New Model: Baltic M78

Baltic launch the M78 a fuly custom 23 meter semi-planing explorer yacht designed by German Mani Frers and conceived for offshore cruising, combining stunning interior and exterior styling with highly sophisticated hull design which should provide her owners with a comfortable ride at sea and a luxurious living platform at rest.  Mani Frers naval architecture, in the Baltic M78 makes the interesting observation that the speed achieved by large sailing yachts now matches those of motor yachts, much can be learned from the two disciplines to produce highly efficient hull forms.  Frers has also studied recent commercial ship research, which aims to make vessels as efficient as possible. This has led to the motion of the M78 less aggressive, which in turn has the unexpected effect of reducing motion sickness. M78 stability is further enhanced by two Seakeeper gyro stabilizers, all this, linked with the light, stiff hull and deck shell result in an outstanding yacht.  Baltic M78 narrow beam is fundamental to the yacht’s easily driven and sea-kindly hull. She’s powered by twin Volvo diesels 625hp driving through IPS dual propeller pod drives for further efficiency.  A lot has been worked into her accommodation including a stern garage for a tender and a well-equipped galley featuring a dumb waiter leading to the deck saloon. The yacht features striking photographic studies and specialist stucco paneling putting it in a class of her own.  Key features on M78 deck include a remarkable reflective glass deck superstructure housing the wheelhouse and deck saloon, deep bulwarks providing great protection and an all-round walkway and custom stainless steel work including unique 3D printed stainless steel push-pit and pulpit design which enhances the yacht’s contemporary look.  M78 is an advanced explorer yacht which will set the standard for further projects in this field from Baltic Yachts.

Project: Benetti Diamond 145

Benetti present the Diamond 145 project, a 44-meter displacement super yacht that draws on the core features of the Displacement Class line history.  Expert owners will be struck by a yacht that can be an integral part of their finest moments with unparalleled style, comfort and safety.  The elegant design suggests the proportions and details that convey a feeling of sturdiness and power. The discreet but tangible sense of refinement will strike a chord with owners who love to combine glamour with credible practicality.  The seamless design of the huge glazed surfaces accentuates the length of the yacht and its brightly-lit interiors. The exterior styling, which stands out for its remarkable continuity of lines and surfaces, is the work of Giorgio M. Cassetta.  The interior design by Achille Salvagni is based on roomy, welcoming settings, where the choice of light color shades underscores the wealth of natural light. Access to the main deck is by two wide stairways in the stern, which are also one of the yacht’s architectural highlights. The main cockpit welcomes guests in a wide and bright setting, and leads seamlessly to the immense, fully glazed main lounge. The full-beam master cabin in the bow has a roomy wardrobe, a full-beam bathroom and a study or office. The galley and service areas are laid out to make best use of the space available, in such a way as to provide high level service on board, without encroaching on guests’ privacy.  The upper deck features a big outdoor area in the stern with access to the lounge, which is dominated by extensive glazed surfaces that cover 80% of the perimeter. The extremely spacious piloting area is positioned next to the captain’s cabin for perfect visibility. The bow area covers seventy square meters and features a remarkable custom spa pool.  The sun deck, over 115 square meters of outdoor space and can be furnished according to the owner’s tastes. All life rafts and all functional features are hidden or integrated in the design to avoid contaminating the purity of the yacht’s contours.  The night area for guests is on the lower deck and is made up of four double cabins, with the option of a fifth on the upper deck. The crew quarters and laundry are fit in the bow area.  The beach area and beach club can be fully customised and can be enjoyed both at sea and at anchor. The two 1400hp Man engines will drive the Benetti Diamond 145 to a top speed of 15 knots and at a cruise of eleven knots the super yacht will have a range of 3,800 nautical miles.

Improve-it = Rizzardi 48 In

Just about a year ago Rizzardi sent us a press release for improvements to its 48 In model for the 2018 model year, mostly concerning new engine choices up to 1000hp.  Come the fall of 2018 Rizzardi sent a new press release which aims to make the 48 In more accessible for 2019 and beyond with the addition of a smaller twin Cat 650hp engines and Top System surface drives choice, and new lower deck layouts.  This new smaller Cat engine propulsion will deliver better nautical mile per liter numbers and yet take nothing away from performance with speeds up to 42 knots and a cruise of 36.  The Rizzardi 48 In has also been added with new versions for the lower deck layout, with the addition of a VIP midships cabin and a single berth to starboard layout being available in addition to the standard double twin cabins at midships.  Another new layout for 48 In will also feature larger shower heads to port side, galley moved to starboard, and no lower deck saloon.  But the guest shower head in the standard version has also been improved in space now featuring a separate shower.  A total of five lower deck choices are available now for the Rizzardi 48 In, and these options are added with new different furnishing options featuring a softer trim.  With all these new options, three engine choice from 650hp to 1000hp, and five lower deck layouts the Rizzardi 48 In presents itself as a pure semi-custom sport cruiser in a size of just fourteen meters.  Launched in 2016 the Corrado Rizzardi designed 48 In continues to move forward in the future, a model which is an evolution of the 2004 launched 45 Incredible sold in over eighty units in a production run of eight years.
