news in brief Blohm+Voss to Open Refit Facility in the Mediterranean Blohm+Voss has won the tender for the setting up of a new maintenance and refit facility for megayachts in La Ciotat, in the South of France, thus bringing their core business closer to their customers. The company will partner with ‘La Ciotat Shipyards’, the local company in charge of the site development, which is providing a large dry-dock and neighbouring workshop premises embedded within the existing shipyard. Blohm+Voss will utilise this new facility in the heart of the Mediterranean to maintain and service megayachts of over 80m in length. Operation is planned to start in November 2016.

100 Jobs Created in One Year IMS Shipyard are pursuing their dynamic recruitment policy with the addition of new talent to the teams. In one year, more than 100 staff were enlisted to join the shipyard’s technical teams, increasing the workforce from 50 to 150 employees. Mechanics, electricians, boilermakers, pipe fitters for production, and welders are among the new staff. The preferred profiles are international, to match the profile of the refit shipyard’s clients. New skippers and project leaders with international profiles will also soon be joining the team. IMS Shipyard presently employ 150 in-house staff and work with more than 150 sub-contracted staff on a daily basis.

news in brief Christensen Shipyard’s Unprecedented Superyacht Launch System Christensen have designed and built a revolutionary mini-drydock system, completely in-house. The system involves attaching large FRP boxes to the side of a custom-built steel trailer and allows extremely safe launches, even at low water. This unique system was used to launch the high-volume 164’ superyacht Silver Lining on the summer solstice (20 June) and the silver-hulled Chasseur five days later. Both yachts will be on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

33m Superyacht Missy Launched The high-performance, carbon-fibre, sloop-rigged superyacht Missy, designed by Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design and engineered by Pure Composite in New Zealand, provided Vitters with an exciting challenge to expand their work in high-performance lightweight construction. With her glass canopy replacing the more conventional superstructure/windscreen, she is a delight for design enthusiasts. The galley is open-plan through to the main saloon, and the cosy TV snug and split-level styling gives the area the feel of an apartment, facilitating easy interaction for families of up to 8. Missy also benefits from a fully-automated bimini and dodger system which sits flush with the low profile superstructure when stowed.

news in brief Classic Ketch Adèle Huisfit Upgrade Completed Refit work always has to be planned a long time in advance and this was certainly the case for the ocean-going ketch Adèle. Plans for the complete mechanical upgrade began 18 months in advance. Adèle’s busy schedule, which takes her to all corners of the globe, necessitated a tight and well-coordinated refit, avoiding any conflict between the various trades. This became especially important when the removal of the entire engine room inevitably expanded into a longer list of unforeseen issues. According to her captain, the decision to carry out the renewal programme in Holland was an easy one, based on the following factor: the quest for outstanding quality. The choice of Royal Huisman in Vollenhove paid off, with the added bonus of lasting friendships being created between the crew, the villagers and the shipyard.

news in brief Mulder Favorite 1500 The steady increase in demand for the Mulder Favorite 1500 has lead to the development of a new, more elegant version with a much improved aft deck layout. Seen as the nearest thing to a perfect family-size yacht in its length, the new 1500 is built to the highest standards and serves not only as the perfect day-cruiser but is also highly suitable for long voyages. The luxury and comfort which are inherent to this model are customisable down to the last detail, increasing its appeal to an international clientele.

Terranova Italian Yachts Joins Forces with Dahm International The renowned brokerage and charter company Dahm International has offices and subsidiaries in the most appropriate European locations; Terranova Italian Yachts, which opened a new production site in February of this year, is known for its range of modern explorer yachts from 68 to 115 feet. These two companies, both recognised within the superyacht industry for their dedication and passion, have agreed a Europe-wide exclusive sales representation for the newbuild superyachts. They will work together in this exclusive market and mutually support the sale of newbuild Terranova Italian Yachts.

Sunreef Yachts Presents Sunreef Supreme 68 Midori With the kind of comfort usually only found on a superyacht, this 20.7m sailing catamaran has immense social areas and a ‘zen’ spirit. ‘Midori’ is Japanese for ‘green’ and the catamaran was built to create harmony, reflecting the tranquility and moderation of Japanese aesthetics and philosophy. Midori’s three cabins and one master suite, each with clever storage, retractable TVs, Fosgate speakers and spacious private bathrooms, can accommoadate eight guests. The vessel is equipped with ample aft garaging space – a feature of all Sunreef Supreme 68’s. This voluminous area allows the convenient storage of a 5m tender, two jet-skis, diving gear and sails. The garage door, when lowered, levels with the yacht’s aft platforms to create an exterior lounging and sunbathing area – the first catamaran of under 21m to have this luxury.

The show has the privilege of benefiting from the recognition and the support of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Take it to the Streets While the main attraction of the Monaco Yacht Show remains the exhibition of the superyachts in Port Hercules, recent years have also seen a different show taking place on the streets of the Principality: a magnificent parade of prestige limousines ferrying the show’s VIP clients between the Yacht Show and Monaco’s luxury hotels.

