Earlier today, Feadship launched one of its largest superyacht projects to date when the 93-metre motor yacht 814 took to the water at its Royal van Lent facility in Kaag, the Netherlands. Project 814 was commissioned by an experienced owner who drafted Michael Leach Design and Reymond Langton to design the exterior and interior of the vessel respectively. De Voogt Naval Architects are behind the vessel’s naval architecture. SuperYacht Times was at the scene in Kaag today where the team took these images.
Dutch yard Heesen Yachts has delivered its 49.4 metre yacht Omaha following successful sea trials in the North Sea.
Previously known as Project Maia, Omaha reached a top speed of 16 knots during her “intensive” sea trials which took place in favourable conditions.
The yard also reported that the 499GT steel and aluminium yacht was “extremely manoeuvrable” and credited this to her large rudders and power steering unit.
The yacht will now leave the Dutch yard and embark on her maiden voyage in the Mediterranean.
Initially built on speculation and sold in December 2017 by Heesen USA and Ocean Independence, this yacht features exterior design by Clifford Denn and an interior décor of light bleached oak and stained walnut by Reymond Langton Design.
The two studios previously collaborated on the yard’s 2015 launch Ann G, and Omaha shares a couple of her key features, such as the foredeck tender locker. Meanwhile, the flowing lines, aft fashion plates and navigation lights were inspired by classic cars.
Accommodation is for up to ten guests spread across five lavish staterooms, including a main deck master cabin and four lower deck guest cabins. Key details include inboard mirrors to reflect the light flooding in through the windows, as well as subtle recessed lighting and integrated artwork panels.
Jason Macaree from Reymond Langton explained, “We were aiming for a liveable and homely feel with an emphasis on light. We are confident that this will be a very special yacht.”
“We tried to keep a similar DNA to Ann G,” Denn added. “The superstructure design is inspired by hammerhead sharks and the raised bulwarks will hide the tenders from view, creating a clean profile.’
Moving the tenders to the bow means more space in the transom for a luxurious superyacht beach club, complete with bar and sauna. Heesen added that the 68 square metre sundeck has been fitted with a superyacht spa pool and a cocktail bar.
Power comes from a pair of 1,341hp MTU 8V4000 M63 diesel engines for a top speed of 15 knots and a transatlantic cruising range of 3,800 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Omaha is the first yacht in the new Heesen 50 Steel collection, replacing the outgoing 47 Steel, which spawned 13 hulls in total.
Omaha’s sister ship Project Triton is currently under construction at the shipyard and is set for a February 2020 delivery.
Amels delivers first 188 Hybrid Superyacht Volpini 2
Dutch builder Amels has successfully delivered its latest superyacht, Volpini 2 – its first hybrid-powered vessel. The 57.7-metre Limited Edition yacht is the first delivered from the Amels 188 design, marking the world’s first Tier III compliant new build yacht with Amels’ own hybrid switchboard and waste heat recovery systems.
Following her delivery, Volpini 2 is currently on her way to the Mediterranean. Amels first introduced its Limited Edition 188 design at the Monaco Yacht show in 2015. The eighth edition in this successful range, not only is Volpini 2 longer than her sisters from the Amels 180 series, she is also larger in size, featuring an internal volume of 970 GT.
The Dutch builder teamed up with designer Tim Heywood once more to create the exterior design of the project, while her owners chose to work with Reymond Langton for her custom interiors. Able to accommodate up to 12 guests, Volpini 2 features an 80-square-metre master suite, with a folding balcony in addition to six suites, including a VIP suite on the bridge deck. In addition, her crew quarters allow for a crew of up to 13. Other stand out features include a 30-square-metre beach club at the stern, next to a wellness centre and gym.
“This design is an important milestone for Amels,” said Hans Konings, Amels Design Manager. “We’re very proud of the technology innovations that have gone into her design, the culmination of our Amels 188 Research and Development programme, which we started in 2014.”
The International Maritime Organization’s Tier III emissions regulations currently require new motor yachts over 500 GT with a global cruising area and a keel laid after 1 January 2016 to reduce the harmful NOX emissions in their engine exhaust gases by approximately 70 percent.
“With our Amels Limited Editions approach to yacht building, we need to look further ahead and anticipate the demands of our future clients,” added Konings. “That’s why as far as we understand, we are the world’s first new build yard to reach this milestone. What began as a challenge for our industry just a few years ago is now becoming standard practice – to the benefit of our environment.”
At Reymond Langton Design we are proud to be the sponsor of the Sea Owl for the Minerva’s owls of Bath 2018.
