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)
Superyacht brand Dynamiq and luxury pen makers Montegrappa create special edition penJune 26, 2020
Continuing our policy of creating exclusive, all-encompassing experiences on board, Dynamiq has partnered with Montegrappa – the 108-year-old Italian maker of high-end writing instruments – to create a special edition rollerball pen that takes its design cues from the latest Dynamiq superyacht in build, the 41-metre GTT 135.
Destined to become a collector’s item, the custom-edition GTT 135 pen features a beautifully balanced metal body with a silky satin finish in champagne silver, engraved with elegant curves recalling the yacht’s exterior profile. Alongside red accents and a gold pocket clip embossed with the Dynamiq name, the base of the pen is capped with real wood to resemble teak decking.
The option to select this special Montegrappa pen is available immediately for the new GTT 135 via Dynamiq’s unique online yacht configurator. Other models will follow later this year. https://www.bedynamiq.com/models/configurator.htm
"Montegrappa began as a manufacturer of gold nibs and fountain pens using a pool of local talent to produce high quality writing instruments with precision and panache – just like the next-generation yachts Dynamiq designs and builds for its discerning owners.” says Giuseppe Aquilla, owner of the family company that makes pens for connoisseurs and devotees around the world. “I visited Dynamiq’s yacht earlier in the year and was impressed. We realised Montegrappa and Dynamiq share many of the same values, like an insistence on quality, craftsmanship and innovation. And like Dynamiq we even have an online configurator for customising your own pen!”
"We keep on expanding our network of the world's finest suppliers,” says Dynamiq founder Sergei Dobroserdov. "It’s an honour for us to collaborate with a brand such as Montegrappa – makers of the pens of choice for popes, presidents and royalty, including Pope John Paul II, King Juan Carlos of Spain, King Hussein of Jordan, Queen Sirikit of Thailand and the Sultan of Brunei.”
Other renowned partners Dynamiq has recently partnered with are Fürstenberg porcelain from Germany, Germany’s second-oldest porcelain house, and Carter & White, a high-end Emirati bedding manufacturer.

DYNAMIQ GTM 90 KLASSEN EDITIONApril 15, 2020
One of the rare yacht models that was due to be presented at this year’s Geneva Motor Show before the event was cancelled due to coronavirus was the Dynamiq GTM 90 developed in cooperation with Klassen, the exclusive car tuner from Germany. The fast and sporty, all-aluminium 27.5-metre yacht is designed not only to entertain, but also protect guests whatever the weather.
«Today a mainstream yacht up to 100 feet is a Med boat, but we looked at the markets with more extreme climates where together with cruising excitement the yacht should be a safe shelter for guests when needed,” explains brand founder Sergei Dobroserdov. “Places like the Arabian peninsula, Asian destinations and northern Europe. This is where the yacht needs to be open and full of sea breeze during the daytime, but almost closed when evening comes and the temperature rapidly drops. At the moment, the only way to have large open or closed areas is to lengthen your yacht. But by justifying the ‘IQ' at the end of the Dynamiq brand name, we had the idea of combining these areas. So the aft beach club, dining area and open-style galley with bar can be transformed within seconds using sliding doors and foldable bulwarks."
The GTM 90 hull lines were developed with Dynamiq's long-term partner Van Oossanen Naval Architects in the Netherlands, who created a super-efficient, hard chine hull that can achieve a top speed of 30kn+ with three relatively compact Volvo Penta IPS-1350 pods. The sleek, sporty yacht has a very respectable range of 800nm when cruising at 17 knots.
The striking exterior styling owes much to automotive design with a superstructure that recalls the lines of some supercars. There is a cosy sundeck with sunbed behind the radar mast accessed by an exterior staircase and a 3-seat sofa in the bow to enjoy the thrill of cruising at speed.
The rich and sophisticated interior features a forward salon and a bar/galley area overlooking the aft beach club, which can remain open on sunny days or be closed when the evenings turn chilly to create almost a winter garden effect. Fold-down bulwarks and sliding glass doors help increase natural ventilation. Head heights are a generous 2.20m throughout the main deck (Dynamiq provides another option of the main deck layout where salon and dining area are united to form a larger space for groups of up to 16 people). A Bowers & Wilkins audio system delivers an incredible high-end sound experience throughout the yacht.
