Plenty of superyacht designers and superyachts draw inspiration from sports cars. But how about a superyacht styled by a company renowned for its transportation solutions? That’s the Dynamiq GTT 115, from Dynamiq and Studio F.A. Porsche, a subsidiary of the Porsche Design Group.
In build in Italy for debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September, the 115-footer (35-meter) is all-aluminum. Dynamiq is building her on spec. It revealed the first glimpses in April. Now, the builder is revealing a lot more.
The target market includes existing yacht owners looking to downsize from 164- to 197-foot (50- to 60-meter) megayachts, for simpler operations and costs. Simultaneously, the Dynamiq GTT 115 offers big-yacht amenities. Ceiling heights exceed seven feet (2.15 meters) on the main and lower decks, for example. In addition, the yacht has a 1:1 crew-to-guest ratio, with six guests and six crewmembers.
Roland Heiler, managing director of Studio F.A. Porsche, sees more characteristics for potential buyers. He imagines they’re “car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style, and our philosophy of intelligent performance.”
As for speed, the Dynamiq GTT 115 should achieve a 21-knot top end with twin MANs and Fortjes pod drives. Naval architecture is by Vripack, which designed a round-bilge hull. The hull further features a Humphree stabilizer system. That hints at the above-referenced intelligent performance, as does an optional hybrid power system. Performance extends to ocean crossings and shallow waters alike, too. The megayacht should see a best range of 3,400 nautical miles, plus has a 4’8” (1.45-meter) draft.
Since hull number one is for sale, you can customize the interior via Dynamiq’s website. From the exterior paint to helm electronics, you have multiple choices. You can preview the signature Porsche Carrara white paint job, or check out the Monte-Carlo Blue paint instead. Then, admire how the transom borrows cues from Porsche’s Mission E concept car. Select the interior and exterior furnishings package from Minotti. You get to price them all online in real time as well, something only Dynamiq offers in yachting.
Dynamiq plans to build just seven GTT 115s. Pricing begins at €11.9 million (about $13.273 million at press time). Delivery is within 15 months of contract.
