63 meter Turkish Superyacht Is Latest Espen Oeino Masterpiece

Posted on

WELCOME IRIMARI

The naval architects at Espen Oeino International S.A.R.L. continue to raise the bar of superyacht design.  Their latest offering is Sunrise Yachts motor yacht IRIMARI.

Delivered to her owner in July, the 63 meter yacht is currently cruising in the Greek islands.  So far there is no word if the vessel will be entering the Greek yacht charter fleet.

 

Sunrise 63 yacht IRIMARI makes her official debut at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.

Per our friends at Boat International, one exciting “superfeature” to be expected inside motoryacht Irimari is “…a video wall spanning two decks!

Espen Oeino International is considered one of the leading design studios of private yacht charter vessels.  They base in Monaco.  Their specialty is in the category of Superyachts.  Their portfolio includes Lurssen motor yacht MARTHA ANN, and the world’s largest yacht available for charter, Fincantieri yacht SERENE.

 

TURKISH BUILDER

The launch of yacht IRIMARI marks the first of the Sunrise 63 series to splash down for the Turkish builder.  The Espen Oeino designed yacht features interiors by Focus Yacht Design and naval architecture by Unique Yacht Design. Built with a high tensile steel hull and aluminum superstructure, the yacht has a transatlantic range of 5,000 miles, and a top speed of 17 knots.

Her owner initially plans spending time onboard. We hope to see this beautiful yacht enter the charter marketplace.

Celebrity NFL Owners’ Superyachts

Posted on

KEEPING IT LIGHT

From time to time, we like to take a light-hearted look at the world of yachting.  Yacht names inspired by love is always a hoot.  We still chuckle at the comments we get about our salmon skin blog [Yes, some luxury yacht charter vessels DO use salmon skin for upholstery.  NO, it doesn’t smell fishy!!!].

 

GAME ON!

Let’s have some fun and play a game about well-known NFL owners and their personal superyachts.   For every correct answer give yourself 1 to 5 points, depending upon the degree of difficulty.   At the end of the blog, we’ll tell you what you win based on your total points.  Let’s get started!!!

MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION

This is a multiple choice question (3 points):

In January, 2020, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren takes aim and calls out an NFL owner and his purchase of a superyacht. On Twitter she says,

“This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a ‘superyacht’ with its own iMax theater. I’m pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt.”

Is the owner:

  1. Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins #miamidolphins
  2. Daniel Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins #washingtonredskins
  3. Stan Kroenke, owner of the Los Angeles Rams
  4. Patrick Bowlen, owner of the Denver Broncos

 

The answer is…

 

 

 

(scroll down)

 

 

 

  1. Daniel Snyder is the target of Warren’s ire. Warren wants to impose a 2% surcharge on personal fortunes of $50 million or more, and a 3% fee at $1 billion.  Mr. Snyder is probably happy to know Ms. Warren is no longer a candidate for president of the United States!

 

 

TRUE OR FALSE QUESTION

True or False (2 points)

 

Arthur Blank the owner of the Atlanta Falcons built two tenders to shuttle passengers to and from his superyacht.  True of False?  Blank named the tenders, “Molly” and “Max,” the names of his parents?

 

The answer is…

 

 

 

(scroll down)

 

 

 

TRUE

 

Blank actually built three tenders for his superyacht.  Here is his explanation as to the names he selected for his tenders:

“I personally, carefully chose the names of our three beautiful custom Compass tenders. ‘Soul Purpose’ reflects how being at sea stirs the soul to dream of peace and happiness and a higher purpose in life. The other two tenders, ‘Max’ and ‘Molly’ were named in honor of my parents, which is my way of revering their memory and keeping them forever close to me wherever I travel. They both loved the ocean. I am sure they would have gotten a kick out of knowing I lent their names to such worthy recipients.”

 

 

QUESTION

Match Game (4 points)

 

This game is fairly straightforward, but easy to get incorrect.  Match the name of the yacht owner with the name of the yacht he owns:

 

Name of Owner                      Name of Yacht

 

Daniel Snyder                        Kismet

 

Shad Khan                              Bravo Eugenia

 

Arthur Blank                         DreAMBoat

 

Jerry Jones                            Lady S

 

The answer is…

 

 

 

 

(scroll down)

 

 

 

Daniel Snyder owns motor yacht LADY S

Shad Khan owns motor yacht KISMET

Arthur Blank owns motor yacht  DreAMBoat

Jerry Jones owns motor yacht BRAVO EUGENIA

 

 

THE CLUB

Now, let’s take a look at the NFL Owners Superyacht Club.

