Monaco-headquartered Dynamiq has revealed details of its GTM 90, a 30-knot, all-aluminium motor yacht designed for regions including Asia, the Middle East and northern Europe.
Due to be presented at this year’s now-cancelled Geneva Motor Show, the first unit of the 27.5m yacht has been developed in cooperation with Germany’s Klassen, the exclusive car tuner that supplies the business and political elite – including over 10 national leaders – with ultra-luxury vans and limousines.
Dynamiq, which builds its Dutch-engineered superyachts in Italy, designed the sleek, sporty motor yacht not only to entertain but also protect guests whatever the weather.
Sergei Dobroserdov, founder of Dynamic, said: “Today a mainstream yacht up to 100ft is a ‘Med boat’, but we looked at the markets with more extreme climates where together with cruising excitement the yacht should be a safe shelter for guests when needed.
“Places like the Arabian Peninsula, Asian destinations and northern Europe. This is where the yacht needs to be open and full of sea breeze during the daytime but almost closed when evening comes and the temperature rapidly drops.
“At the moment, the only way to have large open or closed areas is to lengthen your yacht. However, by justifying the ‘IQ’ at the end of the Dynamiq brand name, we had the idea of combining these areas, so the aft beach club, dining area and open-style galley with bar can be transformed within seconds using sliding doors and foldable bulwarks.”
Designed by Dynamiq, the striking exterior styling owes much to automotive design with a superstructure that recalls the lines of supercars.
To enjoy the thrill of cruising at speed, guests can sit in a three-seat sofa in the bow or access the cosy sundeck with sunbed behind the radar mast. A Bowers & Wilkins audio system delivers high-end sound experience throughout the yacht.
The interior by Giuseppina Arena, another Dynamiq partner, features an aft-facing sofa in the beach club, which can be enclosed when the evenings turn chilly to create almost a ‘winter garden’ effect.
With 2.2m of headroom, the main deck features an aft dining area and a bar/galley, with fold-down bulwarks and sliding glass doors offering ventilation and views. Forward is the saloon and raised wheelhouse, the latter designed and manufactured by Klassen.
An alternative main-deck layout option includes combining the saloon and dining area to form a larger space for up to 16 people.
On the lower deck, the four guest cabins include a full-beam master stateroom midships, which has a distinctive circular bed from the Bentley Home collection in the corner. As a tribute to the Middle Eastern market, the owner’s bathroom is finished in fine onyx and equipped with a custom hammam for two people.
The interior decor mirrors the design features of exclusive Klassen cars, with different upholstery, rich wood panelling and elegant LED courtesy lights. The German brand is also responsible for the interior and exterior detailing including leather supply, stitching and other special automotive design features.
Paul Klassen, company founder and CEO, said: “Dynamiq and Klassen share the same values related to high-end materials, engineering, finishing and maximum comfort on board for their demanding clientele. It’s all about flawless perfection and first-class comfort on land and sea.”
Netherlands-based Van Oossanen Naval Architects, Dynamiq’s long-term partner, created an efficient, hard-chine hull that can achieve a top speed over 30 knots with three relatively compact Volvo Penta IPS-1350 pods. The yacht has a range of 800nm at 17 knots and can be equipped with a square, 5.5m-wide inflatable FunAir pool with protective net.
The GTM 90 Klassen edition starts from €7.5 million (about US$8.15 million) and can be personally configured at www.bedynamiq.com/models/configurator.htm, along with from GTT and Global models from Dynamiq, which is represented in Asia by Central Yacht.
