” This enormous megayacht concept comes from the specialist superyacht division of the Chinese CIMC Raffles shipyard. She follows the sale of the yard’s 88.8 metre new build superyacht Illusion, which is due for delivery in late 2015.”
Here is a video of Illusion …
” Based on her smaller sistership Illusion, Estatement was designed by Sinot Exclusive Yacht Design. She will feature an 18.1 metre beam, a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure with a displacement of 5,500 gross tons.
Her spacious, contemporary interior will accommodate 22 guests in a master stateroom, two VIP cabins and eight double cabins. She will also be able to accommodate 35 crew.
With a fuel capacity of 300,000 litres, Estatement will have a cruising speed of 15 knots and a top speed of 17.5 knots. She is expected to have a range of 6,000 nautical miles.
As well as presenting the Estatement concept, Pride Mega Yachts will also be providing an update on Illusion‘s building progress at the Monaco boat show. “

” 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. “

When The Holiday Inn Just Won’t Do
“When you’re taking a trip, whether for business or for pleasure, you want to be comfortable. And for most of us, being “comfortable” away from home simply means staying in a clean hotel room that has cable, a mini fridge, and a clean shower. However, as the rich people of the world demonstrate time and time again, “comfort” is a relative term.”
