Azimut Benetti Group yachts: “made in Italy”

What is behind the success of Azimut Benetti Group? First-class projects, attention to different markets and, of course, ambitious plans that tend to come true. When the question arises, who builds the most superyachts in the world, it is especially important to understand the terminology. Firstly, what is a superyacht, and secondly, how can they be counted: in hulls or in meters? A superyacht is usually called a vessel over 100 feet in length, but you can also focus on Read more

Luxury doesn’t follow fashion. This is a classic born today for the day to come.

The guiding stars of Heesen Yachts – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

We are talking about the Heesen Yachts shipyard and one of its interesting projects called Maia. In recent years, the world of superyachts has become more and more closed, and, for example, large German shipyards prefer not to let the press at all on their production sites. But Dutch companies take the opposite position: while strictly observing confidentiality agreements with clients, they nevertheless find an opportunity to show journalists not only the result, but also the process of their work.

Galeon Yachts at boot Düsseldorf 2018 – Motor Boat & Yachting Russia

At boot Düsseldorf 2018, Galeon Yachts is presenting six yacht models at once, three of which are world premieres. A large yachting exhibition is always a celebration of the industry, a sensitive indicator of the current state of the market, a meeting place for all kinds of people and a rare opportunity “under one roof” to see such a variety of boats that otherwise it would take a year to visit them. The January boot Düsseldorf has 17 pavilion-roofs and Read more

Other yachts

Yaretti 2380 looks like its “younger sister” – Yaretti 2210, with which our magazine has already introduced its readers (Yachting, 2004, No. 11, May – June). However, the difference is not limited to the additional one and a half meters in length. The shifted rear deckhouse and the gently raised stern line give the yacht’s silhouette lightness and elegance. A huge teak-covered bathing platform can easily accommodate an additional tender or jet bike, and even all passengers, and on board Read more

Princess Yachts. At the dawn of a new era

It is no secret that Russians have always been more in demand for classic flybridge models: in comparison with sports ones with the same length, they have more space. In addition, there is an opinion that flybridge ones are richer in terms of finishes and options, while sports, supposedly, are much simpler. In terms of handling, the Princess S78 is more likely to be attributed to the sports class, but the model blows all the preconceptions about sports yachts to Read more

Falcon, Cosmos and other new Heesen Yachts facilities.

Having reported on the premieres at the autumn exhibitions, superyacht manufacturers often calm down until spring, when the mass transfer of boats to customers begins, and one can only guess what happens in the dockyards’ sheds in winter. However, this does not apply to Heesen Yachts, where a dozen superyachts operate all year round, and the shipyard always shares information about the passage of this or that project of reference points. Unless contracts provide for strict confidentiality. Neptune Project (YN Read more

Simple truths – Ferretti Yachts philosophy

A home away from home. A simple yet succinct definition of the ideal yacht. It is this that forms the basis of the new corporate philosophy of Ferretti Yachts – Just Like Home. The first embodiment of this philosophy was the restyled version of the flybridge yacht Ferretti Yachts 920 Pure, which debuted at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019. Different shipyards strive to achieve perfection in every way and understand comfort in their own way. Some are playing with asymmetric Read more

Austin Parker continued collaboration with Fulvio de Simoni. The renowned designer has had a hand in the exterior of all eight new boats. The main news will be the appearance of the brand’s longest yacht – Al 86 FLY. With a 26.2m aluminum hull and flybridge, the model is a superyacht. She will significantly differ from other Austin Parker boats with an aggressive and “fashionable” exterior, far removed from both the corporate style of the “lobster boat” and from the Read more
