The Italian Sea Group has today announced the launch of their latest 75-metre superyacht: Planet Nine. Known as Project 575 until now and marking the 575th vessel to be launched by the Italian yard, the Ice Class yacht features an interior from the German studio, Fitz Interior. On board she accommodates guests across five generous cabins on the lower deck, as well as 300 square metre owner’s deck featuring two cabins on the main deck. A VIP stateroom is also found on the upper deck aft. Stand out features on the yacht include a large beach club and spa, cinema room on the main deck, and two elevators - one solely for the use of crew and another connecting the lower deck and the sundeck for guests.
She also comes equipped with two 9.75-metre Rupert Marine tenders stored in the tender bay on the main deck aft, as well as a helipad built to accommodate an Agusta Grande helicopter. Planet Nine also features dedicated accommodation and an office for the helicopter pilot. CEO and Worldwide Sales Director of the Group, Giuseppe Taranto, comments on the launch of Planet Nine, stating: “We are proud of this construction and are confident she will be a benchmark in her category. She is a yacht with an unique style that will attract attention in every port. Planet Nine is also a great achievement in terms of technology.” She will be completed later this year.
