50m Ela Delivered by Heesen
Heesen has delivered YN 19550 MY Ela, formerly known as Project Altea. The yacht set sail from the Netherlands in July with her crew, and after meeting her owners in Gibraltar, will spend the summer cruising in the Mediterranean. Primarily intended for family use, Ela will also join the charter fleet of Zarpo Yachts to be available for selected clients.Ela has a lightweight, aluminium, fast-displacement hull, she is the second in Heesen's sub-500GT Nova Plus class. Ela was available with a very short delivery time when she caught the attention of her owners. With just three months between purchase and delivery they worked with interior designer Cristiano Gatto and the Heesen team to personalize the yacht to suit their family requirements. "Together with the client, we revisited all the loose furniture, inside and out, selecting new materials for all the upholstery and the key items from Paola Lenti, B&B Italia, Poltrona Frau, and Promemoria," said Cristiano. "But more importantly, we designed bespoke pieces, such as tables, sofas, and lamps, all beautifully crafted by Italian ateliers, who delivered them in record time." Ela can accommodate twelve guests in six staterooms, with the owners' suite on the main deck forward and the remaining five cabins – a full beam VIP, two doubles and two twins – on the lower deck."Ela is a magnificent addition to the Heesen fleet. We are very strong in this particular segment of the market – 50m all-aluminium yachts below 500 GT – and ours are recognized as the best in this market sector. Our delivery team worked seamlessly with Captain Antonio Gerini and Tony Lovec Management to deliver the yacht without fuss and on time for the summer season. On behalf of everyone at Heesen, I would like to wish the owners and their crew many happy days with family and friends wherever they may cruise!" says Friso Visser, Heesen CCO.Ela is powered by twin MTU 2000-series M72 V12s. She has a maximum speed of just under 20 knots, frugal fuel consumption, and a draft of just 2.15 meters, which makes her the most efficient yacht of her type built in the Netherlands.Heesen Yachts is a Dutch ship building company that specializes in custom-built superyachts in aluminium and steel from 30m to 70m in size. Founded in 1978, it has launched more than 170 yachts since its inception.Credits: Heesen Yachts
Riva’s New Flagship 68’ Diable Launched
The new Riva’s flagship entered the water on Lake Iseo. Riva 68’ Diable forged in the storied Sarnico shipyard and scheduled to make its debut in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. The brainchild of Mauro Micheli, founder with Sergio Beretta of Officina Italiana Design, working in partnership with the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari and the Group Engineering Department, this yacht revolutionises the open concept, incorporating exciting technological and functional design innovations that elevate liveability and comfort on board to their maximum level. The innovative built-in hard top is one of the stand-out new features of this yacht. This solution protects and shelters the central areas of the yacht, including the dining area and the helm station on the main deck. The result is total coverage and maximum comfort, without sacrificing the enjoyment and sportiness of an open yacht with a top speed of 40 knots.Another interesting functional design feature is the sunroof that can be opened in two directions (forwards and reverse) for maximum liveability and comfort on the move. The layout of the lower deck features three cabins for six guests, arranged around an open space containing a galley and a dinette for versatility and convenience. The master cabin is amidships, with the twin cabin with single beds to port and the VIP forward.“Riva 68’ Diable is the irresistible temptation to which every Riva owner and fan can’t wait to succumb. It looks like a design from the future, but is also a fantastic journey through Riva’s hallmark style and sophisticated detailing,” says Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. “An unrivalled mix of innovation and masterful hand craftsmanship, it offers outstanding performance and unparalleled comfort. I understand the enthusiasm generated around this incredible boat and it gives me immense pleasure.”Riva 68’ Diable will make its official debut in a world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, in September 2021, after which it will move on to the Genoa Boat Show.Riva is part of the Ferretti Group. This Group, led by Chief Executive Officer Alberto Galassi, is now one of the world’s leaders in the construction and sale of luxury yachts and pleasure vessels with a unique portfolio of brands: Ferretti Yachts, Riva, Pershing, Itama, Mochi Craft, CRN, Custom Line and Wally.

Azimut 68 Joins the Azimut Yachts Flybridge Collection
The newest model in the Flybridge Collection is the Azimut 68. The shipyard is offering the new Azimut 68 with three possible main deck configurations, plus a multifunctional area, each with a particular lifestyle in mind.In the first layout called Lanterna, an elegant living area is located by the main deck entrance, with the galley tucked away behind an innovative surface of ribbed wood and plexiglass. For owners who are seeking a more convivial layout, the open galley version is the ideal solution. The galley is in a discreet location towards the bow, but opens directly into the dining area, which can also be converted into a second lounge zone.For a slightly less formal layout, the aft galley arrangement is situated to readily serve indoors and more often outdoors, while keeping the cook connected with the entire social area. The dining is found immediately across from the galley as you enter from the cockpit, creating a relaxed flow, which leads to the living area forward.Each main deck option has been tastefully integrated into the overall design to complete a stunning yacht. Exterior designer Alberto Mancini penned the Azimut 68 as a further renewal of his characteristic style, sculpting the surfaces to achieve a sporty and modern design, an approach more commonly seen in sports car design. The interiors are designed by Achille Salvagni. He also designed the exterior furniture.Below deck, four cabins and three bathrooms accommodate up to eight guests, with a separate area for one or two crew members.The propulsion package of twin Volvo IPS 1350 pods carries the Azimut 68 up to a brisk maximum speed of 32 knots. <iframe width=560 height=315 src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/3gwy8QJ6htc title=YouTube video player frameborder=0 allow=accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture allowfullscreen></iframe>Azimut Yachts is an Azimut Benetti Group brand.
