87m Lürssen motor yacht Phoenix 2 launched

On the 8th April 2010 Lürssen launched luxury motor yacht Phoenix 2. SUPERYACHT Phoenix 2′S delivery to her owner is scheduled for summer 2010 which is ahead of the new build schedule. The original 60 metre superyacht Phoenix was launched at Lürssen in 2004. Due to her success it led to her owner developing a new project with the same team which includes Andrew Winch Designs, Moran Yacht & Ship and the Lürssen shipyard. The resulting yacht is the eagerly awaited and recently launched Phoenix II.

Superyacht PHOENIX 2

Superyacht Phoenix 2 is by no means a simple sequel to the first yacht. She has been carefully designed and constructed to ensure that the essence of the original yacht has been kept; but as her new name appropriately suggests, she has been “squared” in both her complexity and size making her a much bigger and far more beautiful yacht.

The exterior of luxury yacht Phoenix 2 was designed by Andrew Winch Designs and incorporates both elegant and streamlined lines that are complemented by more than 100 metres of polished stainless steel handrails uniquely shaped and installed. Her sundeck offers a generous swimming pool with separate Spa Pool and an exterior cinema. The new Phoenix’s sky lounge opens out to an inside/outside dining area complete with glass screens creating the ultimate dining experience.

The imaginative use of furnishings, fabrics and furniture on the Lürssen yacht Phoenix II is influenced by the New York 1930’s era, is incorporated into her unique general arrangement which has been carefully designed to provide the clients with exactly the style and practicality of the yacht they require. A beautiful full beam Deco Duplex apartment for the owner’s suite offers unrivalled and undisturbed views out to sea. A private staircase joins the two floors together whilst a private foredeck complete with Spa Pool offers exterior privacy to the client.

62m Super Sailing Yacht ATHOS a Holland Jachtbouw Schooner 2010

Holland Jachtbouw Yachts, Holland has launches the modern classic schooner sailing yacht Athos. Superyacht ATHOS is now the world’s largest privately owned two masted schooner. Measuring 62m overall and designed by Andre Hoek, the operation to bring luxury yacht Athos to water involved a dramatic journey through the Dutch countryside.

Holland Jachtbouw Sailing Yacht ATHOS at launch 2010

Too heavy to lift with a crane, the wheels of a giant trailer were carefully inserted under the cradle and the entire 400-tonne structure was carefully driven on to a pontoon. The next stage of this major logistical operation saw the barge and its precious cargo towed on a two-day journey from our yard in Zaandam (close to Amsterdam) to the northern Dutch port of Harlingen. It was here that Athos’ deep-V hull made her first contact with the water as the yacht was launched by a massive 2000-tonne lift.

The sailing yacht ATHOS was then towed on her own keel back to the HJB yard, where we are mow making a start with stepping Athos’ phenomenal rig. At 62m, the main mast is the longest built by Rondal or anyone else in Holland and, like the 15m fore boom and 23.5m main boom, is made of carbon fibre.

Holland Jachtbouw ATHOS at launch

A technical marvel in every respect, sea trials of this breathtaking superyacht will begin shortly.

At 62 metres, superyacht Athos will be the world’s largest privately owned, modern two-mast schooner when she is launched in 2010. Her deep-V hull arrived at the yard in February 2008 after being built and engineered in partnership with our sub-contractor. The structure is made of the special high modulus 5383 aluminium, making Athos the largest sailing yacht yet built in this super-strong alloy. We are building her to MCA specifications and Veritas rules.

The Yacht Owner’s privacy
Designed by our colleagues at Hoek Naval Architects, Athos has a shallow draught keel and integrated centre board. Her 11-metre beam provides ample interior volume, including a private owners’ area aft with deckhouse and cockpit. The full beam owner’s suite will feature a large bathroom between the owner’s deckhouse and bedroom, as well as a walk-in closet and a wealth of locker space. Direct access is provided to the owner’s deckhouse and owner’s cockpit on the aft deck. Privacy is assured in the deckhouse by having the wheel positioned forward of this location.

