Oprah Winfrey on $300 million 138-meter superyacht Rising Sun

Oprah Winfrey has been spotted on David Geffen’s $300 million 138-meter superyacht Rising Sun in St Barts, celebrating her 65th birthday.

New 25-meter concept in catamaran design

Amasea Yachts is a relatively new brand in yachting which presents new way to create traditional catamaran design. They build three-decked catamarans, instead of conventional two, from aluminium instead of fibreglass. She will be able to cross the Atlantic without any extra refuelling; ideal for long range exploration, she boasts sufficient dry and cold storage to remain at sea for up to 6 weeks without re-provisioning.

The first model is 25-metre, with exterior design and naval architecture by Dr. Albert Nazarov, who is a huge specialist in high-speed catamarans. Production is meant to be limited and exclusive, with a high level of customization, so the clients will be able to choose their preferable interior designer and choose among high quality materials for outfitting and for the whole construction. The idea is that the yachts will be finished at a shipyard in Italy or the Netherlands.

Amasea 84 will have an extra deck, so crew will have their own dedicated service area.  Having 3 decks instead of 2 introduces much more flexibility in terms of layout. The master suite, for example, can be on the main or lower deck and the yacht is designed with two galleys: one for guest use and a smaller one for the crew.

For the production, Amasea Yachts is setting up its own shipyard in Turkey. There, the hull and superstructure in 5083 aluminum alloy will be built. The hull will be specially reinforced for world cruising in high latitudes.

The first 25m unit will be completed in 18-20 months to complete. The subsequent build

times will be 13-16 months with a maximum production of 7 units per year, which means that the units will be highly-customized and exclusive.
