Project: Manda Yachts S09

Manda Yachts which arrived in 2023 continues to show its future with the project for a new S09 flagship model.  A project of Ceccarelli, the Manda Yachts S09 like the smaller S07 and S05 deceives categorization coming out as a super yacht in size with sporty features and fresh entertaining areas.  The selling point of the S09 as in the smaller Manda Yachts is the spacious aft just above sea level beach area which takes about 25% of the length of the yacht, and is connected to the lower deck of the yacht, which in standard plans connects it to the master stateroom.  The area is joined by three exterior entertaining areas, the aft main deck up top before going into the cabin, and the fore deck forward.  The enclosed living area of the Manda Yachts S09 is on the main deck, and it offers an L-shaped lounge sofa, dining area day head, a relaxing settee forward, and helm station to starboard.  The galley in the S09 is on the lower deck adjacent to the two crew cabins forward.  Accommodation is for four guest cabins, all with a private en-suite bathroom.  The Manda S09 also features a very invisible sport bridge accessed from an internal stair case, with this area offering a large sun-pad and a mini helm station to starboard.  The Manda Yachts S09 is to be powered by triple Volvo 1000hp for speeds up to 23 knots.

Project: Baia Atlantica 84

The iconic Baia is finally back starting with this new project for the Atlantica 84 which is currently under construction in Viareggio.  Atlantica 84 follows the lineage of the 78 Atlantica which debuted in 2003, and was the first yacht to offer a disappearing patio door, which when open and hiding in the roof, made a seamless area from aft cockpit to the interior saloon up to the helm station.  Ultimately the 78 Atlantica will be produced in nine units till 2010 plus a single of the revamped 80 Atlantica which launched in 2014, just before the Neapolitan builder closed its doors.  The new Atlantica 84 is a totally revamped new model, wider by just short of half a meter to offer more spaces and unlike the classic model will also feature a sport bridge up top.  Accommodation will offer four double guest cabins.  Crew accommodation is for four persons with two cabins located forward and a galley with access to this coming from a separate stairway to starboard of the helm station.  In the plans shown in the Baia web-site the main deck will be offered with an option for a dining table for eight behind the central helm station, or a bar area with stools.  The Baia Atlantica 84 is to be powered by twin 2683hp MTU with Arneson surface drives for an estimated top speed up to 52 knots.

New Model: Pershing GTX80

The first Pershing GTX80, was launched on April three in the port of Fano. The yacht has the sporty spirit and generous living spaces typical of the Pershing GTX range. The new Pershing GTX80, about 24 meters long, is the phenomenal result of collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari, design studio Vallicelli Design and the Group’s Engineering Department. The GTX80 is the first in 39 years of Pershing to feature a different design to that of Fulvio de Simoni, it will be interesting if with this new model Vallicelli will take design charge for the World famous and iconic Italian brand or if he will be responsible for the GTX series.  The interiors and exteriors on board the GTX80 communicate seamlessly with each other, creating a unique space and a new dimension of comfort. The yacht has two decks, plus a sport-bridge, and can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests thanks to the new four-cabin layout. There is also a cabin with two beds for the crew. The exterior styling, in classic Pershing grey, features a number of innovative choices: designed without stanchions, it points up the near vertical bow and the continuous, slightly convex sheer-line. In the bow section, the bulwarks have been lightened by a longitudinal slot, while those in the stern have a dual function, both incorporating the winches and converting into lateral terraces that swing down. This is the first time a solution like this has been adopted on a Pershing model and the aim is to establish even closer contact with the water. One of the outdoor spaces that stands out most is the stern platform, which has three different positions, making it a versatile and extremely important feature of the boat. It can be left in the default position, raised using the dual linear lift so that it’s flush with the beach area, extending and integrating the aft living space in conjunction with the lateral terraces when open, and also used for launching tenders. The bright, airy spaces and extensive glazing on the main deck are a signature feature of this model. Immediately aft of the helm station, which is fitted with three 24-inch screens is a living area containing a generous corner sofa, a dining area.  On this first hull this was made in a formal version with free standing furniture, and a fully integrated galley/bar in spaces directly overlooking the cockpit. This innovative design solution again underscores the focus on creating fluid, intercommunicating spaces. The black elements in the kitchen area create a slight contrast with the pale parquet and are color-coordinated with the metallic silver lacquered ceiling, which features multiple intersecting diagonal LED lights that diffuse light across the entire deck, from exterior to interior in a pared-down design that focuses on multiple angles. The sundeck is very spacious at 23 square meters, it’s 60% larger than the category average, while at the same time guaranteeing internal space of gran Turismo proportions. This effect is partly due to the sleekly dynamic arch-shaped deckhouse. The hard-top available for the sundeck, this first unit has one is made of carbon fiber to deliver the utmost in performance and aesthetic appearance. Equipped with three 1,000hp Volvo engines with IPS pod propulsion the Pershing GTX80 reaches a top speed of 34 knots and a cruise of 28.

