The eighth unit of the 500Exp line has hit the water at Sanlorenzo shipyard in La Spezia. A model combines Sanlorenzo's unmistakable elegance with large, articulated spaces on board and the latest technologies. The hull, inspired by the profiles of the great exploration ships, promises distant destinations and exotic places.At 47m in length and with a tonnage of just under 500 tonnes, the 500Exp is distinguished by its exceptional sailing performance, with a high cruising range of 4,000 nautical miles, enabling it to navigate along the coast with minimal consumption and to make ocean crossings with ease.Every kind of nautical entertainment is guaranteed on board the Explorer, thanks to the possibility of accommodating tenders or sailing boats of up to 9m in the stern or, depending on the owner's wishes, a seaplane or a submarine, spaces that would be unthinkable in yachts of the same size.The lower deck houses a beach club which, thanks to the opening hatch, allows for a complete connection with the sea and which, as an option, can be converted into a garage to accommodate tenders of up to seven meters and numerous toys.The interiors are extremely spacious and inviting, thanks also to the choice of décor that favours the use of sophisticated materials such as prestigious woods, crystal, marble and precious fabrics and leathers.Having sold nine, it looks like Sanlorenzo has cemented its leadership with the Explorer.Sanlorenzo was founded in 1985 in Viareggio by yacht builder Gionvanni Jannetti. In 2005, Massimo Perrotti became the majority shareholder in the shipyard. Sanlorenzo builds yachts ranging from 28.60m to 62m in length. Credits: Sanlorenzo
The 10m Foiler, the ‘Flying Yacht’, is a true boat for the 21st century. She was designed and produced by Enata Marine and is able to ride 1.5m above the waves at 40 knots in complete comfort thanks to a revolutionary retractable foiling system.But the Foiler’s cutting-edge design and performance required an equally sophisticated onboard management system for total navigational control and a seamless user experience. The Wingman software package is able to manage and optimise every aspect of the yacht’s operation, from CO2 emissions and fuel consumption to the angle and loads on the foils. The stylish dashboard interface provides detailed data on all the most important information such as speed, engine revs and fuel consumption, as well as the anchor, lighting and tank systems. The clear graphic layout can be taken in at a glance even at high speeds and a carousel controller provides access to more data by simply swiping and clicking on it.The data from the sensors being run through the software is constantly monitored to develop diagnostics that facilitate preventative maintenance via a check-up program that also alerts the user if there are any changes in the day-to-day state of the systems. Enata Marine can even monitor the boat over the cloud, issue health reports and notify the boat owner when a visit from a technician is due. “You may be doing some things too late and others you don’t need too,” says Aloïs Vieujot, Enata Director. “The system will advise when it’s time for specific maintenance work, which means less yard time and lower running costs.”The heart of the system is Enata’s microcontroller, which allows the Wingman system to ‘learn’ from previous conditions. Part of the Wingman is a computer that stores all the telemetry and sends it to the cloud.“Owners can download over-the-air software updates and choose to share the yacht’s data with us on the cloud, so if there’s an issue we can first try to resolve it ourselves remotely. Our experience is that most of the issues can actually be resolved over the air, which is a lot cheaper and a significantly improved customer experience,” says Aloïs. “A lot of functions can also be operated using a smartphone, such as turning on the engines, changing the speed and heading, and engaging the autopilot.” Data analysis results in tools for optimising performance and running the onboard systems. About 300 values are shared at a rate of 100Hz (32,000 samples/second), producing a wealth of information that can be used to help minimise fuel consumption. Enata Marine is also working to introduce upgrades that further enhance stability to further improve comfort in rough seas.“For example, the boat was most fuel efficient when foiling at around 27 knots when the consumption used to be 2.5 litres per nautical mile,” says Aloïs. “With all the data we collect, we’ve since managed to tweak that and it’s now 2 litres per nautical mile, and this is continuously improving. Instead of having a boat that becomes obsolete with time, your Foiler is always benefiting from the latest improvements.”The smart efficiency and user-friendly design of the Wingman system is such that Enata Marine has been approached by other interests in the marine sector, including boat builders, engine manufacturers, fleet managers in the oil & gas industry and coastguard services. However, it is equally applicable to other yachts and the company plans to make the system available to other boat owners as a standalone package.With its factory in the United Arab Emirates, Enata boasts a 75,000 sq.ft top-notch yard which hosts its three divisions: Enata Marine, Enata Aerospace and Enata Architecture. Enata Marine is located in Sharjah and offers a wide range of solutions: from cruising catamarans to flying yachts and mega yachts. Credits: Enata Marine

