Video: Lürssen’s Nord Arrives at Gibraltar
The 142m superyacht Nord has docked at Gibraltar. Previously known as Opus and Project Redwood, Nord was designed by design studio Nuvolari Lenard. The owner is represented by Moran Yacht & Ship. Explorer vessel Nord can accommodate 36 guests in 20 staterooms.“At Lürssen, we believe that to build a yacht it is vital to work as a team, and to execute such a comprehensive project, an excellent team is necessary,” says Managing Partner, Peter Lürssen. Gibraltar Yachting shows how it was. 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, including Octopus, Rising Sun, and Azzam.Credits: Carl Groll/Lürssen; YouTube/Gibraltar Yachting
Jeanneau Yachts 60 Marks Briand’s 120th Production Design
Jeanneau Yachts 60 became the Philippe Briand’s 120th production yacht design. She was due to be launched at this year’s Dusseldorf Boat Show in January, but the bold new design is still making waves after a virtual launch.It took four years of hard work with Jeanneau’s in-house designers to bring the project to fruition. Measuring 60ft overall, with a modest taper towards the stern, a chine in the hull and a reverse bow, the proportions of the boat are absolutely amazing.“The JY 60 is special because it is the last in the range, and also the 120th of our series drawings,” explains Briand. “We put all our know-how into the yacht, and also a lot of personal emotion. I am used to putting myself in the shoes of the customer every time I draw a production boat. It's easy for me: I would like to own this one.”Beneath the aesthetics, the technical qualities of the hull and rig also promise agility, seakeeping and excellent balance. The chine will dig in to fight heeling, while buoyancy at the bow and stern reduce pitching. Twin rudders give a perfect balance on the helm, and the integrated bowsprit makes light work of launching a big reaching sail. In fact, the boat can be readily sailed by a couple, thanks to the option of in-mast furling for the main and a self-tacking jib. Either way, it is a fast hull, capable of an easy 8kt upwind and 12kt on a broad reach. Philippe Briand“This is a real sailor’s boat,” says Briand. “It is ideally suited to almost any brief from fast bluewater cruising to a leisurely jaunt across the bay – a boat for both the Mediterranean and the Baltic. The interior space is the owner’s home on the water, while her exterior living spaces are unmatched by the competition. She is more fun to sail, faster and more comfortable under sail and power than any catamaran available for the same budget.”The interior design of the yacht was made by Andrew Winch: sculpted surfaces with the use of real wood, fine fabrics and leathers create an atmosphere of timeless elegance below. It has the option of a full-beam owner’s cabin that is simply flooded with light, with a his-and-hers bathroom not usually seen in this size range. The open galley is positioned forward and includes the option of a full-height fridge. Meanwhile, the floor of the flexible saloon is slightly raised to give clearer sightlines out through the coachroof windows. This shipyard was founded in 1957 by Henri Jeanneau, and it has designed, produced and sold an extremely wide selection of over forty outboard, inboard, sailboat and yacht models around the world for over 60 years. Jeanneau stands out with its elegant, ingenious boats, ranging from 15 to 64 feet, with their pure, modern, timeless lines created by world-renowned architects.Credits: Jeanneau Yachts
Feadship Has Launched The 94m Project 817
The new 94m Feadship hybrid yacht Project 817 launched in Kaag, the Netherlands yesterday. Her advanced hybrid propulsion system allows the yacht to cruise on diesel-electric power at 12 knots. In diesel mode she’s able to reach a top speed of 20 knots. Her exterior was made by Azure and Feadship's Studio De Voogt and the interior is the work of Peter Marino Architects. Project 817 can carry a 14m tender, the largest ever installed on any Feadship. “There she is, the 94m Project 817; this groundbreaking eco-friendly Feadship has left the yard for the first time. Onlookers are admiring her special pearl-white livery, which is housing an exceptionally advanced hybrid propulsion system,” the shipyard’s Facebook page notes. Feadship was formed as a group in 1949 as a marketing partnership between six Dutch shipyards, de Vries Lentch, Van de Stadt, Witsen & Vis, Akerboom, De Vries Scheepsbouw and Van Lent Shipyard, and De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship is well-known as one of Netherlands’ most elite yacht builders and delivers superyachts from 50–100+ meters in length.Credits: Feadship

Denison led other brokerage houses with 65 total transactions sold by 24 different yacht brokers. This is the second year in a row that Denison ranked number one in superyacht sales. “In this age of evolving technologies, if you’re caught singing the same old tune, you will eventually be drowned out in white noise. Our in-house marketing team has allowed us to remain dynamic and nimble. Rather than waiting to respond to changes in the market of 2020, our team was perfectly poised to take on the challenges of the year,” said Josh Valoes, Director of Marketing.Despite the challenges of the pandemic, Denison was fortunate to experience one of the best years in terms of total yacht sales, charters booked, and marketing goals. The team adapted through shelter-in-place orders and canceled boat shows, yet continuously strived to make the yacht-buying process easy and safe for clients. 2020 Global superyacht sales infographic“2020 presented us with plenty of obstacles to navigate, but we entered the year with momentum from strong sales in 2018 and 2019. Our successes in 2020 were the culmination of hard work, vision, and focus,” commented Superyacht Director, Ben Farnborough. “We adapted to new ways of staying in front of buyers, sellers, and charter clients. We have a dynamic team with industry-hardened experience, youthful drive, and determination in equal measure; a group that loves what they do and always asks 'what’s next?' We’re excited to continue building our brand and making a mark on the large yacht sector.”Denison Yachting has long been a leader in the yachting industry, with a rich family history dating back to 1948 with the start of Broward Marine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Today, the company provides complete yachting services worldwide, from sales and charters to yacht management and new construction. Credits: Denison Yachting
