Arcadia Yachts Debut The Eco-Friendly Arcadia 85

The layout and the functional living concepts of Arcadia 85 US Edition are the result of a construction evolution: the linear design of the superstructure and the vertical line of the bow allow a better use of every single available internal/external space. Living capacity is wider than other yachts of the same size. The uniqueness of Arcadia’s project is finding in the design solution to integrate solar panels into a yacht with navigation performance.

The yard's passion for solar technology and clean mobility is finally expressed in this 26mt length and 7.15 width yacht equipped with 40sqm of photovoltaic panels each composed of hundreds of high performance solar cells. That’s how and where any Arcadia yacht get all the energy for the equipment on board: showers, WC, fridge and lights.

The design of Arcadia 85 reflects simple and understated styling with an harmonious blend between the indoor and outdoor areas. Her deckhouse has been made almost entirely out of double layered reflecting glass, giving the interior a bright and airy feel.

The sliding over-head and lateral blinds can provide privacy and shade, as required by the owner and his guests once in port or in bay. Arcadia 85 impressive aft-deck lounge (8,50mt in length) features a well-protected cockpit, perfect for dining, as well as large sunbathing area towards the stern of the yacht.

Arcadia 85 is a semi-planing yacht. Its particular hull (NPL) is named after the National Physical Laboratory of England where tests were conducted to determine the best shape hull and the best ratio length-beam in terms of hydrodynamic efficiency.

Studies and tests were implemented by Arcadia’s technical department as well as hull shape - prior to adopt the NPL as Arcadia’s Hulls with the result of excellent sea keeping qualities and noise reduction for an exceptional comfort while cruising or at anchor.

Arcadia 85 hull is built in gel coat and reinforced fiberglass with vinylester resin for the three external layers. Sides are built in PVC sandwich with fiberglass. This particular structure makes an Arcadia yacht considerably light and durable for its size. The advanced semi-planing hull which allows efficient performances together with the very light superstructure in aluminium significantly reduces weight and fuel consumption and related running costs of its low-power engines .

The 25.90 metre (84.95ft) Arcadia 85 has a full load displacement of 67 tons. She is powered by twin MAN diesels R6-730hp each, giving her the maximum speed of 18.5 knots and she can comfortably cruise at the speed of 16.5 knots, as well as 12.0 knots.

BLUE Marine Foundation Named NGO Of The Year

Founded and creative by Jarvis Smith, in association with PQ Magazine, this glamorous green carpet awards ceremony honours those who have demonstrated the importance of sustainability.

The award, quite rightly, provided to the BLUE Marine Foundation was for ‘the charity or NGO in the environment / sustainability sector that’s really shaking this up – and getting results where they matter most.’

Impressed with the amount that BLUE has achieved in the short time it has been running, the judges gave this award to the only marine charity represented at the event.

“When Charles Clover accepted the award he said that it was our 'sheer tenacity' that had enabled us to help increase the amount of ocean under protection in the world and create the UK's first fully documented sustainable fishery,” explains a report from the BLUE Marine Foundation. “We'd like to thank all our friends and supporters for helping us to get this far. We hope that this award will carry us on a wave to achieve even more in the coming year.”

Wisp: Revivalist Style With A Performance Edge

Wisp, a truly classic sloop with a performance that belies her traditional lines, is a magnificent example of revivalist naval architecture from the drawing board of Hoek Design with interior architecture by Rhoades Young Design. Fulfilling the brief as a supremely comfortable cruising yacht more than capable to provide the pleasures of some ‘gentleman’s racing’ on occasion she presented an exciting challenge for the designers and shipyard alike.

The client, whilst satisfied to cruise at a leisurely pace, was looking for a decent turn of speed without sailing on the edge. Moreover, as he plans to make long passages he expected the same high level of comfort – both inside and on deck – he had enjoyed on various yachts; and with meticulous attention to detail, he was involved in every aspect of the design and construction of what has become his ‘home away from home’.

In terms of hull design, the Hoek Design team has revitalised the style and grace of the classic sailing yachts of yesteryear, whilst paying homage to the needs of today’s modern lifestyle on board. Features developed by the team, such as the owner’s aft cockpit, provide a degree of privacy and amenity. Although not typical of the original design period, they help to marry echoes from the past with a thoroughly modern list of creature comforts for today’s expectant guest.

