Project: Aicon 68 Vivere

Aicon presents the project for a new 68 Vivere model, a twenty meter motor yacht as designed by Sergio Cutolo and his team at Hydro Tec.  The Aicon 68 Vivere although not advised as such looks to be a replacement and possible evolution of the 66 Vivere, which launched in 2022 after being announced in the fall of 2019, the first and so far only model to arrive from the US American ownership of Marc-Udo Broich. The Aicon 68 Vivere offers an evolution in its looks with a forward looking radar arch on top of the flybridge, and more clean glazing serving the main super structure.  Down below the Aicon 68 Vivere offers a four or three double cabins layout, with one or two crew cabins.  Option also exist for the main deck, for a more convivial astern or cozy forward galley layout.  The 68 Vivere is to be build with resin infusion with top sides made of carbon fiber for more strength and less weight and a lower center of gravity.   Aicon has not announced power choices for the 68 Vivere but expect power options similar to the 66, which is powered by twin Man 1200 and or optional 1300hp engines.  The Aicon 68 Vivere first hull is set to launch in the about a years time, arriving in about the first half of 2025.

Project: Princess F58

During the 2024 Palm Beach boat show Princess announced the project for a new F58 flybridge motor yacht to arrive in early 2025.  As designed by Bernard Olesinski and Pininfarina the F58 will sit in between the F55, and the F65.  By assumption I would have said the F58 would replace the F55 which has been in production since 2017 with a stylistic make over in 2021, but so far at least on declaration from Plymouth this does not seem to be the case, even though this new model is only half a meter longer.  A feature headlining the F58 is that she is to be the first Princess below 24 meters to offer a hotel service battery generated silent mode, probably also one of the few motor yacht's in this size.  The Princess F58 will also offer a spacious living main deck in it's size, and is one of the few yachts at eighteen meters with astern galley layout to offer both a dinette in front of the galley, and relaxing sofa on the raised part of the split level saloon.   As an example both the 2023 debutants, the Ferretti 580 and the slightly smaller Fairline Squadron 58 offer only a C-shaped sofa forward, which transforms to a dinette when needed.  Is this extra space in the inner saloon traded for the aft cockpit deck, for that to fully know we will have to wait for 2025, but on plans it does look to be the same size of the F55.  Down below the Princess F58, will offer a traditional three double cabins two head layout, with a full beam midships master stateroom, a forward VIP, and a third cabin with two single berths.  A crew cabin is located aft.  The Princess F58 is to be powered by standard twin Man 1000hp engines good for up to 31 knots, with optional 1200hp giving a 34 knots top speed.

New Model: Azimut Fly 72

The circle keeps on coming complete for Azimut with the new Fly 72 being the latest to take the Alberto Mancini design treatment outside.  The Azimut Fly 72 replaces the Righini designed 72 Flybridge which launched in 2015 after nearly eight years of production, and is also a new shaft propulsion yacht in its Fly line since 2018, which was the 55 Flybridge which debuted at Dusseldorf of that year.  As is usual to  Alberto Mancini for the Azimut Fly 72 he continues to show a sporty element in his designs, leaner and horizontal characterized clean lines, which further emphasize the sculptural tension that characterizes the Fly Series. Fabio Fantolino responsible for the interior on the other hand, renders the Fly 72 according to his distinctive style aimed at seeking perfect harmony between elegance, design and technique. The interiors are designed with a transversal stylistic approach, also evident in the choice of materials and shapes: wood combined with precious materials such as bronze and glossy lacquers, and shapes balanced between linearity and softness.  The Azimut Fly 72 also comes with a few options form the choice to make a 42 inch Lift TV on the flybridge, to the most important one of an Enclosed or Open galley on the main deck.  Down below the Azimut Fly 72 has a traditional four double cabins layout, with a master stateroom at midships, VIP suite forward, and two double cabins.  A crew cabin with two berths is located aft.  The Azimut Fly 72 is powered by two 1400hp Man engines with line shaft propulsion which give a cruise of 26 knots and reach a top speed up to 31 knots.

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.

