20 September 2017
Dubbed “the modern gentleman’s superyacht”, the first Porsche inspired GTT 115 has been launched at Dynmiq’s shipyard at Viareggio in Tuscany.
This exclusive superyacht, which is just one of seven being built, has a price tag of €13.950.000.
It will have its international debut at the Monaco Yacht Show, which starts on 27 September.
The superyacht is a collaboration between the Monaco-based shipyard, Dynamiq and Studio F. A. Porsche.
Speaking at the launch, the CEO of Dynamiq, Sergei Dobroserdov, said the GTT 115 “is undoubtedly the most advanced superyacht at the Monaco Yacht Show, with her round-bilge hull form, podded propulsion, Hull Vane and exclusively developed stabilization system with 4 fins and interceptors”.
He said the launch was the culmination of a long process of design and development to introduce a new kind of superyacht to the market.

“The modern gentleman’s superyacht, the GTT 115 draws on the latest technology to combine comfortable high-speed cruising over 21 knots with efficient fuel consumption and long range of more than 3,400 nautical miles,” stated Dobroserdov.
“Her bespoke hybrid system with 3 variable-speed generators are tributes to our strong belief in the sustainable future of yachting. At just 35 metres overall, the yacht offers the versatile spaces and feeling of a much larger vessel,” he continued.
“On top of all this, GTT 115 is finished to the highest quality and looks super cool in her fashionable Rhodium Grey metallic paint. We decided to limit production to 7 units to make the GTT 115 a true collector’s item,” added the Dynamic CEO.
The GTT 115 will be moored at berth H01 at the Monaco Yacht Show, directly in front of the prestigious Monaco Yacht Club, where Dynamiq has its exclusive showroom.
The CEO of Studio F. A. Porsche, Roland Heiler, believes the new GTT 115 will appeal to yacht owners.
“Taking the spirit of high-performance sportscar styling to the high seas, the Dynamiq GTT 115 is designed to appeal to car lovers and forward-thinking yacht owners who appreciate the advantages of speed, style and our philosophy of intelligent performance,” he said.

This isn’t the first foray into the world of luxury yachts for Porsche.
Previously, the sports car manufacturer has collaborated with Royal Falcon Fleet on the RFF135 power catamaran and the Fearless 28 luxury speedboat.
Now, Porsche is working in cooperation with the Monaco-based shipyard, Dynamiq to develop a new range of superyachts.
The first out of Studio F.A Porsche is the 35-metre GTT 115 Hybrid.
It is currently being built at Dynamiq’s shipyard in Viareggio, Italy, and will be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show this September.
A limited edition of seven GTT 115 yachts will be built, with a starting price of €13.950.000.
Powered by twin 1213kW MAN engines paired with the latest Fortjes 5000 pods, the superyacht will be able to exceed 21-knots. It has a range of 3,400 nautical miles, making it ideal for transatlantic crossings and high speed cruising.
The GTT 115 will also have a short delivery time of just 15 months from date of order.
All the exterior syling has been done by Studio F.A, which is responsible for creating Porsche Design sunglasses, watches and other luxury items.
Inside, both decks have seven-foot-high ceilings.
Spacious cabins are lined with carbon fibre and marble detailing throughout, with furniture and throw-pillows finished with the same material as the seats in a Porsche 911R.
The GTT 115 can cater for up six passengers and six crew.
The new series of Dynamic superyachts with Porsche DNA will blend racing-inspired performance with a fast-displacement, lightweight aluminium hull.
Each of these Grand Turismo Transatlantic superyachts is easily customisable via Dynamiq’s online configurator, similar to the option available for those buying the latest Porsche supercars.
Work is also currently underway on developing at GTT 100 and 85.
