Mazu 82, a high-tech-yet-stylish creation of Mazu Yachts

MAZU 82, A HIGH TECH-YET-STYLISH CREATION IS EQUAL PARTS SUPERYACHT AND CRUISER

-The exterior profile of the 82-footer is characterised by the flush main deck with no steps and the angular lines of the all-glass deckhouse

-To create a chic yet warm and inviting feeling, walnut and leather has been used for the furniture

Built of a lightweight carbon composite, the Mazu 82 combines a clean profile, expansive decks and large hull windows with the outstanding performance, efficiency and handling. 

The celebrated Turkish designer Tanju Özelgin created the interior layout and design of the Mazu 82. Working closely with the shipyard, Özelgin optimised the generous volume and large hull windows, combining subtle textures, muted colours, and both direct and indirect light to create a vibe of understated elegance. 

The end result is an interior design that perfectly complements the edgy exterior styling of the Mazu 82, designed in-house by the shipyard’s founder, Halit Yukay: “The interior and the exterior should never be defined as two different aspects but should be seen as a whole as one is the extension of the other,” refers Yukay. “Both should create a coherent unity and reflect the main mood and feelings the designer intended.”

The exterior profile of the 82-footer is characterised by the flush main deck with no steps and the angular lines of the all-glass deckhouse. Wherever possible the shipyard has used one-piece glass panes, which meant increasing their thickness in accordance with class requirements. 

Hence the tempered and laminated windshield is over 22mm thick and with a PVB interlayer is literally bulletproof. The glass is also extra clear to eliminate distortion and reflections. Three openable ‘portholes’ at the front of the superstructure provide natural ventilation while under way. With its sliding aluminium roof, custom-made by OPAC in Italy, the main deck has an airy, loft-like feel.

On special request of the owner, Mazu modified the aft deck design to include terraced steps leading down to the swim platform. These steps function as built-in furniture so guests can sit down (they are wide enough to even lie down) and still converse with other guests. 

“Multifunctional design was very important for the owner,” continues Yukay. “In fact, the open foredeck has three different uses: as a sunbathing area, a dining area for 12 people, and a screen can be set up to turn it into an open-air cinema.”

Unique interior design 

Tanju Özelgin is a designer renowned for its ability to transmit meaning in design through subtle and abstract uses of form, symbol and material. He is widely recognised for his distinct style that is contemporary and abstract yet deeply aware of the fundamentals of human nature and environment.  

These same signature qualities distinguish the interior design aboard the new Mazu 82. 

“The main challenge with yacht interiors is that the space mostly never stands still and is constantly surrounded by water, says the Turkish designer, who aimed to create an onboard ambience more in tune with land-based architecture. “This aspect will direct your decisions regarding which materials to use, the weight and scale of every piece of furniture, and whether or not the furniture is anchored to the decks or built-in.” 

A major challenge for all yacht designers and builders is to draw in as much natural light as possible into the interior. In this regard, the Mazu 82 boasts very large deckhouse windows and strip glazing in the hull. In particular, the sliding sunroof, custom-made by OPAC in Italy, and 9-sqm windshield of ultra-clear laminated and tempered glass, lend the interior an airy, loft-like feel. 

“The space has to be as compact and light as possible without losing the illusion of feeling at home or in a cosy hotel,” says the interior designer. “This was one of our key aspects during the design phase of the yacht: to create a space that feels more as if you were in your own house with all the familiarity and comfort that comes with it.” 

Artificial lighting is just as important as natural illumination and has to be both functional and atmospheric. For this reason, a bespoke lighting system was developed for the Mazu 82.

“Lighting is an important tool for the designer to create an atmosphere and mood, which further improves the design of the space,” says Özelgin. “It is an extension of the feelings the designer wants to express and should always be considered as an reflection of the overall design.”

To create a chic yet warm and inviting feeling, walnut and leather has been used for the furniture – exclusively built by Mazu – while the walls are decorated with metallic finishes and teak paneling that has been textured and stained grey. The textiles and carpets were specially designed for the boat, as were the doors made of bronzed tempered glass and the stainless steel hardware that has been treated using thin-film deposit (PVD) techniques in the same bronze hue. 

“The chosen materials are as light as possible and the textures give a sense of spaciousness with a touch of warmth”  – says Özelgin.

The yacht is fitted with a state-of-the-art audio system (JL Audio for the exterior and Dali for the interior), which meant that close attention was paid to noise damping. Leather and Alcantara cladding and upholstery throughout help to mute unwanted sound. 