Monaco Yacht Summit A new version of the Monaco Yacht Summit has been organised by the Monaco Yacht Show, with a revised format and open to an exclusive audience of a few high-profile attendees. The event, which will be staged in the afternoon on the eve of the MYS, will be organised jointly with the specialised media group Yacht Investor and in association with Global Partnership family office. Through the thematic workshops run by expert speakers, the Monaco Yacht Summit aims to discuss various aspects of superyachting today and provide useful information to an audience intentionally limited to 50 guests.

the 2016 MYS: the car deck. Installed on Quai rainier III in Port Hercules alongside the largest yachts in the show, the car deck will offer all visitors and exhibitors access to a 230m² indoor bar-lounge, while outside, prestige cars will be on display, available for purchase or a test drive in the heart of the town. The launching of the Monaco Yacht Show’s new exhibition area for prestige automobiles is an

integral part of their development strategy. Implemented three years ago, the strategy aims to further enhance the show’s ultra-high-level profile and thereby attract a new array of affluent visitors, both regional and international, to the quays of Port Hercules.

The very first edition of the Monaco Yacht Summit took place in 2013 and brought together both the industry’s professionals and yacht owners or future owners. This new MYSummit, dedicated exclusively to owners, potential future owners and their representatives, confirms the Monaco Yacht Show’s declared desire and ambition to promote the superyachting industry to potential new clients – those seeking information on a sector still largely unfamiliar – and invite them to meet the exhibitors on the docks of Port Hercules the following day.


Multi Steps Ahead in Monaco ‘multistep’ stepladder, located amongst the high-tech range of modern boarding and shading systems on display.


QAA39 MYS 2016

The Monaco Yacht Show is the main showcase for the finest in boat-building. It’s the place for superyacht owners and skippers to get together and seek out the latest innovations in high-end equipment, and it is therefore vital that bremen-based Multiplex GmbH doesn’t miss this opportunity. founder, ideas man and engineer, Jan reiners, will be available from 28 September to 1 october to personally advise his customers on-site. Whether during individual appointments or at the stand shared by the deuTScHe YAcHTen working group, interest will be centred on the new and innovative

1 4 | S Y I 2 0 1 6 | Volum e 11 | Issue 3

Monaco Preview.indd 14

“A lot of industry visitors know us and are coming to Monaco specifically to source special product solutions from us,” says Mr reiners, who will also be demonstrating his products on several of the yachts moored in the show’s harbour, Port Hercules, and which have already been fitted out by Multiplex. Gangways and stairways, railings and fender systems as well as sun awnings have been and are being tailored to the needs of various sailing and motor yachts. “ultimately, practical examples of how our light, durable carbon technology is being used by highly-satisfied customers is convincing many interested parties,” says the ceo. Mr reiners has always been a perfectionist, even back in 1986 when Multiplex was launched. The success story began with a carbon fibre rudder blade that took the 3-boat German team to victory in 1983 in the legendary Admiral’s cup, which took place in the south of england (cowes). The sailing enthusiast and son of a boat-building family filed the rudder down until it achieved an optimum hydrodynamic shape and its drag was minimised, but the

blade itself, despite the intense pressure, was able to withstand ‘racy’ conditions. Multiplex’s philosophy when it comes to striving for the best is as follows: lighter, easy to use and incredibly comfortable. The portfolio is also striking from a style aspect; all conceivable colours are available. Specialised maintenance and a worldwide spare-parts service form part of the company’s own demands for the highest quality. In order to gracefully step over the high ledges, steps or platforms found on superyachts, Mr reiners has picked up on the tried and tested stepladder principle in the design the ‘Multistep’. This innovative, guaranteed rust-free accessory is a true trendsetter as regards flexibility and functionality. Its shape is extremely stylish and there is a wide range of colours to choose from. Two side-mounted handrails also ensure a firm grip, even when seas are choppy. The ‘multistep’ can be locked at 30, 45 and 60 degree angles and can be set up in just a minute. Weighing in at 15kg in total, its steps are 500 or 600mm wide and are anti-slip or teak-coated. It can be stowed away in no time and takes up very little space.

Time. The Greatest Luxury on Earth? Make the most of your Time. Designed by Henry Ward Design, in collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee, Time presents an insight into the future: a 66m explorer yacht which expands on current innovation and takes a fresh look at the boundaries that can be challenged as our technology and expectations increase. Above all else, Time provides guests with an abundance of unforgettable experiences. The yacht carries an 18m floating lodge, docked within the aft end of the vessel and designed to blend in as a fixed part of the superstructure. On approaching shallow waters, the lodge can be launched as an independent base for mini expeditions in harder to reach places. On board is an owner’s cabin, a second guest cabin and open-plan galley / living / dining area. When moored in a secluded location, the aft section of the lodge folds down for direct water access and indoor/ outdoor living. The lodge is the perfect tool for you and your partner to break away and explore that extra mile. Need to get back to the mothership efficiently? Time will not be against you! The yacht has an autonomous drone housed in a hanger in the bow that is capable of transporting four guests.



The Time of Your Life

MYS 2016

Standing 15m above sea level, the sights that can be seen from the sky deck will be truly unmissable. This special viewing platform is accessed from the sundeck which itself is located above the wellness level of the yacht. Here you will find a gym, massage room and sauna. The bar area on this deck leads out to a terrace with hot tub and views forward over the bow. Need more of a thrill? Then why not climb up the inverted climbing wall on its aft face?

The DuTch Don’T like To blow Their own TrumpeTs, which is why one of our mosT famous sayings, roughly TranslaTeD, is ‘keep iT normal’. nonetheless, it behooves me to say that the last couple of years have been impressive ones for the Dutch superyacht cluster. words by Jeroen sirag


Jeroen sirag, Export director HIswA Holland yachting Group

t was a fine achievement that hiswa holland yachting group members won both the motoryacht (feadship) and sailing yacht (Vitters) of the year awards at this year’s world superyacht awards. claasen, mulder, heesen and holland Jachtbouw all won their categories on the same evening. and four other Dutch yards were finalists, emphasizing the breadth of talent we have in the netherlands and the superlative quality on offer to owners.

