Lürssen Announces Launch Of 111m Project TIS

German shipyard Lürssen has announced the launch of Project TIS, a quintessential 111m yacht, scheduled for delivery in 2018.

Featuring an exterior and interior design by and project managed by Moran Yacht & Ship, the yacht is being launched just 11 months after her keel laying, and appeared in traditional fashion, making a big splash down the slipway.

With her long and well balanced sheerline, TIS is a supremely elegant yacht, despite her considerable size. 

She has a beam of 16.85 metres and boasts extraordinary volumes accommodating all of the Owner’s requirements.

TIS features six decks and offers spacious interior and exterior areas for guests, making her the perfect yacht for entertaining on a grand scale.

The sweeping staircases at the transom create an impressive entrance which sets the tone for the rest of this palatial yacht, with very generous ceiling heights, sophisticated interior decoration and the attention to detail which is the hallmark of any /Winch project.

Life Under Sail: Missy Commands the Mediternnean

Three months after her delivery, the 33-metre high performance sloop-rigged superyacht Missy is now in the Mediterranean and has already been spotted out cruising in the Bay of Palma.

The team from Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design joined the yacht last week to put Missys sailing prowess to the test.

"Missy has exceeded all my expectations and is a delight to sail; she is perfectly balanced with plenty of stability to carry her generous sail plan,” says the vessel’s designer Malcolm McKeon.

“Her deck is a very comfortable place to be with many places to relax whilst sailing, whether it be in the cockpit, on the aft sunbeds or on the comfortable teak-covered coamings. Visibility from the helm stations is uninterrupted over her sleek, low profile and yet the raised saloon offers all-round visibility whilst seated below.  Missy will live up to all expectations as a comfortable world-cruising yacht as well as a competitive regatta yacht."

Missy has a lifting keel and benefits from the latest carbon-fibre composite technology in the construction of her hull, yet she retains all the interior luxuries required for comfortable family cruising. 

The initial brief from the client was for a world-cruising yacht that was lightweight and fun to sail, as well as keeping his young family safe in a protected environment.  

The cockpit seating arrangement is an interesting aspect for a yacht of this size, allowing guests to rest unhindered, safely nestled in comfort, even during sailing manoeuvres.

The yacht has interconnecting internal spaces which provides many social areas and the largely glass canopy over the saloon gives an open and airy feel, as well as connecting the interior with the cockpit – providing another family-orientated area.   

With the cockpit area being so important, the client wanted to be able to cover it completely, at the push of a button, and also be able to stow the bimini away – so as not to obscure the aesthetics of the yacht.  In answer to this, we designed a fully-automated bimini and dodger system that, when stowed, sits flush with the superstructure and Missy’s low profile.

Missy will spend next summer cruising the Mediterranean, before embarking on a worldwide cruise.

Superyacht Project 174046 Enters Construction at Delta

Delta Marine has announced that the construction of a 53 metre (173ft) superyacht, which until now has been shrouded in secrecy, is underway.

Dubbed Project 174046, the high-performance motor yacht features an aluminium hull and composite superstructure.

“The clients were looking for a high-performance motor yacht of less than 175 feet in length with a shallow draft for Bahamas and Caribbean cruising,” says ’s Chief Naval Architect Jay Miner.

“They liked the style and build caliber of Silver Shalis and this project expands upon the technical achievements of that build.”

Seattle-based designer Jonathan Quinn Barnett, who was responsible for the interior design and collaborated with the late Bill Langan on the exterior design of Silver Shalis, was contracted from the start of the project.

The clients worked closely with the Delta Design Group and Barnett in designing the topsides, sheer, chines and stem line of Project 174046’s semi-displacement, aluminium hull. The result is a classically influenced exterior design with a hull form allowing a shallow 7.7-foot draft that has been optimized to provide increased tank capacity, more accommodation space and improved powering efficiencies and seakeeping characteristics.

Interior deck heights were carefully managed in the design of the composite superstructure

in order to maximize the yacht’s 34-foot beam and impressive interior volume, while at the same time maintaining a low, sleek and aerodynamic profile.

“Jonathan Barnett’s exterior styling gives a fresh and forward look to a proven hull design,” says Miner. Not only does the design manage to maintain its sleek shape in profile and elevations, it provides superior glazing dimensions for unobstructed sightlines — something quite unique when considering the interior volume and open deck viewing spaces with windbreaks.

“I know one might say, ‘We’ve heard all that before,’” says Barnett, “But working as a dedicated team and utilizing shared 3-dimensional computer modeling, we have maintained the elegance of a long, low yacht that is more hull in appearance than house — like many early 20th century designs — while achieving greater usable guest spaces, greater than aboard larger vessels.”

The model of Project 174046 will be on display for the first time in Delta’s booth at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

AMELS Presents a Return to Fully Custom with Polaris

With such a prolific order book and the U.S. debut of the updated support vessel Fast & Furious at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show only days away, we take a closer look at the Dutch shipyard’s striking new step toward fully custom construction.

unveiled a 97-metre (318’ft) fully custom project dubbed Polaris at the Monaco Yacht Show in September to high acclaim. With the increasing size of the fleet – with the launch of marking a milestone as the shipyard’s largest – and a new sale of an AMELS 212 Limited Editions announced this week.

Cementing their position as a world leading Northern European shipyard, AMELS has presented Polaris as one of many custom concept collaborations marking continued activity and an entirely new era of creative freedom.

“Since re-introducing our Full Custom offer to the market last year, we’ve seen a lot of enthusiasm and interest from clients, brokers and designers to work with AMELS,” says Hans Konings, AMELS Design Manager during the presentation of Polaris. “These custom concepts are a great starting point in our discussions about fully custom-built yachts.”

The new project involves the appointment of Roeland Berrevoets, Custom Building Project Manager. Roeland has managed several complex projects, including the 83-metre superyacht Here Comes The Sun.

While maintaining a certain AMELS signature, the new fully custom project reflects a new stylistic move forward marking the yard’s return to full custom as a natural step forward as it grows ever larger.

Monaco Yacht Show acted as a perfect platform to show the development of the future superyacht fleet, and we look forward to bringing you more from the docks of Fort Lauderdale.
