 2011 at ONE°15 Marina Club, opening daily from 3.00pm to 8.00pm on Friday 8 April, and 3.00pm to 10.00pm on Saturday and Sunday, 9 and 10 April.
