Travel the World in This $20 Million Bentley-Furnished Explorer Yacht

Monaco-based superyacht builder Dynamiq reckons that with its just-announced Global 330, it has come up with the perfect formula for a go-anywhere expedition yacht.

Take size. At 33 metres, it’s just the right length for shimmying into those hard-to-reach bays and inlets where superyachts fear to tread. With a draft of 1.75 metres, it won’t crunch the coral in the Caribbean either.

And with twin MAN V8 diesel engines, the aluminium-hulled Global can punch through the swell at 16 knots, but throttle back to 10 and it’ll sip fuel at the rate of just 60 litres an hour providing a range of more than 6437 kilometres.

“We’ve been looking at the explorer market for quite a while and decided to come into the game with something completely different for our adventurous clients,” says Dynamiq CEO Sergei Dobroserdov. “Instead of slow, steel-hulled explorers with the typical commercial styling, we drew on our forward-thinking approach to create a fast and modern series of vessels.”

Once again, Dynamiq teamed up with innovative Dutch naval architect Van Oossanen to create the Global 330’s wide-beamed, fast displacement hull featuring its patented Hull Vane foil. This underwater wing, mounted at the stern behind the props, dampens roll, reduces drag and improves fuel efficiency.

The head-turning, decidedly un-explorer-yacht styling is the work of Dynamiq’s in-house studio Dobroserdov Design. It features a towering bow with a high deck, and huge saloon and master-suite windows carried well forward.

The extra-wide 8.5 metre beam provides impressive interior volumes, with five guest staterooms, including a cavernous main-deck master with not one, but two fold-out balconies.

Dynamiq’s design for the Global 330 uses furniture from the stunning Bentley Home collection featuring lots of diamond quilting, just like the materials used in Bentley’s line-up of luxury cars and SUVs.

In keeping with the Global 330’s expedition-yacht image, the garage is stocked with an array of adventure-seeking toys. Everything from an ROV (remote-operated vehicle) capable of operating down to 97 metres, to full diving gear, fishing gear and even a DJI drone to video the action.

Base price for Dynamiq’s first-ever explorer is €12.7 million, or roughly $20.6 million with a build time, at the company’s Massa yard in Tuscany, of two years. Dynamiq also has plans to offer the Global as a 30-metre or a 40-metre.
