Oasis 135’ is the evolution of Benetti DNA, a displacement yacht and a new concept of using the spaces and experiencing new lifestyle on board.

LAUNCH OF THE RIVA 110’ DOLCEVITA A CONTEMPORARY LEGEND

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , ,

Riva 110' Dolcevita launch 1.jpg

The new flagship took to the sea for the first time at the La Spezia shipyard, fending the waves with its unmistakeable profile. 

Reminiscent of the unforgettable Anita Ekberg bathing in the waters of Trevi Fountain, Riva 110’ Dolcevita, with its flybridge of unparalleled beauty, entered the sea and posterity all at the same time.

The first unit of the new Riva masterpiece was launched on Thursday 22 March in La Spezia, at the shipyard that manufactures its 76 and 110 foot models.

Riva 110’ Dolcevita is huge from every point of view. Its visual impact takes the breath away as does the incomparable combination of aesthetics and function, state-of-the-art technology and sea-faring experience.

Marked by an ultra-sporting profile and a design embellished by shaped glass windows and chrome inserts, it’s the flagship of the fibreglass fleet. Among the most striking features, there’s the large glass windows on the trim line with integrated portholes and, on deck, the single height glass window that runs the entire length of the living room with the glass framed by a stainless steel structure.

This new Riva model is once again the result of a collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the design studio founded by Mauro Micheli with Sergio Beretta, the Strategic Product Committee chaired by Ing. Piero Ferrari and the Engineering Department of the Ferretti Group.

“For the largest Riva ship we have chosen the name of a time that is still endowed with sparkle and charm. The Dolce Vita as a truly Italian style indication, the happy combination where good construction and the good life come together. Cruising on this amazing 33 metre yacht is an aesthetic and emotional experience akin to the amazement felt by anyone watching the passing of the Rex, the famous cruise ship featured in the film Amarcord, another of Federico Fellini’s masterpieces –according to the Ferretti Group Chief Executive Officer, Avv. Alberto Galassi. This new seaworthy work of art is not just a gift to our brand’s fans, but to all dreamers who can thus rediscover the splendour and thrills of a new Dolce Vita”. 

Riva 110’ Dolcevita will make its official début during an exclusive event to take place in Montecarlo in May, the ideal place for the presentation of a yacht that is already legendary.

EVO YACHTS UNVEILS ITS 2018 NOVELTY AND RELEASES THE FIRST IMAGES OF THE NEW EVO CC

Tags

unnamed-15.jpg

Evo Yachts is ready to release the first rendering for the new project that will soon be launched. We are talking about Evo CC: center console with a streamlined and aggressive style, characterized by a unique design and outboard engines.

Only few weeks left until the official launch of the new Evo Center Console, the latest model from Naples-based shipyard Evo Yachts that has now released a preview of the first rendering.

Designed by Valerio Rivellini, Evo Yachts long time contributor, Evo CC will be characterized by innovative, smart design solutions that are also aesthetically impeccable and draw on the shipyard’s Form & Function culture. On board, all is designed to ensure the maximum comfort for owners and guests.

The outboards engines are the true novelty of this new model: the owner can choose between three options, all Mercury Verados outboards.

The main features include a large aft cockpit equipped with a big sun lounging pad and a carbon T-Top that offers plenty of shelter from the sun and extends far enough to provide shade for the three central seats facing the helm station. In the bow, a second sun lounging pad just increases the area dedicated to guests relax.

Below deck, where once again the leitmotif is functional design, we find a dinette that can be converted into a “cabin” so that the boat can sleep up to four people.

The hull design, with an 18-degree deadrise, ensures excellent seakeeping and maximum safety even during tight turns or in rough sea.

FERRETTI YACHTS 920 AND CUSTOM LINE NAVETTA 33, FRESH OFF IMPRESSIVE NORTH AMERICAN DEBUTS IN MIAMI, SET TO BE STARS OF THE SHOW 

Following successful runs at shows in Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Ferretti Group will showcase a luxurious fleet at the 2018 Palm Beach International Boat Show – the third largest boat show in the North America. Set for March 22nd thru the 25th, along the Intracoastal in downtown West Palm Beach, the show is becoming an important bellwether for the overall state of the marine industry, and a “can’t miss” for industry leaders such as Ferretti Group.

Riva Aquariva Super, Riva Rivamare and the Riva 76’ Perseo 

Pershing 5X and Pershing 82 VHP. 

In 2017, the Palm Beach International Boat Show saw attendance grow 14%, a jump that didn’t go unnoticed by many in the industry. As such, this ever-growing market is continually showing substantial interest in Made-in-Italy production.

