Comment by Thomas Mühe of Focus Yacht Design

“What is good design? There are, as there have always been, different opinions on this. The Focus Yacht Design office developed its very own design definition. We are less interested in the questions of materiality, of forms, colours and fashions. We work primarily with the interpretation and the character of a yacht, seen as a singularity, an essence and also as a reflection of the owner’s personality. This personality alone is the decisive criteria for all the aesthetic and technical decision making on all FYD projects. The same applies to the development of the interior and exterior design for MY SOARING. Our goal was not to put together a selection of attractive details, but to create a coherent and harmonious whole that was to be simultaneously impressive and imposing but most of all a reflection and representation of the owner’s central life themes and requests.
It is most probably this very personal approach that positively surprised and convinced the owner from the very beginning. There were almost no design changes, but always very clear ideas and visions of what SOARING was to be that grew out of a very close collaboration. This gave rise to numerous unique and unconventional solutions, such as the back-lit onyx wall in the library. It is features like these, the successful fusion of classical and contemporary yacht design elements that imbue SOARING with a certain charisma. One of the many examples of this concept is the deliberately reduced but simultaneously expressive design language, such as the contrast of very light and very dark veneers. It is great to see how our concept has impacted the end result in such a purposeful and meaningful way. SOARING is a fascinating sight, but what is even more important for us is that she is a bespoke place of wellbeing, relaxation and enjoyment.”

The exterior comes with an elegant yet sporty and fresh design with a generous stern area that features several sunbeds and vast double helm station. The design leaves the typical Perini Navi designs known in the past.

NEW ERA Hydrogen Fuel Cell Yacht Lorenzo Lippi

NEW ERA // Fuel Cell Yacht // Lorenzo Lippi

Italian yacht designer Lorenzo Lippi created a 50m motor yacht concept that runs on hydrogen fuel cells.

NEW ERA is the master thesis project by Lorenzo Lippi, who graduated in Naval and Nautical Design at the University of Genoa. He collected experience at the Italian shipyard Tankoa Yachts as a project manager with project ELETTRA.

The project is inspired by the 112m fuel cell yacht AQUA by Sinot, the 62m hydrogen vessel by H2, the Race for Water project, the 65m Watchecho by VSY, and last but not least, the hydrogen racing car H2 Speed by Pininfarina.

Alongside the protection of the environment that becomes more and more important with zero-emission technology, electric propulsion increases the comfort and luxury onboard with the smell of diesel, sound, and vibrations.

A Yacht that produces Hydrogen

The yacht concept features Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) to store the hydrogen. Usually, hydrogen is explosive, must be stored under high-pressure and is highly flammable. LOHC improves these problems and makes it easy to handle.

Electrolyzer and watermaker (to filter out the salt of the seawater), and the onboard electricity are powered by a 240 sqm (96 kW) area of solar panels (there is also a bimini with fabric by Solar Cloth System). The electrolyzer produces 650 liters of hydrogen per hour, 300 liters of water per hour comes from watermaker, and the LOHC box generates 240 liters per hour.

The layout of the traditional with a full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck forward and features a private balcony, bathroom, desk and walk-in closet. The rear part of the main deck houses a formal dining table for up to twelve people, main salon, and beach club.

The lower deck accommodates two VIP and two guest cabins, alongside the crew area—furthermore, the technical rooms for the fuel cells, engines, and LOHC tank storage.

Skylounge, wheelhouse, captain’s cabin and al-fresco dining can be found on the upper deck.

Perini Navi 75m Heritage

Perini Navi 75m Heritage

The 75m Heritage by Perini Navi features design by Zuccon International Project and naval architecture by Philippe Briand.

I love designs with a low and sleek profile like this 75m design of the HERITAGE-series. The yacht features large open spaces aft and forward. The bow area has a beautiful flush-deck design, while the aft area features a pool, surrounded by sunbeds and stairs that lead to the beach club with gym and seatings inside. Fold-out platforms open the view over the sea.

The tender storage is forward and houses a bigger boat, a RIB, and a crew tender.

The full-beam owner’s suite contains the bedroom, office, his & her bathroom, and a walk-in closet. Next to the owner’s area are two double guest cabins, while four more guest cabins are on the lower deck. Furthermore, the lower deck accommodates a crew of 24 people with galley, mess, and crew gym. The captain’s cabin is next to the wheelhouse.

