The Wider 130 04

A New Yacht Model for Wider

The Wider 130 is an eye-catching addition to the 150 and 165 yacht models with its sleek, modern design. The innovative, fuel-efficient super yachts comes with lots of usable deck space – perfect for soaking up the sun during those long trips to the French Riviera and the Mediterranean.

Renowned yacht builder Wider launched the 150-foot Bartali several years ago, no one expected the Italian will be able to outdo itself. Now, the recently revealed 130 proves motor yachts can be designed around function, form and luxury. Building on its fuel-efficient predecessor, the new model boasts an unbelievable amount of usable deck space for owners and guests, and wide-open saloons and staterooms.

The Wider 130 01

Similar to its sisterships, the Wider 130 is a technological wonder with a 27-foot 7-inch beam that helped the designers create more than 2,300 square feet of deck space. Such square footage is typically reserved for larger yachts. The yacht is divided into three zones: a wide-open foredeck for sunning and privacy, an aft bridge deck for dining and social gatherings, and the transom beach club, which opens to the sea.

The Wider 130 02

Wider’s diesel-electric propulsion is positioned amidships, which is different than at the stern like most other yachts. The lack of engines in the back let the designers expand the beach club, essentially turning it into a serious relaxation space on the water.  The 130’s garage is forward-facing, rather than at the stern, able to accommodate a 16-foot tender and two jet skis. The diesel-electric engines demonstrate 20% more fuel efficiency than conventional diesels. Fuel consumption has been reduced to a mere 22 gallons per hour at 10 knots. At the same speed, the 130 has a range of 3,400 nautical miles. The Wider can also run on battery power for up to six hours. Owners won’t be bothered by any engine vibration or diesel fumes, emulating the feeling of being aboard a 19th-century sailing yacht, but with access to all modern conveniences.

The Wider 130 03

All cabins have gained extra space aft thanks to engine placement. The full-beam master suite forward is palatial for a 130-foot yacht, with an opening terrace that overlooks the surrounding scenery. Evert detail of the layout is the result of symbiosis between function, form and comfort.

Heesen's Hybrid Superyacht Home03

Heesen’s Hybrid Superyacht Home

Project Nova, the 163-foot Heesen hybrid yacht has just completed five days of extensive sea trials in the North Sea. Aptly named Hope, the yacht is on its way to owners in the Mediterranean.

Home is the first Heesen hybrid. It has a strong Omega-designed exterior, which boasts an almost hawk-like, vertical bow that serves as the entry for a long, lean profile. Other features worth mentioning include Home’s hybrid electric-diesel propulsion mated to Heesen’s advanced hull shape.

Heesen's Hybrid Superyacht Home01

Heesen has made a name for itself with its Fast Displacement Hull Form (FDHF), which is designed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects. It was first used on the 213-foot Galactica Star as well as three other steel-hulled Heesens since.

Home is powered by twin 804 hp MTU 12V 2000 M61 engines. Although small for a yacht this size, they are able to produce impressive top end of 16.3 knots during its sea trials. Top speed increased to 18.5 knots when the MTUs were supplemented with the yacht’s two 170 hp DC electric engines.

At a cruising speed of 16 knots the yacht only consumes about 71 gallons per hour. At 12 knots, fuel consumption drops to 26 gph. When it only uses the electric motors Home achieves the respectable speed of 10 knots at 12 gph.

Heesen's Hybrid Superyacht Home04

The yacht is defined by its modern aesthetics, inside and out, which are as impressive as its technological breakthroughs. Its striking exterior was created by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects. Vertical bows and high bulwarks complement the open bow to the floor-to-ceiling windows amidships, and the fixed swim platform at the stern. The interior has a sophisticated linear design in a two-tone palette. Bright colours are combined with abundant natural light for a warm, relaxed feel across the cabin. Home will make its public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.

The hull was designed by Umberto Tagliavini with efficiency in mind, and is capable of a top speed of 14 knots, via twin 2,100 hp Caterpillar engines. It cruises at 12 knots. The superstructure is unusually contemporary for an explorer yacht. It boasts serrated curves in the superstructure areas over the windows and a jaunty hardtop on the top deck. Other striking features include the ship’s bridge, aft deck for storage. The open bow area gives it a more traditional explorer design.

