Brand new 66m support vessel Hodor for 87m Feadship Lonian
Australian naval architecture company Incat Crowther has opened up about their involvement in the creation of the long-awaited 66-metre support yacht Hodor by Spanish builder Astilleros Armón. The vessel is designed to support the new 87-metre Feadship superyacht Lonian.Acting as designers and naval architects of the project, Incat Crowther worked closely with Lonian’s owner for a fully customised solution., aimed to serve the mothership with safe guest transfers, extended recreational capabilities and additional supplies such as crew and equipment.First time for the Shadow Cat range, Hodor’s platform offers vast amounts of deck and storage space, flexibility, stability, efficiency and capability.The design uses the robust engineering of hulls proven in offshore platform service, such as the SEACOR CREWzer class and Incat Crowther 70m Fast Crew Boat (FCB) class. The hull incorporates a reverse bow, a deadweight capacity of 240 tonnes and a low propeller draft of 3.1 metres.The yacht features a helipad compliant for helicopters of 6 tonnes and up to D-value of 16 metres, and can accommodate five tenders (the largest one makes 17 metres in length), jet skis, quad bikes, a submarine garage, a large complement of crew, staff and support equipment.The tenders and submarine can be launched both from the upper and main decks. A portable davit on the fore deck facilitates the launch and recovery of the vessels ROV and can also be used for additional jet ski storage.The yacht comes with special zones dedicated for fresh and frozen food storage, additional storage for the mother vessel, waste treatment and general and spares stores. She comes with dive equipment fully integrated with compressors, NITROX and O2 facilities, as well as a hospital with decompression chamber.Propelled by two main engines, Hodor will reach her top speed at 22.5 knots, and cruise comfortably at 14 knots for up to 5,500 nautical miles.

Russian billionaire’s 143m sailing yacht A spotted in Monaco harbour
Currently the 10th largest superyacht in the world and one of the most futuristic ones, the 142.8-metre sailing yacht A has been spotted in Monaco, reports The Sun. The vessel is owned by a Russian industrialist tycoon Andrey Melnichenko, whose net worth is estimated at $13.4 billion by Forbes.Photo Credit: BackGrid via The SunEstimated at about $500 million, the yacht was built by German yard Nobiskrug in 2017. Although her 142.8-metre LOA would give Melnichenko's new flagship the title of largest sailing yacht in the world, many experts rather consider her more of a hybrid between the two types due to her technical classification as a sail-assisted motor yacht.Part of the renowned A fleet, the yacht features exterior and interior designs by Philippe Starck. With masts taller than Big Ben at nearly 100 meters in height, S/Y A reaches a top speed of 20 knots without using her sails. Photo Credit: BackGrid via The SunS/Y A boasts a digital control system that has a touch-sensitive sheet of black glass, allowing the crew to raise and lower sails and the anchor with a simple swipe.The vessel offers accommodation to up to 20 guests as well as a crew of 54 across her eight floors. Shrouded in secrecy throughout her build and following her delivery, very little details are known about the amenities onboard the sailing yacht. Photo Credit: BackGrid via The SunAmong the yacht's key known features is an underwater observation pod and a large swimming pool with a retractable roof located towards the bow of the boat. She is also equipped with a helipad.Reportedly, Melnichenko also owns the $300 million motor yacht A, a custom Boeing 737 private jet as well as properties around the world, including a penthouse in New York City and a villa in the French Riviera. He lives a jet-setting lifestyle with his wife Aleksandra, former model and pop star from Serbia. The pair married in an opulent wedding in the south of France in 2005, which featured performances by Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera.
Sunseeker presents limited edition series in the memory of its founder
British yacht builder Sunseeker International has announced that the first ten hulls of recently introduced Hawk 38 line will be part of a special limited-edition series, in the memory of Sunseeker founder, Robert Braithwaite CBE DL, who had passed away in March 2019. The Hawk 38, a new high-performance chase boat model, was the last project Robert was involved with and therefore a fitting tribute to him. Each of the ten boats will carry a polished stainless steel plaque on the helm dashboard numbered from RB001 to RB010.The 11.85-metre yacht design has been developed in collaboration with Fabio Buzzi Design, who himself is a winner of 43 World Speed Records and 55 World Championships. Fabio Buzzi also was present at the yacht’s helm during the trials. The model reflects Mr. Braithwaite’s passion for speed and performance, delivering an incredible top speed of 68.7 knots during her sea trials. The model reaches her impressive speed with the power of twin Mercury R400 outboard engines. Still, with the yacht's console, carbon fibre roof, deck mouldings and fittings final calculated top speed will make 62-63 knots.The Hawk 38’ key features comprise a foredeck fitted with a sunbathing pad and optional foredeck sail canopy, a helm station located midships and a U-shaped seating around a central table facing the aft. The cocooning helm station is shielded by a double-curvature ventilated glass screen with a sweeping black carbon fibre hard top.Inside, within a beam of 3 metres the boat features a closet underneath the helm, and a space for two drawer fridges under the yacht's triple bench stern seats. The yacht will be also fitted with grills and swim speakers facing aft. The console unit is fitted with a Simrad navigation system, consisting of the latest 16-inch Evo 3 touch screen multifunction display with GPS and Wi-Fi capability. Power-assisted steering is courtesy of the intelligent leather trimmed tilt steering wheel incorporating full control of the navigation system.Throughout the boat, there is multiple built-in storage such as a cavernous stowage locker with carbon fibre lid at the bow, which can be used for toys including two seabobs with dedicated bulkhead-mounted charging units. Commenting on the new limited-edition series, Sunseeker CEO, Andrea Frabetti said: The legacy of the Sunseeker brand is built on developing performance boats such as the Hawk 38 – it’s in our DNA and something Robert was extremely passionate about having raced extensively in his early career. I am honoured to unveil this special edition series of the Hawk 38, a very fitting tribute to our founder.Robert Braithwaite was an inspiration to everyone at Sunseeker and to the wider marine industry, recognised as a boating pioneer, a true visionary and someone who changed the face of boating forever.
