TECHNOHULL SEA DNA 999, performance and high luxury at 90 knots

May 16, 2017 Leave a comment

– The 10.3 meter RIB is available with several different layouts
– With its eight propulsion options, the RIB can reach a top speed of 90 knots(*)
– Never so easy to extreme commuting from a superyacht or a private island 
– Only two hours to cross from Athens to Mykonos next summer!

Versatility, performance and an ever so close attention paid to detailing and materials. These are the concepts that are at the basis of all the RIBs produced by the Greek Technohull shipyard and are all perfectly integrated in their best  selling model, the seaDNS999G5 that can reach a top speed of 90 knots(*) with exceptional safety – another obsession guiding the entire Technohull team.

These concepts are part of the DNA of the Greek yard from Alimos, one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Athens. These concepts have permitted – since the birth of the yard in 2005 – to produce a series of models that are so versatile that they are ideal both as luxury tenders for large yachts or for elegant medium range cruising.

The infusion built hull, made of epoxy resins and multi-directional fibers, ensures an extremely solid platform for the standard ORCA Penel Flippo 1670 tubes.

All phases of construction take place in-house, within the yard’s premises and are performed by highly specialized technicians following rigid international standards.


With a length of 10.3 meters and a beam of 2.8, the seaDNA999G5 can adapt to a wide range of owners. This is easily seen in the three versions of the bow area that the yard offers.

Open: Here we have a V-shaped settee that conceals a spacious storage area, while the raised step at the peak considerably facilitates embarking and disembarking, making this version ideal as a tender for large yachts.

Delta: Perfect for relaxing daily use and enjoyable anchorages immersed in nature thanks to the sun-bathing area that covers the entire bow area.

Cabin: Dedicated to those who want to enjoy short cruises, this layout is characterized by a cabin with a double bed and an enclosed bathroom. Light and air are assured by the large companionway.

The ergonomic center console is equipped with two wrap-around shock-absorbing seats, perfect for safe and controlled steering even in rough seas. The instrument panel includes a “Smart Central Consol Touchscreen”. The optional mobile kitchen with sink and burner is located aft of the console seats. A real “toy for boys”!

While the yard chooses to offer three versions of the bow area, astern they offer four!

Three of the four versions are for the outboard motor propulsion systems and let the owner chose between an elongated divan, a U-shaped settee, or a recessed sun-deck.

In all three versions the two bathing platforms with boarding ladders next to the motors are perfect for afternoons at anchor and refreshing showers.

The yard’s inboard propulsion option includes an elongated divan and an extra-large sun-bathing area above the engine room. A classic solution whose strength is its convenience.

As we stated above, performance and handling are among the fundamental strengths of the Alimos’ yard. Owners may choose from a wide range of propulsion systems for the seaDNA999G5 to take full advantage of the deep-V hull that guarantees an easy ride over the waves and perfect control even when making maneuvers at high speed.

The outboard version offers four horsepower options (2x250hp, 2x300hp, 2x350hp, 2x400hp) that ensure astounding performance, from a top speed of 68 knots for the base version (with a cruising speed of 50 knots) to a top speed of 90 knots (70 cruising) with the twin 400hp option.

The inboard version includes two options: a single engine with either 220 or 370hp or twin engines of 265hp each. The seaDNA99G5 has a top speed of 63 knots depending on the configuration chosen.

(*) Top speed indications are based on our factory testing program. Boat speed may vary depending on weight, fuel load, water conditions, wind, engine package, engine tuning, propellers, number of passengers and numerous other factors beyond our control.

Performance and high efficiency make this the ideal RIB for those who want to take the weekend off and not worry about the distance to cover. Some examples? With the twin 400hp outboard option, it will only take two hours to cross from Athens to Mykonos Island, less than the time it often takes us just to get to the sea for a weekend. In the same two hours you can go from the Italian Argentario Peninsula to Porto Cervo in Sardinia, in the heart of the Costa Smeralda. And the mere twenty minutes from Naples to Capri to enjoy a glamorous evening on the splendid island?

Philippe Briand has designed the hull, underwater appendages, rig, sail plan and main characteristics of this modern 70 metre ketch. He is the main naval architect of the project.
All judges were impressed with the naval architecture, sailing ability, supreme comfort, exceptional division of internal volumes and her technical innovations.

