Abeking secures retrofit order for Lürssen yacht<br />

The »Saint Nicolas« on its way to the Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard<br />

The Abeking & Rasmussen (A&R) shipyard is to comprehensively<br />

overhaul the super yacht »Saint Nicolas«. The refit<br />

work in Lemwerder will take eight months. The 70-metre motor<br />

© A&R<br />

yacht, built in 2007, is being commissioned by A&R Services –<br />

the shipyard’s retrofit division. According to the shipyard, the<br />

plans include an extension of the bathing platform and the installation<br />

of a new fitness room and a spa on the sun deck as part of a<br />

comprehensive refit.<br />

The project is being managed by Arrow <strong>Yachts</strong> (Monaco). The<br />

aim is to remodel both the exterior and the interior of the yacht in<br />

collaboration with renowned design studios. Pascoli International,<br />

Patrick Knowles Design and Murray & Associates are<br />

involved.<br />

»This refit project represents a significant milestone for A&R<br />

Services,« says Daniel Reichwald, Managing Director of this business<br />

unit. »Our team is committed to delivering exceptional work<br />

and exceeding the owner‘s expectations,« Reichwald continues.<br />

The refit project is expected to take eight months.<br />

A&R Services is a provider of refit and repair services for<br />

yachts, founded by the traditional shipyard in Lemwerder on the<br />

Weser. The »Saint Nicolas« was built in 2007 at the neighbouring<br />

Lürssen shipyard to a design by the well-known designer Espen<br />

Øino. With a width of 13 metres, she is one of the most voluminous<br />

ships of her size and has six decks. She reaches a speed<br />

of 15.5 knots.<br />

<br />


Mallorca becomes an industry hotspot<br />

The next edition of the Palma International<br />

Boat Show will take place from<br />

25th to 28th April <strong>2024</strong> in Palma’s Moll<br />

Vell, and will once again inaugurate the<br />

Mediterranean nautical season. The show<br />

is organised by the Institute for Business<br />

Innovation of the Balearic Islands (IDI),<br />

an entity dependent on the Regional<br />

Ministry of Enterprise, Employment and<br />

Energy, and the Balearic Yacht Brokers<br />

Association (BYBA).<br />

The event has a very complete offer including<br />

everything from all kinds of new<br />

boats to nautical products and equipment,<br />

as well as services, and marinas.<br />

Due to the organizers, a special mention<br />

should be made of the Palma Superyacht<br />

Village, a section specially designed for<br />

boats over 24 metres in length, both sailing<br />

and motorboats, and which also includes<br />

an area specialising in boat repair<br />

and maintenance, known as refit & repair,<br />

in which the leading companies in<br />

the nautical industry take part.<br />

The Palma International Boat Show has<br />

established itself as one of the essential<br />

fairs at the start of the nautical season.<br />

This is borne out by the participation figures<br />

of recent editions. In 2023, the fair<br />

had 271 participating companies and<br />

some 600 boats on display, more than 250<br />

at sea, spread over an 81,000-squaremetre<br />

exhibition site. It was also the setting<br />

for the presentation of new boat models<br />

and products on a global scale, as well<br />

as becoming the nerve centre of the sector<br />

for four days. The last edition was characterised<br />

by a very full agenda of events,<br />

During the last show 600 boats were exhibited<br />

such as activities to promote training and<br />

employment in the nautical sector. In addition,<br />

the Palma Superyacht Village area<br />

hosted the Innovation Corner, a space<br />

dedicated to emerging companies focused<br />

on innovation in the nautical world, especially<br />

with digitalisation and sustainability<br />

solutions.<br />

SPOTLIGHT ON ...<br />

German shipyards triumph<br />

at the »Yacht Oscars«<br />

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) Awards are<br />

regarded as the Oscars of the yachting industry. They<br />

are presented annually during the Fort Lauderdale International<br />

Boat Show; the winners are chosen by an independent<br />

jury of industry representatives. At the Ritz Carlton<br />

in the American coastal town, the current ceremony<br />

turned into a showdown for two German shipyards.<br />

In the »Best in Motor 1,500

SPOTLIGHT ON ...<br />

hard work of our team.« Kleymann had to orchestrate<br />

the final phase of completion during the height of the<br />

coronavirus pandemic and organize the final outfitting<br />

in shifts. »Soaring« or »Starlust« has an impressive library,<br />

a bar with an integrated whirlpool and a beach<br />

club with an integrated spa.<br />

Just a few hundred metres away from Abeking & Rasmussen,<br />

Lürssen was able to celebrate three ISS Awards.<br />

The 115-metre-long »Apho« won the categories »Yacht<br />

of the year«, »Best Interior Motor« and »Best in Motor<br />

5,000+ GT«. Nuvolari-Lenard designed »Apho« for a<br />

customer who has been loyal to the shipyard for many<br />

years.<br />

The crew of the 93-metre-long »Mayan Queen«,<br />

which was also built in Germany (by Blohm + Voss), received<br />

the »Distinguished Crew Award«. Their rescue of<br />

over 100 migrants whose boat had been wrecked was<br />

recognized by the audience with standing ovations. <br />

Fuel cell laboratory opened<br />

Last but not least is the Innovation Laboratory that has been up<br />

and running at Lürssen since last year, where the shipyard is<br />

simulating and testing the integration and operation of a Marine<br />

Hybrid Fuel Cell System on board a yacht powered by methanol.<br />

The testing is being conducted under real life ambient conditions<br />

and with all required auxiliary systems. This demonstration plant<br />

can be considered the final preparation to bring fuel cells on<br />

board a yacht successfully. The delivery and integration of their<br />

first fuel cell system is scheduled for the middle of <strong>2024</strong> for project<br />

