Bernardo Zuccon unveils 54 metre superyacht Discovery
By Maarten Janssen
Drawing on his previous design experience, Bernardo Zuccon, son of Gianni Zuccon, one of Italy’s most prominent yacht designers, has designed a 54 metre explorer superyacht, named Discovery. The displacement vessel featuring living solutions that blend the relationship between interior and exterior spaces.
Discovery features a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure, designed to travel long distances at a cruising speed of 12 knots with a range of 4000 miles. Inovative solutions, such as a bow veranda, a large aft deck pool, and a large beach club in the stern with a skylight all around the perimeter of the pool above.
The main deck is entirely dedicated to guests and their social life, starting with a 16 metres long aft deck, that includes a half open winter garden. Inside, there is a large airy saloon, and dining area.
The upper deck again features a wide and long aft deck, that is accessible through the owner's cabin. Two greenhouses separate the aft deck from the master stateroom, and act as a 'green filter'. One deck higher, we find a huge sundeck that includes a helipad.
