The world may be in the grip of a pretty scary global pandemic. And many of the world’s most exclusive superyachts are riding out “shelter in place” restrictions in utterly beautiful places. But, that hardly means the world’s superyacht design community has stopped coming up with new concepts.
In fact, the Dynamiq GTT 160 project is aimed at today’s active owners who want to escape aboard a racy, 160-foot-long superyacht designed by Dobroserdov Design. As a result, it provides ultra-luxe accommodations for 12 guests in six cabins, including a master cabin on the main deck forward that features two large fixed side balconies. It also has crew quarters for up to eight staff. Today In: Boats & Planes
The upper deck includes a cinema and bar. While the main deck aft features a massivebeach club, and hot tub along with a large Spa area featuring a sauna, hammam and gym.
According to advanced reports, the GTT 160 is also capable of crossing the Atlantic at 14 knots with a max economical range of 4,000 nautical miles. Those looking for more speed can upgrade to the S version, which will offer a more powerful pair of MAN V12-1800 engines for a top speed of 23 knots.
“The idea was to create the most attractive proposal for a superyacht of just under 50 meters.” says Sergei Dobroserdov, Dynamiq founder and CEO. “We asked ourselves ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients?’ The answer was to focus on modern owners’ priorities and leave the less important things aside. So we decided to design the GTT 160 with the accent on the key factors: well-being, efficiency and price. In terms of naval architecture, we selected a slender hull with a long waterline that is much more efficient and comfortable than a short, wide one.”
To complete the package, the GTT 160 houses a 21-foot tender in the forward garage and is equipped with a touch-and-go helipad.
The only question is who’s going to sign a superyacht contract these days? You might be surprised.