The wet surfaces are of a special synthetic material that has a soft leather-like finish, while the bathroom faucets and accessories are by luxury hardware brand Gessi. The high-end galley equipment was supplied by Gaggenau.

Invictus Yacht, debutto mondiale per la nuova GT 320 Atelier

Debutto mondiale per la GT 320 Atelier al Boot Dusseldorf 2020-Prima mondiale al salone tedesco per la nuova GT 320 Atelier, perfetto esempio della capacità di personalizzazione dell’Atelier Invictus-L’Atelier Invictus guidail clienteattraverso un laboratorio virtuale in cui si progetta la barca con inserti materici individuali e dotazioni dedicate-Per la prima volta al Boot anche la CX270 e la GT280S, entrambe con motorizzazione fuoribordo-Due gli stand Invictus: Hall4 Stand B39 e Hall 5 Stand B22

Invictus Yacht si prepara al Boot di Dusseldorf(18-26 Gennaio 2020) con una prima mondiale che pone in primo piano la capacità del cantiere italiano di personalizzare ogni modello a un livello superiore. La GT 320 Atelier infatti è una versione speciale di uno dei modelli iconici di Invictus: l’armatore ha infatti richiesto una particolare ed elegante combinazione di colori, con lo scafo nero lucido e fiancate Personal White, mentre per le tappezzerie del pozzetto la scelta è ricaduta sull’allestimento Eclipse, basato anch’esso sul contrasto di similpelle nera e panna con schienali in tessuto avorio che creano un effetto di lino naturale.

La prua semirovescia, tratto stilistico distintivo della gamma, è stata elaborata per conferire un ulteriore senso di eleganza. A enfatizzare questo tratto il pulpitoa sezione ovale che corre lungo tutta la lunghezza della barca, sottolineando il bordo superiore fino a incontrare la spiaggetta poppiera.

Il layout di coperta prevede l’accesso in pozzetto tramite la spiaggetta di poppa, passando a sinistra del grande prendisole, che può essere ulteriormente esteso grazie alla trasformazione del divanetto a proravia. A centro pozzetto la dinette a L è servita da un tavolo e si affaccia su un mobile stand-up che accoglie una vera e propria “cucina outdoor” dotata di frigorifero, ice maker, grill e lavandino. A mantenere l’eleganza tipica di Invictus, il mobile èdotato di ante che nascondono tutte le attrezzature.

Il pozzetto può essere protetto grazie a un tendalino a scomparsa fornito di serie; tra gli optional dell’Invictus GT 320 spicca poi un hardtop in carbonio che può estendere la proiezione d’ombra tramite un tessuto traforato traspirante tensionato da pali in carbonio.

Le due poltrone per pilota e copilota, separate da un elemento portabottiglie, valorizzano la postazione di guida. A prua, il grande prendisole è dotato di poggiatesta che giacciono sulla tuga creando posizioni di relax che ricordano vere e proprie chaise longue: una composizione articolata che arricchisce notevolmente l’area di prua e include anche i diffusori audio e i portabicchieri.

L’attenzione ai dettagli si unisce, a bordo dell’Invictus GT 320, a quella per le prestazioni. Il cantiere ha infatti previsto un ampio range di motorizzazioni entrofuoribordo benzina o diesel (sia singole che doppie), fino a una potenza massima di 860 cavalli.

L’Atelier Invictus

Un alto livello di finitura e cura del dettaglio, quello garantito dall’Atelier Invictus, comune a tutti i modelli in produzione e cheoffrono già numerose varianti di colore, dotazioni e configurazioni, lasciando notevole libertà di scelta, permettendo al cliente di configurare la barca in base ai propri gusti e alle proprie esigenze. In piùl’Atelier Invictus mettea disposizione dei propri clienti una rete di artigiani specializzati e fornitori altamente qualificati. Il cliente è così accudito fin dalle prime fasi dell’acquisto e guidato attraverso un vero e proprio laboratorio virtuale in cui si progetta la barca con inserti materici individuali e dotazioni dedicate. La barca di serie diventa così custom, capace di esprimere la personalità, lo stile e i gusti dell’armatore.

