    megayacht Couach Lounge 3800 yacht concept 640x360More Details Revealed on Couach Mega Yacht 3800 Lounge Range: Late last year, French shipyard Couach revealed its new line of megayachts that included the Lounge range of displacement explorer yachts designed by Clement Carbonne. This line draws on Couach’s experience in constructing fast, reliability military vessels of up to 50 meters in length.

    The design aim is for the owner and guests to forget they are on a yacht and to focus on the environment and luxurious amenities. This results in modern and uncluttered living spaces that reflect shore living, translating it to unique marine surroundings.

    One of the most remarkable features is the 3800 Lounge’s glass beach club door to the aft of the lower deck. This glass beach club door, according to the shipyard, is a first for a superyacht, as it is designed for use as a relaxed viewpoint for guests while underway. Carbonne indicated that the glass beach club door is a good use of space as most of the time, that area goes unused.

    The model’s exterior design include a large a fully customizable flybridge, with options for a wet bar and outdoor cooking station, Jacuzzi, lounging area and dining space.

    megayacht marina monacoNew Monaco Mega Yacht Marina to Open in 2018: Construction work has begun on a new Monaco-based megayacht marina that is expected to be fully operational by summer 2018, with complete delivery of offices and amenities by summer 2019.

    The December 2016 purchase of Cala del Forte by Société Monégasque Internationale Portuaire (SMIP) allows the marine to be fully integrated into the management of the Ports of Monaco. Cala del Forte will come under Monaco’s centralized booking system that also manages Port Hercule and the port of Fontvieille.

    Located in Ventimiglia, the new marina will have 171 total berths, ranging from 6.5 meters to 60 meters.  Interested yacht owners can purchase berths solely through Supertoys Monaco on the basis of 40-year leases. Upon completion, Cala del Forte will have one of the longest available concessions on the Riviera.

    The marina project has several unique advantages as the area is well sheltered in all weather conditions. Unique road access via tunnel makes the marina particularly secure. The location and shape of the outer walls provide excellent shelter for boats and allow water to circulate efficiently throughout the marina.

    SMIP is making every effort to ensure that all berths and quays in Cala Del Forte will be operational by the 2018 season.  Commercial buildings, shops and underground parking will be completed by the following summer. The previous develop had already carried out 40% of the work, but the project had been on hold for years.

    A public elevator or a cable railroad will connect Cala Del Forte with the old town of Ventimiglia.  SMIP is currently reviewing various options for pedestrian access between the marine and the historic town center just above. A variety of services will be available on site, including a shipyard, shops and gardens.

    SMIP does not intend to sell all of the berths in the marina as it prefers to provide a limited number of resident berths to achieve a balance between permanent and visiting yachts. In other marinas where a majority of berths have been sold to private individuals, concessionary companies have faced obstacles to effectively manage the port. Thus, the number of berths that will be available to long-term leaseholders will be limited.

    megayacht 80 canadosBig Boat Benefits Present in Canados 808 Megayacht: Is an 80-foot yacht with two owners’ staterooms, one of which is on the main deck, along with a tender garage and wide side decks that lead to a lounge-like bow area possible? Packed with amenities, the first unit of the new Canados Maximum 808, which will be handed over to new owners in July, will also reach a top speed of 30 knots.

    Canados has combined the amenities of 100-foot-plus superyachts with a hull length just short of that definition. The overall length of the 808 Maximum is 80’7” with a hull length of 75’8” in this Mario Casali-Too Design vessel. Canados indicated that the main deck master suite was of utmost importance, as was the choice between four or five staterooms. The four-stateroom version also needed to be flexible to allow for one VIP stateroom and four regular cabins. A second master stateroom could be substituted for a VIP suite.

    The shipbuilder also called for additional conveniences such as a tender garage., wide side decks for the benefit of the crew and private access to crew quarters. Canados also required superior speed, a characteristic of all of its projects.

