Dynamiq introduces new GTT 165 yacht project
by Chris Jefferies
The Dynamiq range of configurable superyachts looks set to grow after the yard revealed the first details of its forthcoming GTT 165 project.
As with the debut Dynamiq yacht Jetsetter, which hit the water in the summer of 2016, exterior styling comes courtesy of Dobroserdov Design, but this time on a much larger 50 metre scale with 450GT of interior space, including an optional skylounge.
Sergei Dobroserdov, founder and CEO of Dynamiq, said, “The GTT 165 is aimed at today’s active owners who spend most of their time on deck in the open air and want to experience different destinations, or cross the Atlantic quickly and enjoy endless summers in the Med and Caribbean on a more manageable and economical size of yacht at the very attractive starting price of €24,400,000.”
Accommodation for up to 12 guests is offered in a choice of a five or six cabin layout, while the crew quarters is suitable for a staff of up to nine people.
Key features include a superyacht beach club enclosed in glass with a dedicated spa area that can be easily converted into a gymnasium. Meanwhile, the almost 20 metre long superyacht sundeck would include a cinema lounge with a 75-inch screen, as well as a bar area, Jacuzzi, and plenty of room for sunbathing.
Dutch hydrodynamic specialist Van Oossanen Naval Architects designed the Dynamiq GTT 165’s fast displacement hull, which features an aft hull vane and a forward T-foil, developed in collaboration with Naiad Dynamics. These two elements will combine to provide lift underway, thus decreasing drag, improving fuel efficiency and increasing the maximum speed possible.
As a result, the Dynamiq GTT 165 will boast a top speed of 20 knots when fitted with twin MTU V8 engines. Transatlantic cruising will be possible at 17 knots and the maximum range of 4,000 nautical miles would be achieved at an economical speed of 12 knots.
Those looking to prioritise speed can upgrade to the GTS version, which will offer a more powerful engine set-up for a top speed of 25 knots, while the zero-emission cruising mode will offer silent cruising at up to six knots.
To further enhance the GTT 165’s environmental credentials, a solar array measuring 55 square metres will be made available. This option will allow for silent overnight operations without the need to use the generators. On a final technical note, the yard adds that the Humphree stabilisation system would be used to ensure that the ride is both smooth and powerful.
“Price and performance are the key factors here,” Dobroserdov continued. “There are so many 50 metre yachts below 500GT available, but we asked ourselves ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients?’ The answer in simple terms is a slender hull with a long waterline that is much more efficient and more comfortable in motion than a short, wide one.
“So rather than maximising interior volume, together with the naval architects we analysed everything an owner wants or needs in terms of general arrangement and features. We arrived at a concept that provides the motion comfort of a 55 metre yacht with a conventional flared bow.”
Dynamiq expects to begin construction at its Viareggio facility before the end of the year with a view to delivering the GTT 165 in early 2021.