»Cosmos«. The design phase has been completed and<br />

Lürssen is the first shipyard to receive the necessary certificates<br />

from Lloyd’s Register, for the integration of the Methanol-powered<br />

fuel cell and the related shipboard systems in June 2023. »Cosmos«<br />

was launched in March 2023 and the outfitting phase is<br />

now in full progress.<br />

After a building break »REV Ocean« will leave her shipyard with a 12 metre extension. Her LOA will be nearly 195 metre<br />

acquired the 71-metre »Skat« from Charles Simonyi. A vessel in<br />

his possession for two decades, constructed by Lürssen and designed<br />

by Espen Øino – mirroring the design team of »REV<br />

Ocean«. Simonyi later replaced »Skat« with the 20-metre »Norn«,<br />

maintaining continuity with the same shipyard and designer.<br />

While construction on »REV Ocean« experienced a pause in<br />

2021, the shipyard has confirmed the preservation of the vessel‘s<br />

original vision with plans to enhance its functionality. This includes<br />

a midship extension of 12 metres, elongating the existing<br />

hull for increased buoyancy and incorporating lightweight materials<br />

to replace some of the steel. The vessel will feature a reorganized<br />

layout, providing more space and heightened scientific<br />

capacity in its primary hangar.<br />

Kjell Inge Røkke‘s vision for »REV Ocean« transcends a conventional<br />

superyacht, positioning it as a platform for knowledge<br />

acquisition. Welcoming researchers, environmental groups, and<br />

institutions on board, Røkke envisions the vessel as a hub for developing<br />

innovative solutions to address challenges and opportunities<br />

related to the seas.<br />

Despite its collaboration with leading superyacht designer<br />

Espen Øino, »REV Ocean« won‘t be classified as a traditional<br />

superyacht. Focused on advanced oceanography, the vessel will<br />

be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to survey marine<br />

environments comprehensively. The extension will facilitate a<br />

dedicated submarine hangar, a HiPAP system for subsea equipment<br />

tracking, an additional science lab, and facilities for 3D<br />

printing and onboard metalwork. In alignment with environmental<br />

consciousness, »REV Ocean« is designed for optimal fuel<br />

efficiency, featuring an energy recovery rudder system, mediumspeed<br />

engines, a direct-drive diesel-electric propulsion system,<br />

and an exhaust cleaning system. The increase in size, though<br />

leading to a 32% rise in fuel capacity and range, is anticipated to<br />

have a relatively minor impact on fuel consumption.<br />

Upon delivery, »REV Ocean« will be available for charter, with<br />

plans for its maiden voyage involving a journey from the Arctic<br />

via the Norwegian coast, followed by a route through the United<br />

States and South America to reach the Southern Ocean.<br />

The expected delivery by VARD is set for February 2025, with<br />

operational readiness projected for Q4 2026. VARD will undertake<br />

the rebuild at its facilities in Norway, and final completion<br />

activities will occur at a location to be determined closer to delivery.<br />

What‘s coming in <strong>2024</strong>?<br />

The deliveries of numerous superyacht projects<br />

in the 80-to-120-metre range have been announced for this year. <strong>HANSA</strong> <strong>Yachts</strong><br />

takes a look at some of the most interesting projects<br />

© Feadship<br />

Feadship 825<br />

The 76-metre project 825 from the Dutch<br />

shipyard Feadship was launched in 2022.<br />

The exterior design and construction<br />

were created by De Voogt Naval Architects,<br />

while the interior was designed by<br />

Gilles & Boissier. Project 825 has an exceptionally<br />

large aft deck with an infinity<br />

pool and can accommodate up to 12 passengers<br />

and a crew of 17. The bridge deck<br />

offers a spa area with sauna, massage<br />

room and gym. With two 2,000 hp MTU<br />

engines, the Feadship yacht has a cruising<br />

speed of 12 knots and a top speed of 15.4<br />

knots. She is scheduled to leave the shipyard<br />

in November.<br />

Freire 105 Explorer<br />

The Spanish shipyard Freire announced<br />

the construction of a 105-metre-long explorer<br />

yacht in 2021, the keel of which was<br />

laid a year later and which is due to be<br />

launched in <strong>2024</strong>. Little is yet known<br />

about the project all that is known is that<br />

the Freire 105 Explorer will have a volume<br />

of around 4,000 GT and a very efficient<br />

hull. Once completed, the superyacht will<br />

be the third largest vessel in the shipyard‘s<br />

portfolio. Two other Freire yachts are already<br />

underway with their owners.<br />

Project 825 from Feadship is for sale. Burgess is listing the vessel for 169 million Euro<br />

