Feadship Shares Time-Lapse of New Boardwalk Superyacht Being Built

Published

on

Feadship has captured a time-lapse of the 252ft Boardwalk superyacht as it undergoes works before it leaves the shipyard and passes through the Dutch landscape on its way to the North Sea for sea trials.

Dutch shipyard Feadship has been working tirelessly on one of their latest builds, the 252ft superyacht known as Boardwalk (previously Project 707) and have captured the recent activity in a fascinating time-lapse.

Designed by de Voogt Naval Architects, Boardwalk is the 4th superyacht to be completed by Feadship in 2020 alongside Podium, Moonrise and Totally Nuts.

An earlier video shared by Feadship shows Project 707 captures the superyacht in an earlier stage of the build.

Now launched from Feadship’s shipyard at Aalsmeer earlier this month, the almost finished Boardwalk undertook a two day journey to the North Sea to undertake her sea trials, with the superyacht precariously passing through nineteen locks and bridges along the way.

Moving through the quaint Dutch landscape in the early hours of the morning, the superyacht makes curious bystanders appear tiny in comparison to the steel and aluminum superstructure.

Sharing the same name as the current superyacht owned by billionaire Tillman Fertitta, it is reported the family commissioned the Feadship build back in 2016 and will use this as their main yacht with the smaller 163ft Wesport built yacht still remaining in use.

The Feadship built Boardwalk is expected to be delivered in 2021.

New Triton “Titanic Explorer” Submersible Designed to Explore The Deepest Oceans

Published

Triton’s new 13000/2 TE (Titanic Explorer) is the world’s deepest-diving acrylic-hulled manned submersible ever produced and makes the deepest oceans that little more accessible.

Triton Submarines new 13000/2 TE (Titanic Explorer) is the world’s deepest-diving acrylic-hulled manned submersible ever produced and is more than capable of repeated journeys to explore the Titanic if that’s something you ever find yourself in a position to do.

Founded in 2007 and based in Florida USA, Triton have been creating industrial and personal submarines for a range of applications and now coming off the back of their first manned mission to explore the RMS Titanic in August 2019, have set about creating a personal submersible that could be used for professional deep-ocean exploration missions.

Capable of exploring up to depths of 2.5 miles (4,000 meters) the Triton 13000/2 Titanic Explorer (TE) is a two-passenger sub capable of carrying up to 500kg of equipment in its storage unit and uses a unique gull-wing design for the first time ever.

Positioned at the top of the submersible, the unique gull-wing design allows for streamlined ascent and descent of the submersible when the gull-wings are retracted and minimizes disturbance to the sea-bed when taking off as the propulsion system is no longer positioned at the bottom of the vehicle.

Another benefit to the gull-wing design is its ability to move in and around incredibly tight spaces.  A mounted camera and lighting system on the gull-wings also offers the ideal setup for macro work, scientific observation or close filming when needed.

When operated in Silent Glide mode, the Triton 13000/2 TE can track objects, maintain a heading and gently glide towards points of interest by moving in gentle sweeping turns without engaging its eight direct-drive thrusters. This helps minimize camera shake and disturbances to the sea floor when using the submersible for cinematic videography purposes.

After two years of construction, Italian shipyard Dynamiq have launched their first Gran Turismo Transatlantic GTT 135 hull, known as Stefania, from their shipyard in Massa, Tuscany.

The 135ft ft metallic golden hull design is an evolution of Dynamiq’s GTT concept and is a truly international collaboration with exterior design of the superyacht completed by Monaco-based Dobroserdov Design, interior styling by Miami-based Giuseppina Arena, and engineering completed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects in the Netherlands.

Designed around the owner’s desire for a superyacht that would fit their active lifestyle, Stefania was created with an oversized pool deck on the main deck and a beach club that adjoins the bar area to maximize the outdoor living space.

The large sundeck area is also divided into multiple spaces with a Jacuzzi, large sun pads, and two 75inch tv screens in one section, and an entertaining bar in the other.

Built to accommodate ten guests in five staterooms, Stefania’s Art Deco-inspired master suite and guest bedrooms are located on the lower deck, while the living areas and saloon are found on the main deck.

“We are very proud of this achievement, especially in these challenging COVID-19 times” says Dynamiq founder and CEO Sergei Dobroserdov. “This beautiful 41-metre superyacht looks impressive and fresh and expresses the innovative and chic soul of Dynamiq yachts. Just as importantly, she also performs at the top of her class with the latest technology on board such as the Hull Vane aft foil and a unique torque compensation system by Rubber Design, to name just a few. We’re sure she’ll be a source of exclusivity and pride for her owners, a family that didn’t follow the mainstream path and selected the Dynamiq GTT 135 because it’s the best vessel in her size range, together with her reverse bow, long waterline and master cabin located in the most comfortable place amidships on the lower deck. We are now completing the sea trials where our team and surveyors witnessed how her technical innovations took performance and comfort to the next level.”

After Stefania has completed her sea trials, she will be based in Monaco for charter and managed by Arcon Yachts (who also oversaw the build throughout construction).

Dynamiq have noted a second GTT 135 hull will be available for a Summer 2022 delivery with price starting from 16,500,000 € (approx USD$20 million).
