Hainan Rendez-Vous 2013 Hosted Leading Brands of Yachts, Jets and Supercars

April 11, 2013

Last week saw the prestigious Hainan Rendez-Vous continue to support the growth of China’s nascent markets for yachts as well as business jets as the 2013 edition of the event achieved significant on-site transactions, comprising the sales of twenty-nine yachts and three business jets.

Hainan Rendevous

With over 13,000 VIP guests from all around China among the 23,000+ people who attended, the show also gave another lift to the local Sanya economy, while further elevating the city’s image as an emerging hub for the international yachting community.

“The economic impact of the sale of a yacht or business jet goes far beyond the manufacture of the craft,” said show founder Delphine Lignieres. “Large ships and planes require crews of trained people to maintain and operate, as well as the construction of essential infrastructure. The sale of yachts and jets at Hainan Rendez-Vous is helping to drive the development of all these associated industries in China, which creates many jobs. As a yachting hub, Sanya definitely benefits.”

Hainan Rendez-Vous this year reached a new level of prestige in terms of quality of exhibitors and partners. A ten-person delegation from the Monaco Yacht Club arrived to promote the Principality as the world’s capital of yachting. The French government again sent a strong delegation representing some of the country’s most exclusive lifestyle brands, housing them in a special pavilion with an 8-metre replica of the Eiffel tower located right in the centre.

The return of all the world’s leading makers of business jets was a further signal of the show’s solid international reputation. Aviation brands exhibited their aircraft at Sanya Phoenix International Airport, where a new VIP terminal enhanced the show experience for guests.

Top shipyards from Europe and America likewise returned with an amazing fleet of 130 vessels, including seven boats between 30 and 50 meters long. The more than two hundred companies housed in exhibition booths at the main show fairgrounds included leading superyacht and megayacht builders like Luerssen, Oceanco, Blohm+Voss, Royal Huisman, Feadship and Abeking & Rasmussen.

Also fabulous at Hainan Rendez-Vous 2013 was the lineup of supercar brands, which included McLaren exhibiting its new model, the McLaren P1, for its launch in Asia. The elite brand celebrated the occasion with a glamorous gala dinner for over 200 highly targeted guests, followed by an after party aboard the largest yacht at the show, the Sapphire.

McLaren’s supercars were joined at the exhibition by the stylish vehicles of Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls Royce and Lamborghini, forming a collection that truly showcased the genius of automobile design at its very best.

As in past Rendev-Vous editions, a rich program of cultural and networking events ran in tandem with the yacht, jet and lifestyle shows. Events included a fascinating art exhibition led by Art Labor Gallery that was titled “Jardin d’ Art” (Garden of Art), with contemporary works exploring the theme of the garden. Newly added events this year included the inaugural Ballantine’s Sanya Golf Team Trophy, a golf tournament for 36 teams of 4 players each, and a special lunch for CEOs from the boat and jet industries that was sponsored by Pernod Ricard.

Chopard, the renowned Swiss watch and jewellery maker whose pieces regularly beautify celebrities at the Cannes Film Festival and similar events in the west, demonstrated its love for China by exhibiting an exceedingly rare 31.32-carat chameleon diamond ring at the show. Chopard brought Hainan Rendez-Vous 2013 to a close on an elegant note, hosting a gala dinner with performances by renowned Hong Kong actress and singer/songwriter Karen Mok, along with a show of stunning models wearing the iconic brand’s sparkling gems and timepieces.

Nauta Yachts on the largest mega yacht in the world: the 180m AZZAM YACHT

April 10, 2013

Nauta Yachts has issued a press release talking about the recently launched 180m AZZAM yacht – the largest superyacht in the world. Mega Yacht Azzam boasts exterior design by Nauta Yachts and was constructed by the prestigious German shipyard Lurssen. Her interior was created by Christophe Leoni.

180m Azzam superyacht designed by Nauta Yachts

180m Azzam superyacht designed by Nauta Yachts

“Seven years ago we began to navigate in the wide ocean of superyacht design. We were lucky to start with a commission for an 80 metre motor yacht with moderate volumes and above all the possibility to open large glass surfaces on the superstructure of each deck. We called this project Light with the double meaning of brightness and lightness. When we were then called in to participate in the design and exterior styling of AZZAM we immediately realised that this project would be one of the most demanding of our careers. The brief was strict and challenging in terms of dimensions, performance and technology. At the same time we were pleased to note that the Client’s brief was not calling for large volumes in relation to the overall length. This would give us the possibility to express our vision of balance between airiness and light on a larger scale. Our lines could stay neat and essential, one of the hallmarks of Nauta Yachts, without overflow, redundancy and massive volumes.”

“The yacht was to be able to navigate at speeds in excess of 30 knots, powered by a combination of two gas turbines and two diesel engines with a total 94,000 horse power. The highest technology to obtain the highest performance possible for a 180m hull would require, from our point of view, a rational, modern architecture composed by straight lines and balanced and proportioned volumes, outlining her advanced contents and stunning performance.”

