We are proud to have participated in the creation of this spectacular 69 meter (227 ft) long motoryacht, which is the ninth project of the Staluppi’s with Mulder Design. Spectre, with her 5 decks and impressive volume of 1430 GT, is the result of close cooperation between builder Benetti and their interior design team, Giorgio Cassetta for exterior styling, Mulder Design’s naval architecture and the inspiring involvement of the owners.
🏆🏆🏆 In 2019 M/Y Spectre has won four prestigious awards:
Mulder Design is responsible for the Naval Architecture of Spectre
- Hull design
- Propulsion design
- Structural design
- Ride control by Naiad Dynamics
The yacht has what we call a high-speed cruising hull, to boast speed at extra efficiency. They deliver maximum navigation efficiency AND 30% more than a traditional displacement hull.
She’s reportedly capable of 21 knots, compared to the 14- to 17-knot top speeds of most similar-size steel displacement yacht. “This lets you enhance the experience onboard because the trip is shorter to the next destination,” Frank Mulder explains. He gives the example of traveling from Capri to Porto Cervo in Sardinia. With a traditional full-displacement megayacht, he says, it’s about an eight-hour trip. But, with Spectre, an early-morning departure should put her in port by lunchtime. In addition, she still delivers long range, an expected 6,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Further noteworthy, the superyacht Spectre has Naiad Dynamics’ Ride Control technology. It reduces roll and pitch via multiple fins and blades. (For comparison, roll stabilization typically just employs fins.) Mulder Design and Naiad tailored the arrangement for a 40- to 45-percent reduction in vertical motion.
What makes this yacht different than all others in this range?
1 Her High Speed Cruising Hull will not only be approximately 30% faster than “normal” displacement yachts with similar power, but will also reduce fuel consumption at long range speed and has proven to be extremely comfortable.
2 The ground breaking use of Ride Control, which is a combination of roll reduction and pitch reduction, will greatly improve comfort when cruising at 20 knots