Turquoise »Toro«<br />

»Toro« is a 79-metre-long project by Turquoise<br />

from Tuzla, Turkey. Harrison<br />

Eidsgaard is responsible for the interior<br />

and exterior design, while the construction<br />

is by Turquoise itself. The neoclassical<br />

exterior of the yacht is complemented<br />

by a serene and calm interior.<br />

The special features of »Toro« include an<br />

underwater lounge. With a volume of<br />

2,050 GT, the yacht has a capacity for 14<br />

guests and 21 crew members.<br />

Turquoise »Vento«<br />

The 87-metre »Vento«, whose exterior<br />

was designed by H2 Yacht Design, is also<br />

being built by Turquoise in Turkey. As the<br />

longest yacht built by Turquoise, it will be<br />

the shipyard‘s flagship when completed.<br />

Onboard amenities include a 6.5-metre<br />

infinity pool, a touch-and-go helipad and<br />

a huge bow area that functions as a basketball<br />

court or a large sun deck with outdoor<br />

cinema<br />

Lürssen »Ace 21«<br />

A 78-metre motor yacht with the project<br />

name »Ace 21« is currently being fitted<br />

out at the German Lürssen shipyard after<br />

the hull was built at Stahlbau Nord in<br />

Bremerhaven. Further details are not yet<br />

known, except that the yacht will as usual<br />

be powered by two diesel engines and<br />

have a volume of 2,500 GT. The ship‘s<br />

architecture was designed by Lürssen<br />

itself.<br />

Feadship 712<br />

Feadship‘s second current project for<br />

<strong>2024</strong>, Project 712, measures 82.90 metres<br />

in length and has an exterior design by<br />

Sinot Yacht Architecture & Design, while<br />

the structural calculations are by De<br />

Voogt Naval Architects. The yacht has a<br />

volume of around 2,000 GT and stands<br />

out with its straight bow and clear exterior<br />

lines. Future guests will have plenty<br />

of space for sunbathing and al-fresco<br />

dining on the three stepped aft decks.<br />

Yachtley N91<br />

The Yachtley shipyard, based in Turkey, is<br />

currently working on a 91-metre project<br />

called N91. The project is the shipyard‘s<br />

largest to date. The exterior design and<br />

naval architecture are by Alpha Marine<br />

Ltd Yacht Designers & Naval Architects.<br />

The design studio had already designed<br />

the superyacht 80-metre »Elements« in<br />

2<strong>01</strong>9, which was also built by Yachtley.<br />

Damen Custom Hybrid 75<br />

The 75-metre Custom Hybrid 75 explorer<br />

yacht, which is currently being<br />

built by Damen <strong>Yachts</strong>, also comes from<br />

Dutch production. The shipyard itself<br />

contributed the ship‘s architecture, while<br />

the exterior design was created by Michael<br />

Leach Design. The Custom Hybrid<br />

75 was conceived as a milestone in the explorer<br />

yacht segment and features a hybrid<br />

propulsion system designed to enable<br />

emission-free travel. It can accommodate<br />

up to 12 guests.<br />

From a small shop<br />

to a refit giant<br />

Derecktor is one of the best-known<br />

shipyards in the USA. The refit specialists<br />

with four locations on the east coast are<br />

now also pushing into the European<br />

market. Joel Shine, Chief Commercial<br />

Officer, and John Koenig, Chief Marketing<br />

and Sales Officer, provide insights into<br />

the set-up<br />

Derecktor is one of the best-known names in the American yacht<br />

industry in particular. Could you perhaps briefly outline the beginnings<br />

of the shipyard for our European readers?<br />

John Koenig: In 1947, shortly after returning from serving in the<br />

Pacific for the US Navy, Bob Derecktor followed his dream of<br />

building boats. He opened a small shop just outside New York<br />

City on Long Island Sound with a small handful of craftsmen and<br />

started the journey to create what today is Derecktor Shipyards.<br />

At first, the yard built small wooden sailboats and launches for<br />

local customers. Quickly the business grew to building power<br />

boats, commercial craft and larger sailboats for an expanding<br />

customer base. In the early 1960s, the yard became a pioneer in<br />

lightweight construction, a skill it has near perfected over the<br />

years. This led to larger boats of more variety – and eventually to<br />

the Derecktor of today.<br />

How has the business developed since those early days?<br />

Joel Shine: In the mid 1960s, Bob Derecktor realized that South<br />

Florida was an emerging yachting market. Acquiring land on the<br />

Dania Cut-Off Canal adjacent to Ft. Lauderdale, he began the development<br />

of what is now Derecktor Florida. The need for expert<br />

service and repair kept the yard busy and growing, and it established<br />

itself as one of the forces that made Ft. Lauderdale »The<br />

Yachting Capitol of the World«.<br />

Today, the yard features a 900-ton Cimolai hoist, a protected<br />

(hurricane hole) basin and the expert work and service Derecktor<br />

is known for. In New York, Derecktor kept building, launching<br />

innovative vessels ranging from the Americas Cup Winner Stars<br />

& Stripes ‘87, to the world’s fastest passenger ferry, to Cakewalk,<br />

the largest yacht ever built in the U.S. (which was launched in<br />

Connecticut in 2<strong>01</strong>1). Today the NY yard continues leading the<br />

