We wish a windy summer to all our customer around the 7 Oceans.
The Darwin 86-3 is now ready for the holiday. This big motoryacht cruise at 12Kn with the two Man D2876 331kW @1800rpm. The boat is very quite with no vibration and a average noise of 55-60dB, very low, thanks to the superior insulation.It took a month to get the boat ready and the yard spend a lot of time searching good supplier for the canvas and last extra equipment. Probably the boat will be in Cannes Boat Show.
We have big progress with the K&M Bestevaer 56 in Holland. The hull has been turned upright 2nd of July.
We had check the welding and assembly for the third time and visited the yard again and his beautiful yachts. We will see again the BV56 in the middle of September when will be almost finished with engine and hull grinded ready for delivery.
Here the owner photos blog http://alu56.blogspot.it/ where you can see our rendering and interior proposal
The works of the Stadtship 54Ac are on progress in Zuanelli Shipyard, and after the summer the interior layout will take shape, finally we decide to use Alpikord laminates for superior resistance to scratches and sun. the wood panel will arrive already industrial varnished, so no loose of time during the assembly. The Antal deck gear is now installed, the electrical system is now at the 75% with all the ducts and tinned cables by Ancor Marine. The Aqua 7 Maggi chain will shortly arrive and combined to the Rocna 55Kg will give us superior ground tackle capability. The bimini and all the metal work are finished. We had start to foam 100mm insulation Froth Pack 45Kg/cdm, except for the pilot house, where we prefer use Armaflex 35mm, to do a nicer and uniform job (but how long to get all the pieces in shape).We hope that the engine room insulation with Armasound will be faster!
Patimar, our old proud boat, is back in the water from 1st of June and will sail in Greek Water with the new owner. I had to help him to make first sea trial, maneuvering, anchoring and start the watermaker. It’s a little bit strange sailing her for the last time after 12 year, but we were lucky with a 10-12Kn wind we immediately reach 6.5kn
There’s a lot on interest in Aluminum yacht specially after several accident of yachts that loose the keel. A lot questions regarding shipyard and yachts like Boreal 44 or 47, Futuna, sistership of Seal (Ed Joy), Ovni, Atlantis Dujardin, Koopmans, Garcia. The questions are regarding the stability, the behavior, the insulation and sailing capacity.
