From September 26 to 29, in the iconic Port Hercules of the Principality of Monaco will host the Monaco Yacht Show to celebrate the quintessence of the superyacht lifestyle. This year more than 120 extraordinary one-off superyachts are on display,of which 40 new launches are unveiled in a worldwide debut.
Here are some of them
Anvera 48, presented last May at Versilia Yachting Rendez-vous in worldwide premiere will be on display in Monaco.
With the Anvera 48, LG-YACHT has once again applied its innovative philosophy to create a yacht entirely built in carbon fibre, extremely light crossover boat featuring trendy, unparalleled design shapes and details and embodying the excellence of Made in Italy production. Carbon is increasingly used instead of traditional fibreglass because of its enhanced characteristics: greater resistance and lightness (which means particularly low consumption); efficiency; speed; reduced waste, CO2 and pollution; as well as the possibility to obtain innovative design shapes. The result, in a nutshell, is a high-performance and environmentally-friendly product. 14.50 metres long and up to 4.91 metres wide, Anvera 48is characterised by two special uprights around the deckhouse, the helm station, and the cockpit roofing, and by the air vent integrated in the single lightweight pillar supporting the superstructure. The Anvera 48is fully customisable with top-quality and stylish finishes. At the Monaco Yacht Show will be on display also the Anvera 55.
Just a little over a year since its presentation, Arcadia Yachts is proud to announce that the new A105 will make its debut even in Monaco.
Arcadia Yachts’ core vision in the development of its models has always been to start with the Owner and the use they intend to make of the boat, and then craft the latter to give form and substance to the client’s ideas and wishes. There is no doubt that this idea underpins the success of the A105 project developed by the yard in collaboration with the Milan-based Hot Lab studio. A design so flexible that it can be adapted to the very diverse requests from the Owner. The A105’s chiselled masculine lines are one of the yard’s trademarks but here have been reinterpreted to raise the communal guest and al fresco areas – the very heart and soul of every Arcadia – to new heights. The result is that contact with nature and the surrounding world is intensified yet also respected thanks to large apertures which reduce the need for air-conditioning, solar panels integrated into the superstructure, and the extensive use of cutting-edge highly efficient thermal insulating glass.
Creating a sense of conviviality and chilled-out relaxation aboard remains one of Arcadia’s core values. The aft deck aboard the A105 can comfortably seat up to 10 people for a formal dinner, while the lounge area has space for a further 12 guests. The latter can also convert to a further dining area offering the Owner the possibility to having more than 20 people aboard to dine at once. This same principle was applied to the concept for the upper deck as a whole. Here both interior and exterior spaces are cleverly mixed to create a further spectacular relaxation area. Offering just under 30 square metres of space, the convertible sky lounge can be used 365 days a year and opens aft towards the sun lounge which, at 35 square metres, doesn’t just provide Owners with a further convivial area with direct sea contact but also shelters the whole of the aft deck. To satisfy any and all of Owners’ requirements, Arcadia has also created a variety of different interior layout options at the design stage that play with the inside-outdoor ethic. Currently over 50 combinations on the design have been developed to showcase just how flexible this craft is and to help clients select the solutions that best mirror their own wishes. .
At the Monaco Yacht Show Azimut Yachts will feature boats from the Grande Line: Azimut Grande 27 Metri, Azimut Grande 32 metri and Azimut Grande 35 Metri.
The Azimut Grande 32 Metri has big, airy, interior and exterior spaces. Outdoors, designer Stefano Righini provides guests not only with a big beach club in the stern, but also a Fly Deck offering a remarkable 70 sq m of space split into three distinct areas: a dining area, a central living space, and finally a relaxation area in the bow with a hydromassage tub, which can become a second lounge area at the owner’s request.
The airiness of the outside spaces is complemented by the luminosity of the interiors designed by Achille Salvagni. The full-beam owner’s suite, for example, is flooded with light through full-height glazed surfaces on both sides. Propulsion is provided by two 2,200 mhp MTU engines, driving the yacht to a top speed of 26.5 knots.
