Here is the inspiration behind every one of our 13,000 beautifully built boats. This is how we differentiate ourselves from the crowd. How we explain our colourful and successful past. It’s by respecting this past that we are able to approach the future with genuine insight, ingenuity and creativity. Time spent with our customers is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding aspects of our business. From the moment they meet us to the day they take delivery of their dream. We value every moment spent discussing the individual requirements of all of our customers, but there comes a time when we have to intensify our level of personal service. And that is

when our customers specify one of our larger models with all the delightful complexities of choice that it brings. This became the basis of our Yacht Division, created to support your Fairline dealership and to take their excellent service a stage further. When you invest in one of our more exclusive models, namely the Squadron 65 or 78 CUSTOM, you have every right to expect a specially aentive and exclusive level of service from us. LUXURY REDEFINED


world luxury | DAILY | Issue 48 |

Expect the Exceptional The way things look is as important to us as the way they work. To this end, our superyachts are not merely well engineered or beautiful... they are beautifully engineered. ‘Beauty is more than skin deep’ says the proverb, and this is certainly true at Blohm+Voss. We create refined, beautiful superyachts by examining every detail of the proposed vessel and finding an engineering solution that enhances its efficiency and its beauty.


Our ruthless pursuit of perfection drives our determination to deliver a cra that is nothing less than exceptional. Throughout the yacht, we apply smarter thinking based on our obsession with quality and our appreciation of beauty. The result is a seaworthy, noteworthy superyacht that delivers the ultimate yachting experience for the owner, guests and crew.




Engineering During our 137-year history we have constructed over 980 vessels and built a vast store of shipbuilding knowledge. The average age of our engineers is higher than usual and many have been with us for most of their careers. Employing such a loyal, well-established team strengthens our policy of building and retaining knowledge inside the company, rather than outsourcing our engineering activity.

At the same time, our valuable bank of knowledge has helped us establish fruitful long-term relationships with the most proficient specialist subcontractors. A benefit of our longevity and depth of experience is that our engineers are adept at reacting to issues that in less knowledgeable hands could scupper a superyacht build schedule. We can turn the most innovative design concepts into smoothly-efficient reality and deal with complex engineering challenges. LUXURY REDEFINED


world luxury | DAILY | Issue 48 |

Construction To us, construction is much more than the ‘build’ in shipbuilding. It is integrated into every stage of every project, from the initial contract discussions to the pre-delivery sea trials. Working in close cooperation with our engineering, purchasing and project management specialists, our 360-strong construction team helps define time-scales, build techniques and costs. This system works.

| 10 |

The Blohm+Voss yacht voted ‘Motor Yacht of the Year’ in 2011 was hailed by the annual Superyachts book as “A supreme example of the superyacht industry’s design and construction genius”. Genius or not, we have been perfecting our construction skills for many, many years. We pioneered the use of self-combusting engines in grand yachts, we built the first yacht with an anti-roll stabiliser and we built the first yachts divided into multi-compartment sections with centrally operated fire and flood doors.


Project Jazz Project Jazz is a highly individual masterpiece created by the renowned architect Zaha Hadid in partnership with the naval engineering team from Blohm+Voss. Bowing and arching elements create an organic form that pushes the boundaries of yacht design, yet is technically feasible and practical for construction and eďŹƒcient operation.

There is a unique continuity between the interior and exterior areas – opening up layered, panoramic views and providing a coherent and monolithic feeling, as if folded from a single surface. LUXURY REDEFINED

This pricey 100-foot vessel was designed by world-renowned UK luxury designer Stuart Hughes, took over 3 years to complete and was purchased by an anonymous Malaysian businessman for a whopping $4.5 billion dollars!

