At Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 Invictus Yacht will display a line-up of models capable of showing the full variety of the Italian shipyard’s ranges, led by the World debut of the new SX200 and the French premiere of the flagship TT460.Invictus Capoforte SX200World premiereSX200The new SX200 is the first in the Capoforte collection that includes models from 19 to 28 feet (previously grouped under the letter X) is a synthesis of functionality and fun. Managing to recreate livable, usable spaces in just six meters was a complex challenge but turned out to be a success. The bow and stern areas can be used as sundecks or lounges, either separately or configured as a single large space. The layout with an off-centre console permits a convenient direct passage between bow and stern, leaving space for a grill. The storage adds further practicality to a boat whose style, exclusive finishes and exuberant performance unequivocally convey a sporty vocation.SX200The sporty nature of the Invictus Capoforte SX200 is underlined by the 150 hp outboard engine which easily takes the boat to over 30 knots, while 20 knots is the best option for fuel-efficient cruising. TT460 French premiereTT460The characterizing element of the new Invictus TT460 is the elegant style of the windscreen, from the bow to amidships, which blends seamlessly with the carbon hardtop and further enhances the impressive mass of this yacht. The deck, which includes a comfortable walkway on its perimeter, has a large sundeck in the bow with a flush-seat at the edge. Amidships, the dinette tables can be folded back to make room for a second sundeck, shaded by the hardtop. In the same position, the topsides can be equipped with two foldable platforms, which increase the liveable space aboard. Teak wood can be laid on the stern swim platform and on the whole deck. A hydraulic moving device can be added to help swimmers climb back aboard and to manage the tender, which is an unusual feature on this type of yacht. The new TT460 is equipped with two Volvo Penta IPS 650 engines.TT460Invictus Yachts has given owners plenty of opportunities to customize the interiors, there are plenty of colours and types of upholstery to choose from the Atelier Invictus, so owners can configure their boat to satisfy their needs and according to their personal taste. TT460In addition to the SX200, there will be the CX240, the CX270 and the SX280. The flagship TT460, the GT370S and the GT320 will be in the water.The Italian shipbuilder produced open type boats with multiple vocations. The debut production will include two ranges of leisure boats, corresponding with two types of propulsion: inboard-outboard for the “GT” series, more tending to leisure and sailing, and outboard for the “FX”, more technical and sporty.

The yacht has entered a 36-month bareboat charter with a purchase option to benefit the California Maritime Academy Foundation.Odin was built by Nautor’s Swan in 2018 with design by German Frers. This technologically advanced yacht was built using carbon foam/Nomex sandwich and SPRINT technology and is equipped with an advanced WPT3 race processor. Every detail of the sailing yacht has been studied by world-class engineers and boat builders to ensure the yacht is optimized for competitive racing at the highest level ensuring she has second-to-none performance and a soft touch at the helm.Her interior is warm and welcoming. She has an open-plan layout that is ideal for hosting guests. The sailing yacht also has a well-equipped galley. She can accommodate six guests.

The new, innovative Mangusta Oceano 44 is developed jointly by the Overmarine Group’s Engineering department and designer Alberto Mancini, who took care of both her exteriors and interiors, this ultra-modern sea loft is a perfect blend of glass, charm and audacity, ready to explore the world.The new 44m three-decker offers her guests unprecedented experiences and the pleasure of spending every single moment of cruising in the utmost comfort. The design includes a series of side and crosswise sliding doors, creating a harmonious continuum of solutions and materials and making the very most of onboard life.The beach club conceived to be the very heart of social life, once the transom is opened and the side terraces are unfolded, it becomes a 180° marine environment brightened by the natural light that filters through the side openings and the partially glazed upper deck, resulting in an incredibly airy and yet very cosy area.One of the most distinguishing features on this yacht are two infinity pools located on the sun and main decks. The one on the main deck is called “The Island”: it is a sunbathing area embraced by water, which can be easily accessed via a teak deck, removing any possible barrier with the surrounding environment and creating a truly full-immersion experience; the second is on the spacious sun deck, from where guests can enjoy breathtaking views over the ocean from dawn to sunset.Huge volumes and generous spaces – like the 104 sq. m of the sundeck, so far unthinkable on a yacht in her class. The master cabin, located on the main deck, is connected to the upper deck by the skylights created on the bottom of the infinity pool, which let natural light shine through and fill the cabin with mesmerising water reflections. The cabin is also fitted with a mechanically-driven balcony, from which the owner will be able to enjoy his own private view of the ocean.This yacht’s elegant layout is characterised by a harmonious design consistency between indoor and outdoor areas, also thanks to an extensive use of glass. Steel handrails and bulwarks have been replaced by see-through glass surfaces mounted flush with teak – a solution that has opened up new scenarios and allowed to achieve impressively generous areas that would normally be unattainable on a traditional three decker.In terms of performances she has a lot to offer – a range of 4,500 nautical miles, a maximum speed of 16 knots, and a cruising speed of 11 knots, always in the unparalleled comfort ensured by zero-speed and underway stabilizers.Overmarine Group was founded in 1985 by the Balducci family. The shipyard builds open and displacement power superyachts under the Mangusta and Mangusta Oceanco brand names.Credits: Overmarine

Moonen Yachts has shared the construction updates on the YN201. YN201 is the fourth Martinique. Last Wednesday the 33.6m superyacht had her twin Caterpillar C32 Acert engines hoisted into her engine room. A step that comes right before the joining of the hull and superstructure. Yesterday, the next milestone for YN201 was checked off the list as her aluminium superstructure was joined to her high tensile steel hull. “Every time it’s amazing to see the yacht in its full glory for the first time. This point also marks the start of our intense outfitting period where all systems will be installed, the luxurious interior will be built-in and she will be painted in her final colours. The next time she will be outside, she will be fully ready to be launched,” says Ian Vermoen, Project Manager.YN201, which is available for sale, is due for delivery in 2022. Moonen Yachts is a yacht builder based in the Netherlands, and its first yacht was built in 1964 under the original yard name of De Ruiter. In 1981 the yard was renamed Moonen Shipyards. It’s launching its first vessel under new ownership: Alhena. In 2017 Moonen Shipyards changed into Moonen Yachts. With the help of strong vision, innovative technology and new designers, Moonen is once again becoming the market leader in 30m to 50m luxury yachts.Credits: Moonen Yachts