Baglietto will attend the Monaco Yacht Show with the Baglietto 48m T-Line, the latest construction in steel and aluminum with a displacement hull. The Baglietto 48m has sleek interiors by Francesco Paszkowski Design, and Baglietto Interior Design planned the layout of the interiors, combining modernity and luxury.
This 48m sistership of MY Andiamo includes many upgraded spaces. The vessel boasts over 350sqm (3767 sqft) of luxurious space, with room for many new features. The exterior spaces are vast, with the sundeck alone composed of 140sqm (1506 sqft) of al fresco space, including dining space, a sunbathing area, and an infinity pool. The contemporary and elegant interiors, designed by the Baglietto Interior Design, include four guest cabins on the lower deck, in addition to the master suite on the main deck. The clear colors of the Italiannational walnut, perfectly combined with touches of gold and bronze, create a sophisticated and warm atmosphere. Floor to ceiling windows provide excellent natural light and views on the main deck and the skylounge. New on this yacht, the Beach Club, which offers 47sqm of space to relax with a steam shower, bar and an additional area perfect for a gym, massage or spa/relaxation space. The Beach Club faces the sea, ideal for those tranquil moments on the water.
After the launch in l, Besenzoni will present its new brand Unica – unique yacht accessories, featuring completely custom and exclusive products at the Monaco Yacht Show
To better focus on the expanding market for bespoke super yachts, Besenzoni has come up with Unica, a special range of unique accessories which will enable us to meet all of our customers’ requirements, from the design to the creation of tailor-made products, and to provide valuable support for on-board assembly and ongoing after-sales service worldwide.
In addition to this key development – and as part of a project aimed at achieving high-end specialisation – Besenzoni has formed a new partnership with Marine Leather, a leading company in luxury leather products, which, on the occasion of the Croisette Boat Show, will upholster the award-winning Matrix helm seat with their exclusive custom processing outdoor leather.
40 m Explorer
CBI NAVI in Viareggio has just delivered the 40mt Explorer Yacht “Stella di Mare”. The motor yacht has been designed by Hydro Tec, both Naval Architecture and Exterior Design, and by Fossati Design Bureau, as for the Interior Design. The Yacht left immediately on a summer cruise with her European Owners.
Full Custom design for the interiors, directly developed on European Owner’s commission, with Italian timeless elegance combining sophisticated materials together (walnut, wenge’, cherry wood, black lacquered wood, brown, beige leather, bronze mirrors and glass, brushed bronze as unique metal finishing) all in mat/semi-mat finishing giving a comfortable, harmonic feeling on a sophisticated and balanced postmodern architecture characterized by protrusions and recesses. The onboard itinerary is personalized through a private collection of old print and two contemporary pieces of art (custom made -based on Fossati’s project- by Peter Bellerby &Co.) located in the MD Saloon and in the UD Saloon.
At the forthcoming Monaco Yacht Show, CCN will be presenting 27 m Freedom that is a 27-m fully-custom yacht purchased by fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, who personally designed her in cooperation with his friend and designer Tommaso Spadolini. This is a fast motor yacht featuring a LOA of 27 meters and an aluminium hull and superstructure, capable of reaching a maximum speed of 40 knots thanks to 3 water-jet engines.
Both the exterior profile and the interior layout reflect the strong personality of the Owner, who asked for a yacht enhancing maximum contact with the sea while also ensuring the utmost privacy. The lower deck features 2 guest cabins and comfortable crew quarters, and the fly includes a private area with pilot seat. The tender is stored forward.
Latona 50 m
CRN’s mastery of shipbuilding reaches its utmost expression in the new 50-metre superyacht Latona, which will be presented as a world première at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018 at the end of September. Delivered in May, The Latona has been custom-built to meet the wishes of a highly selective and determined Owner. Drawing inspiration from the ‘Superconero’ of the 1960s, the Latona marks the success of a new joint project between CRN and Zuccon International Project.Indeed, this new yacht’s technical solutions and the slender lines of the hull have been developed by CRN’s Engineering Department, while the craft’s exterior lines were pencilled by design firm Zuccon International Project, who, together with the Shipyard’s Interiors&Design Department also took care of both interiors and exteriors.
