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.
Sunreef Yachts has revealed a 40 metre catamaran explorer concept. The yard adds an unstoppable explorer concept to the shipyard’s range of luxury catamarans. The 40M Sunreef Power is a versatile multihull craft dedicated to discovering new horizons. Her propulsion options allow for transoceanic range and solid performance in rough seas.Blending elegance and modern technology, the 40M Sunreef Power can be heavily customized to match ambitious navigation plans. The extended aft deck houses a launching crane, a 7m tender, two jet skis and storage for a variety of water toys. With the hydraulic aft platform lowered, guests can enjoy a full-beam private beach.The superyacht’s 13,34m beam provides for immense living areas totaling 654m² with accommodation spread across three decks. Custom features available for this concept include a playroom with a self-leveling pool table, a steam room or a master suite with a private fold-out balcony.⠀Alfresco relaxation areas include a large sun lounge with a spa pool surrounded by oversized sunpads and a bar as well as a vast bow terrace.

How to design a yacht for Freddie Mercury and Forrest Gump? Feadship reveals new 109m Superyacht concept
If you could combine rock star level partying with down-to-earth innovative design, what kind of superyacht would you end up with? Meet Project FG (Freddy Gump), a Feadship design created for the fictional combination of Freddy Mercury and Forrest Gump. It is the latest design to be revealed from the “Carte Blanch Exclusives” archives.⠀The 109-metre Project FG came to life during the Feadship Brokers Course in 2019. Together with the Feadship design team from Studio De Voogt, the invited brokers created a design for a wild – but down to earth – Freddy Gump. In a few days’ time, Project FG was born as a technically feasible design that allows for wild partying at night and peaceful relaxation during daytime.More than 200 people can party in the outdoor beach club. Hidden from the outside world, FG includes a mysterious hidden club in the bow of the yacht for exclusive private gatherings.Marsha Van Buitenen and Jan Schaffers in conversation. Credit: FeadshipFeadship sales director Marsha Van Buitenen says:“The group wanted a character that embodied extremes. They thought about a client that one hand has a party attitude but on the other is very down to earth as well. They combined a fictional character and a real character to dream up the client – for the down to earth side, it was Forest Gump, and for the wilder side, it was Freddie Mercury. With that, Freddie Gump as born.”On the aft deck there is a huge outdoor beach club, which is four times larger than Feadship designed “Savannah”. This beach club accommodates parties of up to 300 people while a panoramic piano lounge on the upper deck acts as the heart of the superyacht and the meeting point of the two personalities – a place that both Freddie Mercury and Forrest Gump could retire to as dusk falls and from where the rest of the yacht design branches out into the individual elements of each character.Other unique design elements of Project FG include a pop-up table tennis court on the tip of the bow that features a glass tube that “pops up” at the push of a button and encloses the table-tennis table so that the players are protected from the effects of the wind.One particular design feature that certainly caters to the rockstar inspirations of Freddie Mercury is the hidden club for where the really crazy parties happen – even crazier than those happening on the aft deck. Guests are not given directions on how to get there but instead have to find a hidden door past an engine in the superyacht’s belly.While Project FG Freddie Gump has yet to find an owner, the technically feasible Feadship design is still open for the kind of owner with an appreciation for wild nights of partying like Mercury and peaceful days of relaxation.Farouk Nefzi, Feadship marketing and brand director, says:There are so many future concepts coming out, but they are simply designed for 50 years from now. That too easy. Everybody can dream but to create something using technology that's applicable today, if you just have the will to do it, that's what we're showcasing. We feel like we can bring some joy to people's life by showcasing the possibilities that we are able to do right now. If you look at these designs, they trigger people to move forward and leverage on the existing technology. We want to showcase what is possible and not be dominated by the generics of this industry. It's very easy to make baby steps into what the next stage of yachting should be. We think we could really speed up the process if we find clients ready and wanting to invest in this.

Avanguardia, meaning ‘vanguard’ in English, is the latest luxury yacht concept from Italian designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini, known for his unique watercraft concepts. This mega yacht proposal takes its name from the positioning of the control tower, which also resembles the head of a swan.Like other Lazzarini creations, Avanguardia is also modular, and the owner can pair it with Lazzarini-made jet capsules.With the inspiration for the 'head' stemming from a 1970s Japanese manga, the swan ‘head’ functions as a control tower to maneuver the 137-metre long yacht.This isn’t just for aesthetics, as the control tower can be lowered down to water level and detach from the main vessel, transforming into an auxiliary 16-metre boat, while a second control point aboard Avanguardia keeps her in motion.Avanguardia is subdivided into 5 decks, which include two helipads each with a hangar, a swimming pool, Jacuzzi and an abundance of sunbathing and social areas for up to 60 guests while cruising. There is the potential for even more guests for dockside events.As for the overnight accomodation, Avanguardia sleeps up 24 guests as well as 12 staff and a crew of just 10.The imagined propulsion is conceived with twin fully-electric side engines, as well as a central MTU Rolls-Royce engine which would enable the yacht to reach a maximum cruising speed of 18 knots.Lazzarini says the extreordinary yacht can become a reality. To turn this concept into reality, a client has invest $500 million USD in the build.

The interior of the 48m hull #10233 intended for a South American owner has been revealed for the first time.The interior of this yacht, curated by the Interior Design of Baglietto in collaboration with the tastes of a refined and highly experienced Owner, is defined by "sobriety, calmness and elegance". Natural and warm colors of bronze and ocher compliment the soft shades of brown that personalize the rooms, which are characterized by the use of few, but precious materials, aimed at creating an ever-unique contrasting harmony. Accents in glossy dark wood against the neutral oak background of walls and floors cut out furnishing elements, consoles, and wardrobes, embellished with bronzed inserts, which together with soft shapes and radiated walls create a uniform and welcoming living space.The exterior bears the sign of Francesco Paszkowski Design and presents stylistic and functional improvements that enhance the value of a well-established platform.The vessel has a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. It offers incredible volumes and outside areas that are both exquisite and unique – including a vast 140-square-meter sun deck.The stern has a big pool with tanning beds. Still, those looking for soothing shadows can unwind by the roll-bar and lunch area, which has a coffee-bar, barbecue grill, and refrigerator, and is directly connected to the galley thanks to a dumb waiter.A wide sun-bathing area is located forward to this deck. The rounded shape of this deck offers a 360-degree view that is enhanced by glass bulwarks. As per the Owner’s request, a crystal lift connects the decks, including the sun deck.Compared to her two sisterships – M/Y Andiamo and M/Y Silver Fox – , this model has a different layout for the upper deck, which offers more space to the sky lounge and extends to the outside thanks to a semi-circular window. This layout creates a winter garden that houses a comfortable dining table for 12 guests. The large, full-height windows with no obstructions both on this deck and the main deck allow natural light to enter and provide a direct connection to the sea.Another key feature is the lower deck’s layout, which includes two large double cabins that can be transformed into four double cabins thanks to a sliding partition wall. This feature was explicitly requested by the Owner, who now has three real master suites. Finally, the aft 46-square-meter beach area includes a relaxation space and a spa with fully-equipped gym and steam bath. The tenders and two jet skis are found at the bow.The motorization with MTU 12V2000M72 has been slightly de-rated from the previous model, a choice that highlights the shipyard’s environmental responsibility without losing performance. The yacht can easily cruise at a maximum speed of 15 knots and 11 knots of cruising speed.The yacht is currently under construction at the shipyard in La Spezia with the supervision of Camper & Nicholsons International New Build Division, as well as the Owner’s technical advisor and project manager. Hull no. 10233 will be delivered to her Owner during the summer of 2021.
