ULTRA LUXURY

It has Porsche design but it's not destined for the roads. It has Dutch knowledge but it's not for growing tulips. It's being made in Italy but it's a Monaco's creation. Confused? Dazzle yourself, instead.

<

First things first. Dynamiq is a Monaco superyacht builder. It was founded in 2011 by experienced yacht broker Sergei Dobroserdov, who gathered a team of thinkers, designers and naval architects to turn the GTT into reality.

Just to keep you enlightened, GTT means Gran Turismo Transatlantic.

The first company's launch happened last September, at the Monaco Yacht Show. It is a 39 metre yacht called Jetsetter. And a unique combination of a 21 knot top speed, an ocean-going autonomy of 3000 miles and an enormous sun deck.

For the current year, Dynamiq is preparing to launch this new GTT 115. It is a 35-meter long yacht, which integrates Porsche design cues. And it's being built in the company's shipyard, in Viareggio, on Italy's Tuscan Coast.

The company claims it is the result of the collaboration of the world's top superyacht design and construction experts, no less. And, in fact, it has all the ingredients to be an unmatchable superyacht.

It is born from the partnership between Austrian Studio Porsche – responsible for creating Porsche Design sunglasses and watches – and the well-known boat-builder Vripack, from Holland.

The Dutch builder got in charge of the round all-aluminium hull and the relevant hydrodynamic elements, while Porsche focused on the exterior styling.

Details

Under the water, a bespoke stabilization system with four electric fins and a unique set of interceptors has been fitted to quickly lift the bow clear of the water on the move and deliver a rock-solid feeling at speed.

Also the boat's shallow draft of just 1.45 m (4.75 ft) makes it perfect for cruising the Caribbean or Mediterranean seas, as well as it allows the boat to get into shallow bays and anchorages that are beyond the reach of other superyachts.

This isn't a road-going Porsche, which means power comes from two MAN diesel engines making a combined 2,426 kW (12,594 hp).

With the diesel engines running, the GTT will hit 21 knots (24 mph/39 km/h) and cover 3,400 nautical miles (3,913 mi/6,297 km) – enough to cross the Atlantic. Meanwhile, top speed is limited to a much more sedate 6 knots (7 mph/11 km/h) while running purely on electric power.

The GTT 115 has been designed to deliver a quiet, clean, luxurious experience when you aren't charging across the seas at top speed. And the twin 45-kW generators are hidden away in the bow to maintain silence at night and stop any fumes or smoke reaching people swimming nearby.

Inside the yacht, focus has been placed on luxury.

There is accommodation for six passengers and six crew below deck, where 2.15-m (7-ft) ceilings have been used to make the cabins feel more spacious. All the interior details are customisable, from carbon fibre and marble, to the leather colours.

Potential owners are able to configure their yacht from a huge range of colours, interiors and electronic systems if they so desire.

Only seven of this beauties will be built and the price for the exclusivity starts at 12 million euros.

"Our target clients might include those who are looking to downsize from larger 50- or 60- meter yachts; they are already accustomed to the highest standards, but are ready to leave behind the hassle and huge costs of owning large vessels, so they can enjoy the fun side of yacht ownership", says Dynamiq CEO, Sergei Dobroserdov.

"I simply believe we can propose something better that offers owners more choice: versatile yachts perfect for any occasion, whether it's relaxing family cruising or vibrant deck parties. Fast but with ocean-going range, easy to order and customise with top world brands", he added.