 

  • YACHT LADY S.  Daniel Snyder is the owner of the Washington Redskins.  He now takes a seat at the table in the NFL superyacht clubhouse as the owner of the 305 foot Feadship yacht LADY S.  The luxury yacht charter vessel is a 2019 model and is built by Feadship.  The striking exterior is a Michael Leach design and the interior is crafted by Reymond Langton.  Amenities include a one-of-a-kind IMAX theater, fully-certified helipad, and four VIP suites with 8k TVs.

 

  • YACHT KISMET.  This is the 312 foot yacht of Shad Khan. Khan is the owner of the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars.   Lurssen Shipyard in Germany is the builder of the yacht.  Espen Øeino International is the exterior designer and Reymond Langton Design is responsible for the interior. Notable features include not one but two helicopter pads, a private observation platform with an outdoor bed created for stargazing.

 

THE CLUB CONTINUES

 

  • YACHT DreAMBoat.  This is another yacht in the 90 meter range.  The 295 foot yacht is a 2019 model, built by Oceanco in the Netherlands.  Arthur Blank, the owner of the Atlanta Falcons, built this yacht for his family’s personal use. Espen Oeino is the exterior designer, and Terence Disdale is the designer of the interior.  Note the middle letters in the yacht’s name spell, “AMB” – the initials of the owner, Arthur M Blank.  The owner has a large family of children and grandchildren, and this yacht has accommodations for up to 23 passengers.

 

  • YACHT BRAVO EUGENIA.  The final member of the 90 meter NFL Owner’s Superyacht Club is this 357 foot yacht.  Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys owns this 2018 yacht.  Oceanco is the builder, and Nuvolari & Lenard is the designer of the exterior.  Reymond Langton Design is responsible for the interior.  There are two helicopter landing pads.  Specifically, one is on the foredeck, and another on the main deck aft. There is also a wellness center with sauna, as well as a steam room and plunge pool.

 

 

WINNER, WINNER, CHICKEN DINNER!

Designer Brings CURB APPEAL to Luxury Yachts

Posted on

 CURB APPEAL

As every real estate agent knows – if you can’t get prospective buyers to “love” the exterior of a house, your probably won’t convince them to take a look inside.  That initial “wow” factor, known as “Curb Appeal” is critical in enticing buyers to explore, and appreciate, the entire property, inside and out.  

 

EXTERIOR OF YACHT

The same principle holds true for potential charterers. That first look at the exterior styling of a yacht either piques their interest, or they continue to walk the boat show docks until something clicks.
 
Perhaps no yacht designer understands this principle better than Espen Øino.  Like Gianni Versace and luxury clothing, the name Espen Øino is synonymous with contemporary naval architecture.

ESPEN OEINO DESIGNER

Øino (sometimes written as Espen Oeino) has created some of the modern legends in the charter marketplace, including  Lürssen yacht charter vessels 78m yacht TV (ex-MadSummer), 70m yacht MARTHA ANN, and 60m yacht SOLEMATES.

The prolific designer began his career at the Martin Francis Design Studio, where he became project manager of the legendary Eco project, now known as the iconic ENIGMA.

 

HOW DID ESPEN START?

In 1994, after eight years working as a consulting engineer and naval architect for Martin Francis, Espen set up his own design company: Espen Øino International (EOI). The Monaco-based studio is today one of the leading designers of large custom yachts.

Espen and his team of naval architects have a client base stretching from Asia and the Far East to the USA and Central America. Recent projects to splash down are Viareggio Superyachts vessels 62m yacht CANDYSCAPE II and 62m yacht RoMa.

 

PROJECTS

Multiple current projects exist from this man. He is known as “creator of some of the world’s most famous.”  Additionally, outstanding yachts.  The yacht include several high-profile Lürssen vessels. In addition, two very large yachts under construction at the Fincantieri Yard in La Spezia, Italy.

Mediterranean yacht charter fans may not know Espen’s name.  Coincidentally, the yacht that first caught their eye for its elegant lines was designed by this industry icon.