Improve-It = Summit 54 Motoryacht

Summit Motoryachts, the high-performance cruising yacht range designed by Michael Peters and built by Kadey-Krogen Yachts, announces that it now offers the 54 Motoryacht model with optional Volvo Penta IPS propulsion. The first IPS version is currently under construction. An IPS-powered Summit 54 Motoryacht represents the completion of one of the company’s long-held goals. The Summit 54 optional power package will be twin 600hp Volvo with IPS800 forward looking pod drives, giving the vessel a company-estimated top speed in the upper twenty knots range. Standard power continues to be twin Cummins 542hp. Both power packages offer joystick control options and the ability for an additional station in the cockpit for close quarter manoeuvring. In addition to the increase in speed and performance, the IPS-powered Summit 54 will also feature a Volvo Glass Cockpit with Garmin electronics, allowing seamless integration with engine, drivetrain, and navigational system data, in addition to the Volvo interceptor trim-tab system. Tankage and engine room layout will remain the same regardless of propulsion package. In order to keep the weight distributed amidships, the company will employ jackshafts running from the D6 engines aft to the pod drives. Summit Motoryachts will also offer the IPS package on its 54 Coupe model scheduled to launch in 2025.

New Model: Absolute 52 Fly

For 2023 Absolute presents its new 52 Fly model, a sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht full of comfort, and class leading accommodation .  The second generation 52 Fly follows the design theme as Absolute Design and Research Lab outlined with the 60 Fly in 2021 and followed with the 56 Fly last year, with this sixteen meter flybridge motor yacht doing the third act of this future looking design.  The new Absolute 52 Fly is a modern flybridge motor yacht, which features an unusual layout of an owners stateroom forward, and the VIP room at midships.  A third cabin with twin berths is located to starboard, with a guest shower head serving the two guest cabins located to port side.  An optional crew cabin is also available in the Absolute 52 Fly, which if you option does not affect the glazed stern parapet open gunwale design.  The Absolute 52 Fly has a living main deck with an astern galley layout, a lounging which becomes dining C-shaped dinette forward, and a side door equipped helm station featuring a direct access to the open gunwale for easy side mooring.  Of note in the Absolute 52 Fly are the flybridge which again is one of the most spacious in this size and is optionable with a hard-top, and the fore deck spaces which is another class leading act.  Falling short somewhere, I would say the performance of the Absolute 52 Fly is not really breath taking, with a top speed of 28 knots and a cruise of twenty, and a 190 nautical miles range.

New Model: Maritimo M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht

In 2023 Maritimo has celebrated twenty years of boat building, and what a better way to do so then by launching not one but two new flagships, both being the largest builds to date adding two foot from the previous largest offer, which was the 2009 unveiled 73 Cruising Motor Yacht.  This new Maritimo M75 Flybridge Motor Yacht follows the S75 which debuted in Spring at the Sanctuary Cove boat show, with which it also shares hull, and offers a near identical layout with the addition of an enclosed flybridge up top.  The M75 Enclosed Flybridge is reachable via an internal stair case to port side, and offers a dinette, C-shaped lounge and an opposite helm station.  To aft of the enclosed bridge is also an alfresco area with a large C-shaped dinette, and an island standing wet-bar.  The Maritimo M75 offers a main deck with an astern galley layout while, and as most enclosed bridge yachts has no helm station here which adding space to a very large lounging dining area.  Below deck is a four double cabins layout with an owners stateroom at midships and VIP suite forward, with a fourth cabin with twin bunks.  Considering the 22 meter size a bunk guest cabin can be a let down for some, but consider also that the Maritimo 75 flagship series is very well thought on the engineering side of things, especially in what regards to efficiency, engine positioning and shaft angle. This is something not seen much nowadays. The Maritimo M75 is standard powered by twin Scania 1150hp engines with optional 1380 or 1625hp MTU engines.  Official speed numbers are not provided, but a review online of the first hull sharing S75 which was powered with the Scania's 1150hp did reach 28 knots in a very light ship set up.

Project: Azimut Fly 72

While some other brands keep delaying a new model, Azimut anticipates the market with the new Fly 72, a project announced just ten days before debuting at the 2023 Cannes boat show, which will debut along the two other Magellano 60 and Verve 48 Azimut novelties at the Cote d'Azur passarelle. The new Azimut Fly 72 replaces the fall 2015 launched 72 Flybridge after seven years of production, and continues the evolution of the Alberto Mancini era, which started with the 78 Flybridge in 2019. Three more Azimut to go for Alberto Mancini and transforming all the Flybridge range to his vision. The Azimut Fly 72 will also feature interior by Fabio Fantolino, a new name for the Italian builder, but also a first for the Torino and Milan based architect in the boating World. According to Azimut press release Fantolino will bring a transversal design language in the Fly 72, with the interior rendering showing clean modern furnishings. In the press release Azimut has not shared details of the Fly 72 accommodation, of which I would expect a standard four cabins layout and a crew cabin for two. Azimut is also quiet on the technical details, the outgoing 72 Flybridge is Man powered with shafts, but the 68 and 78 are Volvo IPS powered. So it will be interesting if Azimut will continue it's move into pods with this new Fly 72 model.
