Johnson 112 flagship goes down the slipway
The Taiwanese-based shipyard has launched its largest model to date, 34-meter Johnson 112, at its premises in Kaohsiung. The motor-yacht boasting Dixon Yacht Design profile will be handed over to her American owner in January 2018, once she completes her sea trials. The all-GRP superyacht conceived by Johnson in-house naval architects features a raised pilothouse position on the upper deck for convenient maneuvering. With a beam of 7.2 meters and a draft of 1.86, she can accommodate 12 guests in her 6 cabins, which include a main deck master suite and a VIP stateroom. As for the crew, they have two cabins at their disposal, allowing for four members of staff. Johnson 112 has abundant tender space back aft and an enclosed cockpit forward of the swimming platform equipped for sport-fishing. Powered by twin 1.925 Caterpillar diesel engines, the boat is expected to reach a top speed of 23 knots. Meanwhile, her ABT zero-speed stabilizers will provide comfort at anchor. The Taiwanese yard has recently committed to building an even bigger yacht, Johnson 115, measuring 35 meters in length.
Superyacht Ciao returns to Moonen for big winter refit
Launched by Moonen in 2007, the 29-meter fast displacement yacht Ciao, previously known as Nilo, has sailed in December from the Mediterranean to Holland for her first extensive refit that will include a whole range of technical and aesthetic upgrades. On the technical side, the main goal is to shift from hydraulic to electrical stabilization ensured by CMC zero-speed stabilizers. Maintenance and service on the propulsion drive, including a controllable pitch propeller system, will be carried out as well. Finally, the work on the underwater body will consist of replacing the anodes and protecting the bottom with two fresh coats of antifouling. Speaking about the advantages of performing the refit at the home yard, Moonen service manager Eckly Hendriks points out: “Moonen has a strong image of craftsmanship and the owner is really keen on detail and perfection. As well as helping retain resale value, we also know all the ins and outs of the vessel. And the fact that Moonen has the option to temporarily import the vessel into the Netherlands was also beneficial to the owner.” The project will require different types of craftsmanship from carpenters to mechanical engineers. The Dutch yard’s strong ties with its subcontractors, such as CMC based in Italy or Servogear from Norway, is also seen as an asset. Ciao will undergo the refit in the course of eight weeks, after which the luxury boat will stay in Moonen’s acclimatized hall until the new season begins. Her captain will also remain close to his charge with all the facilities at hand to do his job. Launched in 2007 as part of Moonen Alu 94 series and sold to her current owner in 2015, Ciao features exterior design by Rene Van Der Velden and Art-Line interior styling. Accommodation for up to eight guests is split across four en-suite cabins, arranged as two twin rooms, a VIP suite and a master cabin, while the crew quarters is for a two people. Power comes from a pair of 1,825 hp Caterpillar C32 ACERT diesel engines for a top speed of 26 knots and an average speed of 19 knots. Total fuel capacity of 18.900 liters allows for a cruising range of 2.500 nautical miles at an economical speed of 11 knots.
Dune, hybrid 60-meter supertender in gold
Spanish designer Eugeni Quitllet has revealed a 60-meter luxury tender that is a hybrid between a sail boat and a motor power boat, taking the best of both in efficiency. $70 million is its estimated production cost, implying a generous use of precious materials. Dune owes its name to the natural flowing shape of the teak deck, hiding the sculptural navigation panels. The gold finish is used throughout the 6 staterooms to match with the signature rose golden touches on the vessel’s silver metallic exterior. The interior design comes complete with luxury Mirage accessories.
New Feadship yard taking shape in the heart of Amsterdam
In the presence of invited guests, the first concrete was poured into the giant drydocks. Due for completion at the end of 2016, the Dutch builder’s fourth yard is under construction in a prime water-side location in Amsterdam. This facility is set to expand Feadship range with the yachts of up to 160 meters in length. “The average length of the superyachts we are building continues to grow,” explains Feadship director and the CEO of Royal Van Lent shipyard, Jan-Bart Verkuyl. “The majority of projects currently underway are above 80 metres and there is a clear trend to go ever larger". A cooperative venture between two shipyards, Royal Van Lent and Koninklijke De Vries Scheepsbouw, Feadship currently operates three facilities: in Aalsmeer, Kaag Island and Makkum that was opened in 2005. Amsterdam yard is supposed to solve the size limitations on the production imposed by the original Aalsmeer and Kaag yards. When completed, it will be run by Royal Van Lent along with Kaag facility that should continue its operations at full capacity. The two premises will share the same management team, with some 450 skilled employees moving between the yards when required. Apart from new superyachts, measuring up to 160 meters, the new yard will specialize in refits of the existing Feadships. This project will eventually see the banks of the IJ waterway adorned with a 35-metre-high hall and ten three-story workshops. The fact that Feadship will be occupying a five-hectare site with an option for a further 3.8 hectares supports the expectations of “a bright future for this glamorous industry in Amsterdam”, indicates Port of Amsterdam CEO, Koen Overtoom, encouraging other Dutch shipbuilders to follow this example. Feadship is among the largest employers within the global superyacht industry, with over 2000 specialists covering every discipline involved in the design, engineering, naval architecture and construction of luxury motor-yachts. This new initiative means further employment of around 150 specialized craftsmen, all of whom will benefit from the training programs in place, which are designed to pass down skills from generation to generation. “This showcases our determination to preserve both traditional crafts and the very latest technological skill sets. Together with the other leading yachtbuilders in the Netherlands, Feadship forms a vital part of the Dutch superyacht cluster, which includes a wide range of leading supply companies and research institutes. The role that Feadship and the Dutch superyacht industry play in supporting innovation within the wider commercial shipping industry cannot be overestimated either. With this new facility we once again confirm our commitment to the future of the Dutch economy,” director Verkuyl concludes.
Heesen 56-meter Project Neptune in details and photos
Heesen has released the details of the fully-custom project YN 18556, now that the steel hull and superstructure were joined together at the shipyard’s facility in Oss. The yacht that is rapidly taking shape after the laying the keel in January, was christened Neptune. British studio H2 worked on the Heesen pre-engineered FDHF platform to create a contemporary profile that retains the Dutch yard’s family look. The subtle paint scheme has a silver nuance on the transom, wing station and mast. On the functional side, the exterior design includes tenders conveniently stored on the forward deck under hatch covers on the foredeck. The lower beach club houses water toys. A 3.5-meter long fixed platform provides easy access to the water. Warm teak, blue backlit panels and bamboo finishing of the outdoor lounge areas blend with the ocean beyond. The owner appointed Reymond Langton to create a bright and elegant interior, making the most of the boat’s 770 GT. His 85-square-meter apartment is set forward on the main deck, comprising a private gym with steam room, office, full-beam bedroom and bathroom. The interior architecture throughout the main deck and upper deck saloons is in sycamore combined with understated geometric motifs. The delicate fabrics and soft furnishings interplay with artworks in glass, gypsum, resin and bronze. Accommodation for eight guests is split across four suites on the lower deck, all with king-size beds and private bathrooms. The fifth cabin is located on the bridge deck. Both owners and guests will be discreetly serviced by the 13 crew thanks to separate crew corridors and stairs. Project Neptune complies with Lloyds 100A1 SSC Yacht LMC, Large Commercial Yacht LY3 and IMO Tier III exhaust emission regulations. Powered by twin MTU 8V 4000 M63 engines, the boat will reach a maximum speed of 15.5 knots with a cruising range at 13 knots of 4.300 nautical miles.Neptune is due for delivery in 2019.
