Aggressive lines, aluminum construction, maximum customization: Dynamiq presented the design of its new 50 meters, bordering on the 500 GT.
Sergei Dobroserdov, founder and CEO of Dynamiq, has very clear ideas: “The idea was to come up with something completely new in the 50-meter and 500 GT superyacht segment. Here the market is very crowded but with boats all very similar in shape and functional choices. We asked ourselves ‘What can we launch on the market that makes more sense to our customers?’. The answer came thinking about the priorities of today’s owners.”
So what are the keywords of the GTT 160 project? “Comfort on board, efficiency – in propulsion and construction processes, – and price,” said Dobroserdov, who then specified, precisely on the subject of efficiency. “In terms of naval architecture, we chose to make a slim, long waterline hull, much more efficient and comfortable than a short and wide one. Therefore, rather than maximizing the internal volumes, we have analyzed in detail everything a shipowner needs in terms of layout and outfitting. The result is a very different type of hull, starting from the upside-down bow, which will provide great comfort at sea”.
The price has also been announced, starting at 19.9 million Euros. As always Dynamiq guarantees maximum customization (and there is a special configurator on the site). The delivery time is 24 months.
The GTT 160 is 49.5 meters long and entirely made of aluminum. It accommodates twelve guests, six crew members. For the owners, there is an enormous suite at the bow, on the main deck, with two fixed balconies.
Like all Dynamiq models, the GTT 160 is designed in the Principality of Monaco, built in Italy (in Massa) and engineered in Holland. The exterior design is the work of Dobroserdov himself, the interior design is by Giuseppina Arena and the yard’s design team. Van Oossanen Naval Architects designed the water lines and the yacht can reach, in its standard version, a top speed of 17 knots with two 6-cylinder MAN engines (537 kW), while the cruising speed is 14 knots. The range is transatlantic, at 10 knots you can cover 4,000 nautical miles.
There is also an S version, equipped with two MAN V12-1800s for a maximum speed of 23 knots. A hybrid system with the electric mode is also available, to sail at zero emissions up to 8 knots. Finally, the GTT 160 is equipped with a garage aft for an eight-meter tender and, at the bow, a touch-and-go heliport capable of weighing 3,000 kg at take-off.