way in new construction with a series of hybrid electric commercial<br />

catamarans.<br />

In Florida, the 2020 establishment of Derecktor Fort Pierce<br />

(DFP), just north of Palm Beach, opened new markets to Derecktor<br />

as well as to the U.S. industry as a whole. On the site of an historic<br />

port, the new yard offers (9m controlling depth) direct access<br />

from the Atlantic with no bridges, quayside space for 100<br />

metres plus vessels and the largest yacht mobile lift in the world –<br />

a 1.500-ton Cimolai Hoist. Deep-draft sailing yachts and very<br />

large motor vessels now a have a convenient choice of yard close<br />

to the huge variety of skilled subcontractors in South Florida.<br />

When we talk about the current Derecktor line-up. What key figures<br />

can you give us? How is the business divided between the<br />

four locations?<br />

Shine: New York continues to be the primary new construction<br />

yard, with its proximity to the New York commercial market and<br />

77 years of vessel building expertise. The yard also does substantial<br />

amounts of repair and refit work for the NY fleet of ferries,<br />

pilot boats and other craft, as well as the yacht market on Long Island<br />

Sound.<br />

Maine is a marina and boat yard in a beautiful cove about 45<br />

minutes by car from Portland. It offers dockage for boats up to 30<br />

metres, along with hauling, service and winter storage. It also features<br />

houseboat rentals and an excellent onsite pub and restaurant.<br />

The Florida yards in Dania (Ft. Lauderdale) and Ft. Pierce are<br />

primarily engaged in the repair, refit, and storage of large yachts<br />

Derecktor‘s shipyard in Fort Pierce has one of the highest capacity mobile hoists in the world<br />

and super yachts, with Dania handling vessels up to approximately<br />

65 metres and 9.00 tons, and Ft. Pierce vessels to 100<br />

metres plus and 1.500 tons.<br />

The capacity of Fort Pierce sounds enormous. Is there anything<br />

comparable in the USA or even in Europe?<br />

Koenig: Derecktor Fort Pierce has one of the highest capacity mobile<br />

boat hoists in the world, a Cimolai machine rated at 1.500 short tons.<br />

Our future development plans include a floating drydock to further<br />

increase our capabilities to service vessels over 1.500 tons.<br />

Which customers are you focusing on for Fort Pierce? Is it about<br />

minimum lengths or minimum stays?<br />

Shine: There are no minimums per se; we have hauled nearly<br />

every type of vessel from 15 metres to 73 metres, with work<br />

scopes ranging from dockside services and FTZ dockage all the<br />

way to full refit and large paint jobs.<br />

European owners often stop at refit yards in the Mediterranean<br />

before or after the Caribbean season. How can Derecktor »take a<br />

slice« of this cake?<br />

Koenig: A deep-water inlet, no air draft restrictions, and pier<br />

make Fort Pierce one of the few places on the entire east coast<br />

of US and the Caribbean that can handle multiple 60+ metre<br />

motor yachts, and we are the only shipyard in the region that<br />

can accommodate very large sailing yachts.<br />

Proximity to Fort Lauderdale enables us to access, services, and<br />

materials from the heart of the super yacht industry on this side<br />

of the Atlantic. Virtually any task achievable in Fort Lauderdale<br />

can seamlessly be brought to Fort Pierce.<br />

John Koenig<br />

Joel Shine<br />

What services do you offer in Fort Pierce? Which yachts have<br />

already been on site?<br />

Koenig: Without giving names; We are a full-service shipyard,<br />

having hauled yacht up to 1.320 tons. Additionally, we have provided<br />

dockside refit services for yachts up to 117 metres. Our<br />

range of services includes everything from simple bottom jobs to<br />

full refits, facilitated through our in-house trades and a network<br />

of over 120 contractors.<br />

How do you argue against reservations about hurricane risk in<br />

Florida?<br />

Shine: Hurricanes are a risk, but mainly an insurance issue. Derecktor<br />

has lived with hurricanes for 50+ years in Florida. Tropical<br />

cyclones and intense weather are something we are accustomed<br />

to mitigating and living with. Last year, we had a 73<br />

metres on the hard while a hurricane passed directly over Fort<br />

Pierce with no accident or damage. If an insurance carrier for<br />

one of our customers requires an extra premium to be here in<br />

hurricane season, we are willing to help cover that expense.<br />

For crews, the refit base is sometimes crucial. What can Fort<br />

Pierce offer?<br />

Koenig: Fort Pierce offers a more relaxed »Old Florida« vibe, a welcome<br />

change for many captains and crews tired of the busyness in<br />

Fort Lauderdale. Despite the laid-back atmosphere, the downtown<br />

area still offers plenty of activities. Great restaurants and bars are<br />

developing and polishing this platform, ABB firmly believes that<br />

DC will be part of Shipping 4.0.<br />

Due to fast high voltage energy transmission, naval architects<br />

may now design complex systems with several battery rooms<br />

scattered across the hull to optimize weight distribution. This<br />

permits one to install light and compact drives without overweighting<br />

the aft. In addition, it gives designers more freedom<br />

in terms of utilizing the space for beach clubs and other guest<br />

areas.<br />

Traditional shaft drives are still the number one choice for<br />

most large hybrid yachts. Shafts are usually coupled with<br />

liquid-cooled permanent magnet propulsion motors. There are<br />

several ways to increase total efficiency, and multiple companies<br />

offer their know-how. For instance, Baltic <strong>Yachts</strong> and<br />

Bering <strong>Yachts</strong> have chosen Danfoss Editron as a supplier of key<br />