Royal Jet, the Abu Dhabi-headquartered, awardwinning international luxury flight service provider, has taken delivery of a striking new 34 seat Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) in the latest phase of its fleet renewal programme. This exciting news comes on the heels of the company’s recent announcement of additions to its leadership team, tasked with guiding the company into a new era. This unique new BBJ aircra boasts a front-end bedroom, eight VIP, eight business class and 18 standard seats, and was received by the company’s Chairman – His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, its new Managing Director – His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, and its new President and CEO – Rob DiCastri. The interior of this one of a kind addition to the fleet was designed by New York based designer Edése Doret, known for his elegant and innovative layouts and for the use of distinctive materials such as the carbon fibre seen throughout this aircra. His design was then brought to life by industry leading outfier Luhansa Technik of Hamburg, Germany, who delivered this exceptional aircra on time and on budget. In terms of amenities, the aircra is equipped with the latest telecommunication and entertainment technology to meet the needs of the exclusive customer base of Royal Jet. This is the first BBJ worldwide with a KA Band Wi-Fi internet system installed, providing large bandwidth which enables services such as Netflix and IP based Live TV and download and upload speeds not seen before in the industry.

This aircra also features Enhanced Vision System (EVS) technology in the cockpit and Royal Jet is the first charter operator in the UAE to receive regulatory approval from the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) to use this capability. The EVS system enhances operational safety by using a stand-alone thermal imaging camera that sees infrared energy emiing or radiating from objects and helps pilots navigate beer in poor weather conditions. Royal Jet will take delivery of a second new BBJ – the sister ship to this current delivery – later this month as part of the fleet renewal programme launched two years ago. In association with Boeing and other partners involved in this process, the company will be showing off one of these unique aircra, and possibly both, at the Middle East Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) Conference to be held at the beginning of December at Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport. These two deliveries will bring the overall Royal Jet fleet to 13 aircra and the BBJ count to 8, further extending the company’s position as the largest operator of Boeing Business Jets in the world.

The addition of these two amazing new aircra to our offering is a result of that consultation, as they have both the long range capability and the passenger and baggage capacity to fulfil various mission requirements, with interiors like no others available in the region.” David Longridge, President of Boeing Business Jets, added, “We at BBJ are thrilled to see this first-of-two new BBJs arrive in Abu Dhabi for service. At Royal Jet, just as they do with their customer base, Boeing Business Jets feels we have a strong and loyal customer, but we know Royal Jet itself has a choice as to which airplanes it buys. We’re honored they’ve chosen the BBJ, and we’re very impressed with their leadership in technology (with the EVS certification, amongst other things) and the innovation seen in the interior. We’re excited to see this airplane, and its ‘sibling’ enter reliable, award-winning service with Royal Jet as soon as possible, and we look forward to showcasing it at MEBAA in Dubai in just over two weeks.”

Rob DiCastri continued, “We are fortunate at Royal Jet to have a very loyal customer base, but we realize we’re not their only choice and so we’re commied to consistently exceeding their already high expectations of us in terms of safety, quality and service. The many partners we’ve been fortunate enough to work with on these aircra have helped us create something special

which will help us do that, and at the same time bring a new and exciting product to the market that we can deliver to various customers utilizing our royal pedigree. Our customers have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this aircra, and we have taken numerous bookings already, with the schedule filling up quickly. Utilization is the key to a successful business in this industry, so we are excited to get this aircra flying and contributing to our boom line. “In terms of our overall business,” he continued, “His Highness the Chairman, His Highness the MD and the entire leadership team at Royal Jet are looking to consolidate our position as the leading VVIP operator in the region, leverage our extensive current capabilities and unlock the untapped potential of the company. This includes further revenue diversification, along with expansion of our VVIP Charter, medical evacuation, aircra brokerage and FBO services. We are commied to growth, but in a smart, efficient way, which will allow us to maintain an unwavering focus on safety and service for the benefit of our customers while continuing our strong record of profitability for the benefit of our shareholders. “In short,” he concluded, “Change is in the Air at Royal Jet.”

Abu Dhabi is a city on the move. Not content with enjoying one of the world's richest oil reserves, the region has recently thrown itself into a massive programme of development. And one of the jewels in Abu Dhabi's crown is the new 5.55kilometre Yas Marina Circuit, which on November 1, 2009, hosted the country's inaugural Grand Prix. It was also the first F1 twighlight race, with powerful lighting ensuring a seamless transition from day to night.

| 72 |

Located on the spectacular Yas Island, the track is set to revolutionise the design of future Formula One circuits. Boasting top speeds of 320 km/h and average speeds of 195 km/h, it features nine right turns and 12 le turns and is one of the few venues on the calendar to run in an anti-clockwise direction.