The 30.5m Ferretti 1000 is the Italian shipbuilder’s largest superyacht in the range. She is the result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, architect Filippo Salvetti for the exteriors, and Ideaeitalia for the new interior concept.Ferretti Yachts 1000 exterior Versatile and suited to all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood developed to adapt to the owner’s various needs. Ferretti Yachts 1000 exterior The first Ferretti Yachts 1000 features Classic styling, with a mood defined by soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts. At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing in both outdoor and indoor areas, where quintessential ‘Made in Italy’ taste prevails. The suavely understated design, featuring clean lines and sophisticated materials, conveys a sense of refined luxury and is the ideal interpretation of the values expressed by the ‘Just Like Home’ claim: comfort, Italianness, timeless design and craftsmanship.Ferretti Yachts 1000 flybridgeThe exterior styling reprises the design philosophy introduced with the latest models in the range: sporty lines dominate a profile featuring new glass side panels aft and amidships. Ferretti Yachts 1000 main salonThe interior design is elegant and modern, while respecting the boatbuilding tradition imprinted in Ferretti Yachts’ DNA. The versatility of the interiors translates into a layout that leaves the owner ample choice to design their own onboard experience. The sense of a space to live in prevails. The relationship with the surrounding environment is intensified by large full-height windows that accentuate the feeling of contact with the water and let natural light flood in, while the freestanding furniture conveys a sense of lightness and the contours of the geometrical detailing have a unique style. Ferretti Yachts 1000 flybridgeFerretti Yachts 1000 redefines the stern concept: 40 sq m of liveable space, on a par with a superyacht. It is a beach club in the true sense of the term, where direct access to the swim platform from the cockpit creates an outdoor wellness area in contact with the water: a new place of adventure and fun, where the owner can create their own experience in an unprecedented open space for socialising. A revolutionary concept makes it easy to leave the water when the swim platform is submerged by opening up three steps on either side of the platform as it is lowered, continuing the stairway down from the cockpit.Ferretti Yachts 1000 swim platformFerretti Yachts 1000 master cabin This design, developed entirely by the Engineering Department, is a Ferretti Group patent. Under the side steps leading up to the cockpit is another point of entry into the garage. This solution provides a convenient way to reach the garage without having to use the main door. The garage can accommodate a Williams Dieseljet 445 tender, a three-seater jet ski, and even two Seabobs, and may also be reached through an independent entrance on the starboard side.Ferretti Yachts 1000 cockpit On board Ferretti Yachts 1000, the concept of space and ergonomics is expressed to perfection by a generous salon overlooking the water. The large full-height side windows, created using a new construction solution, can be fitted on request with opening mechanisms on both sides and work with the glass door to establish a sense of continuity between the interior and exterior spaces, giving the sensation of a terrace on the water.Ferretti Yachts 1000 exteriorThe first Ferretti Yachts 1000 unit is equipped with twin 2638 mhp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, driving the yacht to a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots (preliminary data). The standard version mounts a pair of 2217 mhp MTU 16V 2000 M86 engines, with a top speed of 24 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots (preliminary data).The new flagship can also be fitted on request with gyroscopic stabilisation combined with stabilizer fins to ensure maximum comfort and silent running both at anchor in the roadstead and when cruising.The Ferretti Group, led by Chief Executive Officer Alberto Galassi, is now one of the world’s leaders in the construction and sale of luxury yachts and pleasure vessels, with a unique portfolio of brands: Ferretti Yachts, Riva, Pershing, Itama, Mochi Craft, CRN, Custom Line and Wally.Credits: Ferretti Group