With her 50 metres in length, four decks and an underdeck, the Latona stands out for her classical, timeliness profile that further enhances the style and elegance of outdoor areas. The yacht’s interiors are pervaded by a refined Liberty-style mood, a stylish fil rouge that unravels through all guest areas. The streamlined bow and the spacious interior and exterior volumes, in turn, also include some breathtaking areas almost ‘hanging’ over the sea, let the Latona shine in all her endless beauty.
Designed jointly with the Customer, this megayacht has been forged and built to meet her Owner’s request for the utmost customisation, in an effort to achieve pure uniqueness – a uniqueness that is also reflected by the colour chosen for the hull, a stylish shade of turquoise whose intensity varies depending on the sea bottom and the waters in which the yacht is cruising.
Onboard the Latona, guests will find numerous outdoor areas – from the wide Mediterranean-style sundeck to thelounge area at the bow, theoutdoor living areas and theal frescodining area located aft to themagnificent terraces overlooking the sea, all the way to theexclusive tender bay obtained on the lower deck. The latter forms a large open-air lounge integrated with the beach club, featuring a solarium, a fitness area, a hammam and a sea-water indoor pool perfect for children to have fun and also ideal to storethe tender in the yacht’s ‘belly’ during navigation.
The Latona is a yacht endowed with a strong personality, capable of harmoniously combining the elegant style of her exterior lines with highly functional outdoor and indoor areas as well as interiors boasting a truly distinctive design. And it is just in the interiors that the skilful, refined craftsmanship of the Shipyard and its suppliers has reached its peak, thanks to a painstaking study of the Central European style from the 1920s. This mood now pervades all interiors, starting from the floors, which are enriched by unique decorations chosen by the Owner, like the sinuous dark brown embroidery– a leitmotiv that is found across all decks.Depending on the areas of the yacht, this elegant pattern unravels along the floors (both marble and carpeted ones) as well as on the curved handrail of the internal staircase, creating a pleasant contrast with the light-shade wood panelling on the walls.
Custom Line 120’ and Custom Line 42 will be Custom Line’s flagships at the MYS.
Custom Line 120
Custom Line 120’ is the first Custom Line to bear the signature of Francesco Paszkowski Design.This unique yacht reimagines and combines stylistic features and elements of automotive design and residential architecture, adding in-depth research aimed at enhancing forms and volumes through furnishing choices in line with the very latest trends of contemporary living. Of note is the innovative glass door that gives access to the lounge; in addition to the usual slide opening of the two glass panels, it also has a tilting mechanism providing a 45° inclination.
Thanks to this engineering marvel, developed in conjunction with an aeronautic company, guests can enjoy a single liveable space between cockpit and lounge. The particularly generous spaces are a constant in all the areas, as confirmed by the forward and aft garages designed for water toys and tenders. In addition, Custom Line 120’ is the first yacht that makes it possible to directly connect the flybridge to the forward zone by means of the side passageways with access from the monkey bridge as well, creating a single large deck of 100 square metres.
Custom Line Navetta 42
Designed by Studio Zuccon, the new Custom Line’s flagship is the first vessel in the history of the brand to exceed 300 GT. The new Navetta 42 proposes a layout of the completely customisable interior spaces that best showcases the ship’s generous volumes. The result is better organisation of on-board flows, total privacy for the owner and his guests, and great freedom of movement for the captain and crew.
A vast suite on the main deck is available to the owner, while the layout of the lower deck provides 4 vip cabins for guests. The stern area is entirely dedicated to leisure, conceived as a large beach club at sea level, and its entertainment function is enhanced by the new launching and retrieval system for tenders and water toys from the garage that opens from the side into the sea.
After the world debut in Cannes, the new Dreamline 35will be on display at the Monaco Yaht Show. The yacht has been penned by Team for Design’s Enrico Gobbi in partnership with the Dreamline Technical Department and has exceptional performance delivered by the hull developed by Giuseppe Arrabito of Arrabito Naval Architects. With full custom interiors, like all Dreamline Yacht projects, the distinctive features of this boat are the clean, flowing exterior styling and the elegant and spacious interiors, where the sophisticated use of mirrors gives the sensation of even more space.
