Project: Azimut Grande 44M

Once upon a time Azimut-Benetti Group never felt the confidence to push Azimut Yachts beyond 35 meters, this was particularly shown in 2012 when the Grande 140 and 125 projects were eventually rebadged as Benetti Fast Line during project stages.  Things change with times and after 2021 and the launch of the Trideck 38 meter and its success of 21 hulls sold to date, Azimut is now going further into bigger dimensions, with the project for this new sleek looking and innovative Grande 44M project presented during the Palm Beach 2024 boat show.  Azimut’s new flagship is as all the recent offers a Low Emission Yacht with concept and exterior styling by Alberto Mancini and interiors by M²atelier, who are working with the Shipyard for the first time.  The Grande 44M as is the usual course of Azimut brings the future to the present, an expression of its mission to marry technological innovation, visionary design and a focus on environmental sustainability. Grande 44M amazes by offering something that doesn’t exist today: a superyacht with reduced CO2 emissions that brings bold, flowing lines to a design with four decks rather than the traditional three, embracing and sculpting significant volumes. Grande 44M is a super yacht that offers a unique and unexpected onboard lifestyle for this segment, with a stand-out Upper Deck, which can be converted into an Owner’s Deck with uninterrupted sea views both forward and astern. The concept underpinning the innovative styling created by Azimut in partnership with Alberto Mancini, is the decision to move the helm station to the fourth deck, freeing up the Upper Deck so that it can be transformed into an Owner’s Deck featuring the master suite and a private terrace offering spectacular views. to aft, the Grande 44M reoffers the Mezzanine Deck with Sea View Terrace that was central to the success of Grande Trideck theme. On the Grande 44M, this stage overlooking the sea is made even more unique by the See Through Pool, with its plays on transparency that establish continuous contact with the water and generate reflections that give the beach club an even more magical feel. The new layout means that architecture firm M²atelier, who are working with Azimut for the first time, could create an interior design that balances functionality and aesthetics, making the owners’ experience central and offering versatile settings to configure according to how they like to spend their time with family and friends. The forward section of Grande 44M’s Upper Deck can be fitted out as a media room for guests or reserved for the owner, or alternatively as a dining area with veranda accommodating twelve people. In both cases, almost two-meter-long windows on either side provide open views outside, where a lounge area in the bow with a small firepit offers a cozy space from which to watch the sun set over the water. It’s a lifestyle aspired to by everyone who loves the sea. Water is the key element in the narrative told by m²atelier, capturing its essence and giving back fluidity, dynamism and reflections. m²atelier, a firm with an international reputation for creative projects in multiple sectors, from residences and hotels to retail and product design brings as a distinctive signature for Azimut a clear message, accented by refined, subtle, whispered details that seduce with a discreet simplicity completely free of affectation or overemphasis. Grande 44M is not only a design and lifestyle masterpiece, but also a highly advanced naval architecture project and a new milestone in the green course charted by Azimut. The yacht is also the flagship of the Shipyard’s family of Low Emission Yachts, models that offer a reduction  between 20 and 30% in emissions compared to more traditional naval architectures of the same size. The innovative naval platform of Grande 44M is based on a Dual Mode hull, the introduction of the Hull Vane® foil technology and the Mild Hybrid Plus Zero Emission Hotel Mode system. The Dual Mode hull, developed in partnership by P.L. Ausonio Naval Architecture and the Azimut Research and Design department, represents the union of two types of conventional hull: the bow section is typical for fast displacement boats, while the part from midships to the stern has a chine commonly found on planning hulls. This results in a hull that allows a considerable reduction in fuel consumption and emissions at every speed range. The foil technology is installed for the first time on an Azimut yacht thanks to the collaboration between Hull Vane, Dutch company global leader in the design of advanced hydrodynamic solutions, and the Azimut|Benetti Group Research and Design Department which has gained a great experience in the design and production of carbon components. The Hull Vane® carbon wing fitted to the stern of Grande 44M is able to suppress the stern wave and generate forward thrust, providing further reduction in overall drag as well as damping of pitch, sway, and roll in navigation. The ability to combine onboard comfort with a focus on environmental sustainability is a stand-out feature of the designs developed by Azimut, which now already offers six models that can be fitted with a Zero Emission Hotel Mode system, making it possible to stay at anchor from up to eight hours with the generators turned off. On the Azimut Grande 44M this technology achieves maximum efficiency in combination with the Mild Hybrid Plus system, a new level of electrification developed by Azimut|Benetti Group in partnership with Asea Nautica. The Mild Hybrid Plus Zero Emission Hotel Mode system is the only solution today that makes it possible to cruise with the generators off and all loads connected, as well as producing a surplus of energy used to recharge the battery pack. Grande 44M is scheduled to be presented to the public at the Cannes 2026 boat show, with Azimut already announcing five units sold at the unveiling of the project during the Palm Beach boat show.

