New Feadship Megayacht 257.5′ HAMPSHIRE II: A Sportsman’s Paradise

Feadship has launched the 78.50-metre custom megayacht HAMPSHIRE II for an experienced Feadship owner with a great love of action and sports. From the foredeck ball court to the 25-metre high crow’s mast, this latest scion of the Feadship fleet is a yacht full of adventure.

HAMPSHIRE II is built for a sports enthusiast and designed around every conceivable sporting activity while also offering exceptional facilities for those who like to take things a little easier. In fact at the launch ceremony, various teams representing the owner’s guests and personnel from the yard played football on the foredeck of HAMPSHIRE II. The yacht’s helicopter landing platform, nicely finished in teak, can be transformed into a playing field for basketball, tennis, baseball, badminton and football. A giant net is placed around the deck to ensure continuity of the games.

This is one of many unusual features onboard this bespoke Feadship, the split-level design of which maximises the volume and outdoor space. On the sundeck, for instance, a crow’s nest placed atop the mast is reached by a two-person elevator and offers panoramic views high above the water. For the truly adventurous, a zip wire is connected to the mast to which one can tie a rope and slide at breathtaking speed from the crow’s nest down to the water.

HAMPSHIRE II also has a phenomenal beach club with two platforms that open up either side of the yacht in addition to the swim platform at the transom. A swimming ladder descends from the stern hydraulically while the beach club itself has been finished in a driftwood style. The whole area is very well incorporated with the deck above, which includes a skylight surrounded by seating.

The contemporary overall design by Redman Whiteley Dixon and Feadship incorporates balconies on either side: Seating terraces for the owners and wing stations adjacent to the wheelhouse. There is a wealth of fine detailing in the design, including the nameplate on the glass panel in the recessed part of the bridge deck fashion plates.

While the exterior profile is modern, HAMPSHIRE II’s interior is a classic affair. Highlights include a typical English style bar on the bridge deck in place of the traditional lounge.

The engine room has a passageway through the middle with full height glass walls. Only three colours are used in this area – Ferrari red, white and black which, combined with lots of stainless steel and the clever use of spotlights, make the engine room look fantastic. The same can be said of the wheelhouse with its glass-covered dashboard and touchscreen controls. Like everything else on this splendid vessel, state-of-the-art technologies have been combined with exceptional craftsmanship and an unprecedented eye for visual treats. And in doing so Feadship has set a new standard for owners who enjoy using their superyacht to the max.

2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show Review: More People, More Merchandise, More Superyachts

The 2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show is being hailed as a success and a sure sign of a general upswing in the economy. With increased traffic and positive sales results, it appears that people are poised to fully express their passions for yachting.

This year attendance was up at the show, which attracted more than 50,000 people. It covered more space than ever, thanks to the addition of 40 in-water slips at Palm Harbor Marina at the show’s north end.

 

Foyer, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

More than $350 million worth of marine merchandise was on display, and the number of yachts with an LOA greater than 100 feet was up 35 percent from last year, distinguishing this show as one of the top in the country. Sunreef Yachts Charter experts toured many of the most distinguished charter yachts, including DIAMOND GIRL, PRIVATE LIVES, BLIND DATE, took copious notes, interviewed Captains and crews and sampled gourmet cuisine on board.

Although it is difficult to estimate exactly how lucrative the show will ultimately prove to be, many sales brokers claim pending sales and the rumor mill is hinting about the sale of

Toys, PRIVATE LIVES

one megayacht considered to be a real gem. Serious charter inquiries from qualified clients, including well known celebrities spotted on the docks, indicate that the future of the marine industry looks very bright indeed.

Please visit Sunreef Yachts Charter Facebook page to view photo albums with additional descriptions of DIAMOND GIRL, PRIVATE LIVESBLIND DATE, GLAZE, FOUR ACES and MISS ROSE, some of our favorite and most popular charter yachts in the show.

