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

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

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

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

family paradise on the water – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

The owner of this yacht believes that design requires functionality and practicality must be accompanied by a distinct aesthetic. Benetti recently built the 11.11 motor superyacht with striking design features. Curiously, just ten months before leaving the Italian shipyard, she changed hands and started a new life. Family paradise The owner of the yacht is a British businessman who has created outstanding projects in the field of innovative design. He was energetically involved in the process and, together with his Read more

one level up – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

This fall, at the Cannes Yachting Festival, Sunseeker Yachts literally has a big premiere: the British shipyard presents a 35-meter novelty – the Sunseeker 116 Yacht. It seems that with such a length (and cost!) There can be no big queue of those wishing to own this ship, but … Exactly a year ago, at the same exhibition, Sunseeker Yachts celebrated the launch of its 100th yacht over 100 feet in length. Given that the shipyard builds about seven such Read more

Waiting for Azimut 35 Grande – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

A small journalistic investigation into the Azimut 35 Grande – a yacht that few have seen so far. You always want to be the first. Tell about the yacht before it was built, and even try yourself in the role of a visionary, trying to understand and describe what drove the designers who created the exterior and interiors. Then, when the rain of awards falls on the yacht, they themselves will willingly tell everything, and it will be interesting to Read more

The door to immortality. On board Lürssen Coral Ocean – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

While scientists are struggling with the secret of man’s eternal youth, this problem has already been solved for yachts. One of the peculiarities of the work of yacht journalists is that in most cases we have to deal with brand new yachts that have barely left the shipyard and if they suffer anything, only minor imperfections due to lack of time from their creators. Boats with ten years of “experience” are shown to us much less often, and we are Read more

Visiting Sarins Båtar – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

This year marks half a century of the Sarins Båtar shipyard, which produces motor boats under the Sargo brand in Kokkola, the Finnish province of Ostrobothnia. This shipyard is still a family business; now the second generation of the family runs it. MBY tested all the boats of the shipyard, which were previously called Minor, and now called Sargo, the editors are well familiar with the shipyard management.