Our owl was designed and created by the talented artist Annabel Menheneott. Annabel is a contemporary artist based in Bath who produces dramatic seascapes captured in acrylics, reflecting the shifting coastal environment, using bold, strong and purposeful brush strokes, palette knives and large brushes allow Annabel the freedom to create exciting painterly marks. Annabel has exhibited nationally and more recently at the Royal Academy as part of the Summer Exhibition preview events in aid of Marie Curie where she will return this July.
You can find our owl located outside our offices in Bath along North Parade Buildings.
Spotted: where to find the World’s coolest superyachts
98 metre Abeking & Rasmussen yacht Aviva was spotted making her way up the Thames in London on July 2, 2018. The yacht, which was last seen in New York just a month ago, passed some of the British capital’s famous riverside landmarks before finally anchoring in front of Tower Bridge.
Delivered in 2017, Aviva was designed by Reymond Langton Design and offers accommodation for up to 16 guests. Her roomy 17.2 metre beam makes room for a number of impressive lifestyle features, including a full-size padel court, which won her a Judges’ Special Award at the World Superyacht Awards 2018.
Award winning Aviva collects second award this year
On Saturday 19th May 2018 Reymond Langton were proud to win a Neptune for our latest design Aviva during The World Superyacht Awards in Florence. Aviva won the award for Judges Special Award. Please see the article below for words from judges and Boat International.
Judges’ Special Award: Aviva
There was little doubt among the judges that Aviva is not only extremely well built, but a very special yacht. From first sight, her flowing modern lines and attractive hull colour draws one’s attention but the thrill continues for those privileged to see her interior, which is perfectly customised to the needs of an owner who lives aboard full time. Flowing lines also dominate an agreeable general arrangement plan, but the most unexpected feature is the padel court (one third the size of an LTA court) that sits at the heart of her lower deck, a quite unique facility that is used every day by the owner, guests or crew. So many judges were enthusiastic about this yacht – a close runner-up in this class – that the award of a Neptune in the form of a Judges’ Special Award was proposed and readily accepted by the whole jury.
6 amazing women proving yachting is no longer a man’s world
Not too many years ago if someone was asked to name a female yacht designer, it would have been tricky to think of even one. Now times are changing and it isn’t just in design. Women have been making their mark across the industry and they’re making a big impact. In honour of International Women’s Day, we have been catching up with a few of the fabulous women in the business to find out how they got into yachting, why they are so passionate about it and whether they feel happiest on land or on the water.
Pascale Reymond: Managing Director of Reymond Langton Design
What is it about the yachting industry you are passionate about?
People working in this industry are very passionate about what they do and this is very contagious.
What is the favourite design you’ve completed?
It would have to be 91m Lady Lara exterior styling and Mogambo for the interior.
What are three of your most proud achievements?
• Setting up Reymond Langton Design
• Winning Serene, a 134m yacht contract without having any yachts completed at the time to show
• 75% of our workforce are women and I am very proud to promote all these super talented persons in the yachting industry
Tell us something about you that might surprise us?
I am a qualified archaeologist and have done many excavations in Italy, France, and the most disturbing one was in the heart of a 12th-century church where I was surrounded by many ancient bodies.
When are you most content – on the water or on land?
On my paddle board, at my beach hut in the south of France which is literally 2 metres away from the most wonderful turquoise water.
Continuing to attract an impressive selection of superyachts that make their way to northern European countries ahead of the winter season, the city of Bordeaux recently hosted the 95.2-metre Lürssen motor yacht Kismet along the banks of the Garonne river. Kismet, launched in 2014 as project Global, features a glistening golden exterior design by Espen Øino International as well as an interior from the drawing boards of Reymond Langton Design. Not visible on this picture is the yacht’s characteristic striking jaguar figurehead on the bow. Since having departed Bordeaux, Kismet is now heading to London as her next destination.
The first hull in the 57 metre AMELS Limited Editions 188 series has been sold with Ben Young at Superyacht Management representing the buyer. Currently being completed by the Dutch yard, this displacement yacht features exterior styling by Tim Heywood and an interior by the Reymond Langton design studio. This is the eighth design in this highly successful range, which has seen more than 20 hulls over 52 metres since the first Limited Editions 171 Deniki hit the water in 2007.