Designed by renowned circuit architect Hermann Tilke, Yas Marina has a waterfront seing scenic enough to rival the likes of Monaco and Valencia. And with the track wrapping itself around the island's glamorous newly-built marina, there's plenty of mooring space for the paddock's plethora of yachts. Its distinctive design also boasts several innovative elements including the iconic five-star, 499-room Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi hotel, which straddles the circuit; the 60-metre solar powered Sun Tower, which offers unrivalled views for invited guests; and a pit lane which sees the cars exit via a tunnel passing under the track.


Another world ďŹ rst is that all of the grandstands, including the massive hairpin seating area, are covered to protect spectators from the desert sun, whilst the state-of-the-art pit building boasts 40 air-conditioned garages. Luxuriant comforts and ďŹ rst-rate views are clearly the watchwords for Abu Dhabi race goers.

The track itself was designed with racing in mind. As well as the waterside marina area, there are high-speed sections (including the longest straight on the F1 calendar), tight corners for overtaking, and even a twisty street circuit-style sector. Overall, its diverse elements come together to create one of the longest and most demanding tracks in the world, where close and competitive racing is guaranteed. LUXURY REDEFINED

Why go? It’s hard to find a more spectacular seing for a Grand Prix than Yas Island, on the eastern side of Abu Dhabi. It’s home to numerous 5-star hotels and the Ferrari Theme Park, and the 5.55kilometre (3.45-mile) Yas Marina Circuit is a suitably glamorous addition to the FIA Formula One World Championship. The track has many unique touches. It runs alongside the island’s spectacular marina; it passes under the new 5-star Yas Viceroy hotel and alongside a new 60-metre sun tower. The exit of the pit lane even crosses under the circuit.

| 74 |

“It's a very impressive facility and the track layout is fun, so it's a great place," says Williams driver Felipe Massa. "With Ferrari World just around the corner, the race has a strong Ferrari flavour." Away from Yas Island, Abu Dhabi has lots to offer. It’s the largest and wealthiest of the seven United Arab Emirates, with a crude oil supply that isn’t expected to run out until the 22nd century. Unlike some of its neighbours in the Gulf, Abu Dhabi has retained its local traditions and charms, making it an enjoyable and interesting stop-off.


Did you know? Abu Dhabi is the world’s richest city. The average net worth of the 420,000 permanent citizens is US$17 million. Useful tips With the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix being near the end of the season, the weather conditions are not too extreme. Midday temperatures of between 25-30 degrees can be expected, but the grandstands are all covered - a ďŹ rst for a circuit anywhere in the world - so shade is easy to come by. LUXURY REDEFINED

Where to go? Abu Dhabi has a very cosmopolitan feel and there is something for everyone. There’s an eclectic mix of international cuisine to suit all budgets, starting at the Emirates Palace (for a time the world’s most expensive hotel) down to the cafe culture that prevails throughout the Middle East. For traditional Abu Dhabi cuisine, head to the area surrounding the fish market in Abu Dhabi city. There are plenty of other tourist aractions. If you want local culture, why not head to the camel market in Al Ain or the Abu Dhabi falcon hospital. And, of course, there is the aforementioned Ferrari Theme Park, covering 250,000 square metres and featuring a G-Force Tower, driving schools for children and adults, high-tech theatres and lots of cars on display.

From 2012 there'll be even more of an international flavour in Abu Dhabi, with the opening of the Louvre Abu Dhabi, the first Louvre museum outside France. Where to stay? All the best hotel chains are in Abu Dhabi - and many of them on Yas Island - so you can expect to be looked aer wherever you go. Most of the F1 luminaries stay in the 5-star Yas Viceroy hotel, which is just a short walk from the F1 paddock. But for those looking for more modest surroundings, there are cheaper options available in Abu Dhabi city.


Extended stay Once you’ve checked out Abu Dhabi city, why not head out into the Rub Al Khali desert, which is known locally as 'The Empty Quarter'. Only a short distance from the city limits, you’ll find yourself surrounded by sand dunes. The town of Al Ain is another popular tourist destination. It’s regarded as the spiritual heart of Abu Dhabi, having been built on seven oases and inhabited for more than 3,000 years. It’s on the Tentative List of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.

