Nauta Design presents the 54m Wide – a new concept with pure lines and original layout solutions conceived for modern family lifestyles afloat. The low-slung exterior lines are typical of Nauta’s sleek and simple styling and despite being a high-volume yacht for her length, the Nauta 54m Wide looks poised and graceful on the water. But it is principally the interior layout that makes this steel and aluminium motoryacht concept different from any other in her class.
“The basic concept behind the Nauta 54m Wide started with requests from clients who wanted plenty of room on board to accommodate a family in comfort, but not a yacht that was too big to moor in picturesque places like St Tropez or intimate bays in the Balearics,” explains Mario Pedol, co-founder of Nauta Design in Milan. “So instead of focussing on length overall, we widened the beam to 11 meters and developed an innovative general arrangement.”
Master suite is located on the main deck. The large walk-in wardrobe in the master stateroom is cleverly placed to eliminate any possible noise from the galley filtering into the owner’s area. A VIP suite to starboard opposite the galley can also be used as a cabin for staff or children.
The main salon and dining room, with sliding glass side doors on both sides, look over the open aft deck and double stairs down to the swim platform.
The yacht features Nauta’s patented ‘The Island’ system of folding platforms that create an uninterrupted walkway embracing three sides of the large beach club, which doubles as a garage for water toys and a tender of almost 9m, for a total surface area of 100 sqm.
Ordinarily, the beach club/tender garage would be followed by the engine room, but here the engine room is located on the under-lower deck. That’s why there is room for six ensuite guest cabins (alternatively a cabin can be transformed into a gym and spa).
A crew mess, dedicated laundry and accommodation for crew are located on the lower deck forward.
The upper deck has cabins for both the captain and the first officer as well as a ship’s office behind the wheelhouse – unheard on a 54 m yacht. The sky lounge is a more intimate chill-out zone ideal for watching TV and the open aft deck is furnished for al fresco dining.
A final highlight is the 137 sqm of sundeck equipped with a forward hot tub, surrounding loungers, dining under the hardtop and a large bar-barbecue unit aft.
The naval architecture for the Nauta 54m Wide is by Francesco Rogantin's Studio Names and the initial engineering has already been completed.
“We’re very pleased with the Nauta 54m Wide for various reasons,” says Mario Pedol: “We’ve managed to combine high volume with a very elegant profile, but it is smart solutions like the engine room on the under-lower deck that make the yacht much more livable for large family groups.”
Nauta Design was founded by Massimo Gino and Mario Pedol in 1985. Their design included the yachts for Southern Wind, projects with Baltic Yachts, but were also asked to create motor yachts of all sizes (up to 180 m) such as the exterior profile of the Lürssen megayacht Azzam.

On 18th June 2021 Lürssen unveiled and launched project Enzo, a striking and bespoke 115m superyacht, built for a repeat client who previously owned an 86m Lürssen. Nuvolari Lenard was responsible for the exterior and interior design and Moran Yacht & Ship managed and supervised the project, all bringing with them their wide spectrum of experience and consolidated knowledge. The target for Enzo was to create a healthy and family-focused life on board, with numerous offerings for sports and activities including the extra-large gym on the skylounge deck and the spacious wellness area on the lower deck. She was also designed to travel to her destinations in the utmost comfort. “Enzo’s design language is all about connecting her six decks – both the naval and tech elements with the living space – into one whole,” says Dan Lenard. “Her three decks integrated into the high bow guarantee sea-keeping in true ocean conditions, while also allowing her an innovative full-beam owner suite duplex.”As with all Lürssens, the yacht is equipped with state-of-the art technology and engineering systems. A heat recovery system in the generators heats the water for the pool, leading to reduced electrical power and emissions, while Dynamic Positioning enables electronic anchoring in sensitive and remote areas, protecting the seabed and allowing for safe mooring regardless of water depth.Enzo will be delivered during the year. Lürssen is a German shipyard with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack and shipbuilding facilities in Lemwerder, Berne and Bremen-Aumund. Founded in 1875, Lürssen is one of the world's leading builders of custom luxury superyachts and has launched many of the largest yachts in the global fleet, including Octopus, Rising Sun, and Azzam.Credits: Lürssen/Klaus Jordan

