In addition to being able to make transatlantic intersections, the Mini-Explorer, offered as a half-offset and offset hull, will be the only one in its class with a Touch-and-go Helipad option on the bow - usually only for large megayachts. It is expected that the new flagship yacht 42M Ilumen will make its debut at the exhibition in Cannes in three years. This will be the first motor yacht of its size and class with transatlantic capabilities. Dominator 42M Ilumen is now being built in the Italian courtyard for a German client who loves to travel, which is visible throughout the yacht. Appropriately, the owner of the first hull (a semi-displacement one) loves to travel, as can be seen throughout the yacht. “He wanted each area to represent different countries and continents,” says Pernsteiner. “For instance, the flybridge has a Middle Eastern theme, with a relaxing ambience and even a hookah lounge.” And the main deck resembles a modern, loft-style penthouse in the heart of New York City. The upper deck is Asian-style and designed for a detox zone and lifestyle, complete with a yoga studio, gym, smoothie bar and spacious windows for endless ocean views. Large glass walls and windows, modern decor and an office - the owner plans to spend a lot of time on board the yacht and equipped it with a teleconference screen, printers, scanners, etc. - it resembles a modern loft-style penthouse in the heart of Manhattan, but in the middle of the sea . One of the most unique features will be a fully integrated glass shower next to the owner's bed. Taking a shower in the main bedroom, being anchored in the bay, you will feel one with the water. The aft cabin, the main saloon and the galley are decorated in a European style, showing contemporary art from Milan, with large open spaces, elegant finishes and finishes, as well as a smooth transition between the interior and the exterior. The 42-meter Ilumen three-story deck has a helipad. On the upper deck there is a relaxation area with a yoga studio, Technogym exercise machines, a smoothie bar, a hot tub and a small pool. A beach club and four guest cabins are located on the lower deck. The engine room is also downstairs, but you will never know about it, because Dominator installs heat and sound-absorbing insulation so expertly that the heat and noise remain behind the closed doors of the engine room.

Zero Emission Concept SY200 by Philippe Briand
Innovations in megayacht eco-design seem endless. One of the first designers to take a step forward in this direction in 2020 was a marine engineer, Philip Briand. From the headquarters of his studio in London, he presents the concept of sailing in superyachts, which puts zero-emission navigation at the center of all decisions.The latest concept from the French designer appeared after he was motivated to create a “zero-emission yacht”. This is the second concept from the new Briand family of self-contained yachts, which is on the heels of the 90-meter SY300. Briand previously described the SY200 as the "younger sister" of the SY300.The SY200 will travel in two ways: boat sails and underwater turbines, with which it will collect electricity for the 20 batteries that it will carry in its hold.According to Briand, the length of the yacht is 75 meters, and the sail is 2,000 meters, it generates more than 2,000 kW at maximum speed. To do this, he designed a helmet inspired by high-class, shorter sailboats. In particular, he emphasizes his inverted nose and central glass capsule.Ketch is equipped with a carbon fiber mast and rigging, as well as the same modern hull and upturned nose as the SY 300. Briand estimates the power of the yacht is 500 kW when sailing at a speed of 15 knots and 200 kW at a power of 12 knots."I believe we need to embrace ‘lateral thinking’ when it comes to the future of sailing yacht design. We want to work alongside owners to create the perfect renewable energy machine, using only wind, water and solar energy to run the yacht and provide an exceptional experience of peace on board and exploration of the sea.” - Briand said.At speeds of 15 and 12 knots, he expects to add 500 kW and 200 kW, respectively, which will allow him to generate enough energy on board to enjoy her 12 cabins.On board the vessel can accommodate up to 10 guests. Master-suite leads to a large terrace with a jacuzzi and four large guest cabins. The dining table with 16 seats in the cab is protected from the sun and boasts panoramic views.
Oyster's founder Matthews returns to its board
Richard Matthews, original founder of Oyster Yachts, has returned to its board as a non-executive director. This follows Richard Hadida buying the company in 2018. Matthews had founded the sailing yacht manufacturer back in 1973.Oyster Yachts built its first 32ft sailing boat in 1973. From there it gradually extended its range of sailing yachts finding its sweet spot in 56ft to 125ft units designed by Robert Humphreys. In 2008 the company was sold to private equity firm Balmoral Capital for £70 million, before the firm disposed of it to HTP Investments for £15 million in 2012.Following a failure of the internal hull structure on Polina Star III, an Oyster 825 model, which led to the yacht sinking in 2015. This led to a recall of 4 other units and a dent in the builder's cash flow despite a £83 million order book in 2017. The following year, the company went into administration, before being purchased by Richard Hadida.Hadida is mostly known for founding Evolution Gaming, a company that powers most online casino games and currently trades on the Swedish stock market with a market cap of near €5 billion. His fried, yacht owner and automotive mogul Eddie Jordan was formerly also involved in the takeover bid with Oyster but later backed out."It is hugely important to me personally that the founder of the brand [Richard Matthews] I hold so close to my heart has given it his seal of approval by joining our board." Hadida explained. "Having restored the company to its former glory with the support of a fantastic team – from talented craftsmen to dedicated management – this feels like confirmation that Oyster is once again synonymous with quality and excellence, just as it was when Richard founded it back in 1973".
The New Grand Soleil 44 presented on Boot
Yesterday, at the Boot exhibition in Dusseldorf, Il Cantiere del Pardo presented the new Grand Soleil 44 Performance. This is a project of Matteo Polly, the best designer in the offshore sector, rated, which is designed to become a reference boat in the racing sector ORC. The new Cantiere del Pardo challenge is called Grand Soleil 44. To win this bid, the shipyard turned to a designer who was best able to interpret the concept of a sports building on racetracks around the world in recent years. This new 44-foot kit complements the Grand Soleil Yachts Performance range, designed for more sporty owners looking for a high-performance boat that can deliver results even in a regatta, located between the GS 34, GS 48 and GS 58. As already noted on board the Grand Soleil 48, the GS 44 will also be available in two versions: the layout will be more suitable for cruising, with a different layout of the sail and deck plan to simplify maneuvers, the other will be more Race for the best on the regatta. Style and elegance complement the DNA of this new 44-foot footer, which feels a family of other models in this line. Despite the very light and sporty body, the liveliness of the interior is surprising in how much volume you can use and perceive. Following the trends of the latest Grand Soleil Performance models, even on 44-foot deck places, both for racing and for enjoying a boat on a cruise, they are truly remarkable, the dimensions of the cabin are significantly increased compared to all previous models. Among the distinguishing characteristics of the boat is the location of the mast in a rather opposite direction, which will increase the sail area for bow sails in order to maximize the characteristics taking into account the average Mediterranean conditions. A choice that also allowed the cabin layout to be promoted and thus have a larger cabin than previous models. The interior layout includes three cabins and two bathrooms. The spaces below the deck have a generous beam that offers large and comfortable volumes: the kitchen is located on the left, the dining room consists of a comfortable sofa with a dining table in the center, which can accommodate up to 8 persons. Master-suite, with a comfortable double bed, a sofa and a private bathroom, is really large for a 44-foot case with a sporty character. To make the interior even more comfortable, there is a wonderful natural brightness that penetrates through the various windows of the hull and onto the deck.