The 70 metre superyacht Sybaris by Perini Navi has been proclaimed ‘Best Sailing Yacht of 2017’ in both the 40-metres-plus category and overall at this year’s prestigious World Superyacht Awards. The official ceremony was held on 13 May in Florence, Italy.
Philippe Briand has designed the hull, underwater appendages, rig, sail plan and main characteristics of this modern 70 metre ketch. He is the main naval architect of the project.
The Owner of Sybaris – Mr Bill Duker referred: “Philippe Briand was selected to be the naval architect for Sybaris because he was seen 5 years ago as the person who would be regarded as the best naval architect today. The selection of Sybaris as the best sailing yacht in the 40-metres-plus category and the sailing yacht overall winner proves we were correct.
The Jury panel commented their decision: “Sybaris not only impressed the judges with its sailing ability – particularly in light airs when many yachts of this size resort to mechanical power – but also in the yacht’s supreme comfort and optimum division of internal volume that entirely suits the owner’s needs. Some technical innovations have already been mentioned, but there are more in that the sail plan, rig and underwater appendages were subjected to extensive CFD testing, which allowed detailed optimization of rig, hull shape and appendages. Beautiful, capable, comfortable, and technically advanced this is a yacht that was considered supreme for its purpose”.
The streamlined and contemporary superstructure is topped with an impressive flying bridge that is 18m in length; the largest of any sailing yacht afloat. At 850 gross tonnes, Sybaris has wide-open and well-lit interior spaces with an innovative layout and smart storage solutions. The exterior design is by Perini Navi design office and the sophisticated interior design is by PH Design the Miami-based studio’s first yacht project.
Sybaris has a brand new power management designed by Perini Navi as are the innovative self-driven captive winches.
Philippe Briand said: “I enjoyed being part of this Design team and working with its highly talented members as Franco Romani of Perini Navi design office, PH Design, the shipyard Perini Navi and Bill Duker, the owner of Sybaris who brought this team together”.
Sybaris was also shortlisted as a finalist in six categories of the ShowBoats Design Awards, held in Kitzbühel in February 2017. She went on to take home more trophies than any other superyacht, including titles for Best Interior Layout & Design and Best Lighting Design, as well as the award for Newcomer of the Year, presented to PH Design.

YNAP, first mover nel mondo secondo Federico Marchetti

April 26, 2017 Leave a comment

Federico Marchetti-w900-h900

Federico Marchetti è soddisfatto del lavoro svolto nel primo trimestre, si dice entusiasta della partnership siglata con il gruppo Alabbar per il Medio Oriente e soprattutto non ha paura della concorrenza di gruppi più “giovani” come Farfetch. «Abbiamo il vantaggio competitivo nell’essere first mover», ha affermato l’a.d. di Yoox Net-à-Porter a margine dell’assemblea dei soci.

Nessun timore, dunque, verso la piattaforma fondata da Josè Neves, che si è da poco assicurata la collaborazione di Natalie Massenet, fondatrice di Net-à-Porter e che gode di grande attenzione da parte di media e analisti.

«La concorrenza alla fine fa bene se leale, abbiamo tanti piccoli competitor e non solo Farfetch, che comunque registra un fatturato pari a un decimo del nostro», ha minimizzato Marchetti.

L’imprenditore ha preferito parlare del suo gruppo, fondato nel 2000, e dei nuovi progetti in fase di lancio. «Sono molto soddisfatto del lavoro svolto nel primo trimestre dalle 4.128 persone che ogni giorno pensano a far crescere questa azienda» ha sottolineato, senza fornire indicazioni concrete sui risultati, che saranno pubblicati il 3 maggio.

Il ceo di Ynap ha ricordato che il gruppo ha messo in cantiere un aggressivo piano di espansione in Medio Oriente, «mercato che insieme all’Asia – ha precisato – sarà a forte crescita».

Proprio nel Middle East Ynap può contare sull’alleanza con il gruppo Alabbar, proprietario del Dubai Mall. «Mohamed Alabbar – ha osservato Marchetti – è l’imprenditore più innovativo dell’area. Questa è la partnership con la persona giusta nel posto giusto».

