Azimut Grande Trideck
Azimut Grande Trideck, is a revolutionary model designed for a contemporary owner, in search of constant contact with the environment and who experiences the boat as an ideal place for conviviality.
The model was named Trideck + One, because of the extra aft deck in addition to the three traditional ones, completing a visual effect of cascading terraces from the top of the Sundeck down to the sea. The project has been carried out by a tested team, consisting of Alberto Mancini for the exteriors, Achille Salvagni for the interiors and Pierluigi Ausonio for the hull.
Benetti Montopanfilo 37M
Motopanfilo 37M is an elegant and modern yacht that meets the needs of today’s owners, inspired both by Benetti’s Navette from the ’60 and the great creative expression and vitality of those years.
The external lines are the result of a collaboration between the shipyard and designer Francesco Struglia, while Lazzarini Pickering Architetti developed the interiors. Benetti Motopanfilo 37M design perfectly balances nods to the marine tradition with new stylistic and technological trends.
Cantiere delle Marche RJ 130
RJ is a 40-metre steel and aluminium explorer yacht, featuring exterior and interior design by Francesco Paszkowski and naval architecture by Hydro Tec. This luxury explorer yacht has a great wealth of exterior spaces with a real go-anywhere, do-anything expedition pedigree. Her elegantly austere silhouette brings the unmistakable signature of Francesco Paszkowski who, alongside her noteworthy geometry, introduced countless well-conceived features in terms of logistics, livability and functionality.
With this yacht Paszkowski succeeded in treading a line between innovative lines and timelessness. RJ hosts 12 guests in five suites and seven crew members in four cabins. RJ features twin heavy duty MTU engines 10V2000M72, delivering 900kW each at 2250rpm, allowing a top speed of 14.5 knots. At the economic speed of nine knots, she will have a remarkable range of around 5500nm with about
10% fuel left upon arrival.
Ferretti Yachts 1000
Ferretti Yachts 1000, the new Ferretti Yachts flagship, is the largest boat ever built by the shipyard. This composite material yacht, with parts in carbon fibre that underscore the hi-tech content, is the result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, architect Filippo Salvetti for the exteriors, and Ideaeitalia for the interior concept.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood in Classic style, featuring soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts. The other option is Contemporary styling, with fresh tones and bolder colours. At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing in both outdoor and indoor areas, where quintessential ‘Made in Italy’ taste prevails.
The suavely understated design, featuring clean lines and sophisticated materials, conveys a sense of refined luxury and is the ideal interpretation of the values expressed by the ‘Just Like Home’ claim: comfort, Italianness, timeless design and craftsmanship.
ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO
The concept of ISA Super Sportivo 100ft GTO focuses on the maximum enhancement of the values of sportiness and seaworthiness in an open vessel. The sleek lines are accentuated by the high deep V-shaped bow and by the profile angle rapidly decreasing towards the aft. The sizeable open surfaces available forward and astern make it a unique product in its category, while the large opening glass panels of the hard top still ensure maximum comfort even in the covered areas of the cockpit.
The boat performance is stylistically amplified by the big air intakes playing a dynamic role when positioned above the hard top. The interior, available in several options from three to five guest cabins in addition to the two crew cabins, are totally customizable and characterized by a design aimed to maximise light and confer an iconic architecture on spaces.
Performance is certainly the main ingredient of what is about to be one of the fastest models currently available on the market. Indeed, with 3 MAN 2000 HP engines she can reach the impressive speed of 50 knots.
Maiora 30 Convertible
With her 30.5 m length and 7.5 m width, the Maiora 30 Convertible can boast truly impressive volumes, both outdoor and indoor, conveying a sense of airiness normally found on much larger vessels. This yacht owes her name, Convertible, to her great versatility: various onboard areas can indeed be used in many different ways and for a variety of purposes, depending on her Owner’s needs, creating ever-changing settings and offering an unforgettable onboard experience.
On this yacht, the interiors have been pencilled by Centro Stile Maiora in cooperation with Fossati Design Bureau. Stepping on board, guests are welcomed by a very spacious cockpit, which, upon specific request by the Owner, is used as the dining area on the main deck.
From here, a large, elegant aft staircase leads directly to the beach area, which, once opened, reveals a real ‘floating’ sauna where guests can relax and then, just taking a few steps, dive into the refreshing water of the sea. On entering the salon, guests will be immediately impressed by the floor to ceiling windows letting in plenty of natural light and offering a breath-taking view. The living area features a custom-made two-sided sofa, facing both aft and forward and leaving the Owner and his guests simply spoilt for choice: watching the sun plunge into the sea, on one side, or relaxing in front of the TV on the other.
The cosy, bright master stateroom, characterised by a sophisticated and elegant design style, is located towards the bow. In the bathroom, the shower – made entirely of fine marble – can also be used as a Turkish bath. Amidships, an elegant staircase connects all three decks. The guest area has been arranged on the lower deck and consists of four, two VIP and two double, large cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms.
Mangusta 104 REV
The Mangusta 104 REV is a revolutionary yacht – the entry level in the iconic Maxi Open range. This vessel’s sporty and slender lines preserve the Mangusta DNA, but reinterpret it in a modern key. Other distinctive elements on this cruiser are the wide glass surfaces flawlessly integrated in her powerfully aggressive profile, to create a true engineering masterpiece.
The exteriors and interiors form a smooth, harmonious continuum, maximising the concept of lifestyle meant as an unforgettable onboard life experience. The Owners and their guests will be able to enjoy maximum relaxation and privacy in the many areas available onboard, including – among others – the comfortable sunbathing area, located forward, and the sundeck, which is seamlessly integrated in the profile and unravels around the radar arch, resulting in a minimal, assertive look. The sundeck consists of a relaxation area furnished with a comfy U-shaped sofa and the second pilot station. The aft cockpit door opens completely, connecting the salon to the exteriors to create a dining area where guests can indulge in pleasant convivial moments.