The growing importance of the Palm Beach International Boat Show provides one last opportunity for celebration in the United States, as Ferretti Yachts celebrated its 50th Anniversary for the first time in the U.S. at the 30th Annual Miami Yacht Show ahead of the primary Ferretti Yachts 50th Anniversary event June 21-24th in Venice, Italy.

CUSTOM LINE 106’: A MADE-TO-MEASURE MARVEL

Custom Line 106' exteriors 3.jpg

The new addition to the Custom Line planing range  was presented at the 2018 Miami Yacht Show.  It is the second model by Francesco Paszkowski Design  and it will make its debut in late 2018. 

Custom Line is broadening the horizons of perfect yachting with a new project that got an enthusiastic response from the public and members of the trade at the recent US boat show.

The Custom Line 106’ is a new addition to the planing range. It is a product of the partnership between the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio, the Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department and the Product Strategy Committee led by the engineer Piero Ferrari.

The design of the lines on the bottom and the hull helps it to replicate and build on the outstanding hydrodynamic performance of the latest models in the brand’s planing range.

“The Custom Line 106’ marks another step forward in the growth of the Ferretti Group brand dedicated to large fibreglass yachts. This exceptional vessel complements the Custom Line planing-hull selection, which comes together with the array of semi-displacing models to form a comprehensive range for owners who want sizeable spaces, cutting-edge technological solutions, style and comfort: in other words, Custom Line excellence,” stated Alberto Galassi, the Chief Executive Officer of the Ferretti Group.

“In the design of the new 106’, a number of the brand’s distinctive features have been emphasized and new stylistic traits have been introduced. As is plain to see in various places, efforts have been made to break down the boundaries between the exterior and the interior. The new technical solutions and all of the aspects of the exterior and interior lines are closely interlinked, as they are all parts of a single architectural arrangement with perfect balance between the forms and functions,” explained Francesco Paszkowski. 

EXTERIOR 

The new yacht has large floor surfaces (a total of 220 m./2,370 square feet) that are all interconnected. To the stern is a more advanced version of the patented DMT – Dual Mode Transom system. It features two hatches that cover the stairs when the vessel is in motion, thus giving the stern an unbeatably clean-cut appearance. When the ship stops, they disappear into the central part of the door so that guests can climb up. From the garage, a tender of up to 5.45 metres and a three-person jet ski can be lowered into the water.

The forward area is even bigger than on other recent models: on the raised central island there are sofas and upholstered seating with reclining backrests and on the bow area there is a large sun pad spanning a total of 36 m. (387 square feet). There is also an additional garage for a Williams 2.80 Jet or a three-person jet ski.

The forward area is directly connected to the 53 m. flybridge by a walkway. Protected by two large windows on the sides, it has a standard hard top with two skylights. In addition, Bimini tops or canopies can be fitted to provide shade in the external areas.

INTERIOR 

The interiors of the main deck are bathed in natural light thanks to the large, full-height windows. On request, the central window on the starboard side of the lounge can be fitted with an electric opening mechanism. The support columns used on the Custom Line 120’ can also be found here, with lighting, audio and air conditioning systems on them.

Further along the starboard side, there is a full-beam master cabin in the foredeck. It is 6.50 m (21’4”) wide and contains plenty of storage space for the owner, as well as two dressing rooms and a large bathroom with dual facilities and a central shower. On request, a panoramic terrace can be added.

The port-side bulwark of the main deck provides access to the galley, the crew quarters (consisting of a cabin for the captain with a bathroom and a separate shower, and two crew cabins with a separate bathroom), and the integrated raised bridge.

The layout on the lower deck contains four standard cabins: two VIP cabins amidships and two twin ones forward, all with separate bathrooms. The beds in the VIP cabins face the bulwark to make the most of the view from the large hull windows, while an optional additional Pullman bed can be fitted in each of the two twin cabins.

The style of the vessel continues in the same vein as the Custom Line 120’: it explores greater formal balance and there are distinctive, strong colour contrasts in the furnishings and coverings.

Like the other recent Custom Line models, the 106’ comes with innovative software that allows an iPad to be used to operate the entertainment system installed in the lounge on the main deck, meaning that the various remote controls can be replaced by a single device. This technological solution can be extended to all of the different parts of the maxi yacht and it can also be used in conjunction with the owner’s personal devices.

The Custom Line 106’ is fitted with twin MTU 16V engines rated at 2217 mhp, which can take it to a maximum speed of 23 knots (preliminary data). Alternatively, it is possible to ask for twin MTU 16V engines, which can generate 2638 mhp and reach a maximum speed of 26 knots (preliminary data). 

