    The next generation from Sensation...

    As one of the most innovative superyacht designers and builders in the world today, Sensation New Zealand is revolutionizing the way the industry works. In doing so, it is also rapidly redefining the expectations of the market.

    Over the past decade Sensation has virtually rewritten the way superyachts are built, pushing the boundaries of thinking and technology to create new standards of quality and performance while achieving unprecedented efficiencies in time and cost.

    Sensation pioneered resin-infusion technology to build the world's first composite vessel over 150', dramatically reducing the amount of time and materials needed in the process. Sensation built "Maria Cha III", the 148' composite superketch that smashed the trans Atlantic sailing record in 1998 (and won the coveted "International Super Yacht Design Award" and "Most Innovative Sailing Yacht Award" in the same year).

    Subsequently, Sensation Yachts has developed a portfolio of semi-custom composite superyachts based on the same basic set of tooling. This modular approach has been conceived to encompass varying styles and sizes of models from 28m-52m (95ft-170ft).

    They are marketed as the 'Volare', 'Allegro' and 'Heritage' series.

    Flexibility is the essence of the portfolio. For example, wherever possible mold tools are used to produce common or similar parts on different models. The same goes for the hull. One mold can produce the smallest or largest hulls. The maximum beam with our tooling is 9.3m (30.6ft). What decides the size is how much of the tooling is laminated, i.e. how thick, high and far back it is taken. Similarly sections of bulwark, transom and so on will fit all models.

    We believe that this is as close to a series built machine as one can get at this end of the market, which will make for competitive pricing and shorter build times. The intention is to swiftly increase production so that one composite motoryacht completes every six months. The first vessel of the series will be launched in first quarter 2006. Further Launch dates will occur throughout remaining quarters of 2006

    Here are the new models...

    This is the "Volare"...

    This 95' composite twin screw, recreational vessel features a shallow draft with 35knot capability. It features an owner’s stateroom with spa bath ensuite and lounge together with three guest cabins each with ensuite. Entertaining areas include an aft salon with bar area, casual lounge and separate dining for up to ten guests.

    Outside, guests can enjoy the aft deck and swim platform area and the top flybridge which includes bar and hot grill facilities.

    This is the "Allegro"...

    The 130ft design features similar lines to the 115ft and features spa pool, bar and sun pad facilities with exceptional exterior styling.

    The master stateroom, with his and her closets, bathroom and office features forward of the raised pilothouse. Further aft is the main foyer leading to the dining room for 10 with a separated main salon. Two double, and two twin guest cabins are situated on the lower deck. Crew accommodation on this deck includes two twin crew cabins and Captain’s cabin all with ensuite. Wave runners are situated in the lazarette with the main tender stowed aft on the flybridge.

    This is the "Heritage"...

    At 170', she stretches the new mold to the max. This will be the first of the new line to debut.
