Three decks, hull and superstructure all in composites for an overall length of nearly 45 metres, and a top speed of 29 knots. This performance is the most outstanding feature for a superyacht which rates as one of the largest planing ones ever built to date in the motor yacht fly bridge category.

The yard’s naval architects signed this project work as well as that of the company’s flag ships built in GRP for the Tecnomar brand. This planing motor yacht’s hull boasts a 19° angle at the stern and is powered by two hefty 3,650 HP MTU engines linked to two V-drives which means the shafts are set at just 9° to serve the performing five bladed Nibral propellers the ship is endowed with. All of this added to carefully planned weight saving and distribution of the loads leads to a top speed of 29 knots and a cruising one of 25 performances which are normally found on considerably smaller sporty boats but are typical of this brand born in the mid eighties from the ashes of the Bruno Benetti yard which used to build offshore sports boats.

This 45 metre can deliver good performance in terms of fuel consumption too since cruising in economy mode at 13 knots which can be easily adopted at night, the yard’s declared consumption is of 230 l/h which makes this ship more competitive in times such as these where one tries to avoid waste. Tecnomar is no longer just known for fast sporty boats since Giovanni Costantino has been at the helm. In 2009 Tecnomar became part of a comprehensive offer made up by the newly formed Admiral Tecnomar Group which is dedicated to building a range of luxury yachts for everyone’s tastes.

From planing to displacing hulls, from construction in composites to metal works, from the truly sporty looks of the two decker range to the expedition type yacht to sailing ones etc.. each vessel shares the same common denominator in as much as each one can be totally personalised and tailor made to one’s taste thus becoming highly exclusive.

Emblematically speaking taking into account the performance, and the more technical aspects which underscore the ships produced by this brand name, Tecnomar with “Ouranos” sets a definite high quality standard which its vessels can proudly carry and also in terms of detailed interior styling, and the enhanced comfort one clearly perceives on board.

In spite of its three decks plus flying bridge the external layout seems well proportioned also thanks to the colour schemes deployed where Carinthia blue for the hull takes the lion’s share while the superstructure is all white and the interiors have been carefully detailed by the in house Centro Stile which has also worked to optimize spaces at best while trying to propose an elegant and sought after appeal in line with the owner’s requests.

A bright modern look has been obtained inside thanks to a meticulous study in lighting design where artificial light characterises certain areas and blends with natural light from ample glazed panels interacting with the furniture, and embellishing motifs so typical of Italian craftsmanship. Walnut and limestone make up the flooring while ceiling panels are in white leather, and bulkheads and furniture are also in walnut.

The lower deck houses guests’ night quarters which are made up of five cabins: A larger VIP one in the bow, two doubles and two twin cabins aft of the first, each cabin has its own spacious dedicated bathroom.

Like for the upper deck this area too is accessed by a winding circular stairway in natural limestone and wood railing topped in steel where particular lighting arrangements enhance the softness already provided by the fabrics applied to the circular part of the stairway walls.

The main deck hosts four large living rooms containing light coloured melange material, linen poufs in addition to furniture containing twin pop up television sets as well as a formal dining area with a table in steel and bronze glazed cut glass seating twelve.

To port behind a door there’s a large galley and stairs leading to the crew’s quarters which are made up of a saloon, and four double cabins all with bathroom. On the starboard side of the main deck there’s a passage way leading to the owner’s private quarters which in addition to a suite, sport a gym, an office, a large bathroom and a completely separate dressing room.

In the upper deck there’s a full beam saloon and bar area forward of which there’s the captain’s cabin next to the command controls station.

The open air zones confer a sense of conviviality mixed with relaxation while the sun deck hosts a hydro massage tub which is built into the sun bathing area and served by a teak lined bar counter. The stern sun bathing area is lined in teak, with a “new” look to it and can be used with or without traditional sun pads. The external areas of the other two upper decks are furnished with tables, divans, poufs, and large LED pop up television sets.

Cleats and mooring bitts are made specially to recall the Tecnomar logo.