Top 3 Luxury Yacht Charter Amenities for 2018

Posted on

FLOATING VILLA AMENITIES

The world’s largest yachts continue to grow larger and larger each year.  The ideas of superyacht owners as to what features and amenities will make their, “floating villas” stand out from the crowd also expand.  This demand for over-the-top luxury pushes high-profile yacht designers to continually “reinvent” the ultimate onboard amenities.

No longer is an ondeck Jacuzzi style spa satisfactory. Now, the hot tub must double as a wave-generating swimming pool.  That pool needs a backlit waterfall cascading over the edge of the spa into a smaller reflection pool.  Along a similar innovation path, our company President, Jana Sheeder, recently toured a new build megayacht with designer Evan Marshall.  The Marshall-designed yacht features a sundeck with a sunken-floor lounge area. This area can be flooded with several inches of water, to create a faux beach atmosphere.  The legs of the chaise lounges sit in the cool water!  Talk about relaxation!

Company President, Jana Sheeder, and our charter team return from the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.  Many manufacturers and designers display their latest innovations and concepts there.  In addition, our Team takes notes of the latest trends that are becoming more popular with superyacht owners and designers.  Here are the top three amenity design trends seen for 2018.

 

1.  OVERSIZED WET BARS

Sundeck bars are larger now.  Previously, their smaller size made room for the storage of watertoys on deck.  As more yachts keep the tenders and toys in garages, the ability to expand ondeck amenities has seen an increase.  This increase results in large outdoor wetbars, built with luxurious stones, polished finishes, and mood lighting.   The bars are focal points ondeck.  They are places where families and friends gather for extended periods.  These areas are perfect for socializing and enjoying the fresh air and sea views.

One of the most magnificent outdoor bars is located on the sundeck of Lurssen yacht SOLANDGE.  The large curved bar is positioned to the port side and boasts an opaque lighting design that creates a glamorous evening hang-out.   This 85 meter Lürssen superyacht was designed by Espen Øeino and has many other notable design features, including a spectacular superyacht fireplace.

 

 

 

 

2.  LIFESTYLE WELLNESS ROOMS

Fun, unusable rooms are popular on the largest superyachts.  Amenities from superyacht gyms and spas, to cinemas and nightclubs.  These designs around the owner’s passions and what they think will appeal to yacht charter guests.  Designer Tim Heywood reflects on the trend:

“Lifestyle-specific rooms — from casinos to underwater viewing rooms to other ideas such as snow rooms, meditation spaces, art galleries or anything designed to meet an owner’s particular needs — have all featured in my designs. In fact, our first cryotherapy room is in production, and it won’t be the last.”

Interior designers Redman Whiteley Dixon created an amazing wellness area onboard the 63 meter Feadship motor yacht LADY BRITT.  The standout room in this area is the Finnish sauna.  It opens on to the ocean.  #Namaste …  Charter guests can heat up, then take a plunge in the cool ocean. The wellness area features space for massage and hairdressing.  In addition, the gym’s panoramic sliding glass doors open to the large spa pool on the sundeck.

 

3.  BEACH CLUBS

More designers now relegate tenders and watertoys to side-opening garages on superyachts.  Prime aft areas that once housed these items are being redesigned with hydraulic balconies and decks to serve as open–air beach clubs.  First generation beach clubs are little more than extended swim platforms with tender garages. These are emptied of their contents to make room for a lounge chair or two.  Newer designs offer bars, lounges, and spa access points.  The best of the new generation clubs serve as all-round waterfront entertaining venues.

 

Rarely do you find beach clubs on sailboats, yet sail yacht AQUIJO is anything but an ordinary sailboat.  The editors of Boat International magazine described her club area.

“As the world’s largest ketch, she has more than enough room to accommodate a spacious beach club, complete with a hammam [turkish steam bath], sauna and a spectacular spa pool that is illuminated by a large skylight. As if all that wasn’t impressive enough, the watertight aft doors mean that (sail yacht) Aquijo’s beach club can still be used when she’s sailing along at her brisk top speed of 20 knots.”  Amazing…

 

Incredible jacuzzis and beach clubs abound on the world’s newest superyachts.  Enjoy reading about yet another spectacular yacht, King Baby, at https://www.1800yachtcharters.com/yacht-maven-scores-first-charter-on-yacht-king-baby-edgy-rock-n-roll-themed-superyacht/