Forward of the owner’s suite will be four good sized guest suites. The main deckhouse will have a large dining area to starboard, with a lounge and stewardess area to port. The lower saloon is arranged as a large library to starboard, with a galley opposite that can be either open or closed. Cooking will be an integral part of the interior set-up as the owners also enjoy creating haute cuisine. Forward are a large crew mess, crew galley, five crew cabins, and a large separate captains-chief engineer’s office with an integrated control room.

Sailing Prowess
Sailing yacht Athos will have a 1980 m² upwind sail area on carbon spars, while a mast height of 62 metres will ensure that she can pass the Bridge of the Americas. An almost entirely pushbutton-operated rig will include furling booms on boomvangs, carbon spars and captive winches on sheets and halyards.

The twin main engines of ATHOS will drive controllable pitch propellers, while two diesel and two shaft generators provide a parallel power supply. First class maneuverability is assured thanks 150kw retractable bow-and stern thrusters. Athos will have a flyboat on the forepeak and two Vago dinghies in lockers adjacent to the deckhouse.

Superyacht ‘Addiction’ the first AMELS 177 & Yacht Bel Abri, the first Limited Editions Amels 171 for charter

Motor Yacht ADDICTION:

Built for a repeat customer, the first AMELS 177 has passed her acceptance sea trials three weeks ahead of schedule.

Early photos of the brand new AMELS 177 reveal the typically sleek lines of a classic Tim Heywood design. Photographed during her acceptance trials on the North Sea, ‘Addiction’ is the latest yacht to be ordered by a repeat client of Dutch superyacht builder AMELS.

‘Addiction’ has been completed in good time for the European yachting season. She passed her acceptance trials with flying colours, earning sign-off from the owner’s representative and Lloyds Register in just a single day. “This is a very good start to the launch of our AMELS 177 range,” commented managing director of AMELS, Rob Luijendijk. “The success of the LIMITED EDITIONS concept is already well proven with our existing models. As with our other premium semi-custom designs, we believe the AMELS 177 offers all of the benefits of personalisation that you would find with a pure custom build – but without the long design process and technical risks.”

The 177-footer is an evolution of the very successful AMELS 171, of which six yachts have now been launched. British designer Tim Heywood drew the lines of both the 171 and 177. “The additional 2 metres of the AMELS 177 serve both an aesthetic and functional purpose,” said Heywood. “The longer hull makes it possible to create an even more elegant, sleeker profile, while also creating the space for a very generous 30sqm Beach Club at the stern, a luxury area close to the water for the owner and his guests to enjoy.”

A very large transom door and integrated hydraulic crane make it possible to handle large personal watercraft such as Jet Skis with ease. There is even the option of a touch-and- go helicopter pad.

The sleek and feminine lines of the AMELS 177 have been further enhanced by the distinctive Moondust coloured hull paint, whose sophisticated tones contrast very effectively with the Oyster White superstructure and charcoal-grey accents. The interior design of Addiction has been created from a combination of two of the best design houses in the superyacht industry, Nuvolari Lenard of Italy and Axel Vervoordt of Belgium.

Sir Ian Collett of yacht consultancy Ward & McKenzie, the project managers and owner’s representative commented: “Our team was impressed by the level of organisation and professionalism of the AMELS team. ‘Addiction’ is the second successful vessel we have built with the company. This, the first 177, is a beautiful design by Tim Heywood and well constructed by AMELS. All in all, this project has been an interesting, exciting and pleasurable experience for the buyer’s team.”

After delivery, the yacht Addiction will be managed by Verpeka Yacht Brokerage, based in Monaco. Managing director Nataliya Verpeka, who moved from her native Russia to the Mediterranean 18 years ago to pursue a career in international yachting management, commented on the AMELS 177: “I was privileged to be on board Addiction for the very first acceptance sea trial of this new AMELS model, and was very impressed with the yacht’s performance. Having been closely involved with other projects, I know how rare it is for a yacht to come through its initial sea trial so smoothly.”

