Double nomination for Permare Amer Yachts and the Amer Twin 94

The Shipyard Permare Amer Yachts is proud to communicate that, at the Boat Builder Awards 2018 at MetsTrade, its Amer Twin 94 received a double shortlisted nomination.

The first one is the nomination for ‘innovation in a production process’: working with Superfici from La Spezia, Amer Yachts introduced its first 3D printed component on its last new Amer Twin 94, presented at Cannes and Genova exhibitions. The 3D printed helm console is in ABS and PET material and it is equipped with different high technology instruments, including the Volvo Penta joystick.

The second nomination is in the field of ‘environmental initiative’: the last Amer 94, the first Twin 94 equipped with two Volvo Penta IPS 1350, has been built to reduce the environmental impact. The selection of the engines and variable speed generators is properly thought to reduce fuel consumption. For the deck of the ship, cork was chosen instead of the more traditional teak. Recycled and recyclable materials were used on the fly. Instead of the traditional antifouling a special adhesive film was used (it consists of a film applied in substitution of the traditional paint which avoids the annual treatment costs as it has a duration of 4/5 years) together with several other eco-friendly solutions.

Some insights about the Amer 94

The motor yacht Amer 94 was launched in August 2018. It has been called Superleggera in view of the challenge of designing a superyacht able to circumnavigate Italy without making any refuel. In September 2018 he received the Rina Green Plus during the Genoa Boat Show. Class notation was granted for innovative solutions that contribute to improving environmental performance beyond the minimum levels required by international environmental protection legislation. The Amer Twin 94 scored the highest ‘Green’ score in its category, at 147 points.


The Shipyard Amer Yachts Permare, in collaboration with Volvo Penta, has installed a revolutionary layout engine system with 2 IPS 1350 for the first time on a pleasure superyacht which allows a decrease of consumption and noise emissions with more comfort. Amer Yachts with the Amer Twin 94, and previously with the other models, has for the fourth consecutive year achieved a record, with the installation of IPS in the sector of superyachts.

On this boat the leitmotif is represented by the green color to explain the Permare philosophy of eco-sustainability. For the external bridges, cork was chosen instead of the traditional teak. The cork is a material, unlike conventional materials, extremely light thus allowing further savings on the weight of the boat, in addition to the weight saved with the installation of the Ips engines.

The application of Airlite, a special antibacterial paint, was also chosen. Bacteria are eliminated by the double action of superficial oxidation and by the high alkalinity of the surface. In addition, Airlite affects both pollutants that are harmful for human health and those that cause the greenhouse effect: in particular, it eliminates dangerous gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx) and sulfur oxides (SOx). Airlite has been used in the kitchen area, in the lockers and in the machine room.


FPT Industrial: let’s go, XC13

Andrea Abbà, FPT’s product marketing manager, told us about dialogui...
