A handful of experienced yachting companies, including a shipyard and design studio, have banded together to create Atlante Yachts. The idea is to take owners through the design, build, and project-management process. They’re doing so with the Atlante Yachts Series, of which the Atlante Mistral 41 is already under construction.

The Southern Wind Shipyard team said goodbye to Taniwha this month.

What happens when two design studios are not content with the status quo in sailing superyachts, meaning limited volume for performance-oriented craft? They come up with Project Fury. Rob Doyle Design and Van Geest Design assert that this 207-footer (63-meter) has 40 percent more volume than current sailing superyachts of her size, therefore more luxury,