Baltic 68 Cafe Racer

Greener Sailing: Baltic 68 Café Racer

Created as daysailer and weekender - the Baltic 68 Café Racer

The Baltic 68 Café Racer appears with an excellent progressive and aggressive design. Moreover, not only the design is progressive, but also the choice of materials. Baltic Yachts will use natural materials like flax, which can be very interesting. Some weeks ago, I sailed the small daysailer Flax 27 by Greenboats from Bremen, Germany. Alongside the exceptional performance of the boat, it is also the design with visible flax fibers (the “counterpart” of visible carbon fiber). Javier Jaudenes designed the 20m sailing yacht. He draw also the lines of the Baltic 108 WINWIN.

Onboard energy

A 30 kW electric engine supports port manouvers and during low wind trips. To recharge the lithium battery, the yacht uses solar cells and a hydrodynamic generator. Furthermore, a microturbine serves as a range extender that can run on hydrogen.

Baltic Yachts focuses also on the power consumption of the board systems:

“Our system mixes re-circulated, less humid air with fresh air to reduce the amount of power needed to maintain the desired onboard ‘climate’. UV filters ensure the air is bacteria-free and solar panels can power the system in eco mode with no draw from the battery bank.”

Dynamiq GTT 160

Dynamiq GTT 160

Known for designs far away from beaten paths, the Monaco-based yacht brand Dynamiq presents the new Dynamiq GTT 160 with helipad.

Alongside the remarkable designs, another feature of Dynamiq Yachts is their configurator with price transparency directly online without contact a salesperson to get the first information and possible options. The price of the Dynamiq GTT 160 starts at €19,900,00 – my configured version ended at €24,354,142 (almost full) without VAT and custom works.

The standard configuration is powered by two straight six-cylinder MAN i6-730 (537 kW each) that support a maximum speed of 17 knots and a transatlantic range of 2,700 nautical miles at 14 knots. With the economical speed of 10 knots, the range is 4,000 nm. If you wish a top speed of 23 knots, you can choose MAN V12-1800 engines. In case you want excellent comfort, the yacht is available with hybrid propulsion and electric-only mode to sneak on short distances.

The exterior design has been created in-house by Sergei Dobroserdov, who is also the founder and CEO of Dynamiq Yachts. Van Oossanen did the naval architecture. The Hullvane foil (developed by Van Oossanen) is available as an option to enhance fuel efficiency.

The forward area is the garage for a 21-feet Castoldi Jet Tender and a helipad for helicopters of a weight up to 3,000 kg.

The interior of the Dynamiq GTT 160 can be equipped with excellent luxury goods by Minotti, Meissen porcelain, and Accessosois by Bottega Veneta or Sabrina Monte Carlo.

Sergei Dobroserdov explains the idea behind the Dynamiq GTT 160

“The idea was to create the most attractive proposal for a superyacht of just under 50 meters. There are so many 50-meter yachts below 500GT available, but they all look very similar with pretty much the same functionality. We asked ourselves, ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients?’ The answer was to focus on modern owners’ priorities and leave the less important things aside. So we decided to design the GTT 160 with the accent on the key factors: well-being, efficiency, and price. In terms of naval architecture, we selected a slender hull with a long waterline that is much more efficient and comfortable than a short, wide one. So rather than maximizing the interior volume, we analyzed everything an owner wants or needs in terms of general arrangement and features. We then arrived at a concept that provides the motion comfort of a 55-meter yacht with a conventional flared bow.”

JFA Yachts built the 22m (70 feet) fast-cruiser sailing yacht BASYC, designed by Finot-Conq

The fast-cruiser BASYC is also known as Project FC² 70′ – FC² stands for Finot Conq x Fast Cruiser. The design studio is very well-known for performance oriented sailing yachts.

FC² has an aluminum hull, a superstructure in glass/epoxy, and a carbon-fiber rig.

The draft of 4.40 m provides a deep barycenter for a large sail plan for more speed. To spent time in smaller harbors and anchor bays, the draft can be reduced to 2.00 m. The fast sailing yacht with the wide stern features a double rudder. To maneuver easily with the single-screwed engine, BASYC has a stern thruster alongside the bow thruster.

Light and bright interior

The interior uses a lightweight veneer of Zebrano wood with white surfaces and orange upholstery as accents. Windows in the superstructure and the hull allow a lot of natural light in the interior. The owner’s cabin and a cabin for the crew are forward located while two guest cabins are at the aft. All cabins have ensuite bathrooms.

In addition to the diesel generator, there are two hydro generators mounted on the stern to recharge the battery banks during sailing trips.
