Dynamiq GTT 115

by Dynamiq with Vripack and Porsche Design

Dynamiq is a young shipyard specialising in the construction of luxury super yachts, with its headquarters in Monaco and production facilities in the Viareggio area, Italy. The yard was founded in 2011 by Sergei Dobroserdov, who is also the current CEO of Dynamiq. Dobroserdov is an all-round professional with wide-ranging experience in both yacht brokerage and new build management, and he has worked with some of the leading shipyards in Europe. In addition to a multitude of successful activities he also runs his own professional yacht design business, again located in Monte Carlo – the well-known, well-established Dobroserdov Design Studio.

Dobroserdov has backed up these individual skills and talents with high-tech modern facilities that meet the highest international quality control standards for the construction of motor yachts entirely in light aluminium alloy, and using a variety of propulsion types including hybrid technology. The 130-foot “Jetsetter”, the first motor yacht by Dynamiq, took to the water from these facilities and was greeted with great interest and appreciation when she was presented at the Monaco Yacht Show last year. Similarly, Dynamiq’s second motor yacht has the potential to draw the crowds from among the select public invited to the Monaco Yacht Show this year. However, as this issue of the magazine goes to press, the yacht is still in the final phases of production, with a last-minute launch planned just in time for her debut at the prestigious Monaco show. However, leaving aside the suspense and surprise element, in essence this vessel is part of the next generation of super yachts known as GTT, which stands for Gran Turismo Transatlantic – a new category of super yachts combining the dynamic design and high speed typical of sport cruisers with the high level of comfort and transoceanic range of displacement vessels. Various professional firms, specialists in their fields, came together to form a dream team to create this innovative family of super yachts, transforming the concept into a reality. For the GTT 115 series, for example – the series of the second Dynamiq motor yacht now in the completion phase – the Monaco-based shipyard called on Dutch firm Vripack to develop the naval architecture and marine engineering and Austria-based Studio F.A. Porsche to devise the exterior and interior design.  The GTT 115 series resulting from this collaboration will be a limited edition, with only seven hulls to be built so as to make it a genuinely exclusive collector’s item, while at the same time ensuring advantageous build timescales so that the finished vessel will be delivered just 15 months from the date of the order. In addition, as with other products in the Dynamiq range, for the GTT 115 series the Monaco-based shipyard is also offering clients the opportunity to set up the specifications for their yacht before buying, using the online Dynamiq Configurator tool. This allows real-time customisation of every technical and aesthetic aspect of the vessel, from exterior paint colours to interior furniture and on-board electronics. The role that the GTT 115 series is intended to fulfil on today’s world market, in addition to combining noteworthy performance in the water with comfortable cruising and a transatlantic range, is to offer luxury and space characteristics at a level normally found on much larger super yachts, thereby appealing to a lower market segment. With this product strategy, what Dynamiq is offering with the GTT 115 is aimed at a clientele focused on a very rational approach, and seeks to create vessels with greater manoeuvrability, but most importantly greater cost-effectiveness in terms of operational management. Dynamiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov confirms this: “Our target clients might include those who are looking to downsize from larger 50- or 60-metre mega yachts.” He continues: “They are already accustomed to the highest standards, but are ready to leave behind the hassle and huge costs of owning large vessels so they can enjoy the fun side of yacht ownership. The Dynamiq GTT 115 is the perfect implementation of utmost comfort and a sporty lifestyle in a practical and relatively compact package.” The Dynamiq CEO concludes by highlighting aspects of the project embodying its innovative concept: “When we talk about comfort and top service, the ideal for this size of yacht is six guests in three cabins served by a 1:1 ratio of six crew for a genuinely exclusive on-board service. We also designed the interior ceiling heights to more than 2.15 metres (7 feet) even in the lower deck cabins: that’s real luxury on a 35-metre yacht.”

 

The eye-catching look of the vessel also makes a decisive contribution to the luxurious exclusiveness of the new GTT 115, and for the first time ever in shipbuilding, it bears the unmistakable mark of Studio F.A. Porsche. This world-famous name has historically been known for its unique creations in the automotive design and industrial design sectors, and it is currently run and managed by Roland Heiler, Managing Director at Studio F.A. Porsche and Member of the Board at Porsche Design Group. Regarding the styling specially created for the new Dynamiq GTT 115, Heiler said: “Taking the spirit of high-performance sportscar styling to the high seas, the Dynamiq GTT 115 is designed to appeal to car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance.” With a special range of traditional Porsche colours available – “Carrara White”, “Rhodium Silver”, “Chalk” and “MonteCarlo Blue” – the motor yacht has numerous elements that unquestionably reveal and confirm the presence of Porsche’s DNA from the very first glance. The mullions are one example, echoing the unique stylistic motifs of the “Targa” version of several car models in the Porsche range, while another is the transom, which calls to mind the unusual lines of the futuristic automotive concept “Mission E”, recently developed by Porsche. Inspiration from the world of the legendary car maker infuses every detail, such as the external deck cushions which are fabric upholstered with a classic “Pepita” houndstooth pattern similar to the latest Porsche 991 REdition model. On board the Dynamiq GTT 115, both the furnishings and decor were devised in association with Minotti, the famous Italian design brand. Select pieces from the Minotti outdoor and indoor collections were chosen, including cladding in saddle brown leather and Luxor beige leather, paired with carbon fibre elements and extensive use of surfaces finished in Sahara Noir marble. The new Dynamiq GTT 115 not only offers exclusive style and prestigious luxury, but also generous space for the use of the owner and guests thanks to an innovative deck layout available in a three-cabin and a four-cabin version. By way of an example you only have to mention the garage which, most unusually on a motor yacht of this size, is located on the fore deck, which means that even when the boat is moored in port, a jet ski and a 15-foot tender can be launched and retrieved. However, it is probably the sun deck that best exemplifies the extraordinary abundance of space on board the vessel, with measurements that are genuinely unrivalled in this size class, even exceeding those usually found on motor yachts in the size class above. The magnificent sun deck on the Dynamiq GTT 115 has a length of 16.5 metres, or over 54 feet, and most importantly it offers a sensational surface area of 95 m2, or 1,022 square feet. The panoramic top deck of the motor yacht has been devised to offer maximum functionality, laid out in zones that ensure flexibility in terms of the use of the spaces and versatility for cruise activities, with two separate sunbathing areas, one with a Jacuzzi tub, as well as a bar area with a barbecue and an alfresco dining area which even has a
75-inch giant TV screen. Last but by no means least, the new Dynamiq GTT 115 will afford an outstanding level of comfort, partly thanks to a sophisticated stabilisation system using four electric fins and four interceptors, which can be used both in navigation and at anchor. Most importantly, perhaps, the yacht also has a low-resistance, high-efficiency hull that has not only been optimised for high performance but also specially designed to minimise the effects of vertical acceleration, even in rough seas. The hull shape and the propulsion system with pod units mean that the vessel’s draught remains below 1.5 metres, i.e. less than 5 feet, which allows for navigation in the shallow waters typical of the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.
