pandemia and yachting

At the moment of writing this editorial, some of the most important shipyards in the world are having to face up to a deeply felt climate of inconsistencies for the first time. To many this is the first effect Covid-19 has caused. It is unexpectedly currently expanding in every direction which is also due to a collective, lack of command and control. It would beå not only superficial – but also very much out of place – to use these lines to offer a still image of a rapidly changing situation that to be told in plain words would require such fast dynamic tools that even internet’s speed would appear slow, too slow. And we’re not here to list the good and bad guys meaning the Countries where the construction…

permare amer 120

The new Amer 120 model was presented in the course of Cantiere Per-mare’s 47th anniversary celebrations. The launch date is yet to be finalized although it has been scheduled for 2021. Following the 120, Amer’s 136 is the next in line for construction while the new Amer 120 will be the fleet’s flag ship which is currently the Amer Cento Quad. The new 120 will be equipped with four propelling Volvo Penta IPS engines. The first rendering shows how the new model takes after the Cento in terms of design styling even if several elements differ in that they have been enriched with tinted cut glass panels. Most probably the Amer 120 will be equipped with most of the latest eco-friendly “green “ technical solutions already introduced and installed in Permare’s…

dominator yachts 42 m ilumen

Dominator Yachts has recently announced the beginning of construction work on a new flag ship ordered by a German owner during a party held to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary. It’s a 42 metre M/Y, an Ilumen Superyacht. This three decker superyacht will be named Peppermint and is the result of modern technology’s software programmes. FEM analyses were widely exploited for this 42 metre so as to develop an advanced structural layout capable of guaranteeing wanted parameters in terms of sturdiness and on board safety thanks also to an extensive use of vacuum bagged technology and carbon fibre deployed in the same way on Dominator Yachts’ preceding 28 metre. The hull shape was obtained by scrupulous hydro-dynamic studied by using a combination of mathematic algorithms and CFD simulations so as…

sedna yachts sedna 100

Brazilian group Sedna builds cruisers, fishing boats and hi- performance models. It debuted in the superyacht market with the Sedna 100 initialled by Italian Studio Marino Alfani Design. So far the project design work for this yacht will be presented in the course of summer next. So far the project design work has taken all of three years starting in 2017 when the owner signed the contract, for a very sporty looking motor yacht as is the norm for this Sao Paulo shipyard. In the course of time however and considering the owner’s requests, the project design was re-directed to become more of a cruiser. This translated into another deck privileging exterior spaces. The final result turned out to be a modern yacht with well distributed volumes which streamline the yacht’s silhouette…

sunseeker 100 yacht

One of Sunseeker’s latest 2020 models is the Sunseeker 100 Yacht, the new flag ship of the British shipyard’s Yacht fleet comprises a flying bridge while maintaining high performance levels. This yacht is almost 30 metres long with an A, EC rating which falls within the 24 metre long limit featuring an awesome design normally found on considerably larger superyacht models. In addition to the design, which recalls the yard’s latest styling seen in every line, what is most astonishing is the quality of the decor below decks and in the distribution of the spaces. Furthermore what’s still more impressive is the owner’s full beam master suite situated in the bow area which is featured in all of the Sunseeker superyacht range. The shipyard’s entry level to this category is…