elements for propulsion systems on their hybrid Baltic 110 and<br />

Bering 145 respectively. Southern Wind teamed up with BAE<br />

Systems which equipped SW96 Nyumba and SW108 Gelliceaux<br />

with state-of-the-art HybriGen diesel electric propulsion<br />

system with DC Link (650 V) providing substantial fuel savings.<br />

This list can go on and on since the market niche of hybrid<br />

and electric propulsion is well populated with more and more<br />

players from commercial and offshore segments offering their<br />

solutions to yacht builders.<br />

The compact, air-cooled Cube system from Lehmann aims vessels<br />

with limited technical space<br />

scalable to several megawatt hours and use LFP cells that are not<br />

prone to fire in case of thermal runaway event.<br />

MG Energy Systems caters leisure and commercial markets, offering<br />

batteries, BMSs, and ESS for various needs. Their new RS<br />

230 liquid-cooled module with integrated exhaust system features<br />

third generation LiFePO4 cells with a total nominal energy<br />

of 11,8 kWh (51 V) and allows stacking in high-voltage strings up<br />

(to 900 V). The company is going to start sales in the second half<br />

of <strong>2024</strong> when RS 230 receives DNV approval.<br />

ESS is much more than just adding a battery pack on board. As<br />

a key element of the ship power system, it provides not only storage,<br />

peak shaving, and spinning reserve but also seamless automatic<br />

energy flows between producing and consuming equipment.<br />

There are two main architectures of electrical systems on<br />

modern vessels: AC distribution network with DC links and DC<br />

grid and. Depending on selected batteries setup, the output voltage<br />

varies in the range of 700–1100 V. With recent advancements<br />

in DC fault protection methods and increase in overall grid<br />

safety, the latter architecture has started to be seen on yachts.<br />

One of the notable examples is »Artefact« (Nobiskrug, 80m),<br />

where ABB integrated electric Azipod drives with Corvus Orca<br />

ESS (610 kWh) and Caterpillar 3516 generators through their<br />

highly customizable Onboard DC Grid. After over a decade of<br />

Ten years of R&D work<br />

Among the recent additions to electric drives one could mention<br />

ABB Dynafin, the modern reincarnations of almost century old<br />

Voith Schneider propeller (VSP). ABB engineers claim unprecedented<br />

efficiency increase that they have managed to achieve<br />

after ten years of R&D work. In many ways Dynafin is similar to<br />

eVSP, introduced by Voith in 2020; however, it features significant<br />

improvements of cyclorotor design. ABB optimized the shape of<br />

the vertical blades and used electric motors to instantly control<br />

them. The ECUs individually tune the angle of attack for each<br />

blade and can change their motion path in every cycle if needed.<br />

Basically, Dynafin is a smart VSP with stated efficiency of 85% in<br />

undisturbed flow. It benefits from lower noise and vibration levels<br />

compared to shaft drives due to lack of any mechanical gear<br />

assemblies and relatively low-pressure pulsation. According to<br />

ABB, the modular design of Dynafin guarantees unobstructed<br />

access to all components for easy maintenance and fast repairs.<br />

The prototype is expected to be available in 2025. Once ABB establish<br />

production line it is going to introduce several models in<br />

the range of 1–4MW aimed at small to medium size vessels including<br />

yachts.<br />

In general, electric propulsion systems, fuel cells, and batteries<br />

are taking a leap forward in the whole maritime industry. The<br />

next awaited improvements include switching from liquid to<br />

solid electrolytes, which would increase energy density of batteries,<br />

as well as the wide spread of methanol fuel cells. Moreover,<br />

ongoing digitalization of power grids leads to implementing<br />

promising energy exchange concepts where battery equipped vehicles<br />

and vessels are seen not only as recipients but also as donors.<br />

At the same time suppliers still spend considerable time and<br />

effort to achieve type approval status for their products, especially<br />

for those containing large high-capacity batteries. This slows<br />

down incremental improvement aligned with model years, so the<br />

evolution of marine ESS lags somewhat behind. But it will catch<br />

up thanks to strong tailwinds.<br />

Stop the motion<br />

Modern yachts and superyachts have high tech, powerful stabilizers that reduce up to 90%<br />

of the roll from waves and weather. They are complex, and can be expensive, but they<br />