Project: Zeelander 8

Zeelander present the project for the 8 model, soon to be taking place as the new flagship in its classic inspired line of the Dutch yacht builder which today starts at fifteen meters. The brand new 8 is an aesthetic development of the smaller Zeelander models which are so coveted by yachting connoisseurs, and will feature the same speed, quietness and immaculate finish that have helped position the brand at the top of the yachting sphere. The new Zeelander 8’s S-shaped shearline, gracefully raked stern and wrap-around windscreen will seduce longstanding fans of the brand, as well as newcomers. Zeelander has imbued the yacht with the same effortless curves as the smaller models. In fact, you will struggle to find a plain, straight line anywhere about the exterior. This is a contemporary design with a quality of timelessness, which ensures the boat will look every bit as good in twenty years as it does now. Designer Cor D. Rover’s experienced touch is again evident in the balance and proportion of the yacht. Despite her impressive 23.9m length overall, she so closely resembles her smaller sisters that it is hard to make out her scale from the renderings. Only seeing the yacht alongside and with a human figure aboard betrays her true size. Full details of how Zeelander has made the most of the extra volume afforded by the long hull and its six meters plus of  beam have yet to be revealed, except to say that the yacht will offer three double cabins for guests and space for up to three crew. It is also clear that the yacht will feature an innovative drive-in tender garage which builds on the system developed for the Zeelander 6 and 7. Once again, Zeelander has poured its industry-leading experience of noise and vibration attenuation into the new design. It enables the yacht to operate at full speed without noise levels on board ever breaking the 72dBa barrier. In other words, the Zeelander 8 will always be an oasis of comfortable calm even at forty knots. Construction is already well advanced at Zeelander’s newly expanded build hall in Groot-Ammers. This facility was recently renewed and extended in order to be able to accommodate client demand for larger yachts. The Zeelander 8 is to be powered by quadruple Volvo 900hp or 1000hp with IPS pod drive propulsion, with top speeds up to forty knots with the large engine option.  The first Zeelander 8 is to be delivered in Summer 2024. Zeelander Yachts’ range now includes four models: Zeelander 5, Zeelander 6, Zeelander 7 and Zeelander 8.

New Model: Bolide Yachts 80

The niche market of the super fast sport yacht beyond 24 meters has seen a new interesting player emerge in 2023, with Bolide Yachts first 80 model, what the Italian yacht builder calls the first Hyper Muscle Yacht.  Saying Bolide Yachts is new, is actually an understatement as the man behind the Italian yacht builder, is none other then fast planning hull specialist designer Brunello Acampora, who with his Victory design firm has designed and consulted an endless list of some of the best hulls in the last four decades.  With Bolide Yachts firsty eighty model, Brunello goes a step further creating the fastest yacht above 24 meters in size, which reaches an impressive 73 knots of top speed. For reaching this speed Acampora took four years to design and fine tune the Bolide 80 two stepped deep-Vee hull to match this performance, and going into pain staking detail for a light weight and stiff full carbon fibre construction, and a triple Man 2000hp power designed around a custom surface drives combination.  The Bolide 80 though does not stop with the performance and offers an interesting mix of luxury thrown in, with a design element which is both unique and futuristic in both the exterior and interiors, with the lower deck offering a two double cabins accommodation sleeping five.  The lower deck also offers a separate galley to port side with adjacent crew cabin, and saloon entertainment area which uses the full five meters plus of beam of the hyper muscle yacht.  Interested?  Bolide Yachts 80 is limited to ten builds of one or two hulls a year, with each build being semi-custom, and a price which starts at nine million euros.  Bolide Yachts is planned to have five models in the future with Brunello Acampora having preliminary details drawn in for both a smaller 70 and a larger 170 model nearly finalized.