Ten years ago Reymond Langton Design celebrated the launch of the previous Aviva which featured a number of innovative design features, such as the vertical bow and contrasting grey coloured hull.
Now the same team has collaborated to create a new Aviva that improves and adds to that original, forward thinking concept in every way – once again the biggest launch from Abeking & Rasmussen, featuring a fresh and dynamic contemporary exterior design, unique, highly personalised layout for the interior and a cutting edge technical platform. See the video below of Aviva leaving Aberking & Rasmussen in Bremen and off on her first journey.

Exclusive: the 98m Aviva in action for first time
Following her launch at the Abeking & Rasmussen shipyard in January this year, the 98-metre superyacht Aviva was put to the test yesterday out on the North Sea. The SYT media team caught her in action for the first time as she sliced through the waters off the German coast during sea trials as captured in these exclusive aerial photos by photographer Tom van Oossanen.
Aviva’s design is the work of design studio Reymond Langton, who also designed her owner’s smaller, 68-metre, yacht by the same name that was launched back in 2007. The team worked with Toby Silverton on the exterior of the yacht.
Her gigantic interior spaces are described by the yard as ‘mystical’. The layout was designed to incorporate a full-sized paddle tennis court that measures an impressive 20 metres x 10 metres x 6 metres.
The effects of her efficient hull shape, said to reduce drag by up to 20%, is clearly visible in these images as she powered through the calm waters off Wilhelmshaven driven by her hybrid propulsion system that allows for a top speed of 11 knots without the use of her main engines.
With outfitting on board virtually complete, Aviva is expected to be handed over to her owner upon successful completion of her sea trials.

Abeking & Rasmussen preparing to launch 98m flagship superyacht Aviva
Article from Superyacht Times:
A new dawn of the Aviva age is about to begin as German shipyard Abeking & Rasmussen prepares for the launch of its new flagship. The 98-metre Aviva, as displayed by her active AIS signal, is waiting patiently on the banks of the river Weser outside Bremen where she is expected to be launched soon. SYT photographer Tom van Oossanen is at the shipyard where he took the following photos.
The yacht was commissioned by experienced yacht owner, Mr. Joe Lewis, who currently owns the 2007-built Abeking & Rasmussen yacht by the same name. Lewis uses his vessel as a near permanent residence throughout most of the year. In a recent interview with Bond Technology management, Lewis said: “Aviva is more than an office; it is also my home for much of the year. So for me, it is relaxing working from home, wherever Aviva may be in the world.”
The Reymond Langton-designed yacht is the largest completed project to date for both the British design studio and Abeking & Rasmussen. Stay tuned as we bring you the latest developments from Bremen about this exciting project.
Reymond Langton Design is excited to see the unveiling of our latest 98m project. Marking another successful collaboration with Abeking & Rasmussen, with the interior and exterior developed in close co-operation with a very experienced repeat Client who had a clear vision for the new vessel, resulting in a highly personal layout, with some unique features never before seen on board a superyacht.
The exterior has been carefully considered, taking into account the overall length, specific demands of the naval architecture and sea-going performance of the yacht and accommodating larger than usual interior heights, the concept has taken cues from automotive design to create a powerful, modern profile, with taut, chamfered elements of the superstructure creating a strong contrast of light and shade that lead the eye and give the superstructure a sleek, purposeful appearance, enhanced by the metallic silver paintwork and dark contrasting details.

When seen at night Superyacht Lady Lara will leave you stunned
Below is a lovely article written by: Rich Lazzara for Ocean of News on Wednesday 25th November 2015
Lighting of a yacht at night is truly an art form. We used to work endlessly to make sure our yachts looked great at night. The photo below from SuperYachtTimes.com shows you the absolutely best lit yacht ever…period! Lady Lara designed by Reymond Langton Design is stunning, day or night, but my goodness the lighting on this yacht takes it to a whole new level.
The all-new 91m Superyacht Lady Lara (formerly Project Orchid) by Lürssen was captured by Tom van Oossanen, while anchored in Amsterdam. This is the second port of call for the breath-taking Superyacht Lady Lara, following her maiden voyage to Norway. From Amsterdam, Lady Lara is expected to cross the Atlantic to enjoy the sunny weather in Florida, the Bahamas and The Eastern Caribbean islands in the winter season.
Lürssen has delivered the Lady Lara after she successfully completed sea trials in the summer. The fantastic lighting consultants for Lady Lara are Lighting Design International.

Lürssen delivers 91m SuperYacht Lady Lara
Lürssen has delivered 91 metre superyacht Lady Lara, previously known as Project Orchid, after she successfully completed sea trials in July. Reymond Langton Design have been responsible for the interior and exterior design.
Please see below Piano Films video that has captures the sweeping curves and elegant proportions that give the vessel a feminine beauty. However moving closer allows the strong, masculine details to emerge; sharp lines define the strong, sculptural surfaces that have been carefully styled to create a sharp contrast of highlight and shadow that lends the superstructure a unique form that subtly changes in different lights as the sun moves across the sky.

Project Orchid has successfully concluded her sea trials in the Baltic Sea under perfect weather conditions. Her final delivery is planned for late summer 2015. Reymond Langton Design have been responsible for the interior and exterior design of Project Orchid.
The Exterior of Project Orchid is designed around creating a harmonious balance.
From a distance, the sweeping curves and elegant proportions give the vessel a feminine beauty, whilst moving closer allows the strong, masculine details to emerge; sharp lines define the strong, sculptural surfaces that have been carefully styled to create a sharp contrast of highlight and shadow that lends the superstructure a unique form that subtly changes in different lights as the sun moves across the sky.
The balance and proportion of the yacht’s profile also allows for generous exterior decks with a range of options for guests to enjoy, from sun-drenched, open entertainment areas to more sheltered, intimate, formal spaces.
