Design studio 3deluxe has unveiled its FY.01 low carbon-emission superyacht concept. A year ago the studio developed a climate-friendly VY.01 superyacht. FY.01 is a Flettner Rotor powered catamaran superyacht which showcases the benefits of this forgotten innovation. The outcome is a superyacht with incomparable open deck experiences and a strong profile. The new yacht design study illustrates the potential of the Flettner rotor as another powerful element down the path to achieving the goal of zero emissions.“The significant profile of FY.01 can become a clearly visible statement not only for the focus on sustainability and innovation by the future owner but also for an industry on the forefront changing the mindset towards a sustainable hedonistic future,” comments Björn Asmussen, 3deluxe Ocean Director. The Flettner Rotors use rotating vertical pipes to transform wind energy into a highly efficient transversal force. Very much like a topspin in tennis or a curveball in baseball change direction due to their rotation. Responsible for this effect is the so-called Magnus force. Over the recent years this forgotten technology is having a powerful revival due to the availability of new technologies and materials. Currently predominantly on utility vessels companies are starting to substantially increase fuel efficiency on large scale commercial vessels by adding Flettner Rotors.Silently powered by electricity generated by the white solar panels on the roof surfaces of the yacht, the biggest potential is in the incredible efficiency of this system. Depending on the wind conditions, the force generated by the rotor supersedes a sail of equivalent size. The lightweight, up to 40m high cylinders are constructed by sustainable NFC Natural Fiber Composite.In combination with state of the art steering and navigation systems, this allows to reduce the energy consumption and the CO2 emissions of this cruising superyacht by up to 40%. The electric hybrid drives installed in the catamaran bodies of the FY.01 can therefore be optimized in their efficiency. The capacity of the high efficiency batteries will also provide the needed energy over a longer period of time. The 100-meter yacht is a catamaran which serves to provide a steady base for the three almost 30-meter-high lightweight rotors, arranged in a triangular pattern on the superstructure. This layout of the vertical elements ensures the yacht is far from resembling customary sailing boats or motor yachts – and thus heralds the launch of a completely new type of ship.FY.01 is a 20m wide vessel, and provides highly appealing open decks, which might involve a free-floating infinity pool spanned between the hulls via a central protected atrium area midships, or the dramatic bow tips that offer a fire-pit lounge and a shallow, salt-water pool, creating highly attractive spaces in the forward section. Vertical greenhouse modules are integrated into the uppermost deck and provide fresh food for the adjacent open show kitchen. The galley is thus removed from somewhere on the lower decks, brought up topsides to the fresh air – and morphs into a key location for communal and entertaining preparation of meals, becoming the central communicative space on board.Midships are home to the living room, the owner’s space, indoor dining, a small indoor park, and the wheelhouse.3deluxe as a design office with its headquarters in Wiesbaden unites around 40 creative professionals from the areas of architecture, interior design and brand design under one roof. The multifaceted projects receive worldwide attention. The office currently realizes projects in Germany, USA, Dubai, Lithuania, Finland, and Italy.Credits: 3deluxe

At the Monaco Yacht Show Lürssen exhibits Ahpo, the largest yacht at the Show. In addition to the exhibition of Ahpo, the German shipyard also informs the visitors about innovative topics, such as Fuel Cell Technology. AhpoLast year Lürssen announced the building of their first yacht with fuel cell technology as well as the set-up of an Innovation Laboratory at their yard in Bremen. The Innovation Laboratory is a demonstration facility that is used to simulate and test the integration and operation of a Marine Hybrid Fuel Cell System on board a yacht powered by methanol. The fuel cell was integrated into the Innovation Lab this summer and has already successfully completed the first test runs. Under real life ambient conditions and with all required auxiliary systems this demonstration plant can be considered to be the final preparations to bring fuel cells on board a yacht successfully. Visitors of the Monaco Yacht Show can take a virtual tour of the Innovation Lab at Lürssen stand. Lürssen has committed to a strategic partnership with Freudenberg, one of the leading experts for maritime fuel cells and a global technology group with around 50,000 employees in 60 countries. An essential milestone in maritime fuel cell technology is that Freudenberg has recently received type approval from RINA. The safety concept thus conforms to the IMO Interim Guideline and is approved for use on all types of ships. This is also the world's first type approval for a maritime fuel cell system with integrated fuel reforming for the fuel type methanol.“With Freudenberg e-Power Systems we have a strong partner at our side. We both have the aim to bring fuel cells on-board ships in the near future and revolutionize the yacht’s energy and propulsion system. The innovation laboratory will definitely bring us a step closer to a CO2 emission free Lürssen yacht,” says Peter Lürssen. Lürssen is a German shipyard with headquarters in Bremen-Vegesack and shipbuilding facilities in Lemwerder, Berne and Bremen-Aumund. Founded in 1875, Lürssen is one of the world's leading builders of custom luxury superyachts and has launched many of the largest yachts in the global fleet.Credits: Lürssen

The Istanbul-based shipyard Sirena Marine expands – its range of vessels will soon include superyachts. The new superyacht line currently includes three models, measuring 35, 42 and 50 meters respectively. 50m “From the Sirena 58 to the Sirena 88, the Sirena 68, and Sirena 78, our goal has been to provide yachts that exceed expectations in every size category in which we build. We are now ready to take the next step, which is why we are pushing beyond the 100-foot threshold,” says İpek Kıraç, Sirena Yachts’ Chairwoman and President.35mThe new Sirena superyacht line will feature exteriors by Italian designer Luca Vallebona and naval architecture by Van Oossanen Naval Architects from the Netherlands, with the interior designs of each vessel fully customisable.42mOnboard space ideal for socializing, amenities include fold-out wing decks, multi-level gathering spaces equipped with plunge pools and sunpads, as well as deck areas.Luca Vallebona“The Sirena’s superyachts will be sporty, elegant and offer large open spaces,” said Luca Vallebona. “I would like to underline two references to the past that I used for the concepts. The first one is the use of words like patio and pergola that come straight from the classic Latin age, as I am fascinated with the architecture. The other one is the bottom line of the main deck side window that can be seen as nothing else than a sheerline of a beautiful J Class, a timeless symbol of luxury and sportiness.”50mAnother notable feature of all of the vessels in the new Sirena Yachts line can be found in their prioritization of the owner’s privacy and comfort, which clearly feeds into the innovative layout of the new superyachts. Çağın Genç“The average age of our owners has decreased by 10 years, and is now in the 40-50 age bracket, meaning that they are looking for different features in their yachts. We have removed the formal dining area, as these owners want to be more sociable in the exterior areas and enjoy more informal meals with their friends. To ensure that the owner still maintains their privacy when they want it, we have created an owner’s private terrace where they can spend time alone and relax without being with other guests,” explains Çağın Genç, Sirena Marine CEO. 50mSirena Yachts is a Turkish yacht brand. The company produces semi-displacement motor yachts ranging from 17m to over 30m.Credits: Sirena Yachts
