New Model: Galeon 560 Fly

During the 2023 Miami boat show Galeon presented the World premier for the 560 Fly model.  A seventeen meters flybridge motor yacht, the 560 Fly is designed by British Tony Castro, Galeon's main designer for the last twenty or so years.  The 560 Fly replaces the 550 after ten years of production into that highly competitive segment of the market, especially in between European builders.  As is usual to Galeon the 560 Fly comes as a unique offer, and although its not a novelty as it was once, Galeon opening side bulkheads as presented on the 500 Fly in 2015 are still unique, especially if onboard entertaining with friends is ones priority. These drop down bulkheads apart expanding beam by two meters are unique and with the opening sliding glazed surfaces in the galley and the other side, they join the inside with outside in a unique manner which surprisingly has not yet been copied in the market today.  The Galeon 560 Fly also features some hard to find features in its size, like the side door by the helm station to starboard and the single peace forward windshield serving the lower helm.  The 560 Fly is part of what Galeon calls its fourth generation series which debuted with the 640 Fly in 2018 and to the swing extendable bulkheads adds more glazed surfaces, the Heptagon bow which increases space below moving beam further forward and on deck. The Galeon 560 Fly is standard powered by twin Volvo 725hp with line shafts propulsion and an option for twin 900hp units available.  Top speed is up to 29 knots with the standard power.

Project: Tankoa TX450

Tankoa Yachts is proud to announce that the first unit of the all-new TX450 has been sold. Initially developed around the Tankoa T450 concept penned by Giorgio Cassetta, the TX450 is an explorer version based on the same 45-metre design, but developed into a full-custom project from bottom up. As Cassetta is responsible for both the elegant exterior and refined interior design, the yacht’s clean lines and graceful profile is unmistakably in line with Tankoa’s design DNA and, indeed, very close to the original T450. The TX450 is developed on four decks with a unique interior arrangement for a yacht of her size whereby all the guest cabins are placed on the main deck, including a generous master stateroom for the owners’ use. The social areas are mainly focused on the upper deck and bridge decks. The interior also offers a gym, spa area and a convertible room, which brings the number of the guest cabins up to six if required. There are exterior social areas on all decks, including two pools, one of which is at sea level in the stern surrounded by two opening side platforms, as well as a beach club area effectively developed on three levels when the tender and jet skies are launched, offering an incomparable lounge space for the size of the yacht. The yacht is under final engineering with construction due to start shortly and delivery set for spring 2025. Tankoa currently has eight other projects currently in build: two S501s, two T450s, two T55 Sportiva, a T580 Custom and the Vitruvius 52.  This RX450 takes Tankoa yachts to fourteen units, eight of which currently under construction with the Italian shipyard debuting in 2015 with the fully custom 69m.

Project: Garlington 48 Flybridge

Garlington is currently building this new 48 Flybridge model.  A new entry level flybridge model, the 48 is based on the lines of the current smallest flybridge offer the 61, and possibly share hull lines with the 49 Express.  The Garlington 48 Flybridge will offer an interior with two guest cabins; a master cabin forward, and guest room with two bunk berths to port side, with a shower head located to starboard.  The living and dining is located as all and or most sport-fisherman on the main deck, with dinette to port side on entrance, with an L-shaped galley behind.  Unlike its bigger sister the Garlington 48 Flybridge will have a central entrance passage way with two mezzanines looking to the action on the aft deck.  No power or performance data is yet mentioned though as most Garlington's expect a forty knots plus performance.  Garlington has been on a roll in recent months, having received a few orders of its current 71 flagship which it splashed in 2021, with a new flagship also reported on the works.  Watch this spot for information on the new flagship.

