Italian yacht designer Federico Fiorentino has collaborated with yacht builder Eurocraft to create a contemporary yet capable expedition yacht that it has dubbed a “true crossover”. With sharp and modern exterior lines offering both an attractive aesthetic and ultimate luxury as well as superior seaworthiness, the full-displacement yacht would be sure to turn heads.
As well as an impressive look, there is advanced technical know-how behind the design from Federico Fiorentino. The studio comments that the expedition vessel would offer maximum comfort, total reliability and surprising efficiency, which are all key attributes for any superyacht that will be venturing to far-flung shores.
The concept’s hull design features a strong, masculine look with a grey-blue hull accented by chrome and black. Vast glazing floods the interior with natural light, in particular for the owner’s suite in prime position at the foremost point of the main deck’s interior.
The yacht would be able to accommodate up to 10 guests in a full-beam VIP suite, two twins and a double cabin, as well as the owner’s suite. Guests would be looked after by up to nine crew.
Federico Fiorentino was inspired by design elements seen on workboats, such as the near-vertical bow which also offers technical advantages for efficiency, cutting through the water and maximising length at the waterline. As well as ocean-crossing abilities, a buyer could opt for Ice Class compliance in order to explore to polar regions.
Hybrid propulsion solutions are also on offer for owners looking to maximise efficiency as well as reduce emissions and operating costs.
The sun deck design features a bar, shaded seating area and lounging spaces as well as a Jacuzzi while a vast lounging and socialising space on the upper deck aft can be converted to a helipad. The main foredeck has space to stow
The 46-metre expedition yacht is expected to take between 24 and 30 months for construction at Eurocraft, and she is offered for sale by Yacht & Villa International at 23.25 million euro.