The talented Dutch firm of naval architects was tasked with developing a yacht that would sail very well without excessive heel; hence Wisp’s added form stability, Alustar aluminium hull and spoon bow for a gentler ride.

Her cutter rig, moderate draft underbody, carbon composite spars from Rondal, EC6 and Carbo-Link hybrid rigging and efficient sail handling systems are all enhanced for performance, seaworthiness and ease of handling. The cutter-rig sailplan was designed for balance and simple while cruising and the possibility of using overlapping genoas for racing, with much thought going into the track positioning and winch sizes to handle the increased loads and speeds during regattas.

A close collaboration between the Hoek Design office and Rhoades Young Design ensured consistency between the exterior and interior styling details, which were made a reality by Royal Huisman. The deck design reveals a clean and contemporary layout that still respects the classic styling if the striking sheer, spoon bow, traditional counter stern and teak clad low-profile deckhouses.

The result is an uncluttered expanse of teak decking fore and aft with few obstacles to disturb the sense of harmony. Indeed, throughout the yacht the exterior woodwork has been rationalised by examining and simplifying every joint and detail to create calming guest areas with plenty of hidden storage and an efficient navigation cockpit.

The hull shape provided ample room for Rhoades Young Design, renowned for their sophisticated yet understated yacht interiors, to work their magic in creating grand accommodations for six guests in three en-suite cabins and a spacious owner’s suite. The brief was for a light, airy and calming ambience in which to travel the world – a style the owner summed up in the word ‘jolly’ – and this kick-started the process for Rhoades Young to define an interior design that reflected the classic grace of Wisp’s exterior.

“From an architectural point of view, we created an unusual open-plan interior layout that is designed in layers to reveal itself gradually,” says Jonathan Rhoades. “Below deck you are lead from space to space and at each destination the rooms feel resolved and complete. It is only on exploring further that you realise they open onto other spaces, until finally all the layers are peeled back to reveal salons and cabins with huge sightlines through the various deck levels linking the interior and exterior.”

This timeless sloop, which embodies the spirit of classical style under sail, is a proud addition to the global superyacht fleet and a head-turner for any experience sailor; however, more details will be emerging soon as we look past life on deck and move further into the lifestyle on board Wisp in a feature coming soon.

A foundation close to the heart of Superyachts.com earned a well-deserved recognition recently from PEA (People Environment & Achievement) Awards for NGO of the Year. The work of the foundation is of paramount importance as they protect the oceans that mean so much to our industry, more importantly, the world’s health.

We also saw the unveiling of a number of new projects, from eco-friendly and distinctive projects from Arcadia to motor yacht concepts of imposing size thanks to the new Golden Wings concept from Tankoa.

Sticking with a green angle this week, the world of sailing has two new impressive projects to look forward to after Philippe Briand announced another partnership with Perini Navi after Nautor’s Swan reported the sale of the brand-new first-ever Swan 95.

This has not been a dull week, nor is it ever in this industry, but things are undeniably winding down and I for one am looking forward to the holidays – even if it does mean that the dawn of 2015 will be bringing an exciting, yet dauntingly busy, new year.

World Class Cruising On Superyacht Mon Plaisir

Created by Heesen Yachts, this characteristic vessel holds nothing but a glowing repute from charter guests due to her ability to go anywhere in true style and complete comfort. Mon Plaisir measures 46.7 metres, and thanks to her steel hull and full displacement with at anchor stabilisation, this yacht offers stability whether at sea or at anchor.

Designed by Omega Architects with the construction ethic and expertise of Heesen Yachts behind the project, Mon Plaisir’s current owner has spared nothing in the way of build and has put her on the brokerage market for the very first time since her launch.

Not only was this yacht constructed by experts in 2008; Mon Plaisir has been maintained to an exemplary level and provides ample space for up to ten guests in five cabins. Notable features on board include the spacious sky lounge, an upper deck with Jacuzzi and a fold-down bathing platform at the transom to bring those on board limitless access to the water. Moving inside, a large main salon, a formal dining area which can seat 12 guests and a relaxing area with sofas and a large pop-up television make up the elements which play host to a wealth of intricate design details.

Her interior is a mix of outstanding hardware and panel trimmings which include Sterling Silver, Elmo leather finishes, Calacatta marble, American walnut wood flooring, and an attention to detail seldom seen on the water. The interior styling offers a clean, fresh feel with stunning detailing throughout the yacht.

