Rescue operation: 40m sailing superyacht My Song hauled out in Palma

The Baltic 130 Custom sailing yacht My Song that had fallen down from a cargo ship during transportation, has been hauled out in Palma de Mallorca STP shipyard. Yacht transportation company Peters & May that had been performing the carriage of My Song, appointed MCS Marine Claim Services Germany to manage the salvage operation off the coast of Menorca.

The 40-metre regatta star fell off the 138-metre cargo ship Brattinsborg on May 26. Until now, Peters & May earlier assessment of the cause of the incident remains the same. They assume, that the yacht’s cradle had collapsed. According to Peters & May statement, the cradle was owned and provided by the yacht, warrantied by the yacht for sea transport and assembled by the yacht’s crew. The system has now been discharged and is under inspection.

After the incident, Peters & May instructed Brattinsborg to continue to its original destination of Genoa, where it was due to dock on May 27, according to media. It previously departed the island of St John in the Caribbean on May 7.

Russian billionaire’s 156m superyacht Dilbar spotted in Sochi

The world’s most voluminous yacht with her gross tonnage of 15,917 GT, the 156-metre superyacht Dilbar, was spotted in Sochi, Russia, according to social media and local media. She was photographed by yachting school ProYachting.

In 2015, the vessel was launched by Lurssen for a Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov (valued by Forbes at $16 billion) as a part of his fleet, becoming the third one to bear his mother’s name, Dilbar. The fourth yacht in the world in terms of her LOA, Dilbar undoubtedly belongs on the list of the iconic superyacht designs by Espen Oeino.

With interior styling by Andrew Winch, Dilbar features a combined 3,800 square metres of living space, able to host up to 40 guests and a crew of 80.  The yacht is trademarked with a maximum speed of 22.5 knots.

Dilbar remains the largest yacht that has ever visited Russia, last time spotted in Sochi in September 2018. This time, the yacht was seen at the Imereti port, where she possessed her own pier.

Sanlorenzo introduces brand new SD96 model

Italian builder Sanloremzo has presented the brand new 28-metre SD96 yacht, the next entry-level model of the yard’s long-established SD line, during the Milan Triennale press conference. The semi-displacement superyacht model will replace the previous SD92 launched in 2007, representing the natural evolution of the stylistic features of Sanlorenzo yard.

Featuring exteriors by Bernardo Zuccon from the Italy-based Zuccon International Project, the outer appearance of SD96 relies on historical traditional patterns. Drawing inspiration from transatlantic liners of the 1930s, the designers have strived to create an elegant and classical model for modern clients.

Furthermore, the new model showcases interior designs by Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola. Again, the streamlined minimalist approach to the space combines materials that mirror the flow of the ocean.

Benetti delivers 63m superyacht Metis

Italian yard Benetti has delivered the 63-metre superyacht Metis to a German owner. Construction of this steel and aluminium superyacht, first known as Project Balance, started on speculation in 2016, at the builder’s Livorno facility. In 2017, Metis was sold through Yacht Moments, who has also overseen project management.

The modern exterior design of Metis, highlighted with a long vertical bow, has been developed by Giorgio M Casetta, while London-based studio Bannenberg & Rowell and Birgit Otte Interior Design were responsible for her innovative interiors.

With her gross tonnage of 1,190 GT, the fully custom yacht hosts 4 decks with guest accommodation on the lower deck and the main deck. The 162-square-metre master suite is located on the main deck and disposes of his and hers bathrooms, walk-in closet, office space and a large double bed. There is also a balcony that can be deployed on the port side of the cabin for the owner. In total, the superyacht can accommodate up to 12 guests in 6 cabins, as well as a crew of 13 in 9 cabins.

One of the vessel’s highlights is definitely her extensive superyacht beach club, featuring foldable sections on both sides and at the stern, creating strong sense of the interaction with the sea. Another key point, the main deck saloon, has an open plan layout, with the lounge flowing seamlessly into the dining area. Innovatively, both of these areas and the lounge area on the upper deck skew at a 30 degree angle, offering unusual vantage points for unhindered sea views.

Thanks to the asymmetric layout, space for a children’s playroom and nanny suite was found on the main deck. As to the crew of 12, that can be housed lower deck. A captain’s cabin lays aft of the helm station on the bridge deck. The latter also offers a sun deck with dining table, bar, hot tub and sun pads.

Other alluring amenities of Metis include a 55-square-metre bow deck terrace with touch-and-go helipad on the bow. Meanwhile, her overall interior design is described as modern with materials including bleached oak, carbon fibre and leather.
