High-quality marble has become an essential part of opulent en-suite bathrooms, exquisite flooring, stunning hard tops for bars and numerous other design features that can be found not only inside luxury homes, but also aboard luxury superyachts. Yacht builders and owners carefully choose their trusted suppliers, resulting in a tight collaboration in order to offer the best and the most beautiful product to their clients. One such collaboration involves the Monaco-based superyacht builder Dynamiq and the Sicilian marble suppliers and outfitters, Magma Srl.
Dynamiq aim to build the most efficient and versatile vessels available today in the 30-50m (98-164ft), and to meet and exceed the quality expectations of their clients they contract Magma Srl, which are the same marble suppliers and outfitters used by the leading 100m+ (328ft) superyacht builders of Northern Europe.
Magma Srl is based in Licata, Sicily and was founded by the third generation of a family of marble craftsmen, brothers Mario and Angelo Bellomo, in 1998. The company has secured its reputation within the yachting industry and has worked with a number of prestigious designers and shipyards including Sam Sorgiovanni, Terence Disdale, Andrew Winch, Nuvolari & Lenard, Alberto Pinto, Kusch Yachts, Oceanco, Amels and Lurssen.
When creating the interiors for Dynamiq luxury yacht JETSETTER, designers Bannenberg & Rowell needed Calacatta Oro and Bianco Cristallino marble to complement the variety of natural wood used along the walls and in the furnishings. The GTT 115 meanwhile required ample quantities of a marble that had a reputation of being difficult to work with: Sahara Noir marble from Morocco. The finished results from Magma Srl are a testament to their knowledge and experience with handling this precious material, each polished to a fine sheen to reveal their own unique beauty.
“The superyacht industry has changed dramatically since we first started out some 20 years ago,” said Mario Bellomo. “As the size of the yachts has increased, so too have the expectations of owners. On a 120m (394ft) megayacht currently in build in Germany, for instance, there are around 40 different types on marble on board.”
“Dynamiq insisted on only the best quality stone and finishing,” Mario continued. “To achieve that, you have to be able to combine the latest CNC machinery with highly skilled craftsmanship. We’re proud that we managed to achieve such a perfect result making these innovative yachts also very exclusive.”
Dynamiq will be attending the Miami International Boat Show and will have an entire floor in the VIBE55 VIP lounge, where visitors can find out more about the high-quality customised design, engineering and cutting-edge technology that goes into constructing their luxury yachts.