The 35-meter yacht is a full custom build, like all the units built by the shipyard, meaning that owners can not only choose the decorations and materials, but also alter certain parts of the superstructure to satisfy their desires, needs and habits, whatever they are.
The outdoor areas provide plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxation, as well as a dining area and a swimming pool, while the interior decoration is the result of a carefully selected combination of unique pieces and works of art. The chair and sofa upholstery and the curtains are silk velvet by Armani Casa. The bathroom decor makes extensive use of Portoro, a highly-prized dark-coloured marble, while every setting features a sophisticated combination of refined colour tones and materials.
The owner’s cabin on the main deck, has an automatic door that is hidden inside the structure when open, so that it doesn’t block the side passageway. The big glass door separating the cockpit and lounge opens up to form one big space. The guest night area on the Lower Deck comprises four cabins with en-suite bathrooms, including two VIP cabins amidships. The crew quarters, which occupy the entire forward section of the hull and have been designed to ensure that guests have the utmost privacy, consist of the captain’s cabin with its own bathroom, plus four more beds in two cabins and another bathroom.
UAE-based ENATA Marine, world’s first production foiling yacht, rocked last 2018 Dubai International Boat Show with the world debut of its new FOILER yacht. Now FOILER is ready to wow French Riviera.
Delivering a smooth and exhilarating ride for passengers, FOILER offers a comfortable high- performance driving experience for whoever is at the helm. Its retractable carbon fiber hydrofoils deliver strength, rigidity and lightness, allowing the yacht to fly 1.5 meters above the water for the most exciting and relaxing yachting experience. Foiling technology has been around for a very long time and is used mostly in sail boats and kitesurfing, however Enata has made the first hydrofoil yacht which is easy for anyone to use and very efficient. Foiler has a huge window of efficiency as it starts to foil at 12 knots and is completely out of the water at 17 knots with a maximum speed of 40 knots in flight mode. It is also incredibly easy to use and drive, just like a sports car: you just press a button for the foils to deploy and you can be on your way. Handling waves up to 2.5m to 3m in foiling mode (conditions with 5 to 6 Beaufort), while still providing complete comfort for up to 8 people, the FOILER can retract the foils and be used as a classical boat in more extreme conditions. The shape of the foils – as well – are different than before, thanks to new advancements in technology. New Enata R&D technologies have helped develop a better foil that is both very performing, comfortable, and auto stable.
The foils are fully retractable. With our patented system, the FOILER switches from foiling mode to Archimedean mode in a few seconds. When moored or at the harbour, the foils and electric torpedoes – which propel the boat – are entirely out of the water. That way they stay dry and clean, thereby reducing the maintenance. The hull of the Foiler has also a very elaborate design to provide very smooth take-off and landing phases, even in the waves. Finally, due to the hybrid system and it being above the water, it generates very little noise. Very low engine noise and no noise from the waves hitting the hull. It is extremely quiet. All of this combined means that everyone/everything around you won’t even know you just passed by flying at 40 knots!
51 metre Irisha
Heesen’s51m Irisha, will make her debut at Monaco Yacht Show 2018.
Driven by the owner’s brief which called for a “fairly aggressive and dynamic” yacht, her impressive fighter-jet inspired exteriors and luxurious interiors have been penned by renowned British designers, Harrison Eidsgaard. Undoubtably her most impressive design feature, Irisha’s sporty raised wheelhouse is constructed of 3D curved glass sheets, which are among the largest produced in Europe. Her top is Snow White in colour, while the main deck is a Midnight Blue, the hull features a custom metallic colour Pacific Blue which in sunlight changes from metallic blue to dark olive-green hues.
Family and entertaining are at the centre of this yacht, where wood, soft textiles and textured fabrics result in a cosy and inviting atmosphere. The relaxing interior design features varying shades of light and dark grey (the Owner’s favourite colour) with beige and blue accents.