Doppio debutto tedesco con la CX270 e la GT280S

Al salone tedesco, per la prima volta dopo il loro debutto all’ultimo Cannes Yachting Festival, saranno presenti anche la CX270 e la GT280S. La prima spicca per i suoispazi interni, molto più ampi se comparati ai concorrenti di pari misura, pur mantenendo al contempo un profilo sportivo grazie all’equilibrio tra disegno della carena e profilo della tuga. La coperta risulta pulita, grazie alla scelta di optare per un’ancora a scomparsa, evitando dunque la presenza di elementi esterni ingombranti.

L’Invictus CX270 ha un carattere sportivo, evidenziato dai due motori fuoribordo da 220 cavalli ciascuno, che si lega con forza alla grande attenzione ai dettagli e a soluzioni che puntano a ottenere il massimo comfort a bordo. L’ergonomia tipica della serie CX è evidenziata dall’attento studio della timoneria a sviluppo verticale.

L’Invictus GT280S è invece la configurazione fuoribordo di uno dei modelli di maggiore successo del cantiere italiano. Grazie a due motori fuoribordo per una potenza complessiva di 500 cavalli, è in grado di raggiungere prestazioni di alto livello, che si uniscono alla caratteristica prua semirovescia e alla grande vivibilità.

Gli altri modelli espostiA confermare l’importanza del Bootper il cantiere italiano, alla manifestazione tedesca saranno esposti anche la GT370, la CX250, l’SX280 e l’FX200.

November 16, 2019 Leave a comment

Ref. 6300A-010

Si tratta del primo e unico Grandmaster Chime in acciaio, un metallo che la manifattura ginevrina utilizza raramente nelle sue collezioni e ancor meno quando sono presenti grandi complicazioni.

Si tratta dell’orologio da polso Patek Philippe più complicato, con ben 20 complicazioni, tra cui cinque funzioni sonore, due delle quali brevettate in esclusiva mondiale: la suoneria (sveglia) che suona l’ora preselezionata e la ripetizione della data che suona il giorno del calendario a volontà.

Cranchi E26 Classic, superyacht tender di Christian Grande per Cantiere Nautico Cranchi

CRANCHI E26 CLASSIC, IL SUPERYACHT TENDER SECONDO CHRISTIAN GRANDE

Suggestioni vintage ed essenzialità contemporanea

Continua la collaborazione tra Christian Grande, nome di punta dello yacht design internazionale e lo storico Cantiere Nautico Cranchi.

Da questo connubio è nato l’E26 Classic, un daycruiser di 7,85 metri, ideale anche per un utilizzo come superyacht tender, che spicca per ilsuo carattere sportivo unito con uno stile unico e sofisticato, inperfetto equilibrio tra suggestioni vintage ed essenzialitàcontemporanea.

 

“L’E26 Classic nasce da una rilettura degli stilemi del motoscafo classico”, spiega Christian Grande. “Una tipologia che ha scritto la storia della nautica da diporto fin dagli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta, grazie a un’utenza raffinata e signorile che frequentava le località marittime del bel vivere, senza dimenticare i grandi laghi. Le dimensioni e le prestazioni di queste barche permettevano infatti sia rapidi trasferimenti da sponda a sponda che piacevoli giornate da trascorrere a bordo”.

 

Christian Grande ha reinterpretato il tema della tradizione introducendo alcuni segni distintivi e spiccatamente contemporanei, come il dritto di prua verticale e il taglio netto delle finestrature laterali, che danno slancio longitudinale al Cranchi E26 Classic e rappresentano l’unico segno di murata. La linea priva di aggettivazioni superflue rivela, per contrasto, interni sorprendentemente ricchi, curati nelle finiture e caratterizzati dal contrasto tra materiali lucidi ed opachi, rigidi e morbidi, come su un’automobile di lusso.

Il ponte di prua in teak rievoca il retaggio classico delle barche in legno e fa da contrappunto visivo alla plancetta di poppa anch’essa ricoperta in teak. Il grande prendisole a poppa copre il vano motore in cui trova alloggiamento anche un tendalino a scomparsa che all’occorrenza può garantire ombra al pozzetto.

La dinette a centro barca è servita da una seduta a L che dà continuità al prendisole di poppa e da due sedili pivotanti che si possono rivolgereverso prua durante la navigazione e verso poppa nei momenti diconvivialità. Ad accentuare il carattere sportivo dell’E26 Classic contribuisce il parabrezza avvolgente e a tutto baglio che offre protezione al pilota e a chi lo affianca.

Tramite un’apertura posizionata al centro del parabrezza si può comodamente accedere al ponte di prua, sotto il quale sono state ricavate una cabina e un vano toilette, così assicurare una comoda permanenza a bordo durante l’intera giornata e, volendo, anche di notte.