Impressive Results These results come on the back of some impressive numbers. having made 21 deliveries in 2015, members of the hiswa holland yachting group also received orders for another 24 superyachts last year averaging 56m, an increase of 26.3% on 2014. The forecast for 2016 is 25 deliveries with a total length of 1425m. There are two other figures that are important to mention as they allow us to see the bigger picture. holland was responsible for a quarter of the world’s deliveries in terms of value in 2015 and the average value of those superyachts was eur 52 million, twice the average build worldwide. how did a small country like holland become such a big player within the global industry? The Dutch have a great history of maritime trading that dates back to the golden age of shipping in the 1600s. as a low-lying country, our battle against the floodwaters led to extraordinary feats of engineering well into the 20th century. by blending a rich heritage of age-old craftsmanship with cutting edge technologies and a genuine desire to constantly learn from best practices, the superyacht cluster in holland has earned its place as a global leader.

The Tale of the Whale The Experience could there be anything more vexing than your glass of champagne toppling over and emptying its cold contents onto your dinner companion? and as embarrassing as it was, this incident, which occurred in choppy waters around antigua, pales in comparison with facing a boatload of green-faced guests. experienced hands may scoff at motion sickness, but rough seas have a way of cancelling all the fun of any pleasure cruise. if you are looking for the best way to tame the sea, Dms hollandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s antiroll retractable fin stabilizer system is the solution.

The Story of the Whale our inspiration comes from nature â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fins of a whale to be precise. it took millions of years of evolution to produce the thin, long, rotating and flapping fins that allow these incredibly bulky animals to soar above the water like ballerinas. like whale fins, the antiroll fins are long, narrow and curved, and can move and

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Hiswa Holland Yachting Group.indd 23

rotate in two directions. This gives them optimum effectiveness in all circumstances: they rotate forward and back for stabilization underway and flap up and down for stabilization at anchor. additionally, as the fins can be folded completely underneath the hull in shallow or arctic waters there is no chance of them being damaged.

The Results of the Design antiroll provides a retractable stabilization system for both underway and at zero speed without any compromise of performance in either circumstance. The curved, high-aspect ratio fins significantly reduce drag by between 50 and 75 percent whilst sailing, which in turn has a positive impact on fuel consumption. in addition, the fact that the fin is flapping and not rotating at zero speed makes it two to three times more efficient, providing a more stable yacht at anchor and ensuring your helicopter can safely touch down!

Rondal: a Touch of Science Fiction “if a rigger who left the industry a few decades ago returned today, he might get the impression he was in the latest spielberg science fiction blockbuster,” says rondal rigger Jan slot. “masts are cooked, fibres are stored in freezers and standing rigging cables are cured – while lengths above 65m have become the standard. welcome to the brave new world of superyacht rigging. “when i joined rondal 30 years ago, wooden masts only existed for the classic flatbottomed yachts. The most modern material for spars was aluminium. back then, a superyacht rig at rondal was a stick for a 65-footer , corresponding to a total mast length of some 25m. in-mast furling, not inboom furling, was the key to success. in those early days, we would step something

like ten masts every year. The procedures were relatively simple and we didn’t use safety harnesses, helmets or headsets – you just rolled up your sleeves and got on with the job. standing rigging was made from wire until it was replaced by rod rigging – a solid metal cable, which was stronger but still very heavy. “rigging systems, and yachtbuilding, have truly come a long way over the last few decades. i’ve witnessed much of the evolution in terms of the adoption of modern techniques and materials in superyacht rigging during my time at rondal. i expect the ingenuity and dedication of our craftsmen and engineers to yield just as many exciting innovations in the years to come.”

for kees groen, project manager at Van berge henegouwen, the relentless pace of change in audio Visual / iT technology ensures that every day brings something new. keeping up with the latest developments is a never-ending race, but the pace of innovation both within Vbh and in the outside world is exhilarating, bringing with it new challenges on a daily basis. “for Vbh it is vital as the technology partner to be fully aware of what’s new and what’s coming,” says kees. “as a team we’re always exchanging information and ideas via things like knowledge cafés: everyone gets together after work to eat pizza, discuss new technology developments and see how we can implement

them on yachts. it’s all part of what i love about working at Vbh.” “we not only specialise in audio Visual and iT, but also in lighting and security and bespoke installations that merge art and technology. it’s both exciting and inspirational to see the different technical disciplines within Vbh working together to realise a project. The potential of what can achieved is always growing since technology develops so fast. anticipating the future requires us to be flexible and agile and keep thinking ahead. The process of integration is as much an art as a science, and when everyone with their different skill sets and specialisations works as a team the results can be truly exceptional. combining the very latest in technology with the beauty and craftsmanship of the world’s finest yachts is something of which i never tire.”

