80-metre Heesen's superyacht Project Cosmos with interior by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design
Previously, YachtHarbour has reported that Heesen sold its 80-metre Project Cosmos.Now, the Dutch yard is announcing that Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design has been appointed by the owners of Project Cosmos to design the interior of their new yacht.This is the third collaboration between Heesen and the award-winning Dutch studio. Previously, Sinot worked on the design of Azamanta, the first in the 55m Fast Displacement Steel class, and the 70m FDHF multi-award-winning Galactica Super Nova, Heesen’s largest yacht launched to date.At 80.07 metres, 1,700 Gross Tons and with a top speed of 29 knots, Project Cosmos will be the world’s largest and fastest full-aluminium motor yacht with conventional propeller propulsion system.The interior design for this exciting project is inspired by elements from nature. Natural mathematics, such as the Fibonacci sequence, form the basis for the interior architecture. Together with clear graphic lines the result is a clean architectural environment. Special, featured materials, such as backlit onyx, straw marquetry and crystal glass panels are framed within the architectural lines to emphasise the beauty of these materials.Custom design furniture elements constructed from glass, marble, metal, and various types of wood add the finishing touches to the interior décor. The shipyard’s main interior workshop is situated in Winterswijk, 120 kilometres from Oss, and provides more than 7,000 square metres of working space. Here, skilled cabinet makers work on up to five Heesen projects simultaneously, and is where all of the luxury areas are created. At the shipyard in Oss, 30 craftsmen work on the interior for all of the service areas.Project Cosmos, with exterior lines penned by Winch Design, is due for delivery in April 2022.
53-metre superyacht Tala by Turquoise
New renderings of the 53-metre project Tala has been released by Turkish yacht builder Turquoise Yachts. The delivery of this yacht with an usual 720GT, with three-decks and DeBasto Designs interior and exterior design is expected in 2020. The layout includes an owner's suite and VIP forward on the main deck and four further guest suites on the lower deck. Her hull and superstructure are completed.Luiz de Basto said : “With Tala’s enormous volume, my objective was to make the exterior less bulky and give a feeling of a forward dynamic movement, rather than a static feel. I wanted the design to show movement and purpose from any angle. I achieved this with the long ascending line from the swim platform all the way up to the mast and down to the pilothouse windshield.”With everything oversized on board, it is no surprise to find a massive swim platform at the stern that simplifies and makes tender operations far safer and more convenient for guests and crew. The fun continues inside with a gym and sauna on the beach deck. Throughout the yacht, DeBasto has incorporated natural separations between crew and guests with secret alleys on both the main and lower deck to enable non-intrusive service when needed. Large windows will bring natural light into the endless precious woods and other natural materials that will characterise Tala’s living spaces. Tala is fitted with twin 1,300 HP Caterpillar engines, with an expected top speed of 15 knots.

Crew programs in Europe's largest port by volume
After a successful introduction over the winter season, the Antibes port will be growing its offerings for crews based in Port Vauban.Port Vauban, Europe’s largest port by volume, has announced that it will be continuing its Crew Program of events and activities into the summer. The decision to extend the program year-round is based on the success of its first season running the initiative over the winter and spring.The dedicated Crew Program team has crafted a varied roster of events that cover wellness, sports and social activities, as well as professional development, giving crew of yachts docked in Port Vauban an opportunity to make the most of their time in Antibes.“The port is very large and caters to many different yachting segments, from smaller, locally owned pleasure craft to the largest superyachts in the world. The thinking behind the Crew Program is to build a strong sense of community and help provide an opportunity to connect all the crews that use Port Vauban, as well as offer some fun activities. We are here to create a positive environment for the crew and, although we have only been running the initiative for a few months, so far the feedback has been very positive,” said Marianne Fourticq, Director of Port Vauban’s Crew Program.A VARIED MIX OF ACTIVITIESHighlights of the winter season Crew Program have included complementary yoga classes, basketball tournaments, golf days, accompanied bike rides around the Côte d’Azur, and trips to local ski resorts and to see the Antibes Sharks basketball team.In March, Port Vauban hosted a “Job Dating” career fair in the Bastion St Jaume to provide a networking platform for crew seeking work, with over 150 on board roles open to candidates, and seasonal positions for land-based professionals looking to work at Port Vauban and its sister ports in Antibes-Juan Les Pins, Cannes, Nice and Golfe Juan.As well as continuing the Crew Program over the summer months with new sporting activities and social events, Port Vauban introduce now Café Ponton, a complimentary weekly breakfast truck that will provide crews with a place to enjoy a sociable alfresco meeting point in the mornings.“Although the summer season is a lot busier for many crew, who have less personal time over the coming months, we see the Crew Program as a great way to offer some fun activities off the boat, such as early morning or evening sporting activities, paddle boarding, dockside barbecues and the weekly food truck. We are excited to continue the momentum of the Crew Program,” added Fourticq.VAUBAN 21 AND FUTURE PLANS FOR THE PORTThe Crew Program has given the Port Vauban team a valuable opportunity to engage one-to-one with the crews in Antibes, both those already working on yachts as well as those looking to find work via crew houses and recruitment agencies. This improved engagement is already proving fruitful in creating a better understanding of what captains and crew are looking for from the port, as it continues its development of services and facilities.A weekly Captains Apéro with complementary drinks and snacks has been organised by Port Vauban at the IYCA Beach Club as a way to engage with the superyacht captains both in Port Vauban and on the Quai des Milliardaires. In particular, this has assisted in helping captains to understand the ongoing developments of the new Vauban 21 project since the acquisition by Riviera Ports, providing an opportunity to discuss the project with Port Vauban’s directors in a relaxed and informal setting.“It is an exciting time for Port Vauban with our anticipated new developments and offerings through the Vauban 21 project. The Crew Program continues to be an important part of this new direction for the services offered by Port Vauban and Rivera Ports. We are enthusiastic to continue building our strong relationship with the crew who use the port and make it what it is,” concluded FourticqABOUT PORT VAUBAN - NEW CONTRACTS & PORT LAYOUTThe current consignment of contracts that Port Vauban Antibes has for yachts of all sizes is due to expire on 31 December 2021, and so the Vauban’s team is in the process of revising its layout and resigning contracts with existing clients, which will come into effect on 1 January 2022. The contracts will have a 24-year term maximum with guarantee of use. Approximately 800 berths are currently for sale, including 300 for yachts from 20 to 170 meters. As one of the only ports in the region offering long-term leases of this nature, it provides owners with a unique opportunity to secure a premium berth and enjoy the best yachting location in the Med.Check our Timeline platform to get the full access to our analytics platform, that offers you a detailed report on the timeline of each superyacht, real time market view to see the yacht market developing and much more!
