Heesen Superyacht AnnG Review

Elevating an Era: The Art Deco Modern Yacht Ann G

With a graceful wave of her sweeping superstructure, Heesen Yachts’ 50-meter motor yacht Ann G presents an exciting profile on the water, turning heads and earning nods of approval as she makes her way out to sea. Chic and sleek, Ann G sports a powerful profile designed by Clifford Denn, with naval architecture by Heesen Yachts. A defining upper deck bulwark angle points the way to the style of the yacht, creating her unique bridge wing arrow. The three-year build process was guided by the experienced management hand of Arcon Yachts throughout design and construction, with the build completed by Heeson.

Claasen Superyacht Atlante Review

At First Glance

Unveiled at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show after her summer delivery, Atlante found approval from the yachting community. Slipping through the water on a slender, sloop-rigged profile with low deckhouse echoing the era of great sailing ships, she appears but a sliver of a yacht. On closer inspection, her understated presence flashes refined elements like an engraved stern, sparkling brightwork, deeply varnished West Indies Mahogany joinery, and teak-laid decking, establishing that she is truly art under sail.

CRN Superyacht Atlante Review

Purposed Innovation: The Tender Solution

Two standout design solutions on board address the largest footprints of the least rewarding spaces for this owner on board the 5600 sq. ft. interior of Atlante: the tender garage and the formal dining area. The design team created ingenious layouts and mechanisms for both that also satisfied the owner’s request to keep required functional equipment visibly minimized.

Southern Wind Superyacht Atlante

Continuing the trend toward flush decks and low profile deckhouses, Southern Wind’s Seawave takes the design a step further, even setting the on deck refrigeration units cleverly into the coamings. An elegant profile from Farr Yacht Design, Seawave’s 32-meter/104-foot also has a few tricks up her sleeve, making her perfect for the owner’s use as well as racing, and even for chartering.

Jaguar C-X75 Review

James Bond movies feature some of the world’s most innovative automobiles. Bond drove a luxurious Bentley Mark IV in “From Russia With Love”; a top-of-the-line Aston Martin DB5 in “Goldfinger” and “Thunderball”; and the unrivaled Lotus Espirit in “The Spy Who Loved Me.” The villains, however, rarely get chances to drive such iconic vehicles. Other than the beautiful Rolls-Royce Phantom III owned by Auric Goldfinger, none of them stand out as particularly inventive or glamorous.

That changed in 2015 when Mr. Hinx, the gigantic assassin featured in “Spectre,” took to the streets of Rome in a Jaguar C-X75.
