Big and different. Nobiskrug superyachts – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

“For a person who does not know where to go, there is no tailwind.” With these words Seneca greets visitors to the site of the German shipyard Nobiskrug. Until fifteen years ago, her fame rarely went beyond Germany, but during this period the company has come a long way, forever entering the history of the superyacht industry. Until 2009, the name Nobiskrug rarely appeared in the yacht press. The shipyard lived quietly as part of the ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems group Read more

VIS: strength and beauty

One division of the Fincantieri Group produces luxury yachts, and the other ships for the Italian Navy. The design of the yacht VIS (Latin for “strength”) shown at the Monaco Yacht Show brings their experience together. In the presentation video, views of a real battleship are superimposed on the yacht’s renders. It turns out that they almost coincide, except that there is a lounge area with sofas on the nose in place of the gun. What do we see in Read more

XO 360 – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

Robust, all-weather, fast, and with two cabins … The new XO 360 will rightfully take its place at the head of the fleet of Finnish boats XO. I don’t like testing boats in sunny weather on annoyingly calm seas. But we were lucky: in Pula, during the test of the new XO 360 with a clear sky, the wind dispersed such a disgusting (for most) steep wave that many boats, even larger ones, scattered over cover. For us, the conditions Read more

Moscow Dutchman

The international project Timmerman Yachts, which got its name in 2004, but de facto started in 2001, is the first yacht builder of the XXI century. Instead of long-standing traditions and experience of generations, it seethes with young blood and gushes with innovative ideas. However, the traditions of the Russian fleet have not disappeared anywhere either, because the main partner of the project and its main production site, the Moscow Shipyard, has been operating since 1936. The scale of the Read more

now in metal! – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

For some boat manufacturers, the difficult economic situation not only does not interfere with their work, but also allows them to take new heights. We present two new items from Velvette Marine shipyard – they have many chances to become hits of the season. Last year, the Kazan shipyard Velvette Marine announced the expansion of the model range and began producing boats not only from fiberglass, but also from metal. The first swallow – Velvette 20 Image with a light Read more

Navetta 30 project

The 28.43m three-deck yacht with flybridge from Custom Line is the result of a collaboration between the shipyard’s strategic design committee led by Piero Ferrari, Ferretti Group’s engineering department and Filippo Salvetti’s interior design studio. The interior layout of the ship is largely borrowed from the shipyard’s best-selling Custom Line Navetta 33. The master cabin and spacious saloon will be on the main deck, a cinema and an outdoor lounge area with a spacious sofa on the top, and the Read more

A word about Princess V58 – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

It is quite possible that the Princess V58 is the most stunning yacht built at the shipyard in recent years: her design and performance testify to this. It looks like Princess Yachts and yacht designer Bernard Olesinski have started a winning streak. The Sportbridge Princess S65 (see Rocket Energy MBY # 2/38, 2016) and the Princess 75 flybridge, recently shown at the London Boat Show, are both the most attractive models on the market today. They are perfectly complemented by Read more

City of masters

The Tueq yacht is truly a royal project. In search of the best craftsmen, the yacht owner turned to exactly the right place – to a group of specialists from SETE-YACHTS, now renamed PrivatSea Projects. This choice was also made because the yacht had to be built in an unusually short time, and PrivatSea Projects undertook to be in time. The calculation was justified: the 72m motor yacht Tueq was completed in just two years: from May 2000 to June Read more

Alpha constellation Rossinavi

Rossinavi shipyard and Venetian design bureau Enrico Gobbi have unveiled a 50m superyacht concept with a high and straight bow, reminiscent of the radiator grille of retro Alfa Romeo models. The project was predictably named Alfa. Although the hull of this sports boat looks aggressive, the inside of the superyacht is comfortable and elegantly designed. There is where to turn around: the internal volume is quite worthy for such a length of 500 GT. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to Read more

Tankoa Next 70: top notch

Following the success of the 69.3m Suerte and the 72m Solo, Tankoa and studio Francesco Pashkovski have developed a 70m superyacht with a straight bow and extensive customization options. The unusual layout suggests that the yacht was conceived for charter use. The customer will be able to choose from three options for superstructures that will easily fit into the exterior. The interior layout, in particular the forward area, will be arranged between the main and middle decks. So the owner’s Read more