New Launch: Baglietto Superfast 41m hull #10242

Baglietto has launched an aluminum custom build 41m Superfast super yacht hull number 10242, titled m/y Francesca II. This Baglietto 41m custom Superfast is characterized by a strong personality and comes from a design by Francesco Paszkowski who also signed also the interior in collaboration with Margherita Casprini, and naval architecture by Bacigalupo.  Paszkowski designed a flybridge yacht of important size, yet with a stream lined profile that even though she is a flybridge yacht, makes her one of the most sleekest yachts in size.  Fully custom this 41m Superfast bears a personal layout, with all guests cabins located on the lower deck: master stateroom at amidships, VIP suite forward, and two guest cabins with twin single beds that can slide convert into double beds. On the same deck, closer to the stern, are the crew quarters and lobby located beside the engine room and conveniently accessible directly from the main deck, they include accommodation for five with a captain’s cabin and two double cabins for the crew, and a galley with dinette. The aft garage, which opens on one side, is used to store a tender. The main deck has been devised in such a way as to ensure a harmonious continuum between interior and exterior areas. Two sliding doors, one located aft and the other on a side, provide access to the dining area and to the conversation area of the main salon. The latter is brightened by the natural light flowing through two ceiling-high windows, which also ensure a wonderfully close contact with the sea even when living indoors. The pilot station can be found forward of the main salon. The outdoor aft cockpit hosts a lounge area, while the sunbathing area on the aft swimming platform is perfect to relax by the sea. Another sunbathing area and a second conversation area have been set up at the extreme bow of this modern, impressively functional yacht. A second pilot station, with a pleasant relaxation area just behind it, can be found on the fly bridge. Baglietto's custom Superfast hull number 10242 is fitted with triple MTU 1920hp with jet propulsion system, delivering a top speed up to 33 knots and a cruise 28 knots.

