The Italian Sea Group has unveiled the new Perini Navi fleet named Genesis. It happened one year after the brand acquisition. It includes three sailing yacht models in the sizes of: 48, 56, and 77 meters. The series consist of 48m regatta and cruise versions, the 56m ketch and the 77m Falcon Rig. They are all characterized by large spaces, brightness, easy-sailing, and comfort.
The external lines of the Genesis fleet reflect two essential assumptions: the desire to reinterpret in a contemporary way the signature features of the “Perini Navi Style”, renowned throughout the world for their elegance and beauty, and at the same time the intention to express a timeless and contemporary design projected into the future.
The new 48-meter, which will be offered in regatta and cruise versions, features new generation hull lines. The open stern, equipped with a transformer, will facilitate access to the sea offering great comfort particularly at anchorage. The sail system handling system will continue to be concentrated in the two command consoles, with a series of joysticks that facilitate single-man control without the need for dedicated crew. The superstructure, which has been restyled, will keep Perini Navi’s distinctive stylistic cues: side epaulet, a double round glass stripe providing great light and an enclosed aft cockpit to offer more privacy.
The new 48-meter sailing yacht will have new hull lines to offer limited heeling angles while sailing, double…

A central Auckland boatyard considered “vital” for keeping biosecurity threats at bay is now set to be bulldozed, amid accusations that wealthy yachties are calling the shots. Jonathan Killick investigates.
Liz Alonzi doesn’t want to sell her 10-foot trimaran, but may have no choice. With the closure of the Okahu Bay Hardstand in Ōrākei, the next-closest location she can service her vessel is in Whangārei.
“It’s either that or pay $1500 an hour to hire a crane, which I can’t do,” she said, explaining that other Auckland marinas were not equipped for trimarans.
The closure came as a surprise to some; cleaning is critical for Auckland boaties due to new rules introduced to stop the spread of invasive seaweed caulerpa brachypus, and Auckland Council had previously spent $3 million upgrading the site’s cleaning facilities in 2007.

Auckland has a chronic shortage of marine cleaning facilities, with a council-commissioned report by consultancy Ecometrics finding the city only had a third of the capacity needed to properly clean its 8800-strong fleet.
Co-chair of the Tāmaki Estuary Environmental Forum Bruce Kendall said the lack…

“And then there were 10, as they say,” said Bob Trombetta, a member of the Redondo Beach Yacht Club from 1994 to the end, on Monday.
The club operated at the northeast corner of King Harbor for the past 31 years. Before that it was in a trailer. It began as the “Palos Verdes Yacht Club,” inside the Princess Louise, a former harbor attraction.
Last week, the club’s final 10 members converged for the last rounds of clearing out their space.
The clubhouse – behind the S.E.A. Lab building – with open views of the marina, included a kitchen, a full bar, a main seating area and a patio overlooking the docks.
The calendar on the club’s website is now empty – is it because it hasn’t been updated, or is it really finished?
“I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this, I’m sad it’s closing under my watch,” said Commodore Kieran Harrington. “But the board members did the best they possibly could.”
Trombetta noted rent increases since the King Harbor lease was taken over in 2020 by Allen Ginsberg’s Majestic KHM.
“A perfect storm,” Trombetta said. “The pandemic gave us a pretty good shellacking. We just kind of got priced out of business.”
Since the yacht club was a non-profit with no employees, it did not meet the requirements for government aid during the pandemic.
“We checked every box possible for not getting relief,” Trombetta said, a Hermosa Beach resident who joined the Redondo Beach Yacht Club (RBYC)…

Arcadia Yachts has signed a contract for a new A105. It will be the fourth hull to be built by the yard for a repeat Turkish client, who previously owned an A85. The orders for one of the two Sherpa 80s and the fourth A105 – the second Arcadia yacht sold to this owner – are being completed in partnership with Tezmarin, an important Turkish dealer that distributes some of the most famous brands in this sector.
In line with Arcadia Yachts’ design philosophy, this fourth A105 is characterized by the generosity of both its interior and exterior spaces, designed, built and furnished to create a totally seamless environment that arouses feelings of coziness, transparency and connection with the very essence of the sea.
The six-cabin layout features spaces for convivial living, extensive use of solar panels, up&down windows and advanced technical solutions that make the most of sea breezes even in the indoor living areas. The semi-displacement hull ensures cruising comfort and an appreciable reduction in consumption levels.

