The X47 Express Cruiser is the follow-up model to the X39 which was developed as the flagship of the Yanmar brand as part of the Premium Brand Project launched for the company's 100th anniversary in 2012. It is a 47-foot cruiser designed by Kiyoyuki Okuyama and developed in collaboration between Yanmar Holdings and Yanmar Marine International Asia, to fit the new island-hopping, where passengers can enjoy leisurely cruising and fast and pleasant travel from a marina to small islands.
The X47 has won iF Design Award for the product category, especially for its high sailing performance, interior and facilities that make it feel like home, and operability with Yanmar's unique joystick.
The iF Design competition has been held in Germany since 1953 and is one of the most celebrated and valued design competitions worldwide. Winners are selected every year by international design experts based on strict and neutral judging criteria and are awarded by iF International Forum Design GmbH.
Kintetsu and Yanmar jointly designed Harinakano Station in front of Nagai Park
Yanmar Holdings has collaborated with Kintetsu Railway on the design for the renovation of Harinakano Station on the Kintetsu Minami-Osaka Line, the closest station to the northeast gate of Nagai Botanical Garden. The design is inspired by the lush greenery of the park and the garden.
This is the first attempt for both Kintetsu and Yanmar to collaborate in designing a station. With this renovation, the secondary name of the station will be Nagai Park Botanical Garden Mae. We will make it widely known that the Nagai Park is easily accessed by Kintetsu train and create a clean station that brings a sense of excitement of going to the park, leading to attract people to use the train.
WAKU WAKU PARK CREATE CO., LTD.
Realizing A SUSTSINABLE FUTURE Creating new value in Nagai Park, Osaka, through food, sports, art, and learning
Waku Waku Park Create has managed and operated Nagai Park in Osaka City since April 2021. With a focus on food, sports, art, and learning, new facilities will be installed, and existing facilities will be utilized effectively, through events and creating a sense of liveliness. Through this initiative, we are committed to improve the value of city parks.
The Nagai Botanical Garden, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2024, was reopened in April 2022 after undergoing redevelopment such as soil improvement to bring out the original beauty of the plants. In addition, new facilities such as Yanmar Marché Nagai, a restaurant directly managed by Yanmar, two futsal courts with high-pile artificial turf, and Boken No Mori Nagai, a full-scale obstacle course, opened in July 2022, and we are working on more new attractions.
Nagai Park has various sports facilities, including three stadiums and a 2.8 km running circuit, in addition to a vast botanical garden. It has been popular as a city park where people of all generations, both locals and visitors, spend time. To realize the Yanmar Group’s brand statement, A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE, our concept for park management is excitement for all, excitement for tomorrow. We aim to create a park that will remain in the hearts of all visitors, transcending age and generations, by connecting the excitement of today to the promise of tomorrow.
In the management and operation of Nagai Park, we have also introduced equipment that leverages technology as a place to embody this philosophy. For the pond in the Nagai Botanical Garden, we have worked on improving the water quality using a water purification system, as a place to enjoy the beauty of the water feature. We will also install a bio-composter that composts food waste and contributes to resource recycling, and an energy management system linked to solar power generation and fuel-efficient equipment. We will also contribute to the realization of SDGs by adopting green power, which does not emit CO2, for the electricity used in the garden.
