numbers come numbers go

In the yachting world there’s only one thing that’s absolutely 100% authentic, tangible, quantifiable: the boat above all else and everything that went into the making which entails the owner, designer, engineers, skilled work force, suppliers making up this cast of easily recognizable actors. Then there’s the remainder, in other words those that for one reason or another knit together the environment, habitat, and image.

azimut grande trideck

Grande Trideck is clearly not only Azimut’s new flag ship but it is also the largest this yard has ever built and the first to sport three decks. Three renowned international designers provided precious input and collaboration as follows: Alberto Mancini drew up the exterior design, Achille Salvagni handled the interior layout and Pierluigi Ausonio the hull. Starting from this last section, the Azimuth Grande Trideck is efficient in both displacement and in planing mode thanks to a modern well proportioned hull. We’re talking about a D2P hull or a Displacement to Planing one which Ausonio’s studio P.L.A.N.A. developed with Azimut’s R&D department. This hull comprises a double chine which minimizes drag effect when at cruising speeds and ensures better sea keeping when in displacement mode. Two MTU engines with 2,400…

princess x80

Princess yard’s “Superfly” X Class kicked off with the X95 and has enlarged its range further with the smaller X80 which has been scheduled for launching in the autumn of this year. The X80 has been built with the collaboration of Olesinski naval architecture studio and Pininfarina Design. The ingredients of this superyacht are the same as the ones used for the larger model right from the design work featuring an “S” shaped helm control station or more simply the wheel house which in this case as well has been positioned along part of the upper deck according to this British yard’s ‘open concept’ idea of styling. According to this idea, having the wheel house on the upper deck is an advantage in terms of accrued space gained on the main…