Among her many remarkable design features, the sky lounge is equipped with a cinema screen and projector for film nights, and served by a wet bar for the ideal socialising hub. The main deck is characterised by a spectacular indoor-outdoor winter garden, with sliding glass doors and features a living area with a generous dining table, seating 14 with an extension to accommodate for 22 guests.
The Owner’s stateroom is characterised by a hand-felted silk bedhead by Dutch artist, Claudy Jongstra, which adorns the headrest and adjacent to the bed is a private French balcony with sliding glass doors. The Owner’s bathroom offers his and hers walk in wardrobe, a central wengé bathtub with onyx and marble throughout. Irisha can also accommodate eight guests on the lower deck in two double suites and two twins, with the option of converting the twins into doubles or into a VIP with seating area thanks to a sliding partition.
There will be two mangusta on display. The Mangusta Fast Displacemente GrandSport 54 El Leon, that is the new flagship; and the new Mangusta Oceano 46 Q95
Mangusta Grand Sport 54
Following on from the Mangusta Oceano in the long-range displacement line, the Mangusta GranSport further enhances our commitment to harnessing the latest technology to provide top performance and transoceanic range. Together with the Mangusta Maxi Open, a global benchmark in the market for fast sports yachts, the two lines complete a range designed to meet the diverse needs of individual Owners. The all-aluminium Mangusta GranSport highlights the brand’s fundamental values by combining cutting-edge technology and engineering with obsessive attention to detail and the distinctive family feeling of other Mangusta models.
During the Cannes boat show, El Leon was awarded the 2018 World Yachts Trophies in the “Best Exterior Design”, 50-82 M category. This prestigious award acknowledges the work of the shipyard which, together with designer Alberto Mancini, has skilfully built a yacht bound to become the new benchmark in the segment of aluminium Fast Displacement Yacht. The Mangusta Gransport 54 perfectly blends performance, long range, style and maximum onboard livability. The Mangusta Gransport 54 can reach a top speed of 30 knots and cross the ocean at cruising speed. With a range of 4,200 nautical miles, she can handle any and all sea conditions in utmost comfort. In short, she offers incredible versatility and a new way of interpreting the sea for owners to enjoy a fully custom-made experience.
Mangusta Oceano 46
Mangusta Oceano 46 “Q95” is the new 3-decks vessel of Overmarine Group that thus reinforces its presence in the Long Range displacement vessels segment. High on-board comfort and balance between indoor and outdoor spaces: the Mangusta Oceano range is marked by an exclusive combination of the brand’s key values, applied to the long range three-decked ships.
The product philosophy is expressed in its great habitability, the ergonomics, and the spaces dedicated to the Owner, to the guests, and to the crew. An ability to surprise that is extended to the technical level, starting from the high range values at various speeds, as well as performance levels in attenuating noise onboard. The design of the outside lines of the new 46-metre vessel was created by Stefano Righini, who maintained and enhanced the contemporary timeless style that characterises Mangusta yachts.
The designer of the interiors, on the other hand, is Alberto Mancini. The extreme attention to detail, the study of materials and the freedom of movement in the utmost privacy are the elements that characterise the style of Mangusta Oceano 46, which can accommodate up to twelve guests in six cabins. A purely custom-made design, in terms of both the layout of the spaces and the furniture and finishes.
After the debut at Cannes, the Mazu 52HT will be on display also in Monaco. The 52HT is built of carbon composite in a lightweight sandwich construction for rigidity and strength.
Offering generous interior volume and deck space, plus an open-sided, carbon composite hardtop for protection from the summer sun, the new model continues the handcrafted, superyacht feel of the Mazu range with enhanced onboard comfort for extended overnight cruising. In addition to the large foredeck, protected cockpit, open aft deck and swim platform, the interior layout provides for two guest cabins with separate bathroom facilities and a spacious dinette/lounge area. Luxuriously soft Foglizzo leathers appear throughout the interior and the restrooms feature 5mm Bianca marble veneers atop a lightweight aluminium substrate. Powered by twin Volvo IPS 800 engines (600hp each), the 52HT will have a top speed of 36 knots and a cruising speed of 32 knots.
