Remember the Dynamiq GTT 115 hybrid superyacht designed by Porsche? Well, the same combination has revealed their latest and largest model, the GTT 165.
The USP of the GTT 165 is that for the first time, a superyacht is equipped with two underwater foils: an aft Hull Vane and a forward T-foil developed by Dutch hydrodynamics specialists Van Oossanen in association with US-based Naiad Dynamics. As the yacht increases its speed, the foils lift the hull up, decreasing drag and increasing speed. As a result, the 50-metre yacht is capable of doing 20 knots and is also capable of crossing the Atlantic at 17 knots. For those who want even more speed, a GTS version is available powered by more powerful engines that can reach 25 knots.
Just like the GTT 115, the 165 too has a hybrid propulsion system. The sunroof can be fitted with 55 sq/m of solar panels that help to recharge the lithium-ion battery pack. Running on ‘green’ electrical power, the yacht can stay at anchor in complete silence overnight with no generators running, or provide a couple of hours of low-speed “breakfast cruising” in zero-emission mode, the company said. Speaking of the generators, the 165 has 2x 100 kW Kohler units.
The GTT 165 is available in two versions: a 5-cabin layout (with a second master suite on the lower deck) or 6-cabin layout. A glass-covered beach club houses a dedicated spa area that can be also fitted out as a gym. In addition to the lounge and socializing zone on the main deck aft, there is a huge sun deck of almost 20 metres in length with dining facilities for a full complement of guests, bar, cinema lounge with 75″ TV, and Jacuzzi with sunbathing area. More information on the GTT 165 can be found here.
“Price and performance are the key factors here,” said Sergei Dobroserdov, founder and CEO of Dynamiq. “There are so many 50-metre yachts available, but we asked ourselves ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients and offers them more?’ 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.”