make sense for lots of yachts<br />

The science of ship motion is well developed<br />

and deals mostly with two<br />

key parameters: the shape and dimensions<br />

of the hull. Today engineers possess<br />

a variety of tools such as 2D strip theory<br />

to numerically estimate and predict motion<br />

with rather quick calculations. As a<br />

result, academic research often translates<br />

into applied characteristics, such as the<br />

yacht comfort index developed by Feadship<br />

and Marin.<br />

There are numerous motion control<br />

systems around. They range from passive<br />

keels, fixed fins, and anti-roll tanks to<br />

sophisticated moving appendages or<br />

gyroscopic devices operated by computers.<br />

Effective first-order ship motions<br />

damping is paramount in case of large<br />

luxury motor yachts, since their passengers<br />

always seek uncompromised comfort<br />

without any motion nuisance. This is<br />

especially important for charter vessels,<br />

where zero-speed stabilization is a must.<br />

Active fins remain the main choice for<br />

yachts over 30m with relatively slender<br />

hulls and narrow waterline beam. Depending<br />

on length, one or two pairs are<br />

usually installed to reduce roll while<br />

underway and on anchor. There is no<br />

universal »one-size-fits-all« solution. To<br />

figure out optimum fin size and shape<br />

naval architects consider various parameters,<br />

such as displacement, roll period,<br />

windage, and wight distribution on<br />

early design stage. It is important to know<br />

Stabilis Electra system<br />

© CMC Marine<br />

that roll motion damping systems normally<br />

deliver no more than 45% of critical<br />

damping value due to possible integration<br />

issues.<br />

Numerous manufacturers offer a broad<br />

range of systems with various space<br />

requirements and cost. Historically, fin<br />

stabilizers with hydraulic actuators dominated<br />

the market; however, the balance<br />

has significantly shifted towards electrically<br />

driven models over past decade.<br />

Alessandro Capiello, engineer and<br />

founder of CMC Marine, is purposely<br />

working up this niche. He does not like<br />

noisy and power-hungry hydraulic fins<br />

with their short motion range. According<br />

to Capiello, electric stabilizers are lighter<br />

and quieter (


© SKF<br />

ship models that are meant for displacement<br />

and semi-displacement hulls.<br />

The compact LR180 fins has 3,9m 3 blades<br />

with 15 kW actuators, while the twice as<br />

powerful LR250 is substantially larger<br />

(6,5 or 7m 3 ) but still retains a relatively<br />

small footprint inside the hull. Both<br />

models support four-fin arrangement<br />

and cover the range of yachts from 50 to<br />

100m in length. The next generation of<br />

products, Stabilis 5.0, will have a finetuned<br />

smart control algorithm that considers<br />

sea conditions to provide immediate<br />

feedback on roll motion reduction.<br />

Capiello hopes that old beliefs will soon<br />

go away and electric stabilizers will become<br />

standard, at least in the yachting industry.<br />

However, it seems that hydraulic<br />

competitors are not ready to give up and<br />

lose ground yet.<br />

Key products of SKF Marine include<br />

energy-optimized hydraulic retractable<br />

fins: type Z provides roll damping both<br />

underway and on anchor, while type S is<br />

optimized for stabilization on the move.<br />

When not used, these fins are neatly<br />

housed in hull pockets with optional inflatable<br />

covers that prevent the laminarturbulent<br />

transition. Low drag translates<br />

into fuel savings and lower emissions.<br />

Type Z and S fins feature anti-vortex tip<br />

fairings which increase lift, allowing<br />

smaller fin area. To reduce the loading of<br />

the power system, SKF added battery<br />

support that lowers peak load and noise<br />

levels while improving the dynamic response<br />

of the system. Fin control units<br />

allow fully automatic operations based<br />

on adaptive algorithms, as well as custom<br />

modes with single-fin or twin-fin use.<br />

In order to keep up with current<br />

trends, SKF Marine has joined to electric<br />

revolution and developed type EFZ system<br />

specifically designed for 50+ m<br />

yachts. It boasts all benefits of electric fins<br />

including 360° rotation, small footprint,<br />

low noise and vibration levels (30% and<br />

80% less correspondingly). Moreover,<br />

non-retractable type EFZ offers automatic<br />

walk back function which prevents<br />

forward movement of the hull at zero<br />

speed, and automatic heading assist. Last<br />

but not least, it allows to recuperate motion<br />

energy to power the actuators or<br />

even feed it into on-board ESS. EFZ supports<br />

both DC and AC network integration,<br />

requires less maintenance compared<br />

to hydraulic units, and suits well<br />

for retrofit installations.<br />

Quantum Group offers three stabilizing<br />

systems based on different principles.<br />

Dyna-Foil uses retractable foils that extend<br />

underway and act as an airplane flap<br />

creating the lift force and compensating<br />

the roll motion. At zero speed, foils perform<br />

precise swings (range 140°) like we<br />

do with our arms to control posture when<br />

floating in the water. Dyna-Foil is available<br />

as a pocketed or non-pocketed version<br />

to fit for various hull geometries.<br />

MAGlift stabilizers are based on the<br />

Magnus effect created by spinning rotors.<br />

Underway they are kept in certain position<br />

and change the direction of rotation<br />

to create necessary lift. When at anchor,<br />

swinging motion is added to effectively<br />

dampen the roll. Finally, semi-retractable<br />

Quantum XT rotating fins feature extending<br />

»blades« that enlarge the total fin<br />

area by 30% for more effective stabilization<br />

at zero speed. All these systems are<br />

hydraulic and have been installed on<br />

many super yachts from renown shipyards,<br />

including Lürssen, Oceanco, and<br />

Nobiskrug.<br />

MAN Engines strengthens partnership with Next Yacht Group<br />

The renowned engine manufacturer<br />

MAN Engines continues its successful<br />

collaboration with Next Yacht Group<br />

Srl and will act as the exclusive supplier<br />

for new models of the Maiora and AB<br />

<strong>Yachts</strong> brands. The latest development,<br />

the 30-litre V12X yacht engine with an<br />

impressive 2,200 hp (1,618 kW), will<br />

power the powerful AB95 with a threemotor<br />

system. »For our latest coup –<br />

the AB95 – we are relying on nothing<br />

less than the latest generation of engines<br />

from MAN Engines,« says Giorgio<br />

Mattei, Vice President of Next Yacht<br />

Group.<br />

Since 2<strong>01</strong>9, through its Italian Importer<br />

Ranieri Tonissi SpA, MAN Engines<br />

has been a premium supplier of MAN<br />

V12–2000 engines for the three-engine<br />

system of the AB100, which underlines<br />

the long-standing and successful partnership<br />

between MAN Engines and Next<br />

Yacht Group.<br />

»We are extremely pleased to deepen<br />

our collaboration with Next Yacht<br />

Group. MAN engines have always stood<br />

for exceptional quality, high fuel efficiency<br />

and an excellent power-toweight<br />

ratio. In this way, they contribute<br />

exactly to the common denominator of<br />

the two different and unmistakable<br />

product lines Maiora and AB <strong>Yachts</strong>,«<br />

says Reiner Roessner, Head of Sales at<br />

MAN Engines.<br />

The latest generation of yacht engines from MAN Engines – the MAN V12X-2200 – will power the<br />

