38m Cocoon Delivered by Moonen
The Moonen Yachts has delivered the 37.8-meter yacht Cocoon after successful sea trials on the North Sea in January. Following speed runs and maneuvering trials on inland waters, the Moonen Yachts sea trial team took the yacht out during heavy mid-winter conditions for her endurance test.The Dutch North Sea lived up to its reputation as the ideal location to test ship systems under full load. The endurance trial concluded a five-day period during which Moonen Yachts put the systems, machinery, equipment and electronics to the test in actual operational conditions. After seeing how the yacht behaved in a heavy sea state, Cocoon’s Captain Kaela Bermeister was very happy with the yacht’s first real day at sea.Kaela Bermeister“We got to experience testing conditions, wind and swell on our way from the sea trial area towards Rotterdam,” says Kaela. “During these rocky conditions it’s a great chance to listen for any rattles and creaks that need improving, and generally just be on the lookout for those small details that need adapting before we take over.” Cocoon is the fourth hull built on the award-winning Moonen Martinique semi-custom platform. She has an exterior design by Dutch designer René van der Velden and naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design. A2B Marine Projects is heading up the owner team with Christian Poorte as the owner representative. The yacht can accommodate 12 guests on board and has a worldwide 2-year warranty, as a part of Moonen’s policy on all new builds. Moonen Yachts is a yacht builder based in the Netherlands, and its first yacht was built in 1964 under the original yard name of De Ruiter. In 1981, the yard was renamed Moonen Shipyards. It’s launching its first vessel under new ownership: Alhena. In 2017 Moonen Shipyards changed into Moonen Yachts. With the help of strong vision, innovative technology and new designers, Moonen is once again becoming the market leader in 30m to 50m luxury yachts.Credits: Moonen Yachts

She can accommodate 12 guests between seven cabins, including a private master suite at the owner’s deck. The hidden terrace, a hot tub and a spa tube is attached. <iframe src= width=560 height=314 style=border:none;overflow:hidden scrolling=no frameborder=0 allowfullscreen=true allow=autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; picture-in-picture; web-share allowFullScreen=true></iframe>Her notable features included a large room with bar and game area on the main deck, the sea view gym, spa with hammam, the cinema and library on the sky lounge.

First B.Now 50M With the Oasis Deck Launched by Benetti
The first B.Now 50M with the Oasis Deck® was launched yesterday at the Livorno yard. This superyacht is the first steel unit in the family to introduce the Oasis Deck beach area solutions that has rewritten the history of the Benetti. The new model has been built for an experienced owner who was impressed by the style and design of 107m gigayacht Lana and the adventurous Oasis 34M and wanted to replicate the solutions proposed by Benetti in these two models on her own yacht, which has many of the features typically found on much larger custom vessels. B.Now 50M Oasis Deck® is the first model in the B.Now family to be equipped with the Oasis Deck® solution and precedes the 60-, 67- and 72-meter maxi yachts penned by the visionary RWD. The UK-based firm has developed for this yacht a design to meet the aspirations of a new generation of owners seeking a more convivial and less formal onboard lifestyle, but one that is always in close contact with the water. Hence the absence of bulwarks and ceilings hindering the view out over the water, so that the owner and their guests can enjoy the sensory benefits it brings even when at anchor. The focus of convivial living on board remains the Oasis Deck®, a feast for the eyes with the de rigueur infinity pool just steps from the water’s edge. The right combination of sun and shade means that guests can enjoy this chic private oasis at any time of day, while the even larger space created by opening the platform is ideal as an open-air relaxation area. The interior was developed by the Benetti Style Department and worked in close collaboration with the customer’s team to bring a timeless elegance to FB605, one that fully reflects the aesthetic sensibility of an owner who wanted to choose all the marble used on board herself. Flooded with light that pours in through the extensive glazing, the various settings feature alternating light and dark colors, establishing a harmonious rhythm underscored by the materials used on the walls, where curly maple wood panels are interspersed with printed leather inserts. The light that plays a central role in the interior design is pointed up by golden elements, Lalique crystal inserts, and custom lamps made from the same onyx used for the tops. Top fashion and design names can also be found on board, such as Armani fabrics on the guest cabin walls and the Hermes sofa and armchair in the lounge on the upper deck. The other notable features are the ethanol fireplace in the lounge on the upper deck and the gym area on the same deck.Founded in 1873, Benetti is the oldest Italian shipyard specializing in luxury yachts. They design, build and sell composite vessels from 29 to 44m and steel and aluminum boats from 37 to over 100m. Their fleet consists of five categories: Class, Oasis, B.Yond, B.Now and Custom, to meet all the needs of the market, and they belong to the Azimut|Benetti Group, the largest privately owned luxury yachting group in the world.Credits: Benetti
Two Hulls of New 40MXP Sold by Numarine
Numarine has sold two hulls of its newest model 40MXP. The new 39-meter 40MXP retains Numarine’s high-volume, low-hassle, long-range ethos while offering several new design features that open up new opportunities to enjoy the intimate connection with the sea. The interior design and exterior lines come from Can Yalman. She can accommodate 12 guests across six suites, including a full-beam main deck master and a full-beam lower deck VIP. The ‘MXP’ stands for Mediterranean Explorer, but the reference is not suggestive of a cruising limitation of the design – rather, it reflects the beach-club lifestyle typical of Med yachts. As an evolution of – and at two meters longer than – the 37XP, the 40MXP’s aft deck has been enlarged both as a result of the extra length and also by moving the aft sliding doors to the saloon forward by three meters. The result is an area with space for a large alfresco dining area, a bar, and a lounge area surrounding another new feature – an aft pool complete with glass transom. This area extends down to a huge hydraulic swim platform that stretches across the yacht’s 8-meter beam. “The 40MXP is an evolution of the 37XP and the new model allows easy access to the water from the main deck,” explains Ömer Malaz, Chairman of Numarine. “The 37XP’s beach club and garage have been replaced with a pool and a full-beam hydraulic swim platform – it’s very on-trend at the moment to maximize exterior elements on sub-45 meter yachts, but what the 40MXP does so well is add fantastic outdoor living features to the design while retaining the core explorer principles of our XP line. I am very happy since both owners who signed contracts to build the 40MXP are repeat clients, which means we are doing everything the right way.”While the ‘M’ part of the 40MXP offers the glamor of beach life, the ‘XP’ part is as alive as ever – the model can achieve an impressive 6,000-nautical-mile range at 8 knots thanks to the optimized hull form developed by long-standing Numarine naval architecture partner Umberto Tagliavini. Standard propulsion comes from a pair of MAN 800hp engines, although there is the option to upgrade to a Tier III-compliant twin MAN 900hp installation –the first two yachts sold will both have the 900hp MAN upgrades.The yacht can carry a 9-meter tender and three full-size jet skis and plenty of room for the water sports toys. “The 40MXP marks another exciting point on the chart in our own journey of exploration into innovative superyacht designs that offer unconstrained cruising pleasure,” says Omer Malaz.The delivery of two 40MXP is expected in 2025.Numarine, a European high-performance motor-yacht shipyard headquartered in Istanbul, offers a range of yachts from 19 to 45 meters.Credits: Numarine
