The Dynamiq range of configurable superyachts is working on a new project— a new GTT 160. The all-aluminum 160-foot (49.5-meter) sporty vessel is aimed at today’s active owners who want to experience different destinations or cross the Atlantic quickly and enjoy endless summers in the Med and Caribbean on a more manageable and economical size of yacht.
With racy, contemporary styling by Dobroserdov Design, the GTT 160 offers accommodation for 12 guests in six cabins and crew quarters for up to eight staff. The master stateroom is on the main deck forward and features two large fixed side balconies. The galley with breakfast bar is designed for use by both a professional chef or for cooking in the company of friends.
The upper deck includes a cinema lounge with a 75-inch screen, as well as a bar area. The sun deck hosts a second helm position with great views and plenty of room for sunbathing. Unusually, the main deck aft is devised as a massive beach club with a hot tub for 12 people and enclosed spa area with sauna, hammam and a convertible gymnasium with space for a massage table.
The GTT 160 not only looks amazing but also features advanced onboard technology. Dutch hydrodynamic specialist Van Oossanen Naval Architects, Dynamiq long-term partners, designed the fast displacement hull with an aft Hull Vane foil for extra lift underway that decreases drag and improves fuel efficiency. As a result, the yacht can achieve a top speed of 17 knots when fitted with MAN 6-cylinder (537 kW) engines.
Transatlantic crossings are possible at 14 knots and the maximum range at an economical speed of 10 knots is 4,000 nautical miles. Those looking to prioritize speed can upgrade to the S version, which will offer a more powerful pair of MAN V12-1800 engines for a top speed of 23 knots. An optional hybrid system with zero-emission electric mode can provide silent cruising at up to 8 knots.
“The idea was to create the most attractive proposal for a superyacht of just under 50 meters.” says Sergei Dobroserdov, Dynamiq founder and CEO. “There are so many 50-meter yachts below 500GT available, but they all look very similar with pretty much the same functionality. We asked ourselves ‘What can we bring to the market that makes more sense for our clients?’ The answer was to focus on modern owners’ priorities and leave the less important things aside. So, we decided to design the GTT 160 with the accent on the key factors: well-being, efficiency and price. In terms of naval architecture, we selected a slender hull with a long waterline that is much more efficient and comfortable than a short, wide one. So rather than maximizing the interior volume we analyzed everything an owner wants or needs in terms of general arrangement and features. We then arrived at a concept that provides the motion comfort of a 55-meter yacht with a conventional flared bow.
To complete the package, the GTT 160 houses a 21-foot tender in the forward garage and is equipped with a touch-and-go helipad platform with a maximum take-off weight 3,000 kg.
