Alia Yachts Has Launched the New Support Ship
The Turkish yard has launched a 36m custom support vessel. PHI Phantom, part of the PHI Project, is a great example of the yard’s metalworking skills, and features striking in-house interior design. Cor D Rover was responsible for her exterior styling, and naval architecture was by Van Oossanen. Destined to support the custom superyacht PHI by Royal Huisman, PHI Phantom reflects many elements of the larger yacht’s design.The hull was to have no fairing to finish it, so the plates had to be very accurately bent in three dimensions, then welded without creating the slightest distortion. It is flawlessly painted in the exact same matt blue-grey as the mothership. She also shares the horizontal grille work at the bow and echoes the swooping shearline of the larger vessel.PHI Phantom is built to cross oceans carrying the tenders and toys that the mothership has no garage to stow. The key here is a 9m HS Marine crane capable of lifting 5.5 tonnes out of the water and onto the vast 150 square-metre aft deck. It has more than enough power to handle the 14m gentleman’s tender currently taking shape at Spirit Yachts, as well as the Axopar 37 Suntop. A hydraulically operated lazarette under the deck stores further toys in a protected environment.However, the boat is also a technical marvel in other respects. Every system is over-specced, so as to be as reliable as possible. From pumps and piping to hydraulics and electrics, everything is designed to be as bombproof as possible. With a patented Fast Displacement Hull Form by Van Oossanen and twin Cat C-32 engines, PHI Phantom has a range of 4,200 nautical miles at 12 knots cruising speed. Flat out, she’ll do 21 knots to match the slim, easily driven hull of the mothership.The interior is designed to be as functional as possible, yet finished to superyacht crew standards. There are berths for up to six crew, but the boat is classified for handling by just three. This means that there is extra space on board, and one of the cabins has been designated as a guest cabin, with a little more volume and a desk. “When PHI Phantom does begin her adventures, she will represent one of the most robust and stylish support vessels ever built,” says Çelik. “Alia Yachts is incredibly proud to have brought this project to life, which showcases our incredibly high standards of craftsmanship and finish.”PHI Phantom is undergoing its final sea-trials now and will be delivered to the owner in June.Alia Yachts was founded in 2008 by Gokhan Çelik and Omer Koray. Located in the port of Antalya on the beautiful Turkish Riviera, Alia Yachts shipyard currently occupies approximately 8,000 m2, including three construction halls with their suites of specialist workshops and a dedicated interiors facility. With an additional 16,000 square meters under development for 2019, Alia Yachts will rank among the top facilities in the region.Credits: Alia Yachts
Benetti Has Launched the 48m Hawa
On April 29th, Benetti launched from Livorno yacht Hawa. A 48-meter yacht tailor-made for her owner, touches water for the first time.The yacht, built with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure, was designed in collaboration with the famous English studio RWD, who penned the exterior and interior design. The owner, a loyal Benetti customer, passionate about boating and with a great deal of experience behind him, declared himself very satisfied with the result obtained and recognized the shipyard for its excellent know-how and the manufacturing capacity in completing the project with his input in careful consideration.Hawa stands out for the elegant "desert sand" hull color, chosen by the owner, and the original layout which prioritizes continuous contact with the environment. The use of refined furnishing elements and materials is striking, in particular the matte painted eucalyptus with dark walnut details and inlays of various leathers and marbles.She can accommodate ten people in five cabins and nine crew members. The main deck enjoys incredible brightness, thanks to a lounge with five openings to the outside that allow continuous views of the sea. On the same deck, toward the bow, instead of the traditional galley, the owner asked to have a pantry and a large VIP cabin with shower with sauna that precedes the large master cabin, full beam and with drop down side windows. Here the space was designed with a private study for the owner, bed, two wardrobes on the port side and a lounge area with bathroom to the starboard.The lower deck houses three double cabins for guests, as well as the galley, equipped with a dumbwaiter that allows the crew to serve all decks, including the sun deck. The beach area has two side openings that deploy into platforms, overlooking the sea and adding to the considerable beach area. The aft part of the upper deck is designed for convivial moments in the open air, with areas for relaxation, conversation and sunbathing. Inside the bright sky lounge with two large opening side windows, there is a pantry, a complete gym, also with opening side windows, and the wheelhouse with full-height windows covering 180°.The hull, designed by the P.L.A.N.A. studio in collaboration with the Azimut Benetti Research and Development department, ensures high performance and excellent seaworthiness for safe and comfortable navigation. The engine room houses a pair of MTUs of 1,268 kW each, which guarantee the yacht a maximum speed of 15.5 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at the 10 knot cruising speed.This superyacht is set to be delivered in the summer of 2021. Founded in 1873, Benetti is the oldest Italian shipyard specializing in luxury yachts. Benetti designs, builds and sells composite vessels from 29 to 44m and steel and aluminium boats from 37 to over 100m. The fleet consists of five categories: Class, Oasis, B.Yond, B.Now and Custom to meet all the needs of the market. Benetti belongs to the Azimut|Benetti Group, the largest privately owned luxury yachting group in the world.Credits: Benetti
