In November 2019, Italian superyacht manufacturer Cantiere delle Marche has announced the recent sale of a 35-meter explorer superyacht. The Second 35 Meter Explorer Superyacht MG115 was sold to an Asian owner on December 24th.The project has a naval architecture, which was developed on its own in collaboration with long-time partner Cantiere delle Marche Hydro Tec, and has the exterior design of the famous Florentine designer Francesco Pashkovsky. All models in the MG line have similar styles that are characterized by bold masculine lines that have become associated with vessels that fall under the designation "explorer."Designed to travel to the most remote and secluded areas of the globe, the MG 115 is an elegant yet robust, reliable, environmentally friendly long range research vessel.Despite the fact that the MG115 is relatively compact, it is able to accommodate the spaces and luxurious amenities that can be expected from a large yacht. “We don’t produce ‘white yachts’ that look like explores just to follow a trend,” says Buonpensiere. “Throughout the years, we have showed the market that we are able to build true explorers that have both elegance and style of a white yacht. The solutions we have fielded to make the MG line meet all these requirements are once again driving CdM’s explorer yachts forward.”The yacht, located on four decks, will have a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure with spacious recreation areas, recreation and dining areas.The vessel will accommodate up to 10 guests, which will be served by six crew members. Accommodation on board a ship with full displacement in five suits; two VIPs and two twins on the lower deck and a master suite in front of the main deck. In accordance with modern trends, special emphasis was placed on large windows, natural light, outdoor areas and proximity to the ocean. However, only limited parts are available at this stage.Two 533 kW engines each provide a maximum speed of 13.5 knots and a flight range of more than 5000 nautical miles.

British shipyard Sunseeker has revealed details of its new 29.8-meter model, the Sunseeker 100. With its first delivery scheduled for Q4 2021, the GRP yacht will have an interior volume of 125 GT.Built around an idea of free transitions from the indoor to the outdoor, its most interesting design set up seems to be the flow from the flybridge to the foredeck in one straight walking line, effectively connecting the full length of the 29.8-meter yacht.Another key aspect of the yacht is its owner cabin, located forward of the main deck. Facing forward, it has lots of natural light through a glass wall that opens up onto the foredeck, from which guests can walk straight to the flybridge.Accommodating up to 10 guests in 4 guest cabins on the lower deck and 1 owner's suite, the interior of the Sunseeker 100 matches its connection to the outdoors through tall windows on every level. According to Andrea Frabetti, Sunseeker's CEO, its newest creation is 'a remarkable example of bespoke refinement.'Headquartered in the UK, Sunseeker is one of the largest producer of mid-sized yachts. The yard was purchased by Chinese conglomerate Wanda Group in 2013 for near 300 million pounds from Irish private equity firm, FL Partners.