Sempre a margine dell’assemblea dei soci, Marchetti ha confermato l’intenzione di lanciare la private label del gruppo entro fine 2017: «Siamo un retailer, quindi vogliamo accontentare i nostri clienti. Se non trovano qualcosa, vogliamo colmare il gap. Si tratterà sempre di un complemento dell’assortimento, non sarà mai il nostro core business. Non si connota come una vera collezione, non ci mettiamo a fare gli stilisti. Sarà presente su Yoox e The Outnet».

Marchetti ha escluso operazioni di acquisizioni di siti o anche il lancio di nuovi prodotti al di fuori del perimetro di moda e design. «Abbiamo fatto di recente un’operazione che ci posiziona come leader mondiale, con un fatturato da quasi 2 miliardi di dollari» ha fatto notare, alludendo all’integrazione tra Yoox e Net-a-Porter.

V46 IPS, first model of the new IPS line by Vicem Yachts

April 1, 2017 Leave a comment

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Vicem Yachts is proud to announce the successful world premier of the V46 IPS – the very first model of the new Vicem IPS line – at the Palm Beach International Boat Show (March 23 – 26, 2017). 

This model is the first Vicem built in fiberglass/epoxy, in this size. Light and sturdy, the Vicem 46 IPS, with a beam of 14′,9”, has sufficient interior volume to allow the owner to choose between spacious two and three cabin designs. The yacht’s dimensions boast a LOA of 14.02m (46′) and a draft of 0.70m (2’4′)’ with a displacement of 18,000kg (39,683lbs.) at full load.

This yacht – designed by Vicem’s in-house design team – has a handsome classic look and provides a quiet, smooth ride, thanks to Vicem’s renowned superior design and construction techniques. The Vicem 46 IPS combines elegant looks with sportive lines and technology. With excellent use of exterior and interior design, the Vicem 46’ stands out from other yachts of the same length.

The primary aim when designing the 46 IPS was to create comfortable and luminous spaces. When coming aboard, you enter first into the bar zone with, a comfortable L-shaped settee. The lounge and cockpit are separated by a sliding door: when open there is no longer any separation and a single large living space has been created.

The lounge area offers comfortable seating to fully enjoy the entertainment systems, while the large side windows and front windshield provide excellent visibility and lots of daylight. For maximum comfort when under way, the helmsman has an ergonomic chair and the station is complete with up-to-date electronic instruments.

The importance of a side door to the lounge shouldn’t be underestimated as it considerably eases movement around the vessel, especially when mooring.

The interiors, all air conditioned, are quite spacious – this is thanks to the Volvo Penta IPS engines that allow for a smaller engine room – with obvious advantages for livability.

The standard layout for the sleeping area foresees two spacious double berth cabins and a functional open space galley.
The owner’s cabin has a queen size bed, ample storage space, an entertainment system and a private bathroom complete with shower. Through-hull windows provide excellent natural lighting.
The guest cabin is equipped with two single berths that can be joined to make a single queen-size bed, while the guest bathroom can also be used as a day-head.
The galley (down) is fully equipped for long cruising and comes with two electric burners, a microwave oven and ample storage space.

The flybridge version hosts a bar area with electric BBQ and refrigerator, in addition to the lounge area and the captain’s seat.

Powered by two Volvo Penta IPS 600 engines (2 x 435 HP provide 320kW @ 3,500rpm), the Vicem 46 IPS is easy to drive thanks to the extremely reliable Volvo Penta control system and the V-Type hard chine hull. Top speed is close to 30 knots, with a cruising speed of 26 knots.

With the joystick and dynamic stability system, the owner will be able to easily maneuver the yacht in tight spaces, and also leave the helm while the yacht maintains her desired position.

During her first sea trails, what most impressed was the incredible silence on board: at 25 knots, only 62 decibels were recorded.

Les Mirages, nuove fragranze orientali unisex da Prada Olfactories

March 24, 2017 Leave a comment

Prada La promenademag

Les Mirages raffigura quattro nuove aggiunte unisex all’iconica collezione Prada Olfactories, una serie di potenti fusioni per l’indomito spirito Prada.

