Founded in Monaco in 2014 by yacht broker and designer Sergei Dobroserdov, Dynamiq is the young yacht building company behind the sporty GTT 160 superyacht concept targeted at the next generation of yachting enthusiasts.

Aimed at active owners equally comfortable navigating the globe as they are enjoying lazy island-hopping holidays, the GTT 160 is capable of Transatlantic crossings and is a more manageable and economical sized yacht that still affords the same luxuries usually associated with much larger superyachts.

Speaking of the latest addition to the Dynamiq lineup, CEO Sergei Dobroserdov recalled, “The idea was to create the most attractive proposal for a superyacht of just under 50 metres. There are so many 50-metre yachts below 500GT available, but they all look very similar with pretty much the same functionality. We asked ourselves ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients?’ The answer was to focus on modern owners priorities and leave the less important things aside. So we decided to design the GTT 160 with the accent on the key factors: well-being, efficiency and price.”

With a focus on well-being and in a first for a superyacht this size, the main deck aft has been designed around the large 120sqm beach club that includes a hot tub for 12 guests along with a sauna, hamman and gymnasium while on the upper deck, guests can enjoy the cinema lounge with a 75 inch movie screen or gather at the entertainers bar.

Designed to accommodate 12 guests comfortably, the GTT 160 features six luxuriously styled guest cabins and crew quarters for up to eight staff. Situated on the same deck as the beach club, the stately master stateroom is found at the main deck forward and includes two large private side balconies.

To complete its versatility, the GTT 160 has room for a 21-foot tender in the forward garage and comes with a touch-and-go helipad platform able to accommodate helicopters with a maxium take-off weight of 3,000kg.

Prices for the Dynamic GTT 160 begin at €19,900,000 with speed upgrades like the sports focused “S Version” available for an extra €850,000 (engines upgraded to a more powerful set of MAN V12-1800 engines to increase top speed to 23 knots).

As a highly configurable superyacht, Dynamic GTT 160 owners can use the online configurator to select extra packages including the limited “CARAT” edition (+ €1,000,000) offering the entire exterior being painted with Royal Gold metallic paint, a stabilization and silent package, Bentley Home interior furnishings, a Steinway Lyngdorf audio package, Serdanili gold bathroom accessories, Miele kitchen appliances, upgrade to marble throughout the superyacht and a host of other luxuries.

Alternatively if you don’t want the entire CARAT package, owners can also select individual upgrades such as metallic paint option for an extra €125,000 or interior packages like the “Minotti for Dynamiq” package for €275,000, the “Sabrina for Dynamiq” package for €445,000 or the accessory package from Bottega Veneta including cashmere throws and decorative pillows for €58,000.

In an often overwhelming decision making process, Dynamiq’s easy online configurator allows the yacht design to be easily customized and pricing transparent right down to the last detail.

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.

Wally Yachts Reveals First Hybrid Yacht: The 88ft WHY200

Published

Monaco-based yacht builder Wally has revealed the design of their first-ever hybrid yacht – the spacious 88ft WHY200, offering 50% more living space compared to traditional designs of the same length.

After more than 25 years creating some of the world’s most revolutionary sailing and power yachts, Italian based Wally Yachts has turned their hand to the “compact” superyacht category and have created the 88ft (27m) WHY200 – their response to the demand for a spacious design without the speed concessions of a displacement yacht.

Led by Wally founder and Chief Designer Luca Bassani and Ferretti Group’s engineering department, Wally Yachts worked alongside interior design firm A.Vallicelli & C Studio to create a streamlined design offering up to 50% more living space than a traditional yacht of the same length.

“In keeping the yacht registration under 24meters (78′ 8″) load line, we have been able to optimize the costs of running and berthing, while still providing the space and volume benefits of a much larger vessel thanks to its innovative full-wide-body design,” shared Stefano de Vivo, Wally Managing Director.

One of the design methods Wally enlisted to achieve more than 2,153 square feet of indoor living area was absorbing the space used for exterior walkways into a full-beam salon. This use of space created a significantly larger open-plan living area and, when joined to the glass-encased sky lounge by a carbon fiber staircase, makes a seamless transition between living spaces.

Another stand-out feature of the Wally WHY200 is the owner’s suite located at the yacht’s bow. Wrapped on all sides by glass, the oversized owner’s suite offers a 200-degree view as far as the eye can see.

