DYNAMIQ GTT 115 HYBRID
Designed in collaboration with Studio FA Porsche, it’s no wonder the specifications of the Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid read like those of the latest German sportscar. With a fuel-efficient hybrid engine, low emissions and energy-saving, variable-speed generators, this is truly the future of sustainable luxury yachting. But the eco-friendly spec doesn’t detract from performance: the GTT 115 opens up at 21 knots, and the Hull Vane stabilisation system ensures a smooth ride whether you’re at full throttle or a gentle cruise.
The sporty-chic design meant this was an eye-catcher at its Monaco debut: the vertical bow gives it an instantly masculine appearance, and Rhodium Silver metallic paint (one of four options from the Porsche range) looks immaculate on the water. Inside, Porsche fans of the 1970s will recognise the Pepita houndstooth fabric – once found across the 911 range – and the high-gloss Macassar ebony veneers, dark brown saddle leather and Sahara Noir marble enhance the high-end automotive vibe throughout. The forward garage has space for a 15-foot tender and a jet-ski, and four outdoor spaces provide sunbathing potential whichever direction you’re travelling in.
Beam (max): 7.1m
Maximum speed: 21 knots
Price: from US$14,675,000
ARCADIA SHERPA PANTA REI III
It might look like a smiling blue whale to the casual observer, but the owner of this Arcadia Sherpa Panta Rei III saw a certain correlation between the 60-foot vessel and his favourite Rolls Royce; so much so that he asked Arcadia to match the paint.
The shipbuilder worked with Rolls Royce to create a version of its Silver Sand finish that would withstand the rigours of ocean travel and create a seamless transition between indoor and outside space. Fifty square metres of main deck and a convertible sky lounge with pop-up low-energy lights (powered by a bank of solar panels) lead into a sophisticated interior space complete with Jacaranda Chapatur carpet, FontanaArte lamps and Calacatta and Emperador marble. A spacious master suite plus additional twin-bed guest suite make clever use of space in this pocket-sized but super-stylish yacht.
