This week we heard a series of exciting developments from Videoworks, the prolific Italian AV and IT systems provider at the very forefront of superyacht innovation. In light of the pandemic, Videoworks has been hard at work innovating a solution which provides for the adapted measures of modern yachting. The result is something totally unprecedented; a uniquely centralised solution, dubbed Key Core Technology, which renders the technological demands of yachting simpler than ever before.
As we come to the tail end of a year of isolation, with human interaction relegated exclusively to the online sphere, social media influencers have arguably never been more… influential. But does influence equate to actual, industry power? Norwegian Instagrammer Denis Suka (@theyachtmogul), who recently teamed up with yacht designer Bhushan Powar to release his own superyacht concept, would certainly say so.
Turquoise Yachts has confirmed that construction is well underway on the 51m Classic Sloop Rainbow II. Rainbow II pays homage to the era of the big classic yachts of the early 1900s, offering a back-to-the-roots classical sailing experience packed with contemporary comfort features.
Feadship has given an exclusive insight into the in-construction Project 3249, an exciting custom superyacht with Feadship DNA throughout. Sipke Halbertsma, commercial director at Feadship America, and designer Chris Bottoms sat down to discuss the unique features of a superyacht perfectly tailored to a client’s needs and desires.
One consistent theme of yacht design is that of the optimisation of space. Nowhere does this theme prove more challenging or rewarding than the 24-30m length bracket. We take a closer look at the latest project to come from Italian designer and architect Stefano Pastrovich, best known for his work on 104m Le Grand Bleu or the 36m Wallypower. Pastrovich’s latest undertaking on the 27m Atlantico, support vessel to the 55m Atlante, provided a fresh challenge and new focus to the proficient Monaco-based studio. The outcome serves as an interesting case study for its maximisation of internal volume and layout.
With a sleek yet formidable profile, the 95m project unveiled this week by T Fotiadis Design is advanced, sustainable, and a marvel of modern design and engineering. Ultra2 will make use of cutting-edge methanol fuel cells for battery charging and an all-electric propulsion, in Chief Designer and Founder Theodoros Fotiadis’ quest to build a superyacht for a truly visionary owner.
