Yesterday, SuperYachtTimes.com visited the launch event, hosted at the Yacht Club de Monaco, of the new superyacht brand Dynamiq, developed by Sergey Dobroserdov. Dynamiq's first yacht is already well underway at the NCA shipyard in Carrara, Italy and will be launched in the summer of 2016.
Dynamiq introduced three aluminium superyacht models in their GTT – Gran Turismo Transatlantic range, all based on the principle that they offer high speeds, as well as longe range cruising capability. With a hull developed for Dynamiq by leading Dutch naval architects Azure and optimisation by world-renowned hydrodynamic specialists Van Oossanen, the yachts feature a highly effi cient hull shape.
The largest of the three is the D4L (Limousine), which measures 40 metres, followed by the 38.6 metre D4 and S4 series. The base model, the D4, is equipped with MAN diesels and Fortjes pod drive propulsion to give a maximum speed of 21 knots, while the D4 S (S stands for Sport) version features MTU engines and larger pods for a top speed of 25 knots. The S version also features carbon fibre styling details to the interior and exterior, model-specific paint options and further interior options not available on the base model.
The lengthened D4 L version is slightly larger than the other models, and the additional length is used to create a larger owner’s suite, main saloon and the sun deck.
The yachts offer a 120 square metre (1292 square feet) sundeck (128 square metres on the D4L version), divided into different segments; an aft sunbathing area, an alfresco dining area with optional home theatre, a bar and barbecue zone, a spa pool, and a forward sunbathing area that can also be specified as an optional exterior gym.
The base price for the D4 model is €13,900,000, while the D4 L will start from €14,750,000. The D4 S sport version is available from a start price of €15,500,000.
Interestingly, Dynamiq has also released an online configurator, much in the same way as the car industry does, but this is a first for the superyacht industry. It allows clients to select everything straight on the company’s site at www.bedynamiq.com – from the exterior paint scheme, interior finish, technical equipment, style accents, tender, crew uniforms, toys and even a crew car.
“Our goal was to create a next generation yacht for a new era – efficient, clean, easy to order and customize. And that’s what Dynamiq is all about,” explains Sergei Dobroserdov, the company’s founder and CEO.
The interior layout features a main deck saloon with dedicated forward dining area, while owner and guest en suite cabins are all located amidships on the lower deck for maximum comfort. Four or five guest cabin arrangements are available with crew quarters for six crew members
The overall interior design has been realised by world-renowned London studio Bannenberg & Rowell, and features an elegant, contemporary base style. Materials and finishes can be customised by the client, and there is also the option for a fully bespoke interior design from B&R for a fixed cost.