 

 

Sunreef On Board Benetti Yachts 200′ Bejeweled Masterpiece, DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, Owner John Staluppi’s latest, most technologically advanced and extravagantly decorated megayacht, was the must-see build for everyone attending the 2012 Palm Beach International Boat Show. DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER is an outstanding collaboration between John Staluppi, Benetti Yachts, and Evan K. Marshall. Her elegant aesthetics are a stunning interpretation of the exclusivity of luxury yachting, defined by graceful shapes, dynamic lines and a powerful presence.

The in-house technical department of Azimut-Benetti, responsible for naval architecture and engineering, used high-resistance steel for the hull and light weight aluminum alloy for the superstructure. The displacement hull features a bulbous bow and a longitudinal skeg running from amidships to the stern, facilitating the 200-foot yacht’s ability to travel at a remarkable maximum speed of 16 knots, with an oceanic range of 4,800 nautical miles at 12 knots.

The concept design and exterior styling of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER was entrusted to Benetti FB Line’s brilliant Stefano Natucci, who imbued the vessel with the instantly recognizable modern classicism that is a trademark of Benetti motor yachts. Innovative features of this quad-deck design include a VIP master stateroom and an Owners’ master stateroom. The unusual fly bridge, located above the sun deck, creates a spectacular panoramic private Owner’s deck that can accommodate helicopter landings and takeoffs, and can only be reached via controlled access from the main staircase and the central elevator.

The interior design and decoration of DIAMONDS

Designer Evan Marshall

ARE FOREVER are the work of the extraordinarily talented Evan K. Marshall of Usonia V, responsible for the interiors of previous Staluppi superyachts including THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH. Marshall designed sumptuous interiors, including all loose furniture, for comfort and visual impact. Furnishings throughout that epitomize luxury and refinement are embedded with thousands of Swarovski crystals that successfully mimic glittering, prismatic diamonds.

Shimmering foyers on each deck house the central spiral staircase that winds around the cylindrical glass elevator. Each foyer sparkles with reflective glass, thematic works of art, striking combinations of marble and onyx floor inlays, and burl wall panels framed by gold and silver leaf inlays.

The main deck layout includes living and dining areas and the VIP apartment. On this and all deck levels, social spaces incorporate elegant pieces of loose furniture and commissioned works of art with design motifs inspired by the ship’s name. The furniture appears to be freestanding, supported only by slender legs embedded with delicate Swarovski crystals set in polished chrome and gold-plate. The VIP master suite features a split-level layout with large panoramic forward facing windows, his and hers walk-in dressing rooms, an exercise room with adjoining sauna and a beauty salon with massage table. These spaces are self contained and can be separated from the stateroom for use by other guests.

The lower deck layout includes one twin stateroom and three king-size staterooms, two of which have walk-in wardrobes. The materials for the staterooms include elegant Madrona burl woods, gold and silver leaf inlays, rare marbles and onyx, and custom colored and embossed leathers. Notable features include lavish ensuite facilities, commissioned works of art representing Neoclassical, Art Deco and Art Nouveau periods, faux stingray skin walls and trim, and silent air conditioning cleverly ventilated through crown molding.

On the upper deck of DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER is the spectacular sky lounge, featuring a unique automated indoor-outdoor dining area. With the flick of a switch electric doors convert the indoor space by opening the area to the aft cockpit, instantly creating an outdoor dining area. The full beam living area boasts a welcoming low bar, plush seating arrangement, a grand piano, game table and four televisions, (we are told Staluppi is a serious Nascar fan) that are concealed by original paintings embedded with Swarovski crystals. In each of the niched corners are four original sculptures inspired by the famous Quattro Fontane in Rome, that reveal John Staluppi’s passion for the sculptures of the artist Erté, renowned as a great master of Art Nouveau and Art Déco. They are reputed to be a very limited edition from the artist’s America Series quartet entitled “Liberty”, “Fearless and Free”, “Peace” and “Justice”, and produced using a bronze alloy casting technique.

DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER is superb luxury yacht that meets the most demanding charter requirements; palatial amounts of space, the very best materials and technology, the highest levels of service, and the utmost privacy and security. She will be available for charter through the Mediterranean this spring.