“Un simile approccio nell’allestimento è tipico dei grandi yacht, a cuil’E26 Classic strizza l’occhio”, conclude Christian Grande. “Per caratteristiche, può infatti anche esserne il perfetto tender”.

Boring Company, primo tunnel sotterraneo a Los Angeles

May 13, 2018 Leave a comment

 

Il primo tunnel della Boring Company sotto Los Angeles è quasi pronto. Il magnate posta su Twitter un’immagine dei primi 150 metri della rete cittadina per le auto che dovrebbe decongestionare la metropoli californiana. Il traforo correrà parallelo all’Intestate 405.

Si tratta della prima immagine del tunnel sotterraneo scavato a Los Angeles dalla Boring Company, una delle società che fanno riferimento al vulcanico Elon Musk. A twittarla è stato lo stesso imprenditore delle auto elettriche Tesla e dei razzi riutilizzabili SpaceX. Dallo scorso mese di agosto il gruppo sta sperimentando una serie di tecnologie per dare prima o poi corpo al progetto anticipato mesi fa attraverso un affascinante video: una sorta di rete metropolitana superveloce sotterranea riservata alle automobili. Queste dovrebbero scendere tramite dei vagoni-montacarichi in un certo punto della città e sfrecciare nel sottosuolo per poi riemergere alla piazzola-fermata preferita. Decongestionando così le metropoli.

Al solito, più i progetti su cui Musk mette le mani paiono avveniristici più le sperimentazioni iniziano con rapidità. Sabato scorso il magnate ha condiviso infatti il primo scatto del tunnel di Los Angeles spiegando che vede il tunnel come un traforo parallelo all’autostrada Interstate 405 fino all’incrocio con la 101, con delle rampe di uscita “ogni miglio o quasi”.

Musk ha fornito anche altre delucidazioni su Instagram: il sistema “funzionerà come una superstrada veloce, dove i carrelli elettrici saranno in grado di trasportare veicoli e le persone viaggeranno in capsule sull’arteria principale con una velocità che raggiunge fino alle 150 miglia orarie, mentre i carrelli utilizzeranno tunnel laterali per uscire”. Al momento il tunnel è lungo appena 150 metri ma secondo i tweet con cui ha risposto alle curiosità dei follower dovrebbe toccare i tre o quattro chilometri nel giro di altrettanti mesi e appunto concludersi, secondo i piani, entro un anno.

Intanto i test vanno avanti anche altrove. E anche su altri fronti. Sempre la scorsa settimana il Maryland ha concesso alla stessa Boring Company il permesso di scavare un altro tunnel, stavolta da dieci miglia, fra i confini della città di Baltimora e la Route 175 dello Stato. Dovrebbe trattarsi del primo troncone di un tunnel più lungo, da 35 miglia, che colleghi Baltimora a Washington D.C. Non sembra però legarsi al progetto stradale: stavolta sarebbero lavori per il treno superveloce Hyperloop.

– The company’s new shipyard is based in Groot-Ammers and counts on a 2000 m2 footprint on an impressive 20000 m2 waterfront plot
– A “boutique style” production for the happy few that merges extreme quality and obsession to detail
– Current range consists of two models Z44 and Z55 developed by Mulder Design and  Cor D. Rover
– Timeless, recognizable exterior design and custom made interiors
– New models to be unveiled during 2018
– Zeelander Yachts reported a +40% increase in new motoryacht sales in 2017 and has a solid order book for 2018
Best New Powerboat in 35 feet and over category award has been achieved at the 2017 Newport International Boat Show for the Z55’s outstanding quality, top-tier design and superb seagoing skills.
Zeelander Yachts is delighted to report that the 2017 has been a successful year in the Dutch shipyard’s history. The yard reports a 40% increase in new yacht sales last year and has a healthy order book for 2018.