“Providing owners with an elevated experience onboard has always been central to our mission at Wally. We have had a longstanding vision to create a wrap-around main deck in glass that would provide so many lifestyle benefits to the owner and now finally the technology has made this possible, unlocking game-changing extra interior volume on this deck”, confirmed Luca Bassani, Wally Founder and Chief Designer. “It has allowed us to create a sensational and unprecedented 37-square-meter (398 square feet) owner’s suite at the bow, which takes the onboard experience to a whole new level. Imagine the feeling of waking up to uninterrupted 200-degree views through vast windows in the bow, as if you are floating above the water. It is a genuine marvel to behold, we are especially proud of what has been achieved with this revolutionary layout.”

With the WHY200, Wally has also recognized a change in owners’ use of the outdoor living spaces over the years and have been mindful when designing spaces with ample shade from the sun and protective measures from the wind and rain. An extended pillarless overhang above the main deck aft and flanking glass panels provide shelter to the alfresco dining and lounging area, which has unobstructed views on three sides and seamlessly flows into the main salon past sliding full-height doors. The extended overhang also offers a larger upper deck aft, with space to recline on sunloungers or sit at the shaded dining table.

Down on the beach club of the WHY200, guests can also enjoy access to the ocean via three expandable fold-out wings. Two concealed garages are also easily accessible and offer a tremendous amount of storage space for a yacht this size, including a four-meter tender and multiple water toys.

The WHY200 is Wally’s first hybrid yacht and is optimized for both full- and semi-displacement cruising. Featuring an adaptive multi-propulsion system, the WHY200 is a balance between the voluminous but slower full displacement yachts and the restricted but lighting fast planing yachts. When making short trips, the crew can operate the WHY200 in hyper displacement mode to achieve a cruising speed of 20 knots, but when taking slower trips can switch to the economical long-range displacement mode.

No prices have been revealed yet however, Wally has indicated the WHY200 will make its official debut at the Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monaco this coming September.

US-based Triton Submarines have shared the latest model to leave their workshop floor – the 3300/6 personal submersible in “Tiffany Blue” as per the owners request. As the world’s first 6-person acrylic-hulled sub ever to be constructed, the 3300/6 features the world’s largest transparent, spherical passenger compartment and offers up to 6 passengers at a time an underwater experience of a lifetime.

Built on the same platform as the Triton 3300/3, the 3300/6 can reach a diving depth of up to 3,300 ft (1000m) and is optimized for use and deployment from a superyacht. The latest model offers unparalleled space and comfort levels and addresses the demand from mega-yacht owners and tourism operators for a larger capacity submersible that allows for families and groups of guests to share the diving experience.

Considered the highest-capacity, 3300ft rated personal submersible in the world, the Triton 3300/6 has been designed to carry up to 6 passengers and allows for generous amounts of head, shoulder, elbow, and legroom, although it can also be configured to accommodate only four passengers for the ultimate in passenger comfort.

Featuring a generously sized hatch that has been angled rearwards to maximize ease of boarding, the Triton 3300/6’s adjacent high-grip tread area makes it easy to board, and Triton’s signature ‘pontoon’ design ensures that throughout the boarding process, the submersible remains level and stable on the water.

Descending down the set of steps, passengers will find a luxuriously finished interior complete with hand-finished leather upholstery and the pilot’s seat located near the rear of the cabin. The passenger seats are located closer to the front of the acrylic “bubble” for an almost 360° view.

When not in use exploring the wonders of the ocean, the Triton 3300/6 can be stored, launched, and recovered from within a traditional superyacht tender garage and has a footprint similar to that of the 3300/3, but with a lower overall height.

Triton’s engineers will work collaboratively with yacht builders (for new builds) and the engineering team (for existing vessels) to establish the full requirements for efficient and seamless integration of a Triton submersible with a yacht.

By choosing to mount all external equipment lower down on the latest model, the Triton 3300/6 takes full advantage of the space between the dual-gantry tender lift arrangements typically found on superyachts.

Additionally, Triton’s engineers are able to work collaboratively with shipyards for new builds and the engineering teams for existing yachts to ensure the seamless integration of an owners Triton submersible with their yacht.

While no price has been released for the new Triton 3300/6, the smaller 3-seater model is in the ballpark of $3 million. For more information visit Triton Submarines website.
