The world’s largest chrome wrap done on a yacht, while fully in the water.

It took 13 days and 600sqm of gold chrome vinyl wrap to cover the superyacht formally known as ‘Kinta’. This project represents the largest chrome yacht wrap done fully in the water. To achieve this, LuxWrap set about the task using cherry pickers, floating pontoons, scaffolding and a team of men at the Port of Viareggio, Italy which also happens to be the port of registry for the superyacht. Some delays including rain caused the completion of the wrap project to take 13 days instead of the scheduled 10 but considering the complexity of the job that is still remarkable.

LuxWrap not only had the massive job of covering M/Y Bellami.com’s exterior, swim step stairways and jacuzzi area but they were also tasked with covering the yachts many Jetski’s, Seabobs and Tender boat as well.

As well as the largest chrome yacht wrap done fully in the water, LuxWrap believes the Bellami.com Superyacht project may also be the worlds largest chrome vinyl installation on a single object, also, based on square meters – possibly the largest yacht wrap ever done.

  • 6 full-size cabins
  • Steel and aluminium construction
  • Hybrid propulsion option
  • Ample opportunity for customization
  • Comprehensive tech specs
  • Design by Giorgio M. Cassetta

Tankoa Yachts has just announced it is extending its superyacht range into a more compact 45 metre range beginning with the T450 range. This will be the first time Tankoa has produced a superyacht under 50m. Tankoa assures that the smaller vessel of just over 400GT will be produced in keeping with the brand’s hard-earned reputation for quality and comfort combined with innovation and elegance

“Building on the extraordinary success of our 50m platform with Bintador and Vertige already delivered and two more in build, the T450 confirms Tankoa’s drive to build yachts below 500GT that are designed with a big boat mentality and quality” says Giuseppe Mazza, Tankoa Sales Manager. “This new 45m model has been designed to provide maximum flexibility, and in terms of interior and exterior space it feels like a much larger vessel.”

Unusually for a 45m superyacht of 405GT, the T450 can accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins. This accommodation comprises a full-beam owner’s stateroom and a VIP suite on the main deck forward as well as four en-suite cabins on the lower deck.

An open-plan dining room/main salon with full-height glazing overlooks the sweeping, open aft deck, which recalls the design of some super sailing yachts. This huge terraced area functions as an open-air beach club with a glass-fronted pool at its centre flanked by staircases down to the water-level swim platform. But the flexible design provides alternative layout solutions, such as aft-facing seating on the lower level and a large bar unit on the upper level.

The spacious sundeck offers the option of another pool, sunbeds, shaded dining area, a forward bar with sofa seating and a dayhead.

The bridge deck offers more al fresco dining for a full complement of guests and a sky lounge that can function as a media room. There is another generous lounging/social area on the open foredeck in front of the wheelhouse, where the guest tender and rescue render are stowed.

In addition to the guest cabins on the lower deck, there is a large lazarette in the stern, the galley and crew dinette, extra cold storage, laundry, and accommodation for 8 crew members plus the captain on the bridge deck with direct access to the wheelhouse.

The T450 can be fitted with hybrid propulsion to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as reducing noise and vibration to a minimum.

Presented by The Italian Sea Group, the “Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63” has been inspired by the hybrid Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37 and references the year of Lamborghini’s beginnings – 1963.

As a new super sport motor yacht that blends the best of the nautical and sports car worlds, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63″ bears the same Lamborghini style steering wheel with its iconic fighter jet style “start” button, and a signature Lamborghini “racing style” seat for the captain.

The project initially started as a joint design analysis between Tecnomar and the Lamborghini Style Center, to interpret common traits and blend the DNA of the two brands into an ultra-luxury sports yacht.

Sporting two MAN V12-2000HP engines for a total 4000CV, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 motor yacht can reach 60 knots of speed and will be the fastest boat in the Tecnomar fleet of The Italian Sea Group. The unmistakable signature Lamborghini fighter pilot styled “start & stop” button will also be present on the yacht in two units, one per engine.

