106-meter invisible superyacht concept Mirage
Pieter van Geest and Tracey-Jayne Canavaggio have a combined 35 years of experience in the design field. Their talents lie in exterior and interior yacht design as well as furniture design and project management. With their extensive knowledge and experience in shipyard production, project management and owner’s representation, they maintain not only an artistic, but also a practical hands-on approach to design. For 106-meter superyacht Mirage, after extensive research on glass specifications and capabilities Van Geest Design has created this design. The glass with its visual effects combined with the overall shape of the yacht lead to this extraordinary result. Mirage is not something different, but something unique in its philosophy and execution. It will be built from mirrored glass, which makes it easily blend in with its surroundings. Staggeringly, designers claim that the 4,200 tonne vessel completely “vanishes” when you’re viewing it from more than 50 metres away.Mirage is the translation of city landscapes, sky scrapers, gigantic, present, anchored, but then again cladded with reflective surfaces, blending into the landscape, merging with its environment, giving lightness to the building, an elegant presence embracing its surroundings. The colour variable mirrored glass is developed by a German glass manufacturer, which has never been used on yachts before. All the vertical panels on the yacht will have this finish – if you were on the water it would probably be invisible from over 50 metres away. If you are on the yacht itself the mirror will project the yacht's surroundings, so in a way, it will give you a floating on air effect when onboard.Present on the water un-accessible with a closed transom, one can only board in by invitation. It is a retreat made discreet by its reflective surfaces blending on the horizon, with its decks disappearing between water and sky. Unfolding itself, Mirage tells a story of time, reflecting the day passing by on a coloured reflective surface offering a peaceful gaze on the travelled distances. Bridge deck forward the area has been designed as a gathering point, interacting with the captain, discussing the next destination while looking forward. It took 12 months to create the blueprints.<iframe width="920" height="518" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/hnqWaL_2NmU" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>
19-meter LY650 luxury yacht by Lexus
19-meter Lexus yacht is the fourth Lexus flagship, joining the LS sedan, LX SUV and LC coupe. She is a first production marine vessel to use L-finesse, the design language of Lexus. It is a result of the exploration into non-automotive ventures continues beyond the Lexus brand’s involvement in luxury lifestyle experiences related to culinary, design and film.Crafting amazing automobiles is something Lexus has pursued relentlessly, as evidenced by the beautiful hand-pleated door panels in the LS 500 or the complex paint process, inspired by the morpho butterfly, that results in dazzling Structural Blue. And crafting every touch point around the brand is an opportunity Lexus continues to seize. This maritime application is another proof point in the storied history of Lexus that explores new frontiers both inside and outside the automotive industry.Lexus continually evaluates what constitutes a luxury experience and has, as a result, ventured into the worlds of culinary, design, film, and more as alternative opportunities to interact with the brand. Driven by Lexus International President, Yoshihiro Sawa’s vision of Lexus as a brand that, “explores new ways to deliver innovative and amazing experiences for our guests,” Lexus has partnered with some of the world’s finest purveyors of experience to further celebrate the phrase, Experience Amazing. And now, Lexus returns to the water with its next expression of a Lexus yacht in the form of the LY 650. Bearing the most contemporary expression of Lexus design language, L-finesse, applied beyond the world of automobiles, the production LY 650 picks up where the stunning Lexus Sport Yacht Concept left off.Encouraged by the robust public interest in the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept, a follow-up maritime effort was fueled by Executive Vice President; Shigeki Tomoyama’s desire to, “present a dream-like vision of the luxury lifestyle; one where the Lexus Yacht expands the potential of Lexus mobility to the ocean.” Making this dream-like vision a reality, Marquis-Larson Boat Group was selected to build, sell and service the next Lexus yacht based largely on their extensive experience with bespoke boat building and their proven capability, confirmed by their work bringing the Lexus Sport Yacht Concept to life. Based in Pulaski, WI, Marquis-Larson is the ideal partner to bring the second chapter of Lexus yacht design to fruition with their thorough blend of artisanal craftsmanship, modern technology and inspired design. Complementing the Lexus brand’s heritage of takumi craftspeople who are supremely skilled in their roles, Marquis’ craftsmanship backbone is clearly demonstrated by their masterful boat builders, many of whom have been with the company for 30 years.Several of the most attractive features from the 12-meter concept have made their way onto the LY 650. Measuring 65 feet in overall length with a 5-meter beam, the newest Lexus yacht has a distinguished style found in the strong, pronounced bow, curved deck accents and accentuated aft hips. Viewed from the profile, the elegant rise and fall of the yacht’s distinctly Lexus roofline flows into rising, broad hips of the rear section. The first completed Lexus LY 650 is expected to be finished in the second half of 2019 and will make its global debut late in the year.
95-meter superyacht Kismet in $150 million movie
Previously, YachtHarbour wrote about Jay-Z and Beyonce aboard Shahid Khan's $200-million 95-metre superyacht Kismet.Few days ago, superyacht Kismet was spotted during filming of the new Michael Bay movie "Six Underground" in Taranto (Italy), which has already won the record of the biggest Netflix production. The streaming company has invested 150 million dollars for the realization of the action film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Melanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Adria Arjona and Corey Hawkins.The production has literally occupied the city, after the first shots in Florence and Tuscany. Kismet also arrived at the 30th of September. It is one of the most luxurious yachts in the world, which was moored next to the Aragonese Castle of Taranto. Netflix has chartered the boat for $1.2 million from its owner. 95-meter superyacht Kismet was built in 2014 by Lurssen and is owned by Shadid Khan, Pakistani-American billionaire and business tycoon, who is also the owner of the Fulham FC and Jacksonville Jaguars. The yacht's interior has been designed by Reymond Langton Design and her exterior styling is by Espen Oeino. A party scene with around eighty guests and some shootings was shot on the boat. Meanwhile, the city has already been the protagonist of several action scenes and an explosion right next to the yacht.The film focuses on the story of a group of 6 billionaires led by Ryan Reynolds. Each of the 6 members of the team has faked dead to become part of this group ready to fight criminals.Taranto will become in the film a Middle Eastern city, protagonist of shootings and attacks. The city, in fact, is led by a dictator victim of a scandal, for whose resolution requires the intervention of the Reynolds team. The action sequences are truly spectacular, especially the one on the revolving bridge connecting the Borgo Antico and the Borgo Nuovo and overlooking the city waterway. The sequence has foreseen the opening of the bridge and in the video below we see Manuel Garcìa Rulfo walking as the structure moves.Photos and info by Giansanto Rizzotti