Enthusiasts only There’s plenty to see at Yas Marina Circuit, aside from watching Formula One cars. There’s drag racing and an off-road driving centre, and you can test your own skills at a state-of-the-art kart centre. If you think your technique needs some work, there’s even a driving school for you to aend. bi.html LUXURY REDEFINED

Paying tribute to Ulysse Nardin’s rich history with the sea, the timepieces of the Marine collection are the ultimate expression of technical performance and beautiful design. Ulysse Nardin would come to engineer its own renaissance, becoming revered once again for its revolutionary developments in Haute Horlogerie. In 1846, in Le Locle, Switzerland, young watchmaker Ulysse Nardin had a vision of the future. Despite living miles from the sea, he was convinced of two things: a rising demand for marine and pocket chronometers, and his ability to meet that demand.

| 94 |

He was right on both counts, and Ulysse Nardin navigational timepieces would come to set the standard for precision in both civil and military realms, and establish his company for generations to come.By the 1870s, over 50 navies and international shipping companies were equipped with Ulysse Nardin marine deck chronometers, providing sailors instruments for accuracy and eďŹƒciency across trades and continents. When he died in 1876, his son, Paul-David Nardin, took control, ensuring Ulysse Nardin's continued quest for technical innovation. By 1975, the company had 4,300 watchmaking awards to its illustrious name, including 18 international gold medals, as well as a great number of technological patents.

The reason AMELS has become the largest Dutch superyacht builder is because we know it's not just about the yacht, it's about creating the opportunity for shared experiences and wonderful memories with your loved ones. Our repeat clients return to AMELS because they know the AMELS experience is more than owning a yacht, it’s the door to a more enriched way of life.

PERFECT MOMENTS It was at the launch party for their new yacht, when for the first time in many years the owner danced with her husband; that was the moment when she fully appreciated just what fun and joy the ownership of an AMELS yacht would bring to her – and her family.

Living life, your way, on your terms.

YOUR MASTERPIECE The experiences, the never-to-be-forgoen moments, are more important than the yacht itself. We understand that. But we also know that over time you will fall in love with the yacht herself. We have seen this happen many times.

When the Amels 272 is launched, not only will she become the largest in the limiTed ediTiONs range, she will be the largest amels yacht ever built. Tim Heywood seized the opportunity created by the length of the hull to draw one of his sleekest profiles yet, the long decks accentuating the beautiful lines, aswell as creating some wonderful outdoor spaces.

| 102 |

With a gross tonnage of 2800 GT, the larger scale makes it possible to create many exciting features on this 83-metre, not least a dedicated owner’s deck measuring42m long with total deck area of more than 300 sqm. it means that the five generously proportioned guest cabins can all be located on the main deck, where they might otherwise be situated on lower deck. Guests will

really appreciate the large windows in their cabins, and being situated on the same deck and just a few steps away from the swimming pool, 5.5 by 3.5 metres. Although the amels 272 will be the largest model in the limiTed ediTiONs range, senior designer Jaap van der Velde says the project size is well within the capabilities and experience of the organisation, as well as the subcontractors and co-makers who all have extensive knowledge of this scale of project. “We are very fortunate that amels is part of the dameN Group, and the fact that we work very closely in marine research and development in ongoing partnerships with universities including the Technical University in del, mariN and TNO,” he says. “We have an


incredible synergy with these academic organisations and also with our co-makers and subcontractors, with whom we have built up a strong understanding and close working relationships over many years. “The big challenge for us at amels is that we will never compromise on the aesthetics of the yacht,” says van der Velde. “With a yacht of these proportions we don’t have to do that. in so many ways it gives us much more space to work with.” Looking through the design plans for the amels 272 fills van der Velde with excitement. “The connection between the interior and the outside living areas will work beautifully.

