Ready for all seas

Work on the first Rosetti Superyachts 38-metre EXP is currently underway at the San Vitale shipyard in Ravenna.

Rosetti Superyachts latest 37.83-metre superyacht project is progressing on schedule for her delivery to her European owner next year.

Ever since Rosetti Superyachts (RSY) was established in 2017, the brand has focused on the market for expedition yachts and supply-style vessels. But at first glance, the 37.8-metre project designed by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec in build for a European client does not look like a conventional explorer.

“It is true that in terms of aesthetics, she doesn’t resemble a typical explorer,” says Andrea Giora, RSY Sales Director and Board Member.

“But she has a long range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots, lots of storage for autonomous cruising, and big volumes inside and outside. So I would say she complies with the most important characteristics that we associate with an explorer.”

All the steel and aluminium work is finished, while 95 percent of the welding, 70 percent of the piping, 30 percent of the electrics, 15 percent of the joinery is under way, as well as the fairing and painting.


Her experienced owners are looking to travel the world, and at the top of their wish list was seaworthiness, extended range and autonomy.

Fulvio Dodich, RSY Chairman, said: “The experience of Rosetti Marino shines through the RSY 38-metre EXP in every detail, from the careful selection of equipment to the overall construction quality.”

Ermanno Bellettini, CEO of RSY, continued: “We’re accustomed to building commercial vessels that are required to operate year-round in some of the roughest seas in the world, so reliability and seaworthiness are guaranteed.”

“The owners also wanted to be able to interact with the yard in choosing the best suppliers and subcontractors, and we have been very open to that idea,” he said.

With a gross tonnage of 410GT, the RSY 38-metre EXP has volumes that are typical of larger yachts, and her 700-square-metres of space are divided almost equally between the interior and exterior.

On the lower deck is a beach club and four comfortable guest cabins (two twins and two doubles), as well the crew accommodation (three cabins), a mess, pantry and pro-spec galley.

Between the upper and main deck, there is also a dedicated laundry and storage room. For complete independence at sea, the yacht has almost 3,000 litres of fridge and freezer space in the galley and the crew pantry, and a technical room on the lower deck.

On the main deck is a lounge with double sofas facing the open aft deck and the dining area, plus the forward owner’s suite with office, spacious his-and-hers bathrooms, walk-in wardrobe and a fixed balcony on the starboard side.

Unusually, the principal saloon is on the upper deck and the tender is stowed on the open aft deck.

The captain’s cabin is located behind the wheelhouse with integrated bridge and there is a spacious, partially shaded alfresco lounge on the aft deck as well as a huge sunbed on the open foredeck. A useful food lift can serve the main deck, upper deck and sundeck. The 150-square-metre sundeck has a pool with cascade feature, bar unit, dining facilities and sun lounger for up to six people.

The fresh, contemporary interior styling is by BurdissoCapponi Yachts and Design. A key feature is the main lobby where a bespoke sculpture will occupy pride of place in the stairwell. The main deck lounge will also have a temperature-controlled wine cellar able to hold up to 150 bottles.

The RSY 38-metre EXP will be powered by twin MAN D2868 LE 425 engines (588kW) with a round bilge displacement hull, bulbous bulb, electric stabilisers and extended skeg optimised to cruise at between 10–11 knots, with a maximum speed of 13 knots.
