The recently established Dutch builder Sichterman Yachts launched its first yacht, the 18-metre Inveni, in May 2019. The yard has just introduced another concept out of their range, the 15-metre Libertas.
Equal to other Sichterman yachts, the Libertas combines technological innovations with timeless design. The first Libertas has already been sold, and will be delivered to her owner in April 2020.
This versatile vessel combines everything needed for a delightful day out on the water, to explore long stretches of coast at a considerably high speed. It is also a perfect and trustworthy limousine tender that takes its owners to the harbour when they have anchored their superyacht off the coast and have the desire to set foot on land.
In 2018, Van Oossanen Naval Architects started to develop a new series of fast planing yachts within the Sichterman fleet in two versions. They represent a limousine version, allowing guests to sit on board and a day boat, with a saloon inside the hull.
The Libertas has a divergent hull shape from other Sichterman vessels that have been released thus far. This hull is specifically designed for high-speed boats, whilst other Sichterman yachts emphasised on cruise comfort.
The Libertas is the first Sichterman that uses the divergent hull shape, also planned to be deployed for other, larger Sichterman yachts in the future.
During construction, special consideration was given to the integration of the Volvo Penta IPS system in order to optimise speed, allow for ease of handling and maximum maneuverability. With the optimised hull lines by Van Oossanen, the Libertas is able to achieve speeds up to 40 knots with 2 times IPS 950 installed, making it one of the most fuel-efficient boats to sail the international waters.
At an average speed, the 15 metre can take her passengers for up to 500 nautical miles, meaning she can sail from Monaco to Ibiza, or from Capri to Sardinia and back, on one full tank. Safety and comfort are ensured by Seakeeper technology, which eliminates boat roll, and gangways that provide a safe way to the front deck.
The design, meanwhile, has been developed by Sichterman partner Cor D. Rover. The details aboard Libertas are to enhance pleasure and comfort, whether it is the joystick steering option that makes the yacht easy and fun to navigate, the on-board air compressor to inflate toys and equipment, or the private space to freshen up below deck before going on land.
The Dutch company Van der Valk has developed a new line of crossovers Pilot.The new Pilot line will be available in a range of lengths, starting with a 23-meter model. The interior design was created by Cor D Rover. The design has a wheelhouse, freeing the front main deck. aft deck allows you to sunbathe and store tenders, jet skis and other toys.Owners can make a number of adaptations to the 23-meter model, including adding a gym at the stern and changing the size of tenders and toys on board. The cabin can also be extended aft to expand the space for communication.Floor-to-ceiling windows for distant ocean views will be installed inside the yacht in the living room, while the main deck also includes a galley and a full set of the main beam forward.The rest of the guest house is located on the lower deck, consisting of two double cabins with bathrooms and a VIP. At the same time, the crew room includes two double cabins and a separate crew area with a bathroom and a cabin, which is served by its own staircase.

After a growth period of 20-30 meters and megayachts, which is even closer to the recession, there was a short period for high demand for medium-sized superyachts.The market for 40-60 meter yachts, the last of which began to grow before the recession began, has also recently begun to gain momentum, as owners are looking for yachts in order to switch to them with growing disposable incomes. Indeed, if several years earlier it was expected that yachts in this range would be traded at 30-40% at the asking price, this gap narrowed to 25-30% in recent quarters.Shipyards, primarily known for their 20-30-meter yachts, are also expanding their ranges to 40-60 meters in order to keep customers who want to grow in size. For example, Sanlorenzo, which for decades focused on 20-30-meter yachts, put at the beginning of this year its newest flagship - the 64-meter Attila.Atilla is a 64.25m luxury yacht, built by Sanlorenzo and delivered in 2019. Her top speed is 18.0kn and her power comes from two 2375.0hp Caterpillar 3516-C diesel engines. She can accommodate up to 12 people with 18 crew members.Yacht was designed by Officina Italiana Design, and the interior design was created by Francesco Paszkowski.

Interior equipment is currently on schedule for a technical launch next month.Attitude offers a number of modifications to the original GA model, including the individual design of the front deck, which has a large solarium and a height-adjustable table to maximize the use of outdoor space.The cabin was also enlarged to accommodate a horseshoe-shaped sofa that can accommodate 10 guests.

The Magnum 60 Furia was launched in 2001, designed by Magnum Marine and Ceo Catherine Theodoli. They say that this is the most successful of the Magnum models.Back in 2001, the 120-kilometer 60 Furia Magnum was named the fastest yacht of this size in the world and after extensive repairs at the Perini Navi Hammer shipyard reached higher speeds.Changes include new air intakes in the engine compartment along with a customizable display on the control panel.The new Magnum 60 concept is attractive to the original design, but much more pleasing to the eye, with distinctive details throughout the American style of the 50s. The owner’s room has individual storage solutions on either side of the room to ensure clean space.Marnix Hoekstra from Vripak says that they kept the overall layout and tuning of the boat, but improved it where it was possible, for example, expanding the companion from the saloon in the middle to the double and twin cabins. They also added daylight, and in the interior they used the same tree that was used in the construction of the boat, painting it in matt white.