The first B.Now 50M with the Oasis Deck® was launched yesterday at the Livorno yard. This superyacht is the first steel unit in the family to introduce the Oasis Deck beach area solutions that has rewritten the history of the Benetti.
The new model has been built for an experienced owner who was impressed by the style and design of 107m gigayacht Lana and the adventurous Oasis 34M and wanted to replicate the solutions proposed by Benetti in these two models on her own yacht, which has many of the features typically found on much larger custom vessels.
B.Now 50M Oasis Deck® is the first model in the B.Now family to be equipped with the Oasis Deck® solution and precedes the 60-, 67- and 72-meter maxi yachts penned by the visionary RWD. The UK-based firm has developed for this yacht a design to meet the aspirations of a new generation of owners seeking a more convivial and less formal onboard lifestyle, but one that is always in close contact with the water. Hence the absence of bulwarks and ceilings hindering the view out over the water, so that the owner and their guests can enjoy the sensory benefits it brings even when at anchor.
The focus of convivial living on board remains the Oasis Deck®, a feast for the eyes with the de rigueur infinity pool just steps from the water’s edge. The right combination of sun and shade means that guests can enjoy this chic private oasis at any time of day, while the even larger space created by opening…

A yacht chartered by six shadowy operatives with fake passports, explosives delivered to the crew in the dead of night, and a mysterious organization outside the control of a nation state.
These are ingredients in a compelling new theory that’s beginning to emerge for the unsolved bomb attacks against the $20 billion Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines on September 26 2022.
The huge explosions caused an estimated $500 million of damage and leave serious doubts about whether this major infrastructure network, built to transport gas from Russia to Western Europe, will ever be repaired. The attack triggered an ongoing blame game between Moscow and the West as international authorities struggle to pinpoint a culprit.
Investigators have now zeroed in on a 50ft sailing yacht, named Andromeda, as a crucial piece in the puzzle. Andromeda left a German port in early September carrying six individuals who rented the boat using high-quality fake passports – then embarked on a journey that took it directly over the blast area.
In another intriguing twist, a huge oil tanker, the Minerva Julie, spent an entire week circling a section of ocean spookily close to the area at around the same time as Andromeda’s voyage. It’s led some observers to ask: was this more than coincidence?
A theory has emerged about the Nord Stream attacks which speculates a yacht hired in Germany was used by operatives who planted the bombs. The group are thought to have taken delivery of the explosives at a…

The Italian Sea Group (TISG) has announced a new line of three Perini Navi sailing yachts measuring from 48 metres to 77 metres (157 feet to 252 feet).
Named Genesis, the fleet will include a 48m (157ft) model available in both ‘regatta’ and ‘cruise’ editions, a 56m (183ft) ketch designed by Malcolm McKeon and a 77m (252ft) falcon-rigged superyacht.
Smooth handling and generous interior volumes are key elements of the Genesis line, with new elements including a blue leather handrail that will become a signature detail on the future Perini Navi fleet. In terms of design, the series will take all of the ‘iconic’ elements of Perini Navi yachts and redesign them in a modern way.
Across all the Genesis fleet, the stern has been envisioned as a key al fresco relaxation zone complete with seating and waterfront access.
On the 77m (252ft) Perini Navi Genesis, the yacht’s stern will be equipped with a full-size spa-beach club with unfolding terraces and renderings indicate the superyacht will also have a forward firepit. An electro-hydraulic mast-sail management system will ensure easy and straightforward handling.
The 48m (157ft) is the entry-level addition to the line, and comes in two different versions to suit buyers looking for regatta racing as well as leisurely cruising.
A spokesperson for The Italian Sea Group said, “The sail system handling system will continue to be concentrated in the two command consoles, with a series of joysticks that facilitate…
