FLOAT, a brand new startup that launched earlier today, aims to revolutionise the world of yachting by allowing its users to book luxury yacht charters by the seat with prices starting as low as €99 per person.Operating its own fleet, FLOAT runs its yachts on several pre-determined routes as shuttles, each cruise including time to lounge and swim from the yacht, lunch at some of the world's most prestigious beach restaurants and champagne on board.More than transportation, FLOAT wants to bring its users a true yachting experience at a price over 20 times lower than renting out a boat for a day charter. Driven by tech and data, FLOAT achieves these lower costs by letting users purchase individual tickets through its app or website as opposed to chartering the whole boat.Founded by Gualtiero Giori, CEO of 21st Luxury and former owner of Camper & Nicholsons, and Dimitri Semenikhin, CEO of Yacht Harbour, FLOAT will start the season by operating a series of routes around Monaco and St Tropez ahead of a planned expansion to Miami and the Bahamas this winter.The startup's first St Tropez - Pampelonne Beach route will be serviced by FLOAT Open class yachts, such as the $1 million Maori 50, whereas cruise out of Monaco will take place on FLOAT Fly class yachts, enhanced with a flybridge. FLOAT's star St Tropez - Pampelonne route is at the moment set at €499/person however the startup's management intends to introduce options as low €99/person as soon as next month.After working with billionaires and celebrities, amongst others, for their superyacht needs as owner of Camper & Nicholsons, I wanted everyone to be able to enjoy yachting, which meant making it more accessible and simpler to enjoy, hence the creation of FLOAT.Gualtiero Giori, Co-Founder, FLOATFLOAT brings a level of efficiency and innovation to yachting that the sector was previously lacking. In addition to exposing a whole new demographic to yachts, FLOAT's tech platform drastically reduces the complexity of chartering a yacht with its instant booking function and removes price as a barrier of entry.Dimitri Semenikhin, Co-Founder, FLOATJean-Jacques Boude, a former executive at Camper & Nicholsons International, was appointed by the shareholders of FLOAT to run its operations as CEO. With its first shuttles starting navigation as soon as this weekend, FLOAT plans to actively expand its number of routes and fleet over the next quarters. The startup is also looking to soon introduce, amongst other planned functionalities, a membership program where members would gain unlimited access to its for a yearly fee.FLOAT is now available on the App Store.

Project Thunder launched from the floating dock 24 months after her keel was laid in 2015.

In March the German shipyard has delivered Amadea (Project Mistral), which has been spotted in Norway a week after. Photos by @drduu