Truly Special Galactica Super Nova, the 70m all-alumiNium FaSt DiSplacemeNt Superyacht iS the lateSt aND larGeSt Delivery to come out oF heeSeN yachtS to Date. SolD iN December 2013, Galactica Super Nova’s slender aluminium hull was engineered by heesen’s in-house specialists in collaboration with the renowned Dutch naval architects van oossanen, who devised the revolutionary hull form. an extremely thorough pre-design phase, using more than 35 years of yacht-building experience, resulted in a very efficient construction process that allowed the fullycustomised vessel to be built and delivered in just 41 months.


ea trials took place over four days this spring in the North Sea, starting with moderate weather conditions with waves of 1.5m that progressively improved to calmer conditions with waves of 0.5m and clear blue skies. Due to her high-performance Fast Displacement Hull Form coupled with an innovative propulsion system, Galactica Super Nova exceeded her contractual top speed by 0.3 knots to reach an impressive maximum speed of 30.3 knots. She further proved to be very quiet and highly manoeuvrable in all sea conditions.    The propulsion system consists of two MTU wing engines with fixed pitch propellers and a third central engine with Rolls Royce booster water jet. The first time such a configuration has been applied to a superyacht, it provides acceleration from 0 to 30 knots in just 75 seconds, making Galactica Super Nova not only one of the 200 largest yachts in the world but also one of the fastest.

Design Brief Beyond the remarkable performance and cuttingedge engineering, Galactica Super Nova is wrapped in a head-turning exterior design by renowned designer and naval architect Espen Oenio, who worked on a preestablished technical platform provided by Heesen. The designer was able to develop a profile that embodies Heesen’s DNA, but also introduces new design elements that make Galactica Super Nova one of the brightest

stars in the Heesen galaxy to date. According to Mr Oenio, “I’ve long been interested in making displacement hulls faster and more efficient, so I find the FDHF concept fascinating. I think there is a lot to be said for cruising comfortably and economically at speeds of up to 30 knots. In this day and age when people lead very busy lives, it means you can cover more ground in less time, which is something that appeals to a lot of owners.” The exterior design brief for the 70m evolved from the 65m according to Mr Oenio. “The 70m is based on the pre-established 65m platform, so Heesen came to us with a series of precise criteria as to what could be modified given the time frame we were working with. Heesen figured out all the engineering, while we came up with the general concept and detailing. The most obvious development is the superstructure styling from bridge deck to sundeck. There is no overhang above the bridge windscreen and we wanted to make all the side windows as big as possible, while also subtly simplifying the design language. The owner was

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Galactica Super Nova.indd 29

keen to retain the trademark arches on the aft main deck, so we also had to ensure that any new styling elements connected well with that part of the superstructure. The brief called for more headroom on the sundeck. So the arches mirror those in the stern and provide a ceiling height of 2.5m, in addition to great views and protection from the elements. The sundeck is now semi-enclosed with sliding glass windows both in front and along the sides. The yacht is even faster than the 65m, and when you’re cruising along at 30-plus knots, perhaps into the wind, you obviously need some protection.”

Galactica Super Nova will make her official début at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show after a busy summer season in the Mediterranean.

Hull Hue In terms of hull design and exterior styling, the 70m—and the 65m before it—represent a departure from Heesen’s production and signature styling to date. According to Mark Cavendish, Director Sales and Marketing at Heesen, “The 70m, of course, utilises the same Fast Displacement Hull Form as Galactica Star, a concept by Van Oossanen Naval Architects that we were the first to put into production. But

with the addition of water jets, the new yacht will be even faster than the 65m. This would simply not be achievable with a traditional displacement hull. Heesen has been building fast yachts since 1978 and during that time we’ve become a world leader in the field. With exterior design by Espen Oeino and interior design by Sander Sinot, the 70m is both an evolution of Heesen’s

long experience in the superyacht sector, but also the result of specific research into what the market wants and expects. Galactica Star, and now the 70m Super Nova, are the result of what Heesen perceive as a growing demand for fast transit speeds combined with the high level of comfort and space associated with displacement cruising.

Market Demands Beyond faster displacement speeds, the added value that the 70m FDHF project offers prospective owners, as well as how this meets the demands of today’s market, is clear. “Beach clubs have become something of a trend, but I believe Heesen was one of the first to build a dedicated beach club space on the lower aft deck that is just as luxurious as other areas of the boat. On the 65m and now on the 70m, by moving the tenders into garages in the forward part of the hull, we’ve developed a fantastic space that allows owners and their guests to enjoy a lifestyle closer to the water,” states Mr Cavendish. Other key features include a larger than average swimming pool that has a contra flow system for swimming and an integrated Jacuzzi

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Galactica Super Nova.indd 31

for relaxing, while the glass bottom allows extra natural light into the beach club below. There’s also a forward helipad that doubles as dance floor and an elevator that connects all the deck levels, which makes moving around the yacht much easier for elderly or mobility-challenged guests.

Future Vision The increasing size of production witnessed at Heesen clearly reflects the company’s strengths and focus for the future. “The production processes are handled in-house using our own facilities and staff, from hull and superstructure assembly, to engineering, electrical installation, painting and even the high-end interior fit-out. This means we can take on projects such as the 65m and 70m with relative ease and confidence. Today, for example, we’re building twelve yachts in-house, the largest of which is the 70m and the smallest

is 42m. We feel well-positioned to dominate this sector of the motor yacht market where style and speed, efficiency and performance, work in harmony with our clients’ exacting requirements to create something truly special.”

Behind the Scenes From the very First concepts and naval architecture to the interior design, the challenge is always to remain focussed on the final product, keeping the owner’s wishes at heart.


ur number one challenge when a client orders a yacht is to make their dream come true,” states peter van der Zanden, General manager of design and development at heesen yachts. “We work closely with them throughout the design process to incorporate their desires while ensuring the highest level of quality even if this means making changes late in the design process.”

The revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form, designed in 3D with Dassault Systèmes’ solutions allows Galactica Star and the Galactica Super Nova to perform more efficiently over a wider range of speeds.