Project: Numarine 40MXP

Numarine’s popular and successful range of stylish, spacious and highly capable superyachts prove that access-all-areas yachting is no longer the preserve of ever-longer hulls. Its current fleet, which stretches from the talented 22XP to the chiselled 45XP flagship, is quickly becoming a global benchmark in the highly competitive twenty to 45-metre bracket, but rather than rest on its laurels the shipyard is continuing to innovate, enters the 40MXP project. Preserving the same style cues and DNA of her siblings, the new 39-metre 40MXP retains Numarine’s high-volume, low-hassle, long-range ethos while offering several new design features that open up new opportunities to enjoy the intimate connection with the sea that a yacht confers. It’s a recipe that has made its mark even before the new model has been officially added to the menu; two 40MXPs have already been sold, with delivery expected in 2025. The ‘MXP’ stands for Mediterranean Explorer, but the reference is not suggestive of a cruising limitation of the design, rather it reflects the beach-club lifestyle typical of Med yachts. As an evolution of and at two metres longer than the 37XP, the new 40MXP draws on the Med lifestyle idea and delivers it in several exciting ways. First, the aft deck has been enlarged both as a result of the extra length and also by moving the aft sliding doors to the saloon forward by three metres. The result is an area with space for a large alfresco dining area, a bar, and a lounge area surrounding another new feature an aft pool complete with glass transom. This spectacular new social hub extends down to a huge hydraulic swim platform that stretches across the yacht’s eight metre beam. This oasis of outdoor living can be shaded with an awning to keep the extremes of the sun at bay or, with the option of short standard or long optional upper deck extensions, can also benefit from the upper deck overhang for more permanent shade in climates such as the Middle East or Australia. While the ‘M’ part of the 40MXP offers the glamour of beach life, the XP explorer part is as alive as ever, with the 40MXP achieving an impressive six thousand nautical-mile range at eight knots thanks to the optimised hull form developed by long-standing Numarine naval architecture partner Umberto Tagliavini. Standard propulsion comes from a pair of MAN 800hp engines, although there is the option to upgrade to a Tier III-compliant twin MAN 900hp installation. The first two sold units will both have the 900hp MAN upgrades. The interior offers Numarine’s trademark space and luxury, with six suites for up to twelve guests that include a full-beam main deck master and an impressive full-beam lower deck VIP. The interior design, as the 40MXP’s exterior lines once again come from Can Yalman. The 40MXP offers everything, from expansive flybridge to generous upper deck and inviting main deck that has made the 37XP a much-coveted and commercially successful model.

Project: Magazzu M16

Magazzu have leaked information of a new M16 currently in build.  Designed by Claudio Magazzu the M16 is to be the second largest Magazzu build to date, following the MX-18 Coupe which apparently has been so far delivered in only one unit.  The new M16 seems also to be a new M-range, which is a departure from the long standing MX range.  The M16 is a walk around design with a central console, and a hard-top which covers a third of the deck. A construction detail will be the rigid tubes and the cut-out in the bulk heads which give side views and an environmental contact.  A central helm station will feature a wet-bar behind, with a dinette aft, and a central sun-pad.  To foredeck is another sun-pad with two opposite settees further forward.  The interior is reported to offer a two cabins layout, both with en-suite shower head, and a saloon in between the cabins.  The Magazzu M16 will also offer a novelty in its power solution and is to be powered by twin Volvo 600hp with IPS pod drives.

