41-Meter Golden-Hulled Superyacht Stands Out From the Crowd

The superyacht Stefania uses a patented hull technology to make it more fuel efficient.

Dynamiq’s new 41-meter Stefania is a glamorous, golden-hulled superyacht with a good amount of substance to back up its lavish style.

As a press release from Dynamiq reveals, 24 months of engineering and construction on the superyacht took place at the company's shipyard in Massa, Tuscany. Ultimately, this led to impressive hull and yacht innovations, which enable passengers to glide along the water aboard a state-of-the-art vessel.

The superyacht uses a fast displacement hull designed by Dutch naval architects Van Oossanen, which gives the vessel low resistance as it slides through the water.

While a superyacht is never going to be the sustainable way to get around, Dynamiq says Stefania "is safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly in accordance with the strictest RINA Commercial Class standards" as the reduced resistance from the fast displacement hull equates to lower fuel consumption, even when operating at high speeds.

Other new designs such as Sinot's world-first hydrogen-powered superyacht concept and Kurt Strand's solar sail superyacht aim to disrupt the yachting industry and, in the process, make it more sustainable.

5,000-mile superyacht range at 50 liters per hour

Stefania uses twin MAN V12 1650 engines, allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 21 knots, with a range of 5000 miles at 10 knots, and an impressive fuel consumption rate of 50 liters per hour.

The superyacht also features a special patented "Hull Vane," which comes in the form of a fixed foil located under the stern of the yacht. The reduced pitch and hull resistance that comes from that innovation allows the Stefania to have smaller engines, allowing the operators to use less fuel.

The superyacht's full-aluminum metallic gold-colored exterior gives it an extravagant look similar to Dynamiq's Gran Turismo Transatlantic concept.

Of course, the superyacht also comes with luxurious amenities for guests, including a 10-person aft pool on the main deck with a capacity of 4,500 liters and a real fireplace in the main salon, which sounds a little dangerous on a boat.

Covid-19 has, of course, had a great impact on the leisure boating industry — superyacht charter companies, for example, had to lay off up to 60% of their staff.

Still, as we slowly make our way towards the end of the pandemic, many of the world's wealthiest are looking to get out to sea — or to space — in style. If anyone's looking to stand out amongst the world's wealthiest, a golden-hulled superyacht definitely isn't that far behind an "anthropomorphic" rocket ship when it comes to grabbing people's attention.
