A.R.T. The Innovative breakthrough
ECO-CONSCIOUS for the future of the yachting industry
INSPIRED BY THE ARABIC SUPERYACHT RETROFITTING

Put forward by the UN’s International Maritime Organisation, Tier III of the IMO NOx regulations aims to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions (NOx) by around 70% compared with the current Tier II standards. The regulations apply to vessels in North America, the US Caribbean, the Baltic Sea, the North Sea, and all future NOx Emission Control Areas from Jan 2021: any boat that might pass through must comply, which basically means all must adopt these regulations.


Our YACHTDNA.ART is a Yachting Clearinghouse offering a wide range of services including charter, sales, and technical services.
The premium Technical Station ART is inspired by its Arab clientele and the acronym of ARABIYA RESTORATION TIME (Arabian Yachts Restoration Time) implementing in Superyacht retrofitting in Greece. Devoted to its multicultural clientele it develops an R&D segment to seek sustainable solutions feasibly applicable on board.

What exactly is the Premium Technical Station ART? The Technical Station to offer principally two services:
1. Convert the preowned yachts to ecological ones (no soot, no pollution to the marine environment) in collaboration with a Dutch engineering team.  2. Convert the preowned Superyachts to be compliant with the IMO TIER III with intervention in the engine room (valid as of 1.1.2021 and compulsory in USA and Baltic Sea).

We not only offer services for Superyacht Owners, but we are also helping the private and the public sector when it comes to the job market for a Green Economy. Beyond the commercial angle, we should appreciate the connection of the Arab nations to the Superyachting industry as is today. The likes of the El Mahrousa Egyptian ownership yacht of 1865, at 146m, Al-Said at 155m, Issham Al Baher at 116m, and many more were the pioneers of the superyacht industry who played a prominent role in establishing the building ground for the Giga yacht size.


The Arabic influence does not stop there as they have been the leading legislators for large yachts that accommodate for the comfort of families and the professional setting of VIPs, as well the luxury for the royal families. They also helped shape the impressive assortment of entertainment venues as well as reliable functionality that follows the PYC compliance Superyachts of today correspondent of the way that, Andreas Liveras, the father of megayachts decided to build Annaliese and Alysia in Millennium, chartered principally by Arabs. It is Arabs who first invested in Retrofitting while now taking one extra step, changes are related to the implementation of energy-efficient technologies, propulsion options, and smart technologies.

SUPERYACHT INTELLIGENCE DATA
what is the ARAB OWNERSHIP

This is corroborating evidence from the industry’s data, and the superyacht intelligence agencies, since Arabic Ownership of superyachts is in the higher tenth percentile nationalities, with the majority of the megayachts to belong to Arabs, 80% of them to Gulf residents identifying UAE in the top ten of superyacht owners’ origin.

Moreover. Arabs are also the leading habitué in the demand for services as well as products provided by yacht renovation, refurbishment, and annual maintenance manufacturers in East Mediterranean at least.

As a matter of fact, it is a known tradition for Arab superyacht owners to do a scintillating makeover which helps the mobilization of multiple professionals, businesses, and industries including shipyards, naval architects, interior designers, fabric traders, and machinery workshops. Arab Gulf superyacht owners are also responsible for triggering multiple sectors of the global economy including Europe and Asia.  

The luxury of superyachts necessitates innovation in the field of technology, environmental engineering, waste management, and economic growth. 

Likewise, thanks to the concentration of luxury superyacht Ownership amongst Arabic nations and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region together with the associated market potential are the fundamental factors in our decision to establish our Technical Station ART inspired and named after the motto Arabiya Restoration Time.

THE RATIONALE FOR OUR BUSINESS

The Premium Technical Station ART is developing an R&D segment seeking for feasible solutions and contemporary technology to adopt in Retrofitting. This is  about waste management appliances, sophisticated antifouling paints marine environment-friendly,  hull studies, engineering amendments, crew education on eco-friendly products. 

We study various plans in order to sustain the quality of the environment including air, land, and water; more notably, our plans for sophisticated waste management units to turn waste in a cap of processed water, PET plastic dissolution, composters, lithium batteries, solar panels, as well as hybrid electric systems that reduce carbon emissions in the air and reduce the carbon footprint. This will help the yachting industry comply with green regulations. Renewable energy and resource efficiency are likely to be the new normal in the next few years. We have already seen heavy taxation and regulation for vehicles and modes of transportation that have been damaged, thus it is best to adjust to these changes.  

Nonetheless, our Premium Technical Station offers low-cost Superyacht Technical Management with unbias superintendence, contributing to its overall excellent condition at an economical plan.

featured concept
FATA MORGANA BY GEORGE LUCIAN

Monaco-based designer and artist George Lucian is famous for a great series of extraordinary superyacht concepts. The yachting world had been amazed by the 70-meter explorer superyacht Fata Morgana that we adore to present. In times of environmental concern in the industry and when over ten major superyacht brands have signed up to carbon footprint reduction, the concept has been purposefully designed to raise awareness about the irreversible changes that take place in the arctic areas.

The 70-meter explorer yacht has been designed to be chartered in the arctic areas, including the Northwest passage, which due to the climate changes and the melting of the icecaps is much easier to navigate through. Fata Morgana will come with an ice-classed hull, to be able to navigate in the arctic waters and aims to perfectly fit with the arctic landscape, with her bow resembling a rock formation partially covered in snow, and the stern having a glass structure corresponding with icebergs.

From afar Fata Morgana may look like an island, just as her name suggests, referring to a complex form of superior mirage, described in the sailor’s old legends. The glass structure of the yacht accommodates the main saloon and the VIP suites offering unobstructed views of the sky and of the surroundings. The rest of the yacht bears superyacht features, providing accommodation for up to 12 guests and 18 crew members.

The yacht would come fitted with an outdoor swimming pool, a telescope/sky observatory just above the bridge deck, and a helipad. In addition, Fata Morgana shall be equipped with devices that would constantly monitor the ocean’s temperature and composition and transmit them to the concerned international organizations. Techno wise, the superyacht would boast a range of 7,000 nautical miles and would be also able to navigate kite-assisted for smooth long-distance travels. Naturally, the project is designed for low emissions and waste.
