Rite of passage

Italian builders Cantiere delle Marche have delivered their latest Nauta Air 111, M/Y Hyhmä, to its new owner.

Naval architecture has been entrusted to Dutch company Vripack, while both her bold yet gracious lines and softly elegant interiors have been designed by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino of Nauta Yachts who work on the entire Nauta Air range for Cantiere delle Marche.

M/Y Hyhmä, Nauta Air 111, has been designed and built to the highest standards to fulfil a very demanding and experienced owner’s requests, specifically to cruise the Northwest Passage and documenting the marine wildlife during the trip in the Med and across the Atlantic. Hyhmä is the fourth yacht in the Nauta Air series and the biggest to date.

With a length overall of 33.83-metres and 7.80-metres beam and 315t displacement, she is also Cantiere delle Marche’s biggest boat to date. Hyhmä can host up to 12 guest in 5 suites and 7 crew members.



Two Caterpillar C18 Heavy Duty developing 500kW each push the Nauta Air 111 at a max speed of 13 knots with a range of above 5500 nautical-miles at economic speed.

From the profile, there is little doubt that Hyhmä is an oceangoing vessel. The lines for the three decks, topped by an elegantly shaped T-top, are straight with no sheerline. Nevertheless the horizontal development of all lines from bow to stern provide for a sense of dynamism while composing well proportioned volumes.
