Dynamiq builds first superyacht with Porsche DNAMay 17, 2017
Monegasque yacht builder Dynamiq has joined forces with Studio F.A. Porsche to create an exclusive series of all-aluminium superyachts imbued with Porsche DNA. The world famous industrial and transport design studio, lead by Managing Director Roland Heiler (a Member of the Board at Porsche Design Group) has created both the exterior and interior styling of the entire range. The first 35-metre Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid is already under construction in Viareggio, Italy, while 100- and 85-foot models are in development and will be presented later this year.
"Taking the spirit of high-performance sportscar styling to the high seas, the Dynamiq GTT 115 is designed to appeal to car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance," says Roland Heiler.
The sporty exterior design by Studio F.A. Porsche matches the yacht’s noteworthy performance, and the name says it all: GTT stands for Grand Turismo Transatlantic. Two world leaders in hydrodynamics, both from the Netherlands, were commissioned to create efficient hulls for the new series. Vripack developed the hull lines of the GTT 115, while Van Oossanen is responsible for the naval architecture of the GTT 100 and GTT 85 models.
The GTT 115, the first in the series, features a round bilge aluminium hull and a specially engineered stabilisation system from Humphree with four electric fins and interceptors. Powered by twin 1213kW MAN engines paired with the latest Fortjes 5000 pods, the versatile superyacht can exceed a maximum speed of 21 knots and is capable of crossing the Atlantic with a range of 3,400nm. With a shallow draft of just 1.45 metres (less than 5 feet), the yacht is ideal for the Mediterranean, Caribbean or Southeast Asia.
An optional hybrid power system has been chosen for the first GTT 115 and is available via the exclusive Dynamiq Configurator. Other notable technical features include two technical compartments or engine rooms, with twin 45kW Fischer Panda variable-speed generators located in the bow. This smart layout ensures a silent ambience at night and avoids smoke and fumes at anchor while the owner and guests are swimming or sunbathing on the aft platform.
Available in the signature Porsche Carrara white, Rhodium Silver, Chalk or custom Monte-Carlo Blue exterior colours, the GTT 115 boasts refined lines with signature Porsche elements, such as the Targa-style mullions or the transom design that echoes the Mission E concept. The deck cushions feature fabric centres with a classic Pepita houndstooth pattern, similar to the latest 991 R edition.
On the inside, the sporty yet refined interior features three or four luxury cabins with Saddle brown and Luxor beige leather with carbon fibre details, and expansive surfaces of Sahara Noir marble. The furniture and decoration were developed in association with the Italian designer brand Minotti.
“When we talk about comfort and top service, the ideal for this size of yacht is six guests in three cabins served by a 1:1 ratio of six crew for genuinely exclusive onboard service,” says Dynamiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov. “We also designed the interior ceiling heights to more than 2.15 metres (7 feet), even in the lower deck cabins: that’s real luxury on a 35-metre yacht.” In fact, Dynamiq yachts bring the comfort and luxury of much larger superyachts to a smaller segment of the market. They are aimed at a discerning clientele that appreciates the builder’s rational approach to creating more manageable yachts.
“Our target clients might include those who are looking to downsize from larger 50- or 60-metre yachts,” continues Dobroserdov. “They are already accustomed to the highest standards, but are ready to leave behind the hassle and huge costs of owning large vessels so they can enjoy the fun side of yacht ownership. The Dynamiq GTT 115 is the perfect realisation of utmost comfort and a sporty lifestyle in a practical and relatively compact package.”
What truly sets Dynamiq apart as a builder is the ability for clients to configure their purchase online to their own specific requirements, all within a short delivery time. The GTT 115 is no exception and can be customised via Dynamiq’s unique Configurator, which allows the client to personalise every aspect of the yacht, from paint colours to interiors and electronics, and automatically track the total cost in real time. This easy-to-use innovation brings complete transparency to the yacht-buying process – just one way that Dynamiq is seeking to bring about a paradigm shift in the yachting industry.
A limited edition of just seven GTT 115 yachts will be manufactured, making the model a truly unique collector’s edition. Prices for the GTT 115 start from €11,900,000, with a short delivery time of 15 months from the date of order.
The first GTT 115 by Studio F.A. Porsche is available for sale with delivery in September 2017. Her world debut will take place at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show and the yacht will attend subsequent international events. (bedynamiq.com)
Dynamiq and Magma marble specialistsFebruary 9, 2018
Dynamiq aims to build the most efficient and versatile superyachts on the market. To realise this vision, we bring to the 30-50m sector the same high quality standards and contractors that work with the leading north European shipyards building 100m megayachts.
As our strategic marble supplier and outfitter, we chose Magma Srl based in Licata, Sicily. Supplying the finest quality stone on Jetsetter, for example, meant finding flawless Calacatta Oro and Bianco Cristallino marble to compliment the exotic natural woods chosen by the interior designers Bannenberg & Rowell. And in the case of the GTT 115, Magma was tasked with sourcing sufficient quantities of Sahara Noir marble from Morocco, a rare black stone with gorgeous white and gold veins that is notoriously difficult to work with.