The AMELS yard in Vlissingen is running at full capacity with nine projects currently underway. Rob Luijendijk said: “Considering the challenging economic conditions in the global economy these past two years, we are delighted to be so busy with the planning and build of various yachts in our range, the LIMITED EDITIONS AMELS 171, 177, AMELS 199 and AMELS 212, as well as DAMEN’s 50m and 67m SEA AXE Fast Yacht Support vessels.”

AMELS Yachts is the exclusive yacht-building member of the Dutch DAMEN Shipyards Group, consisting of more than 34 shipyards and marine-related companies throughout the world. DAMEN, a family owned company, employs over 6,700 people, delivered 150 vessels in 2009 and has an annual turnover of approximately €1.4 billion.

Motor Yacht BEL ABRI:

Superyacht BEL ABRI is to be the first Amels 171 Limited Editions to be available for luxury yacht charters. The Amels 171 superyacht has already been very successful and popular amongst mega yacht owners with styling by Tim Heywood and an interior by Laura Sessa Romboli. The Limited Editions Amels 171 allows for some customization and individualisation which enables an owner to get value in terms of price and preferences.

Motor yacht Bel Abri’s owner made the most of the customisation process to increase the size of the owner suite, making a good change for charters. This meant the main-deck starboard stateroom found aboard other 171s was replaced. Outdoor entertainment and alfresco areas were also important, so BEL ABRI features a much larger Spa Pool pool on her sundeck. Also, Sessa Romboli thematically tied some of the interiors to the outdoors, such as the bridge-deck lounge which has white and blue fabrics as well as a variety of mixed woods throughout like maple, sycamore, walnut and zebrano panelling and furnishings. The South American hardwood sucupira is also featured with its chocolate tone and fairly coarse texture.

A large new modern superyacht with accommodation for 12 guests yacht BEL ABRI makes an excellent charter yacht for luxury yacht charter holidays. Please contact CharterWorld for more.

The Launch of the first Sea Axe support vessel OBERON by Amels

Exciting news for the future of the Fast Yacht Support Vessels: The first Sea Axe OBERON was launched by the Dutch shipbuilder Amels.

Oberon is a 50-metre vessel that was built to provide round-the-clock service and support for superyachts and is capable of travelling comfortably at high speeds in almost any sea state, which is possible due to the patented design of her Axe Bow.

She is the first vessel in the Fast Yacht Support market to make use of the Axe Bow, she is also capable of travelling at the top speed of 28 knots. Oberon is already in active service around the Mediterranean. Rob Luijendijk, the managing director of Amels-Holland explains the appeal of these vessels to the yacht owners with these words:

“The Sea Axe has a large capacity and is capable of carrying a helicopter, tenders, toys, fuels, consumables and waste, in addition to staff and relief crew.”

The Axe Bow is a proprietary design created jointly by Damen and Delft University of Technology under the direction of Dr ir J A (Lex) Keuning, associate professor of the Ship Hydromechanics Department. The theory of combining a deep forefoot with a very narrow entry in the bow pointed towards the possibility of significantly reducing the violent slamming motion of a ship in a rough seaway. The theory was subsequently proven with the successful launch of 18 Axe Bow vessels which Damen has delivered for use in patrol, oil-rig supply, and other offshore duties where consistent speed, easy motion, heavy weather reliability, and good fuel economy are all essential factors. Now with Oberon, Amels has taken the proven Axe Bow concept and applied it to a different market, to meet the demands for reliable support vessels among large yacht owners.

