than done. “We discovered that the solution wasn’t just about engines or fuel or exhaust tubes or catalysts or scrubbers alone but about all of them working in tandem and seamlessly,” says Caminada. Individual OEMs could not introduce one component without knowing what other equipment would be in the system, nor could they design parts without knowing space constraints. “We had to get our arms around them and lead them to a solution together.” While container ships and 100-metre-plus yachts may have room for huge exhaust catchment devices called scrubbers that capture and incinerate NOx and...

I asked if I could use certain stones and you will see they agreed” The master bath is a study in white Thassos marble, with beautiful aquamarine and light Azul Cielo blue stone adding contrast.

“I begin designs with the lower deck, that is the start, the heart of the boat,” says Pascale Reymond, who was responsible for Volpini 2’s interior. A double guest cabin, above, and the twin, below, from the lower deck show her use of leather – from Foglizzo, Sinn Living and Studioart – to cover headboards, bedside tables and all kinds of interior surfaces get a handle on how the hybrid electrical system, a first for Amels, and the emissions reduction package were working.
