The Van der Valk BeachClub 600 yacht

Lots of windows and large social spaces make the new Van der Valk BeachClub 600 into a virtual glass home on water. Wealthy buyers can enjoy a new standard of comfort for on-board living in the small-yacht category.

Van der Valk BeachClub 600

Van der Valk’s new BeachClub 600 yacht brings the exterior into the saloon, while creating a record amount of volume, inside and out. With the launch of the aluminium 60-footer, the Dutch builder essentially created a new category of mid-sized yachts. 

Van der Valk BeachClub 600

The patent-pending engine room sits under the swim platform, allowed designer Cor D. Rover to designate an unusual percentage of volume, both inside and out, to social spaces. The foredeck boasts a total of 270 square feet for lounges, tables, and even a Jacuzzi. The 150-sqare-foot aft beach club is enormous for a yacht this size.

But buyers should peek inside for a taste of the most striking innovations, where they’ll find the two-tiered saloons and a large master suite. The upper saloon area has lounges around the helm. The lower area includes a full galley and dining area with direct access to the swim platform via curved, sliding doors. Van der Valk’s generous use of glazing across the back half of the yacht makes it feel more like a glass house than a boat. The lower saloon boasts some of the best water views of any yacht in its class. The master suite also has longitudinal glass panels that stretch the full length of the hull to the bow, providing unmatched water view ever in a bow stateroom.

The BeachClub 600 is powered by twin Volvo Penta 950 IPS drives for a top speed of 25 knots. The captain can also drive from the upper station, attached to an exterior deck with about 200 square feet of more social space. Van der Valk asserts the boat should be launched on schedule later this year.

Yacht Concept Cosmos from Oceanco01

Yacht Concept Cosmos from Oceanco

High-end yacht builder Oceanco is known for some of the world’s most compelling superyachts. The Dutch shipyard recently partnered with leading designers for its newest concept that will take your breath away. The 295-foot Cosmos concept is the result of the collaboration of Luiz DeBasto and Oceanco. It sports a curved, almost sportboat-like superstructure, but its most dramatic feature is the skydeck. Designed to be enclosed in thousands of square feet of glass, the appearance of the yacht will resemble that of a starship. The glass dome will reveal unrivalled views in every direction, allowing for a full immersion with the surrounding environment.

DeBasto and Oceanco are both famous for designing concepts that push the boundaries of luxury and comfort. Oceanco’s engineering department carefully studied Cosmos’s feasibility to realize it in a manner that is both functional and daring. Cosmos’s glass panels are enclosed in metal frames for extra support and the frame leans forward to enhance the structural integrity, and to improve the view. The yacht benefits from UV-protected glass, which can be dimmed or even coloured to match guests’ individual preference.

The enclosed skydeck has a flexible layout. Its long lounges in the centre and a piano bar make great use of the many feet of open space between the sole and dome above. An open observation deck with optional Jacuzzi is accessible via glass doors. There is also a large terrace – perfect for alfresco dining. The bow has a helipad for quick getaways, and an infinity pool.

Yacht Concept Cosmos from Oceanco02

Cosmos’s superstructure is much more dynamic and flowing than most modern yachts, making it quite the contrast to the straight-edged, layered look of a traditional vessel. DeBasto has yet to announce an accommodations plan for Cosmos, or performance specs, but BMT Nigel Gee naval architects designed the hull for remote, bluewater voyaging. This means the yacht falls somewhere between a traditional cruising yacht and an explorer. Price is yet to be revealed.

Dynamiq and Porsche reveal a spectacular Hybrid Yacht

Luxury carmaker Porsche has followed other supercar brands like Mercedes-AMG and Aston Martin into the world of yachts. The brand’s first venture onto high seas is the spectacular GTT 115 Hybrid -developed in collaboration with Monaco-based boat builders Dynamiq.

Hybrid Yacht02

At 115-feet in length, the new vessel has plenty of room for several spacious cabins. Open to customizations, it can be finished with carbon fibre and marble detailing throughout.  Furnishings will be finished with the same material as the seats in the Porsche 911 R. Both the exterior and interior design has been done by Studio F.A. Porsche. As a result, the GTT 115 Hybrid shows off quite a few design cues usually found on Porsche’s road cars and is aggressive and elegant. The rear end of the yacht mimics the rear hatch of a 911 complete with the signature tail light. Its fast-displacement, lightweight aluminium hull will offer racing-inspired performance and comfortable, high-speed cruising.

Hybrid Yacht03

The Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid is powered by twin 1626bhp MAN diesel engines together with a hybrid power system with a set of 45kW Fischer Panda variable-speed generators. The top speed is 21 knots (38.89km/h) and its range – 6,296 kilometres.

Hybrid Yacht04

With only seven vessels scheduled for production, buyers will want to get in line early to book a slot for the £10-million yacht. However, Dynamiq is planning on rolling out smaller 100-foot and 85-foot versions of the Porsche-inspired yacht later. Interested parties will be able to catch a glimpse of first models of the GTT 115 models at the prestigious Monaco Yacht Show in September.

Eurocraft’s 151-Foot Explorer Yacht Project

A new “crossover” explorer-yacht design has been debuted for the 151-foot Eurocraft. It gives a powerful boost to the performance capabilities of the comfortable yacht, making it expedition-ready. The exterior is designed by Federico Fiorentino, who has many award-winning yacht designs in his resume. However, his latest work is in a class of its own. The vessel is powerful, with an almost militaristic profile, offset by long banks of windows and the open skybridge. Its strong, silent body gives it an aggressive vibe – far different than the typically conservative superyachts that populate the Mediterranean.