“There is garage space for two large tenders of 11 metres each, and lots of storage space for all kinds of water toys and scUBa diving equipment. We have really enjoyed the design process because the scale of the amels 272 has given us the freedom to create a yacht that can offer almost anything you could hope to experience on a superyacht.” LUXURY REDEFINED

CHRIST All Christensen yachts are built with the finest composite materials available. Our cuing-edge construction process includes large-scale vacuum infusion coupled with proprietary in-house techniques to create a strength-to-weight ratio seven times stronger than steel and solid laminate. This makes all Christensen yachts true deep water, transoceanic global explorers. The superior strength of infused composite construction is shown in the photo to the right. When balanced between two points on bow and

| 112 |

stern inferior construction methods will cause other hulls to buckle as much as eight inches, while hulls built at Christensen have a barely measurable deflection.

Composite hulls are fully insulated, thus eliminating the “double boiler” effect, especially in warmer cruising climates, which in solid laminate and metal boats results in significant condensation that can lead to corrosion, damage of interior finishes and mold infestation. In


TENSEN addition, the foam-cored structure of Christensen construction provides a natural absorption of mechanical and structural energy that significantly reduces shipboard noise transmission and vibration. Fiberglass construction results in significantly less maintenance, freeing the crew to focus on keeping the yacht running like a five star hotel. Metal hulls oen result in blistering, rust, corrosion and the growth of mold. Every captain

and yacht manager knows that the success of the yacht for its owner and guests relies on its crew. With more crew man-hours available to enhance the yachting experience, a composite fiberglass boat offers a distinct advantage in overall success for the vessel. LUXURY REDEFINED

As with all of a yacht’s handcraed components, upholstery is standard on every Christensen. LUXURY REDEFINED

A unique schedule and stunning cityscape are only side aractions: the Dubai International Boat Show is the Middle East’s most important boat show. Unlike most boat shows that start at the crack of dawn, the Dubai boat show opens in the aernoon and goes onto in the night. It makes sense given the hot desert weather, but it also creates a nice leisurely pace for this rapidly growing yacht show. The show seems to be growing every year, with organisers reporting that this year the fiveday event hosted 28,273 visitors in 2015, which was a 19 per cent increase from the 2014 Dubai boat show.

AN ITALIAN STORY Founded in 1975 by the Dini family, Paul & Shark is today synonymous with Italian elegance and style, with its Men's, Women's, Children's and Accessories collections available in 73 dierent countries.

A YACHTING COLLECTION This collection dates back to the mid-1970s, when Paul & Shark launched in the sports fashion sector with a collection inspired by the world of sailing and based on its elegance, performance and spirit of adventure.

THE BIRTH OF AN ICON In 1978 its C0P918 pullover was born: a sailing sweater that would go onto become an icon of the Paul&Shark style. Instantly recognisable from its packaging, a metal can used on board ships as a multi-purpose container, this garment saw immediate success and signalled the start of a whole new water repellent knitwear collection. ITALIAN DESIGN FROM HEAD TO TOE Over the years the company has expanded greatly to become a comprehensive luxury sportswear range, appreciated by the fans of Italian fashion and high-performance technical materials, many of which have been patented by Paul&Shark. A CHOICE OF STYLE Paul&Shark oers a comprehensive range of sportswear, smart casual and luxury clothing designed to meet both your professional and recreational styling needs.

TYPHOON 20000 THE TECHNOLOGY Typhoon 20000 is the innovative, patented treatment available exclusively from Paul & Shark that guarantees high waterproofing and windproofing in any weather condition, thanks to an ultraso membrane that prevents drops of water from penetrating the fabric. Through a revolutionary manufacturing process, every single square centimetre of this fully waterproof fabric is able to withstand a 20-metre column of water and gale force gusts of wind. To guarantee maximum comfort at all times, the membrane has been designed with a highly breathable molecular structure that favours air circulation and ensures maximum breathability and the dispersion of excess body heat.