Heesen Yachts adopted Dassault Systèmes’ solutions including 3D modeling application CATIA to allow naval architects to create, analyse, modify, and optimise the interior design more rapidly and accurately.

3 2 | S Y I 2 0 1 6 | Volum e 11 | Issue 3

in a demanding luxury yacht market, flexibility, and the ability to collaborate with clients from the earliest stages, are extremely important. “our old 2d design methods and tools were just not up to scratch when it came to dealing with the complexities of large custom-built luxury yacht design,” mr van der Zanden stated. “everything must be more: more room, more comfort, more amenities, and more luxury – except when it comes to delivery times. this always has to be less. all this makes things very complex for us. We needed more power from our software solutions and dassault systèmes’ solutions, including catia 3d modeling applications, was the answer. Keonys, a dassault systèmes partner, helped us to successfully implement the software. the

relationship between our three companies is a strong one.”

Multi-Discipline Collaboration luxury yachts are like floating five-star hotels and require the collaborative effort of many disciplines to design the structure, engines, piping, interior and exterior layout and amenities. “our design, engineering and production people collaborate in a common environment, exchanging ideas and making modifications on the fly,” mr van der Zanden comments. Working in 3d is a major advantage. “designs are clearer so people can more easily express their ideas,” according to mr van der Zanden. “We can show our production department the most optimised assembly sequences with instructions generated using the interactive 3d visualisation and animation capabilities. catia also helps us to optimise the use of space inside the vessel. since every discipline works on the same model in real time, they can make any necessary adjustments before sending the designs to production, saving valuable time all round.” space inside any yacht is limited and must be shared between the various disciplines

Complex Customisation Building a one-of-a-kind yacht like the Galactica star and the Galactica super nova poses many challenges. “one of the biggest is managing the vessel’s many designed and assembled parts,” said Jos verbruggen, manager of shipbuilding engineering at heesen yachts. “every part has its own strength, stiffness, and vibration requirements, which makes it unique but also very complex to design and manage. We can’t just take a part from another boat and use it in this yacht. to assemble all these parts, catia helped ensure a smooth assembly sequence by enabling us to first verify in a virtual

environment that parts fit together without interference. it was a clear illustration of successful inter-disciplinary collaboration, working simultaneously in 3d to produce the optimum design before releasing it to production. in essence, it was right the first time,” mr verbruggen said.

Unique experiences and fresh driving sensations guaranteed

includes a third engine generating a total power up to 900hp. while gliding in the bathing island mode (trimaran) a speed of 10 km/h / 5 kn ensures safety and comfort. in standard driving mode (catamaran), speeds of 70 km/h /38 kn can be reached. while flying in hydrofoil mode, the speed is physically limited to 70 km/h / 38 kn due to cavitation effects. The minimum range of 200km (108nm) can be extended by expandable fuel tanks.

Making Dreams Come True The production of the first edition of the K7 is limited to only 50 masterpieces and is already well underway with the first vessels to be delivered in spring 2017. The design of every single K7 can be fully tailor-made. The Kormaran clientele includes royal families, superyacht and private island owners, search and rescue-, coast guard- and other governmental authorities. Founded in 2010 in salzburg by dr. Oliver Kormann and his wife Jutta Kormann, the company´s success is based on most acknowledged Austrian and

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Kormaran.indd 39

german carbon fiber-, hydraulics-, hydrofoiland software specialists. “Our design is driven by function and emotion while most of the functions are hidden, the emotions are clearly visible, creating permanent values,” states Kormaran inventor, designer and Owner, Oliver Kormann. To meet customer’s expectations, the company´s production site in salzburg is currently being extended by a second assembly line for governmental contractors. delivery commitments can be met due to long term and sustainable Austrian and german supplier relationships with the automotive, marine and aviation industries.

Driving the Beauty unique experiences and fresh driving sensations are to be expected when gliding, driving or flying the K7. The performance with its mighty jet beam propulsion is topped by the futuristic and elegant design. The separate joystick allows for easy and intuitive one-hand manoeuvring in cramped environments like harbours and marinas. with its adjustable height and the newly designed carbon

fiber bathing ladder the K7 enables its owners to get on and off effortlessly. passengers can enjoy chilling on the comfortable and spacious sun bathing island under the adjustable bimini sun sails, which are available in different versions capable of covering the bathing platform, the cockpit or both. Lounge cushions and cosy sun mattresses complement the equipment.

SupplierS and cuStomerS working together very often StrengthenS the market position of both. a good example of this within the superyacht industry is the close relationship between pascoe international and fender innovations.

4 0 | S Y I 2 0 1 6 | Volum e 11 | Issue 3

Pascoe.indd 40


ender innovations started producing fenders in 2012. Since then, it has acquired an excellent reputation for the development and production of high-quality fender systems. the products of fender innovations are well known for being stronger and lighter than any other fender, leading to operational cost savings. the specifications are adjusted per product to suit individual requirements. together with the flexible manufacturing process, this results in an elegant design, with an unlimited choice of dampening

characteristics, shapes and sizes. the fenders are produced with a special topcoat, which can provide various degrees of resilience. it is also possible to create sections of up to 18.5m with seamless curves as one single piece.

Raising the Standard originally, the company targeted the workboat market, but for years superyacht builders, including pascoe international have been relying on fender innovations too. with pascoe

w w w. s u p e r ya ch t-i n d u s tr y. co m

01-09-16 15:00


facilitating the launch of the company onto the superyacht market, fender innovations succeeded in further raising the standard of their quality, leading to a broad range of customers in the luxury market. in addition to this development, fender systems are now supplied to more than 25 countries for both new and existing (work) vessels such as lifeboats, fast crew suppliers, riBs, patrol boats, interceptors, water taxis, amphibious vehicles and firefighting boats.

