Design and Technology
Super-innovative concepts already reframing the yachting landscape
<strong>IRIMARI</strong> Voted by superyacht brokers as ‘Best Yacht’ at the MYBA Charter Show, Genoa, Irimari is visually commanding and extraordinarily graceful. Built in 2015 by Sunrise Yachts with naval architects Unique Yacht Design, she was customised for transoceanic and long-distance cruising. Her hi-tensile steel hull and aluminium superstructure allow for excellent range and a top speed of 17 knots. Her striking exterior by Espen Øino has elegant lines and huge deck space. Exploiting her phenomenal volume, Focus Yacht Design created a luxuriously-appointed interior, as shown below, maximising the social spaces for entertaining and featuring a wow-factor video wall cleverly spanning two decks. Available for charter with Ocean Independence – contact one of our brokers for more information. <strong>ALIDA</strong> As one of the most advanced yachts in her class, Alida exudes striking lines and undeniable presence. The innovative Hull Vane® option harnesses waves to produce power. As the yacht moves forward, water flowing over the wing produces lift and thrust. Using conventional diesel engines, a Fast Displacement Hull and Vane can achieve a range of 4,000 miles using 30% less fuel. The beauty of Heesen technology in action; luxury, beauty, design and performance combine in perfect harmony. Ocean Independence Management can assist with knowledge and vast experience on all build and customisation superyacht requirements. Amongst Heesen’s greatest challenges is to design yachts that move through the water as smoothly as possible, with minimal vertical movement, so safeguarding comfort underway. The revolutionary Fast Displacement Hull Form has accomplished this feat better than any other. Developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects, it delivers a yacht with augmented fuel economy and hull speed. Another innovation is the dream of every yacht owner – free power. <strong>ENDURANCE 50</strong> Borne of the increasing interest among Owners to explore the far reaches of the oceans – without sacrificing style or comfort – Rossinavi’s 50m tri-deck yacht Endurance, sets the bar for future explorers. The full displacement aluminum hull, resourcefully designed by Enrico Gobbi at Team for Design in Venice, is both rigid and solid underway. An innovative diesel electrical system allows for economical cruising and exceptional maneuverability, as well as ensuring incredible stability and low noise levels. Notable by the striking floor to ceiling windows, chic neutral colour scheme and vast deck spaces, this highly efficient and fully oceanic yacht ticks every box for discerning and adventurous Owners.