One of the first reasons why an owner chooses an Azimut yacht is nearly always beauty. Then, the intrinsic values of the product come into play: its comfort, safety features, level of technology and elegant living solutions. Finally, owners want something more between the time of making their choice and the purchase. They want the boatyard that builds the yacht of their dreams to be able to boast a significant history, to have consolidated a network of services, to reflect a successful image and, above all, to be a sound company.

| 156 |

In all these aspects, Azimut Yachts can deliver results and guarantees of a true industry leader. A luxury yacht has value if that value is longlasting. If its beauty can challenge the seasons. If its style is a source of inspiration for those who are passionate about the sea, and not just a fashion follower. The design of Azimut yachts shapes the Italian essence behind the brand. Each model in the Azimut range reflects the aention to detail and the style excellence of Italian manufacturing.



| 157 |

world luxury | DAILY | Issue 48 |

The construction of luxury yachts requires production efficiency, advanced technologies and an ability to innovate. Boat owners who choose Azimut choose luxury, hi-tech yachts, built at cuing-edge boatyards where the Group's investments in research culminate. Azimut-Benei's R&D Centre develops technologies that are unique worldwide, for an experience at sea that is effortless and safe. In fact Azimut's technologies are always designed to deliver safety and comfort to yacht owners.

| 158 |

Design, technology, materials, components and human expertise are all Azimut hallmarks that meet a higher standard: quality. This philosophy is possible because Azimut has put its income back into the company, over more than forty years, investing in personnel training, technological research, product development and the upgrading of plants and structures. Only in this way has it been possible to be the number one boatyard of choice worldwide for the construction of megayachts for 15 years.


Azimut 70 Twenty-two metres of magic that simply ooze grace and elegance and let you breathe between the blue of the sky and the sea and live every moment in peace, quiet and total relaxation. With its unmistakeable design, the Azimut 70 is an oasis in the sea. LUXURY REDEFINED

| 168 |

Darsena Italia can produce four 35-70 meter yachts concurrently and can also boast a dry dock and a helipad.Darsena Lucca can build three yachts at the same time up to 42 meters in length. A third, more recent, facility increases production capacity by six more yachts.


QUALITY Our mission is to deliver a product built to the highest quality standards recognised by the international megayacht industry. This is why we are meticulous in our application of the Benei Quality System, which comprises a pool of experts and specialist managers who perform over 1,000 quality checks and tests even on medium-sized yachts.

This is achieved by complying precisely with technical specifications, with the requirements of register and classification entities and, most importantly, with the Owner’s expectations, as interpreted by Benei through its construction capabilities and an Italian love of design. Aspiring to the highest technical and functional standards, without compromising on appearance and comfort, has always been one of Benei’s most important goals. LUXURY REDEFINED

CRAFTMANSHIP Viareggio has a centuries-old tradition of luxury yacht building. This is where the company began life, steeped in the local seafaring culture.

These skills, combined with the shipbuilding culture inherited from the time-honoured Livorno yard Cantieri Orlando, today underpin the excellence of the Benei production system, particularly in Livorno, and allow the company to look to the future with optimism.

For these reasons the heritage of crasmanship has developed naturally in Benei, nourished by the finest carpenters, metalworkers and marblecuers and drawing on a tradition which has honed skills more finely with every passing generation. LUXURY REDEFINED

MAKING THE FERRETTI YACHTS 960 – FLAGSHIP OF THE FERRETTI BRAND The Ferrei Yachts 960 is the largest planing yacht of the Ferrei Yachts range.

With its 29.20 metres of length overall and 23.98 metres of hull length it can be managed as a pleasure boat, even without a professional captain. Ferrei Yachts 960 features an unparalleled livability. It is the first yacht of the brand with the owner cabin located on the main deck and four cabins on the lower deck, with similar size and fiings.

Feadship is one of an elite group of yacht builders that can truly be said to create custom superyachts. Custom means starting every project literally with a blank page. It entails designing a bespoke superyacht that is entirely individual and unlike any other in the world. ‘Custom’ should never be confused with ‘customising’ – which actually involves tweaking an existing platform or concept. That is not our style at Feadship: we work with clients to create a one-off luxury motoryacht that exclusively and

| 190 |

uniquely reflects their character and use. However distinctive they may be, every Feadship ever launched has something in common: An inherent quality that you can only really feel when you step onboard. Traditional values are upheld in every discipline as the yards draw on an unrivalled heritage dating back to the nineteenth century. As time goes by, each Feadship sets a new benchmark for artistry and the use of technology to maximise comfort.



| 191 |

world luxury | DAILY | Issue 48 |

| 192 |

CARTE BLANCHE It is not just a name. It is what you have as a client. Feadship is one of the few shipyards in the world that can produce truly custom-made yachts. Starting from a blank sheet, we create your ideal yacht in any aesthetic style you desire.

