122-metre superyacht concept Aurora Borealis
Kurt Strand, world renowned yacht designer, has released his latest superyacht concept, 122-meter Aurora Borealis. Kurt Strand's inspiration for this astonishing explorer yacht was the incredible nature, as well as the rough weather conditions in Northern Norway, where he was born and raised. The purpose of Aurora Borealis is to enjoy the planet's beautiful nature from the luxury inside living space. When the weather allows, the yacht can transform into an open outdoor experience. It's designed with retractable balconies and large gates, to have the perfect combination of luxury and adventure. This gigantic superyacht is meant to explore the most outpost destinations from the Arctics to the Tropics.The yacht is 6-storeys high, has a length of 122 meter and a massive beam of 20 meter. A large helicopter pod is located on the aft deck. In front of the landing pod is a swimming pool with a retractable glass floor, to move the helicopter inside the hangar, large enough to park 2 helicopters. The yacht's aviation club with bars and launch area is part of the hangar. In case of bad weather the large gate can be closed but there is still access to the deck/pool area via 2 pantographic doors integrated in the gate.In the hull side of the lower deck are 4 fold out gates for storage and launching a huge selection of tenders & toys. In the aft is a drive-in bay area for a submarine and a 45 feet tender. The owners will enjoy a 180 degree view from the 400m2 suite with full privacy, outdoor jacuzzi, sun lounge area, gym, spa, office, library, wine cellar.

The Yacht is designed with the next generation environment friendly propulsion system. 3 electric azimuth pods are powered by hydrogen fuel cell generators. It also has a Diesel powered backup gensets. The hydrogen technology is mostly used in the car industry but Kurt Strand want's to bring it to the next level in the yacht industry because he believes it is beneficial for the whole planet.
98-meter Aviva & 74-meter Elandess on the River Thames
Since last week London´s main landmark shines in a new light and leaves passers-by with plain astonishment. Right in front of the Tower Bridge two brand new Mega Yachts have positioned themselves for an Abeking & Rasmussen Rendezvous. A sheer impressive backdrop; the anticipation for the Monaco Yacht Show in September is rising!The first unexpected appearance at the Tower Bridge was made by Aviva. With a length of almost 100m Aviva is the biggest yacht built by the pedigree yard in Lemwerder. Only a few weeks ago she had been seen in New York. Mooring right in front of the Statue of Liberty in New York she caused quite an excitement in the yachting scene. With the Wimbledon Tennis Championship taking place in London at the moment Aviva with her full-size padel tennis court inside has chosen just the right berthing spot.Then, only three days later, the recently delivered Elandess entered the River Thames and completed the stunning scenery with her mooring berth right opposite. Before her maiden trip to London Elandess had a flying visit to Norway after she was waived goodbye by the Abeking & Rasmussen staff in Lemwerder on Sunday, 1st July.Although Elandess cannot score with a Padel Tennis Court she holds another special feature: The sub-waterline Nemo Lounge which offers an exceptional experience for the Owners and their guests: A huge glass front allows for views to life above and below the waterline.Elandess will surely be one of the most remarkable new builds at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018.Both these yachts have been designed to be a floating home for the Owners and their families. We are sure that this won´t be the last time for these two masterpieces to reunite again in other waters of the world.Photos by Tom van Oossanen via Abeking
Auction of the billionaire's 95-metre superyacht Indian Empress failed
In March, 2018 YachtHarbour has reported that 95-metre Indian Empress was confiscated in Malta for unpaid wages. In June, 2018 95-metre billionaire's superyacht Indian Empress was sold in auction to pay off debts.Auction, ordered by the court has found the winner, which had payment deadline, but he failed to meet it. Iranian buyer needed to pay €43.5 million till the 5th of July and then asked the Maltese court for a 15 day prolongation, but the court rejected the request. What will happen next with the yacht is a new auction. The previous one started with the bids starting from €25 million, and just 3 bids were made during it. It's a real good opportunity to get the superyacht of this size for this price, but not so many people are ready to pay such amount of money in such a short period.The yacht was abandoned by her owner - Vijay Mallya, in September 2017. Much of Mallya’s assets in India and elsewhere have been either seized or frozen as he faces charges of money laundering and defrauding a consortium of Indian banks. Indian Empress was targeted by an arrest warrant issued in favour of Melita Power Diesel Limited for outstanding payment of €651,399. The current owner purchased Indian Empress in 2006 for $113 million. Originally built for a member of the royal Qatari family, the vessel has also been a very popular charter yacht. Indian Empress had a major €6.4 million refit in 2016, where the interior has swapped deep red and rich gold colours and ornate gilt-work and traditional carpets for contrasting woods, pale neutral colours and large impressive art. Vijay Mallya, a supposed owner of the Indian Empress denied being the owner of the yacht.
