editor’s letter

The 128ft sailing yacht G2 got the royal treatment when it cruised into Puerto Ayora in the Galápagos last summer (page 48). A band played them in and the owners were met on the docks by the mayor, such was his relief to see a foreign vessel back in his waters. Just a few days earlier, Ecuador had reopened the Galapagos to tourism, and G2 was the very first boat on the scene. If ever you needed reminding of the economic impact of yachting, this is a pretty good one. The past year has seen an explosion in yacht sales – and not just the big stuff. Everything from dinghies and RIBs to the very largest motor yachts have been flying off the shelves as people seek to break the…

viva forever

REVEALING THE LATEST NEWS, TRENDS AND TECH Feadship has launched the 308ft Viva, previously known as Project 817. Exterior design is by Azure and De Voogt, while the interior is by Peter Marino Architects. “The owner’s ‘less is more’ philosophy has influenced every aspect of the design inside and out, with an abundance of clean lines,” Feadship says. The owner, who had a previous Feadship 105ft shorter than Viva, did not want to exceed his previous yacht’s footprint. A diesel-electric propulsion, advanced exhaust treatment system and large bank of batteries work in concert to achieve efficient power production and usage. One exception to the “less is more” rule is the tender garage planned for two elegant and reliable custom tenders by Tenderworks that fit across the yacht’s 46ft beam.feadship.nl…

eye opener

Salvador Dalí was the darling of New York and Paris’s high society. Among the artist’s many friends in high places was Arturo López-Willshaw (shown here with Dalí – and dog – in 1956), a Chilean diplomat who made his fortune by selling guano. This fertilizer fortune financed his taste for the finer things in life. The diplomat’s go-to designer was French decorator and antique connoisseur Georges Geffroy, who created the interior of his lavish 193ft 1931 Camper & Nicholsons, Gaviota IV. For his wife, Patricia, he bought a 1952 study by Dalí, a Virgin based on the likeness of the master’s muse, Gala. The painter, at the height of his fame, relished the persona he had created for himself. “Every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of…

Let there be sun Foggy conditions did not temper spirits or succeed in concealing German yard Lloyd Werft’s big new launch. Despite secrecy surrounding this project, 459ft Solaris was highly anticipated. The 11,000GT explorer owes its simple, modem lines to Australian industrial designer Marc Newson, his first superyacht design, and features eight decks, a helipad, sundeck and spacious beach club, as well as two of the largest Azipods ever installed on a private yacht. Lloyd Werft is no stranger to large projects of course, many of them commercial. In the stellar theme, the yard previously delivered the 377ft explorer yacht Luna in 2010, which was far smaller than Solaris at around 5.655GT. lloydwerft.com TAKE A BOW The bow of a top-secret 470ft-plus Lürssen project known as Luminance was united with the rest of…