And then there are the many other bespoke features both large and small that are inevitable when partnering with a very involved owner who knows exactly what he likes.

COMO On Como custom means an unprecedented use of glass panels all the way round the yacht, sliding windows on the flybridge and main deck that facilitate a wide range of outdoor/indoor scenarios, a radically different mast design, a rotating floor in the main lounge and an exceptionally large refrigeration capacity.

PERFECT CRAFTMANSHIP On Como, perfect crasmanship can be seen in her exterior metallic paint, which was praised by the class association as being truly unprecedented in its beauty. Inside and out, Feadship’s carpenters had a field day making the myriad small details and intricate design features in dark timber. Meeting the owner’s fondness for stainless steel was very challenging in places with countless super-thin strips required.


And the way this has all been blended with white marble to create a compellingly clean interior is, in itself, a true work of cra. INNOVATIONS On Como, innovation is instantly apparent in the pioneering use of glass. The extent of the challenge of using such giant glass structures with such immense curves cannot be overstated. The answer was to place the superstructure glass on top of the metal rather than seing it into it, creating a continuous surface.

The bulwark windows measure almost seven metres in length while the portholes in the hull are the maximum allowed under class for that location. Tests on the laer included dropping a steel ball from six metres onto the glass structure as well as the most stringent pressure tests. Como truly stretches the physical limitations of glass as they were understood anno 2014. LUXURY REDEFINED

| 193 |

world luxury | DAILY | Issue 48 |

EXTERIOR Como has a ‘two-and-a-half deck’ layout in order to incorporate the owner’s specific request for a climate-controlled flybridge that serves the raised pilothouse lifestyle he so enjoys. The wheelhouse is slightly recessed into the main deck structure, re-emphasising the speedy look & feel of the design while creating a gigantic outside deck. Combined with the awesome metallic hull and imposing mast design, it all makes for a truly magnificent sight.

| 194 |

SUNDECK The sun deck with the flybridge is the favourite spot of the owner. A wonderful party area for up to fiy people is completely covered and surrounded by glass, which can be lowered to facilitate a nice breeze or raised to create a giant terrace protected from the elements. A bimini with a composite beam slides out, removing the

need for fixed stanchions on the deck. The ventilation system also allows for heating as well as cooling for evenings when there is a slight chill. The choice of Macassar ebony for an outer deck is unusual and required some special lacquering solutions. Among the other highlights here are a pop-up TV, a “proper BBQ” to reflect the owner’s New Zealand roots, and a splendid marble-clad cocktail bar. The laer also contains provision for a crane as the sun deck is the MOB location when Como embarks on transatlantic trips. Meanwhile, the back end of the wheelhouse slopes down from the front into a fully equipped control station for outdoor helming. MAIN DECK Interior designers Redman Whiteley Dixon have devised a masculine yet calming ambience based primarily on high-gloss Macassar ebony, with white marble in the bathrooms and a more ornate


Nero Portoro marble for centrepieces such as the bar unit that straddles the sliding glass doors between the main lounge and the a deck. The ingenious sliding door mechanism allows this whole area, inside and out, to become one piece. The main deck is the most used when at sea. Its lounge is bathed in natural light while the ceiling is made out of real mirror-raised stainless steel. An ingenious seating circle rotates using air cushions depending on use: slide 90° to watch the 82-inch TV or swivel the other way to face the a deck and connect with the guests enjoying the dining area with dedicated sunshade. LOWER DECK Como’s lower deck is home to four delightful guest suites; two doubles a and two twins forward. All are spacious and the views from the beds which have been placed transversely instead of in the usual longitudinal paern are truly

spectacular, both when at anchor and at sea. The bathrooms feature a wealth of white marble from Greece that the owner originally saw at a friend’s house. Finding this same marble in sufficiently large slabs of the required quality was an enormous task for the Feadship team responsible. Let us end with a quote from the owner himself: “There wasn’t a single boat that led me to Feadship. Rather it was the pedigree and quality for which Feadship is renowned, which is a key component in the excellent resale value of Feadships. I have owned many boats in my life and the quality that I have received on Como is light years ahead of my previous boats.” LUXURY REDEFINED
