Spectre - the winner of the 2019 Displacement Motor Yachts between 500GT and 1,999GT World Superyacht Award
As we are continuing the series of the 16 winners of World Superyacht Awards , let's discuss boat number 14 - Spectre.Spectre won an Award in the category of Displacement Motor Yachts between 500GT and 1,999GT. Spectre is a 69 m / 226′5″ luxury motor yacht. She was built by Benetti in 2019. She has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. She is powered by engines giving her a maximum speed of 20 knots. The motor yacht can accommodate guests in cabins and an exterior design by Benetti, Giorgio Cassetta. The name pays tribute once again to James Bond after “Quantum of Solace” and “Diamonds Are Forever”. It’s first owner John Staluppi fell in love with the leading character in the series of films inspired by the novels of Ian Fleming.This original superyacht was developed around the latest marine technologies and combining different styles and philosophies of interior decoration. References to Art Nouveau in France mixed with modern details designed by Giorgio M. Cassetta. He said that he was very fond and proud of this project. As it was the perfect example of the ideas of the owner and the shipyard. John and Jeanette Staluppi, with their outstanding energy, pulled us together on to imagine and develop with everything that could be desired on a boat this size.The style of the interiors, created by Benetti’s Interior Style Department, feel of some French hotels and boutiques, standing out from Staluppi’s previous yachts in a more classical way. For example, the floor in the main lounge draws inspiration from the Art Nouveau style flooring in a Paris resort, with symmetrical forms and clean-cut geometrical patterns. Other references to French taste are the windows, a reminiscent of Paris’ typical Art Nouveau shops.The megayacht features with a swimming pool and touch and go helipad. Accommodating 12 guests in unforgettable comfort, the layout has two owner’s cabins: one has a private terrace, a sun lounging area and a hydromassage tub; two VIP cabins on the Main Deck and two guest cabins on the lower deck. Benetti’s most advanced construction technologies is the Ride Control technology by Naiad Dynamics - the system significantly increases stability during navigation and improves comfort on board with the help of four stabilising fins and three vertically-adjustable blades.The lines of the hi speed cruising hull by Dutch firm Mulder Design, deliver maximum navigation efficiency, with a range of 6,500 nautical miles at 12 knots and a top speed of 21.2 knots, which is 30% more than a traditional displacement hull.A seven Full Custom yachts planned in 2018/2019, including 3 giga yachts over 100 meters each, now are building in parallel at the Benetti’s Livorno shipyard.
Merveille and Feadship Yachting Revealed 77.1 Metre Eco Explorer Concept
Dutch yard Feadship with the French studio Marveille Yachting presented plans for a 77.11 metre Eco Explorer concept.The concept encompasses the most of motor and sailing yachts and features a much lighter hull shape, one of the features that helps further reduces fuel consumption.Cantenot revealed that work began on the project a year ago. One key feature is a mast system with wings “that can be propelled at twice the strength as a traditional rig,” Vollet said, meaning that fuel consumption is vastly reduced on board. Cantenot and Vollet stated the Eco Explorer’s computerised wings, which eliminate heeling while underway, mean this concept is likely to appear to traditional motor yacht owners.The computer-controlled wings make the sailing experience on board e like a motor yacht than a sailing yacht. “You use it as a motor yacht although the wind is going to be one of the major components of propulsion,” he added. Eco Explorer's speeds range up to 18 knots in a regular wind, while its top speeds can get up to 25 knots.Credits: Feadship
