In 1991, an extraordinarily large yacht by the standards of the time saw delivery in Europe, from Amels. Katamarino measured 184 feet (56.2 meters), springing from the drawing boards of the late Jack Hargrave. Little could the naval architect imagine that 28 years later, a larger superyacht would launch from a shipyard bearing his name.
At the start of 2019, Cantiere delle Marche turned its sales and marketing attention toward the United States. The effort is paying off, with the yard signing its third yacht, an MG115, to a client from this country. The 115-footer (35-meter) is just one of a few explorer designs created with Francesco Paszkowski Design. Indeed,
Speak with professional naval architects or yacht designers, and they may mention the well-known phrase form follows function. Project Nautilus, from the pairing of Luiz De Basto and Turquoise Yachts, embraces this philosophy in a particularly clever way. What appears to be an open design element along the 43-foot-long (13.4-meter-long) foredeck is actually an integrated
The best yacht designs start from the inside out. In other words, they take the accommodations and systems’ needs into account first. Xventure, a proposal from Heesen Yachts and Winch Design, started with an Intrepid idea… as in, an Intrepid 375 sportfisherman. This tender, and her double-height tender garage, are your first hints that Xventure
People on this side of the Atlantic aren’t the only ones concerned about the reconstruction of the Abacos following Hurricane Dorian. Baglietto has pledged to donate funds from the contract of their Abaco concept design to the cause. Fittingly, the megayacht design revolves around cruising the shallow waters of the Bahamas. Both Baglietto and the
An all-aluminum megayacht bearing sinuous curves like a sports car, the Rossinavi Super Sport 65 promises speed to match. Anticipated to exceed 30 knots, and with a volume close to 1,000 gross tons, the 215-foot (65.5-meter) project is the second collaboration between the Italian shipyard and the Pininfarina design studio. Specifically, the duo previously paired