Magma was founded in 1998 by brothers Mario and Angelo Bellomo, the third generation of a family of marble craftsmen. Over the years it has developed unrivalled experience and technical expertise as a boutique supplier to the superyacht industry, especially in northern Europe. The list of shipyards and designers that Magma works with sounds like a Who’s Who of the yachting industry: names such as Lurssen, Amels, Oceanco, Kusch Yachts, Sam Sorgiovanni, Terence Disdale, Andrew Winch, Pinto Design and Nuvolari & Lenard. The yachts to emerge from these collaborations rank among the largest in the world and include Azzam, Topaz, Kismet, Al Mirqab, Anastasia, Alfa Nero and Jubilee. “The superyacht industry has changed dramatically since we first started out some 20 years ago,” explains Mario Bellomo. “As the size of the yachts has increased, so too have the expectations of owners. On a 120m megayacht currently in build in Germany, for instance, there are around 40 different types on marble on board.”
“Dynamiq insisted on only the best quality stone and finishing,” concludes Mario. “To achieve that, you have to be able to combine the latest CNC machinery with highly skilled craftsmanship. We’re proud that we managed to achieve such a perfect result making these innovative yachts also very exclusive."
A big day for DynamiqFebruary 5, 2018
Having been nominated for 5 Boat International Design & Innovation Awards, Dynamiq is delighted to announce that our GTT 115 Hybrid, designed in partnership with Studio F.A. Porsche, won the award for Best Naval Architecture Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts at the prize-giving ceremony in Kitzbühel, Austria, on Sunday 28 January. “Technological innovation, efficient performance, cruising comfort and stylish design have been part and parcel of the Dynamiq philosophy from the very beginning,” says Dynamiq CEO and founder Sergei Dobroserdov. “The GTT 115 is a natural evolution of a mission that started with Jetsetter, and this accolade is a concrete sign that we’re on the right track! I would especially like to thank Vripack in The Netherlands, who were responsible for the innovative naval architecture.”
Dynamiq x Fattoria di Montemaggio - In Vino VeritasDecember 18, 2017
Christmas is a cosy time of the year that we usually spend with our family and the people we love. It is also a time of good food and wine, so to make the festive season even more special, Dynamiq has partnered up with an award-winning Tuscan winemaker based close to its shipyard in Viareggio.
The Fattoria di Montemaggio estate comprises 70 hectares, including forest and vineyards, in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Classico region, one of the breath-taking and most highly prized wine-producing areas in Italy. During the grape harvest, which is carried out entirely by hand, the fruit undergoes careful selection in the vineyard and again later in the winery. This hand-made approach to winemaking ensures that the finished product preserves the natural ‘terroir’ or distinctive qualities of the climate and soil where the vines are cultivated.
The process is not unlike the Italian craftsmanship and Dutch engineering that defines each and every Dynamiq superyacht. Quality, performance and innovative design are the cornerstones of the brand’s philosophy, resulting in the most aesthetically striking and technically advanced yachts in Dynamiq’s chosen size category of 27–50m.
“We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Fattoria di Montemaggio to produce an assortment of limited-edition wines,” says Sergei Dobroserdov, CEO and founder of Dynamiq. “Fattoria di Montemaggio is a thoroughly modern winemaker that lives up to its motto of being the finest in quality. This philosophy resonated with us at Dynamiq as we strive to be a pioneer in the yachting industry at the forefront of new concepts and technology. Nothing beats a glass of fine wine on the deck of a Dynamiq yacht in the company of family and friends at Christmas.”
Dynamiq has completely reinvented the yacht-buying experience with its Online Configurator that allows owners to choose every detail of their purchase – from paint colour and underwater lights to general arrangement and interior décor options – in real time and complete transparency. And now you can add a supply of bespoke Fattoria di Montemaggio wine to the exclusive list of options!
Dynamiq excites brokers with GTT 165 ConceptDecember 13, 2017
During a special event on 7th December at the Monaco Yacht Club, home to the Dynamiq head office, CEO Sergei Dobroserdov and naval architect Perry van Oossanen presented the new GTT 165 project to a rapt audience of leading yacht brokers.
The GTT 165 represents the latest – and largest – addition to the Dynamiq feet and introduces yet more technical innovation. The Fast Displacement XL hull form is a new development by Van Oossanen Naval Architects that instead of prioritising volume, aims to maximise waterline length within a given gross tonnage for optimal speed, range and comfort.
In addition and working in combination with the Hull Vane, the GTT 165 will feature a Naiad T-Foil. This ride control device under the forward section of the hull provides lift to further reduce drag. By pivoting the foil and adding active flaps, the device can reduce pitching by up to 50 per cent to enhance performance and comfort. The GTT 165 represents the first time the technology has been applied to a monohull superyacht of this size.
“We looked the market for 50m yachts under 500GT and firmly believe there are no all-aluminium competitors for the GTT 165 in terms of speed, consumption, comfort, price and running costs,” Dobroserdov told the brokers present. “That might sound pretty simple to achieve, but to make it happen we had to form a team with the brightest and most experienced naval architects and engineers.”
