Couach reveals designs for new 3700 sport model
French yacht builder Chantier Naval Couach has released the first visuals of its newly reimagined 37-metre superyacht. Between presence and power, the 3700 Sport Couach is a sporty and elegant yacht. Our in-house creative and technical teams have reinterpreted its identity and design to come up with a yacht as intelligent and modern as it is seductiveWalter Ceglia, Couach CEOThe 3700 Sport takes design cues from the world of luxury automobiles as well as contemporary architecture and naval design. It is available in a four- or five-cabin arrangement, complemented by ample glazing to amplify the interior’s natural light. The large main saloon, incorporating lounging and dining areas, offers a feeling of space for a sport yacht, with accommodation for up to 10 guests tended to by six crew. The released renderings of the 3700 Sport’s interiors suggest an ethnic and light design theme, with a neutral palette of wood finishes, hand-crafted details and materials that can be tailored to any buyer’s tastes. The expansive duplex aft deck features a “bathing beach” fitted out with a shower, umbrella, diving board and swim ladder, just steps away from the multi-purpose cockpit with sun loungers and dining area. Space in the yacht’s tender garage allows for a five-metre tender for adventures ashore, as well as a jetski for fun on water. The flybridge is one of the main areas for enjoyment for many yacht owners, and the 3700 Sport will not disappoint. Couach’s designers imagined a space similar to a contemporary beachfront villa, with expansive, panoramic views and all amenities easily at hand. There is an outdoor kitchen and grill, with areas for relaxing, dining and sunbathing. An ultra-modern Jacuzzi could be added to the flybridge layout, which is fully customisable to a buyer’s personal preferences. Performance wise the yacht has a top speed of 28 knots (24 knots for cruising) and exceptional manoeuvrability. The hull would be constructed in GRP, while her draft of 1.85 metres means she can venture into secluded shallow bays. The Arcachon-based company has recently delivered 44.8-metre 4400 Fast Fly to her owners.

Genting Group: The entrance of a new giant from Asia into yachting
Malaysia-based entertainment conglomerate, Genting Group has increased its ownership stake in Italian shipyard, Wider to a 100% through its cruise line arm, Genting Hong Kong, expanding its interests in the yachting space further.Established by Tilli Antonelli, former CEO of Pershing (acquired by Ferretti Group), Wider Yachts was established in 2010 with first a 13-meter model, the Wider 42, whose prime selling point became the extendable platform located amidst ship.Wider's plans to build larger yachts were however publicly introduced in 2011 when Antonelli announced the Wider 150. A year later the 47-meter was under construction, following a switch from composite to aluminium and other design changes.According to the Timeline index, the Wider 150 was sold in May 2013 with a last recorded asking price of near €22 million. In 2015, the newly named Genesi was made available for sale once again by the shipyard asking €26,5 million and ultimately sold to a Canadian buyer in December 2016, who renamed her to Bartali. Genting's involvement with Wider however began back in December 2012 when the conglomerate made an investment in the Italian shipyard via a capital increase that saw it gain a 50% stake in the company. "I decided to back Wider as I was impressed both with its course of development and its ability to establish itself on the international market." commented Genting's chairmain, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay at the time of the investment.The Malaysian conglomerate's involvement with Wider Yachts didn't however limit itself to it owning 50% of the company as the Genting Group also bankrolled the ongoing construction of Project Cecilia, the first Wider 165, as well as ordered 4 smaller Wider models from the shipyard, as a regulatory filling from December 2014 shows. Project Cecilia is currently for sale with a last recorded asking price of €30 million, however should a sale not occur prior to its Q1 2018 delivery, it is likely that the Genting Group will take delivery of the yacht. At the time of the sale of the Wider 150, the shipyard stated that Genesi was originally intended for the current owner of Project Cecilia, which is the Genting Group as fillings show.The Malaysian group's interests in yachting do not limit themselves to Wider Yachts as Genting Group owned a 24,85% stake in Grand Banks Yachts in December 2014 as well as a 15% stake in luxury submarine manufacturer U-Boat worx. Regulatory fillings in December 2014 valued the group's yachting interest, including its share in Wider, at just under $38 million.Genting's chairmain, Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, whose net worth is valued at $4,5 billion by Forbes, became involved in U-Boat worx through an investment he made back in December 2013. "This is an innovative product that offers the unique experience of deep-sea exploration and ocean diving without getting into scuba gear" commented Genting's chairman at the time of the investment.In 2015, Genting Hong Kong acquired a majority stake in Lloyd Werft, the German shipyard at which it had several cruise ships on order for its Crystal Cruises line, for €17,5 million. Mostly known for cruise ship construction, Lloyd Werft is also the shipyard behind the construction of 114-meter explorer, Luna for Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich now owned by Farkhad Akhmedov.The Genting Group's expanding interest in the yachting business in recent years comes in a strong trend of large corporations from Asia entering yachting. Indeed, in January 2012, Chinese conglomerate, Weichai acquired a controlling stake in Ferretti Group, which recently posted profits for the first time since 2008. In 2013, Sunseeker was acquired by the China-based, Wanda Group. In 2016 Lai Sun Group acquired near half of Camper & Nicholsons International.
Azimut Yachts unveils more details of Grande 35m
Azimut Yachts has announced the sale of another unit of the Grande 35 Metri, the new flagship of the fleet, in February 2017. The yacht has been officially presented to the market during the recent Versilia Yachting Rendezvous. Azimut Grande 35 Metri will be the biggest boat in the Grande Collection, the high-end Collection of Azimut Yachts. She will offer two beach clubs (one in the stern and one in the bow), a side garage for the tender and a jet ski, the possibility of adding a third deck to provide a more secluded sunbathing area, and a solution that provides the owner’s suite with the biggest extending terrace available on the market. The design also features a carbon fiber superstructure, a wave piercer and noise & vibration containment. Exterior design is by Stefano Righini, whilst her interiors will be styled by the famous designer Achille Salvagni, included by AD Collector in its list of the world’s top 100 designers.The highpoint of the owner’s suite is its unique private balcony, which is unprecedented on a 35 meter yacht. Using a mechanism that is highly sophisticated but extremely straightforward, the section of the full-height window with a carbon fiber frame folds out, while the floor of the balcony extends from under the cabin, protected by automatic pop up stanchions. The result is the Instant Balcony, with no uprights or other obstacles to spoil the panoramic view from the owner’s suite. The Azimut Yachts division, which specializes in yachts in the 12 to 35-meter range and generates about 50% of the Azimut Benetti Group’s total turnover, grew twice as fast as the market average in the four months from September to December 2016.
