Rossinavi has launched its new 50-metre full-custom full-aluminium superyacht M/Y Bel1 in Pisa, Italy.

The Italian boatbuilder, which is based in Viareggio and specialises in full-custom steel and aluminium superyachts, has partnered with Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design for the exteriors and Enrico Gobbi of the Team For Design studio for the interior design.

M/Y Bel1 is Rossinavi’s latest 50-metre superyacht with shaft lines and diesel propulsion.

“The goal was to combine stylistic coherence with extra dimensions, for example, on the 145-square-metre flybridge,” says Federico Rossi, chief operating officer of Rossinavi.

Key features of the yacht include its four stabiliser fins, designed to ensure a smooth and comfortable ride. On the upper deck, there is an aft area with a veranda, to enjoy the dining area in all four seasons.


The beach club is enclosed and the mezzanine deck creates a double level to make the areas feel more intimate.

Rossinavi says M/Y Bel1 was developed with the aim of giving it an innovative, original style and a strong personality, maximising the breadth of closed volumes and the usability of open areas.

“We are very satisfied and proud of this project, which, due to its originality and architectural complexity, has been quite challenging,” says Fulvio De Simoni, founder of Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design.

“However, at the same time, it has allowed us to express our creativity in inventing new forms without compromising functionality and the enjoyment of life on board the ship.”

The high and imposing hull, integrated superstructure, and the overall softness of the surfaces give the superyacht a modern appearance. The profile is characterised by the shape of the two large hull openings, which bring light to the salon and owner’s area and contrast with the linearity of the superstructure.

The staggered decks and proximity between the outdoor areas allow the aft portion of the ship to be perceived as a single large open area.

The aft mezzanine is positioned midway between the main deck and the upper deck and effectively connects the two main decks. The main deck cockpit offers great privacy and is ideal for the protected outdoor living area open to the beach area.

Thanks to the foldable sides and an aft hatch that can be opened, the aft transforms into a large terrace overlooking the sea.

The extension of the superstructure made it possible to create a large sun deck of over 145 square metres. The deck has been divided into several functional areas: the aft is intended for sunbathing, the shaded central portion hosts sofas and a bar, and the bow area revolves around the mini-pool.

The main deck cockpit includes a dining area protected from the elements by sliding glass panels.