There are four guest cabins on the lower deck, including a spacious master stateroom with a distinctive circular bed from the Bentley Home collection. A tribute to the Middle Eastern market is the owner’s bath, finished in fine onyx and equipped with a custom hammam for two people. The sophisticated interior design is by Giuseppina Arena, another Dynamiq partner.
The yacht can also carry a 5.5x5.5m inflatable FunAir pool with a protective net for guests nervous of swimming in open water.
The first edition of the GTM 90 is developed in collaboration with Klassen that supplies the world business and political elite (including +10 national presidents) with ultra-luxury vans and limousines. The yacht’s interior decor mirrors the design features of exclusive Klassen cars with different upholstery, rich wood panelling and elegant LED courtesy lights. Klassen is also responsible for the wheelhouse design and manufacturing as well as interior and exterior detailing, including leather supply, stitching and other special automotive design features.
“Dynamiq and Klassen share the same values related to high-end materials, engineering, finishing and maximum comfort on board for their demanding clientele,” says Paul Klassen, company founder and CEO. “It's all about flawless perfection and first-class comfort on land and sea.”
The GTM 90 "KLASSEN edition" starts from euro 7,500,000 and can be personally configured at https://www.bedynamiq.com/models/configurator.htm
Dynamiq reinvents the 50-metre class with its new GTT 160March 18, 2020
The Dynamiq range of configurable superyachts is set to grow after the yard revealed the first details of its forthcoming GTT 160 project.
The avant-garde, full-aluminium 49.5-metre vessel represents what Dynamiq thinks is essential for modern superyachts - cool looking, efficient and focused on sport and well-being. The GTT 160 is aimed at today’s active owners who want to experience different destinations or cross the Atlantic quickly and enjoy endless summers in the Med and Caribbean on a more manageable and economical size of yacht. And they are smart enough to be excited by the very attractive starting price of €19,900.000.
With racy, contemporary styling by Dobroserdov Design, the GTT 160 offers luxurious accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins and crew quarters for up to eight staff. The master stateroom enjoys pride of place on the main deck forward and features two large fixed side balconies. The vast galley with breakfast bar is designed for use by both a professional chef or for cooking in the company of friends.
The upper deck includes a cinema lounge with a 75-inch screen, as well as a bar area. The sun deck hosts a second helm position with breathtaking views and plenty of room for sunbathing. Unusually and a first for a superyacht, the main deck aft is devised as a massive beach club of 120 sqm with a hot tub for 12 people and enclosed Spa area with sauna, hammam and a convertible gymnasium of almost 40 sqm with space for a massage table. These features are more typical of vessels twice her size.
The GTT 160 not only looks amazing but also features advanced onboard technology. Dutch hydrodynamic specialist Van Oossanen Naval Architects, Dynamiq long-term partners, designed the fast-displacement hull with an aft Hull Vane foil for extra lift underway that decreases drag and improves fuel efficiency. As a result, the yacht can achieve a top speed of 17 knots when fitted with modest MAN 6-cylinder (537 kW) engines. Transatlantic crossings are possible at 14 knots and the maximum range at an economical speed of 10 knots is 4,000 nautical miles. Those looking to prioritise speed can upgrade to the S version, which will offer a more powerful pair of MAN V12-1800 engines for a top speed of 23 knots. An optional hybrid system with zero-emission electric mode can provide silent cruising at up to 8 knots.
“The idea was to create the most attractive proposal for a superyacht of just under 50 metres.” says Sergei Dobroserdov, Dynamiq founder and CEO. “There are so many 50-metre yachts below 500GT available, but they all look very similar with pretty much the same functionality. We asked ourselves ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients?’ The answer was to focus on modern owners priorities and leave the less important things aside. So we decided to design the GTT 160 with the accent on the key factors: well-being, efficiency and price. In terms of naval architecture, we selected a slender hull with a long waterline that is much more efficient and comfortable than a short, wide one. So rather than maximising the interior volume we analysed everything an owner wants or needs in terms of general arrangement and features. We then arrived at a concept that provides the motion comfort of a 55-metre yacht with a conventional flared bow.
To complete the package, the GTT 160 houses a 21-foot tender in the forward garage and is equipped with a touch-and-go helipad platform with a maximum take-off weight 3,000 kg.
The GTT 160 can be configured at www.bedynamiq.com with an almost endless amount of options.