REV Ocean was established in Fornebu, Norway, in 2017, with a critical mission to facilitate a new generation of ocean solutions and raise awareness of global impacts on the marine environment. The main platform to achieve this important mission is developing the world’s most advanced research and expedition vessel – REV Ocean. An extensive team of world-leading experts have been hired, and a broad network of science, research and innovation partners have submitted proposals to achieve our ocean saving mission.The vessel is currently under construction at the Vard Brattvåg shipyard in Norway. But the delivery has been "beset by delays caused by the yard" and could potentially not be in operation until 2026. REV Ocean/Bogdan Vasilescu“Over the past year, the construction of the REV Ocean vessel has been beset by delays caused by the yard. Due to the substantial delay from the yard, there is a right to cancel the contract. However, this right has so far not been used. The top priority for the owner is delivery of a compliant research and expedition vessel. Despite this setback, the REV Ocean ambition remains the same – One Healthy Ocean. During this time we will continue to implement our overarching mission, but as a result of the extended delay of the ship, all vessel-related activities will temporarily be put on hold. Unfortunately, this will have consequences for our entire team, but the intention is to reconstitute when the vessel is closer to completion,” says REV Ocean team. <iframe width=560 height=315 src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/IbZuaFZOQEo title=YouTube video player frameborder=0 allow=accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture allowfullscreen></iframe>The team will continue to work together with staff to find the best opportunities in this “challenging interim phase”.Credits: Rev Ocean; REV Ocean/Bogdan Vasilescu

Arcadia Yacht’s 24m Sherpa 80 XL has been selected for the "Mobility" category of the ADI Design Index 2020, not least because the reason for the choice is the perfect embodiment of the Arcadia philosophy: "A yacht in which the user is both in contact with nature, and respecting it: the main on-board facilities and functions are powered by solar panels, the aft deck is fully in line with the sea while the living area has extensive opening windows. The IPS engines and semi-planing hull ensure fuel efficiency at approximately 25% higher cruising speed than yachts of a similar size." The ADI Design Index is a collection of the best products in each category selected by the Permanent Design Observatory."Behind every edition of the Index is the work of the ADI Permanent Design Observatory," says Antonella Andriani, ADI Vice President. "Over 150 experts from all disciplines – designers, entrepreneurs, researchers, specialist journalists. This scouting and discussion work lasts throughout the year and guarantees a well-considered choice and the quality of the selected items’ design."One of the strengths of the design of the Sherpa 80 XL, developed in cooperation with the Hot Lab design studio, is the direct contact with the sea and the surrounding environment, which is highlighted in the aft deck. This area is directly connected to the stern control platform by a short scenic sequence of steps, where the narrow topsides gracefully interlock with the low volume that supports the sundeck. This free space, nearly 65 sq. m in size, is available at any time of the day. The strong interaction with the surrounding environment is also reflected in the design of the interiors, characterised by sophisticated furniture items in a sober, essential style, in which simple geometries emphasise volumes, making the best use of the available space and offering the greatest possible comfort when living aboard. In addition, new outfitting processes have made it possible to optimise assembly times and use quality furniture.Arcadia Yachts is based in Naples, Italy. Since 2008, they have been building semi-custom luxury composite yachts and have succeeded in perfectly integrating artisanal craftsmanship, modern technologies, and attention to detail and the surrounding environment. The Arcadia Yachts fleet has included two ranges since September 2016. The shipyard’s first and most characterising range is the A range, which includes four models (A85, A85s, A105 and A115). The Sherpa range has a new model, the 24m Sherpa XL, which was launched at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival. Credits: Arcadia Yachts

Silent-Yachts, the innovative Austrian shipyard, opens two new offices on both sides of the Atlantic. A new European office is now open in Port Adriano – Mallorca, one of the leading yacht harbours in the West Med.A Silent 55 and Silent 64 are docked in front of the office, ready to take clients to the sea for a test drive. Later this summer the new Silent 60 with a kitewing will also arrive at Port Adriano.“Our new base is like our second home”, said Michael Köhler, Silent-Yachts Founder and CEO. “Mallorca and the Balearics in general are popular yachting destinations, sunny, warm, with clean azure seas and many amazing places that have to be visited on board a yacht. The new office helps us keep our solar electric catamarans close to our clients and partners – we’re always open for a chat, visit or sea trial.”Another office will be opened in the US. In order to get closer to customers, the shipyard’s exclusive US distributor Edward Sacks sets up a branch in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the yachting capital of the Western Hemisphere. “Florida is the hot spot for the US yachting enthusiasts and we’re happy to take a seat in the region,” said Michael Köhler. “The location is close to the site of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, it has direct water access and a comfortable conference room for product demonstrations.”Silent-Yachts is producing the world’s first fully solar-sustainable oceangoing production catamaran yachts. They are powered exclusively by solar energy and capable of cruising up to 100 miles per day. In 2009, founders Heike and Michael Köhler, who have spent 6,000 days cruising more than 75,000 miles all around the world, launched the Solarwave 46, the first fully self-sufficient blue-water catamaran after years of testing solar-powered propulsion, and they have been building boats ever since.