Pascoe.indd 41

to keep up with customer demands, fender innovations moved to a new plant at the end of 2015 and now operates two large, innovative five-axis computer-controlled milling machines. development and manufacture of the fenders is supplemented by fender installation, maintenance and repair by a specialised service department. recently, a new skill has been added: the manufacture of moulds and plugs for the

fabrication of shipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hulls and decks up to a length of 14m. cooperation between the companies is now about to enter a new phase as pascoe is also looking forward to commissioning the preparation of moulds for essential composite parts. this means that potentially fender innovations may supply the full external envelope of pascoeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s luxury tenders in anticipation of a high level of installation and fitting out.

Tried and Tested pascoe international specialises in providing semi and fully-customised tenders to the world’s superyachts. with more than ten years in the superyacht market, and circa 200 superyacht tenders in active service, success is attributed to experience and dependability. the company’s headquarters is home to a talented and experienced team, assigned to design and build reliable and beautifully-appointed tenders to fully match the intended mothership and to provide trouble-free service throughout the world. a unique feature is that most of the tenders supplied are based on tried-and-tested platforms. this offers the prospective owners the assurance that the tenders have been optimised to suit passenger loads, that they are capable of the required performance and that they provide a safe, dry and comfortable ride. using dependable platforms does not mean that the tenders all look alike. they are usually heavily customised to match the mothership. whether based on a developed platform or custom-built, each tender is individually crafted, in many cases with an interior commissioned from the yacht’s outfitters and built with meticulous attention to detail. however elegant and luxuriously appointed, superyacht tenders must first and foremost be reliable, dependable and able to meet all the

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Pascoe.indd 43

expectations of a busy superyacht, be it for the owners’ requirements or for a charter. today, a full range of tenders is offered from 5.5m to 11m, SolaS rescue boats, crew boats, guest and water sports boats, performance tenders, open and closed limousine tenders and beach landers. as propulsion and battery technology develop, pascoe anticipates that full electric, hybrid and fuel-cell technologies may be taken up by tender manufacturers keen to meet the owners’ aspirations for green technology, silent operation and reduced emissions. the company has a dedicated team that is constantly looking into advances in these areas and testing the implementation of alternative propulsion sources within the required weight and performance parameters. there is also further emphasis on the 100% adoption of cnc machining of all the essential components for maximum accuracy, weight control and fit between all the various parts. pascoe international is heading in the same direction as car manufacturers, assembling precision components sourced from all around the world. as such, precision-moulded composite elements, which can accept cncmachined fenders from fender innovations are already being used, just as easily as glass from companies such as tilse in germany.

A Perfect Collaboration pascoe international is one of the first companies to rely on fender innovations for the 100% custom hand build and cnc-milled fenders for their larger limousine and landau tenders. the close collaboration extends well beyond just the supply of precisely machined and finished fender elements, to indeed the exchange of ideas and techniques for installation to ensure precise alignment with key features and to provide maximum support and reliability.

At 61m, Just J’s is the lArgest superyAcht lAunched by hAkvoort so fAr. this wAs mAde possible by the yArd’s 2012 expAnsion of its mAin production shed in monnickendam, the netherlands to 65m. being in a select club of vessels in her size range to feature five decks, Just J’s has a huge volume and a stunning layout.


ust J’s demonstrates a distinctive overall style and exceptional attention to detail topped off with an extraordinary technical foundation. three of Holland’s leading exponents of superyacht design and construction are behind Just J’s. built by the expert craftsmen and engineers at Hakvoort shipyards, she features an exterior and interior design coming from the drawing boards of sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, while her naval architecture was provided by Diana Yacht Design. Just J’s showcases striking design features and as well as the latest in sophisticated technology.

Streamlined Allure “there are several striking elements in Just J’s overall profile,” explains sander J. sinot of sinot Exclusive Yacht Design, who directed the project and worked on it together with designer Paul Costerus. “Despite the large windows in the main deck forward section, the yacht has an elongated look. Just J’s is 61m long, but looks longer on the water because of her partially closed foredeck and the balance between the superstructure and the hull. this is enhanced by the style of the mast and the sundeck, with the comparably large observation area on the sundeck. Hakvoort project manager Marc van Ditshuizen agrees: “Just J’s looks and feels as a marvellously integrated whole. lots of

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Hakvoort Just J.indd 45

quality deck furniture combines with wonderful teak decks into a lovely composition. and while she has a huge amount of volume, Just J’s remains streamlined and elegant on the outside – one would hardly guess she is 61m long.”

Coherence and Style “the unifying style of this tale of five decks is contemporary modern overall,” Mr Costerus of sinot Exclusive Yacht Design says. the owners wanted to create a yacht atmosphere combined with the informal feel one finds in beach houses. Connecting the outside with the interior of every lounge and every stateroom is important. We created spectacular lines of vision in every direction, with large windows providing grand views to the outside. this was a major part of the

brief, and it worked out particularly well on this project.” all of the decks have a coherent theme inside and out, with lounges and exteriors in sync with each other in terms of both colour references and degree of comfort. on each deck, the colour tones are a cohesive whole, even when materials and fabrics differ in degree of sophistication – the master stateroom has 100% raw silk in the panelling, for example, while the hallways are clad in much more durable linen. While the feel of each space is distinctive, they are all clearly themed by deck. “We did not need every single space on the yacht to be completely unique,” Mr Costerus continues. “they are all recognisable as


S Y I 2016 | Vo l u me 11 | I s s u e 2 | 4 5

01-09-16 14:00


belonging to Just J’s and the materials and the architectural detailing are consistent throughout.”