We had an amazing year filled with events, premieres, awards and, most importantly, sales”, said Leonardo van den Berg, Commercial Director at Zeelander Yachts. “Even being a boutique style production oriented yard – half of the boats were sold through partners/brokers. Also there was much movement in the Zeelander 44 market with several boats changing hands/owners. One of the most important of our achievement is the fact that – in January 2017 – we’ve opened our new yard in Groot-Ammers, where we have already built four Zeelander Z55s. Now are working on new, bigger projects that are about to hit the market for 2018 and 2019”.
Founded in 2002, the company specializes on production of high-end motoryachts that marry form and function to efficient performance with the highest possible standard. The current range includes two models, Z44 and flagship Z55. The Z44 is an instantly-recognizable lobster-style cruiser with a modern twist and powerful motor, capable of reaching 35 knots, panoramic views and spacious interior with one or two cabins. The Z55is the ideal step-up from the 44-feet model, offering even roomier cockpit and three cabins. After she’s been presented in 2017, Zeelander’s largest model to date – immediately received strong demand from owners and acclaims from expert luxury yachting community.
An example? The Best New Powerboat in 35 feet and over category award has been achieved at the 2017 Newport International Boat Show for the Z55’s outstanding quality, top-tier design and superb seagoing skills.

The new facilities, which are fully owned by Zeelander Yachts, are world-class indeed. Craftsmen from all the different disciplines involved in building a premium Zeelandermotoryacht – from engineering to construction, from joinery to metalwork – have access to the very latest equipment in order to make the most of their timeless skills.
Our Groot-Ammers yard has a 2000 m2 footprint on an impressive 20000 m2 waterfront plot”, comments Leonardo van den Berg. “We can build up to three boats at a time and have a six boat per year total capacity, based on the Z55. We do our own design together with renowned Cor D. Rover, detail engineering, sales and marketing.”
Overall Zeelander Yachts have built and sold over 30 yachts, most of them on the US market. But there’s growing interest in these elegant boats in other areas of the world.
Leonardo van den Berg confirmed: “At this point the USA is still our biggest market. However, we are very active in Europe too with a focus on the French Côte d’Azur, and we had strong results at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September”.
Zeelander Yachts has aspiring plans for the year 2018. First, the company plans to further grow brand awareness in Europe and the Americas and create an exclusive community for the owners. Moreover, the shipyard’s expertise extends far beyond 55-feet yachts and this year it projects to unveil a couple of new larger models. More details will be released later.

Mazu Yachts, double debut at Monaco Yacht Show 2017

– Two superyacht tenders on display at Quai Jarlan and new Tenders Area
– 38 soft top, launched last June, now delivered in South of France
– 42 walk-around, to be delivered early August

Turkish boutique yacht designer and builder Mazu Yachts confirms two new superyacht tenders to be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 2017 (September 27-30, 2017).

Mazu Yachts will show two new “sexy” models: 38 soft top and 42 walk-around. Both are equally perfect overnight cruisers or superyacht tenders thanks to yard’s ability in customization of style, layout and decor.

MAZU 38 SOFT TOP
All-new Mazu 11.9m/38′ soft top has been delivered to his lucky owner in Saint Tropez this July 2017.

Designed by Halit Yukay, the yacht has been sold to a European client. He desired to achieve a real “military look” able to combine latest luxury superyacht tender amenities and trendy elegance.

The owner of Mazu 38 soft top is an “Armani style enthusiast”. The yard so decided to use as many different textures of leathers and fabrics as possible – all from Foglizzo and a number of mirrors to give the maximum depth interiors perception, like in a loft condo.

Halit Yukay also designed a fantastic indoors lighting mood from the Italian supplier Cantalupi to enhance Mazu 38 dramatic feeling. New Mazu 38 soft top is so equipped with two Volvo Penta IPS 400 engines and the boat claim to reach a top speed of 34 knots.

MAZU 42 WALK-AROUND
The largest Mazu’s model to be shown, the new 42 walk-around, to be delivered early August 2017, has an overall length of 11.99 meters and a maximum beam of 3.7 meters. The center console, perfectly protected by a real modern superstructure, leaves room for two ample lateral walk-arounds. The yacht has a freeboard that is high enough to allow safety movement on deck even while at sea in combination with sportive profile with and military twist overtones.

On-deck comfort is assured by the ample sun bathing area near the stern, while forward the cockpit is complete with a V-shaped settee and a second settee forward of the  console. The size of the aft platform has allowed the yard to create a true seaside terrace, ideal not only  while  at  anchor  but  also  when  moored  to  the  jetty,  facilitating  coming  aboard and going ashore. The presence of a mobile kitchen with Gaggenau appliances ensures leisurely and pleasurable times when at anchor.

Two 435 hp Volvo Penta IPS 600 give the Mazu 42 walk-around a top speed of 47 knots, with a cruising speed of 32 knots.

