Project: Sanlorenzo SL96 Asymetric

Sanlorenzo present the project for the SL96 Asymmetric with exteriors and layout designed by Bernardo Zuccon, and interiors by Laura Sessa. The design consolidates the direction taken in 2018 with the presentation of the SL102 Asymmetric, which the company calls the world’s first asymmetrical yacht, and showcases Sanlorenzo's ability to work with the concept of space, reinterpreting it from alternative perspectives and exploring different ways to exploit it. SL96 Asymmetric is born of this approach, with a side deck on the starboard side, but not the port, because it has been moved up to the roof of the superstructure in order to free up a large surface area for the interiors and offer more space, light, relaxation and flexibility of use.  The concept of asymmetry springs from a meeting of different minds and creative approaches. Car designer Chris Bangle’s brilliant original idea has been developed by Bernardo Zuccon with the shipyard’s engineers and designers.  Possibly in this kind of design of present modern Italian motor yacht the SL102 Asymmetric is the first of its kind, but certainly this concept has been used in the past by other American and Asian build motor yachts.  Still Sanlorenzo gives it a new spin thanks to a lower bulkhead which increases light and views to the dining area.

New Model: Baglietto 55m T-Line

Baglietto, a historic and legendary Italian name with 160 years building luxury superyachts, has launched its new 55-meter motor yacht named Severin's on Saturday, July 6, at it's shipyard in La Spezia at the presence of her happy owner, his family and friends, the yacht crew and the owner representative from the Edmiston team.  Known as hull no.10225, M/Y Severin's was showcased for the first time in the warm light of a golden sunset on the Gulf of Poet at the presence of many guests, civil and military authorities, international media, CEOs and business executives, as well as the team who was part of the construction and their respective families.  After the flag-raising ceremony, Italian singer, performer and X Factor finalist, Aba Chiara, sang the Italian national anthem and Michele Gavino, CEO of Baglietto, gave a welcome speech on behalf of the shipyard. The launch M/Y Severin°s followed the traditional baptism ritual of the sea, with the christening of the yacht and the Champaign bottle crash.  This new 55-meter hull is part of Baglietto’s traditional platform designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design.  The vessel’s soft and sleek lines reflect Baglietto’s traditional Italian style and, together with the lowered gunwales and side air vents, will embody the Seagull brand’s distinct aesthetic features. Francesco Paszkowski designed the warm and cozy interior in collaboration with architect Margherita Casprini.  The layout, which is set up perfectly for charter with a total of six cabins, was developed through the wonderful cooperation between the client, Baglietto and Francesco Paszkowski Design.  The main deck is dedicated to the family. It has a vast master suite with a central bed, a secluded office, and a walk-in closet. Two guest cabins for the family members are located on the same deck as well. The central lobby hosts a panoramic lift in marble which connects the three decks. The main saloon aft at the entrance offers an in-and-out area with an elegant space enclosed by a glass window that can be completely opened. The dining area has a central round table which completes the main deck layout.  On the lower deck, there are two additional guest cabins, with the crew area next to the professional galley. The crew’s quarters include a crew mess room and six crew cabins all with ensuite heads. The captain’s cabin is on the upper deck next to the modern wheelhouse, which has an integrated system provided by Telemar.  One more guest cabin is located on the upper deck, which has a multi-functional space furnished with a sofa and two Pullman beds. This area can easily become a playroom, or a massage room as required. The interior layout is complete with a living room, conversation area, and a gaming table. Outside, always on the upper deck, you can find a dining table for ten with a bar and relax area located aft.  The sun deck, a Baglietto trademark, is astonishing: 150 square meters of al fresco space entirely devoted to gatherings and outdoor activities. The stern offers a vast sunbathing area with freestanding sunbeds, while a relax area is located under the shadows of the roll bar. The two pop-up tables can transform this space into a cozy dining spot. There is also a swimming pool and bar on this deck.  The placement of the tender and toys in the fore-deck allows more space to be dedicated to the Beach Club, which has double access. The Beach Club offers 55 square meters of space to relax with a steam shower, bar, and an additional area perfect for a gym and spa. The Beach Club faces the sea, ideal for those tranquil moments on the water.  The yacht is certified with the maximum class by Lloyd’s Register of Shipping and has received two Caterpillar engines 2719hp push her at a maximum speed of 17 knots and cruising speed of 12 knots.  M/Y Severin's, hull no. 10225, is an example of Baglietto’s flexibility and full use of its T-Line production.  Baglietto is recognized all over the world for its Italian design and craftsmanship, as well as its cutting-edge technology and performance. It relies on a state-of-the-art, entirely renovated shipyard, capable of ensuring an average production rate of three to four yachts per year. To date, there are four super yachts under construction at Baglietto’s modern La Spezia shipyard: a 43-meter HT Fast Line; a 54-meter, a 40-meter, and a 48-meter T-Line, three of which set to be delivered in 2020.