The Main Deck Just J’s main deck features four guest cabins, the VIP suite, the pantry, the dining room and the salon. This positioning of these accommodations, coupled with the very large windows, ensures unbeatable views for the guests. The main deck is the most formal of the five levels on Just J’s, a fact demonstrated in both materials and colours. Deep blue and silver tones are apparent in elements ranging from the scatter pillows to the carpets, as well as the exterior seating. The main lounge at the aft extremity of the deck connects to the dining room further forward through a seating area. The prevailing colour scheme of the deck is complemented in the dining room by off-white dining chairs and a settee. Fourteen people fit round the formal dining table, and the spaciousness of the dining room is accentuated by its edges. Twin stairs lead down from the aft end to the lazarette and gym on the lower deck.

Further forward on the main deck, past the central staircase, is the main lobby which is the gateway to the guest quarters. the main lobby is flanked to port by the viP suite, which sports a king-sized bed. the four guest cabins are further forward: three of them have queen-sized beds and the fourth features twin berths. all have spacious bathrooms in luxurious materials with different colour schemes. the toilets are in separate rooms from the marble showers, and there are twin sinks in the viP suite and the two guest cabins closest to it.

Height of Luxury located above the main deck, the owners’ deck is taken up by the private areas and a lounge. the open area on the aft deck consists of a comfortable dining space centred on a large circular table. the lounge further forward has the ambiance of a gentlemen’s club, complete with well-furnished bar, and is characterised by moodier colours such as reds and oranges. as on the main deck, the colour scheme is reflected in the cushions and upholstery as well as the carpets and exterior furniture. the lounge connects to the crew staircase through a large pantry to port. Forward of the lounge is the owners’ deck hallway with the main staircase and a day head, which links to the owners’ suite. going into the suite, one first enters the master state hallway to starboard. this links to two individual dressing rooms, which in turn lead to separate bathrooms, one of which has a large bathtub. a separate door leads from the hallway to the master bedroom. this huge, semi-circular room is bordered on three sides by windows, which open onto the owners’ private deck forward with Jacuzzi and breakfast nook. the master bedroom is capped with a dome-shaped ceiling consisting of concentric circles ending in a skylight. Paul Costerus of sinot Exclusive Yacht Design explains: “one can lie in bed and look up at the stars. Combined with the windows all around, this ensures an almost unlimited view of the ocean and the sky. You feel like you are outside, at one with the environment.”

Flying High Just J’s’ bridge deck consists of a large outdoor lounge aft with multiple comfortable seating areas. this is adjacent to the indoor

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Hakvoort Just J.indd 47

lounge, which is anaccomplished area for family socialising and tv watching – there is a screen that is easily large enough for a small cinema. “the colour scheme consists largely of aqua tones and more vivid green-blues,” Mr Costerus says. “this was specified by the owners, who wanted it to be a sparkling, open and enjoyable place.”

Past the spectacular central staircase and lift is the captain’s cabin to starboard and office to port. Further forward, the bridge is reached through the office, which also opens onto the crew staircase. The equipment is state of the art – the bridge is fully electronic without paper charts and has seven screens and the latest monitoring equipment – two radars and an infrared camera for night vision and low visibility situations, as well as an overall monitoring system for the vessel. The bridge deck is very much connected to the sun deck above, which is characterised by blue-green and aqua tones. The lounge here has plenty of seating space underneath the arch, as well as a bar. The adjacent combination whirlpool bath and swimming pool features custom-made tiling designed by the owners.

Marvels Down Below Just J’s’ lower deck is as ingeniously designed as the rest of the yacht. The beautiful main lift and staircase shaft here opens onto a hallway which gives access to two guest cabins, a smaller twin room and one larger guest space consisting of a dedicated hallway, separate

www.s u p e r y a c h t - i n dustr y.c om

Hakvoort Just J.indd 49

bathroom and toilet, and bedroom with queensized bed. The crew staircase which flanks the main staircase opens onto the impressive crew spaces. It leads through a large pantry to the very well-equipped galley on the one hand, and through a hallway to the crew quarters on the other. There are eight crew cabins forward, six with ensuite and two with shared shower and toilet, and a stairwell leading down to the crew mess room and laundry.

Hi-tech Sensations Just J’s’ substantial length and very large volume required a number of pioneering technological applications. “The larger size has real impact in terms of regulations and implementation,” Hakvoort project manager Mr Van Ditshuizen points out. “Plumbing and piping is one example. Windows are another: due to their size and curvature, we had to solve major concerns related to pressure. We decided to source the windows from our specialised Dutch supplier, who normally delivers mirrors for us, and had them shaped in Germany.”

Another technological – not to mention aesthetic – triumph is the stunning central lift and staircase, which connects all the decks. The lift shaft was built separately and then lowered into the hull from above by crane, which required the roof of the construction shed to be removed.

ince the start of the company MULTI has been involved in over 25 basic and detail designs of superyachts for private owners and clients such as Amels, Oceanco and Heesen, with ten basic and detail designs of river, seagoing and arctic cruise vessels. The consistent growth MULTI Engineering has experienced, while simultaneously retaining its personal approach, is accredited to their devoting a great deal of attention to personal contact with their customers. A successful formula in their eyes, as the better they know their customers, the better they can anticipate their needs and requirements. There is also a clear drive to be a good employer to their engineers. “Effective support, good training, and a personal touch ensure that experts

SPECIAL FEATURE start each day keen to do their job,” states chief Operations Officer niko fierens.

