Setting the standard of new motor yacht design at the Monaco Yacht Show this year was the Dynamiq 35 meter superyacht the GTT 115. The craft was designed in collaboration with Studio F.A. Porsche, and represents the first time the studio has worked on a superyacht. Studio F.A. Porsche’s obsessive design approach and Dynamiq’s forward-thinking ethos make for a heady combination.
The GTT 115 fits all the criteria for a cutting edge yacht in 2017. The custom, optional hybrid design available for the yacht is pricey, but extraordinary. With the system engaged, the engines may be bypassed by generator-only power that pushes the yacht to 6 knots in absolute silence. The system may be run continually.
Efficiency is a major design concern throughout the yacht. An aluminum round-bilge hull allowing the GTT 115 to cut the water with ease. She also receives a Hull Vane foil, a kind of modified or partial hydrofoil that further decreases resistance to propulsion. And the stabilization system employed is unique to the GTT 115, using four fins and interceptors to decrease roll dramatically when under way or at anchor.
The interiors of the yacht are as arresting as her architecture. A blend of traditional and very contemporary presents a unique style that balances familiar design tropes with a more daring approach.
Only seven GTT 115 motor yachts will be built. The price begins at $14.5 million, at today’s conversion rates, with the hybrid power option adding another $1.75 million.
