Polboat Yachting Festival 2023

polboat yacht festival

On July 27-30, we invite you to the next edition of the Polboat Yachting Festival, where we will represent the shipyards of which we are the exclusive distributor in Poland and Montenegro: Frauscher Boats, Excess Catamarans, Wauquiez and Tofinou.

At the show, we will have the pleasure to present the Frauscher 858 Fantom Air motor boat, which will have its Polish premiere during this year’s event in Gdynia. This boat is from the range of Frauscher Boats, a family-owned Austrian yacht brand, where the tradition of building boats has been passed down from generation to generation for almost a hundred years. Innovation and cutting-edge design are deeply rooted in Frauscher Boats’ DNA. It was the Austrian shipyard, to be one of the first in history, to build boats with electric drive, which were allowed to cruise on the lake where the very founder of the Frauscher brand set up his boatbuilding facilities. Currently, the shipyard offers a wide range of motor day-cruisers and electric models that can be an excellent choice for inland navigation in places where diesel-powered boats are impermissible.

The 858 Fantom AIR is an extraordinary day cruiser with a unique design and aesthetics. The boat is equipped with a 320 hp engine, the power of which can be optionally increased to 430 hp. AIR is the open-deck version of the popular 858 Fantom. It offers two lounge areas, two aft sunbathing mattresses attached to the bathing platform and comfortable seating with a cocktail table that can be converted into a large sun lounger.

We are at your disposal throughout the fair on the Frauscher Air 858 at stand A31 and stand 9.

See you at the Polboat Yachting Festival in Gdynia!

Seadeck

Matteo Thun and Antonio Rodriguez had never designed a yacht before Seadeck 6. Azimut Yachts, which was founded by Paolo Vitelli in 1969 and sells to the world’s rich and famous, was looking for a design conscious model that would bring man as close to nature as possible when they turned to the duo.

“To be sustainable there has to be a less extravagant luxury, different and less ostentatious so we chose this interiors look that is far from what you normally see in the yacht world,” Rodriguez says.

The studio worked with yacht designer Alberto Mancini, who came up with an innovative concept in which, right from the very first sketches, the exterior communicates naturally with the interior. This includes the new Fun Island feature, a suspended deck that brings everyone as close to the water as possible and allows them to reconnect with nature.

“We wanted to create a boat that puts maximum emphasis on the concept of openness and transparency, and that also represented a radical change in terms of the relationship with nature. With the introduction of the Fun Island, Seadeck is actually a floating island where owners can get away from their daily routine and live in total contact with the sea,” Mancini says. He is regarded as one of the industry’s top freelance designers and has worked with Baglietto, Fairline Yachts, Magnum Marine, Tankoa, Otam and Revolver.

More than half of Azimut’s fleet is now made up of low-emission yachts that reduce CO2 emissions by between 20 and 30 percent. Seadeck 6 integrates an innovative system that allows both zero-emissions at anchor and cruising with the generator off, further reducing on-board consumption. This system, called Mild Hybrid Zero Emission Hotel Mode, is based on a 42-kWh lithium battery pack and an alternator connected to one of the three engines. Overall the vessel reduces CO2 emissions by 40 percent over a year of average use, both when cruising and at anchor, compared to a traditional flybridge boat of similar dimensions.

The company says it has invested 20 years of research and development in sustainable innovation and is working toward meeting the goals set by the International Maritime Organization for the overall industry to reduce CO2 emissions by 40 percent by 2030.

He unveiled the model during Milan Design Week, providing one of its highlights. The vessel was hoisted into Milan’s Bagni Misteriosi pool. An immersive installation titled “Mooring by the Moon” was curated by AMDL Circle, the multidisciplinary studio of well-known Italian designer  Michele De Lucchi.  The display unfolded in a journey through four acts focused on sustainable innovation at the Bagni Misteriosi pool with a choreographed performance culminating in a setting inflatable moon attached to a dancer in mid-air.

The design and nautical worlds have come together like never before over the last few years. In 2019, design legend  Patricia Urquiola  incorporated her signature flair into the Sanlorenzo SD96, starting with the modernist metallic winding staircase and finishings like a biscuit-patterned parquet floor and sleek modular furnishings.

