New launches

Project Necto, now known as M/Y Amore Mio, launched by Dutch builder Heesen. The 45m yacht has an aluminium hull and tops out at 30 knots. It was designed by Omega Architects and has an interior by Cristiano Gatto.

Amore Mio also has a man-overboard reaction system, developed by her build captain. In case of man overboard, multiple buttons have been placed around the vessel that, when pressed, will instantly open concealed hatches dropping high-visibility inflatable life rings in the water to both mark the position of the MOB and also serve as a flotation aid. Simultaneously, alarms on the bridge and in the crew areas are sounded, and the location is recorded in the vessel’s chart plotter program. The MOB Rapid Reaction System could be a critical time saver in the rescue chain of events, particularly important for high-speed yachts running at night.

The yacht is expected to be delivered in late January, and will carry 10 guests in five staterooms.
