On The Market: M/Y RUSH with Imperial Yachts

Imperial Yachts is proud of its latest addition to their ‘On The Market’ portfolio. A superyacht they’re rightfully dubbing a ‘Ferrari of The Seas’, the Mangusta 50m M/Y Rush is the slickest way to accessorise the Med this summer. Now listed for sale, we talk speed and style with the Monaco brokerages’ Director, Julia Stewart.

It’s a failsafe combination; speed and style. When power is wrapped up in a sophisticated package there isn’t much to contest. Rush is a superyacht that combines these elements yet has never been offered for charter or sale before. Hoping for a buyer who will enjoy her in the summer, we asked about her suitability for the continental regions we all know and love.

Julia began, “RUSH is like a “Ferrari of the seas”: a highly-styled / stylish vessel with stabilizers, a quite unusual asset of 50m open speed boat of this quality. You can easily make a quick run from Monaco to Saint-Tropez, or join the most beautiful spots of Porto Cervo in perfect peace of mind, arriving with style and elegance.”

She continued, “Thinking about her speed is also thinking about the quality of cruising: here again, thanks to her pristine condition and intensive care, RUSH is among the best in her category. The Imperial management standards have a high reputation within our industry!”

Aptness for the Med confirmed, it surely won’t be too much of a challenge to find a new owner for RUSH’s impressive list of superlatives, but Mangusta-builds have a strong silhouette and we wanted to know who she would be most suited-to. “A buyer who loves speed, roaring design and unrivaled quality of materials is the ideal one to own RUSH,” explained Julia.

“The Mangusta 165’ range is unique, and so their owners: being a part of this legend is an achievement that we wish to her future buyer. She is not only fantastic from the outside: she boasts plethora of details that makes her really standing out in her range!”

But it’s not just her sporty exterior that provides a draw, on the inside, her interior reflects that of a much more spacious vessel. Ornate and inspiring, her list of stand-out features is endless.   

Julia described, “There is so much to say about her interiors, but let’s start by the beginning: it’s a vessel which was supervised during her construction by the Imperial teams, so we pushed the standards very high with Overmarine to reach the expectations of our client.”

Involved in the original build and design process and now her sale, Imperial Yachts are experts on Rush, inside and out. Details include, “An abundance of Wenge wood, Mother of Pearl, Onyx, silk blend carpets and high-end designed Foglizzo leather wall panels… her layout is also impressive: our teams did all the necessary for any space on board to be fully optimized: it results a 5-cabins layout with an additional spa/Mmassage room, very unusual on open boat.”

The best in her high octane class, 50m Rush is introduced to the market for the first time with Imperial Yachts and we look forward to seeing her new owners crossing horizons on board in the coming season.

Interior Insight: A Statement of Style on Okto

Interior Insight: A Statement of Style on Okto

Interior Insight: A Statement of Style on Okto

With interior furnishings that transform 66-metres into a plush dimension of luxury, M/Y Okto showcases puts Alberto Pinto into the spotlight. Pinto’s stylish masterpiece contemporary and cool matching her exterior futurism, defines and develops our notion of ‘tradition’ being just a shadow of todays superyacht fleet.

Andrea Vallicelli, the exterior designer of the ISA yacht, made his 2014 build year a representation of a new era in design. Heavily influenced by the automotive industry and with a sleek silhouette that is loud and commanding yet seriously elegant, Superyacht Okto is a head turner making a journey at sea full of character. 

A step on board, it is her deck space that sets the scene for balmy summer evenings welcoming guests with cocktails at the dozen. Her fusion of grey and black decking by Esthec even has the added pleasure of being heel-proof for guests due to its unique material, as well as aesthetically one of the most visually pleasing points of her space, for sundowners to escape into serenity. 

Throw in a 6-metre infinity pool with a blushing pink hue of underlighting that can be spotted from miles, Okto’s distinct character refuses not to be noticed. To give a sensory escape into the ocean, it can be filled with salt/fresh water, giving its owner a connection to the sea, allowing its guests to merge into natures wonder, even from the deck off Okto. 

Letting the party begin, Superyacht Okto knows how to turn on its charm for guests. With 1,000W speakers lead long summer nights into the early morning, her touch and go helipad on the foredeck means staying and leaving in style.

Style continues right into the interior, something Alberto Pinto, who’s previous work include 82-metre M/Y Alfa Nero, skilfully creates by harmonising the indoors and outdoors perfectly.  The marrying of nude and sultry creams, dashes of poignant blacks and warm golden hues, make her sumptuously modern while glamorously royal. Statement light fixtures are just the example of this, offering a visually alluring point of space that is trully eye-catching.

Inviting 12 guests, Okto makes a seclusion at sea feel effortless. The Owners Suite offers large and commanding skylights and a private fold down terrace allowing you to be at the mercy of the great out doors as if in touching distance of nature’s charms. Add in the tech of cutting-edge audio system and a 103-inch plasma TV,  its owner for a cinematic experience on board. Okto now available for sale, makes the perfect vessel to revel in stylish grandios on board serenity.

