Motor Yacht A and Sailing Yacht A are some of the most spectacular and largest private yachts ever designed and built. Crafted by famed designer Philippe Starck, these are examples of sheer opulence that even multi-millionaires dream of.
The tenders are things of beauty and more attainable for mere mortals when our heads hit the pillow. For Motor Yacht A, Starck designed two stunning 11m tenders called the Limo Tender and the Open Tender to be used for two specific purposes.
Limo Tender is simply used to shuttle guests and the owner, Andrey Melnichenko, to shore and back. It features a beautiful teak and holly deck and bow, but that’s not the stand out feature. That lies to the interior. One that is so plush that it surpasses five star hotels with 1.9m of headroom, supple looking armchairs and sofas allowing guests to relax as they are chauffeured to shore.
The Open Tender on the other hand is more a service tender than anything else. With an open compartment, it allows the crew to access elements of Motor Yacht A’s bow and sides, but that didn’t stop Starck from designing it to be as unique as its sister tender, with its circular guest compartment.
Lamborghini and The Italian Sea Group have worked together to present the limited edition ‘Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63’ yacht celebrating the automotive manufacturer’s birth in 1963.
Inspired by the Lamborghini Sián FPK 37 and countless collaboration sessions with Lamborghini’s Centro Stile, the yacht is fitted with two MAN V12-2000 hp engines capable of reaching 60 knots, making it the fastest of the Tecnomar fleet.
Carbon fibre is used throughout the 63 foot yacht, classing this as ultra-lightweight weighing in at under 24 tons. Looking at it, you immediately know it is influenced by Lamborghini cars with a nautical theme. The hull and superstructure are created from a high performance shell, interpreting the lines created by Marcello Gandini in the Miura and Countach.
The hard top is inspired by Lamborghini roadsters guaranteeing aerodynamic performance whilst providing sun and wind protection whilst the bow lights are an homage to the Terzo Millenio concept and the Sian FKP 37.
The interior of the Tecnomar includes Lamborghini’s clean lines, hexagon shapes, Y-motifs and materials. The instrument panel interprets the car’s cockpit in a nautical style integrating the navigation and control systems, with the traditional Lamborghini start stop button for each V12 engine. As with Lamborghini road cars, there is plenty of carbon fibre with it used in the seats and on the helm. Buyers are able to choose from two interiors with a myriad combination of materials. They can also pick a number of exterior colours and liveries to match their Lamborghini parked at the marina.
The first boat will be available at the beginning of 2021.
In the past, if you were called a Wally, you were either stupid or a guy a lot of kids were looking for. Nowadays the name Wally has been bestowed on a set of luxury yachts.
Wally yachts do a number of yachts, and a number of people will know or have heard of their flagship… the Wally 118.
Here we have the Wally One, the perfect day boat, sleek and slightly futuristic as all Wally’s are. Its 42 feet long, perfect for watersports and has all the amenities that come with a boat nowadays. It offers a small kitchen area, and a sleeping area for 2 guests. It is powered by two Yanmar engines delivering more than 630Hp allowing this boat to power through the waves at 40-50knots.
People who can afford boats of this size might overlook it as it does not provide them with what some people may call value for money. For the money this is worth, one can buy a larger boat which can hold and sleep more people.
To me though, that is not what Wally is all about. To own a Wally yacht, a person can have this solely to use for the day or for watersports, and will then head on his super yacht to entertain.
The price of this mean, watersports machine: $840,000
have you ever seen a boat that can drive up onto the sand without damaging its keel? No neither have I until I came across the Iguana. it was named after the reptile which adapts to its environment and this is what the yacht does.
It has fully retractable caterpillar tracks on its hull which you simply put it into use when it gets shallow enough to use and chug up the beach in style.
The IGUANA YACHTS company was created in 2008 by Antoine Brugidou, who was full of ambition to develop new technologies and sustainable products for motor cruising and boating in general.
If you feel this is the yacht for you get ready to fork out a hefty price of $280,000