Project: Pershing GTX80

The show flows on, and following the launch of the GTX116 this 2023 year, the Pershing GTX range enters its second phase with the project for a smaller GTX80 announced during the Dusseldorf boat show and set to launch in 2024.  These are some of the first renderings for the smaller GTX, the grand tourer crossover by Pershing. Designed as all Pershing since the brand was founded by Fulvio de Simoni the GTX80 is a super sport yacht of 24 meters in length, with a profile which is sportier leaner and symmetric, unlike the bigger 35 meter sister which is a more adventurous looking and features an asymmetric design with a side deck to port side and full-width to starboard.  Long time Pershing fans might also notice the GTX80 semi-circle side profile coach roof window design which echoes that of the integrated windscreen the brand and Fulvio de Simoni introduced in 1991.  Another different feature of the GTX80 to that of the larger sister will also be the opening drop down bulk-heads aft which double the size of the beach club bathing area.  The Pershing GTX80 will offer a four double guest cabin eight berths layout, with a crew cabin sleeping two located to starboard in between the engine room and cabin area.  The main deck of the GTX80 layout is an open astern galley to port side, a relax chaise lounge with low table opposite, an American dinner sofa forward, and central two-seats helm station, with port and starboard doors which lead to the fore deck.  The Pershing GTX80 also has a sport-flying-bridge leading you up with a stair-way to starboard, and a layout with a central sun-pad, dinette and helm station.  The fore-deck also features an entertainment dining relaxing area with dinette and a sun-pad further forward.  The Pershing GTX80 comes with a host of options from dark to light mood finishing inside, to the choice to offer a dining table in replacement to the chaise lounge to starboard, the fourth cabin replaced by a lower L-shaped dinette, and the optional T-top serving the flying bridge.  The Pershing GTX80 is to be powered by triple Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives, and so far no other engine options are known, although the official press release for the model is not yet out.  If further information is out this project post will be updated.

Project: Azimut Seadeck 9

Azimut new Seadeck series with sport-adventure looks and a large aft beach club area which extends both aft and to ship-sides set to launch with the 6 model in 2024, is already proving to be one of the most anticipated launches of the upcoming year.  Now Azimut is teasing Seadeck series fans even more with the first side profile rendering of the 9 project.  The Azimut Seadeck 9 was not announced during the press release of the new sporty range in March 2023, which announced the trio of 6, 7, and 8 models from sixty to about eighty feet, with the 24 meter flagship still under wraps; no rendering shown and a target date launch for early 2025.  At this stage it is not known if the Azimut Seadeck 9 is an additional fourth model of the range, or if the 8 became larger because of a client request or during project and market analysis.  What we know so far of the Seadeck 9 is that it will feature an impressive 30% reduction in Co2 emissions thanks to the use of Bio-Diesel as envisioned by Azimut Green Path partnered with Politecnico di Torino, Eni Sustainable Mobility, Lloyd's Register, and Superyacht Eco Association as created by Yacht Club de Monaco and Credit Suisse.

Project: Austin Parker Mahon 80

Austin Parker present the project for a Mahon 80, a second in size model and flagship for its fully enclosed hard-top cruisers and yachts lines named to the capital city of the Island of Menorca.  As all Austin Parker onwards from 2008 the Mahon 80 is designed by Fulvio de Simoni looking similar to the Ibiza 85 flagship which launched in 2022, with the similarities stopping there.  Unlike the 85, the Mahon 80 is to be build in fiberglass and the hull is over a meter slimmer.  The Austin Parker Mahon 80 is an innovative fully enclosed hard-top which opens a lot when desired, from a patio door which fully disappears, to side windows which drop down, making the enclosed area of the main deck become rather open.  The living space of the Mahon 80 is to be located on the main deck, with a galley located astern and centrally.  The astern galley apart being something rare in this size, is also located centrally.  Another innovation in the Mahon 80 is the aft sun-pad, which is located two steps down from the main deck, becoming a part of the beach club when on anchor.  Down below the Austin Parker Mahon 80 offers a three or four double cabins layout, with two crew cabins at midships, with an option for an open dinette, or office space in replacement of the fourth cabin.  The Austin Parker Mahon is powered by twin Man 1000hp up to 2000hp in line shafts, or surface drives for the large engine option.  Speed estimates are for 35 knots top speed from the 2000hp engines with line shaft propulsion.

