Feadship Has Launched the 55m Somnium
The newest member of the Feadship fleet is emerging from the yard in Aalsmeer this week for final finishing and sea trials. The 55m Somnium, which is Latin for dream, is designed to take three generations of family members on a series of memorable world cruises.The first pure custom superyacht for an experienced Northern European owner, Somnium was designed by Studio De Voogt with a cosy interior design from FM Architettura. The owner is a keen fan of fast cars, so Somnium’s aluminium hull looks the part and was chosen to enhance efficiency and ensure the shallow drafts required for exploring at will. The Somnium has vast outside decks, which include an exclusive lounge area on the foredeck, a pool with adjustable floor and counterflow on the aft deck and a jacuzzi island on the sun deck. Interior highlights include a gym, a full-beam owners’ stateroom with a balcony and four roomy guest suites on the lower deck.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
Yacht Harbour Choice: Three Yachts for Charter
Lana 107mPrice: 1,800,000 euro per week Just delivered last year, Benetti’s Lana is one of the most luxurious superyachts in the world. The 107m superyacht is available for luxury yacht charter through Imperial and is ready to explore the seven seas from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean and beyond. She has been built to discover all corners of the globe to fulfil her guest’s desires. She can accommodate up to twelve guests in eight staterooms and up to thirty-one crew to ensure a relaxed luxury charter experience.Planet Nine73.2mPrice: 650,000 euro per week Planet Nine, the latest addition to the Burgess charter fleet, is an ice-classed explorer yacht. Built by Admiral in 2018, she is capable of accommodating twelve guests in nine cabins, including a separate owner’s deck and a main deck VIP suite. Her hull is ice classed and comes with a superb specification, including her MD 600 Explorer helicopter, hangar and helipad. The 73m Planet Nine can satisfy all possible needs – a lift serves all five decks, with the owner enjoying an entire deck that creates a private 3,000-square-feet apartment with a full suite, dressing rooms, saloon, study and terrace. A VIP suite occupies much of the bridge deck, creating another private area, and the suite has its own lounge, which can be converted into a cabin. A forward observation lounge affords panoramic 180-degree views and floor-to-ceiling glass is a feature across the yacht. In the unlikely event that you need a distraction from the outside world, there’s a cinema below the observation room.K2 49.9m Price: from 270,000 euro per week Launched in 2021, Columbus Yachts K2 is a great addition to the Fraser Charter fleet.Featuring striking lines and a vertical bow, K2 offers exceptional exterior deck spaces.

Additionally, K2 comes equipped with a large array of water toys, including a large selection of incredibly fun towables. She reaches a top speed of 21 knots and is also available in Western Mediterranean. Credits: Burgess; Imperial; Fraser
Concept: Iddes Yachts’ Exploration Vessel Earth300 With 160 Scientists Onboard

Turkish Mazy Yachts Enters Into Steel Semi-Displacement Construction With the 92 DS
The Turkish yacht builder Mazu Yachts has announced its entry into steel construction with the 92 DS, the first of a new semi-displacement series that will be followed by a 112 DS and 132 DS model. “In my professional opinion, for reasons of safety, comfort and resale value, a displacement hull should be built of steel or aluminium,” says Halit Yukay, brand founder and head designer. “As with our carbon composite models, we wanted to offer the market something new, and if you look at the exterior lines, I think you’ll agree the 92 DS is certainly different!”The steel keel of the first semi-custom 92 DS has been laid, but Mazu is drawing on its experience of working in carbon composite for the superstructure to keep the weight down and the centre of gravity low. The crossover-style exterior profile is by Red Yacht Design. It features a raised pilothouse positioned forward in order to maximise the interior volumes. The vertical bow increases the waterline length. The owner’s suite is located in the widebody section of the main deck forward with a bathroom in the bow. The walk-around section of the superstructure houses the main salon, illuminated by full-height windows and the galley. Two twin-single guest cabins and a full-beam VIP suite are forward, and there are two crew cabins with a shared bathroom in the bow. The crew have their own service stairs, which is unusual for a yacht of this size . There is more lounging space, as well as dining facilities and the exterior helm station shaded by the hardtop on the fly deck. “Once again, I think we’ve created something amazing that will shake up the marketplace,” says Yukay. “The interior volumes and full-height windows make you feel like you’re on a yacht that is at least 10 meters longer.”The yacht will be powered by triple Volvo Penta IPS 1050 drives for a top speed of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots. This is the first time IPS propulsion has been installed on a steel-hulled yacht, requiring close collaboration with Volvo Penta and Profjord in Sweden for the engineering and naval architecture.The first 92 DS is due for delivery to her Turkish owner in the summer of 2022.Turkish Mazu Yachts has been designing and producing Open and Hard-Top Motor Yachts and Superyacht Tenders since 2011. The state of the art facility of 3000-square-metre indoor and 1000-square-metre outdoor space also accommodates carpentry shops and paint booths for creating an anti-dust environment.Credits: Mazu Yachts
