The 2020 Düsseldorf Boat Show will provide the setting for the world debut of the new Tecnorib Pirelli 42, which was presented as a scale model a few months ago against the exclusive backdrop offered by Portofino.

Project: Raffaelli 21,30 mt HT

Raffaelli present the project for a seventy feet plus hard top sport yacht.  This sport yacht is based on the Ontera 70 hull, and presents a completely redesigned upper structure.  The lower deck of the Raffaelli hard top offers four double cabins including a separate entry master cabin at midship.  Another particular difference in the guest accommodation for a yacht this size is the VIP cabin also located at midship, but further forward to the owners cabin.  Crew accommodation is for two in a forward cabin.  All the living and dining is located on the main deck, with a traditional Italian separate galley in standard layout located behind the helm station to starboard.  Power for the Raffaelli is by twin 1150hp MTU with line shaft propulsion.  No performance numbers are communicated but I would expect similar thirty knots performance of the Ontera flybridge model.

Today, the Extra range comprises the following models: 76, 86, 86 Fast, 93, 120 Alloy and 130 Alloy.  Isa Extra owners are always looking for strong emotions to live in full contact with the sea, both during navigation and at anchor.

Project: Tankoa S702

In the wake of the success of the 69.3m Suerte and the 72m Solo, Tankoa has developed together with Francesco Paszkowski a new S702 seventy meter project with bold and captivating lines characterized by a vertical bow stem.  In addition to the vertical bow, the exterior design of the Next 70 S702 is defined by the arcs that connect and unite all the deck left in the stern to provide a sense of balance and continuity.  Three different superstructure profiles can be integrated into the exterior styling to offer owners a wide choice of design.  A series of design details from the stern fairleads and half-moon shapes to the black chine in the bow and the black V-pattern on the hard top, reflect Tankoa’s design philosophy.  The vertical bow also recalls the 50-metre projects launched by the yard and will be carried forward into future designs. The vertical forward glazing contrasts powerfully with the gentle S-shaped bend of the arcs in the stern.  One of the salient features of this project is the interior layout, especially the forward area that is arranged on two connected levels between the main and upper decks.  The master suite is spread over the main deck and upper deck for a total area of about 150 sqm with side terraces and a private gym. It is directly connected to the fore-deck and helipad via ​​the upper deck and an internal private staircase. A skylight brings light into this passage that opens up into a large space comprising a panoramic lounge and dining area/meeting room.  Like residential seaside homes, the side bulwarks on the upper deck are glazed to provide transparency and uninterrupted sea views. In fact, all the external areas are designed as terraces overlooking the sea with plentiful use of frameless glass to increase visual contact with the marine environment.  On the foredeck of the upper deck in front of the owner’s area is large alfresco zone with a pool. The stern a dining and relaxation area with softly rounded sofas and seating.  There is another larger swimming pool on the main aft deck, above the transom beach club on the lower deck with spa area that includes a sauna and hammam.  In line with the unconventional layout configuration, there is no classic sky lounge on the upper deck. In its place are two VIP suites aft of the central lobby.  Other guest accommodation includes two additional VIP suites on the main deck aft and two ensuite cabins on the lower deck, where there is also a gym for guest use. This arrangement provides maximum flexibility, especially for charter use.  The second lounge area on board, instead of being on the upper deck, has been transposed to the bridge deck that opens onto a convivial area on the aft deck with circular sofas.  The sun deck hosts a large area with sun beds and a shower integrated into the mast structure that can be reached by the main staircase that connects all the decks.  A nine meter limousine tender and a 5.5m guest tender are stored in the stern garage. A crew tender, rescue tender and Jet Skis are housed under the helipad in the bow.  Last but not least, the lighting system has been carefully integrated into the overall design concept, a solution evident in the play of overhead LED lights in the outdoor conversation and dining area on the main and upper decks.   The Tankoa S702 is to be powered by twin 2447hp engines which will allow her to reach top speeds up to seventeen knots, cruise at sixteen, and have an economic long speed of twelve knots.

A project by Valerio Rivellini as the 43 / R4 model, the R6 as all Evo Yachts takes a minimal look approach, and adds to it that of transformation.  This is sport yachting in the future and thanks to opening bulk heads for example the stern area can increase in beam from five to over seven meters.  Inside the Evo R6 can feature a two or three cabins layout with a crew cabin.  The owners cabin is lcoated full beam at midships, while the forward cabin is a VIP double for guests.  The Evo R6 is standard powered with Volvo 625hp, with larger 725hp options.  The large engine choice allows for speeds up to 36/38 knots with a 28 knots cruise.

Project: Sirena 58 Coupe

Sirena Yachts is proud to announce an all-new addition to the fleet, the 58 Coupé. The Coupé version augments the existing 58 lineup by providing a vessel with distinct characteristics, such as a lower air-draft, a unified interior space on the main deck, and a light and airy interior.  The 58 Coupé is the direct result of Sirena’s response to U.S. customers who have expressed a preference for an “express” style yacht. Sirena’s existing 58 is already the most successful yacht in the builder’s portfolio.  The hull and superstructure design is from Germán Frers and features a contemporary plumb-bow design, modest free board, and a fast-displacement hull that provides for substantial vessel range, exceeding 850 nautical miles at ten knots speeds, while still capable of top speeds in excess of 26 knots.  With the 58 Coupé, Sirena wanted to unify the natural division between the aft deck and the salon and pilothouse bulkhead.  The galley itself benefits from the extra square footage in the form of additional counter top prep space and additional under-cabinet refrigerator and freezer.  With a clever four-panel door that opens almost entirely, the space from the main deck helm through to the transom is open and at a single level. A shaded aft deck, by virtue of an overhang as well as an optional electrically-controlled sunshade, makes inside-out living the true benefit in this new design.