Project: Sanlorenzo SP92

It was a matter of time for Sanlorenzo to follow its ground breaking SP110 with a new sister, and here comes the five meters smaller SP92 project set to debut in 2024.  The Sanlorenzo SP92 follows the SP110 and the clever innovative vertical use of space in a super sport yacht which offers an un-edited way of using the two decks.  Another innovation in the SP series is also the use of free spaces in the exterior, not the first here, as Wally was a pioneer in this for its sailing yachts and later in its Power series.  Less is more is the evolving design theme in this second decade of the second millennium!  Sanlorenzo is giving no information for the SP92, but she will probably be available in a three or four double guest cabins layout plus two crew cabins as most sport yachts in this size usually are.  We do have some news on the engines though as the Sanlorenzo SP92 is to be powered by twin Man 2000hp with jet drive propulsion for speeds up to forty knots and a cruise of 35, and a range up to 900 nautical miles in a slow mode cruise.

Project: AB Yachts 125

AB Yachts announce the project for a 125 flagship model, with the first unit selling in end of June, and coming from a client request.  The AB Yachts 125 is based on the current 120 flagship, which launched in March this year and a second unit currently under construction.  The AB Yacht should be very similar to the 120 with the main difference coming for a larger beach club, with opening wing bulk heads which extended this beach-bathing area by about forty per-cent.   Another difference between the 125 and AB Yachts 120 is for a larger tender garage, with the new flagship able to put a tender under eight meters in length.  The interior of the first AB Yachts 125 is fully customized, but for an idea the 120 is offered in four or five double cabins plus crew quarters.  Speed numbers have not been announced but expect forty knots as is standard from any AB Yachts model ever made.

Improve-it = Otam 80HT

Otam continue to evolve its 80HT and with this new unit confirmed sold and started construction in March has now arrived in its seventh hull, in twenty years and all fully custom units.  This new hull #007 as Otam likes to call is the most customized yet, although we should have gotten used to the Genoa based builder where each unit is more customized to the previous and an evolution of the species.  Calling it an Improvement is also wrong as each Otam even the smaller ones are all mostly bespoke creations and very-custom units with even the shell changing and evolving.  For example this Otam 80HT will be fully build in a Kevlar Carbon construction and will feature bigger windows, with this giving a lighter feel to the hard-top structure looking similar to that of the 58 more then the other previous six 80s.  Unchanged are the engines with the Otam 80HT powered by twin MTU 2600hp and Arneson surface drives good for a top speed up to 48 knots, as is the naval architecture by Umberto Tagliavini, with the basis coming from the Fabio Buzzi designed 80 Record from 2001 which eventually became the Otam 80HT hull number one when this unit was transformed to a pleasure super sport yacht.

She is also the largest S model ever made, although Princess did make the V85-S from 2010 to 2012 sold in six units.  The S range launched in 2014 with the S72 and up until that time the sport bridge line was part of the V series with an S added at the end.  The Princess S80 will offer a four double cabin guest cabin accommodation layout with a crew cabin aft. Layout choices are available for the flybridge in dinette or with a low lounge table, on the main deck for an optional day head, and in the lower deck for the crew cabin offered with a small galley or a two cabin layout as option.

New Model: AB Yachts 80

Spring 2023 has started rather busy for AB Yachts as it launched its new 80 Sportfly model. Presented as a project in 2020, this AB 80 is the third unit to launch and is set to go in the USA.  The AB 80 replaced the AB78 in 2020 and is the current entry level model from the jet super sport yacht builder specialist.  The AB Yachts 80 will feature a traditional cockpit stern layout with an upper sun-pad, and garage underneath, with an interior of three double cabins and a separate galley located in between the cabins. A crew cabin with two berths is located forward.  Like any AB Yachts these details are subjective as the Viareggio yacht builder builds custom and to order, and an owner can change things before signing on the dotted lines.  The AB Yachts 80 is powered by triple Man 2000hp with MJP Jet propulsion for a top speed of up to 55 knots.  As any AB Yachts the 80 is a superior performance super sport yacht with a hull specially design for jet propulsion, which has been the set up of all AB Yachts produced from fifty up 145 feet and since the yard was founded in 1992.
