turning the tide

AS I WRITE THIS FROM MY HOME ON LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK, the Empire State is still in lockdown. That will probably still be the case as you read this, but there are hopeful signs related to life on the water. Recently, boat ramps and marinas opened up here—as well as in many other places around the country—so owners could prepare their vessels for the season and get out on the water. Cruising, fishing and the like with family members are picking up momentum, even as wild Northeast weather swings between a balmy 75-degree weekend and, the next week, snow showers and near-freezing temperatures. It’s strange days, indeed, but even still, a lot of people are showing that they want access to the water—even if by only taking in views of…

KUDOS I read most all boating magazines available, and your magazine continues to be my favorite—good stories about a variety of interesting boats. Three publications in the past year have featured our Vendetta yacht. They all did a very nice job, but your story topped them all. Thank you. Keep up the great work. RUDY SVRCEK VIA EMAIL CORRECTION In the May issue, we listed the wrong designer for the Marquis M42. The M42’s design is from Marquis’ in-house team with assistance from Donald L. Blount and Associates. We regret the error. READER FEEDBACK Looking for photos and yacht news?

sanlorenzo goes big

When sanlorenzo yachts in Italy set out to build its largest-ever yacht, the 64Steel Attila, it turned to two of the nation’s most respected design teams for help. Officina Italiana Design, which has worked with Sanlorenzo as well as with Riva Yachts, was tapped for the 64Steel’s exterior lines. For the interior, Sanlorenzo went to Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini, who have worked with Sanlorenzo as well as Tankoa, ISA, Baglietto, Custom Line and CRN. The result is a superyacht with innovative features, not the least of which is a barbecue inside the dining area on the main deck. The owner, an Argentine entrepreneur who commissioned the Sanlorenzo 46Steel Achille for delivery in 2012, wanted the ability to cook over open flames in the enclosed space. The shipyard made his dream…

island inspiration

FROM HIS SUMMER HOME on the Tyrrhenian Sea, Italian yacht designer Tommaso Spadolini can see the island of Montecristo in the Tuscan Archipelago. That’s where he got the name for his new Montecristo series of motoryachts, including the first two models: the Montecristo 30 and 43. They bookend a range that can include various other sizes. For 40 years, Spadolini has designed yachts for Baglietto, Wally, Codecasa and more. The new series draws on that experience, as well as on feedback from international clients. “It made sense to start with these,” he stated in a press release, “as the styling and layout can be easily adapted to create models in between with the same design DNA.”…

pushing boundaries

FOR THE PAST 45 YEARS, a couple in Florida have been clients, and friends, of Carmine Galati at Galati Yacht Sales. Theirs is the kind of relationship that involves going beyond the basics; when the couple wanted to be married on board, Galati became a notary so he could personally perform the ceremony. And so, when the couple wanted a customized build in the 120-foot range, Galati was eager to help them find the right yard for their vision. The couple already knew Hargrave Custom Yachts because they owned a 101-footer, and Galati had worked on deals with Hargrave for two decades. He felt like the builder was ready to flex its muscles a little more than usual. “Their abilities are amazing,” he says. “I knew they had it in them, in…

the smallest seakeeper

REVOLUTIONARY. That’s the word that Andrew Semprevivo, president and CEO of Seakeeper, uses to describe the company’s Seakeeper 1—the smallest model yet and one built entirely from the ground up. “All of our other models are very much the same,” he says. “We just kind of sized them down. They get smaller and lighter, but the overall geometry and mechanical makeup are the same.” The Seakeeper 1, on the other hand, had to be designed differently because the 23- to 30-foot boats it’s intended to go aboard are radically different from larger vessels. The unit had to be quieter because it will physically be closer to the skipper. It had to be flush-mounted, to lower the time and cost of installation for the smaller end of the market. It had to be…
