Lurssen float out new 130m+ Project Shu
Lurssen, the Germany-based superyacht builder, world famous for delivering some of the largest and most iconic yachts in recent years, has floated out a new 130-meter+ superyacht according to footage that emerged on social media.One of Lurssen's most secretive projects, out of the large number that they currently have under construction, little is known about the yacht, which some have referred to under the project name SHU, which, however can differ from the name used internally at Lurssen, as previous projects have shown.First seen in November 2016 in a less completed state, the yacht is believed to be at least 130 meters in length. Her delivery should take place in 2018. Other projects in build at the shipyard include the 130m Thunder, 139m+ Redwood, 112m Palo Alto/TIS and others.Photos by DrDuu
Largest sportfish yacht in the world spotted on sea trials
Yachting Developments have released photos of their 39.5-meter sportfisher YD1015 performing sea trials off the coast of New Zealand. Launched on November 23, the world's largest all-carbon sportfish yacht belongs to an international sports fisherman, who opted for Yachting Developments because of their expertise in yachts with carbon hull and superstructure, which are, in fact, considered to be the lightest and fastest of their kind. Whilst Michael Peters Yacht Design was in charge of the exterior of the yacht, her “contemporary classic” interior was created by Naylor Booth Associate in collaboration with the owner himself. The layout sleeps 10 guests in four lower deck staterooms, including the owner’s master suite, and six members of the crew. The scale of the 267GT boat allowed for commercial-grade of 3.100hp MTU diesel engines, drawing on a fuel reserve of 40.000 liters, and advanced VEEM gyro stabilizers. Once completed, the sea trials will show, what speed the boat is actually capable of.
5 reasons to invest in Fast Support Vessel 6711
Delivered in 2014 by Damen, parent company of Amels, and Monaco-based Imperial Yachts acting as owner's representative and build-supervisor throughout the process, Fast Support Vessel 6711 is part of the Dutch shipyard's Sea Axe series, dedicated to building support vessels for superyachts. Now looking for a new owner through Imperial, here are some of the main reasons why she's worth investing in.Any superyacht, no matter how large it is, ultimately faces constraints as to what it can carry onboard due to a finite amount of space. To adapt to this, compromises are often made with regards to the tenders used and the toys found onboard. Having the 6711 as a Fast Support Vessel however, lets its owner no longer compromise and get the best possible tenders and toys thanks to the 6711's 275 square meters of open deck space.Not only can the 6711 expand the mothership's arsenal of tenders, it can also welcome a set of toys that the vast majority of superyachts could never accommodate. One example of such a toy is, for example, a 3-person Triton submarine that the 67-meter support vessel is able to gracefully carry and quickly launch when needed.Helicopter operations are often an afterthought for superyachts, this is however not the case with this Sea Axe. Amongst the 6711's key features is commercial-grade helipad (D-value: 14m and 5,000kg) located aft of its upper deck, which can accommodate the largest helicopters on the market. A refueling station is also built into the yacht with a capacity to carry up to 5,000l of Jet A-1 fuel.Sea Axe support vessels are by nature impressive, the 6711 takes this to another level. One of the key, custom features on this 67-meter yacht is her dedicated dive center, with a built-in decompression chamber, an amenity that was built on purpose for the 6711, making it a unique support vessel on the market.From a technical standpoint, the 6711 is powered by 4 incredibly powerful MTU 16V 4000 engines, which give the yacht a maximum speed of 19 knots and allow her to cruise for up to 8,720 nautical miles at 15 knots, consuming just 660 liters of fuel per hour. This makes her an ideal option to send ahead of the mothership and explore bays and secluded areas ahead of the mothership's arrival.Project managed and commissioned by Imperial Yachts, the 67.15-meter support yacht is now looking for a new owner with her asking price available upon request.Sponsored by Imperial YachtsC.

Dune, hybrid 60-meter supertender in gold
Spanish designer Eugeni Quitllet has revealed a 60-meter luxury tender that is a hybrid between a sail boat and a motor power boat, taking the best of both in efficiency. $70 million is its estimated production cost, implying a generous use of precious materials. Dune owes its name to the natural flowing shape of the teak deck, hiding the sculptural navigation panels. The gold finish is used throughout the 6 staterooms to match with the signature rose golden touches on the vessel’s silver metallic exterior. The interior design comes complete with luxury Mirage accessories.
Spanish designer introduces 114m concept Ines
Alvaro Aparicio de Leon has opened up about his new mega-yacht concept, the 114-meter Ines, with surprising proportions for a sleeker silhouette and multipurpose interior spaces. “Most of the yachts of similar size that I’ve seen seemed too large, more like transatlantic cruisers. I decided to find out if I could make a sleeker one,” the Mallorca-based designer explains the idea behind the key creative solution for Ines, which is her unusual length to volume ratio achieved by reducing the beam to 15 meters. For major seaworthiness, the full-displacement yacht features a vertical bow, thus, optimizing the usage of inner space. Among the boat’s characteristic elements is her series of classic round portholes, standing for the “timelessness” of the concept.“Now that everybody’s creating yachts as if they were Lamborghinis, I want to keep making something modern, but timeless,” Alvaro points out. The interior layout provides accommodation for up to 20 guests and 42 members of crew. However, a significant part of cabins can be converted into social spaces upon customer’s request, without compromising on comfort onboard. Owner’s quarters on the upper deck comprise a master suite, office, separate bathrooms and a dressing room. This deck can be shared with two spacious VIP staterooms or, otherwise, host a lounge, cinema and library. Further VIP-class guest accommodation is split between the main and the bridge decks. Being the centerpiece of the boat’s exterior, the superyacht beach club boasts a touch-and-go helipad and an indoor-outdoor swimming pool that as well acts as part of the tender launch system. This zone is lit from above with daylight filtering through the glass bottom pool on the main deck. The garage on the lower deck has enough room for two limo tenders of 10.8 and 8 meters, four jet-skis and a submarine U-Boat Worx Super Yacht Sub 3. In addition, a full-fledged helipad is located on the upper deck of Ines.Finalist of the 2012 ShowBoats Design Awards for a 50-meter expedition vessel MaBulle turned into a private yacht, Alvaro Aparicio de Leon is especially keen on projects above 50 meters, such as his 74-meter V+A and the 85-meter concept T.
