The Monaco-based boutique yacht builder Dynamiq has revealed their full global range of innovative explorer yachts during the Monaco Yacht Show 2019, offering high-end Dutch engineering by Van Oossanen Naval Architects and high quality construction in a relatively compact design package at an affordable price.
Designed with long-range passages in mind, the new series will be available in four versions: G300 (30.5 metres), G350 (35 metres), G380 (38 metres) and G440 (44 metres). With every following length configuration, the vessel’s interior volume increases by 100 GT. Thus, starting with the G300 of 200 GT, the G350 features 299GT, the G380 is 399GT, and the 440 is 499GT.
During the presentation, Sergei Dobroserdov, Dynamiq founder and CEO, highlighted that the yard is not going to increase the LOAs of the vessels they produce, since they are satisfied with the demand their “smaller” explorers have on the market. Furthermore, he emphasised the significance of a smaller size explorers, that would only enable their owners to reach the most difficult marine spots.
Following up on client requests, we have been looking at the explorer market for quite a while and this year we decided to come into the game with something completely different for our more adventurous owners. Instead of slow, steel-hulled explorers with the typical commercial styling, we drew on our forward-thinking approach to create a fast and modern series of vessels.

We specifically designed the Global yachts to be below 45m to match a much broader type of client and their families. Moreover, thanks to their compact size they can truly explore and enter the small bays and inlets where bigger yachts can’t get near.
The Dynamiq G300 is a smart superyacht offering an impressive top speed of 19 knots and oceanic range of 4,000 nautical miles. Featuring a transformable upper deck salon with a real fireplace, the G300 comes with an inflatable pool of 5x6 metres as standard that can be attached to the stern of the yacht – ideal for both adults and children. The G300 is the only boat in the range with the master cabins on the lower deck, one of the most comfortable positions on-board any superyacht.
The Dynamiq G350 is a full-aluminium vessel with a beam of 8.5 metres and a draft of only 1.8 metres. Powered by twin MAN V8 1200 engines, she will have a top speed of 16 knots and very economical consumption of just 62 litres per hour at 10 knots. A generous gross tonnage of 299GT provides quite roomy interiors with a light-filled main salon and 5 guest cabins, including a full-beam master cabin with two fixed balconies on the main deck.
The G380 is the only yacht in the range with a steel hull for extreme motion comfort on board with minimal noise and vibrations. Standout features of the tri-decker include a master suite that has two fixed balconies, a large wheelhouse with panoramic views, a beach club complete with sauna, a spacious sundeck and a range of 4,500 nautical miles at cruising speed.
The Global flagship is the G440, the largest in the series at 499 gross tons. It has a remarkable top speed of 17 knots with modest MAN V8-1200 engines and a range of 5.000 nautical miles at 10 knots. The G440 also features a large aft garage for two 23-foot tenders and a touch-and-go helipad engineered for helicopters with a D-value of 10 metres.
All the Global superyachts feature a main deck salon with full-height windows and a fireplace, as well as an aft deck sauna (except the G300) and a garage with room for diving and fishing equipment, as well as a 5x6-metre inflatable pool. Every Global yacht will also be equipped as standard with a DJI Drone, 100m-range ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) and a Premium Celestron telescope.
The functional exterior styling of the series has been developed in-house by Dobroserdov Design, while the Fast Displacement Hull Form has been developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, Dynamiq’s long-term technical partner in the Netherlands. Meanwhile, the units will be built at the brand’s shipyard in Massa, Tuscany.
Perry van Oossanen, Managing Director at Van Oossanen Naval Architects, claimed:
Lightweight, round-bilge hulls with a fine entry are the best choice for long range navigation if you want to travel in real comfort. That also means smaller engines, less consumption and more range. For the G350 we developed a special edition fast displacement hull with a wide body, long roll period and an exceptional top speed for the size and type of vessel. By reducing pitching, our patented Hull Vane adds efficiency and even more comfort.
Base prices, as well as a vast list of options, are available online via the Dynamiq configurator at www.bedynamiq.com. The price of the smallest one, G300, starts from EUR 9,150,000, with a delivery time of 22 months.
Dynamiq was started as a company in 2011 by experienced yacht broker Sergei Dobroserdov, who assembled a ‘dream team' of world thinkers, yacht designers and naval architects to turn the GTT and Global concept into reality.
Dynamiq is the first company to introduce an online configurator, allowing the yacht to be easily and transparently customised down to the last detail. They unveiled their first launch, the 39-metre Jetsetter, at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016. The following project, the GTT 115, was developed in collaboration with the renowned Studio F.A. Porsche and successfully unveiled at the 2017 MYS. The latest addition to the GTT fleet is the currently-in-build GTT 135 (41m) to be delivered in summer 2020.

DLBA Naval Architects created a new artificial intelligence concept, that makes it possible for some systems to be operated without any human interference.A new artificial intelligence concept which DLBA Naval Architects has been working on for some months not only means smarter operation onboard yachts, it means some systems can be operated with the human element removed when need be.DLBA has selected a 58m superyacht concept to develop internally as an autonomous yacht. The result, TEMPO, will be a study in all vessel systems where artificial intelligence can be used to enhance an owner’s experience onboard.There are three main areas where autonomous technology can be used in the maritime world - navigational autonomy, equipment health monitoring, and mechanical and electrical systems automation. All reduce the need for human input while increasing efficiency.Navigation autonomy relieves the workload on the vessel operator, and unmanned vessels have been operating in the commercial and military space for years. Hull, mechanical and electrical automation is like having an onboard engineering team at your fingertips. By ensuring elements at the sub-system level are AI-ready, the vessel can be kept operating at peak performance, efficiently. The number and complexity of auxiliary systems and equipment onboard yachts is increasing year-on-year, and with that comes the increasing demand on crews’ time to interpret feedback from the systems - equipment health monitoring lessens this demand on crew time.
