Begun as an on-spec project, Olokun was already halfway through construction before being sold by Camper & Nicholsons in March 2020 to the new owner. Working with Francesco Paszkowski (exterior & interior design), Camper & Nicholsons, who projected managed the build, and the owner’s team lead by Casadio Miami, Tankoa Yachts were still able to customize the superyacht to suit the owner’s needs even at the later stage in the project.

“This was a very stimulating project as the experienced client signed the contract when the boat was already 50 percent complete,” shared Giuseppe Mazza, Tankoa Yachts Sales Manager. “By collaborating with both C&N and the owner’s team, headed up by Casadio Miami, we were able to deliver a beautiful yacht that fully met the client’s expectations. I’m sure that the sporty lines of the 50-meter Tankoa combined with this new and catchy hull color will grab the attention of many enthusiasts in the most prestigious marinas in the world.”

While similar in appearance to her predecessors “Bintador” and Vertige” in terms of design, Olokun’s distinctive black hull received an advanced high-performance coating that reduces the temperature of the metal in sunlight by up to 10°C and will likely be applied to the next two builds currently being completed by Tankoa.

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).
