Dynamiq and Klassen Reveal Supercar Inspired Yacht Concept GTM 90
by Miranda Blazeby
Dynamiq has revealed a new 27 metre all-aluminium supercar inspired yacht developed in collaboration with car manufacturer Klassen.
Originally set to be unveiled at the cancelled Geneva Motor Show, the 27.5 metre GTM 90 is described as “fast and sporty” and features hull lines developed by Van Oossanen Naval Architects.
Power will come from three Volvo Penta IPS-1350 engines for a top speed of more than 30 knots and a cruising speed at 17 knots for an 800 nautical mile range.
Automotive inspired, the yacht's exterior is reminiscent of “the lines of some supercars”, the builder said.
Al fresco entertainment spaces are found at the sun deck, which is fitted with sunbeds, and sofa at the bow.
Brand founder Sergei Dobroserdov said the model is aimed at “markets with more extreme climates” where the yacht would "be a safe shelter for guests when needed.” These markets include the Arabian Peninsula, Asia and northern Europe.
"This is where the yacht needs to be open and full of sea breeze during the daytime, but almost closed when evening comes and the temperature rapidly drops. At the moment, the only way to have large open or closed areas is to lengthen your yacht."
He added: "We had the idea of combining these areas. So the aft beach club, dining area and open-style galley with bar can be transformed within seconds using sliding doors and foldable bulwarks.”
The interior design has been penned by Dynamiq partner Giuseppina Arena, is described as “rich and sophisticated”. It possesses some of the design features found in Klassen cars, such as rich wood panelling and LED lights. However, the builder said the model can be “personally configured”.
Accommodation is for a total of eight guests in four cabins on the lower deck, including a master stateroom with an eye-catching circular bed. Elsewhere, the owner’s bath, which will be finished in onyx and a custom hammam, was described as “a tribute to the Middle Eastern market”.
Paul Klassen, company founder and chief executive added: “Dynamiq and Klassen share the same values related to high-end materials, engineering, finishing and maximum comfort on board for their demanding clientele. It's all about flawless perfection and first-class comfort on land and sea.”
Prices for the GTM 90 Klassen edition start from €7,500,000.
