New Customized Limo Tender 27 Presented by Wooden Boats
Wooden Boats are known for styles that do not amaze just for the sake of it, they use real boats that have solidity and cutting-edge technological solutions as their strong points without, of course, forgetting design. When the first Limo Tender 27 was built in 2020, the idea was essentially of a model that a particularly demanding owner would be interested in, destined to become a unique item. Two years later the newly launched Limo Tender 27 is ready to join a 52-meter Sanlorenzo and compete with it in terms of exclusivity and technology.“This second Limo Tender 27 shares with the first only the hull lines and the construction technology,” explains Marco Arnaboldi, Wooden Boats founder. “Everything else is totally customized to meet the requests of an owner who had very clear ideas and who received from us equally precise answers, down to the smallest detail. So speaking of a second model is not in fact accurate: each Limo Tender 27 is born with its own distinct personality, to best adapt to the owner's requests and, consequently, to the style of the yacht it will be stowed in.”The hull is 7.50 meters long and 2.55 meters wide, the build is extremely light but strong, with extensive use of carbon fiber – a consolidated practice of Wooden Boats, true masters in the processing of cutting-edge materials with an unbeatable weight/strength ratio. The bridge is in the bow, which leaves ample space to accommodate 12 guests. At the stern, the transom can be folded down to create a small swim platform equipped with a ladder for climbing out of the sea. All these makes the Limo Tender 27 an ideal boat not only for transfers from the mother yacht to land, but also a welcoming day cruiser if required.The class B certification confirms that safety has also been duly taken into account and, therefore, “flying” at 37 knots (the maximum speed reached in the first tests) will be all fun and no risk. The recommended cruising speed is around 30 knots, therefore clearly above average, thanks also to the generous thrust of a 270 hp Mercury Diesel engine with stern drive.“Everything was created in the Wooden Boats shipyard according to the owner's requests, from the construction of the hull to the interior furnishings, up to the individual armrests of the seats, obviously based on our original designs,” continues Marco Arnaboldi. “Compared to the first Limo Tender 27, here the owner wanted a rigid and non-removable deckhouse, therefore a 12V air conditioning system and a sliding sunroof were provided.”Wooden Boats was founded in 1984; the Arnaboldi naval engineering office offers highly specialized services in the field of luxury displacement and planing yachts, as well in the fields of military and commercial boats. Studio Arnaboldi has collaborated with leading Italian brands such as Benetti, Sanlorenzo, Pershing, Mangusta (Effebi), Admiral, SA, Perini, VSY, Rossinavi, Azimut and Baglietto and has also worked with top designer names, including Della Rolle Giacomelli, Tommaso Spadolini, Giorgio Cassetta, Marco Casali, Francesco Paszkowski, Luca Dini and Guido De Groot.Credits: Leonardo Andreoni/Wooden Boats
Seadeck Series Presented by Azimut
Azimut Yachts has introduced the first series of hybrid motor yachts called Seadeck. A new line that embodies the ideal of a return to nature, thanks to technological solutions that reduce emissions by up to 40% and the Fun Island, has been developed in collaboration with Alberto Mancini and Matteo Thun & Antonio Rodriguez, making their debut in the world of yachting.Seadeck 7Over half of Azimut’s fleet is now made up of Low Emission Yachts, in fact, and the latest revolution in the history of nautical design is Benetti’s Oasis Deck™, an instant success that soon became the new experience and style paradigm for the entire industry. The Seadeck Series achieves this ideal by combining two aspects that define Azimut’s approach, technological innovation and creativity in both style and design, the result of contamination and inspirations from the world of industrial design and architecture.Seadeck 6Seadeck is in fact the first series of models from 60’ up that already integrates Volvo hybrid propulsion, onboard systems designed to reduce energy consumption and solutions to cut emissions: more than 40% carbon fiber surface, the planing hull is the most efficient ever built by Azimut, zero-emissions roadstead stop, thanks to state-of-the-art battery pack. A combination that will deliver a 40% reduction in CO2 emission over a year of average use, both when cruising and at anchor, compared to a traditional flybridge boat of similar dimensions.Seadeck 6The onboard life has brought about a full return to nature – the Seadeck Series is the new motoryacht for families, which for the first time in this segment combines generous onboard spaces with a totally open aft lounge that practically “embraces” the sea. Alberto Mancini came up with an innovative concept in which, right from the very first sketches, the exterior communicates naturally with the interior. Seadeck 7 main saloonThis is the ‘Fun Island’, a space re-invented to offer an experience immersed in nature, but also a new way to spend time together on board. Because when the large windows are open, the interiors and exteriors become a single space, while the possibility of interacting with everyone, including those in the water, removes the last physical and social barrier. In other words, it’s a space for ‘fun’ in both real and symbolic senses.