Dynamiq Yachts is the brainchild of Sergei Dobroserdov, and is based on the concept of building contemporary superyachts, focusing on efficiency, technology and performance. The first vessel in Dynamiq Yachts' Gran Tourismo Transatlantic range is now under construction, and on schedule for delivery in August 2016, 29 months after the contract was signed in April 2014.

The 38.9m aluminum displacement yacht has a maximum speed of 21 knots and a cruising speed of 19 knots with a range of 3,000nm. D4 Dynamiq, is also equipped with two 4000 Fortjets POD drives with contra rotating propellers, the system offers benefits such as reduced noise and vibration. This propulsion configuration also reduces the size of the engine room by 18 per cent.

Azure Naval Architects were initially presented with the brief of a hull that is fast, efficient, comfortable and capable of transatlantic cruising. Also in the design brief was a low draught of 1.8m or less to allow access to shallow anchorages and islands in the Mediterranean, Asia or Caribbean regions.

Hydrodynamic specialists Van Oossanen also worked on the vessel, focusing on low resistance and the efficiency of the vessel. The contemporary interior was then designed by London based designer Bannenberg and Rowell.

Reaching its 16th month of construction, D4 Dynamiq, has been moved to the finishing shed to begin the next phase of construction.