“Ever since the first sketches, we could sense that we were on the right track. The design had strength of character and sense of purpose, yet also had timeless elegance, even while incorporating elements of visionary contemporary modern design.”

Nauta CEO Mario Pedol states: “When I saw the scale model before the general presentation to the Principal, I was 100% happy with the outcome. So was the Principal. Such recognition made me confident that we had achieved our goal.”

The Client representative assembled a world-class team, composed by Lürssen engineers, technical project managers from Burgess, the interior designer Christophe Leoni, and by ourselves here at Nauta Yachts.

AZZAM breaks new ground in terms of dimensions, performance and technology. In addition to being the largest yacht in the world with a length of 180 meters and in addition to her staggering top speed of over 30 knots, she shatters records in terms of building time: after a year of engineering, she was constructed in just three years, another milestone in yachting history.

According to Burgess CEO Jonathan Beckett the construction of this yacht – with its highly complex technical features – has been extremely demanding and challenging. “It has been a real team effort – he says – between all the professionals involved, including ourselves, the builder and the designers, and we are proud to be associated with this extraordinary and unique project as Owner’s technical consultants.”

The renowned French designer Christophe Leoni has been able to realize a sophisticated and luxurious interior in Empire style. “Though yachting is not my main area of business – he comments – I thoroughly enjoyed the cooperation with Nauta and Lürssen and I am confident that the final yacht is everything and more that the Owner expects.”

While waiting for mega yacht Azzam’s final delivery, we can state that all our efforts were concentrated to achieve a design defined by a strong character, but dressed by a timeless elegance. We believe Azzam will be able to represent a milestone in the superyacht fleet for decades.

His brief was to build a large luxury yacht with an innovative and timeless design that would be able to travel at high speed in warm and shallow waters, whilst providing luxurious and sophisticated accommodation to its guests.

Under the personal guidance of Eng. Mubarak Saad al Ahbabi, the technical engineering was developed by Lürssen, the exterior design by Nauta Yachts and the interior design by Christophe Leoni to create what is, without doubt, the most complex and challenging yacht which has ever been built.

The yacht AZZAM is breaking new grounds in terms of dimension, performance and technology. In addition to being the largest yacht in the world with a length of 180 meters and with a top speed of over 30 knots she adds another record in terms of building time. Lürssen Managing Partner Peter Lürssen proudly said: “When she will be delivered later this year, she will have been in build for only three years following one year of engineering.”  “She truly represents another milestone in not only our history but yachting history as well” he adds.

Lürssen Group to purchase the Peene shipyard

December 19, 2012

The respected German luxury yacht builder, Lürssen Group, has been selected as the buyer of the Peene shipyard in Wolgast, as decided by the insolvency administrator, Berthold Brinkmann, in a meeting of the creditor committee. This decision is subject to approval by the creditors holding liens on the property.

The purchase agreement has already been concluded. As of May 1, 2013, the Lürssen Group will acquire the compact shipyard with its repair and new construction area. The purchase is also subject to approval by the Federal Cartel Office. The purchase price is less than 20 million euros.

Berthold Brinkmann: “Lürssen offered the best purchase price. Aspects particularly appreciated were the skill of the workforce and the know-how accumulated by the company, a special shipyard for naval and government agency vessels. The many years of successful cooperation, for instance when building the F125 frigate, and the trust gained from that also played a role in terms of the Lürssen Group’s decision to buy the company.”

The Lürssen Group has pledged to make offers for permanent employment to 285 people, as well as offers for 75 additional positions for employment limited to 24 months. In addition, all 65 trainees of the Peene shipyard will be taken on and their training will be continued.

The Lürssen Group is purchasing the buildings for the compact and repair shipyard but not the adjacent properties to the north and south, which do not belong to the main shipyard. They will be sold separately by the administrator.

Several interested parties from Germany and abroad are in talks with the administrator, Berthold Brinkmann, concerning the Volkswerft Stralsund shipyard.

Negotiations between the administrator and the DFDS shipping company are in the final stages regarding the anticipated order for two RORO special vessels. Today, the creditor committee declared itself in favor of the administrator’s recommendation that the two special vessels be built at the Volkswerft. Also, at the request of DFDS, the project will be supported by Wolfgang Stammer, the former managing director of Volkswerft Stralsund GmbH whom Berthold Brinkmann recruited to his team in September 2012 as senior advisor.

In the meantime, the operating company “Stralsunder Schiffbaugesellschaft mbH” was founded with its headquarters at An der Werft 5 in Stralsund. The partner is IMG Ingenieurtechnik & Maschinenbau GmbH (Rostock), and the managing directors are Reinhart Kny and Stefan Säuberlich. The Stralsunder Schiffbaugesellschaft will operate on behalf of the administrator within a contract for services framework.

The employees from the transfer company will be hired for a limited time. The managing directors are negotiating a tariff for the employees with the union IG Metall. As soon as the contract with DFDS is completed and production at the Volkswerft Stalsund shipyard is up and running again, the operating company will become active on behalf of the administrator with approximately 300 shipbuilders.