OBERON Sea Axe Support Vessel by Amels

The 50-metre Sea Axe is equipped with a 30-metre open deck with a total working area of 230 square metres and 250 tonnes of deck-cargo capacity. The deck crane has a maximum lifting capacity of 14 tonnes when extended to 10 metres. Capable of crossing the Atlantic at a cruising speed of 18 knots, the Sea Axe 5009 can be configured according to the client’s needs. For example, the standard configuration provides accommodation for a maximum 12 crew and staff, although it is possible to provide accommodation for additional staff with a customised layout.
Where comfort and aesthetics often play second fiddle to functionality in the world of the support vessel, the Sea Axe range sets new standards, Luijendijk explains:

“We want to produce Fast Yacht Support vessels whose looks match their high performance, and which complement the mother ship rather than looking like the poor relation. This is why we offer the option of fairing and painting the Sea Axe hull to a standard that you would normally associate with a super yacht rather than support ship.Another option is to finish the deck in Bolidt artificial teak, which is very tough and hard-wearing but looks good too. Equally, we furnish cabins on a Sea Axe to the same standard as a crew interior on an Amels luxury yacht. We asked the market what it wanted from a Fast Yacht Support vessel, and comfort and aesthetics were important requirements. ”

In addition to the Sea Axe 5009, other models in the Sea Axe range are the smaller 3707 and the larger 6711, all available in customized configurations. To date, 24 Axe Bow vessels have been sold, of which 18 have already been delivered.

The Sea Axe range sales and marketing are managed by the shipyard themselves. Amels is the exclusive yacht building member of the Dutch Damen SHipyard Group, consisting of more than 34 shipyard and marine-related companies in the world. Damen employs over 6 700 people and in 2009 delivered 150 vessels, with an annual turnover of 1,4 billion Euros.

Richmond Yachts Launches the new superyacht Status Quo

Superyacht Status Quo is the latest yacht to be launched by Richmond Yachts, not only that, it is also their largest yacht ever built and the largest yacht ever built in Canada. Status Quo measures 150 feet and hit the waters on Saturday.

Ward Setzer is responsible for the hull and styling of the yacht Status Quo, which is entirely made of fiberglass.

The yacht will accommodate up to 12 guests in the owner’s party and eight crew of professionals. The interior design and layout of the superyacht Status Quo is similar to the previous launches, with sapele and pomele woods throughout, from the on-deck master to the captain’s stateroom. The latter, according to the yard could be a VIP cabin instead, located just aft of the wheelhouse. Status Quo also features a waterfall treatment in the dining room, the latter of which is also open to the salon.

Status Quo is currently undergoing the sea trials an is expected to top the maximum speed of 18 knots, thanks to her twin 2,000 hp MTUs. Some finishing touches are still to be completed. The yacht is for sale for $30 million.

Project KS005 of the Magellan 110 series, differs slightly from her predecessor with a 1.5 (five feet) meters extension of the sky lounge which gives the owner more interior space for entertaining. Both of the Magellan 110 motor yachts feature a steel hulls and aluminum superstructure intended for long-range explorations.

The ocean-explorer design of the Magellan 110, enable the owners to travel great distances safely with an expected range of 4500 nm at 12 knots, thanks to her twin 3406E DITA Caterpillar engines.

Accommodation onboard the Magellan 110, motor yacht comprises a spacious master stateroom on the main deck and 4 guest cabins on the lower deck. She is built to Lloyd’s + 100 A1 SSC yacht Mono G6 + LMC and MCA compliance.

April 07, 2010

Sanlorenzo, have launched their 13th SL108 called motor yacht DANDY SIX.

Sanlorenzo SL108 motor yacht DANDY SIX

Superyacht DANDY SIX is 33 metre (108 foot) and the largest of Sanlorenzo’s all fibreglass fly bridge planning yachts. The remaining of the fiberglass fleet includes the SL62, SL72, SL82 and the SL100New.

The SL108 series enables their owners to customize some features, such as décor and non-structural bulkheads which is exactly what the owner of motor yacht DANDY SIX has done. M/Y DANDY SIX’s owner requested an enlarged saloon made possible by pushing the forward bulkhead even farther forward and shifting the location of the stairs to the lower deck. This reconfiguration allowed for the inclusion of a media room. The yachts interior has been fitted in light tone ash and birch woods.

The delivery of Superyacht DANDY SIX should occur within the few weeks and we shall keep you updated.

Please contact the team at CharterWorld for more information on San Lorenzo yachts or to charter your own.
