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

now in metal! – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

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

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

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