AB95 in a three-engine system<br />

MAN Engines supplies a wide range of<br />

V12 engines in the upper power range<br />

with 1,900, 2,000 and 2,200 hp (1,397,<br />

1,471 and 1,618 kW) to Next Yacht Group.<br />

These are for Maiora 30 and Maiora<br />

Exuma series, and for the AB80, AB100<br />

and the brand-new AB95 and AB110<br />

models. The expansion of the cooperation<br />

solidifies the position of both companies<br />

as pioneers and an integral part of the<br />

yachting industry and stands for the highest<br />

quality, innovative technology and superior<br />

performance. The successful partnership<br />

between MAN Engines and Next<br />

Yacht Group shows that joint efforts for<br />

Sustainable solutions<br />

Mets was again a hub for new yachting equipment. Much of the focus here was on<br />

electromobility and alternative drive technologies, which was reflected not least in the<br />

nominations for the annual Dame Awards<br />

© Maservis<br />

Many of the products nominated for the Design Awards were<br />

in the field of electromobility. The main prize also went to<br />

the Finnish company Oceanvolt, which presented the HighPower<br />

ServoProp 25, an electric sail drive that can generate energy while<br />

sailing. The jury praised the 25 kW electric drive as an excellently<br />

designed and constructed product that should significantly advance<br />

the electrification of propulsion solutions in the 45 to<br />

70-foot sailboat segment. The system can generate 5 kW of power<br />

when the yacht is moving at ten knots of boat speed. The simple<br />

installation and ease of maintenance for long-distance sailing<br />

were also rated positively by the jury.<br />

One of the favorites for the main prize at the Dame Awards was<br />

the interesting EcoCube project by the Croatian company Maservis.<br />

This is a floating, solar-powered collection station for waste<br />

and wastewater from ships, consisting of natural fibers and bioepoxy<br />

resin. »We have noticed that all types of waste are being discharged<br />

into the sea because there are no suitable collection points<br />

available,« says the company. »The only collection points for solid<br />

waste are in marinas and these are usually overloaded.« Maservis<br />

wants to offer a solution to this problem with the EcoCube..<br />

Technologies for a green future<br />

Away from the spotlights of the awards, there was also plenty for<br />

electrical and sustainability enthusiasts to see in the Start-Up Pavilion<br />

area. For example, the company Open Waters Solar presented<br />

its next generation of marine solar panels – highly efficient<br />

solar cells embedded in a glass fiber/epoxy composite laminate<br />

and protected by a UV-resistant coating. This protective layer<br />

Solar-powered collection station from Maservis, one of the favorites for the<br />

Dame awards at Mets<br />

makes the solar panels extremely robust and even easy to walk on,<br />

allowing a wider choice of suitable installation locations on<br />

board. Thanks to the lightweight materials used and optimized<br />

construction methods, Open Waters Solar panels are significantly<br />

lighter than conventional solar modules. Thanks to the<br />

high adaptability and flexibility of the solar panels, the system can<br />

be tailored to any yacht size.<br />

The wind turbines from Dutch company Flag Turbines were<br />

also an eye-catcher. The innovative Flag Turbines harness wind<br />

energy in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way. Unlike<br />

conventional wind turbines, the Flag Turbines system operates<br />

at lower rotational speeds and thus avoids noise and vibrations,<br />

while at the same time being able to deliver a large<br />

amount of energy thanks to variable blade adjustment. The device<br />

is available in various sizes and can be installed on both<br />

smaller boats and large yachts.<br />

The start-up Pascal Technologies provided a breath of fresh air<br />

in the field of electromobility with its AirHull solution. The Air-<br />

Hull is a next-generation Surface Effect Ship (SES) solution that<br />

creates an air cavity between the water and the ship. According to<br />

38 <strong>HANSA</strong> YACHTS <strong>01</strong> | <strong>2024</strong>


the company, the technology significantly reduces energy consumption<br />

at high speeds compared to conventional hulls, enabling<br />

electric boats to have a much greater range. The system<br />

uses a blower to force air into the cavity under the vessel, creating<br />

an overpressure that partially lifts the boat out of the water. This<br />

technology is similar to conventional SES solutions – but Pascal<br />

AirHull is unique in that it uses a special hull design and a flexible<br />

flap system to keep the air inside the cavity. The system is also<br />

controlled by a ride control system that ensures the boat moves<br />

smoothly and efficiently.<br />

In view of the guidelines against biofouling recently issued by<br />

the IMO, products such as the antifouling cover from the French<br />

company K-ren and the Hullbot cleaning robot from the company<br />

of the same name also attracted a great deal of interest. According<br />

to the manufacturer, the antifouling cover – a type of<br />

coating that is pulled over the hull of a boat while it is in the marina<br />

– makes it possible to avoid the regular maintenance costs that<br />

would otherwise be incurred to remove fouling from the hull. At<br />

the same time, the coating offers a sustainable alternative to environmentally<br />

