Rosetti Superyachts have announced new models to be added to the brand’s range, including the 38-metre EXP and the 65-metre EXP explorer vessels as well as the 55-metre support vessel, the 55 SV.
Inspired by Rosetti Marino’s experience in building working vessels capable of operating in extreme conditions, this support vessel is a link between commercial shipbuilding and the world of explorer yachts.
Designed to combine style with a rugged aesthetic, the 55 SV was developed in collaboration with design studio, HydroTec. The same name behind the designer and architecture of the 38 EXP explorer vessel, which is currently in build.
Prioritising minimised motion and increased comfort, the 55 SV features a steel hull with low hydrodynamic resistance, an aluminium superstructure and a balanced weight distribution. Noted decisions that contribute to the vessel’s ability to cruise long distances across all sea and weather conditions.
Performance-wise, the 55 SV can reach a top speed of 22-knots, thanks to two 2,600HP engines, making it fast enough to reach destinations ahead of a mothership.
“Our 55m Support Vessel, conceived in collaboration with HydroTec, embodies the DNA of Rosetti Marino’s experience in the naval sector, offering the market a more comfortable and refined version of a commercial vessel, but preserving at the same time the core characteristics of safety and reliability at sea,” said Chairman and CEO of Rosetti Superyachts, Ermanno Bellettini.
With a 224-square metre open deck, this new support vessel provides ample space to accommodate whatever an owner might envision, beginning with collection of toys and tenders and moving into submarines, a helicopter or containers for cargo and provisions. This 55-metre vessel also offers owners a shadow vessel to can house extra crew and staff.
The main deck can also be equipped with a comfortable salon, galley, owner’s suite and three double cabins while the lower deck can host up to seven cabins for the crew.
The interior design can also be customised.
