The GTT 115 – Porsche superyacht
Monegasque yacht builder Dynamiq has joined forces with Studio F.A. Porsche to create an exclusive series of all-aluminium superyachts imbued with Porsche DNA. The world famous industrial and transport design studio, lead by Managing Director Roland Heiler (a Member of the Board at Porsche Design Group) has created both the exterior and interior styling of the entire range. The first 35-metre Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid is already under construction in Viareggio, Italy, while 100- and 85-foot models are in development and will be presented later this year.
‘Taking the spirit of high-performance sportscar styling to the high seas, the Dynamiq GTT 115 is designed to appeal to car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance,’ says Roland Heiler. The sporty exterior design by Studio F.A. Porsche matches the yacht’s noteworthy performance, and the name says it all: GTT stands for Grand Turismo Transatlantic. Two world leaders in hydrodynamics, both from the Netherlands, were commissioned to create efficient hulls for the new series. Vripack developed the hull lines of the GTT 115, while Van Oossanen is responsible for the naval architecture of the GTT 100 and GTT 85 models.
Available in the signature Porsche Carrara white, Rhodium Silver, Chalk or custom Monte-Carlo Blue exterior colours, the GTT 115 boasts refined lines with signature Porsche elements, such as the Targa-style mullions or the transom design that echoes the Mission E concept. The deck cushions feature fabric centres with a classic Pepita houndstooth pattern, similar to the latest 991 R edition. On the inside, the sporty yet refined interior features three or four luxury cabins with Saddle brown and Luxor beige leather with carbon fibre details, and expansive surfaces of Sahara Noir marble. The furniture and decoration were developed in association with the Italian designer brand Minotti.
‘When we talk about comfort and top service, the ideal for this size of yacht is six guests in three cabins served by a 1:1 ratio of six crew for genuinely exclusive onboard service,’ says Dynamiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov. ‘We also designed the interior ceiling heights to more than 2.15 metres (7 feet), even in the lower deck cabins: that’s real luxury on a 35-metre yacht.’ In fact, Dynamiq yachts bring the comfort and luxury of much larger superyachts to a smaller segment of the market. They are aimed at a discerning clientele that appreciates the builder’s rational approach to creating more manageable yachts.
A limited edition of just seven GTT 115 yachts will be manufactured, making the model a truly unique collector’s edition. Prices for the GTT 115 start from €11,900,000, with a short delivery time of 15 months from the date of order. The first GTT 115 by Studio F.A. Porsche is available for sale with delivery in September 2017. Her world debut will take place at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show and the yacht will attend subsequent international events.
