The aim of Italianyachtmasters is to select their members among the best Captains with strong ethics and elevate their education and skills. They like to create a new breed of Captains with a wider horizon.

The Club has recently signed a letter of intent with NAVIGO, a consortium of the major yards and industry of the Italian yachting production. With NAVIGO Italianyachtmasters are planning several ambitious projects over the next few years, enforced with the support of the industry and the best Italian University.

NAVIGO Superyacht Academy
The Italiantyachtmasters members will be provided with professional courses,( STCW 2010, ISPS, ISM, MLC, ECDIS etc.), technical courses provided by the yachting industry and university courses and stages (English, administration, management, human resources, tourism etc.).

The Superyacht Academy will where possible start to use the e-learning for their members that will not be able to attend class.

The Superyacht Academy Masters will have a wider culture and a deeper formation in many other subjects on the top of their nautical skills. We all know that nowadays a good Captain is like an AD of a medium size company running people and tools in order to guarantee a good result to the Boat owner. The University wishes to give those Captains the rights tools to excel.

At the same time the Superyacht Academy is considering vital the formation of the future generations providing cadets from the nautical institutes some periods on board of practical experience on super yachts.

Italianaychtmasters will have a corner at YARE SUPERYACHTS CAPTAIN FORUM in Viareggio next February. They are providing their members with special fares for Ecdis courses held by LITAV and a Meteorological course in Loano held by Navimeteo. They also have in schedule soon, the first Fraseryachts-Italianyachtmasters workshop in order to better learn how management, brokers and crew agency works in their offices to run the boats we command.

Italianyachtmasters is in the process of establishing contacts with the Italian Administration in order to be involved in the legislative process as consulting party regarding all the rules concerning our trade.

Very soon all Italianyachtmasters members will also join the Captains Club of Monaco Yacht Club.

The Club is open to any other group of Captains worldwide that can share their vision, ethic and dreams.

New 59m motor yacht METEORA concept designed by Claydon Reeves for Pendennis

November 06, 2013

The all-new 59-metre motor yacht Meteora concept has been designed by renowned Claydon Reeves for the prominent UK shipyard, Pendennis. Superyacht Meteora concept features in Pendennis’ 25th Anniversary book, presented at the 2013 Monaco Yacht Show.

New 59m superyacht Meteora concept by Claydon Reeves

Many modern yachts are described as being inspired by a particular car, yet all too often the design is too literal, attempting to resemble a four-wheeled object too closely. Instead Claydon Reeves have tried to distill the elements of design that signify ‘muscle car’ and apply the underlying philosophy to their Meteora yacht design.

Key features of luxury yacht Meteora concept include a single windscreen to keep the overall profile low and sleek, a long foredeck – or bonnet – and a strong shoulder line around the bridge deck glass. Claydon Reeves have treated the external hull and superstructure with a taut and sinous surfacing language, as if stretched over a muscular frame beneath. Strong concave feature lines create bold highlights and shadows. The main hull windows are subtly domed to provide further interest when the light hits them, whilst the bridge deck aft glass is reverse raked for added drama.

Beneath this poised exterior lies an intuitive interior layout, fully customizable by a new owner.

Outline Specification of superyacht Meteora concept:

LOA 59m
LWL 56.4m
Beam 11.8m
Draft 3.55m
Passengers 12