The interiors have been designed so as to obtain unparalleled brightness, not only on the main deck – where the cosy, sophisticated salon is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows – but also on the lower deck, which can accommodate up to 10 guests in 4 airy cabins: the full-beam master stateroom, a VIP cabin, and two guest cabins. The Mangusta 104 REV is equipped with 2 MTU 16V2000M96L engines and as many waterjets, pushing her to a maximum speed of 35 knots, noiselessly and without the slightest vibrations. At the cruising speed of 25 knots, the yacht can boast a range of 370 nautical miles.
Numarine 37XP has an impressive 345 GT with a 5,000 nautical mile range at 10 knots, which is on par with the world’s best expedition yachts in this class. The Numarine 37XP has the appropriate stability, seakeeping, maneuverability, and general handling to support offshore and worldwide cruising. The yacht has a spacious interior with several social areas. The main deck saloon and cabins benefit from large windows and are filled with sunlight.
The aft beach club features a bathing platform and an inside lounge literally sitting on the water level. Wide outside spaces are another major advantage of the new model. The wide body flybridge is almost 10 m long and it turns into 80 sq. m space. The master suite is on the main bow and there are four guest cabins and a nanny cabin on the lower deck.
The explorer has an extended Carbon Fibre hard top covering the flybridge and 44.5 square meters of solar panels with the total power of 7530 watt-peak on top. This vessel is a displacement version with a bulbous bow powered by twin 560 hp MAN engines.
RSY 38m EXP
The RSY 38m EXP is 37,83 metres long, with an 8,85 metre beam, an impressive 410 Gross Tonnage and two MAN D2868 LE 425 (588kW) engines. These characteristics confer a true Explorer personality, designed for long-distance independent cruising in complete safety. Since the sales contract was signed, Rosetti Superyachts has worked closely with the owners, actively involved in all phases of construction, interior design and selection of all the accessories.
The partnership with Hydro Tec and BurdissoCapponi Yachts&Design was fundamental so the RSY 38m EXP represents Rosseti’s first tangible experience of a totally custom built ship and demonstrates the strength and reliability of this shipyard in satisfying the requirements of all owners.
On SL120Asymmetric Sanlorenzo has applied the asymmetrical configuration only in the living area of the main deck, extending from the cockpit to the center of the vessel. First of all, this choice permits the expansion of this area of eight sqm, eliminating the portside deck and maximizing connection with the sea by creating an ample dining room on one side, with full-height glazing, and a living area on the other side that opens onto a balcony, thanks to a sliding wall and an openable terrace. It also makes it possible to totally utilize the internal space of the contiguous forward zone, the location of the owner’s cabin which extends for the entire width of the hull.
This new asymmetric layout is possible thanks to the particular design of the side deck which is now placed only on the port side of the main deck, where it flanks the living area as far as the vessel’s midpoint, then leading to the flying bridge and descending into the outdoor lounge at the bow by means of a flight of steps. Another fundamental design feature of the SL120Asymmetric is the organization of outdoor spaces.
The outdoor lounge at the bow, for example, develops on two decks connected by a staircase, with direct access from the owner’s cabin. It is a space of 15 sqm conceived for a range of different uses: while the foredeck is completely outfitted as a large sunbathing area, the upper deck features a table for outdoor dining, which can also be transformed as a sundeck.
Furthermore, the C-shaped sofa facing the deckhouse can be replaced with a Jacuzzi.
Sunseeker 90 Ocean
The class-defining, all-new Sunseeker 90 Ocean breaks new boundaries in yacht design, boasting a 20% increase in overall volume and up to 30% more deck space. With her substantial 7,16 m beam, she truly sets herself apart from rival models in her size category. Her unique stem bow creates a brand new Sunseeker silhouette.
Reaching an impressive 1800 nautical mile range at a cruising speed of 12 knots and a top speed of 26 knots, the 90 Ocean is a distinctive force in the water.
From her generous Beach Club complete with innovative transformational X-TEND sunbed system to the impressive foredeck, equipped with a laser projector and 140-inch screen ready to transform this area into an open-air cinema, this is the perfect craft for luxury entertainment.
Up onto the vast flybridge, owners can select an infinity-style spa pool to complement U-shaped seating and a large sunpad, all serviced by a newly styled integrated wet bar framed with LED lighting. She accommodates eight guests in four exquisite cabins, three doubles and a twin in a standard arrangement, or up to 10 guests in a customised configuration.
The living space, comfort, luxury and privacy of a 33-metre superyacht in a 27-metre boat: the result is the new and highly original WHY200, the latest motor yacht developed by the Wally design team led by Luca Bassani and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, with the collaboration of Laurent Gile NA for the naval architecture and A. Vallicelli & C for the interior design.
A benchmark in yacht design for 25 years thanks to the brand’s avant-garde models that have always been ahead of their time, anticipating new fashion trends, today Wally has set its sights on the compact superyacht segment with WHY200, which has a gross tonnage of 200 tonnes and a hull length that allows it to be registered as under 24 metres.
A unique boat capable of offering the comfort and space of a larger displacement yacht combined with the speed and performance of a semi-displacement model. To understand why WHY200 is such an extraordinary yacht, the numbers speak for themselves, with over 200 m2 of covered living area and 144 m2 of outdoor space.
The lower deck – depending on the layout chosen – can accommodate three or four double cabins for guests. Thanks to the latest generation naval architecture and propulsion system, Wally WHY200 can cruise at a speed of 23 knots in ‘hyper displacement’ mode either on brief trips or when time is short and there is a lot to explore.
