Su­pery­achts, be­tween nos­tal­gia and ef­fi­ciency

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - YATCHS -

A mar­ket leader like Benetti has good rea­son to be proud: it has in­vested in re­search and de­vel­op­ment in or­der to op­ti­mise pro­duc­tion, speed up de­liv­ery of its mas­ter­pieces to loyal cus­tomers and re­duce wait­ing times. Ob­vi­ously, the larger the yacht - a yacht of “naval” size - the more time needed to build it. But, with the new line of four mod­els from 50 to 68 me­tres, Benetti, the star of the Livorno ship­yards, has found a way to con­sid­er­ably re­duce de­liv­ery times thanks to a unique new de­sign sys­tem de­vel­oped in­ter­nally, which op­ti­mises the en­gi­neer­ing stage and re­duces pro­duc­tion times - pro­vided the cus­tomer has not “ex­ag­ger­ated” with his re­quests. The ben­e­fit is enor­mous, and the 68-me­tre Bnow, al­though of­fer­ing highly cus­tomised in­te­ri­ors, reaches the mar­ket sev­eral months ear­lier than be­fore and way ahead of the com­pe­ti­tion. The four mod­els pre­sented at Cannes were all highly rated for their sleek, modern lines. The cen­tral sec­tion of the third and fourth decks on the 56-me­tre, 63-me­tre and 68-me­tre mod­els are strik­ingly sim­i­lar. The 68-me­tre yacht, how­ever, al­though of­fer­ing many ar­chi­tec­tural sim­i­lar­i­ties to the oth­ers, has a the clearly longer stern area, which pro­vides a sun-drenched and wind-pro­tected spot even dur­ing sail­ing and fea­tures a large open-air swim­ming pool. Riva aims to stun with in­no­va­tive con­cepts, and its new flag­ship, with a name cho­sen in­ten­tion­ally - Dol­cevita, de­liv­ers the best that modern con­struc­tive tech­nolo­gies can of­fer for the well-be­ing of guests on board in terms of the sea-far­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. With these 110-foot mega-yachts, on both the main and the in­creas­ingly ap­pre­ci­ated lower deck, win­dows of record-break­ing lengths and heights have been in­cluded, which grace­fully em­bel­lish the ul­tra-sporty pro­file. De­signed by Of­fic­ina Ital­iana De­sign, the

de­sign stu­dio founded by Mauro Micheli and Ser­gio Beretta, the yacht was pre­sented to the world, not sur­pris­ingly, at the Grand Prix His­torique of Monte-Carlo to pay trib­ute to a care­free era of tra­di­tions and moder­nity. In this Riva the in­cred­i­ble win­dows make it feel like a palace of crys­tal, a sea-go­ing gem that achieves new stan­dards of lux­ury with­out for­go­ing su­pe­rior per­for­mance, such as the max­i­mum speed of 26 knots. A fly­bridge yacht of this kind, with fi­bre­glass plan­ing hull and steel trims that em­brace its splen­did win­dows, has never been made so el­e­gantly by an Ital­ian ship­yard. The patent for the partly im­mersed hangar in the stern is also unique and al­lows easy ac­cess to the gen­er­ous space for the var­i­ous “toys”, used both for fun and to get around, on this modern won­der of the sea. We con­clude our re­view with a Turk­ish yacht that is able to please even dis­cern­ing Mediter­ranean cus­tomers. Alia Yachts’ Vir­gen del Mar VI, is the re­sult of the ded­i­ca­tion of the An­talya ship­yard, now 10 years old, which has built 10 yachts and su­pery­achts of lengths up to 61 me­tres. The Vir­gen del Mar VI, some 31 me­tres, is known as a “pocket superyacht”, which demon­strates the in­cred­i­ble skill needed to build a 235-tonne yacht with sur­pris­ing sea-far­ing abil­i­ties. Al­though re­tain­ing the op­tion for cus­tomi­sa­tion that has al­ways dis­tin­guished the work of this ship­yard, the Vir­gen del Mar VI was de­signed for long ocean voy­ages and of­fers a range of some 4,500 nau­ti­cal miles. De­signed by the Bri­tish de­sign stu­dio RWD, this yacht of re­strained de­sign is ap­pre­ci­ated for its level of “ra­tio­nal” de­tail, unique to its cat­e­gory. The in­te­rior spaces are en­hanced to max­i­mum ef­fect, with­out for­get­ting com­fort in the out­side space, to cre­ate a yacht with global ap­peal suitable for pri­vate cus­tomers, thanks to a high level of per­son­al­i­sa­tion, but also per­fect for char­ters, due to the great ad­van­tage of its record-break­ing range.
