Italian designer Tommaso Spadolini introduced the design of Montecristo 30 and Montecristo 43.Motor cruisers are distinguished by strict and classic lines and have similarities with other designer models - Rossinavi Aslec 4 and CCN Freedom.Important features include air intake grilles, dark glazed stripes, solar panels and a vertical nose.According to Spadolini, "the hallmark of the series should be a wide main deck to maximize the internal space. Another request is that they want to make full use of foredeck, which has become the second signature feature."Accommodation on board includes five guest cabins, three VIPs and two single cabins on the lower deck. Also, on this models located a dining area for the crew and laundry facilities.

Boat creator Guido Krass says, "I have always done my boats to my own personal taste, and not too much on the tastes of others because if that is how you approach it, you will always get it wrong."The Bold style is undoubtedly different from all other SilverYachts yachts in this regard. This can be judged by the fact that the designer for the creation of the Scandinavian style of the yacht was Espen Øino.Bold assembly classification is fairly common for 100 meter vessels, combining the complex requirements of PYC into a thin 85 meter 1600 GT vessel.According to the creator, Bold was a six-year project that lasted two years - but all the efforts spent on it were definitely worth it.The bold was created for unlimited ocean navigation and therefore can maintain a maximum speed of 23 knots in any marine environment.A helicopter can easily be placed on the yacht thanks to the 12 D-value Bold certified helipad. In addition, in the aft deck there are two 10.5-meter RIB Rupert Marine (with open and cockpit versions) and another six-meter rescue RIBR. The interior of the Bold was shaped not only to the taste of its owner but also observing all the safety functions. According to Krass, "There are many rules and regulations that you must follow. For example, since we could not install wood floors, we chose thin and light stone floors in public places that give the interior a very modern and elegant look." Accommodation of guests on a yacht takes place in three VIP suites and four guest cabins on the main deck. The front area of the upper deck is completely the owner's space, together with a study room, its own bathroom and direct access to the deck from the outside. Guido Krass adds that "The owner’s room has very large windows and you can open the side doors to get some fresh air, especially if you are traveling in a climate where it’s not very hot."A special feature is the winter garden located on the upper aft deck. Another hallmark of the vessel was an observation hall occupying a total of 300 square meters. It is distinguished by special glassless frames that cover the entire space of the hall from floor to ceiling. According to Krass, it was important for him to create conditions where "Contact with nature is very close," and the yacht will look like "a modern loft in New York - as if you live in a house." Therefore, the yacht has a huge media space with nine interconnected monitors for any events and activities. Bold's outdoor decks have three fully transformable spaces for various purposes and can turn into a sunbathing track, a place to watch the stars or jacuzzi for 8 people. The upper aft deck below is one open and vast space that serves as the second landing pad for the helicopter and can be turned into a playground for entertainment. From this zone you can make a dining room for 16 people.

Energy Observer is the first vessel that uses renewable energy to produce hydrogen from seawater with zero CO2 emissions and zero fine particles.The vessel will be used for 4-year expedition, which will include three ocean crossings amouting to a total distance of over 20,000 nautical miles.The ship was originally designed as a sailboat by the architect Nigel Ayrens.Later vessel was modified to use electricity from solar and hydrokinetic sources and electrolytically split water. The whole process was set up to power the ship's electric motors and airborne services using hydrogen, which is supplied to the fuel cell.During the winter the floating laboratory has undergone a series of technical upgrades to increase her green energy output. The array of solar panels has been enlarged with more efficient photovoltaic cells; a second fuel cell by Toyota with a maximum capacity of 114kW has been added; the Oceanwings sail system developed by VPLP has been tweaked; and her fixed pitch propellers replaced with automatic variable pitch propellers by Brunton.

The 85.3-meter deep-sea research and expedition vessel OceanXplorer (Alucia 2) was launched after a two-year rebuild in the Netherlands.OceanXplorer was built in 2010 at the Freire shipyard in Spain and spent her life as a deep-sea research vessel operating from Norway under the name Volstad Surveyor.Mark Dalio, co-founder and Creative Director of OceanX, explains that the vessel will be used to explore the least studied parts of the Indian Ocean.The ship is equipped with a 40-ton A-frame and is designed specifically for the deployment of two submarines that can dive to a depth of over 3,000 feet for eight hours. The vessel is also ideal for long-range reconnaissance tasks and aerial photography.OceanXplorer is a project that brings together the best scientists, researchers, shipbuilders and media representatives together with the BBC to research underwater discoveries that will be analyzed in modern laboratories for dry and wet conditions on board, while the OceanXplorer media studio will be able to document and broadcast research in ultra-high resolution around the world.
