New Zeelander 5 Project Revealed
The new 14.6m Zeelander 5 was revealed at the Cannes Yachting Festival. Like her big sister the Z72, the Zeelander 5 is even more voluptuous than her predecessors. Zeelander’s DNA is all there, but with curvier lines and a sportier S-shaped shearline. In-house styling and the combined experience of the entire Zeelander team make the new Zeelander 5 a work of art. “At Zeelander, we want to inspire people to be extraordinary,” said founder Sietse Koopmans. “The Zeelander 5 is an embodiment of that philosophy. A sophisticated yacht that stands out and can be personalised to its owner’s taste. The exterior is a continuation of the lines of the successful Z72 and the interior design is truly exceptional for a yacht of this size.”The Zeelander 5 has improved functionality – side-boarding doors and a passarelle allow easy entry, a full walkaround cockpit gives access to the swim platform. And most importantly, the Zeelander 5 can be opened up for the summer months with a sunroof and retractable sliding window aft, or sealed off for cool winter cruises. Main deck in classical styleThe new boat is broader in the beam, which offers many benefits. There is greater volume below, naturally, but also better hydrodynamics and cruising characteristics. Running at full throttle, the boat makes an easy 45 knots, but all you’ll hear is the sound of the wake astern. Riding at anchor, the generator and aircon produce just 46dB – literally whisper quiet.Owners suite in contemporary styleFlick the backrests over to create twin pilot seats for effortless control of the yacht’s systems. Performance options include twin or triple Volvo Penta IPS 500 or 650 pods, for a maximum of 1,440hp. It makes for a blistering ride, certainly, but Volvo’s Assisted Docking technology also makes light of close-quarters manoeuvring.Main deck in modern style The standard layout offers a huge master cabin aft with a walk-around bed and a dedicated dressing area. Smart features include a TV mounted at an angle over the bed, broad windows for views of the anchorage from your pillow and a beautiful leather-clad dressing table. The sophisticated ambient lighting concept runs to an illuminated sill under each door.Main deck in nautical style Guests or family will enjoy a luxurious V-shaped twin forward, with a TV and a hatch overhead. The separate shower and toilet also offer an exceptional standard of finish. The owner can choose from the four carefully curated moodboards that offer a range of luxurious styles and finishes to perfectly match an owner’s personality. The first Zeelander 5 is expected to hit the water in mid-2022.Zeelander Yachts was founded in 2002 in the Netherlands by Sietse Koopmans. The first model was unveiled to the public in 2008. The launch model Z44 received positive reviews at the Monaco Yacht Show and drew enormous crowds, despite being at an event dominated by much larger yachts. Within three years, the Z44 had been successfully introduced to the US as well as Europe, and it was an obvious direction to add a larger model to the fleet. The first Z55 was delivered in November 2015, and the flagship Z72 was launched in March 2019.Credits: Zeelander Yachts

 Damen Yachting Unveiled New SeaXplorer 60
The SeaXplorer team at Damen Yachting has unveiled the first SeaXplorer 60. The vessel, featuring hybrid propulsion, is now under construction for delivery in 2024. The new SeaXplorer 60 is now fully engineered and steel cutting will take place at Damen Yachting’s building facility. By starting the SeaXplorer build up front, Damen Yachting is following its successful Amels Limited Editions approach by offering reliable, customisable luxury explorers with the shortest delivery times on the market. “Since introducing our SeaXplorer concept in 2015, Damen Yachting has become well-established as the luxury explorer leader. But we expect the future will see even more Owners demanding the autonomy, safety and flexibility that the SeaXplorer offers. That’s why we decided to build the SeaXplorer 60 on spec for fast delivery in 2024. She is the only luxury explorer yacht available in her class and an amazing opportunity,” says Rose Damen, Managing Director. The new SeaXplorer design is a unique crossover innovation of Amels pedigree with Damen shipbuilding knowhow. At 1,160 Gross Tonnage, the explorer yacht features large volume luxury interiors and lots of expedition capability, including wide customisation possibilities for tropical, polar and all sorts of adventures in between. The helideck, when not in use for helicopter operations, is ideal as a 150 sq. m party deck to entertain up to 100 guests or alternatively as a basketball half-court. Below the helideck, the SeaXplorer 60 has a flexible configuration for a big range of tenders up to 10.5 min length, a submarine, snowmobiles, jet skis or sailboats. The covered outdoor space, in total 195 sq. m, offers Owners the versatility to create a luxury cabana lounge and bar, dive deck, fitness and wellness zone or ski lodge – depending on the Owner’s own requirements and vision. The SeaXplorer 60 recognisably masculine lines made by Damen Yachting’s SeaXplorer exterior design partner Azure Yacht Design. Together with its operational design partner, EYOS Expeditions, Damen Yachting has engineered the SeaXplorer with hard-won expedition experience from the field. The yacht has hybrid power and propulsion with battery banks, a fully certified helideck, Ice Class and IMO Polar Code compliant engineering. Her stores and tanks allow for up to 30 days of autonomous and safe operations in isolation without port call. A custom concept was created by designer Jonny Horsfield and his London-based team at H2 Design. The yacht applies a crisp design language with a rich, bold palette and a use of warm wood. Materials and curves create a soothing atmosphere and retain that connectivity to the ocean that is prominent throughout the yacht’s design.The SeaXplorer 60 is the latest new build from the SeaXplorer range of luxury expedition yachts. The first SeaXplorer, 62m Anawa, was followed by 77m La Datcha in 2020 and by the custom 58m SeaXplorer in build for delivery to her owner in 2022.Damen Yachting, a division of the Damen Shipyards Group, was created in 2019. It combines the pedigree and heritage of Amels yachts with a growing portfolio of SeaXplorer yachts and Yacht Support vessels.Credits: Damen Yachting
161m Sailing Concept Norway Revealed by Kurt Strand Design
Florida based Norwegian designer Kurt Strand has revealed his latest superyacht concept, the 161 meter sailing superyacht Norway inspired by the beauty of the Viking ships and their powerful square sails. Norway is the Strand’s vision of what a modern Viking ship would look like today with its space age technology and patented Falcon rig masts made from carbon fiber. Three 96m tall masts are electro-hydraulic turn-able. Push button sail handling means sailing can be managed by significantly less crew than conventionally rigged yachts. All sails can be deployed or furled away in six minutes. The unique sail handling system results in much more precise maneuvering under sail enabling the sails to be used on more occasions and for much longer periods, including in close quarters of harbors and sailing on and off moorings. Having multiple sails means that they can be progressively furled into the mast in a controlled manner and without the need for high loaded sheets or captive winches. Rotating rigs mean that the vessel does not need to be head to wind to hoist or reef the sails. The masts can also rotate to depower the rig and feather the sails. The sail load in each sail is low.The middle mast is equipped with a sky elevator that will bring the owner's couple to 340 feet above the water level. All of the total 6000 sq. m sails are covered by a flexible solar cell foil. Power will be stored in the battery bank and can be used directly for the onboard Hydrogen production as well. In case of no wind or sunshine the yacht can be run on hydrogen fuel power cells. The yacht is engineered with two, side by side retractable keels with stabilizers. The keels can be lifted individually.She will accommodate up to 24 guests in 12 luxury suites and 40 crew members. She will have a helipad at the fore deck with elevator to the hangar below deck, and a large swimming pool at the aft deck.Beach club with a huge selection of tender boats, off-road vehicles, jet skis and water toys. One of the tenders is the 40 feet electric powered Beach Cruiser, an amphibious and submersible limousine tender. Norway also features a fitness center, spa, supercar garage, cinema and a hospital.
