EXCLUSIVE / Amer 94’ No vibration, double speed.

What does a couple of empty glasses of water have to do with the new Amer 94’?

amer glass[dropcap]F[/dropcap]ind it out in this incredible short video recorded on board this first unit of this new model Amer 94’. The Liguria-based shipyard, part of the Permare Group, has recently launched this new model and is ready for the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival 2015 (8-13 Sept.), where the yacht will be presented as World Premiere.

About its revolutionary attitude and innovative spirit we have already talked in our previous articles (See: Amer Yachts 94 new phaseIPS system or conventional propellers? Amer Yachts unvealed the new 94’!), and there is no doubt that the new Amer 94’ is one of the most awaited new models at the next Boat Shows 2015/2016.

“SAVE THE SEA”, that’s the name of this first Amer ’94, will be displayed in world preview at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival, at the Genoa Boat Show in October and, in 3d model and in video, at the FLIBS and at the Qatar International Boat Show in November.

It is [highlight color=”yellow”]the first superyacht to adopt the Volvo Penta IPS engines[/highlight], already in use on small crafts, representing a revolution in the market, as they reduce consumptions and emissions, ensuring at the same time a great maneuverability.

Amer Yachts, now known and appreciated worldwide especially for the reason that their products allow to sail either at a planing and at a displacement speed (with one only engine in function), with a considerable reduction in fuel consumptions, has always been interested in [highlight color=”yellow”]innovative “green” products [/highlight]since the very beginning of their commercialization, and has waited for the right time by studying and designing a specific hull for the IPS 1200. In fact, in the past, it wasn’t possible to install this type of engines, as the power delivered was not yet enough to be adopted on large hulls; recently, Volvo Penta has introduced onto the market new models that can be suitable for Superyachts and the shipyard didn’t miss this unique opportunity.

The innovative characteristics which represent the strength of the new 94’ concern the environmental impact of the boat and the [highlight color=”yellow”]consumption reduction[/highlight]. These new engines will allow to cut down fuel expenditure of 30%.

The new Amer 94’ shall be equipped with no.3 IPS engines, adopting a brand new engine room arrangement, which has never been used within this range’s production segment. It shall become the only Made in Italy hull of these dimensions and fittings to take part to International Boat Shows in 2015/2016 and it is going to represent a new frontier in comparison to the past.

As to vibrations, the Shipyard chose the innovative gyro stabilizer technology, positioning the Seakeeper 16 model aboard the new Amer 94’: thanks to the limited weight of the boat, the roll reduction that will be achieved will guarantee a high level of onboard habitability and comfort. The Seakeeper 16 is designed to achieve 70 to 90% roll reduction on boats up to 70 tons, vessels 65-80′. Two units can be fitted for larger boats. The Seakeeper 16 requires only modest electrical power, has no outside appendages, and can be installed off centerline, if necessary. Its computerized control and vacuum technology make it the first truly practical, and only modern, anti-roll gyro.

As shows this video recorded during first sea trials, the yacht comfortably cruises at the speed of 24kn (max speed of 30kn) without vibrations. The glasses positioned on the table in the stern area don’t seem to feel any effect from the speed, remaining stable and allowing guests to enjoy their lunch or dinner even in navigation!

Amer ‘94 will be available for sea trials during the next Cannes Yachting Festival.