Les Mirages si fonda sulla natura della comunità, sulle differenze costruite, sull’orientalismo/occidentalismo e sul viaggio futuristico.
Miuccia Prada e la profumiera Daniela Andrier reinventano l’arte della fragranza come un atlante globale: ogni formula rappresenta una puntina su una mappa immaginaria. Reinterpretano i codici delle fragranze orientali in quattro intensi Olfactories.

Miracle of The Rose

Una rosa in una corona di spine. Una sensazione di passaggio attraverso varie stanze labirintiche, ognuna caratterizzata da una fragranza diversa. Una profonda sensazione architettonica, un volume fisico di pelle, legno di agar e tabacco, livelli che nascono da decenni, secoli. Ma nelle vicinanze, forse in una stanza adiacente, forse trasportate nell’aria turbolenta da qualcuno di passaggio, le delicate ma potenti note di assoluta di rosa e patchouli si ritrovano in primo piano. Miracle of the Rose circonda l’elegante fiore con una profondità quasi imperscrutabile.

Soleil au Zénith

Un sovraccarico di sensazioni. La scoperta di varie culture attraverso l’avvicinamento. Effetto al rallentatore nell’atmosfera tangibile e nella luce soffusa tramite il luccicante calore. Soleil au Zenith combina in modo semplice il dolce ylang ylang e la pesca con essenze sofisticate di legno di sandalo, fondato su una profonda base scura di vaniglia, noce moscata, cannella, pimento e cumino.

Dark Light

Un impercettibile bagliore nell’oscurità. Come gli attimi intensi e soffusi subito prima che una forte tempesta squarci il cielo, Dark Light si insinua nella coscienza. I componenti sono più antichi della memoria, degli elementi della cultura e della venerazione: muschio, vaniglia autentica del Madagascar, mirra, angelica e la profonda aura complessa della gomma opoponax. Invertendo il calore dell’ambra con la freschezza delle aldeidi, Dark Light definisce e sfida la fantasia orientalista, colma di antiche resine e inestimabili elisir, e decostruisce il mito dell’esotico.

Midnight Train

Qui è caldo, caldo e secco. Le memorie si mescolano e collidono, spronate da fragranze in viaggio verso ampie distanze aride da città aromatiche: dolce legno di cedro del Texas, cisto legnoso dell’Andalusia e patchouli indonesiano in un vortice intorno a un accordo di ambra luminoso e caldo. Midnight Train evoca un calore polveroso, un intangibile colpo di vento sulla sabbia.
*Midnight Train viene venduto esclusivamente in negozi Selfridges del Regno Unito e Prada in Medio Oriente

Sioux maschere e pirati per il Carnevale di Pietro Ferrante

February 14, 2017 Leave a comment

Gioielli con maschere, pirati e Sioux per il Carnevale firmato Pietro Ferrante 

Classico o alternativo? Total body o solo un touch? Il conto alla rovescia per il Carnevale è partito ed anche la caccia al travestimento perfetto, che coinvolge sì i più piccoli, ma anche tanti adulti, pronti a dar sfogo alla fantasia in vista della festa più allegra e colorata dell’anno.

Per l’occasione, il brand Pietro Ferrante offre tanti spunti originali e l’opportunità di impreziosire i propri outfit carnevaleschi grazie a gioielli ad hoc.

Chi intendesse calarsi nei panni del capitano Jack Sparrow, protagonista della saga “Pirati dei Caraibi”, un evergreen per grandi e piccini, potrebbe scegliere ad esempio la collana, il bracciale o il portachiavi, tutti in ottone con finitura argento, arricchiti da teschi in versione corsaro… con tanto di benda sull’occhio e bandana.

I nostalgici soprattutto degli anni Settanta e Ottanta, quelli che da bambini amavano vestirsi da indiani, ora, potrebbero optare per un costume più sobrio, reso unico però dal maxi anello, interamente hand-made in Italy, con testa di capo tribù Sioux.

Mentre i più audaci, amanti del mistero, potrebbero scegliere invece il bracciale o il keyring con ciondolo a forma di maschera di civetta arricchita da rose, foglie e simboli massonici.

Gioielli autentici da sfoggiare durante la festa, ma anche tutti gli altri giorni dell’anno perché, come sostiene una nota canzone, la vida es un Carnaval.