Project: Mulder Fifty

Following nine hulls of the ThirtySix its was a nornal step up for Mulder Shipyard to introduce the project for a new Fifty flagship model. The aptly named design spans an impressive fifty metres, making her the largest yacht to be developed and marking the start of Mulder’s journey into larger super yachts up to 500 Gross Tonnage. The brief for the Mulder Fifty, featuring an exterior design by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, is to create a ‘fourth generation’ super yacht. The Mulder Fifty yacht will be built from a platform at the main production facility in Zoeterwoude. By building the Mulder Fifty in a continuous flow like the ThirtySix, the shipyard will be able to offer the possibility of optimizing her specifications and general arrangement and will borrow ‘engineered elements’ from the ThirtySix, to control production cost and continue working with her preferred suppliers. The Mulder Fifty showcases a light grey hull with tapered decks and aft overhangs. She offers a bespoke alumimium construction, with a slender hull shape to ensure outstanding seakeeping capacities in rough seas and enhanced comfort for those onboard. Designed to be just under 500 Gross Tonnage, the Mulder Fifty offers ample space for guests, both in her interior and exterior. With full-height windows in her main saloon and sky lounge, providing guests with breathtaking views, creating an opulent and relaxing space for the whole family to enjoy. As a result of Mulder’s ‘four generation’ philosophy, the Mulder Fifty presents a family-friendly and adaptable accommodation configuration. The standard design offers six sumptuous staterooms, with the possibility of adapting her sky-lounge to create a seventh suite on the aft wheelhouse deck. The lower deck of the Mulder Fifty yacht includes a side-boarding garage, capable of housing tenders up to 6.5 meters, alongside a spacious beach club area and gymnasium, with direct access to the main deck. Her 75 square-meter sundeck is sheltered by a sunroof and features a reinterpretation of the iconic Mulder wind-swept mast. This area encompasses a Jacuzzi, sun-pads, a cocktail bar, comfortable seating, and forward-facing observation seating, providing an area for both relaxation and entertainment. The foredeck’s ‘open plan’ design provides versatility tailored to meet specific owner requirements. In addition to the expansive saloon, showcasing the signature Mulder central bar arrangement, and the sky lounge with floor-to-ceiling windows; generous space is also available on her wind-protected aft decks. Guests will never be far from the water onboard the Mulder Fifty, thanks to her three-meter long swim platform, allowing for direct access to the water. The Mulder Fifty superyacht also has the option of including a pool on her aft deck. But for those looking for some adventure, Jet Skis can be stored on her bow, which also boasts a hatch-concealed anchoring arrangement. The lower deck of the Mulder Fifty accommodates a crew of nine across five cabins, alongside a large laundry area and crew mess. Her single engineer’s cabin situated on the aft of the yacht, close to the engine room, also provides direct access to the main aft deck. While a tenth captain’s cabin is located on the main deck, close to the wheelhouse. In terms of propulsion, the Mulder Fifty will not compromise on performance to ensure comfortable cruising and fuel economy. The option for a hybrid-propulsion system can be offered, to optimize her lightweight alumimium construction.

New Model: Tankoa T450

Sold in late 2021 shortly after the new series was presented, the first unit in the Tankoa T450 has been launched and christened m/y Go at the shipyard in Genoa. First Tankoa model under fifty meters in length, the T450 expands Tankoa's range of super yachts, bringing the builder's values to the market of more compact vessels. It reaffirms the boutique shipyard's reputation, rooted in its commitment to quality and comfort, coupled with innovation and elegance, making it a true benchmark. Built in steel and alumimium, the T450 is an innovative project by Giorgio M Cassetta, intended to maintain the brand's timeless aesthetics while introducing bold vertical elements to the superstructure, combined with sleek horizontal lines. Introduced to the shipyard by Italian Yacht Group of Fort Lauderdale, the American client for the first unit requested that the original gross tonnage of 430GT be increased to 450GT to provide more interior volume. In terms of accommodation, M/Y Go offers a huge master stateroom forward on the main deck and five comfortable guest suites on the lower deck. Throughout the yacht, expansive windows flood the interior with natural light, emphasizing the spaciousness of each area. The generous beach club features opening side platforms that wrap around the stern and a sliding sun-pad that closes the pool during navigation. The large sundeck has a hydro-massage tub and shaded dining area, while the upper deck is fitted out with a dedicated gym and a fire pit in the bow. With a second unit in the T450 sold and under construction, as well as the TX450, Go will be delivered in the spring and make her international debut at the autumn boat shows.

Project: Sanlorenzo SD132

Sanlorenzo present the project for a new SD132, as designed by Zuccon and set to launch in 2026.  The Sanlorenzo SD132 is the largest ever SD range model, the semi-displacement hull shape and traditional ship looking series which debuted in 2007 with the SD92, and signaled a new era for the famous Italian semi-custom super yacht specialist.  The SD132 comes as a replacement to the SD126 after an eight year production run and about twenty hulls delivered.  The SD132 also completes the circle of the SD line with all the models now designed by Zuccon, and the second of the series after the SD118 to offer a beach club with flip-over bulk-heads which doubles in size when at anchor.  For this reason the tender garage is to be located on the port side, with a ship-side entrance.  Interior accommodation is for five guest suites, including of which is a large owners stateroom at the forward part of the main deck, while crew accommodation is for eight located on the forward part of the lower deck, this area also including a lobby with galley and dinette.  The Sanlorenzo SD132 is to be powered by twin Man 1400hp or Cats 1622hp engines for top speeds up to seventeen knots.

