HOW BIG YACHT WITHOUT CREW

The "crew" issue is a topic that interests many owners when designing their yacht. One wonders if a yacht without a crew is possible. However, to understand if this request is feasible, it is important to clarify these aspects with the Shipyard:

  • What will be one of your yachts? How long is everything going to use it?
  • Is the owner able to maneuver the yacht in complete autonomy?
  • How big is your boat? Will I be able to manage it autonomously safely?

For clarification, it is essential to consider that the crew can be divided between technical staff (captain, mechanical engineer, etc.) and service staff (steward, chef, hostess, etc.) - usually employed in larger yachts.

What will be the use of your yacht? How long are you going to use it per year?

At the time of design, it is already clear to its owner what the use of his boat will be.

There are those owners who love to steer their boat, others who only seek the pleasure of cruising. There are those who prefer to have the boat all to themselves, and those who prefer to have a crew at their service. There are also those who love to use the boat all year round and those who can use it only a few months a year.

The intended use of your boat also conditions the choices related to the crew.

A boat that will be used as a Charter Yacht will have to provide not only the technical personnel required by law but also the service personnel.

If instead, its use is personal, it will be possible to reserve less space for the crew members, as the guests will carry out the duties on board.

PLEASE NOTE: The rules on the number and type of personnel on board are dictated and imposed by the Navigation Class and the flag, as well as by the size of the boat. It will, therefore, be important to evaluate all these aspects well with the construction site during the design phase.

Is the owner able to maneuver the yacht in complete autonomy?

In order to navigate and maneuver the boat, you need a boat license and all the certifications suitable for cruising. It is also necessary to have a minimum of technical notions to be put into practice in case of a failure while in the middle of the sea. There are true sea enthusiasts who have all the knowledge necessary to steer their yacht in complete safety, but also those who see time on board as vacation and who prefer to have someone do things for them.

Boat size

The bigger the yacht, the more the presence on board of technical figures with specific skills will be necessary. In addition, a large yacht also requires greater care also in terms of maintenance.

 Shipyard Solutions

Division of flows as an optimal solution

In larger boats - where a minimum of the crew is needed - the Privacy issue is the crucial aspect.

The study of guest-crew flows, if done carefully, guarantees extreme discretion. A clever division of the spaces ensures that the work areas do not interfere with the spaces dedicated to guests.

When technology can help

During the design phase, the Shipyard can meet with ad hoc solutions.

A similar request was received by the owner of a 26-meter trawler. This yacht boasts important dimensions, and in nominal conditions, it is managed by a crew made up of 3 or 4 people on average. The request of this owner was to be able to manage the boat independently without the constant help of a professional crew.

Solutions have therefore been adopted that have made it possible to drive the boat in a total autonomy: thus reducing management costs and increasing privacy on board. Four remote command posts have been inserted, two forward and two aft of the Main Deck to facilitate mooring maneuvers, in addition to the main command post on the upper deck. Each station has been equipped with all the controls and displays necessary to have full control of the boat.

These solutions come in handy while sailing, but a Navetta 26 needs a fixed presence on board even when it is moored in the Port. A remote monitoring system has been installed onboard to manage current onboard, space heating/cooling, etc.

Filippetti Sport Yacht 55

THE PERFORMANCE OF A SPORTS YACHT WITH IPS ENGINES

Ever since Volvo Penta IPS made its appearance on the market in 2005, the way of thinking about propulsion in boating has been turned upside.

The IPS propulsion system designed by Volvo Penta for sports yacht offers a very innovative cruising experience. Each IPS installation is a complete and perfectly matched propulsion package that delivers not only optimum power and maneuverability but also greater onboard comfort in all conditions.

The main advantages of IPS propulsion in sports boats

Briefly, we can summarize the advantages of this propulsion system:

  • 40% longer cruising range
  • 20% higher top speed
  • 30% reduced fuel consumption
  • 30% less CO2 emissions
  • 50% lower perceived noise
  • More onboard space

(Source Volvo Penta Official Web Site)

For more techniques on IPS propulsion read our article.

IPS propulsion on board the Filippetti Yacht Sport 55

The Sport 55 owner can choose between two engines configuration: one highly performing with MAN and Arneson couplings, and the other with Volvo Penta IPS propulsion. The Filippetti Yacht Shipyard has launched both of the proposed configurations.

Looking at data, the result in terms of performance is winning in both cases.

The configuration with Arneson Surface Drives (with 1,200 horsepower engines each) is certainly the emblem of the Shipyard's sporting and performing vocation, aiming for 47 top speed knots and 40 cruising knots.

Likewise, the sport yacht with IPS has exceeded initial expectations. The official sea trials recorded a cruising speed of 32 knots and a maximum of 38 knots.

So what is the option with the highest performance?

There is no better configuration than another. There are only owners with different preferences.

Surely if what you are looking for speed, the choice of surface propellers always remains the most appropriate.

Said that, the possibility to choose the IPS propulsion guarantees to leave unchanged important characteristics such as acceleration, insertion, and development in turn.

At the same time, this complete system ensures navigation in restricted waters and very simple mooring maneuvers within the reach of even the less experienced.

Fly Bridge versus Sport Yacht

SPORT VERSUS FLYBRIDGE YACHTS

Another topic that is the subject of debate in the nautical world is the difference between the various two styles of boats: sport yachts and flybridge.
FILIPPETTI SPORT YACHT VS FILIPPETTI FLYBRIDGE

A sport yacht, or also defined as open, is a boat whose main characteristics are:

Luxury Yacht Open S75
Filippetti S75 - SPORT YACHT
  • High performance;
  • Planing hull;
  • Single deck over the hull;
  • Sporty and captivating look.

Sports yachts are designed to reach high speeds. Thanks to the different motorization and propulsion configurations, they guarantee high performance in terms of maximum speed and navigation.

flybridge yacht 76 piedi
Filippetti F76 - FLYBRIDGE SERIES

A flybridge boat is characterized by having an area in the "roof" of the boat - called fly - where there are a driving position and a sunbathing area. This area is usually covered by a hardtop.

Even these boats are usually equipped with a planing hull.

 

In addition, state-of-the-art and latest generation navigation instruments are installed in both sport boats and flybridge.

However, unlike sports yachts, flybridge yachts are by definition more comfortable - even if they are still very performing.

 

Sport Bridge Luxury Yacht
Filippetti FLYBRIDGE 93 - FLYBRIDGE SERIES

It then happens that these two styles merge, especially when the sport boats become large enough to be able to place a driving position and a sunbathing area in the fly. This type of luxury yacht is called Filippetti Sport Bridge.

The Filippetti Yacht range

The Filippetti Yacht range consists of 4 series of yachts, including the SPORT YACHTS SERIES and the FLYBRIDGE YACHTS SERIES.

The Sport Yachts Series yachts (55 to 75 feet) are equipped with the most advanced technologies. Every open boat in this sports series is designed for an owner who loves high performance, speed, and modern design.

The Flybridge Yachts Series brings together three essential elements of luxury yachting, achieving the perfect balance of design, comfort, and performance.
In addition, thanks to a studied design on board and multiple sharing spaces, the boats in this series are ideal for combining travel and fun.

This article will try to give an answer to a common question: What is an Explorer Yacht?
