Heesen superyacht project Necto sold

Heesen Yachts has announced that the first 45m fly bridge vessel YN 17145 – Project Necto – is sold. This powerful sportster, the largest built by a Northern European shipyard, will be capable of thundering along at an impressive 30 knots thanks to her well-engineered all-aluminium semi-displacement hull and twin MTU 16V 4000 M73L engines. Speed and power combined with uncompromised luxury and comfort are the characteristics of this semi-displacement yacht that will have a range of 2.750Nm at 12 knots. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects has created the exterior lines of the yacht.

At the end of May 2014 JFA Yachts delivered WindQuest, the 1st Long Island 85, a 85-foot catamaran. This fast cruising catamaran is the first of a semi-custom “Long Island” series. The hulls are aluminium-built while the deck is in composite material. They have been assembled by bonding. This method has been chosen with the naval architect Marc Lombard, to save weight when keeping aluminium hulls. This 85’ catamaran offers spaces and performs like a 100’-110’ monohull but with a reduced draught, more comfort and increased stability. Fitted with a carbon mast and boom, her sail area is that of a high performance sailing yacht. The hydraulic winches installed on the flybridge are well-suited to manoeuvring with a reduced crew. This yacht is equipped with…

Azimut 77S, the new model in the S Collection by Azimut Yachts, is making its world debut at the autumn 2014 Cannes boat show. With four boats already sold even before its launch, the 77S sets the new standard for sport boats. Naturally, it is Made in Italy. Four boats sold in pre-launch: the Azimut 77S seems to have already taken the road to success in the wake of his younger brother Azimut 55S, the best-selling of which, two years after the launch, were produced as many as 40 units. The yacht embodies that special synthesis of stylistic innovation, technology, and functionality found in all the Italian boatyard's latest models. The pivoting stern platform for maximum flexibility, the wave-piercing vertical bow – for the first…