harmful antifouling coatings and is 100% recyclable.<br />

The cleaning robot from the company hullbot takes a slightly<br />

different approach to the problem of biofouling. This is a fully<br />

automated and autonomous cleaning system that is able to inspect,<br />

record and remove fouling from the hull of a boat independently.<br />

The H6 drone consists of cost-efficient, modular hardware<br />

and a special underwater vision system that enables precise<br />

localization and navigation.<br />

Build lighter<br />

Meanwhile, the start-up Shapewave presented a completely new<br />

and disruptive technology at Mets. The company has developed a<br />

system for calculating and manufacturing complex internal<br />

structures for inflatable parts using proprietary robots. »We develop<br />

and manufacture inflatable structural parts using our proprietary<br />

Shapewave tool chain. 3D CAD model in, assembled<br />

part out. This is completely new in the industry,« explained Rudo<br />

Enserink, founder of shapewave. »We can create all shapes, colors,<br />

prints, and weight and precision classes, while our software<br />

allows us to evaluate the outcome before anything is built. Our<br />

parts are lighter, more durable and more robust than anything<br />

comparable.« For example, the company can close the gap between<br />

soft sails and rigid batten wings made of carbon. Inflatable<br />

sails, for example, have the advantage that you can simply deflate<br />

them after use and roll them up for transportation.<br />

Composite material specialist Hexcel also contributed to the topic<br />

of lightweight construction. The company presented its latest developments<br />

in the field of lightweight material technology with the materials<br />

IM2C and HM54. »By using our experience in carbon fiber<br />

production and the development of resin systems, we have created<br />

two outstanding products for the marine sector,« said Claude Despierres,<br />

Hexcel Vice President. The two new materials are intended<br />

to provide high-performance yet lightweight building blocks for designers<br />

and engineers working on high-performance structures in<br />

superyacht, commercial marine and wind vessel applications.<br />

biggest problems facing marinas and tourist ports today. At least<br />

that‘s according to the Greek start-up SaMMY, which presented its<br />

cloud-based IOT platform at the Amsterdam trade fair. This is designed<br />

to enable skippers and captains to search, compare, reserve<br />

and securely pay for a berth quickly and easily using on-demand<br />

services (web, widgets, mobile apps). The platform offers integrated<br />

and comprehensive digital services that are revolutionary for the<br />

yachting industry market, combining real-time berth allocation<br />

with efficient port management and IoT-enabled mechanisms.<br />

Of particular interest to the large super and mega yacht segment<br />

was the appearance of CMC Marine, the specialist for electrical<br />

stabilization. Founded in Italy in 2005, the company develops<br />

stabilizer, thruster, steering and control systems for the maritime<br />

market. At Metstrade, the company presented its new stabilizer<br />

models LR 180 and LR 250. The latter is the largest electrically<br />

operated raft system the company has ever produced. The<br />

two new units are designed for vessel lengths of 50 to 100 feet. According<br />

to CMC, the algorithm of the new series, due to be<br />

launched in spring <strong>2024</strong>, improves onboard performance and<br />

takes full advantage of CMC Marine‘s Stabilis Electra system, including<br />

instant feedback to reduce sway and performance optimization<br />

based on sea conditions. The company also plans to invest<br />

in expanding its range of electrical products. To this end,<br />

CMC Marine has entered into a partnership with Gyro Marine to<br />

add gyroscopes to its product range.<br />

Metstrade 2023 took place for the 35th time in fall 2023 and<br />

celebrated this anniversary with record-breaking numbers of participants.<br />

1,540 exhibitors – 240 of whom were exhibiting in Amsterdam<br />

for the first time – from 53 countries gathered in the 11<br />

halls of the RAI Amsterdam to present their products to around<br />

18,630 visitors from all over the world.<br />

»Our team is committed to ensuring that Metstrade facilitates<br />

the connections and business needed for a successful year. Without<br />

the creativity and entrepreneurship of the supply chain, there is no<br />

marine industry. Our figures for 2023 are impressive, but they<br />

don‘t tell the whole story. We are especially grateful to have received<br />

»Smooth running guaranteed«<br />

The German company Piening Propeller is a specialist for propellers and stern gears.<br />

CEO Mathias Pein explains why his products are often not seen but so important to<br />

owners and guests<br />

<strong>HANSA</strong> YACHTS: For most yacht owners, a propeller is probably<br />

a propeller. You have a more nuanced opinion, don‘t you?<br />

Mathias Pein: Well, yacht owners primarily notice the things on a<br />

yacht that they can see or even touch. People are happy to spend<br />

money on beautiful and appealing or particularly comfortable<br />

things. The propeller, on the other hand, is not seen and is easily<br />

regarded and dismissed as a mundane part of the propulsion technology.<br />

However, many people are not even aware that a new propeller<br />

is one of the real aesthetic »gems« of a yacht. Nor do they<br />

realize that they would not really be able to enjoy many other<br />

beautiful things on board while sailing or even sleep peacefully if<br />

the propeller(s) were not precisely adapted to the yacht in question<br />

and matched to the overall propulsion system. Thanks to an individual<br />

design and adequate production, the propeller ensures that<br />

the ship‘s propulsion power is ideally transferred to the water and<br />

that, in addition to the propulsion of the ship, the smooth running<br />

that is so important on yachts is guaranteed.<br />

How important are superyachts for Piening? And which segments<br />

are covered in addition?<br />

Pein: In our 95-year company history, our products have traditionally<br />

come from the commercial shipping sector, but in the last 25<br />

years, superyachts have also become a very important market segment<br />

for Piening Propeller. Together with navy and research<br />

vessels, whose system requirements are also very high, they belong<br />

to our market segment of »high-performance propulsion systems«.<br />

These generally form the »Piening Propeller Power Package«, consisting<br />

of gearboxes (ZF), complete shaft systems, hydrodynami-<br />