    These design requirements challenged Casali. He noted that to accomplish the requirements, the main-deck floor had to be staggered into three slightly different levels. The dining area, which is a circular indoor-outdoor spot aft, and the saloon are the first level. The master bedroom is two steps down, with an additional three steps down leading to the walk-in wardrobe and bath.

    The 808 Maximus devotes more floor space to the wardrobe and bath than similar-size yachts. The staggered deck feature yields seven feet of headroom in the master suite, while also allowing installation of skylights above the bed and master sink.

    Hull number one has dual master suites, with the one below decks spanning the full 6.25m beam. Two guest statements and a single crew cabin for two comes with this layout.

    Owners will also get a choice of propulsion. Hull number one has twin 1,900hp MANs with an expected cruising speed exceeding 25 knots. Twin 1,550hp MANs are available with a cruise speed of closer to 23 knots. Range should be in the vicinity of 400 nautical miles.

    megayacht Airship feat insetGeorge Lucian Designs Futuristic Megayacht Airship: The 140m steel-hulled megayacht mothership designed by George Lucian Art includes a very special tender, namely a 100m helium-filled airship named Flying Diamond. Lucian says the idea for the project came from his passion for yachting and a fascination of the airships of the early 20h century that transported passengers across the ocean in an elegant and stylish manner with upscale amenities.

    The megayacht part of the concept features striking angular lines along with plenty of flush deck space to host other tenders. There is even room for a helicopter aft, a vehicle that almost seems conventional given the design.

    When not in use, the airship will be tethered for and aft. It will also have its own living quarters with a salon and one or two suites, along with crew quarters. Approximately 12 guests will have their own accommodations on the yacht, as well as 40 crew members. A facility for storing and producing helium for the airship will also be located on board the yacht.

    Lucian, who is based in Monaco, noted that the superyacht airship concept targets a visionary owner who enjoys sailing and flying, exploring from the air and entertaining guests with dinner and cocktails in the sky.

    CRN Launches Megayacht Cloud 9: CRN has launched the 74m megayacht Cloud 9 from its Ancona shipyard with the owner’s favorite Star Wars soundtrack playing in the background. Originally commissioned by a Turkish client who passed away after construction began, the megayacht was resold to an Australian owner.

    With engineering by CRN’s in-house team and exterior design by Zuccon International, the new owner brought in Andrew Winch Design to develop interior styling. Winch also designed the owner’s previous yacht, a 60m built by CMN and bearing the same name.

    Alberto Galassi, CRN chairman and CEO of the Ferretti Group indicated that Cloud 9 is a cutting-edge vessel that perfectly combines state-of-the art technology, astonishing design and the best CRN features.

    Cloud 9 spans five decks and has a beam of 13.5 meters with the ability to accommodate up to 16 guests in a master suite, VIP suite and six guests. Up to 22 crew will be accommodated in 13 cabins with berths for four staff members in two additional cabins. Twin Caterpillar 3516C engines will deliver a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.

    Ed Beckett, naval architect with Burgess Technical Services, believe the yacht sets a benchmark, not only in terms of immediate appearance, but also from the perspective of seakeeping and comfort, arrangement of her engineering systems, quality of paintwork and attention to detail throughout.

    Cloud 9 is slated for an April delivery following fitting out and sea trials.

    megaycht-dubaiLarge Megayacht Marina Project Started in Dubai by BP World: Global trade enabler DP has initiated an ambition marina project at its Mina Rashid facility in Dubai that should only increase the interest in the megayacht lifestyle in the Middle East. DP’s world team believes that Dubai sorely needs a homeport worth of the caliber of megayachts already found in the region. The Mina Rashid marina will be the region’s first such facility in terms of size and scope.

    Sultan Ahemd bin Sulayem, DP World’s  group chairman and chief executive, is committed to making Dubai the homeport of choice for the region. Bin Sylayem said that some superyacht owners feel as though their yachts are homeless in the region, moving from marina to marina, continent to continent depending on weather conditions, facilities, etc.