Project: Boston Boatworks 52 Offshore Express Cruiser

Twenty-seven years after Boston Boatworks launched its first high-performance, technology-forward racing sailboat, the company announces the development of the 52 Offshore Express Cruiser. As exciting as this project is for the entire team, the genesis of the yacht stays true to the company’s original objectives of integrating composite engineering, high-strength construction, and artisanal workmanship, scaled to limited-production efficiencies.  For the BB52, the builder partnered with venerable yacht designer Doug Zurn and renowned interior design firm Winch Design. While the industry has long known Boston Boatworks for their construction expertise, building over 350 advanced composite performance yachts, including MJMs and grand-prix racing sailboats, as well as expedition tenders and Coast Guard Certified passenger vessels this will be the company’s first model that fully represents their vision and passion for providing owner-operator high-quality offshore yacht under its own name. The seventeen meter express cruiser takes advantage of Boston Boatworks efficiencies as a limited-run manufacturer of series yachts, softening the lines between a production boat and a semi-custom project with prospective owners able to choose from several selections of interior configurations and finishes developed by Winch Design that cater to a wide range of functions, all of which incorporate a multitude of elegant and clever features to enhance the time on board.  The 52 Offshore Express Cruiser also continues the long-standing collaboration between Boston Boatworks and Doug Zurn.  The BB52 is for owners who appreciate a relentless pursuit of quality and those who understand why the entire build needs to be strong to be safe; who recognize that lighter-weight interiors yield spatial and fuel efficiencies; who demand that the boat’s handling be intuitive; and who take pride in the athletic look of their yacht and the gracefulness of its interior. The Boston Boatworks 52 Offshore Express Cruiser will offer an interior with a one or two cabins two head layout choice, with another option coming to have a galley up or down on the lower deck.  The Boston Boatworks 52 Offshore Express Cruiser is to be powered by triple Volvo 440hp and surprisingly for its size will use stern drive propulsion which will give an estimated top speed up to forty knots.

Improve-it = Tornado 38

In the fall of 2022 Tornado launched its latest improved 38 model.  This latest Tornado 38 is powered by twin FPT 450hp with line shaft propulsion.  Other shown improvements to the 38 where the new glazed windows on the hull side which replaced the traditional port hole windows.  An iconic model the 38 was launched by Tornado in 1985, inspired not little from the Magnum 38 from the sixties and seventies and produced in over five hundred units over the years in four variants; Classic/Sport, Flush Deck, Sedan, and the Cruising version.  The popular first two versions signified a different cockpit layout, with the Sedan launched in mid nineties being the rare hardtop version, and the Cruising from 2010 offering a more spacious lower deck and a revised cockpit layout.  A T-Tender 38 project presented in 2018 never materialized.  Today the Tornado 38 is simply called by its size with the model being similar in layout and cockpit to the Flush Deck version.  A Tornado 38 with shafts is not completely new, as the Italian builder build a few of these on order back in the eighties and nineties.  Going into its fiftieth birthday in 2025, it will be interesting to see if Tornado will do something special to celebrate its forever classic 38.

Improve-it = Palm Beach 70

In January 2023 Palm Beach commissioned a first 70 model with extended bridge.  Unlike previous 70 with flybridge this new version of Palm Beach flagship model features an extended fiberglass bridge deck, adding space to the flybridge, and covering the aft deck with a rigid protection.  This area on previous PB70 was usually extended with an awning, in order to cover the aft deck from the sun.  The 70 is the current flagship from Palm Beach, and is offered in Sedan and or Flybridge versions.  Other options in the Palm Beach 70 are that for an upper or lower galley, and two or three double guest cabins layouts, plus a crew cabin at midships.  The Palm Beach 70 is powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives or line shaft propulsion.  Palm Beach are renowned for being super efficient thanks to a unique hull shape design, and light weight construction, and the 70 is a confirmation of this consuming just under two hundred litres an hour at 25 knots, which equals to eight litres per nautical miles at that speed, with Volvo 1000hp and IPS pod propulsion combination. That surely makes it one of the most economic 21 meter yacht on the market today.

Project: Seanfinity T7HT

Seanfinity from South of Rome in Italy has been on the growing side of things and after launching its T4 and T5 models, present the project for a larger T7, a sport yacht of 21 meters.  Designed by Gianluca Caputi, a talented designer who was part owner and designer of the Italcraft revamp in the noughties, the Seanfinity T7 is semi custom project available in HT as pictured above with inboards surface drives, and or quadruple outboards Mercury 600hp.  Seanfinity and Caputi who apart the designer is also part owner, along with Vincenzo Tuccio of Top System surface drives fame is far giving little details, possibly also because this is a very semi custom project.  So far we can see that the Seanfinity T7 will have a transformative aft deck, with opening side balconies, which transform the aft into a massive beach bathing platform.