An American Classic: Superyacht Show Time Sold

An American Classic: Superyacht Show Time Sold

An American Classic: Superyacht Show Time Sold

Show Time, a classically styled, immaculately maintained Broward superyacht, has become the latest brokerage announcement to emerge from IYC after Sales & Charter Consultant Richard Gray introduced a new owner to a 38.10-metre motor yacht with global appeal.

Launched in 1989, the traditional style of the all-aluminium Show Time is deceptive of its age, and after significant refits in 1995 and 2015, this yacht is built with timeless design in its DNA. Not only is the profile an effortless take on American yachting, but the interiors are cavernous, with expertly designed lifestyle spaces inside and across her three decks.

The interiors offer up to eight guests on board true relaxation with finely crafted furniture, elegant conversation spaces and a clean, stripped-back decor; however, it’s the smaller elements such as the automated dining table, wine station and curved staircase that provide the charm offensive.

This isn’t just a motoryacht, or part of the American inventory, this is a Broward with genuine character and a superyacht that defies market trend by simply attracting the right owner.

“Buyers in the 30 to 40-metre range want volume and size, but for good value,” explains Richard Gray. “Show Time is that yacht; a solid, all-aluminium vessel which ticked all the boxes for the new owners and everyone is happy with the result. The key to finding Show Time was an owner who wasn’t shy to look further afield to find the right yacht and didn’t compromise based on location. That’s the key, not limiting yourself to a region.”

The owner’s ongoing journey is now set to be filled with relaxation on the sun deck, as well as entertaining main deck aft thanks to TV, loungers and wet bar leading down to the main salon and the beach club; home to the arsenal of toys and effortless access to the ocean.

Listed at an asking price of $3,675,000, Show Time was listed with Denison Yachting and is the latest sales announcement to emerge from the IYC team.

The Unbridled Superyacht Experience of St. David

The Unbridled Superyacht Experience of St. David

The Unbridled Superyacht Experience of St. David

The idea of tying lines against a distant island to create a private beach, unlimited fine-dining and cocktails on the sundeck as the night draws in is the running ethos behind the charter machine that is St. David. Built by the Italian artisans at Benetti, this stand-out 60-metre has this week undergone a significant price reduction, providing the perfect double-take on an immaculately styled motor yacht.

With a lifestyle based on the best of the best, the price is no major motivator; but the yacht itself represents the very core of what owning a superyacht should entail. As you tender from your chosen marina to the yacht sat at anchor, the first-impression of St. David is that of intricately drawn lines, modern capabilities and a Winch Design style befitting of icon status.

It’s only when stepping on board does the gravity of your escape sink in. The world-class crew have the details in hand, and it’s your choice where to go, what to do and how to live on board. Take the 2008-built Benetti across the Mediterranean in search of undiscovered islands, coastal experiences and ocean excitement, or open the tender garage to unleash the arsenal of toys in your chosen cove.

Inside, space is another first-impression on offer as the volume of this 60-metre is deceptive of its size. Throughout the expertly styled interiors – refitted in 2017 – which can accommodate up to 12 guests and the external deck spaces which offer even more lifestyle appeal, this is an expansive superyacht built for enjoying the journey.

Now available for sale with West Nautical at an asking price of €22,500,000 following a €1,000,000 price reduction, St. David is a must-see superyacht for those looking to return to the Mediterranean with the Summer and experience a season on board like no other.

Another 50-Metre in the Yard for Genova’s Tankoa

Another 50-Metre in the Yard for Genova’s Tankoa

Another 50-Metre in the Yard for Genova’s Tankoa

When Vertige hit the water back in 2017, her lines and sophistication surpassed expectations, bringing to the water a delicately carved masterpiece; a testament to shipyard, Tankoa. One year on and the yard have announced the build of a second 50m following in the footsteps of her sister-ship, with thanks to a sale process steered by SINOS S.A.

With Florence-based Francesco Paszkowski responsible for the design of the S502 Elettra model, we expect to see a build just as timeless, yet futuristic as Vertige. Her interior, designed with free-flowing spaces and separate crew-pathways for ultimate privacy, has been created to ensure optimal circulation.

From renderings, subtle golden tones and rich creamy hues add to the space-creation, leaving light and fuss-free rooms that add to the air of relaxation.

The exterior spaces are also expected to echo the calm formula found within. Al fresco dining space is a-plenty, while on the upper deck, there’s a comfortable sky lounge and on the foredeck, a solarium and open-air lounge for maximum exposure to the ocean. But it doesn’t end there. The fly-deck is another outdoor solace where sofas, sunbeds, a bar and Jacuzzi provide the perfect place to entertain.

Neverthless, the S502 Elettra won’t be an exact reflection of Vertige. Innovations in engineering have developed a forward-thinking hybrid propulsion system, which offers 4 differing operation modes. Ranging from full-speed to hybrid and diesel electric, different ranges at various speeds can be obtained; a nod to the environmental considerations that many owners now wish to fulfill.

