For those who didn’t know yet, Porsche has a design consultancy firm Studio F. A. Porsche, which offers design solutions for pretty much anything. Knives, beer crates, electronics, skyscrapers, handbags, you name it and they can design it. You might remember their famous Blackberry P´9981.
The design studio is now working with Monaco’s Dynamiq Yachts, designing their GTT 115 Hybrid. The design is led by Managing Director Roland Heiler of Porsche Design Group. The first 35-metre version is already under construction in Viareggio, Italy, while the 100 and 85 foot models will be presented later this year.
GTT stands for Grand Turismo Transatlantic. The GTT 115 features a round bilge aluminium hull and a specially engineered stabilisation system from Humphree with four electric fins and interceptors. Two Dutch companies have played a key role in the GTT series. Vripack has developed the hull lines of the GTT 115, while Van Oossanen is responsible for the naval architecture of the GTT 100 and GTT 85 models.
Powered by twin 1213 kW MAN engines paired with the latest Fortjes 5000 pods, the superyacht can exceed a max speed of 21 knots and is capable of crossing the Atlantic with a range of 3,400 NM. The optional hybrid system comprises of two 20.8 kW electric motors, allowing the yacht to reach 6 knots. All the options can be configured via the Dynamiq Configurator on Dynamiq’s website.
Other notable technical features include two technical compartments or engine rooms, with twin 45 kW Fischer Panda variable-speed generators located in the bow.
The interior features three or four luxury cabins with Saddle brown and Luxor beige leather with carbon fibre details, and expansive surfaces of Sahara Noir marble. The furniture and decoration were developed in association with the Italian designer brand Minotti.
Available in the signature Porsche Carrara white, Rhodium Silver, Chalk or custom Monte-Carlo Blue exterior colours, the GTT 115 boasts refined lines with signature Porsche elements, such as the Targa-style mullions or the transom design that echoes the Mission E concept. The deck cushions feature fabric centres with a classic Pepita houndstooth pattern, similar to the latest 991 R edition.
Only seven GTT 115 will be made and prices start from €11,900,000 if you’re curious.
