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 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.”

Porsche Moscow showcases Dynamiq GTT115 in Porsche MoscowDecember 5, 2017
The Porsche Sportcar Center in Moscow, the biggest Porsche dealer in Europe, was the venue for an exclusive event on 28th November in collaboration with Dynamiq to present the Monegasque superyacht brand and the GTT 115 designed by Studio F.A. Porsche. Over 40 VIP Porsche owners attended the gala event that started with cocktails and Beluga drinks, followed by an art exhibition and presentations by Dynamiq commercial director Maurizio Magri and Roland Reitenbach, senior transportation designer with Studio F.A. Porsche. The evening was rounded off with a ballet performance and lavish Mediterranean-style dinner. “This was a fantastic event enjoyed by all the high-end Russian guests who took part,” says Maurizio Magri. “It was also the perfect start to the Dynamiq GTT 115 road show that moves to Monaco on 7th December when we will unveil a brand new model, the GTT 165, at our showroom in the Monaco Yacht Club.”
Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid by Studio F.A. Porsche takes the yachting industry by stormOctober 25, 2017
Monaco 25th Oct 2017. The brand new Dynamiq 35m superyacht GTT 115 Hybrid, designed in collaboration with cult Studio F. A. Porsche, was one of the jewels in the crown at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show, the world’s most exclusive yachting exhibition.
“The world premiere is the culmination of a long process of design and development to introduce a new kind of superyacht to the market,” says Sergei Dobroserdov, CEO of Dynamiq.
"For us at Studio F. A. Porsche it was a very inspiring experience to be involved with a yacht project that is significantly different from others,” adds Roland Heiler, CEO of Studio F. A. Porsche
“It is smart, it is a hybrid and from a design point of view it is all about performance - below the waterline and above."
In fact, there are many ‘Firsts’ about this stunning 35m superyacht:
- 1st super-yacht on the market with the design spirit of Studio F. A. Porsche
- 1st to combine a top speed of 21 knots speed with Transat range;
- 1st with two engine rooms in her size category;
- And, most remarkably, the 1st you can configure and order online.
The GTT 115 draws on the latest technology with her round-bilge hull form, podded propulsion, Hull Vane and exclusively developed stabilisation system with 4 fins and interceptors. Her bespoke hybrid system and energy-saving, variable-speed generators are tributes to Dynamiq’s strong belief in the sustainable future of yachting.
At just 35m overall, the yacht offers the versatile spaces and feeling of a much larger vessel. On top of all this, the GTT 115 is finished to the highest standards and looks super cool in her chic Rhodium Silver metallic paint.
As a modern gentlemen’s superyacht, the starting point for the interior design was the Pepita houndstooth fabric, which was used by the 911 series in the 70’s and runs throughout the yacht. This pattern has been offset with high-gloss Macassar ebony veneers, dark brown saddle leather, Alcantara, Persian carpets and rare Sahara Noir marble.
“The aim was to use sporty, masculine and elegant materials to best effect,” says Dobroserdov. “We pride ourselves by always having function in mind, so while luxurious we also wanted to ensure that the interior was practical and user-friendly. What we love about this project is that it’s not a conventional-looking yacht, either inside or out.”
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 €12,500,000, with a short delivery time of 15 months from the date of order. The first GTT 115 Hybrid is listed for sale at €13.950.000 Euros (including €1,450,000 of options).

10 reasons why the Dynamiq GTT 115 is the most advanced superyacht in her class
Studio F. A. Porsche created the exclusive exterior lines imbued with Porsche DNA, such as the signature Targa-style mullions and transom styling that recalls the futuristic Mission E concept study. The yacht is available in Carrara White, Rhodium Silver, Chalk or special Monte-Carlo Blue exterior livery from the Porsche range of colours.
Designed by Dutch naval architects Vripack, the all-aluminium, round-bilge hull delivers remarkably low resistance and low fuel consumption, while still being capable of high speeds. The hull shape also decreases vertical accelerations, which translates into a far more comfortable motion when under way. The avant-garde bow shape with a vertical stem maximises the waterline length, enhancing performance even more, while an integrated spray rail deflects water from hitting the foredeck.
Developed by Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen, the Hull Vane® is a patented fixed foil located below the stern that influences the stern wave pattern and creates hydrodynamic lift, which is partially oriented forward. This innovation leads to a significant reduction in hull resistance, which in turn enables the installation of smaller engines, providing fuel savings and longer range. The Hull Vane® also improves stability under way and at anchor, while reducing both pitching and yawing motions.
Built in Germany, Fortjes pods are much more efficient than systems using conventional shafts and propellers. Their position outside the hull also means greatly reduced noise and vibration levels, as well as lower emissions. The pods use counter-rotating propellers linked via a compact gearbox to the main engines, reducing engine room space requirements by nearly 18%, which means more accommodation for you and your guests.
Swedish specialists Humphree created a custom stabilisation system using four cutting-edge electric stabilisers and four interceptors. Under way, the system reduces roll by up to 85% and enhances course keeping, and by up to 60% when at anchor. Electric stabilisers are far quieter, more reactive, take up less space and are more power-efficient than their hydraulic counterparts.
VARIABLE SPEED GENERATORS
The innovative Fischer Panda iSeries generators use variable-speed technology, which allows the speed of the engine to be adjusted according to the electrical load and power consumed. Variable speed generators have cleaner emissions, lower fuel consumption and are more economical to run. On the GTT 115, the generators are smartly placed in the special bow compartment to avoid any noise at night or fumes when swimming off the stern.
OPTIONAL HYBRID POWER PLANT
For ultimate acoustic comfort, an optional hybrid power package means that with the main engines switched off the generators can power two ultra-compact 20kW electric motors, allowing the yacht to reach 6 knots in complete silence for an unlimited period of time.
The GTT 115 features next-generation laminated XIR glass developed by Isoclima that allows maximum light transmission, while keeping solar heat gain at bay. Harmful UV rays are almost completely blocked, and heat transmission reduced by 60%. The result is an interior that offers the wide panoramas of large windows without the penalty of heat build-up. This means significantly reduced air-conditioning loads and, therefore, lower running costs.
EXPANSIVE SUN DECK
The 95-sq/m (1,022-sq/ft) sundeck is bigger than those found on much larger yachts. Created to provide maximum functionality, it offers four versatile zones: an aft sunbathing area; an alfresco dining area with 75-inch home theatre screen; a bar and barbecue zone; and a forward pool with sunbathing area. Deck furniture is from the Minotti outdoor collection, while deck cushions are fabric upholstered with a classic Pepita houndstooth pattern similar to the latest Porsche 991 R edition.
The GTT115 has a forward garage that that can store a 15-foot tender and jet-ski. Its forward position – unusual for a yacht of this size – provides not only great storage capacity, but also removes tender operations away from the guest areas in the stern.
