Project: Grand Banks 62

Grand Banks Yachts presents the project of the 62, a new model which continues to solidify the near seventy-year history of designing and building pioneering long-distance explorer yachts that combine both speed and range. Like all Grand Banks models, the 62 evolved from the company’s relentless quest to build a better explorer yacht, with the new project coming as an evolution of the 60 model which debuted the Mark Richards designed era of models with V-warp technology hull in 2017. The Grand Banks 62 is to be standard powered by twin Volvo 900hp with line shaft propulsion for a top speed up to 30 knots. Alternatively the same engines can be offered with IPS pod drives for an extra one knot of speed but less range at 27 knots, and Grand Banks also offering the 1000hp Volvo engines as optional. In both line shafts and pods propulsion set the Grand Banks 62 engines are mounted at midships. If adventures lead you farther over the horizon, the 62 can deliver a range of 2,000 nautical miles with 10-percent reserve at ten knots. At twenty knots, total fuel burn will average 120 liters-per-hour representing market leading performance when compared to other similar sized explorer yachts, thanks to the running attitude of the V-Warp® Technology hull angle remains at about six degrees, keeping the maximum amount of waterline in the water for added efficiency and speed.  The Grand Banks 62 is to offer a three double guest cabins layout, with the owners stateroom being located in between the fore VIP suite and the three berth midships cabin.  The living is all located on the main deck with the Grand Banks 62 coming with an astern galley layout.  A 62 Skylounge version which encloses the helm up top, with an L-shaped dinette and a day head to starboard is also to be available.

Project: Palm Beach PB85

Representing nearly three decades of innovative Palm Beach Motor Yachts design and construction, the PB85 is set to become the new flagship of the renowned global yacht brand.  Entering the Superyacht realm is a natural progression for Palm Beach Motor Yachts, the acclaimed builder established by ocean-racing champion and performance yacht builder, Mark Richards.  Since its founding in 1995, Palm Beach Motor Yachts has garnered international recognition and a devoted following among enthusiasts of technologically advanced, meticulously designed and built, high-performance motor yachts. They are becoming increasingly known for their impressive fuel efficiency and range, consuming less fuel than other yachts in their class.  The Palm Beach PB85 is designed to be available in three exterior versions; Sedan, Extended Flybridge as pictured above, and Skylounge choices.  The interior of the PB85 will offer an upper galley layout, with this getting more space in the Skylounge option as this version does not feature a main deck helm station.  Lower deck accommodation is for three double cabins forward, with two cabins for crew located at midships located in between the engine room and fuel tanks.  The Palm Beach PB85 is to be powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives and or twin Man 1300hp on line shafts with top speeds up to 26 and 27 knots respectively.  As is usual for Palm Beach the PB85 is whisker light weighing at just 43 tons unloaded, and thanks to this able to give an impressive 700 nautical mile range at 21 knots with the Volvo set up.  Give or take this would be about 8% more with the shafts set up, which is still an impressive number.

Project: Sessa F6X

Sessa is expected to present a new F6X project for the 2024 Cannes boat show.  The Sessa F6X comes from a design of Davide Cipriani Centro Stile and fills the gap or most probably replaces the Fly 54 model which debuted in 2009.  Sessa has in 2019 announced an FX5 project, and this new F6X seems a soft evolution of that design with a name change and more hull glazing.  At seventeen meters the Sessa F6X will offer a three double cabins lower deck with three heads layout, with a main deck offering an astern galley layout, with the central area offering a hybrid dinette saloon settee.   The Sessa F6X is to be powered by twin Volvo 725hp with IPS pod drives for an estimated top speed up to 32 knots.  The Sessa F6X enters into the very competitive seventeen meter flybridge yacht segment of the market.

Project: Galeon 435 GTI

Following the North American success of the 435 GTO, Galeon presents the 435 GTI version, the I instead of the O meaning for inboard power, targeting the same platform for the European market where diesel power are for the most part what buyers usually choose above eleven meters in size.  So far Galeon is not very detailed on specifics, but rumor is it will be powered by twin Volvo 480hp with IPS pod drivers.  So if speed is your thing, then the GTI is going to be slower to the GTO, which is powered by twin 600hp up to quadruple 500hp Mercury outboards, but consuming much less fuel on the cruising side of things.  The Galeon 435 GTO debuted at the start of this 2024 year in the Miami boat show, a hard-top sport cruiser walk-around hybrid with useable all around features thanks to the uniqueness of a fully enclosed hard top which can open all during entertainment time and be closed during not so nice weather.  The Galeon 435 GTI should offer the same sleep four lower deck with a forward cabin, and a full beam midships cabin with double bed to port side, with large shower head to starboard and furniture unit in between the two cabins.

New Model: Apreamare Gozzo 38 Cabin

Apreamare is pleased to announce the launch of the first unit of the new Gozzo 38 Cabin. This event not only celebrates the launch of the long-awaited traditional inspired looking cruiser, but also confirms Apreamare role as an innovator, without losing touch with tradition as the historic Neapolitan shipyard has been known throughout the world for designing and building boats since 1849. Conceived by Cataldo Aprea and designed by designer Marco Casali and engineer Umberto Tagliavini, the Gozzo 38 Cabin evolves from the famous Gozzo 35, introducing new elements in the design for an extremely comfortable on-board experience. The 38 Cabin was designed to expand the internal spaces and guarantee greater protection and accommodation on deck, making it ideal for multi-day cruising in every season and sea condition, although Apreamare has offered similar solutions in the past on its thirteen meters plus and larger cruisers and yachts, it is the first time it is offering a fully enclosed cruiser at eleven meters in size.  The new Apreamare Gozzo 38 Cabin will be officially presented at the upcoming Cannes boat show followed with an Italian premier and the Genoa Boat Show the following week, where enthusiasts will have the opportunity to admire this latest example of Italian nautical craftsmanship firsthand. The first Gozzo 38 Cabin will cruise the seas of Northern Europe, confirming the marine aptitude of this model designed for the owner who wishes to navigate comfortably all year round and in all weather conditions, even enjoying a multi-day cruise. This is possible without betraying the winning spirit that animates Apreamare’s projects: great seakeeping, hull stability, comfort, and beautiful shapes and lines that recall the centenary tradition of Sorrento gozzi.

Project: Beneteau Swift Trawler 54

During the 2024 Miami boat show, Beneteau announced an upcoming Swift Trawler 54 model.  Beneteau showed only one rendering of the 54, what would be the largest Swift Trawler to date, and second in size to the Grand Trawler 62 which debuted in 2022 and head lines the French builder's Trawler range.  Beneteau did not give much information on this new model, apart that it will have an eight hundred nautical miles range at nine knots, and is to be equipped with loads of efficient and clean energy solutions; from wind mills to solar panels on the hard-top and the coach roof as the above rendering shows.

Project: Prestige F5

During the Beneteau Group press conference at the 2024 Dusseldorf boat show, Prestige vice President Erwin Bumps announced the project for an upcoming F5 model.  Very few details have been given apart the above rendering and that the F5 is set to debut during the Cannes 2024 boat show, although expect the model to show up during the Beneteau Group test days in early Summer usually held in around mid July.  Since we have no details I can speculate a bit about the F5, and if this project follows the pattern of the F4 which is based on the Prestige 520, then I would imagine this to be based on the 590 model.  As is the case of the F4, the F5 will benefit from an important re-design and re-engineering of spaces to increase volume as possible, in its sixteen to seventeen meter length.