“We wanted to create a boat that puts maximum emphasis on the concept of openness and transparency, and that also represented a radical change in terms of the relationship with nature. With the introduction of the Fun Island, Seadeck is actually a floating island where owners can get away from their daily routine and live in total contact with the sea,” comments Alberto Mancini.Seadeck 6 main saloonIn their interior design concept for the Seadeck Series, Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez draw on the “conscious” philosophy that is the distinctive feature of their approach to architecture. Their collaboration with Azimut is explained by the sharing of precise values: the desire to work by subtraction to reveal the “heart” of a space where it’s easier to “feel good”, a redefinition of luxury based on wellbeing, and the choice of natural or recycled materials. As in the decision to use cork – an age-old Mediterranean material capable of spontaneous regeneration – to replace teak.Seadeck 6 “Seadeck is a new starting point for future generations. We wish, once again, to chart a course that will be an inspiration for the entire industry, so that the theme of respect for the environment is interpreted – as it is for Seadeck – with a concrete approach made up of investment, technological research, and the courage to introduce a new lifestyle that embraces the sea,” says Giovanna Vitelli, Chair of Azimut|Benetti Group. Seadeck 7Seadek 6, the first of three models in the Seadeck series will be presented at the Boot di Düsseldorf 2024; Seadeck 7 and Seadeck 8 will follow between 2024 and 2025.Azimut Yachts is an Azimut Benetti Group brand. With its Atlantis, Magellano Flybridge, S, Verve and Grande collections, Azimut offers the widest range of 10 to 40 meters.Credits: Azimut Yachts
38m Cocoon Delivered by Moonen
The Moonen Yachts has delivered the 37.8-meter yacht Cocoon after successful sea trials on the North Sea in January. Following speed runs and maneuvering trials on inland waters, the Moonen Yachts sea trial team took the yacht out during heavy mid-winter conditions for her endurance test.The Dutch North Sea lived up to its reputation as the ideal location to test ship systems under full load. The endurance trial concluded a five-day period during which Moonen Yachts put the systems, machinery, equipment and electronics to the test in actual operational conditions. After seeing how the yacht behaved in a heavy sea state, Cocoon’s Captain Kaela Bermeister was very happy with the yacht’s first real day at sea.Kaela Bermeister“We got to experience testing conditions, wind and swell on our way from the sea trial area towards Rotterdam,” says Kaela. “During these rocky conditions it’s a great chance to listen for any rattles and creaks that need improving, and generally just be on the lookout for those small details that need adapting before we take over.” Cocoon is the fourth hull built on the award-winning Moonen Martinique semi-custom platform. She has an exterior design by Dutch designer René van der Velden and naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design. A2B Marine Projects is heading up the owner team with Christian Poorte as the owner representative. The yacht can accommodate 12 guests on board and has a worldwide 2-year warranty, as a part of Moonen’s policy on all new builds. Moonen Yachts is a yacht builder based in the Netherlands, and its first yacht was built in 1964 under the original yard name of De Ruiter. In 1981, the yard was renamed Moonen Shipyards. It’s launching its first vessel under new ownership: Alhena. In 2017 Moonen Shipyards changed into Moonen Yachts. With the help of strong vision, innovative technology and new designers, Moonen is once again becoming the market leader in 30m to 50m luxury yachts.Credits: Moonen Yachts
New 72m Yacht Launched by CRN
A new full-custom CRN megayacht was launched at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard. The CRN 139 Project has been christened in a private ceremony.

The result is a fully bespoke 72-meter steel and aluminum yacht spanning six decks and accommodating up to 12 guests and 19 crew.The megayacht has been moved using motorized hydraulic lift trucks from her construction shed to the slipway ready for the pre-launch preparations. Handling a vessel with a dry weight of over 1,270 tons was a spectacular undertaking, made possible by CRN’s skilled specialists. This sublime fully custom megayacht vaunts extremely generous internal and external spaces, devised to offer the owner family a memorable on-board living experience in total privacy and comfort. Among the many standout features, the large full-height windows lend a softness to the lines.Besides the 72-meter CRN M/Y 139, the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona is currently constructing another three fully custom CRN yachts: the 67-meter CRN M/Y 143, the 85-meter CRN M/Y 144, and the 70-meter CRN M/Y 145.
