G WHIZ, a yacht capable of speed, reliability, comfort and style. Every element was minutely scrutinized to meet these objectives.
Aluminium construction was specified and the long foredeck
superstructure mounded in Kevlar to provide stowage and extend the
dramatic profile. And to achieve the desired almost 50-knot speed, twin
MTU engines feed 7,200 hp to power the largest pair of "Levi drive"
units in existence. A large master suite and twin-bedded guest suite are
ample accommodation for the extended cruising this yacht can undertake.
The design also incorporates a light and airy open-plan saloon with an
integral galley which leads out onto a spacious aft deck. Permanent
crew of three to ensure a smooth running, are accommodated in the
Captain's cabin and twin-berthed foc'sle. Lastly, the yacht's striking
profile should not be marred by the tender which is neatly stowed aft on
the swimming platform, ready to be launched easily by means of a davit.
The result of an extensive research and collaboration between the late
Jon Bannenberg, Naval architect Renato “Sonny” Levi and Brooke Yachts
produced the epitome of innovation and elegance in a fast yacht. The
profile and interior are unmistakably Bannenberg's inspiration through
to the clever use of fabrics and colour. There is sophistication,
comfort and style – but also fun. The ride is exhilarating. But the
level of noise and vibration usually associated with high speed is,
quite simply, not there. It is impossible to imagine the experience of
being propelled at 50 knots seated in the high tech wheelhouse or
lounging in comfort on the aft deck. There is no parallel. G. WHIZ is
the fulfilment of a dream.
