Paul Cayard On The Perini Navi Cup Experience
With the next phase of the America’s Cup having just drawn to a close in Bermuda, we take a look back at our interview with racing legend Paul Cayard and his experiences of merging high-octane racing with the glacial luxury of the world’s finest sailing yachts at the 2015 Perini Navi Cup.
Racing on board Rosehearty, the reigning champion of the 2015 Perini Navi Cup, Paul Cayard explained how a well designed and constructed superyacht can make you feel as close to the water as any other professional sailing vessel.
“Perini Navis are the ultimate luxurious sailing yacht, and they’re large,” explains Paul Cayard. “Rosehearty is 182’ long but you’re still sailing, you’re still heeling over and feeling the spray. So you’re still feeling the elements of mother nature while you’re travelling in luxury, so it’s a great blend. The Perini family are lovely people and their personality is embedded in the boats.”
Editor’s Notes: Week Ending 16/10/2015
We’ve rounded up the seventy interviews conducted at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show this week, giving us a full snapshot of the superyacht industry as it stands today. Now, with the 25th edition of the MYS over, we’re setting our sites to Fort Lauderdale to get a closer look at the American market activity we’re hearing so much about.
It’s a ‘truth universally acknowledged’ in this industry that travel is in the DNA of the superyachting world. It’s a global community reliant on exotic destinations, the changing tides of markets everywhere and the subsequent professional hubs that are built around them. Furthermore, owning a superyacht encapsulates the go-anywhere attitude worthy of a lifetime of work leading to a floating magnum opus.
That being said I don’t own a superyacht, but I do understand the go-anywhere lifestyle after 6 years of living it – which is essentially just a different way of saying I’ve seen my fair share of airports, especially during the latter stage of this year. Travel is always a new and exciting experience regardless of the destination, and that is the core message of this digressional tale. The Netherlands gave way to Sardinia’s backdrop of the Perini Navi Cup in August which jumped to Monaco for the 25th edition of September’s show and then back to Sardinia once again for a different experience entirely.
Benetti Launches Vivace 125 Superyacht Iron Man
One of the world’s most prolific superyacht builders recently announced the launch of the new Benetti Vivace 125’ dubbed Iron Man, an advanced vessel befitting of the titular Marvel genius, billionaire, playboy and philanthropist. We take a look at the new launch through a full gallery illustrating the luxurious interiors and the exteriors of the new Vivace 125.
With a length of 38.1m and a beam of 8.3m, built in composites and carbon in the Viareggio yard, the Vivace 125′ is a three decked (plus sun deck) semi wide body yacht. The sportive exterior was designed by Stefano Righini with a widespread use of horizontal windows that accentuate the streamlining, together with a remarkable central structure in the side of the superstructure that covers the access stairway to the upper deck.
The exterior of Iron Man has four distinct areas devoted to the sea and on-board living. Astern on the upper deck we have a lounge with a custom divan over two meters long and almost five wide, while forward a swimming pool and area for relaxing are added to the traditional sun-deck.
Stepping On Board Superyacht Irimari
The 25th Monaco Yacht Show was the platform for the global launch of the brand-new superyacht Irimari. In order to honour the remarkable debut, Superyachts.com and Sunrise Yachts hosted an exclusive evening to bring VIP guests, key industry figures and representatives of luxury brands across the world together to celebrate on board.
After the launch of the 63 metre Irimari in May 2015, her attendance at the Monaco Yacht Show was a highly anticipated element of the biggest edition of the show to date. With 121 yachts on show, and a decent percentage of these yachts being new build projects, it’s hard to stand out in a crowd; however, when the sun went down and guests began to walk the passerelle, the show became just a setting to an evening on board one of the finest Turkish-built yachts on the water.
With a large number of guests attending, Irimari’s incredible width and volume created ample space for a relaxed night with champagne, colleagues and live music while her style provided the surrounding.
Mulder Design Bring Modern Elegance To 115 Metres
Pushing modern elegance across 115 metres is no easy feat, however the team behind Mulder Design have done just that with a new concept encapsulating the forward thinking ethos behind the Dutch design and naval architecture studio.
“The original brief for this concept was to draw a modern and elegant 115-metre displacement motor yacht”, explains a statement from the studio. “There were two key layout elements that were established from the outset and obviously had a profound impact on the rest of the design.”
“The yacht was to have its own heli-platform on the forward deck, with a dedicated helicopter garage below. At the other end of the yacht would be a spacious beach lounge at the stern, and this resulted in a huge area measuring 18 by 8 metres, flooded by natural light from the skylight at the bottom of the swimming pool above. These and many other cutting edge features were all to be incorporated inside and out within a calm and serene environment where relaxation is assured.”