Numarine 105 HT, first class experience of Numarine Yachts

October 9, 2017 Leave a comment

The model is an exceptional sport yacht able to emphasize all the great Numarine attributes, like an innovative exterior design, an efficient and seaworthy hull, great exterior living spaces and spacious interiors, all coupled with a very robust but weight-efficient construction thanks to vacuum-infusion technology and state of the art noise, vibration and harshness suppression.
The custom luxurious finishes and hand selected high end materials used throughout the Numarine 105 HT offer an absolutely “first class” experience, while the impressive exterior areas provide plenty of gracious and refined alfresco space for entertaining guests.
105 HT is drawn by Numarine’s designer Can Yalman, in charge of the concept, lines and interiors, while Umberto Tagliavini is the naval architect.
Key design attributes deliver the functionality, comfort and speed synonymous with the Numarine “mantra”, coupled with striking aesthetics and exceptional use of space for a motor-yacht that can do it all and in style.

The design consideration extends from the cleverly appointed flybridge – a feature that brings the “best of both worlds” to this extravagant hardtop model – to the abundance of outside lounging areas, the immense interior lounge and dining space, the lavish galley and cabin accommodation: all are bathed in natural light, further enhancing the plentiful feeling of space.
Accommodation is comprised of three fully en-suite guest cabins and the spacious full beam master cabin, lavishly appointed with a dressing table, sofa, a large bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower and twin basins.
Can Yalman says: “Numarine 105HT is the foremost expression of the styling language that has started with the 78HT. The Hard Top design language has the gill shaped glass elements in the superstructure. Previously we have used this in the ceiling panels but in the 105HT this has been taken to the extreme and  the complete side glass has this gilled, scaled structure emphasizing the creature aesthetic and power within. Taking stylistic language of the transportation industry, mainly the supercars, we tried to emulate the power, speed and luxury feel of an ultimate movement machine to a super-yacht.  The elegance of motion is what we tried to achieve in the design of the Numarine 105HT”.
Designed to navigate in any sea state and powered with twin 1,925 hp Caterpillar C32s, the 105HT is capable of a top speed 30 knots and cruises at around 26 knots. Numarine uses advanced composite construction, vacuum assisted infusion techniques, PVC foam, and EL vinylester resin for sturdy and lightweight  hulls.

Umberto Tagliavini adds:”I have collaborated with the Numarine yard since their beginning and their first yacht. And just as with all Numarine designs, the primary aim when we designed the new  105 HT was to create a high performance hull shape with maximum possible comfort, even when sea conditions are not ideal. Thanks to Numarine’s technology – a given for the yard – we managed to achieve a displacement that gives us high speeds with a relatively smaller propulsion system: the two 1400kW CAT engines give the 105 HT a top speed of over 31 knots.
The chined hull forward has a pronounced V, letting the bow pierce the waves relatively easily, giving the yacht a very comfortable ride. Numarine’s experience made my work easier, resulting in a high performance hull. CFD simulations were of great help in finalizing the design, but the original lines were developed based on the yard’s experience with their previous yachts. To improve the hull, obviously with the help of the yard, I have always taken out the yachts for trails in rough conditions to better understand how to improve handling in difficult conditions
”.
The Numarine 105 HT joins a class of performance motor-yachts that sets the industry trends of today and will become an industry reference model for the future.
Antonio Caviglia, Numarine Sales & Marketing Director refers: “This double achievement – in less than one year  – with the delivery of two 105HTs confirms our ability to thoroughly engineer a new project and deliver it on-time and built to the demanding Numarine standard. The new 105HT highlights the following key values: The Numarine design philosophy penned by Can Yalman and its continuous evolution; the light-weight yet strong foam core vacuum infusion construction technology that allows this 33m yacht to reach 31knots of top speed with just twin CAT C32 Acerts with 1925hp each and permits us to provide an industry-leading 10-year Structural Warranty; the the traditional Numarine seaworthiness derived from the great hulls penned by Umberto Tagliavini; the Numarine continuous pursuit of greater on board comfort with noise, vibration and harshness reduction solutions developed together with Silent Line that make this yacht one of the quietest and most-vibration free in its category. Price wise, Numarine continues to provide a great value with the new 105HT, that at a very interesting Euro 6,9 million base price presents a turn-key product with all the needed equipment already standard and a very short extras list, resulting in a very attractive price advantage when compared to the competition.  And this of course includes the customization of the interiors to suit the tastes of the Client, who can make all of his or her interior choices and layout customizations together with our Internal Architect or with the input of his personal Architect working together with our Team”.
