Pe­ri­ni Na­vi - Eco Ten­der 25 Me­tri

25 M ECO TEN­DER

Superyacht - - What’s On The Market - by Dan­ny Lo

Con­si­de­ring it’s twen­ty fi­ve me­tres long it is dif­fi­cult to re­fer to it as a ten­der or ser­vi­ce craft. It would in fact be mo­re cor­rect to na­me it a ‘cha­se boat’. This new Eco Ten­der by Pe­ri­ni Na­vi has been crea­ted to meet the needs of an ow­ner of this re­no­w­ned Ita­lian brand wan­ting a mo­tor ya­cht for his 50 me­tre sai­ling su­pe­rya­cht but wi­thout omit­ting all the qua­li­ty and com­fort ty­pi­cal of Pe­ri­ni Na­vi. The pro­ject de­si­gn work has been car­ried out in hou­se exclusively. The con­struc­tion ma­te­rial is in alu­mi­nium al­loy and is sche­du­led for de­li­ve­ry in the be­gin­ning of 2019. The si­lhouet­te and the ex­te­rior li­nes are sleek and clas­sic at the sa­me ti­me, and the in­te­riors are stric­tly con­tem­po­ra­ry li­ke the mo­ther ship’s. Eco Ten­der will be equip­ped wi­th a so­phi­sti­ca­ted fle­xi­ble die­sel-elec­tric pro­pul­sion sy­stem in­vol­ving a pair of MAN en­gi­nes de­ve­lo­ping 1,627 HP ea­ch, cou­pled to Ha­mil­ton Hy­dro-jet dri­ves. This unit should at­tain mo­re than 30 kno­ts all out, but can crui­se in “ze­ro emis­sion” mo­de by de­ploy­ing bat­te­ry po­wer to fuel the hy­dro-je­ts. In this way ma­ri­ne parks will no lon­ger be off li­mi­ts. The on board gear in­clu­des a cou­ple of dro­nes to re­con­noi­tre unex­plo­red pla­ces of dif­fi­cult ac­cess.

I mo­ved on to Na­nook a Co­de­ca­sa 50 me­tre and af­ter four sea­sons, he­re I am cur ren­tly Oa­sis’s cap­tain. Whi­ch are the main fea­tu­res of the ya­cht you are skip­pe­ring? Oa­sis is an in­cre­di­ble ship. She’s a Lürssen su­pe­rya­cht built in 2006 to ve­ry hi­gh qua­li­ta­ti­ve stan­dards and im­pec­ca­bly main­tai­ned by her crew and Adrian O’neil her for­mer cap­tain who’s re­cen­tly pas­sed away. I wi­sh to re­mem­ber him be­cau­se in the cour­se of the few days I spent wi­th him to get the drift of things, he ga­ve me a lot mo­re, as a cap­tain and as a man. Oa­sis is all of 60 me­tres long and di­spla­ces 1,213 tons. She fea­tu­res hu­ge spa­ces and ou­tstan­ding hea­droom whi­ch are dif­fi­cult to find on ships of the sa­me si­ze. Ve­ry low noi­se le­vels, the to­tal ab­sen­ce of any vi­bra­tion and her de­gree of sta­bi­li­ty are her main fea­tu­res. As for ma­noeu­vra­bi­li­ty thanks to in­de­pen­dent rud­ders and a po­wer­ful hi­gh per­for­man­ce bow th­ru­ster she re­sponds rea­di­ly al­so in re­stric­ted wa­ters. Fi­nal­ly even if I ha­ven’t been he­re long I can say she’s a fan­ta­stic ya­cht. Your fa­vou­ri­te ma­ri­na? I sim­ply ado­re Sou­th Ita­ly and su­re­ly Si­ra­cu­sa is one of my fa­vou­ri­tes from a cul­tu­ral view point and for the at­mo­sphe­re per­cei­ved. Pre­fer­red rou­te? I don’t ha­ve one, eve­ry rou­te can po­ten­tial­ly add to your know how. I’d be fa­sci­na­ted by Nor­we­gian fjords thou­gh and the Bal­tic sea as well as the Ca­rib­bean but fi­nal­ly I’d go for the Me­di­ter­ra­nean. From Spain to Tur­key, it’s in­com­pa­ra­bly beau­ti­ful. I want to men­tion Se­vil­le a fan­ta­stic city that ho­sted me, my crew and my guests wi­th unex­pec­ted warm­th sum­mer la­st. Whi­ch in­no­va­tions ha­ve struck you mo­st of the ya­ch­ting world and why? I’m ve­ry in­te­re­sted in the de­ve­lo­p­ment and use of new ma­te­rials and tech­no­lo­gies ai­med at ya­cht main­te­nan­ce in all its aspec­ts, from en­gi­nes to fi­ne wood ve­neers and pain­ts. For exam­ple na­no­tech­no­lo­gies are set to re­vo­lu­tio­ni­se our fu­tu­re. The em­ploy­ment of mo­dern pro­duc­ts and new so­lu­tions for in­te­riors fa­sci­na­te me in a spe­cial way. Cur­ren­tly we’re loo­king at ever evol­ving new de­vi­ces and tech­no­lo­gy ap­plied to the ya­ch­ting world, but I be­lie­ve ya­ch­ting is a step be­hind the world of pas­sen­ger ships. I am con­vin­ced crew coa­ching and up­gra­ding cour­ses as in lar­ge firms and in sports teams are su­re­ly use­ful: the con­cept of team work is uni­ver­sal and TCN’S are the fo­re­run­ners in this. Your wor­st ex­pe­rien­ce as cap­tain? We we­re ly­ing to an an­chor on a ve­ry win­dy day and be­cau­se of a ne­gli­gent crew mem­ber fi­re bro­ke out in one of the crew ca­bins. It was an un­plea­sant si­tua­tion, but we we­re all well dril­led and rea­di­ly fa­ced the emer­gen­cy ac­ting quic­kly. The end re­sult was a burnt blan­ket and mat­tress but the in­ten­si­ty of the acrid smell la­sted lon­ger than I thought and I drea­med it for a few days. What do you think about your ro­le as cap­tain and of the ya­ch­ting world you work in? I am still young and at 38 I’m skip­pe­ring a 60 me­tre su­pe­rya­cht. My opi­nion could be on­ly ve­ry per­so­nal and re­la­ti­ve as I’m still lear­ning. I be­lie­ve a cap­tain’s ro­le is su­re­ly sa­ti­sfy­ing, but no­thing co­mes free. The re­spon­si­bi­li­ties are ma­ny, to the ow­ner and crew who pla­ce their tru­st in the cap­tain. The cap­tain mu­st be of sup­port but mo­re so should lead by exam­ple. ”You can’t be­co­me a good cap­tain if you ha­ve not sol­die­red in mo­ral schoo­ling”.