Pearl Yachts will unveil once again its brand new flagship – the Pearl 95 that marks its debut into the superyacht market. Designed by Dixon Yacht Design, the new Pearl 95 boasts the same legendary seakeeping capabilities and impressive manoeuvrability as her smaller sister yachts. The 95 takes the sporty ethos embedded in Pearl Yachts culture into a semi-raised pilothouse design, with an innovative and voluminous interior. The superstructure maximises glazing, and introducing sweeping curves in the shearline enhancing the connection with the sea. From the hull design through to the styling, engineering and interior space planning, the Dixon design team has strived to produce a yacht that really stands out from the crowd.
The new Pearl 95 will feature exclusive Kelly Hoppen luxurious interior design. Also the feedback from past and current Pearl Yacht owners has strongly influenced the development of the new 95: the owner’s cabin is located forward on the main deck and features a full beam design maximising space and creating a class leading cabin. The main deck saloon is vast with space for a huge L-shaped sofa and a dining table for eight. On the lower deck there are two double cabins and two twin cabins, all en-suite with owners given the option to specify a breath taking full beam cabin with walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom in place of the two double cabins. The Pearl 95 achieves a top speed of 28 knots and has a cruising range of 380 nautical miles thanks to its 2 x MTU 16V M96 2400hp engines. Caterpillar C32 1925hp and 2 x MTU 16V M96L 2600hp are also available.
Vijonara is the second hull in the Hoek ‘Truly Classic 128’ series. She is a completely customised sailing yacht, optimised for performance, with the addition of a bow sprit that houses the downwind sails.
The highly detailed interiors have been styled with Sapeli mahogany flat panelling, with specialist features and upholstery undertaken by Hermes. This stunningly beautiful classic yacht showcases a unique level of quality and attention to detail in the interior and exterior joinery, making her an exceptional addition to the fleet of bespoke superyachts built by Pendennis in Falmouth, UK.
Riva 110 Dolcevita
It’s the new fiberglass flagship of the fleet and the second-born, following Riva 100’ Corsaro, of the brand’s updated flybridge range. Characterised by a super-sporty profile and a design enhanced by shaped glass windows and chrome-plated inserts, Riva 110’ Dolcevita is a luxurious loft, open to the sea on every side, Riva 110’ Dolcevita offers 270° of absolute visibility and enables the lounge to reach a height of 2.30 metres, thanks to a large stainless steel frame that supports the superstructure, acting as a frame for the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The area is thus free from interruptions, bathed with natural light. In addition to the innovative “spider frame” structure, one of the particular features of this model is the total liveability of the spaces. The exterior areas of the flybridge and bow are interconnected, thus creating an “infinity deck” of approximately 34 m2 of social areas from extreme stern to extreme bow, in a single solution of continuity.
World preview at the Monaco Yacht Show for Rossinavi’s new jewel: the 49,9 m Flying Dagger.
This fully custom designed yacht Flying Dagger on 21st April in Viareggio, Italy. The project has been commissioned by a private client. With exterior by Venice- based Enrico Gobbi of Team for Design, the robust silhouette of this vessel is marked by sporty lines in a fully aluminium structure. The interiors of the vessel have been designed by Rome-based practice Lazzarini Pickering Architetti.
Sports and sleek exterior lines. Lazzarini Pickering Architetti’s interior layout is minimal but with accurate architectural details. The interior design of this project has been realised with the idea of feeling the water from every corner of the boat. MY Flying Dagger is also the latest research development on noise and vibration reduction; even if this is a water jet boat, the noise and sound propagation performance can be compared with a full displacement one.
Both natural and artificial light of the boat have been one of the focus of this design project. MY Flying Dagger is a boat meant to be fast; top speed up to 31 knots and a cruise speed of 24 knots. This boat is incredibly versatile being perfect for long cruise navigations or for shorter trips.
The main salon features three large glass floor to ceiling doors to enjoy the view of the sea but also allowing the space to transform into an al fresco dining area. The master bedroom is also a particular large area of the boat featuring a structural terrace accessible through sliding glass doors.
The shallow draft, the water jet propulsion and the air-conditioned engine room enable this boat to perform at the best in the Caribbean warm water surround.
