Great news for fans of Grand Tourismo cars: now there is an equivalent in the yachting world. On the market appeared Dynamiq GTT-130 Jetsetter - the first hull of a new class of yachts GTT (Gran Turismo Transatlantic), invented by Sergei Dobroserdov.
The extra T in the name of the line underlines the ultimative nature of the water version of «Gran Turismo»: 3,000 miles on one tank, across the Atlantic without stopping. The maximum range is achieved at a speed of 10 knots, which is good for a 39 m vessel. At the same time the yacht «eats a» modest 80 litres of fuel per hour.
For a long journey, the Jetsetter is equipped with everything you need: a battery of Miele fridges and freezers keeps your lobsters fresh, a couple of wine coolers keep the right wine at the right temperature, and for sober people there's a 7,000 litre fresh water tank and desalters that produce 8,000 litres of drinking water every day.
The Jetsetter can be accelerated up to 21 knots if desired, with a «maximum fuel» consumption of 650 litres per hour. The boat's fuel tanks hold 25,000 litres, so even at high speed you can drive for more than a day and a half without stopping. At the wheel of the integrated i-Bridge control station it's not difficult: with two trackballs and four monitors you can control everything from navigation to safety and monitoring systems.
The main gathering point in all cases will be the boat's huge 20 meters long sandwich and five flexible, customizable rest areas. Here you can sunbathe, barbecue, watch a movie, lie in a Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean and even sweat in a small outdoor fitness center. The cinema is equipped with a discotheque set and great sound is provided by Bowers and Wilkins hi-end speakers with 21 loudspeakers positioned to meet all the laws of sound reflection.
Whatever you do on board the Jetsetter, you'll do it comfortably. At least this is evidenced by the RINA Comfort class and RINA Green Star Plus. They mean three things: minimum noise, minimum rocking and minimum emissions.
To reduce noise and vibration, the German Fortjes pod drives are placed outside the enclosure. Add to this the CMC Marine electric rocker stabilizers used instead of the usual hydraulic ones, as well as careful analysis by Van Oossanen and Azure engineers who meticulously calculated the ideal location of the master suite - and here you are relaxing in Pratesi custom-made underwear, enjoying peace and quiet.
The interiors of Jetsetter were designed in London's famous studio Bannenberg & Rowell. Sophisticated but not overloaded with unnecessary details, the interior spaces did not leave indifferent the visitors of the Monaco Yacht Show, where this superyacht premiered. To the Robb Reporter Michael Verdon.
«During my tour of the Jetsetter I was particularly impressed with the interiors of Bannenberg & Rowell. The London designers gave preference to free-standing sofas and chairs over fixed and built-in furniture, so the impression of a modern home on the water, at the peak of the formal atmosphere on many other yachts. The large panoramic saloon windows, together with the decent height of the ceilings (2.3 metres) and width (7.6 metres) create a feeling of much more generous space than on most yachts in this class. The salon connects to the dining room, which also seems very spacious but not too cumbersome. The same feeling of space and air is created in the full width master suite located at the stern of the lower deck, and in the guest cabins which are closer to the bow. Bannenberg & Rowell has created an elegant and cozy interior, using light tones and hexagonal motifs that appear everywhere - on the walls, in carpet patterns and even on the flybridge tables.
The interior of the Jetsetter does not seem more generous than usual on a yacht of this size for nothing: the idea of the Dynamiq was to bring the standards of 60-80 meters to the 30-40 meters segment, unlike other shipyards that move from smaller to larger with the same standards.
For this purpose Dynamiq founder Sergey Dobroserdov has assembled under the new brand a truly star team of naval architects and designers with extensive experience in the construction of megayachts: in addition to the above mentioned Van Oossanen, Azure and Bannenberg & Rowell, Jetsetter was also worked on by the developer of smart wireless lighting technology Rohir van der Heide, while the Italian fashion house Trussardi has created an exclusive collection of furniture and accessories for the yacht.
For clients who were attracted by the GTT concept but did not have any of the characteristics of a finished yacht, Dynamiq offers to assemble their yacht in an online configurator without getting up from the sofa. You will be able to find out the price of a boat with the set you need simply at bedynamiq.com, without having to contact the shipyard and brokers many times and without waiting for all the calculations and deadlines.
The 35-metre D3 Hybrid is currently under construction on the industrial site of the NCA shipyard in Tuscany, close to Forte dei Marmi, a favourite resort of Russians. It is promised to be brought to a boat show in Monaco next year. In addition, the 30-meter D2 is under design.
All yachts are all aluminium.
