The Marino 52 Luxury At High Seas

Step into the Alfra Vico Luxury Motor Yacht Marino 52, and you’re sure to be floored by its stunningly simple design and interiors. Boasting of modern gadgetry to make sure you kiss high-speeds effortlessly, the yacht is envisioned as ‘motion art’ of the highest echelon. From the cleats to the projectile anchor, to the convertible exterior lounge-sofas/daybeds, to the fully computer-controlled helm station, the Marino 52 screams extravagance! We also discovered that Alfra Vico opted to invent and purpose-build new patent-pending electronic control systems, mechanizations, cleats, and other essential functional elements.

Awesomely stunning visuals as well! Check out the full details here.

    So. If your lady friend is handing out cocktails on the rear deck, and you take off in a flurry, pulling about 1.2G’s, she falls over the back where there is no railing and subsequently is eaten by sharks. 10 points.

    Its nice, but can you explain why there is no back, its a safety prerequisite in boat design 101?

      the problem isnt that it is open at the back.. (boats of this size simply dont have that level of acceleration from standing still.. and alot of new boats have open sterns now).. the problem is that it is a direct copy of a wallypower… http://blog.sellsiusrealestate.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/wally.jpg

      • Pj. That is the norm in design, somebody comes out with something new and every other designer uses it for inspiration. Think of design as playing in a jazz combo where somebody has a new riff and everybody else builds off it.

        • IDiot says:

          Zippy, there’s inspiration and there’s “inspiration”

          PJ’s right

          At the very least he designers should have dubbed it a Wallypower line extension.

          • Opps on the spell check, hazard of not wearing your reading glasses when typing. He should have given Wally some credit but lets face it hardly any designer does pay homage to who they are “knocking off”. The market he is selling to will know, most yacht designers will know, and as I said so much of design is rehashing of prior work that it is the norm. What a designer says about himself in his puff pieces is up to him/her in the end and his/her market will be the judge.

        • pj says:

          It might be your norm, but there is a difference between Inspiration and Imitation, especially when the designer refers to himself as “innovation guru” on his website

          Thanks anyway for the patronizing schooling.

            zippy; “lets face it hardly any designer does pay homage to who they are “knocking off”. Speak for yourself zippy. judging by the responses to this post, I think most designers here have more pride. “Inspiration” means that there is an intellectual step in between the original and your interpretation of it. ” knocking off” means there is no intellectual step or development”. As far as I am concerned, Wally has a monopoly on that very recognizable concept. I personally wouldn’t go there unless I could trump them.. I certainly wouldn’t go there just to cannibalize their work which is what this guy did. He took the skylight strip on the fore-deck of the Wally Sail and the rest from the Wally Power and then gave it a faux Italian name… he didn’t bring anything new to the table. As an example, there is a boat called Differ where the designers approached this typology without compromising themselves and they ended up with a lovely result/conscience… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FvMQp6pJIg

        Speaking from experience PJ, (I pretty much spent my child hood on Yachts this size).. they definitely do have enough grunt to throw you over, stumble at least. Duly noted the wallypower has a rear wall/seat to prevent this, oh and hey the wallypower is in production.

        • pj says:

          yes, I was on it recently… it is berthed here in Monaco. they have an open stern, but employ a “safe zone” which is basically empty deck space incase you stumble. It is a bit like having passengers in a car… if you have passengers, it isnt polite to give full throttle when they dont expect it

  • Chief says:

    It does scream extravagance! It also screams WALLYPOWER 118…

  • Ram says:

    This reminds me of the mini Japanese subs from WWII

  • says says:

    wallypower anyone? inspiration is one thing but biting is another.

  • Filippo says:

    ..it’s a shameless copy of the wallypower.. i agree..

  • SkyWay says:

    It’s been said many times and here’s one for good measure : Wally

  • gabrielp says:

    more like wally 64. the only reason to buy one of these would be lower price.

  • Pj, most designers don’t look back far enough, the folded paper form in car’s and boats has been around sense the 70’s and 80’s so Wally just re warmed a old theme, and that’s ok its the norm in design.

  • maritimewatch says:

    Is this the same dynamic design as the one in popular science for stealth boats?

  • felix says:

    thi is a similar ship of the island movie

  • Vandelay says:

    I suppose “designing” this took a lot of time.
    Why not use some of that time to at least try to come up with something original?

    It must be really comfortable to watch your favorite program from those bar stools or while you are washing your hands. You know, like people usually do.

  • Noah says:

    it is using the design lines of cars it is messing alot of the yacht character it is realy creative but if i would buy a one i wont buy this.

  • stephen russell says:

    Yeah, where is the rear stern back?
    Great when at anchor or moored BUT not when moving at sea unless U place netting X stern for guests.
    Otherwise Id sail this.
    Love to charter.

    I purchased this watch, despite the negative reviews of damage. I’ve been wearing mine for almost 6 months now, and not even a scratch. The band is holding up perfectly. The super-thin case and ultra lightweight make me forget I have it on.

  • Your style is so unique in comparison to other people I have read stuff from.

    I appreciate you for posting when you have
    the opportunity, Guess I’ll just bookmark this web site.

  • What’s up, every time i used to check webpage posts
    here in the early hours in the daylight, because i love to learn more and
    more.

  • What i do not understood is in reality how you are no longer really much more well-appreciated than you may
    be now. You are so intelligent. You already know
    thus significantly in terms of this subject, produced me in my
    opinion consider it from numerous varied angles. Its like men and women don’t
    seem to be fascinated until it’s something to do with Lady gaga!
    Your personal stuffs nice. All the time care for it
    up!

    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks oof hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

  • Finley says:

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was good. I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going
    to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

  • Checking on the streets for the good company developing
    good games and Android apps won’t be that useful, so have to
    Google it extensively. Android game development is used to develop out of
    the box games which would thrill all its players. In general if it
    doesn’t have four or five stars then it might not be worth bothering with and if it
    has less than three you should probably avoid it.

  • I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme.
