From brick ovens to 1960s Ferraris, this is what we want this week...

Wishlist: Ferrari
Wishlist: Mazu Thirtyeight Yacht

Mazu Thirtyeight Yacht

Although designed as a tender for larger yachts, the Mazu Thirtyeight is an impressive day cruiser on its own. As the name suggests, this sleek vessel measures 38 feet long and is complete with a dining area, a bimini and a retractable swim platform, while below deck you’ll also find an en suite bedroom alongside two galleys.

Specs-wise, it has a maximum speed of 45 knots and is powered by your choice of Volva Penta diesels.

Wishlist: Toto Oven Grill

Toto oven grill

Baking a pizza but have a craving for ribs? Grilling a few succulent cuts of meat but also fancy gorging on some baked goods? Fear not, for Italian company Alfa 1977 has your back with its new outdoor grill-cum-oven – the ultimate piece of kit for al fresco dining.

The traditional brick oven is powered by wood and can reach temperatures of up to 400 degrees, while the grill can use both wood and charcoal and comes with a stainless steel grid and wok support. Better still, the whole unit can be assembled in just four steps and has been given a weatherproof coating, meaning that you can channel you inner Gordon Ramsay throughout the year.

Wishlist: Mu-so speaker

Naim mu-so Qb

Back when Bentley Motors was looking for a sound system to install inside its luxury automobiles, it hired Naim to do the job. And it’s easy to see why: its products are some of the best you can find on the premium audio market. And the company has just released the mu-so Qb, an 8.6 inch cube version of its entry level mu-so.

All programming and functions are controlled via the Qb touchscreen and your iOS/Android device, while signature mu-so features (such as the glass touch screen and contoured grill) are still present. And despite its bijou-sized build, it packs an incredible punch with two microfiber dome tweeters, two mids and a single woofer.

“The Sweatshirt” by Asket

Online Swedish retailer Asket has a brand philosophy we can buy into: transparency in its production and luxury essentials at reasonable prices. Our pick of the lot? This classic crewneck sweatshirt. Cut to a tailored fit from custom, unbrushed loopback fabric and stripped from unnecessary details, it’s the ultimate essential for a classic ensemble. Wear with dark selvedge jeans for maximum impact.

Wishlist: Ferrari

1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/6C

The 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB/GC is the ultimate four wheeler every gent needs. This particular GTB is an “interim” car with a lightweight alloy body, long-nose and six carburetors. And because these are the most sought-after specifications available, they help give this beauty the same performance level as the next evolution of the 275 range, the GTB/4.

With a pristine ownership and maintenance history (alongside its first-class features), this is one of the finest Ferraris money can buy.

Wishlist: Leica

Leica TL2

Mention Leica and most camera aficionados will think of its worldly M-series rangefinder that has barely been modified since the days of film. However, the T-Series mirrorless model is the brand’s lesser-known, but more modern, offering. And the latest in the range – the TL2 – has just been given some impressive new tweaks.

The sensor is all-new, moving from 16 to 24 megapixels, while the AF is three times faster than its predecessor. It also provides a sensitivity range of ISO 100-50,000 and includes a well-considered Auto ISO mode that aims to keep shutter speeds high in order to eliminate blurring. Crafted from a single block of aluminium, it’s available now in either silver or black.

Wishlist: RT100 Turntable

RT100 turntable

With the vinyl revival in full swing, British audio specialist Roberts is getting in on the action in celebration of its 85th anniversary. The design is simple and the body is made from wood veneer and is complete with a clear perspex removable dust cover. For a modern twist, it comes – as expected – with USB connectivity as well as a built-in phone amplifier which lets you connect the turntable to Roberts’ R-Line series of multi-room products. Moreover, thanks to a USB output you can rip your favourite albums to MP3, WAV or FLAC.