Project: Leopard 28m

Things are getting in motion at the revived Leopard Yachts, with this 28m project starting construction in 2022.  Leopard returned back to life in 2021 acquired by Seven Stars after Paolo Picchiotti blessed the acquisition of the legendary name, which was a sub name of Cantieri Navali Arno introduced in 1973 to the avant garde Poalo Caliari designs introduced in that year, which eventually became permanent.  The Leopard 28m comes from a design of Andrea Ramasco, known for his work for Amer yachts, and naval architecture courtesy of Optima from La Spezia.  Permare is helping in the construction of this first Leopard 28m, with the new ownership having high hopes in following the success of the Paolo Caliari 27m Sport model sold in 48 units in a sixteen year production run from 1995 to 2011 which this model replaces.  The Leopard 28m will feature a sport bridge design, and a sleek profile full of windows.  Leopard is not giving any details for the interior of the 28m, although sport yachts in this size usually have a four double cabins layout with full beam owners stateroom, and two crew cabins for three or four persons.  The Leopard 28m is to be powered by triple Volvo 1000hp and IPS pod drives propulsion who should give an estimated top speed up to 32 knots and a cruise of 28.  The first unit is expected to go in the water this 2023 year.

New Model: Invictus TT420

Invictus starts the 2023 year by presenting its second in size new TT420 model at the Dusseldorf boat show.  An announced model at the fall of 2022, the TT420 comes from Christian Grande, the designer who has thus far designed all Invictus, and is all about offering the TT460 qualities in a smaller package.  It is in reality a big competitor to the current Invictus flagship in exterior spaces, offering a similar layout, with the difference being felt much more inside in the accommodation area below decks.  Like the TT460 the TT420 is all about exterior living which spans the whole twelve meters length of this sport cruiser, and is easy to navigate thanks to the walk around deck, split only by one step forward, and the option of two port and starboard drop down balconies which extend the space. The main deck welcomes you aft with a central sun-pad which also features a garage for a tender over two meters in size underneath, further forward  is a dinette with  opposite looking settees and space for six to eight persons, followed by a huge galley wet-bar, and then the triple settee helm station. To fore-deck is a V-shaped sun-pad.  Down below the Invictus offers four berths accommodation, in two single berths at midships and a V-shaped dinette which scissor closes and becomes a double berth.  In between the cabins is a spacious head to starboard, with a separate shower box looking aft.  The Invictus TT420 is powered by Volvo 320hp up 440hp in stern drive propulsion.

Project: Cayman S600

Presented as a project in 2020 as the S580, Cayman has since then evolved the project and renamed it as the S600.  But this was not just a name change and along the bathing platform extension Cayman also reworked all the window profiles, from those of the hull now larger to those of the upper structure, and also redesigned the air intake. On the the interior the Cayman S600 should be little if any different to the S580 with a three double cabins three head layout sleeping six with a full beam owners stateroom at midships.  A single berth crew cabin is to be located aft.  All the living, dining and galley is located on the main deck.  The Cayman S600 shares hull with the 2021 launched F580 flybridge model, and is to be powered by twin Man 800hp engines.  The first unit of the Cayman S600 is nearly completed with its World wide presentation scheduled for the Naples boat show in March.

New Model: Pearl 72

Pearl Yachts presented the new 72 to the public for the first time at the 2022 Fort Lauderdale boat show at the end of October, approximately a year after the announcement of the project in Cannes 2021.  The 72 offer to the market is still unique in her class with Pearl design of exteriors from Dixon and interior from Kelly Hoppen CBE now doing all the four model line-up from the 62 to the 95 flagship super yacht. In terms of layout the Pearl 72 makes a unique introduction in this size-class with two master staterooms; one forward with a private entrance as typically seen on larger yachts, and the second for a full beam amidships. In addition to providing an ideal solution for co-owners who enjoy the yacht together, the innovative layout allows owners to enjoy a beautiful view even when moored stern-to in a marina. There are two further en-suite double cabins plus accommodation for the crew, in addition to an exceptional garage with space for a three meter and a half plus tender or jet ski.