The “Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63” yacht is available in three main variants:

LOUNGE VERSION: The open space is the concept, functional and essential, with a fully equipped kitchen, headboard for guests and closet, a large open space with lounge sofas and wardrobe. Last but not least the owner’s private bathroom to always have your privacy.

1 CABIN VERSION: Maintaining the design and style of the lounge version, the kitchen is divided from the bow area, thus obtaining a king size bed from the sofa. The bow cabin is therefore equipped with large spaces and a dedicated owner bathroom.

2 CABIN VERSION: The new ideal solution to optimize space and have the best of comfort, Two independent cabins. The owner cabin with its king size maintains comfort levels worthy of a super luxury hotel. The guest cabin was created to accommodate a couple of friends or two children thanks to the possibility of having two separate singles that can be joined together in a large king size. The shared bathroom has significant spaces with ample storage and a dream shower.

Sharing on the collaboration, Giovanni Constantino CEO of The Italian Sea Group said, “In May we announced that we had signed the agreement with Automobili Lamborghini and today we are presenting Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, a motor yacht that I am sure will become a futuristic icon like the car that inspired it. Select owners around the world will own not only the fastest Tecnomar motor yacht in the fleet, but a unique Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63. I am proud to have (been) chosen to create this innovative and challenging project with Automobili Lamborghini that combines technology, excellence in design, quality and performance and that will give us great satisfaction “.

“This yacht best represents what it means for us to create a quality partnership,” said Katia Bassi, Marketing and Communication Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “The essence of all our collaborations consists in transferring our style and our experience in worlds that despite their diversity, have (something) in common with our traits so that they can be interpreted to add value. If I had had to imagine a Lamborghini on the water, this would have been my vision. I am therefore happy to celebrate this success today”.

Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is not merely an exercise in style and design, but represents the vanguard of luxury speed boats. Inspired by Lamborghini super sports cars’ performance, two of the most innovative elements are at the core of its design concept – speed and dynamic lightness.

Like their supercar siblings, the motor yachts will feature extensive use of carbon fiber, guaranteeing an ultralight boat classification with a maximum weight of 24 tons for 63 feet in length and is the fastest Tecnomar performance yacht to date. Looking inside the Tecnomar by Lamborghini will feature two bedrooms and a bathroom all of which are 100% customizable to an owner’s tastes through the Lamborghini Ad Personam program.

Customers who wish to use the Ad Personam Program can configure their yacht directly by contacting the commercial department of The Italian Sea Group at the following email address: sales@tecnomar63.com

With the support of their team of experts, it is possible to follow all the stages of the project starting from defining the colors, materials, to the production status of your super sports yacht.

Tecnomar is currently taking orders with deliveries set to begin from next year.

While reported earlier this year that this year’s Monaco Yacht Show would still be going ahead in September, albeit, under much different circumstances, organizers of the event have since made the decision to cancel the 2020 Monaco Yacht Show.

Hoping that events would be viable in the later part of 2020, show organizer Informa had initially planned on holding a smaller not-for-profit event to aid the superyacht industry but has since been in talks with stakeholders and partners within the international superyacht industry regarding ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns.

With many of the worlds superyachts currently located in the US and Caribbean for the forseeable future, and with global travel restrictions in place, it was decided that it was in the industry’s best interest to postpone the Monaco event until next year while focusing on the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show which is still on schedule for October 2020.

“Like many other industries, the international super yachting community has experienced significant disruption in 2020”, Chief Executive of Informa Markets Charlie McCurdy shared. “As we move to the other side of COVID-19, we are remaining agile in how we are supporting our partners and customers, flexing our events calendar, adapting products and providing digital alternatives where beneficial to best meet the needs of international communities through this difficult period. To this end, we are focusing our efforts in the latter part of the year on delivering a strong platform to showcase the industry at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in late October, with the Monaco Yacht Show now set to return in style in September 2021, when it will celebrate its 30th anniversary.”

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the largest international yachting events globally and is expected to host more than 900 boats, including 100 superyachts.
