” Mercedes-AMG and the Cigarette Racing Team join forces again with the 42’ Huntress, inspired by the legendary G63 AMG. Like the G63, the Huntress is a combination of high performance and rugged durability: a luxurious deck and cabin atop a fast hull and five racing engines. It’s as serious on water as the G63 is on land. See the 42’ Huntress at the Miami International Boat Show on February 14th.”
” A recent visit to New Bern, NC, home of Pepsi and Hatteras, allowed us to catch up on the construction of its new flagship: the Hatteras 100 RPH.
At one point or another, all companies face this challenge when introducing a new model: How do you strike the right balance between innovation and tradition without losing loyal customers? Hatteras Yachts, which recently designed its flagship and is well into the build of Hull No. One of its new 100-foot raised pilothouse motoryacht, seems to be on the right track.
When we visited in early August, there was much to see of the new flagship, including the elegant composite hull, fresh out of the mold, and a full-size mockup of the lower, main and upper decks, spread out in a rented commercial space close to the shipyard.
Every component of the interior, from the beds to the helm console, coffee tables and lounge chairs on the sun deck, were built to scale in cardboard and plywood. The mockup had the dual purpose of helping the Hatteras design team—under the guidance of Hatteras’ manager of product design, David Brown—come up with the best spatial arrangements and also affords owners the opportunity to give their input while getting a feel for the new motoryacht. ”

“Ports Of Cause (POC), the brainchild of Joyce Clear of Clear Group International, is an innovative superyacht initiative designed to promote yachting and to “give back.”
At the heart of the concept is a newly refurbished yacht, the 116-foot classic yacht Highlander, which will serves as an ambassador of the superyacht community and support worthwhile charities through events and other initiatives.
Since coming up with the idea, Clear has worked tirelessly to find a flagship and make Ports of Cause a reality. Her hard work paid off. POC’s flagship is the renowned Highlander, a 1967-built Feadship motoryacht now owned by Victor Muller, CEO of Dutch super car manufacturer Spyker NV. Highlander was built for Malcolm Forbes, who used the yacht for business and pleasure. The yacht traveled the world, entertaining kings and queens, presidents, business moguls, movie stars and celebrities “