63-metre Rossinavi 63-metre superyacht Utopia IV tour
In March 2018, YachtHarbour has reported that 63-metre yacht Project Vector has been launched by the Italian shipyard Rossinavi in their Viareggio-based yard and christened Utopia IV. The yacht project was commissioned by an American client in November 2014.This fast displacement yacht boasts an exterior design by Team For Design, which balances between elegance and attitude. The yard itself describes it as the compromise between a tri-deck motor yacht and a speed boat. Key features do include 70 square metre beach club, 3 spa pools and a touch-and-go helipad.Her naval architecture is by the Italian studio Arrabito Naval Architects. Gobbi's studio also designed the interior, which includes rich wood panelling to divide the main-deck saloon from the dining area.With a fast displacement hull, Utopia IV is powered with 4 Rolls Royce engines as well as four Kamewa waterjets, can reach a top speed of 28 knots and an cruising speed of 15 knots. She can easily reach a cruising speed of 18 knots using only 35% of propulsion power. The owners of the yacht created a video tour.<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kd_F1V6Y7_c" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>“We wanted it to feel like a speedboat, with a minimum draft, efficient in its range of navigation, with an intelligent propulsion and completely tailor-made. At the beginning of the design process, we had to consider the relationship between the engine horsepower necessary to achieve certain speeds, and its weight... The overall balance is a particular feature of this boat, an interesting idea which makes Vector unique," said Federico Rossi, the COO of Rossinavi. With the interior volume of 930 GT, the interior is sleek and wide, with the opportunity to sleep 12 across 6 spacious cabins. The forward facing owner’s suite boasts a six-metre balcony and floor to ceiling glass windows that surround her 180-degree panoramic view. The master suite also includes a grand bathroom with wood panelling and marble, a double shower and Jacuzzi bath.
How to charter a yacht in Croatia?
Croatia has become one of the most popular yacht charter destinations in the world, as people visiting its Dalmatian coast are impressed with its stunning architecture of medieval cities, amazing sea views, fine food, glamorous beach clubs and rich history. There are thousands of islands in Croatia, which you can reach by chartering the yacht, with impressive waterfalls, hospitable towns, clean ports and warm, Mediterranean climate with the Adriatic’s blue-green seas and rocky coastline with secluded coves.Dalmatia is a narrow belt of the east shore of the Adriatic Sea, stretching from the island of Rab in the north to the Bay of Kotor in the south. The most beautiful hotspots to visit are cities of Dubrovnik and Split, as well as the islands of Hvar and Korcula. There are many other islands to visit in Croatia, such as Brac, Mljet, Vis. Dubrovnik is a well-known historical city, which will be recognized immediately by the Game of Thrones fans, with its unapproachable ramparts, amazing sea views and exotic gardens full of date palms and bougainvillea. You can dine atop the city walls, dive from them into a beautiful sea or even go to a nightclub, which is placed right in the 16th century fortress.If you are chartering a yacht on the Dalmatian Coast, you’re no doubt impatient to get out into the dreamy islands. Yet Dubrovnik’s charms are countless, and those with a love of history, fine food, architecture and dramatic views will certainly want to linger a little while.Alexander Coles, Charter Broker, Bespoke Yacht CharterMoving through the Dalmatian coast, there is an island of Korcula, which is also called "mini-Dubrovnik". The best preserved medieval architecture in the Adriatic is here on the island, a well developed wine culture. The yacht's anchor can be dropped in one of the island's beautiful coves, while enjoying the cities' Venetian architecture mixed with palm trees, or visiting the House of Marco Polo or St. Mark's Cathedral, built over 3 centuries ago. There are also some places for luxurious shopping, as well as fabulous restaurants with amazing dining views.The history of Korcula is the history of the Great European empires, surging and falling over two millennia, leaving behind the superb melange of culture, cuisine, and architecture that makes Korcula so special to visit. Alexander Coles, Charter Broker, Bespoke Yacht Charter On a yacht charter in the buzzing city of Split, which usually starts or ends here, being the second largest city in Croatia, there is something for everyone. You can dine or even have a party inside the ruins of the Roman palace, enjoy luxurious shopping in the best boutiques, and walk through living history, as there are many cathedrals and palaces or just have a promenade along the Riva boulevard.There is something for everyone in this ancient, bustling city, where every day of summer feels like a party just waiting to happen. And where else can you shop, drink and dine inside the walls of a Roman emperor’s palace? Split really is like nowhere else on earth, a place where the old world and the new collide in spectacular ways. Alexander Coles, Charter Broker, Bespoke Yacht CharterThe ideal way to experience the night life on your yacht charter in Croatia is to visit Hvar island. But there are also some romantic places on the island, with pretty coves, memorable restaraunts, lagoons and towering cliffs. The island boasts world-class wineries, as well as amazing sunset bars and rooftop pools. Some of the biggest Mediterranean parties take place here at the Carpe Diem Beach.The famously decadent island of Hvar, where hazy, blissful days of swimming off your charter yacht are followed by nights of champagne-spraying abandon on moonlit terraces by the sea.Alexander Coles, Charter Broker, Bespoke Yacht CharterSummer is already here.
