Monaco-based shipyard Dynamiq has unveiled its first superyacht in the new range developed in cooperation with Studio F.A. Porsche. The first model, a 35-meter GTT 115 Hybrid, is currently under construction at the shipyard in Viareggio, Italy, while 100- and 90-foot models are in development.
Vripack designed the hull lines for the GTT 115, while Van Oossanen is responsible for the GTT 100 and GTT 90 models.
A limited edition of just seven GTT 115 yachts will be manufactured, making the model a truly unique collector’s edition. Prices for the GTT 115 start from Euro 11,900,000, with a short delivery time of 15 months from the date of order.
Here, Dynamiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov shares some insight into the brand and its alliance with the iconic motoring marque.
How long has Dynamiq been in business?
Dynamiq was started in Monaco in 2011 by experienced yacht broker Sergei Dobroserdov, who assembled a ‘dream team’ of world thinkers, yacht designers and naval architects to turn the GTT concept into reality.
What models has the company launched?
Dynamiq unveiled its first launch, 39m Jetsetter, at the 2016 Monaco Yacht Show to wide acclaim. The next project, the GTT 115, is currently in build. Developed in conjunction with the renowned design firm Studio F.A. Porsche, the 35-metre yacht is due to launch in autumn 2017. Her world debut will take place at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show and the yacht will attend subsequent international events.
What are the benefits of the alliance with Porsche Design?
“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,” said Roland Heiler the CEO of Studio F.A. Porsche. The sporty exterior design by Studio F.A. Porsche matches the yacht’s noteworthy performance, and the name says it all: GTT stands for Gran Turismo Transatlantic.
What are the hallmarks of Dynamiq that distinguish your vessels in the market?
All aluminum construction, north European engineering, Italian style, 21knots speed, low fuel consumption, Transatlantic range, large sundeck comparable to a 50-plus-metre motor yacht, large windows, ceiling heights to more than 2.15-metres and many other features.
What is your ambition in terms of international sales and representation?
Our idea is to create a network of high skill professionals able to transfer the concept of our yachts and all the features to the potential clients. In other words, we are trying to have ambassador in strategic places able to educate potential buyers to what the real use of the yacht will be and not just length, engines and price. In our yacht, there is much more to understand.
Where have you identified your main markets?
Our target clients might include those who are looking to downsize from larger 50- or 60-metre yachts. 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 realisation of utmost comfort and a sporty lifestyle in a practical and relatively compact package. At the same time, we are looking for growing clients who are looking for a mega yacht quality in a more manageable size.
How important is the Asia-Pacific market in your plans?
Asia-Pacific market is very important for us. We do believe are yachts fulfill the needs of yacht Owner looking for a modern yacht able to truly live the ocean. In fact, the whole concept of our constructions is to supply a yacht able to cruise around islands with shallow draft and get as close as possible to nice berthing areas.
What models are on the drawing board for the next two to five years?
The first 35-metre Dynamiq GTT 115 Hybrid is already under construction in Viareggio, Italy, while 100- and 90-foot models are in development and will be presented later this year. Last but not least the GTT 150 Hybrid which represent the flagship at this moment.