New Launch: Feadship 102.6m Hull.1011

Feadship has recently launched Hull.1011 from its facility in Makkum, with the 103 meter super yacht continuing fitting out and sea trials in the North Sea prior to delivery later on this year. Designed inside and out by Sinot with naval architecture by Azure, the clean-cut exterior lines and vertical bow lend Feadship fourth largest build to date a distinctive profile and purposeful personality. This Feadship super yacht will feature 1,100 square meters of exterior glass that includes twenty exterior sliding doors and twelve glass windbreaks. There are four outdoor hot tubs, a swimming pool covering the full height of the main deck and accessed from the pool deck; a helicopter hangar under the forward helipad and no fewer than eight hull doors, one of which is the largest tender garage door ever installed on a Feadship. Hull.1011 has been built for a highly experienced owner who was closely involved in every detail of the 103-metre project from the start. Project 1011 began with a challenging brief, with the owner stipulating similar amenities and living space as his previous yacht of 6,000GT but in a design of half the volume for easier access to anchorages and harbors. The result is a masterclass in space planning and rule exploration. On this size of yacht a two-tier engine room is virtually obligatory, but a key part of the design of hull 1011 is a single deck engine room in order to devote more interior volume to guest use. This idea seems to have caught up now with another project under construction in Makkum using the same solution.  Feadship Hull.1011 is to be titled m/y Ulysses, and is reportedly owned by a New Zealander.

Ferretti expand the InFynito range presenting the second 80 model project of the line up, following the InFynito 90 which in the second half of 2023. Set to debut in the fall of this year the InFynito 80 builds on the range’s typical characteristics: environmental friendliness, unprecedented flexibility and innovative layouts, as magnificently embodied in the iconic All-Season Terrace. Other strengths include the yacht’s versatility, with a sundeck that can be open or semi-closed, and the sheer size, above average for the segment, of the exterior surface area covered and protected by the hard top or superstructure. Built at the recently purchased new Marina di Ravenna shipyard, Ferretti Yachts’ InFynito 80 is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Product Committee chaired by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, with exterior design by Filippo Salvetti and interiors by design firm Ideaeitalia. InFynito 80 willl have an overall length of over 23 meters, and a maximum beam of six meters plus and is designed to offer lovers of the sea a new and gratifying experience in highly customisable spaces where interiors and exteriors blend into one another. Ferretti's new InFynito 80 also features the Group’s F.S.E.A. technology, a package of environmentally friendly cruising solutions. They include an integrated system that stores the solar energy collected by the photovoltaic panels installed on the hard top in an Energy Bank, which consists of fourteen high-density lithium batteries that deliver more energy at the same time as guaranteeing a favourable weight-power ratio. The battery pack is in the engine room, in watertight steel containers fitted with temperature monitoring sensors. There was also a special focus on the use of green materials, such as natural and bamboo fabrics, regenerated leather and recyclable materials, ecological water-based paints and lamellar teak with FSC 5 certification, used throughout the exteriors. An overview of the various decks highlights the main deck astern, with a generous eighteen square metres dedicated to a beach area that features a sea-view couch incorporating a generous storage unit. There is also a stern platform with a linear lift for launching and hauling up the tender. The nineteen squared meters cockpit has a living area with free-standing furniture for greater flexibility in terms of layout and use. In the 29 squared meters interior saloon, the dining room of the standard version can be replaced by a show kitchen with a bar counter and stools. The yacht’s main galley is at the forward end of the main deck, with an electrically operated sliding glass door providing direct access to the All-Season Terrace. The hallmark of the range is its iconic covered terrace, sheltered by an extension to the superstructure for protection in all weather conditions and total privacy. On INFynito 80, the thirteen squared meters terrace can be configured as a dinette, with seating and an extending table, or as a bar counter. The raised helm station provides excellent visibility and is accessed by a staircase in the centre of the main deck. The upper deck, which is closed on bigger 90 sister, will be a totally open sundeck in the standard version, and a semi-closed one with glass panels as an option on this InFynito 80. The hard top provides shade for the entire dining area and foredeck. The stern section of the upper deck is a sunbathing area with free-standing furniture and an outdoor galley. The 43 squared meters lower deck has a master stateroom at the midships, a VIP suite forward, and two guest cabins. The crew quarters contain two cabins sleeping a total of three people. Ferertti InFynito 80 is to be powered by twin Man 1200hp or optional 1400hp engines for speeds up to 23 knots and a cruise of eighteen, and a range of up to one thousand nautical miles at twelve knots.