Hoping to be the next pillar of excellence in the yard’s boutique collection of builds, Elettra joins 71m C102 in the Tankoa shed, which is due for launch later this year. With plenty of activity underway, we look forward to seeing the Italian-builders’ developments both in and out of the shed.

Nobiksrug & Imperial Sign New 77-metre Yacht Project

Nobiksrug & Imperial Sign New 77-metre Yacht Project

Nobiksrug & Imperial Sign New 77-metre Yacht Project

Working with the world-renowned Nobiskrug shipyard, Imperial Yachts – acting as the broker, owner’s representative and build-supervisor – has today announced the signing of a remarkable new 77-metre superyacht project set to enter construction in Germany.

Teased in a stripped-back sketch, the first look at this brand-new project hints at a distinctive reverse bow and dynamic exterior – designed by the team at Winch Design – while five decks of imposing interior – styled by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design – and expansive beach club area offers an unparalleled lifestyle.

“This new superyacht is an exciting project we are impatient to start. It will be the second over 70-metre length superyacht we will build together with Nobiskrug after the magnificent Project 783 delivered in 2012, and this project is calling many others to be developed. 

We are delighted to initiate new strong and successful collaborations with Andrew Winch and Sinot Design, making this new 77-metre Nobiskrug superyacht an outstanding vessel at her delivery and most certainly a class of her own”, says Julia Stewart, Director of Imperial.

“With the two remarkable teams of designers and an experienced superyacht management company, we are truly excited to realize this bespoke project,” says Holger Kahl, Managing Director of Nobiskrug.

Flowing lines, an undoubtedly inspired use of glass given the hints across the profile and a truly distinctive character, this state-of-the-art project is set to be built under the new Tier 3 regulations and the very new Red Ensign Group Yacht Code Part A.

Due for completion in Spring 2021, we can’t wait to see more from the shipyard, supervisors and designers as the build progresses.

Lürssen Project Icecap Sold by Moran Yacht & Ship

Currently under construction at Lürssen Yachts, Moran Yacht & Ship has today announced the sale of Project Icecap; a 109-metre motor yacht with state-of-the-art technology surrounding energy saving and diesel-electric propulsion.

While details are (naturally) still scarce, the distinctive rugged lines of Project Icecap are something entirely new given the vast aft, extreme height and powerful bow.

Seemingly born from the desire to cruise new grounds, this huge superyacht is yet another example of the Lürssen Yachts / Moran Yacht & Ship collaboration which has seen countless superyacht projects hit the water such as AuroraProject Fiji and the upcoming Project Redwood to name a few.

Now sold, Project Icecap is an exciting technological advancement given the diesel-electric propulsion, energy efficiency, power storage and heating systems throughout; not to mention the scale of which they have to function.

At over 6500 GRT, this complex and cavernous project will no doubt set new bars for superyachts emerging in the next few years and we can’t wait to bring you more from the Moran Yacht & Ship New Construction Team as it progresses.

Selling Sophistication: Grace E Finds New Owner

Grace E is an Italian icon. At 73m (240′), her build-pedigree and status as the most illustrious Picchiotti superyacht on the water puts her in a league of her own. Designed by none other than Philippe Briand, it’s no surprise that today, buyer representatives at Y.CO announced her successful sale.

Born from Briand’s extended relationship with the Perini Navi / Picchiotti shipyards, Grace E boasts the title of the first motor yacht delivered in the designer’s Vitruvius brand series. When she left the shed back in 2014, she sparked conversation.

Her sheer size and volume put her on the cusp of the Top 100 largest superyachts in the world, while her performance, a testament to Perini Navi’s extended experience in developing highly efficient sailing yachts.

Fast forward to 2018 and she still holds desirable capabilities; even in an ever-developing industry. Grace E’s ability to cross the Atlantic multiple times on one tank of fuel – a result of her 7,500 mile range – is impressive. Further, she burns 15 percent less fuel than her diesel-powered comparisons: the ultimate requirement for any savvy owner both in pocket and under today’s environmental scrutiny.

However Grace E isn’t just a technological feat. Her finely crafted lines are effortlessly sophisticated and haven’t aged a day since her launch. On the inside, her interior by Parisian-studio, Remi Tessier oozes modernity with creamy colourings and a delicately decorated wellness deck that offer’s serenity and health at sea.

In essence, she’s quintessentially Italian in every sense of the phrase, with loving craftsmanship, unrivalled quality and oodles of heritage embedded into her build.

In all, Grace E marks a milestone era for her builders at the Perini Navi Group, who recently re-branded Picchiotti into the Perini Navi Motor Yachts arm. Today her 73-metres accompany that legacy alongside a multitude of desirable features that will be held in high regard for many years on.

Listed for sale with Fraser Yachts back in the final quarter of 2017, the sale of Grace E today announced by Y.CO, marks activity in the market, and is a gentle reminder that preparations are heavily underway for the summer season. While we await more details of the sale, we hope her new owners enjoy their substantial piece of Picchiotti history.
