Abeking & Rasmussen's new launch C2 in St Barths on her maiden cruise
C2
Abeking and Rasmussen hull 6479

Yacht name: C II (C2)
Length: 257 ft • 79 m
Year: 2008
Builder: Abeking & Rasmussen • # 6479
Design: Reymond Langton

Photo: Robert Paylor • St Barths • March 2009
Photo: Klaus Gaeth • Lemwerder • December 2008

Following on from Andrei Melnichenko's "A" launched earlier this year, might CII herald a rush by prospective yacht owners to snap up the remaining 24 letters of the alphabet?

Klaus has just sent in shots of Abeking & Rasmussen's latest launch getting her finishing touches in Lemwerder.

Although a sister to Eminence, the exterior styling seems less curvy, with the characteristic Reymond Langton "darts" or "arrowheads" almost absent.

There is an interesting transparent enclosure on the sun deck in front of the mast - possibly a lift (elevator)?

Update: April 2009 - Superb new photo of C2 taken during the St Barths season, by Bob.

Many yachts changed their hull colours from white to blue this year. But 007, the (prototype?) Vespucci 555 from CITM (thx Vittorio) is keeping one step ahead with a continually changing colour scheme: blue, purple and pink. Nine further yachts are planned.

You've seen this trick before with Roberto Cavalli's RC… The paint effect is ChromaFlair from JDSU and is the same colour shift effect used in many applications - from cars to furnishings (thx Darren). No pigment is used, the effect is achieved through refraction.

Guilty

Guilty yacht
Guilty Faliro marina

Yacht name: Guilty
Length: 114 ft • 35 m
Year: 2008
Builder: Rizzardi
Exterior art: Jeff Koons
Design: Ivana Porfiri
Owner: Dakis Joannou

Photos, as always, exclusive to monacoeye !!

Photos: A • Rhodes • 1 July 2008
Photo: Aeolos • Faliro marina • 13 July 2008

The guest list for the christening of recently launched Guilty reads like a Who's Who of the contemporary art world. Nicholas Serota of the Tate, Jeffrey Deitch, Larry Gagosian, Marian Goodman, Maurizio Cattelan, Ashley Bickerton … the list goes on, and on.

Of course, Sarah Morris' text painting "Guilty" hangs on the wall of one bedroom - bought after the yacht was named. Owner and major art collector Dakis Joannou simply had to have it!

The exterior design was created by international art star Jeff Koons, famous for his basketball in perspex case, three-storey high "Puppy" made of flowers, and the "Made in Heaven" erotic series of photographs with Italian ex-wife and porn-star-member-of-parliament La Cicciolina.

Although the blown up print and poster colours will be familiar to art fans from Roy Liechtenstein's signature Ben-Day Dots style, Jeff Koons actually based this design on the Dazzle Painting, or Razzle Dazzle as the Americans called it, WW1 camouflage pattern invented by British marine artist and naval officer Norman Wilkinson - see comments below for more on this extraordinary style.

Ivana Porfiri created the unusual angular architecture. Guilty is likely to appear in next month's Italian Vogue.

Yacht name: Maìn

Photos: Marco Nava • 2 June 2008 • Viareggio

5 June 2008: Marco just sent in these photos of Armani's new yacht Maìn, outside the Codecasa Tre yard in Viareggio. I think the diagonal struts - which have not been universally appreciated by yachtspotters ! - work well with the venetian blinds to create a smart business-like exterior. Or does it look like a chic patrol boat? What do you think?

April 2008: Jos emailed us to report that Giorgio Armani has recently been delivered his new 65m Codecasa, called Maìn - "Maria" in the Piacentino dialect - named after his mother. Although hard to discern on the photos of the launch published a few days ago in Il Tirreno, the hull colour is a dark battle green. Armani, himself, designed the interior, in a light minimalist style with dark accents.

Giorgio Armani's former yacht Mariù, also named after his mother, has now been sold. As he is a frequent visitor to Monaco, we can hope that Mr Armani will have planned the short hop up the coast from Viareggio in the coming days to show off his new yacht ….

Oct 2008: A nice shot of A in Malta from Thomas and an earlier one from when she visited Monaco. July 2008: A has arrived in Palma de Mallorca, more excellent Nokia N95 shots ! June 2008: The Final name of the yacht formerly known as Sigma and SF99 is the unGoogleable "A". A's owner is Andrei Melnichenko, (see comments below, January 2008)



First Sea Trials: Excellent photos from Klaus Gaeth in Kiel of SF99's first sea trials. And if you're wondering what makes Philippe Starck tick, here he is on the big design questions - life, the universe, and toilet brushes ….



March 2008: New photos from Boschuda ! Another veil is lifted from SF99 as the plastic protective covering is peeled from the windows on the lower deck and the scaffolding is removed from around the funnels, masts and Sea-Tel domes. The anchor enclosure also seems to have a new cover. Hydraulic hatches can be seen at the back. The name SF99 is clearly written on the stern - visible in Armin's shot from yesterday evening - possibly a temporary name…



February 2008: More new photos, taken by Armin, showing off the razor sharp bowGreat new photos of Project Sigma - taken by Jörg - of the extraordinary new Philippe Starck designed megayacht from ThyssenKrupp, conceived in 2003.



Once again, Philippe Starck has made a radical departure, literally turning yacht design on its head, with a superstructure reminiscent of an upturned keel. He has also borrowed heavily from modern warship lines. Like it or loathe it, this will most certainly be the yacht of 2008.

Robert Frank of the Wall Street Journal has already dubbed this the ugliest yacht in the world ! Although many of his readers appear to disagree…

Pantsbloke's (!) comment below that the owner is Andrei Melnichenko has now been confirmed.

At 118 m, Sigma is the world's 9th largest yacht - 3rd largest if you don't count state-owned yachts and charter cruisers. Though she will drop a place when the yet unseen Project May from Peterswerft is launched later this year.
