Benetti Has Launched the 48m Hawa
On April 29th, Benetti launched from Livorno yacht Hawa. A 48-meter yacht tailor-made for her owner, touches water for the first time.The yacht, built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, was designed in collaboration with the famous English studio RWD, who penned the exterior and interior design. The owner, a loyal Benetti customer, passionate about boating and with a great deal of experience behind him, declared himself very satisfied with the result obtained and recognized the shipyard for its excellent know-how and the manufacturing capacity in completing the project with his input in careful consideration.Hawa stands out for the elegant "desert sand" hull color, chosen by the owner, and the original layout which prioritizes continuous contact with the environment. The use of refined furnishing elements and materials is striking, in particular the matte painted eucalyptus with dark walnut details and inlays of various leathers and marbles.She can accommodate ten people in five cabins and nine crew members. The main deck enjoys incredible brightness, thanks to a lounge with five openings to the outside that allow continuous views of the sea. On the same deck, toward the bow, instead of the traditional galley, the owner asked to have a pantry and a large VIP cabin with shower with sauna that precedes the large master cabin, full beam and with drop down side windows. Here the space was designed with a private study for the owner, bed, two wardrobes on the port side and a lounge area with bathroom to the starboard.The lower deck houses three double cabins for guests, as well as the galley, equipped with a dumbwaiter that allows the crew to serve all decks, including the sun deck. The beach area has two side openings that deploy into platforms, overlooking the sea and adding to the considerable beach area. The aft part of the upper deck is designed for convivial moments in the open air, with areas for relaxation, conversation and sunbathing. Inside the bright sky lounge with two large opening side windows, there is a pantry, a complete gym, also with opening side windows, and the wheelhouse with full-height windows covering 180°.The hull, designed by the P.L.A.N.A. studio in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development department, ensures high performance and excellent seaworthiness for safe and comfortable navigation. The engine room houses a pair of MTUs of 1,268 kW each, which guarantee the yacht a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at the 10 knot cruising speed.This superyacht is set to be delivered in the summer of 2021. Founded in 1873, Benetti is the oldest Italian shipyard specializing in luxury yachts. Benetti designs, builds and sells composite vessels from 29 to 44m and steel and aluminium boats from 37 to over 100m. The fleet consists of five categories: Class, Oasis, B.Yond, B.Now and Custom to meet all the needs of the market. Benetti belongs to the Azimut|Benetti Group, the largest privately owned luxury yachting group in the world.Credits: Benetti
Alia Yachts Has Launched the New Support Ship
The Turkish yard has launched a 36m custom support vessel. PHI Phantom, part of the PHI Project, is a great example of the yard’s metalworking skills, and features striking in-house interior design. Cor D Rover was responsible for her exterior styling, and naval architecture was by Van Oossanen. Destined to support the custom superyacht PHI by Royal Huisman, PHI Phantom reflects many elements of the larger yacht’s design.The hull was to have no fairing to finish it, so the plates had to be very accurately bent in three dimensions, then welded without creating the slightest distortion. It is flawlessly painted in the exact same matt blue-grey as the mothership. She also shares the horizontal grille work at the bow and echoes the swooping shearline of the larger vessel.PHI Phantom is built to cross oceans carrying the tenders and toys that the mothership has no garage to stow. The key here is a 9m HS Marine crane capable of lifting 5.5 tonnes out of the water and onto the vast 150 square-metre aft deck. It has more than enough power to handle the 14m gentleman’s tender currently taking shape at Spirit Yachts, as well as the Axopar 37 Suntop. A hydraulically operated lazarette under the deck stores further toys in a protected environment.However, the boat is also a technical marvel in other respects. Every system is over-specced, so as to be as reliable as possible. From pumps and piping to hydraulics and electrics, everything is designed to be as bombproof as possible. With a patented Fast Displacement Hull Form by Van Oossanen and twin Cat C-32 engines, PHI Phantom has a range of 4,200 nautical miles at 12 knots cruising speed. Flat out, she’ll do 21 knots to match the slim, easily driven hull of the mothership.The interior is designed to be as functional as possible, yet finished to superyacht crew standards. There are berths for up to six crew, but the boat is classified for handling by just three. This means that there is extra space on board, and one of the cabins has been designated as a guest cabin, with a little more volume and a desk. “When PHI Phantom does begin her adventures, she will represent one of the most robust and stylish support vessels ever built,” says Çelik. “Alia Yachts is incredibly proud to have brought this project to life, which showcases our incredibly high standards of craftsmanship and finish.”PHI Phantom is undergoing its final sea-trials now and will be delivered to the owner in June.Alia Yachts was founded in 2008 by Gokhan Çelik and Omer Koray. Located in the port of Antalya on the beautiful Turkish Riviera, Alia Yachts shipyard currently occupies approximately 8,000 m2, including three construction halls with their suites of specialist workshops and a dedicated interiors facility. With an additional 16,000 square meters under development for 2019, Alia Yachts will rank among the top facilities in the region.Credits: Alia Yachts
Lürssen Has Launched the 55m Project 13800
Lürssen has announced the successful launching of project 13800. The 55m was built for an experienced owner, who had a clear idea for his future vessel. Designed by Bannenberg & Rowell, the fearless use of colours and textures as well as museum quality interior furniture pieces underline the approach of tremendous attention to detail – not only in the interior spaces but also in the technical areas. Dickie Bannenberg confirms: ”We are excited to see 13800 emerge from her shed. The initial concept was influenced by our studies based on the classic yacht Carinthia VI, designed by Bannenberg Snr, and built by Lürssen in 1973.”Lürssen is known for manufacturing the largest yachts in the world but is also actively targeting projects in the 55 to 75 meter range. Project 13800 is a first step in reestablishing the brand as a serious proposition for yachts in that size bracket as well. “We are very grateful for the client’s trust in us to build his dream of a bespoke 55m yacht. The OR-team has fantastic experience with that size of yacht and it has been a very fruitful collaboration so far,” says Peter Lürssen, managing partner. Her delivery is planned for summer 2021. Lürssen is a German shipyard with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack and shipbuilding facilities in Lemwerder, Berne and Bremen-Aumund. Founded in 1875, Lürssen is one of the world's leading builders of custom luxury superyachts and has launched many of the largest yachts in the global fleet, including Octopus, Rising Sun, and Azzam.Credits: Lürssen/KlausJordan
