A 34-meter yacht with 15 on board has been captured on fire in Mallorca

On August 24, the 34-meter yacht D’Angleterre caught fire and drowned in the Mediterranean Sea. The fire on a yacht occurred on August 24 off the coast of Mallorca in Spain. At the time of the fire, 15 people were on board, all of them were rescued.

A video posted on the net shows how the back of the yacht is blazing with fire, and thick clouds of black smoke rise into the sky. To put out the flames and save the travelers, two ships and a helicopter were sent to the yacht. D’Angleterre was built in 2008 by Bilgin Yachts, and was converted in 2019. She was designed by Mahir Bestas with Kerim Demir developing the naval architecture. 

The vessel is designed for 12 guests and five crew members. D’Angleterre could be chartered for an amount of €56,000 per week. In August, a superyacht crashed into a pier in the Australian city of Cairns and scared dinner at a restaurant. The video, shot by one of the eyewitnesses, shows how the 46-meter-long Moatize yacht is approaching the pier, and tourists are watching in horror and screaming. It turned out that at night one of the engines was damaged at the yacht.

43-meter Baltic 142 Foiling Superyacht Canova begins sea trials 

The Finnish shipyard Baltic Yachts successfully runs a 43.3-meter sailing cruiser on the Baltic 142 Custom Canova. The world’s first sailing superyacht equipped with DSS foys was launched on May 13th.

Canova is the world’s first sliding wing yacht designed to reduce bowing, increase speed and increase comfort on board. The wing is integrated into the cassette in the yacht’s hull directly under the waterline and extends up to 6.5 meters in the leeward direction, which significantly increases the ship’s driving performance and the comfort of the crew and guests on board.

«The much anticipated trials of the Baltic 142 Canova have seen promising results, confirming expectations for her sailing performance, her diesel electric propulsion system and hydro-generation design, all intended to make her greener, quieter, more comfortable and easy to maintain.

The design was developed by specialists of the shipyard in collaboration with Gordon Kay (Gordon Kay) from Infiniti Performance Yachts and engineers from BAR Technologies. Farr Yacht Design was responsible for the marine architecture of the boat. Interiors came up with Lucio Micheletti. Initial trials of the yacht also demonstrated her appearance, reinforced by her long, smooth saloon superstructure with a deck and massive bimini extending over her large cabin. A cabin of the same level and a deck saloon create exceptional living space. The styling of the upper and lower decks of the Lucio Micheletti has led to the creation of a particularly elegant yacht.

Lamborghini-inspired boat concept from Italian Design Studio Officina Armare

Milan-based Officina Armare Design studio transferred the aesthetics of Lamborghini to the water and came up with the conceptual speed boat A43. Depending on the modification, the vessel is proposed to be equipped with Mercury Racing engines or naturally-aspirated V12 engines like the top-line Italian supercars.

What if you design a boat as if it were a powerful, high-speed supercar? The Italian design studio Officina Armare took the aesthetics and technical solutions of the Lamborghini Centenario Roadster as a model. Speedboat Officina Armare is designed in the traditional Lamborghini design with many broken lines and flat surfaces.

In the concept of the A43 Lamborghini Edition boat, this effect is immediately noticeable in the “low” matte black carbon body with black glossy inserts in the bow and yellow details, a sloping windshield, large side air intakes, aft beveled and narrow LED headlights.

Among the features of the A43 are: side bow thrusters in the bow, redirecting air flow tunnels, providing aerodynamic lifting force and air intakes for cooling motors in a carbon fiber housing. On board the vessel there is a dining table, champagne compartment, air conditioning, sofa, toilet, sink and bathroom with shower. The passenger compartment is more like a sports car interior, although there was a place in it typical of leather and wood trim for boats. Carbon here has become the main element of decoration.

Aft there is an extensive lounge area with a container for champagne. You can hide two Seabob towers under the transom, there are also mounts for bicycles or surfboards.

111-meter TIS will be the largest yacht in the history of the Monaco Yacht Show

Lurssen’s 111m/364ft motor yacht TIS has confirmed her attendance at the Monaco Yacht Show 2019, making her the largest yacht ever to go display at the event. The megayacht took this record from Oceanco Jubilee, which exhibited at the Monaco Yacht Show in 2017, surpassing it by one meter.

The vessel boasts exterior and interior styling by Andrew Winch Design and features 2 helicopter pads, a 12-metre swimming pool on the main deck aft, a resort inspired spa at beach club level, and opulent palatial staircases. Blue hull, cream superstructure – TIS has something to stand out from the rest of the protagonists of the yacht show, in addition to dimensions.

The yacht accommodates 18 people on board, which are located in nine luxuriously furnished cabins. The master apartments have a place on the upper deck. The Owner’s suite is fitted with a skylight and two fixed balconies.

There is a lot of place for rest and entertainments in the fresh air. You can have a good time swimming in the 12-meter pool, located on the aft of the upper deck, or enjoying the spacious beach club.

Lürssen also took care of the opportunity to carry as many tenders as possible with a variety of water toys. The garage is so spacious that a pair of 10- and a pair of 13-meter tenders plus a submarine are immediately placed there.
