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)
