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 use renewable energy to produce hydrogen from seawater with zero CO2 emissions and zero fine particles.The vessel will be used for four years of traveling 20,000 nautical miles to test and promote renewable energy technologies.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.Major changes have affected solar panels which have been expanded to include more efficient photovoltaic cells. Also, was added second Toyota fuel cell with a maximum power of 114 kW, Oceanwings sail system. At the end propellers were replaced with Brunton automatic propellers.

The 85.3-meter deep-sea research and expedition vessel OceanXplorer (Alucia 2) was launched after a two-year recovery 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.

Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design unveiled the new BlackCat Superyachts line of sailing catamarans.Mitch Booth says that the new model will have the same beautiful lines as the previous BlackCat 50 model and differ in a spectacular interior design from the M2 Atelier.The builder of the BlackCat 30 was McConaghy Boats. McConaghy is widely recognized as an expert in the design of mid-size carbon fiber multihulls. McConaghy is the latest addition to an industry-leading alliance of industry-leading suppliers combining BlackCat Superyachts with other well-known names, including North Sails and Southern Spars, reinforcing the benchmark already established by BlackCat Superyachts in the large cruise catamaran market.The BlackCat series of superyachts is able to sail efficiently and quickly thanks to the lightweight carbon fiber construction of the yacht, minimizing emissions and, in some cases, completely eliminating them.The BlackCat 30 offers accommodation for up to eight guests in six cabins, as well as accommodations for four crew members. The yacht has a very open and spacious atmosphere, the saloon of the main deck is on the same level and large enough to serve large dinners and entertainment.The catamaran is able to reach speeds of up to 20 knots and reach a maximum speed of over 30 knots, with a low hill angle and a stable platform.

Jarkko Jämsén - marine architector and designer.He leads three design studios based in Helsinki (Aivan - design and branding, Navia Design - shipping tourism and design) and Monaco (Jamsen - design of superyachts). His team created 50 different models, and about 1,000 to 1,500 boats are built each year.One of his familiar projects was Syzygy 818.Jämsén was involved in the concept, interior layout and exterior design of the ship, and also in the development and modeling of hull lines.His strong desire to apply the principles of building wooden boats was realized while working together with Feadship’s De Voogt Naval Architects and the Dutch studio Sinot Yacht Design that led the interior design.The superstructure was led by KK Superyachts directly at the Feadship Royal Van Lent Kaag in the Netherlands.The yacht was first launched at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2019.Jämsén describes the design as straightforward and discreet. It was inspired by the Japanese design of the Sinot Yacht Design.The highest priority for Jämsén in designing Syzygy 818 was to make the yacht comfortable for the owner, and as a result added features that had never been included in the Feadship, such as handrails with push buttons on the balcony and the front door owner in the VIP cabin on the upper deck.The author tried to make the design calm and elegant. As for details, they were supposed not to be evident. Only when all these features were achieved, Jämsén considered his project successful.
