Innovation continues to forge ahead in the world of superyachts with Italian yacht maker Dynamiq unveiling their latest GTT 160 project.
The 49.5-metre vessel features a cutting-edge aluminium construction – an engineering appointment that Dynamiq believes is essential for today’s modern superyachts in meeting the highest efficiency and beauty standards.
Needless to say, the GTT 160 is capable of transporting its passengers to the most idyllic ocean locations from secluded beaches in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, to crossing the Atlantic in search of some rare downtime on the open waters.
The GTT 160’s racy contemporary styling is credited to Dobroserdov Design, which underscores a host of luxurious accommodation features such as room for up to 12 guests across six cabins. There are additional crew quarters for up to eight staff members.
The master stateroom enjoys pride of place on the main deck forward and features two large fixed side balconies. The vast galley with breakfast bar is designed for use by a professional chef, or for personal cooking in the company of friends.
On the upper deck there’s a cinema lounge complete with 75-inch screen and a bar area. The sun deck hosts a second helm position with uninterrupted views and generous room for sunbathing.
As a first for a superyacht, the main deck aft is devised as a massive beach club with 120 square metres of floor space alongside a hot tub for 12 people. There’s also an enclosed spa area with sauna, hammam and convertible gymnasium spanning almost 40 square metres with additional space for a massage table. All of these features are more commonly found on luxury vessels that are twice the size of the GTT 160.
On the technology front, the yacht features a fast displacement hull with an aft Hull Vane foil for extra lift underway, which decreases drag and improves fuel efficiency. This innovation allows the vessel to reach a top speed of 17 knots when equipped with modest MAN 6-cylinder (537 kW) engines.
Those needing to traverse the seas even faster can opt for the S version, which comes equipped with a powerful pair of MAN V12-1800 engines for a top speed of 23 knots. Alternatively, greener customers can tick the hybrid option, which comes with a zero-emission electric mode to provide silent cruising at up to 8 knots.
Sergei Dobroserdov, Dynamiq founder and CEO, explained that the idea was to create the most attractive proposal for a superyacht at just under 50 metres.
"There are so many 50-metre yachts below 500GT available, but they all look very similar with pretty much the same functionality. 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: wellbeing, efficiency and price."
The GTT 160 can be configured at Dynamiq now, with pricing starting at €19,900,000.
