Exclusive: Ken Freivokh New Designs "Fortissimo" & "Ghost "

Two new designs to come from the renowned designer Ken Freivokh and his team are the 145m Fortissimo and the slightly smaller 144m Ghost. These yacht designs are at the top level of innovative and modern design and are sure to be a major hit in the Superyacht world.

Fortissimo 145m

Fortissimo is a 145m gas turbine yacht designed specially for Fincantieri Yachts in Italy. She is a superyacht designed with total flexibility in mind. The design concept also acknowledges the tremendous power of the turbine installation, and integrates the turbine as an integral part of the total design. She has a generous amount of space and living area for such a sleek yacht, Whilst the owners can enjoy getting to their destination at a top speed in excess of 35kts. Quite an astonishing speed for a yacht of this size.

The yacht features 7 deck which include a sun deck, a high visibility and operational deck, a private owners deck, an entertainment deck with terraces both forward and aft, a guest deck with further terracing, a crew deck and a utility deck. The aft decks are particularly interesting with a see through swimming pool and jacuzzi with the glass walls forming an open feature within the main deck gym and bar.

Fortissimo will be able to accommodate up to 16 guests in 8 guest suites and will have a crew of 48 to accommodate their needs.

Ghost 144m

Ghost is a 144m sleek innovative creation and Ken's approach may be seen as stimulating unpredictability with controlled chaos yet it is totally functional. The Ghost concept similar to that of Fortissimo is one of total flexibility, where a rigid spaceframe system takes care of the torsional rigidity, and allows for large span openings. These large openings can accommodate the likes of a 50ft sportfisher tender, which on most yachts could only be a run-alongside tender or deck tender.

Ghost also boasts a number of unique features such as underwater viewing, sliding helipad platforms, opening skylights, a glass sided swimming pool, a gym, a massive atrium around one of the main structures with balconies and flying bridges linking the various spaces.

These two yachts have been designed to fit in with the forward moving world of today and will stay modern and new throughout their life on the worlds Oceans.