In 2023, design duo Roberto Palomba and Ludovica Serafini made their yacht sector debut with a collaboration with Permare, an Italian shipyard founded in Sanremo in 1973. Together they unveiled the latest Amer Yacht F100 Glass Cabin, which, much to the design studio’s surprise, won them the World Yacht Trophies 2023 Semi-Custom award at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

RH , formerly Restoration Hardware, unveiled RH Three in 2022, an expedition yacht available for charter in the Mediterranean during the summer and the Bahamas in the winter. Enhanced with a homey feel, RH Three’s many design elements include cashmere bedding and an indoor dining space punctuated with deck chairs by Paola Lenti and Vincent Van Duysen.

Today, Italian shipyards account for 50 percent of all world orders of super yachts, says the Marine Industry Association.

The yachting sector employs 28,660 people in Italy, up 8.8 percent year-over-year. The weight of the yachting industry’s contribution to Italy’s gross domestic product rose 2.9 percent in 2021 to 3.23 percent in 2022, and has been on a steady uptick since 2013, rising sharply in the last two years, according to the association.

Breaking news, pfizer sued by kansas for allegedly hiding covid vaccine risks, making false claims.

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Kansas on Monday sued Pfizer, accusing the company of misleading the public about its COVID-19 vaccine by hiding risks while making false claims about its effectiveness.

In  a lawsuit  filed in the District Court of Thomas County, the state said the New York-based drugmaker’s alleged false statements violated the Kansas Consumer Protection Act. It is seeking unspecified money damages.

“Pfizer made multiple misleading statements to deceive the public about its vaccine at a time when Americans needed the truth,” Kansas Attorney General Kris Kobach, a Republican, said in a statement.

The lawsuit claims that, beginning shortly after the vaccine’s rollout in early 2021, Pfizer concealed evidence that the shot was linked to pregnancy complications, including miscarriage, as well as inflammation in and around the heart, known as myocarditis and pericarditis.

“The representations made by Pfizer about its COVID-19 vaccine have been accurate and science-based,” Pfizer said in a statement, adding that it believed the lawsuit had no merit.

The Food and Drug Administration in June 2021 added a warning about myocarditis and pericarditis to the vaccine’s label. The side effects are rare and  most often occur  in adolescent boys and young men.

A  2023 review  of 21 studies by the US National Institutes of Health concluded that COVID vaccines were not linked to miscarriage.

Kansas also said Pfizer falsely claimed that its vaccine, which was developed with German partner BioNTech for the original strain of the virus, retained a high effectiveness against mutated variants, and that it would prevent not only illness but transmission.

Pfizer's COVID vaccine.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a similar lawsuit against Pfizer last year, which remains pending. Pfizer has also called that case meritless.

Kobach said on Monday that other states had been collaborating with Kansas in its investigation and are expected to file lawsuits as well.

BioNTech is not a defendant in the case.

Urban Draws and Sandy Feet: 5 Cities With Great Beaches

Already been to Miami, Honolulu and Sydney? These other coastal destinations are vibrant on land and on the water, reliably offering visitors great beaches and urban adventures.

An aerial view of sunbathers on a sandy beach.

By Lauren Sloss

While secluded, remote coastal destinations have enduring appeal, a great beach city provides travelers with top-notch hotels, restaurants and cultural attractions, as well as the requisite sandy feet, endless waves and ocean sunsets of a great beach vacation.

We’ve gone farther afield from the Miamis and Honolulus of the world to offer these five beach-city suggestions. As always, research site-specific travel tips and observe local customs on appropriate beachwear and seaside behavior.

Istanbul has enough sights, sounds and history to fill multiple itineraries — ancient palaces and modern art, no-frills yet delicious street food and high-end restaurants, a raucous nightlife and the ubiquitous calls to prayer ringing from the city’s mosques. But it also has the Princes’ Islands , roughly an hour boat ride away (via public ferries, water buses or private boats). The cluster of nine islands, four of which are inhabited, have hiking trails, car-free streets and, of course, beaches, with sandy coves spilling out into the warm waters of the Sea of Marmara. Public beaches and beach clubs can be found on the three largest islands, Heybeliada, Büyükada and Burgazada. Aim to visit on a weekday to avoid crowds.

