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 Fendi Casa at Montenapoleone Yacht ClubJune 15, 2018
For a few days each year during Montenapoleone Yacht Club, landlocked Milan becomes a virtual superyacht marina. Via Montenapolene is the equivalent of 5th Avenue in New York, Bond Street in London, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, or the Champs Elysses in Paris. It is the most exclusive street in the Quadrilatero della moda, the city’s fashion district, where all the leading designer brands have their high-end boutiques.
Aimed at highlighting the connection between the luxury sectors of fashion, jewellery, design and the world of superyachts, for the 2018 edition of the prestigious event from 14-20 May, Dynamiq partnered with Fendi Casa and Luxury Living Group by organising an exclusive cocktail party at Fendi Casa’s flagship store in Via Montenapoleone on 16 May.
A bizarre springtime downpour did nothing to dampen the atmosphere among the high-profile guests as our shipyard director, Marco Ramundo, presented the Dynamiq GTT 115, 130 and 165 models. Guests could also admire the detailed scale models of cutting-edge M/Y Jetsetter and GTT 115 1-of-7 designed by Studio F.A. Porsche – both award-winning examples of Dynamiq’s Gran Turismo Transatlantic series.
Dynamiq–Synergy racing team sails in Palma Vela to the maxMay 23, 2018
Dynamiq’s love for the sea and top-notch technology does not end with designing and building motoryachts. For years we’ve been passionate about high-tech sailing yachts, which is why we’re proud partners of the Dynamiq–Synergy racing team in the super-charged Melges 40 class. The composite Melges 40 is designed by Botin Partners with a unique canting keel for electrifying performance both upwind and downwind. Led by Michele Ivaldi, one of the best tacticians in the world, the Dynamiq–Synergy boat is sailed by a crack nine-man crew from Italy, New Zealand, Slovenia and Russia. In May 2018, they won 2nd place at Palma Vela, the most prestigious spring regatta in the Mediterranean. Just like Dynamiq, the Melges 40 racing experience is about lifestyle – and living it to the max!
Dynamiq Yachts & ArtMontecarloMay 4, 2018
As a proud Monegasque brand, Dynamiq Yachts was honoured to be part of ArtMontecarlo 2018 and lend the event a unique twist by organizing a modern art exhibition aboard M/Y Jetsetter. The floating HYPERSEA exhibition, curated by Juliette Desorgues, featured contemporary works by talented artists such as Nils Alix-Tabeling, Marian Tubbs, Mimosa Echard, Rebecca Jagoe, Dorota Gaweda and Eglė Kulbokaitė. Jetsetterprovided the very special backdrop to an exclusive event for the attending VIP collectors, who could peruse the works of art distributed around the yacht from stem to stern, sun deck to lower deck, while enjoying a cocktail in luxurious surroundings.
We were also privileged to welcome on board an official delegation led by Karol P. B. Vail Director of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice and foundation director for Italy. The Guggenheim Foundation continues to forge international collaborations that celebrate contemporary art, architecture and design, both within and beyond the walls of their museums.
Aiming to establish a quality artistic platform and contribute to the cultural development of the region, the third edition of ArtMontecarlo hosted nearly 40 rigorously selected international galleries at the Grimaldi Forum, together with a dozen exhibitions taken from major institutional and private collections.
DYNAMIQ AT THE SINGAPORE YACHT SHOW 2018April 15, 2018
Dynamiq Yachts, headed by founder and CEO Sergei Dobroserdov, has partnered with Arcon Yachts Asia and attended the 2018 Singapore Yacht Show (12-15 April) to showcase the innovative and expanded Dynamiq range, which now has a 165-foot flagship superyacht. “Our strategic partnership with Arcon Yachts Asia adds to our US and European partnerships, giving Dynamiq excellent exposure to very large, culturally diverse and wealthy populations,” commented Sergei Dobroserdov. “We are looking forward to showing cutting-edge design and many exciting innovations developed by Dynamiq to the maturing markets that are emerging in Asia.”
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."