Project: Canados 919 Gladiator RD

Open is back?  Or so many would say since the news of this new Canados 919 Gladiator RD project and order follows the launch of the new Otam 85 GTS.  Let's say the interest is growing, in a size upward of 25 meters, something which they always have suffered with the exception of the Mangusta 80 which sold in loads onward of 1994 till about 2007 when then Overmarine modified it to the hardtop style of the other models.  Canados has in recent years build a name in the super sport yacht today called the Gladiator range, thanks to a fast and very performing 90 Open it launched around ten years ago.  Before that Cantieri Navali di Ostia was been famous mostly for its conservative looking flybridge motor and super yachts upward of fifteen meters.  The 919 Gladiator RD is the continuation of the 90 Open and brings a lot of innovative thinking in its deck design used from fore to aft as never seen in this size, bringing to a certain extent ideas and philosophies more akin to the large center console currently invading the North American market.  Moving around the Canados 919 Gladiator RD will be safe thanks to the full walk around bulwarks, and the center console influence brings  fresh design thinking in this size.  The interior of the 919 Gladiator will be offered in a fully custom choice of three or four cabins layout, with a separate galley and two crew cabins for three or four persons.  Performance wise Canados is keen to point out that the 919 Gladiator RD will be the fastest super sport yacht in its size reaching top speeds up to 52 knots, and cruise comfortably at 44 knots with the large powerful option of triple Man 2000hp engines and surface drive propulsion combination.  Still for those wanting to go slower the Canados 919 Galdiator RD is offered in twin engine installations with surface drives or more conservative and slower line shaft propulsion.

Project: Solaris Power Lobster 48 Hard-Top

Project: Cayman F520

Cayman yachts continues its philosophy of bringing a new model each year, and for 2019 it will present the new F520 at the upcoming September 2019 Cannes boat show.  Designed by Ferragni who is the design firm responsible for the incredible work they did on Cayman's new 2018 model F920 flagship.  For the second Cayman model the Cremona Lombardy design firm went for more conservative looks outside, looking at certain angles to be a motor yacht from a decade ago.  The upright flybridge design and low radar arch also reminds me to a certain extent of the Cayman 50 Fly launched in 2007.  But the new Cayman F520 is not all nostalgia and here we have some modern touches from the IPS pod propulsion, to the forward bench settee on the fore deck, and large hull side windows.

Wim Van Der Valk is delighted to announce the successful launch of the 32-metre Raised Pilothouse named M/Y Jangada 2. Built for a repeat client of a Wim Van der Valk and a Raised Pilothouse the 24 model, this super yacht is the fifth and at 32 meter the largest to date in the Dutch builder custom aluminium build Raised Pilothouse line.  32M is now being put though her final paces, after which she will head to the Mediterranean for the 2019 summer of cruising along the French Riviera.  The owners of 32M Raised Pilothouse made the most of all their experiences on their first 24.99M Raised Pilothouse to have their new yacht even more customized to their requirements. Working in close partnership with Nick Top and Guido de Groot, they designed some very specific details, ensuring that the VIP suite bathroom on the main deck closes off for use by guests during the day, adding to the crew accommodations and creating an even more spacious galley by optimizing the functional area under the pilothouse.  This kind of smart thinking typifies the genuinely bespoke nature of a yacht that reinforces why our Raised Pilothouse line has been such a hit. And there are many more ways in which Jangada 2 makes a clear statement of her own. She has a minimalist interior style that is based primarily on whitewashed European oak. The flybridge deck has an outdoor dining area, a sunbathing space with plenty of loose sunbeds, an all-aluminium hardtop providing ample shade and a smart wet bar.  The main deck aft is spacious with curved glass sliding doors to the lounge, while a VIP suite forward offers fine views.

Project: Nordhavn N41

Nordhavn is pleased to announce its newest passage making cruiser, the N41, destined to become it's  next legendary vessel.  With over seven million nautical miles of documented ocean crossings, Nordhavn has set important long cruising records. Last year Nordhavn retired the venerable 40, it's smallest passage-maker explorer cruiser and a record-setter in her own right.

Her profile is deliberately low providing a stable and comfortable ride, and her hull design, having undergone an advanced and rigorous analysis, is CE Certified Category A Ocean for offshore conditions. This means the average cruising duo can take on any itinerary with confidence whether crossing to the South Pacific or exploring around the Pacific Northwest.  Comfort and maneuverability is the name of the game on-board. The Nordhavn 41 is available with a single luxurious owners cabin or with two cabins, second guest cabin located to starboard with two L-shaped berths.  The Nordhavn N41 will be powered by twin Kibota 75hp with line shaft propulsion, while a huge 3400 liters fuel capacity will be make her able to do most ocean crossing.  Debut is scheduled for January 2020 during Dusseldorf boat show.