Amels 78m Full Custom Has Touched the Water
The Amels 78m Full Custom superyacht reached a major milestone in her build journey as she touched water for the first time since arriving at the yard in January last year. In the presence of the owner’s team and the designers involved in the project, as well as the Amels and Damen Yachting team, the pumps to the dry dock were started. As the water flowed into the dock, the keel of this first Amels Full Custom to be built since the introduction of the Amels Limited Editions concept was submerged, floating her up off her dry dock. The custom interiors are made by Zuretti Interior Designers. The exterior design is made by Espen Øino. “It’s definitely a unique project. The large open top deck, large aft pool and very wide side decks that can be utilised as private guest balconies are features which come together to make this design very special,” says Espen Øino about the exterior.With a gross tonnage of 2,850, the Amels 78m Full Custom will be the largest Amels superyacht to date in terms of volume on delivery. François Zuretti, Andrew Tree, Espen Oeino, Rose Damen, Jeremy Staddon and Daan Langezaal“When we started the pumps and she floated for the first time here in Vlissingen, it really was a moment of great pride. As a Full Custom, this is a yacht that is very different to the last 40 that we have delivered in terms of design, engineering and project requirements. The success of the project so far comes down to the collaboration we have with the Owner’s team, with us all working to the same goal – to create something magnificent for a happy client. This latest milestone was a major one and I am very much looking forward to the next,” says Daan Langezaa, Amels and Damen Yachting Project Manager. Damen Yachting, a division within the Damen Shipyards Group, was created in 2019. The division combines the pedigree and heritage of Amels yachts with a growing portfolio of SeaXplorer yachts and Yacht Support vessels.Credits: Amels
Speed, Style and Grace: Otam Custom Range 115 Concept
The Otam Custom Range 115 is another fully engineered model in Otam Aluminium Custom Range. The exterior lines by BG Design Firm, the same studio behind the new Otam 70 HT, are inspired by the aeronautical and automotive worlds to reflect the brand’s racy DNA. Design details include the chromed ventilation vents in the transom and the air inlet on top of the hardtop.“The philosophy behind the Otam Aluminium Custom Range is that it is fully bespoke and aimed at clients who don’t just want a boat – they want to build their ideal project,” says Otam Sales Director Matteo Belardinelli. “Over 30 meters we build in aluminium rather than advanced composites because it provides much more flexibility to personalise the yacht in every way, from the exterior aesthetics and interior layout to the propulsion specifications.”The deep-V hull has been developed by Umberto Tagliavini Marine Design to provide excellent seakeeping, comfortable entry into waves and high speeds. Extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEM) ensures a rigid hull that is not prone to flexing or twisting, while Computional Fluid Dynamics (CFD) serves to optimise performance and handling at sea.Clients can choose between a 3-engine configuration with MTU 2600-hp engines and a KaMeWa waterjet central booster for a top speed of 44 knots (cruising speed 32 knots) or twin MTU engines for a top speed of 35 knots (cruising speed 28 knots). Because no moulds are used in the aluminium construction, clients can choose to customise their yacht in multiple ways. There are various layout options for the aft cockpit, flybridge and vast foredeck. The four stateroom standard layout comprises an airy, open-plan salon and dining area behind the wheelhouse on the main deck where the extensive glazing is designed to provide panoramic sea views, even when seated. There are two en suite guest staterooms on the lower deck, a large VIP stateroom and a full-beam master stateroom amidships, together with a gym or SPA or a big pantry for best service on board 24h. Between the owner’s suite and the engine room is the dedicated crew accommodation and galley. The transom garage can house a 4.20m tender and jet ski. The shipyard’s history started in 1954 in Liguria. Its professionalism is what made it stand out, very quickly becoming the first authorized Riva yacht Service Center for the Med Sea. In the 80’s Otam fit around 25 yachts for an American builder before starting his own production of Otam 45’ and 55’, earning significant attention. Today Otam has produced around 90 yachts, becoming an Italian specialist, and, together with its custom range, offers a limitless choice between 45’ and 130’.Credits: Otam