Upon your return, stroll along the banks of the Bosporus or dive into the bustle of the Beyoğlu district. You can find a glass of Turkish wine at Solera winery, or head to Çukur Meyhane , a low-key tavern beloved by locals and visitors alike, for a pour or three of anise-flavored raki.

Marseille, France’s second largest city, has gotten something of a reputation revamp in recent years, with an influx of creative professionals breathing new life into the port city — as well as the preparations needed to host a spate of sailing events for this summer’s Olympic Games. But Marseille’s heady mix of French, Italian and North and West African cultures has long made it a vibrant destination. The city buzzes with great food (beyond its famous bouillabaisse) and vibrant art found in galleries and on the street covering the walls of the hip Cours Julien neighborhood. And if you head down to the water’s edge, you’ll find local residents of all ages perched on craggy limestone rocks, sharing wine and plunging into the clear, aquamarine waters of the Mediterranean.

Sandy beaches can be found along the Corniche de President John F. Kennedy in the city’s 7th Arrondissement, too, including family-friendly Plage du Prophete and, closer to the city center, Plage des Catalans . All of are easily reached by bus, bike or on foot. Wherever you choose to dip, you’ll be spitting distance from ample waterfront bars and cafes perfect for a post-swim apero.

South Korea

From world-famous barbecue to K-pop to an exchange rate that’s quite favorable to the U.S. dollar, reasons to visit Korea are so plentiful these days that the country’s excellent beaches might be skipped. That would be a mistake, particularly in Busan. Korea’s second largest city has a waterfront scene fit to rival Miami Beach, with striking mountainscapes, Buddhist temples and hiking trails, and a thriving restaurant and nightlife scene. Haeundae Beach is Busan’s best known, thanks to a nearly mile-long stretch of golden sand and blue water surrounded by attractions, including the Sealife Busan Aquarium , tented restaurants serving seafood and hiker-friendly Dongbaek Park. Other beaches worth exploring include Gwangalli Beach, which on Saturday nights, is home to drone shows with changing themes and musical accompaniments. More waterfront fun can be found at the Bay 101 Yacht Club , where you’ll find multiple eateries, shops and yacht tours of the Busan waterfront.

For Midwestern beachgoers, the shores of Lake Michigan are well-trod, thanks to stunning county and state parks, Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore and Chicago’s undeniably epic urban beaches. But Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s largest city, shouldn’t be overlooked by any coast-loving visitors to the area, thanks to the city’s 1,400 acres of waterfront beaches and parkland. Some of those include Bradford Beach , which has lifeguards on duty plus volleyball courts, a frozen custard stand and a tiki bar; South Shore Beach , which boasts city views and, in true Wisconsin fashion, a beer garden; and Tietjen Beach at Doctor’s Park , a semi-secluded haven with excellent bird watching. Of course, Milwaukee’s extensive brewery scene , art museum and baseball tradition makes the city well-worth visiting, as does its packed summer festival schedule , which includes Summerfest . The nine-day festival, held over three weekends in June and July, boasts a 600-artist lineup with acts ranging from Motley Crue and Tyler Childers to Lil Uzi Vert and SZA.

San Sebastián

San Sebastián, or Donostia in the local Basque language, has long been a destination for travelers seeking to explore Basque culture, feast on culinary treasures and enjoy the striking coastal location hugging the Bay of Biscay. The city’s beaches, backed by lush green mountains, are well worth your attention, too, particularly in the summer months when the cooling Atlantic waters are as refreshing as they are necessary. La Concha, with its curved shape and golden sand, has been famous since its time as a resort destination in the 18th century. Ondarrata and Zurriola are must-visits for surfers, and also host lively beach volleyball, football and tennis games. And in the summer months, you can take a short ferry ride to Isla Santa Clara , where you’ll find a pocket-sized beach with a bar and a natural salt water-filled swimming pool.

After a day by the water, you’ll be more than ready to go on a pintxo-crawl around town — the bite-sized delights are a staple of the city’s dining scene, and range from skewers of anchovies, olives and peppers to grilled morsels of foie gras atop bread. Wash it all down with a dry, Basque-style cider or a glass of cold Txakoli wine.