The standard version is equipped with electro-hydraulic stabilizing fins, offering both underway and zero-speed modes. On request, gyroscopic stabilizers can also be fitted for maximum comfort at anchor.

BENETTI YACHTMASTER 2018: RECORD ATTENDANCE FOR THE ITALIAN LEG

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Italian leg recently drew to a close of the 2018 Benetti Yachtmaster, the three-day event organised by Benetti for superyacht captains, attended by over 200 professionals from the yachting world.

After welcoming over 1,000 participants from over 40 different nations in its previous 17 editions, from February 7 to 9 Benetti Yachtmaster paid a call on Castelfalfi, a medieval town in the Tuscan hills. The Italian event for 2018 confirmed everyone’s expectations and was one of the best attended gatherings of industry professionals, organised by a private shipyard, to bring captains and crew up to speed on all the novelties in the world of Benetti and at the same time offer a series of panel discussions and networking opportunities.

Against the backdrop of Toscana Resort Castelfalfi, opportunities to meet at the event were organised in alternation with others for team building, attended by over 200 people, mostly superyacht captains, but also engineers, industry operators, journalists and suppliers of crew and onboard services. The event opened with an important presentation by Benetti General Manager Christos Ramnialis, who gave a heartfelt and engaging speech in which he described Benetti’s growth strategies and how Yachtmaster plays a key role in them. He took pains to stress how “Yachtmaster has become, year after year, an essential part of Benetti’s development strategy. Tackling subjects such as training for captains and their crew has the twin benefit both of helping professionals who must keep up-to-date to offer efficient service, and of helping Benetti learn about the perspective of captains and crew. This constant feedback is what allows us to grow and improve.”

There was a packed programme of workshops and conferences at the event, with speakers who provided interesting food for thought on the subjects of charter guidelines in the Mediterranean Sea and social security contributions for seamen in France. Participants included not only crew members, project managers, surveyors and owners’ representatives, but also customers of Lusben and Fraser Yachts, the world’s leading yacht service provider. The most successful workshop based on its popularity was about “Cyber Security”, featuring a fascinating demonstration by international cyber security expert Cal Leeming. With the help of moderator Fiorenzo Spadoni, Italy Yachting Centre Manager for Rina Services, Leeming demonstrated the precarious state of cyber security, as implemented by the technology-based devices that should facilitate our daily lives, and how saving passwords, bank codes and confidential information in the digital memory of these devices always creates a risk for privacy. Another workshop popular with the public was “Leading Millennials”, with Karen Passman from Impact Crew and captain Luca Triggiani in the roles respectively of moderator and panelist. The aim of the seminar was to promote the culture of the sea and a maritime career with the youngest crew members.

Extremely useful, as always, were the B2B meetings, involving live demonstrations organised with official partners Awlgrip, Boero, Jotun, Rolls-Royce, Slam, Viraver, Sevenstar, Dockwise and Peninsula Petroleum and official sponsors Cgt, CMC Marine, Fraser Yachts, Lusben, Valletta superyacht, Mtu, Naiad Dynamics, Rina, Sea Sat Com, Team Italia and Yachtique.

The classic ‘live’ moment this year was dedicated to interviews given by three captains to three trade journalists about their life and working experiences. Maria Grazia Franco, the captain of Stella Maris, a 72 mt VSY superyacht, was interviewed by Justin Ratcliffe and explained to the public her experience as captain of 2.114 GRT superyachts. Roberto Cuomo, the captain of M/Y Skyler, the third Fast 125’ unit built in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, offered insights based on his vast experience and technical knowledge about a high technology yacht. Finally, Ed and Mary Krieg, respectively captain and chief engineer, presented an interesting photo report on their storied career sailing around the world on board a Benetti Classic.

The Castelfalfi event was also attended by Benetti Delfino 93’ owner and SeaNet CEO Matty Zadnikar, who commented: “Extending the invitation to owners was a brilliant idea by Benetti. A close knowledge of the boat, its secrets and its peculiarities is the prerogative of captains and crew, but it is also very useful for owners, who clearly play a very important role in managing a yacht and often don’t have time to keep up-to-date with the latest novelties. Events like Yachtmaster help to build closer and more productive ties between shipyard, owner and crew, as well as to gain a better understanding of owners’ needs.”

Roy Deas, who works on the M/Y Jazz of Monaco (a Benetti Tradition) and is one of the youngest Benetti captains, said: “This is a key event, because it offers both an opportunity for crew members to meet, as well as giving people a chance to share opinions and experiences, and likewise to learn new details about Benetti growth strategies.”