Four spacious external decks across three floors allow for entertaining, dining and relaxing. Along the main deck, a sprawling sundeck features a metallic and woven metal canopy that opens and closes to provide or protect from light.
There will be four Sanlorenzo Yachts on display at the Monaco Yacht Show. One, the 500 Exp is a World Premiére.
The result of Sanlorenzo’slong, thorough analysis of the Explorer and Expedition Vessel range, more and more popular among shipowners who love sailing independently to faraway places, the line EXP launched in 2015 with 460Exp Moka– a displacement steel hull with a 460-tonne aluminium superstructure in 42,8 metres in length – this year introduces a brand new idea.
Thanks to this model’s success, three items of which have been launched so far, this year Sanlorenzo has decided to enlarge its collection with500Exp, a new astonishing yacht that will be officially presented at Monaco Yacht Show 2018from 26 to 29September, and stands out for its amazing aesthetic, living, sailing qualitiesand especially for its ability to host a helicopter.
With its extended stern area, longer than 460Exp, 500Exp measures 47 metres in length and 9,60 metres in width, andmaintains the style and volume of the advanced superstructure toward the bow, which conveys the Explorer Sanlorenzo range so much personality, highlighting the shipyard’s well-known extreme care for aestheticsthrough its stylish, timeless outline.
The first model 500Exp, Ocean Dreamwalker III,was launched during Sanlorenzo’s Elite Days, which took place last May at Sanlorenzo Superyacht‘s site in La Spezia on the occasion of the company’s 60thanniversary.
SL 52 Steel
The Sanlorenzo 52Steel, wraps five-decks of timelessly elegant exterior lines drawn in collaboration with Officina Italiana Design. Examples of Sanlorenzo Superyacht’s dedication to maintaining the brand’s reputation for refined features, elegance and technical innovation abound–with the latter immediately evident from the moment one steps off the dock and boards the 52 Steel at the stern.
Through the louvered transom plate the first teasing glimpse of the yacht’s tender is caught, while lateral shell doors to port and starboard hint at the transformative nature of this area. After the transom plate is raised, the garage is flooded and the tender slips gracefully out. Meanwhile, the lateral terraces are opened and a section smoothly lowers down from overhead– not only completing the floor of a vast teak-soled Beach Club, but also revealing the transparent bottom of the swimming pool above. While occupants of the pool bathe luxuriantly in the cockpit, the Beach Club and fully customized full-beam gymnasium below are bathed in a mesmerizing natural light, projected by the sun’s rays shifting playfully through the water. This dramatic conversion of the flooding tender garage into a prime waterfront salon was made possible by the extraordinary expertise of the Sanlorenzo Superyacht Technical Department.
40Alloy, the natural evolution over 118 ft of the Sanlorenzo range of fibreglass motoryachts, was the first fast displacement Superyacht in metal to be launched by Sanlorenzo, characterized by a semi-planing hull.
Sanlorenzo has entrusted the layout to Francesco Paszkowski, who conceived a completely innovative project, while maintaining the style of Sanlorenzo.
This iconic model is in a class of its own, sporting elegant and timeless flowing lines and introducing innovative features such as the exclusive fold-down terraces in the main salon and Owner’s suite which open out onto the sea, and the gull-wing doors usually seen on sports cars.
460Exp(460 gross tons and 42 meters in length) has a displacement hull in steel and an aluminum superstructure characterized by Sanlorenzo’s unmistakable lines that makes the range of models always recognizable and inspired by big exploration vessels capable of reaching out of the ordinary and far flung destinations.
Spaciousness on board, safety, and self-sufficiency are the three factors that take the 460Exp beyond the usual limits associated with yachting, to bring the real meaning of adventure back to her owner: the exploration of far-off and beautiful destinations, with all the usual safety and comfort associated with a superyacht that combines the experience, craftsmanship and innovation of Sanlorenzo.
