acting together pays off

One of the most debated topics among yachting operators is the one regarding the effective commercial value international yacht shows possess. The points of view are invariably diverse, at times even antithetical. It is in fact quite understandable that an accessories producer wishes to jump at the opportunity to concentrate his business contacts in the same place and in the same days which would otherwise translate in more diversified trips over longer periods. But it is equally plausible that a large shipyard which is more intent in consolidating the brand’s image by exhibiting a considerable part of his fleet to visiting parties worries about the weight of the enormous costs involved for a stand dedicated to business-to- consumer contacts, especially when taking into account the fact that the number of…

baglietto 40 m rph

Will hit the water in 2012 while the new 40 metre RPH (raised pilot house) by Baglietto is still wrapped up in mystery. The only clue being at this point in time: a tiny image of the exterior design work initialled by Horacio Bozzo from Argentina who’s living in Italy.What we know to date is that the yacht which will be all in aluminium, will be sporting interior layouts drawn up by naval architect Achille Salvagni. Michele Gavino CEO at Baglietto commented: “We’re proud of this special all custom project, which is a further step forward toward that special degree of excellence in build which represents our efforts’ first and foremost goal and is further proof of the will our yard has in perpetrating technical renewal while developing naval engineering”.

mazu yachts 82

Turkish yard Mazu Yachts has recently announced the sale of the first Mazu 82 the yard’s flag ship. The fleet is made up of the following: 38’, 42’, and 52’ models all of them share the same company policy which privileges life “en plein air”. The 82’ has been requested by a Turkish owner and is fruit of a team effort involving yard founder Halit Yukay and designers Tanju Özelgin and Parlak Kirmizi. The superstructure is lined with ample window like ports yet it is on the small side by comparison to many other motor yachts of the same size so as to highlight and privilege the exteriors where deck spaces are well protected by substantial bulwarks. Three IPS 1350 engines guarantee a top speed of about 40 knots and thanks to…

princess yachts x 95

In the course of thorough restructuring at Princess Yachts UK, this renowned British yard has initialled an agreement to work with Pininfarina a famous Italian design studio. The small R35 is the first born from this joint team work. It is, all things considered revolutionary as well as being technological also thanks to an evolutionary hull design contributed by BAR which sports loads of experience in developing America Cup yachts. The second model off the chocks, like the first further diversifies Princess Yachts range which is set upon renewing preceding yachts and superyachts, we’re looking at the X95 which in Anthony Sheriff’s own words - Executive Chairman, at Princess yachts “ goes beyond and breaks the mould of traditional yacht design. The unique open plan architecture is brought to life through…

heesen yachts project aquamarine

Project Aquamarine is the first unit of the renewed 5000 Aluminium Class the same one of yachts like “Van Tom”, “Monaco Wolf” and “Satori”. The new project differs somewhat mainly below the waterline where Van Oossanen Studio architects and primarily the yard’s technicians redesigned waterlines to obtain greater efficiency. The transom was raised to insert the tunnels in which to house the required drives. This way 12% gain in hull efficiency was gained and maintained throughout the entire speed range also thanks to a pair of interceptors. Furthermore the new design work reduced draught to 2.15 metres. This way Project Aquamarine is safe to cruise shallower waters like those commonly exploited in the Bahamas. So as to reduce toxic emissions, Heesen Yachts has foreseen the installation of new generation MTU 16V…