    The purpose of the new development is to create a world-class luxury marina in Dubai, centered on the destination itself, which caters to the needs of modern superyacht owners. Interest in Dubai as a destination has grown but has been hindered due to the lack of quality waterfront facilities such as those found in Italy or Monaco.

    DP believes that Dubai has what it takes to make the project successful, including governmental support, the lifestyle and all support services. All that remains is to design and build a facility that caters to bespoke megayachting.

    Mina Rashid is already a luxury cruise destination and homeport for top cruise operators. The company’s plan includes leisure facilities, cultural entertainment, hotels, villas, brokerage homes, chandlery services, maintenance facilities and crew training. The first phase, now under development, includes a 400-berth facility for 15-35m yachts and exclusive berths reserved for superyacht over 100 meters. It is expected to open during the first quarter of 2017.

    Phase Two is aimed squarely at the superyacht market, with a second, 70-berth marina dedicated to yachts 40m and up, including the largest luxury vessels afloat. This marina will have its own exclusive amenities. Bin Sulayem indicated that building will begin on the second marina once the company is fully satisfied with feedback from superyacht owners.

    megayacht-beringBering Yachts Reveals New 40m Megayacht: The Bering 130, the latest offering from Bering Yachts, extends the shipyard’s fleet  with the unveiling of this 40m expedition megayacht, which the yard has calling its flagship. Bering primarily constructs semi-custom yachts between 15m and 24 m, but has begun to place more emphasis on megayachts 30m and above.

    Demand is high in the exploration market, with almost every other yacht having global cruising capabilities, a characteristic that Bering has focused on since its establishment in 2007.

    The Bering 130 was design by Sabdes Yacht Design of Australia with naval architecture carried out in Russia. She has lines typical of an exploration yacht, simplistic and intrinsically function. Aesthetically, the yacht is well balanced, with inspiration coming from modern North Sea commercial ships that are highly regarded by Scandinavian naval architectural standards.

    Fuel capacity is an astonishing 17,000 gallons, meaning the Bering 130 can travel well over 6,000 nautical miles. She can accommodate 10 guests across one master suite and four staterooms, all of which have queen beads and en-suite heads. The superyacht also has a fully equipped gym and massage room.

    All equipment, parts and materials for the build process will be shipped from the United States to Bering’s shipyard in Antalya, Turkey, or to Zhangjiang, China. Bering notes that this international approach will provide the best price-to-quality ratio as these locations provide the right combination of marine industry expertise and favorable labor rates. These factors allow Bering to provide high quality at a competitive price.

    megayacht-CDMCdM to Move Into Custom Megayacht Market: Cantierei delle March (CdM) has decided to expand into the custom megayacht market following announcement of its latest 42m project. Best know as a semi-custom builder, the Italian shipyard is best now for steel explorer megayachts ranging from 24m to 42m. The shipyard, however has identified additional demand outside of these two ranges.

    In 2016, CdM joined forces with Swiss company Floating Life to develop  “Series-K,” an explorer range developed in collaboration with Studio Sculli for design and Studio Hydrotec for naval architecture. The new 42m vessel is part of this range and the first project from the newly launched side of the business called the CdM “One Off” Unit. M/Y K42, as it is current known, is on track for delivery at the end of 2018.

    The new strategy will not affect production of the two Darwin Class and Nauta Air lines that have a maximum of four deliveries per year. The new One-Off section of the shipyard will begin to manage bespoke builds within the 24 -45m segment and ensure that the new builds will reflect the DNA of CdM. It will deliver only one project every 18 to 24 months by a dedicated team specifically created for such projects.

    Over the last six years, CdM has fostered relationships with owners, designers and design engineers around the world, all of who have unique styles and influences close to those of the shipyard but don’t always fall within the two ranges. Therefore, CdM will address a small number of projects that will remain consistent with its mission.

    CdM Sales and Marketing Director Vasco Buonpensiere said the development of  the One Off unit has been a natural evolution as the shipyard has been ask for years to build such projects but has always declined such projects because it wanted to build such ventures on the best possible foundation. The unit is already working on an additional custom explorer yacht scheduled for delivery in 2019.