Great attention is paid to the environment and its conservation: the yacht has received two classification by the RINA: the Comfort Class classification (due to low sound levels and minimized acoustic vibrations (Acoustic Privacy) and the Green Plus classification as a result of technical characteristics and features which make the yacht “eco-friendly”. Her level of self-sufficiency and her cruising stability are higher than any other motoryacht of this size, but, with a limited draught, 460Expis also able to sail along the coast with low fuel consumption. In addition, her’s length allows it to be both more agile and more maneuverable, in turn allowing quick access to confined harbours, ports and docks.
Southern Wind Shipyard
On display at the Monaco YAcht Show there will be Seatius, the brand new SW96 that splashed in March of this year. The pens behind the SW96 miniseries are old Southern Wind friends: Farr Yacht Design did the naval architecture while the general concept was crafted by the yard, Farr Design and Nauta Design which also styled the exterior and interiors.
That mix of talents attracted Seatius’ owner who, before giving the go-ahead for his Southern Wind, visited the yard in Cape Town several times to really get to grips with its construction techniques and philosophy. He also did his sailing homework, cruising and racing various SW yachts extensively in both the Mediterranean and Caribbean. As soon as he saw the drawings for the Southern Wind 96, he was won over,” says Jim Shmicker, vice president of Farr Yacht Design.
“Swan 115.004 is the crowning achievement of Nautor’s Swan. Three years in the making the engineers and boatbuilders have created a masterpiece.
She is the most technology advanced boat ever built at Nautor. Her hull construction, sailing systems, mast and keel allow her to be a world class racing superyacht and compete on the world stage.
The interior is completed to the highest yacht standards and allows for worldwide cruising.” Declared Enrico Chieffi, Vice President of Nautor’s Swan. The only way to discover if he is truth is to visit it in Monaco!
72 metre Solo
Designed by Francesco Paszkowski – Solo will make her international debut at the 2018 Monaco Yacht Show from the 26thto the 29thof September. According to Tankoa’s CEO, Euro Contenti – this is a true recognition of the shipyard core values and power that irrevocably consists in building yachts with clients, not for clients.
Although reminiscent of 69-meter Suerte (project S693),Solo is 3 meters longer and has a volume of approximately 1,600 Gross Registered Tons. Other key differences include catalytic underwater exhausts allowing for substantial gains of volume on all decks, smell free and smoke free outdoor decks; a larger winter garden; larger aft deck with 6-meter transversal glass pool, cut-down glass bulwarks sections for unobstructed sea views and a wide body upper deck allowing for an oversized panoramic salon. The longer waterline also allows for an optimized top speed in excess of 17 knots and reduced fuel consumption.

This exterior deck is also equipped with its own Jacuzzi, bar, salon, breakfast corner and day head with shower. A stairwell leads to the sun deck, with its shower hidden into the mast, saloon and generous sun pads.

The under lower deck is devoted to laundry room, pump room, storage, additional fridge and freezer, garbage treatment plant, technical spaces and direct access to the magnificent split-level engine room.
Constructed entirely in aluminum, the elegant profile of the WIDER 165 was created by the in-house WIDER design team in collaboration with Italprojects by Fulvio De Simoni and the naval architect Sydac by Lelio Falletta. The interior layout, designed by IdeaeItalia in conjunction with the owner’s architect, is packed with more stand out features including a generous study with terrace on the port side, private gym with terrace on the starboard side, a sauna room as well as a spacious and light owner’s cabin and ensuite bathroom.
The stand out feature across the WIDER range is the inclusion of a generous Beach Club: the WIDER 165 has taken this a step further to allow extra space which can be customized to suit a client’s needs – options available for submarine storage, dive room or sauna/spa.
The beating heart of the WIDER 165’ project is its serial hybrid propulsion system combined with a 544kWh Lithium polymer battery bank and Azimuthal pods, which guarantees hugely reduced fuel consumption and exceptionally low levels of noise and vibration.
Four inline variable speed diesel generators, controlled by the state-of-the-art WIDER power management system and the latest battery technology, serve the hotel and propulsion requirements of the vessel. The traditional engine room has been replaced by a Power Generator Room, located in the bow. This leaves the mid ship of the vessel free for larger, more comfortable guest cabins located in the most stable part of the yacht.