New Model: Heesen 55-meter YN 20255

Heesen is delighted to announce the delivery of the first yacht of the restyled 55-metre series following intensive tests in the North Sea. Titled m/y Iris Blue Heesen yard number 20255 met all the required specifications, and the tests were conducted smoothly and according to plans. During the second day of trials, the super yacht was tested in rough sea conditions, with waves up to 1.7 metres from north to northwest and westerly to north-westerly winds with gusts up to 28 knots. Just like her foresisters, YN 20255 proved to be highly responsive, accepting steering commands immediately. The use of large rudders in conjunction with a powerful steering unit makes for a very quick reaction, as does the high pitch of the propellers. The overall effect instils great confidence in the captain when manoeuvring in strong wind conditions. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects, the original designer of this series, carried out the restyle of the exterior lines. The design restyling lends the super yacht a more assertive stance on the water. The owner's quarters now feature a veranda on the starboard side, which is a truly transformative innovation. This feature is something truly unique that fundamentally changes the space experience in the 78 sqm stateroom, which now also includes new walk-in wardrobes. The possibility to access an outdoor area in complete privacy is a wonderful addition to this space. The layout has also been reconsidered and now features a larger sundeck with a bar around the whirlpool forward. On the main deck, the central atrium has been modernised, with a wider and revised main staircase, while there is an additional companionway from the wheelhouse deck up to the sun deck to ease crew access.

New Model: Arcadia A96

Arcadia debuted its new A96 model at the Cannes boat show in September 2023, a pocket super yacht of 29 metres in length-over-all and just short of eight metres in beam. The A96 is the next evolution from Arcadia which adds the unique features of its two product lines, huge stern terraces and easy manoeuvrable IPS propulsion system with twenty knots plus top speed typical of the Sherpa range, as well as embracing the immense volumes and sumptuously high level of services of the A line. As is always the case with Arcadia the focus on contact with nature runs deep: the yacht’s spaces merge into the surrounding panorama, while concept, external lines and onboard technology are all meticulously designed to offer total wellbeing, charting a new course for the brand. From the swim platform to the bow, the spaces flow seamlessly into one another, allowing the owner to choose between the conviviality of the main deck, a more discrete setting on the upper deck, and total privacy in the bow area. Sliding doors make for highly versatile living areas on the Main and Upper Decks, where the side and aft walls can be opened to transform these settings into open air spaces. High service standards are ensured by the separation of guest and crew flows, including a dedicated crew stairway, by the fully appointed pantry, and optionally by a second day toilet on the Upper Deck. There are five cabins: the owner’s full-beam, light-filled cabin is in the forward section of the Main Deck, while the four guest cabins are on the Lower Deck. For the interiors, the shipyard asked Igor Lobanov to privilege natural and, where possible, eco-friendly materials in a design characterized by soft lines and furnishings that have a pleasing hand feel, resulting in sleek curves and dark lacquered surfaces inspired by Art Deco. The colour palette is neutral and pale, with dark or metallic accents for contrast. A96 hull number one has three unique plus points in terms of volume, top speed up to 23 knots and sheer surface area, offering over four hundred square metres of liveable space. A lot of work went into optimizing weights, increasing structural comfort and boosting the efficiency of all the wiring and piping systems and the thermo-acoustic insulation of the engine room. The four Volvo Penta 1000hp engines with IPS pod propulsion in this unit offers easy manoeuvrability, thanks to joystick control and stability when pitching thanks to the interceptors and the satellite dynamic positioning system. The shallow draught and compact engine size mean that A96 can cruise in practically any waters. Thanks to collaboration with Volvo Penta and Garmin, hull one is also equipped with the most advanced port manoeuvring systems. Volvo based in Sweden supplied the Assisted Docking system that facilitates mooring operations, ensuring maximum safety in even the most demanding conditions. Finally Arcadia A96 can be fitted with the optional Silent Mode system rated over 100kWh and powered in part by solar panels, which guarantees up to nine hours of onboard life in silent mode, while the air-conditioning in the cabins is very quiet and ensures a uniform temperature in the various areas. Waveless Stab fins from CMC Marine round out the range for optimum comfort both under way and at anchor.

