The new “One Hundred Feet” project from Sedna Yachts will be designed by Marino Alfani Design. This custom yacht with streamlined contours has been created from the outset with two different layouts, so that it meets the needs of both European owners on one hand and Brazilian customers on the other.
“All my designs, despite their diversity, share a few standout features,” commented the young Bergamo-based designer Marino Alfani.
The project from the San Paolo-based Sedna shipyardis expected to be presented in 2020. Like many of Alfani’s other projects, it has the designer’s signature exterior lines: clean, well-defined and streamlined.
The first sketch for this project dates back to 2017. Created as a sporty boat, it underwent various changes over the months, and now the shipyard has announced the start of production. The owner of the first unit, sold two years ago, wanted a more liveable yacht, on which recreation is more important than sportiness. For this reason, the yacht has been partially redesigned, with the addition of a deck and the creation of big, welcoming outdoor spaces for socialising.
This One Hundred Feet project is ready to win over owners with European tastes too, and that’s why two different layouts are offered.
The first unit, with the layout designed for Brazilian owners, stands out for the continuity between the living area, the kitchen and the cockpit, giving it a more recreational feel. The bow section of the Main Deck is occupied by the spacious, light-filled, full-beam owner’s cabin, while the guest night area on the Lower Deck consists of three big double staterooms and three cabins with twin beds.
The second version of the layout, created for the European market, has a more traditional organisation of the day area, with better separation between dining, living and cooking spaces.
The decor of this first unit stands out for its great originality: the spacious, welcoming and refined settings abound in wood, juxtaposed in perfect harmony with glossy lacquered surfaces and leather and steel accents.
The next units (the sales of the second and third units are currently being negotiated) can be decorated according to the owner’s wishes, from more contemporary and innovative styles to those more suited to classical tastes.
“I’d like my designs to be appreciated by “quality” owners who are familiar with the sea and know how to recognise the value of a boat without stopping at appearances, because what counts is often hidden away,” says Alfani.
“All this can’t be seen as an obsolete concept, but as something that affects the purity of the idea of a boat and its forms, content and quality”.