The balance between interior volume and exterior deck space, sleek, elegant lines with intelligent engineering is remarkable; however, it’s a well-known fact that it’s the crew who makes a yacht a home - whether it’s for an experienced yachtsman, a new owner, or seasoned charter guest .

Since launch, Mon Plaisir has maintained the same Captain who always employs the right crew in achieving a sterling reputation on the charter market thanks to a low profile service with reliable people; who not only have experience in all aspects of entertaining but excel at hosting parties as well as looking after kids’ activities, theme nights and beach barbeques.

Currently in Imperia, Italy, Mon Plaisir is available for sale through SuperYachtsMonaco for an asking price of 21,500,000 Euro.

The Changing Face Of China’s New Build Industry

Only a few pioneering brands can be attributed with establishing the current yacht building culture in Asia. Builders such as Cheoy Lee - who already held a rich history in ship repair in the 1800s - began building luxury yachts in the mid 1950s, and paved the way for builders such as Yantai Raffles (now Pride Mega Yachts), Kingship and IAG to appear across the millenium.

Today, new projects emerging from China perfectly illustrate the evolution which is gradually bringing the region into a recognised position in terms of global yacht building.

The Kingship yard (founded in 2003) grabbed the world’s attention and began the change in attitude when Green Voyager came to the fore. Among Kingship's project list, this innovative take on energy-efficient yachting was a big step forward for the Chinese yacht building community and was not the last.

Among the recent projects under build in China, the 88.8 metre superyacht Illusion which is due for delivery mid-2015 and is set to enter the Top 100 Largest Yachts List next year. Under construction with Pride Mega Yachts, this distinctive design was recently followed by the announcement that the yard has also introduced a new 108.8 metre superyacht concept named Tomorrow.

However, while world attitudes may be changing for the region, there are still some issues which are left to be tackled before market activity can boom. The lack of infrastructure, such as tax regulations, the lack of marinas in the region alongside any remaining stereotype surrounding ‘cheap’ Chinese yacht projects are changing.

While current problems facing the region may take some time to alter, the Visun Group are already building new infrastructure in Sanya with a fully functional Marina which hosts the annual Hainan Rendezvous. This show is both charging a front to bring potential yacht owners and guests into the yachting community as well as creating more structure for current yacht owners to enjoy what Asia has to offer.

The changing attitude of the world toward China’s yacht building industry is taking place gradually as the world begins to see the potential in Asia’s cultural move toward the water.

Feadship Appoints New Director For De Voogt Naval Architects

“I am delighted to join Feadship, which is recognised in the maritime world as brand leader in the luxury motoryacht sector,” comments Günther. “In addition to the obvious technical challenges this brings in the areas of naval architecture, marine engineering and design, I was particularly attracted to the culture with Feadship De Voogt Naval Architects, where achieving excellence is the norm. I look forward to interacting with the world’s top designers and the extraordinary Feadship clients around whom this company revolves.

Günther comes to Feadship from Damen Shipyards, where he was manager of engineering for high-speed craft and ferries. Under his watch, the engineering department at the company’s headquarters doubled in size, while the engineering subsidiary in Vietnam almost tripled and a new engineering branch was opened in Singapore. Günther’s previous experience includes key functions at Bosch, Plasticum and Axxicon.

“We all made a huge effort to comply with an incredibly short, thus very challenging, design and production schedule which Lürssen actually succeeded in achieving even one month ahead of time,” explains the Italian design studio. “Knowing now that the Owner is finally starting to enjoy what we have created is definitely a happy moment.”

“Azzam’s design and build process was like a Ph. D. course in the megayacht world! We are now ready and confident in facing any kind of challenge in that field in a very mature way: the wake of Azzam, in terms of new projects, is already there and we are enjoying our confidence in dealing with it.”

Azzam is at the pinnacle of marine engineering, harnessing unbridled power, ground-breaking propulsion systems and a timeless design which puts her among the elite of achievements on the water. After a year’s wait, this incredible superyacht is finally enjoying the freedom of the water and we’re looking forward to following her career as it progresses.

With one month to go until 2015 begins and Azzam gleaning just attention in the closing stages of 2014, I find it a perfectly fitting end to the year; however, 2015 will bring a wealth of new projects which will change the face of the global superyacht fleet entirely.

We’re currently working on preparations for the annual Top 100 Largest Yachts Forecast, and in an attempt to maintain secrecy, 2015 is looking very exciting.
