Setting Trends in Mega Yacht Building


Setting Trends in Mega Yacht Building

Current projects confirm the predominant trend in mega yacht building – the length counts. Blohm+Voss has been preparing for this development and have completed project studies for yachts with lengths in excess of 76 metres. The highlight amongst the latest projects is 147-metre luxury yacht, which sets new standards in design, features and functionality. The design includes various loggias, balconies, oriels, sundecks, a swimming pool on the top deck, a cinema and a disco. The yacht has a garage for a small tourist submarine and a helicopter landing pad. In additon, a 18-metre long tender is integrated into the silhouette.

The innovative CODAG-WARP® (Combined Diesel and Gas Turbine, Waterjet and Refined Propellers) drive concept, developed for naval shipbuilding, is proposed for mega yachts. The drive configuration consisting of two 5,920 kW diesel engines driving separate propellers and a 20,000 kW gas turbine with hydrojet propulsion, enables speeds above 30 knots. This design provides completely new alternatives in the construction and design of decks, since exhaust gas ducts no longer have to be taken into consideration.

One of the recent contracts signed by Blohm + Voss is 118 m yacht, referred to as the project SIGMA, scheduled for delivery in 2007. Signing of this and earlier contracts signals strategic direction of Blohm+Voss towards the construction of mega yachts.