In and Out from the beginning, MULTI have been able to offer their customers not only project sourcing services through their supply of skilled designers and engineers, but also the execution of projects in their own design and engineering offices. These are primarily concept, basic and detail designs of typical ships constructed and operated by belgian and dutch customers. since clients tend to outsource more and more, the number of requests for engineering support during the entire life cycle is increasing annually. changes externally call for changes internally. “To realise our strategic goals, we deemed it necessary to introduce a new organisational structure. we created a solid management team to support our three directors. At all our locations we now have one sales Manager and one design & Engineering Manager specifically for the Maritime & Offshore market. In combination with centralised Hr support, we have created a real ‘One MULTI group’ with only one approach: the one that serves our customers best,” states Mr fierens.    

Imminent Focus

Over a 20-year span, MULTI has grown into an engineering group with seven offices employing over 300 people in three countries. According to Mr fierens, “we intend to continue this growth in a sustainable way while developing further into the same emerging markets as our current group of customers, but always into markets that are also geographically close enough, being complementary to our current engineering playing field. we will only invest in new office infrastructure if it clearly serves to benefit our customers, e.g. if physical presence close to the production facilities is necessary in order to enhance communication lines during projects. One of the interesting market developments we see is the creation of floating, luxurious residential units to possibly replace shore hotel infrastructure like the Orsos Island concept.”

This Island concept combines a personal atmosphere, the experience of being ‘at one’ with nature and the mobility of a yacht with the comfort of a terrestrial home. The Island has been especially developed for private use as well as for the exclusive hotel industry.

With a length of more than 88m, my Nirvana (built under yard no. Y707) is one of the biggest yachts built to date by Oceanco. It features a clipperesque bow and a distinctive curved hull. MULTI Engineering has delivered engineering packages for more than 12 OCEANCO hulls and piping systems so far.

Success Factors MULTI’s philosophy is to enable their customers to be successful. According to Mr fierens, “That is why we provide customised engineering services, either by delivering design and engineering scopes as a subcontractor, by outsourcing expert engineers to our customers, or by supplying advice and consultancy to asset-owners and shipyards. That is why we employ skilled engineers and focus on their further development. what customers say they like about MULTI is our fast response, our flexibility and the fact that we understand their business and what they find important.”

OUTFITTERS PAGES New Anti-Slip / Walk-On Glass

Light, Strong and Flexible Multifender has introduced a new fender onto the market. The Multifender’s lightweight carbon fibre basements make it extremely strong, and with its easy handling it is practical for use with any kind of swim platform or tender dock. There are three versions of this flexible tender: the Premium with its adjustable carbon hinge, which protects in three dimensions; the Prime, with its twodimensional protection and rolling foam bumper, and the Classic seawaterresistant foam fender which protects forwards and starts at 4.5kg. i.

XT23 Added to Mastercraft’s Range Anti-slip, walk-on glass deck surfaces for marine applications are being researched by Seaglaze and a major float glass manufacturer. Horizontal surfaces (such as deck walkways and hatches, windows etc.) where light may be required underneath will particularly benefit from this new invention. Owners will have the security of knowing they have a certified, non-slip finish to their deck surfaces and marine closures. The glass is available in three thicknesses and three designs and, thanks to Seaglaze’s own factory and expertise in Full Colour Digital Ceramic Printing onto Glass, there are endless possibilities regarding finish. i.

Recent Changes at Palumbo A step in the expansion of Palumbo Superyachts has been taken in its acquisition of a fifth shipyard, this time outside the Mediterranean basin, in Tenerife. This strengthens their current repair, construction, modification and maintenance activities in Napoli and Messina. Furthermore, Columbus Yachts (the Palumbo Group’s own range of superyachts) has received Boat International Media’s World Superyacht Award in the Semi-Displacement&Three Deck 30m – 40.9m category for the MY Divine. Also in the news, Polumbo Group has appointed Daniela Spinelli, who began her career in the US Navy, as their new Marketing and Communications Manager. i.

The XT23 multi-sport crossover machine is designed to facilitate every water sport. The intuitive digital dashboard interface registers the size and shape of the wake required for whichever watersport desired – waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, towsports of tubing. The award-winning Gen 2 Surf System guarantees consistent speed, generating perfect wake conditions. The XT23 has been designed to create maximum interior space and accommodates up to sixteen guests. The dozen-or-so upgrades for the 2017 models will give owners numerous possibilities for customisation. i.

Customised Efficiency

Arcadia Yachts has recently added the Sherpa to its GRP range. This 16.8m-long ‘forward thinking design’ yacht, with its exceptional 5.6m beam and incredible 7m3 volume, is compact but incorporates all the features of larger yachts in the same range. The layout is flexible, with options including a spacious owner’s suite, two or three cabins and even extra areas of shade in consideration of the Asian market. Suitable for both day cruising and longrange ocean cruising, practically 100% of all onboard energy is derived from solar panels. Together with her lightweight, high-performance, semidisplacement NPL hull, the Sherpa combines elegance, practicality and environmental awareness. i.

LEEA Certification for Spanish Riggers RSB Rigging Solutions are one of the few Spanish rigging companies to have been awarded the LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) general diploma. Furnished with this diploma, RSB is now able to officially survey weight lifting equipment on yachts.
