Dynamiq has unveiled the GTT 165, an all-aluminum design that would be the largest yacht yet from the Italian shipyard.
The GTT 165’s exterior is by Dobroserdov Design. Van Oossanen in the Netherlands developed the fast-displacement hull, which is designed with two underwater foils that U.S.-based Naiad Dynamics helped to create. As the yacht increases speed, the foils lift the hull, decreasing drag.
Dynamiq says the result will be a 20-knot top speed, powered by standard twin V-8 MTU engines, or a 25-knot top-end with optional power plants. At 12 knots, range is expected to be 4,000 nautical miles.
Stabilization is by Humphree; flexible solar panels and Lithium-ion batteries help to reduce energy draw; and zero-emission cruising is possible at 5 to 6 knots, the builder says.
Accommodations options: Owners can choose a five- or six-stateroom layout for as many as 12 guests, plus quarters for nine crew.
Top-end: 20 knots
Engines: 2/1,250 hp MTU 8V 2000 M94 diesels
Base price: About $29.5 million.