Numarine’s 32XP Explorer Yacht03

The flybridge is a typical party platform, with sofas, a dining table for 12, and a full wet bar. The owner’s cabin sits on the deck below and includes a walk-in closet, bathroom, and—a superior feature—exclusive access to the aft deck. There is a second master suite on the main deck, with a large bedroom and separate his-and-her bathrooms and a shared rain-forest shower. A professional galley (with four full-size fridges, freezers, and cooking equipment for long voyages) connects via a pantry to the open-plan saloon. In addition, there are two VIP and two double cabins along with crew quarters for five via a separate entrance.

Numarine’s 32XP Explorer Yacht04

In partnership with Silent Line, Numarine was able to reduce noise and vibration on the 32XP. This allowed the Turkish shipyard to surpass RINA’s “Comfort Class” standards in the 50-meter (165-foot) class.

baglietto_andiamo

Baglietto Launches Superyacht Andiamo

Baglietto debuted its new 157-foot superyacht Andiamo, which is an exquisite update of the brand’s classic Baglietto look with an added modern twist.

The Italian shipyard’s most recent superyacht is built for a Mexican client who plans to cruise the Mediterranean and bring the vessel back across the Atlantic. The 157-foot tri-deck yacht boasts the standard profile of Baglietto’s traditional 150-foot displacement yacht. However, the new Andiamo has a more contemporary design and various architectural elements that put it a step above its predecessor. A larger beach club, reverse-angle windshield across the helm station for better visibility, and athwartships tender garage are just some of the practical improvements that significantly enhance onboard experience and living.

The exterior and interior are designed by Francesco Paszkowski and includes a 1,500-square-foot sundeck. The top deck has an infinity pool, alfresco dining with bar and grill, and a large sunbathing area. And if that’s not enough – there is a second outdoor dining area on a lower deck forward. Guests can marvel at the panoramic sights from two open terraces – situated on either side of the cinema room in the upper saloon. A total of 3800 square feet of space for gatherings turns Andiamo into one of the most social boats in its class.

The interior blends functionality and luxury with materials like lacquered ebony and onyx to create a rich, dramatic look. The spiral staircase is made of steel and bound in leather, connecting the three decks. The master suite sits on the main deck and benefits from a private dressing area as well as two bathrooms for the owners. Five additional staterooms (three doubles and two twins with Pullman berths) sit on the lower deck. Andiamo has quarters for up to nine crew members.

The steel-hulled yacht has aluminum topsides and is MCA compliant. Its twin MTU engines (12V 4000 M63) can reach a top speed of 16 knots and cruising speed of 12 knots. The vessel will make public appearances at the Cannes and Monaco yacht shows in September after its tour of the Mediterranean this summer.

The 78-foot flybridge yacht has a strong and handsome profile and makes smart use of space. Its new “Silent Package,” a lithium-ion battery system is where it really shines through as it raises onboard quality of life far above any other yacht in its class.

This enhancement is a first for high-profile yachts and one that will surely take sea voyaging to a whole new level.

The flybridge is the main draw of the new Numarine. Its four-sunbed configuration surrounds a center helm station. It can accommodate up to four guests in the reclining sunbeds. The designers positioned the bridge far enough to allow space for skylights over the main deck. A shorter bridge lets the boat retain the 78HT’s low, aggressive profile.

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.

The Ultimate Superyacht Submarine

The Ultimate Superyacht Submarine

Drawing inspiration from every traveller’s guidebook – Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, – the Austrian-based Migaloo Submarines is going to design, engineer, and build a private submersible yacht. The concept exhibits austere architecture and powerful performance capabilities. The yacht takes the concept of privacy to a new level, as it will be able to remain submerged both at anchor and when cruising between destinations.

An offshoot of the design firm Motion Code: Migaloo will work with clients to customize the designs to accommodate any size specifications or different configurations based on the four primary models currently offered. This has never before been done for submarine vessels available for private buyers, and is surely going to attract a host of rich buyers, who want their own nautical toy.
