Explosions in the yacht club of the occupied Nova Kakhovka, a new unusual superyacht concept is presented and farewell to the founder of Baltic Yachts – yachting news!
The occupiers took a fancy to the yacht club of New Kakhovka… and regretted it
Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine continues. Interesting news came from temporarily occupied Novaya Kakhovka. There, the Russian invaders took a fancy to the local yacht club Maxmarine.
According to local Telegram channels, “something” exploded near the yacht club and destroyed the premises occupied by the invaders. Alas, there were some casualties among the yachts - some of them suffered from fire as a result of a blow to the place of deployment of Russian troops.
At the moment, there is no official information about the arrivals and destruction of the invaders. We are waiting for the details!
Founder of Baltic Yachts dies
As it became known recently, on Saturday, January 28, 2023, the founder of Baltic Yachts, Jan-Erik "Janne" Niefelt, died.
Baltic Yachts said in a statement: “Baltic Yachts has lost a man who made a huge contribution to what Baltic Yachts is today. This is a great loss for the company and for all of us personally - the loss of a person, a friend whom we valued very highly and who was a huge support for us throughout our years of work in the yachting industry.
Niefelt began working on yachts from an early age, already maintaining his father's small shipbuilding workshop with relative success. In addition to being trained in practical skills, Niefelt also studied aspects of boat building.
Jan-Erik first became one of the first employees of Nautor Swan. There he worked as a shipbuilder. After a while, he founded his own shipyard Baltic Yacht. Until his retirement, Jan-Erik took an active part in the management and development of the company.
The concept of an “invisible” superyacht on a 3D printer
Yacht designer Joseph Forakis recently presented the concept of a superyacht that should be printed on a 3D printer! According to Forakis, this will not only speed up the production process, but also improve the environmental friendliness of the yacht.
The yacht is to be 88 meters long with a low profile hull and fancy finishes. From the side, the yacht will look as if invisible due to the mirrored hull. The superyacht was named Pegasus.
Other features include powerful solar panels that will produce clean energy. This energy will then be used to convert sea water into hydrogen. After that, hydrogen will be converted into electricity using fuel cells and placed in lithium-ion batteries. This is such an interesting cycle of energy.
As far as 3D printing is concerned, according to Forakis, individual parts of the yacht will be 3D printed and then assembled on a single production line. This way, less time, resources and less waste will be spent. It is very interesting whether the concept will be brought to life?
