Majesty 175 The World’s Largest Composite Yacht From Gulf Craft

November 27, 2020

Gulf Craft Reference.

Gulf Craft launches the World’s largest composite yacht Majesty 175 in production today at the length 54 meters and a beam of 9.6 meters.

The announcement of the project was at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2016.

The yacht’s interior and exterior lines were penned by Cristiano Gatto of Cristiano Gatto Design Studio based in Italy, while the naval architecture was provided by Massimo Gregori of the Yankee Delta Studio, who was also responsible for the hull of the shipyard’s Majesty 155.

With a gross tonnage of 780, the Majesty 175 offers accommodations for 14 guests in 7 spacious staterooms. The owner’s suite is situated forward of the upper deck allowing dual side access to a 5-meter-long pool with a unique swim-stream feature.  There are 6 large crew cabins as well as a private captain accommodation.

Being built to MCA regulations (for yachts above 500GT) and using advanced composite materials such as carbon fiber and vinylester, this yacht sets new standards for innovation and technology in the yachting industry.  This material advancement allows her to cruise through low draft areas, such as the Caribbean Ocean, drawing only 2.25 meters of water.

She is propelled by two fixed pitch six-blade propellers and is powered by twin heavy duty MTU engines 12V 4000 M63 developing 1500kW each. Her onboard electrical supply comes from a pair of 175 kW Kohler generators and is equipped with two pairs of TRAC fin stabilizers. On completion, the yacht will have a full speed of 16.5 knots. At a cruising speed of 10 knots, she has a range of 4,000 nm, making her a transoceanic vessel. All safety equipment required for a yacht over 500GT has been installed. This includes a SOLAS rescue boat and an emergency generator.

Numarine expands yacht range with 78HTS Sportfly

May 10, 2017

Turkish yard Numarine has announced the newest addition to its range, the Numarine 78HTS Sportfly. An evolution of the popular Numarine 78HT, this 24 metre yacht boasts a redesigned superyacht sundeck, complete with a central helm station and four reclining sunpads.

The aggressive exterior styling features cutaway bulwarks to allow more light into the main deck saloon, which is geared around socialising.

Accommodation is for eight guests split between four lower deck en-suite cabins, including a full-beam owner’s cabin with its own walk-in shower. Key features include a split foredeck seating area, which is ideal for relaxing in the sun and enjoying the view when cruising at speed.

Cutting edge technology on board the Numarine 78HTS Sportfly includes a smart energy management system that allows the yacht to operate silently at anchor all day with only a brief use of the generators to recharge at midday.
The redesigned sundeck sets the 78 HTS Sportfly apart from the rest of the range

Noise insulation has also been thoroughly thought through and the result is a reading of just 66DB in the lower deck area when cruising. Power comes from a pair of 1,550hp MAN V8 engines for a top speed of 38 knots and a maximum cruising range of up to 400 nautical miles at 28 knots.

Ferretti Group leads tributes to Carlo Riva (1922-2017)

April 11, 2017

One of the yachting industry’s most renowned entrepreneurs, Carlo Riva died peacefully on (April 10) in his hometown of Sarnico.

Alberto Galassi, chief executive officer at parent company Ferretti Group, led the tributes, saying: “The world has lost a brilliant creator of boats, a master of style, [and] a giant in Italy’s industrial and business history.”

Carlo Riva was the man behind such legendary speedboats as the Aquarama and the Tritone
Born on February 24, 1922, Carlo Riva followed in the footsteps of his father Serafino, his grandfather Ernesto and his great-grandfather Pietro when he joined the family business at a young age. The newest member of the Riva dynasty went on to lead the company into an unprecedented golden era.

One of the earliest examples of a Carlo Riva-era speedboat was the Riva Ariston. He described it as “strong and pure, like a thoroughbred horse”.

Legendary models such as the Riva Florida, the Riva Tritone and the Riva Sebino were also launched under his tenure, culminating with the 1962 debut of the Riva Aquarama, which has come be to considered as one of the true icons of yachting.

Now part of the Ferretti Group, the Riva brand has grown to encompass everything from sporty 12 metre tenders to 50 metre steel and aluminium superyachts.

His values and ideas still influence the company today, as Galassi added: “Carlo Riva’s boats will always be a source of inspiration to all of us who feel a strong sense of responsibility for taking this leading brand forward into the future. Farewell Mr Riva, and enjoy the sea in your last voyage towards the horizon.”

First Ferretti 920 Yacht Under Construction

March 6, 2017

Ferretti Group has revealed more details of this forthcoming maxi flybridge yacht.

Developed in collaboration with Zuccon International Project and due to be officially unveiled in September, this 28.49 metre fast planing yacht is being built from a GRP hull and superstructure to RINA classification.

Key features include a raised bow design that allows for a wider main-deck owner’s cabin, as well as adding to the imposing and aggressive appearance of the yacht on the water.

Ferretti Group adds that the foredeck seating area on the 920 is the largest it has ever created for a yacht of this size, with two sofas, a coffee table and removable sun shades.

Moving aft and the swim platform will be fitted with a submersible hatch, which allows for easier tender launches and creates a beach club area when the smaller vessel is deployed.

The cockpit will be made available in a choice of two layouts, with owners able to choose between a chaiselongue or a sofa in this area. The flexible superyacht sundeck includes freestanding furniture and a choice of convertible Bimini options, from variable louvres to tinted glass.

Interior décor will be reminiscent of the recently launched Ferretti 850 series — recessed ceiling light and panoramic windows will create the impression of a floating penthouse. Accommodation is for 8-10 guests with a choice of two lower-deck layouts, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to five people.

Power will come from a pair of MTU diesel engines — those who choose the most powerful twin 2,435hp set-up will be table to enjoy a sporty top speed of 30 knots. Other optional extras include zero-speed fins stabilisers or the Seakeeper stabilisation system.

Ferretti Group wins at the “Boat Builder Awards for business achievement” 2016

December 18, 2016

The Submersible Hatch system, first implemented on the new Ferretti Yachts 850, was recognized as best in category for Innovative On Board Design Solution.

The strong efforts in Research & Development allowed Ferretti Group to defeat its competitors once again, conquering a new prestigious prize to add to its important history.

The Group won the Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement in the Innovative On Board Design Solution category, one of the eight competing areas of the prestigious event organized by METSTRADE and IBI (International Boating Industry) magazine. The ceremony took place in Amsterdam last Wednesday evening, during the Marine Equipment Trade Show.

The prize, sponsored by FUSION, a leading company in the production of stereo systems, speakers, subwoofers and amplifiers designed specifically for the marine use, recognized Ferretti Group for its new float-in garage and stern opening system developed in collaboration with H + B Technics. The Submersible Hatch can be found on the new Ferretti Yachts 850. It allows the stern garage door to open and tilt down onto the beach area, creating a larger beach club at water level. Once the door is over the platform, it automatically aligns and then lowers diagonally under the water together with the central part of the platform. In this way, the garage is flooded to launch the tender and jet-ski. The platform can then be submerged to various depths, allowing guests to prepare for sea activities or simply relax in the water.

This successful solution not only enhances the owners’ enjoyment of their boats but presents outstanding engineering and design elements. It has been registered as a patent of the Ferretti Group and will be featured on future model, starting with the new Riva 100’ Corsaro.

This approach made it possible to implement several other technologically advanced and patented solutions, such as the Convertible Top on Riva 88’ Florida and 76’ Bahamas and the Dual Mode Transom (DMT) system, installed on board all the latest Custom Line maxi yacht.