Project: ISA Yachts Gran Turismo 80M

ISA Yachts, a brand of Palumbo Superyachts, is delighted to announce that the new project Future, ISA Gran Turismo 80 metres, under construction at the Palumbo Superyachts shipyard in Ancona, is taking shape with the steel hull nearing completion. The vessel was sold in July this year and will be delivered in 2027. Team for Design – Enrico Gobbi, who penned the exterior lines, will also be responsible for the interior design. The naval architecture will be completed by Palumbo Superyachts’ in-house team. ISA GT 80 is a sporty coupĂ© with sinuous lines that breaks down the boundaries between indoors and out to create a unique and sophisticated fil rouge. The studied contrast between the hull colour, in steel grey with charcoal details, and the minimal windows confers an even slender appearance to the project and emphasizes its horizontal element. The sky-lounge housing the wheelhouse looks like set back so as not to break the slender line and to emphasize the distinctive ISA arch, here even more dynamic, which connects all the decks. Forward on the main deck, we find the infinity pool connected to the owner cabin via a lit up path with great scenic impact. The owner cabin is a true glasshouse, where the most unobtrusive uprights give centre stage to the opening floor-to-ceiling windows enhancing the sense of continuity between indoors and out. The outdoor furnishing is organic, characterized by round shapes and very modern curves combined with warm wood for a glamorous yet high-quality elegance. The equipped gym is located on the starboard side of the upper deck, which is the bridge where also the wheelhouse and the captain cabin are set. On the main deck, ISA GT 80 features 5 double cabins, including a VIP with lounge. The owner cabin located on the upper deck forward comprises two bathrooms, one with tub and shower, a vanity area, two wardrobes and an office. A sixth VIP cabin with twin beds has been provided on the lower deck. The crew area on the lower deck consists of ten cabins that can accommodate up to eighteen people.

Improve-it = Cantiere Delle Marche Nauta Air 108

Cantieri delle Marche has recently sold the second unit for a Nauta Air 108 model, and what would be the sixth unit of the Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino Nauta studio from Milan Italy, designed semi-custom series.  The Nauta Air series debuted in 2014 with two 90 models launched in that same year, and was followed with a 108 in 2016, and then a 111 a year later, and a 110 in 2019, with these last two units being both extended custom units born from the 108 platform. An evolved model within the Nauta Air series, this new 108 features subtle enhancements and modernized exterior lines for a truly captivating and contemporary appearance. Among the main differences with the previous Nauta Air 108, the fashion plates are visually integrated with the dark windows that run along the Main deck salon and a six meters tender with its crane are located on the main deck forward. Her interiors are bright and airy, and the generous hull volume allows for spacious lodging for the Owners and their guests. Accommodation is split between the Main deck master and four spacious cabins below decks, but guests are likely to spend most of their time either in the cockpit, with its uninterrupted views aft, or on the sprawling Sun deck. Night quarters for five crew members are on the lower deck and the Captain cabin is adjacent the wheelhouse on the Upper deck.  Hull number two of the Nauta Air 108 is to be powered by twin 715hp Cat engines for top speeds up to thirteen knots, a cruise of twelve, and up to 5500 nautical miles of range at nine knots.
