Italian designer Federico Fiorentino has revealed the designs for a new 50 metre full aluminium superyacht concept, The Belafonte. She is particularly notable for her striking exterior design with a distinctive use of traditional elements such as mahogany cap rails and polished steel particulars, mixed with modern lines.
She will accommodate up to ten guests over five luxurious cabins, consisting of a full beam VIP suite, two twin cabins and one double all located on the lower deck. The owner’s suite is spatially impressive, boasting 84 square metres in total. The owner’s area is located forward on the main deck and includes a separate studio with a folding balcony, two walk in closets and two opulent bathrooms.
Elsewhere inside, a spacious, formal saloon and dining area are found on the main deck. The semi-enclosed upper deck is dedicated to socialising and entertainment, and features a spectacular sky lounge complete with an al fresco dining table for ten as well as shaded bar.
One of the main characteristics of The Belafonte is a large amount of open deck space, with a substantial pool located on the main deck and a Jacuzzi on the upper deck, both surrounded by large areas for sunbathing and relaxing. A reserved lounge area is found in the front of the upper deck which allows the guests a private space on board.
The yacht is conceived with a fast displacement hull and will have top speeds between 18 and 24 knots dependent upon the chosen engine configuration. Though the yacht was designed with no prior connections to a shipyard or client, Fiorentino reports that The Belafonte has recently attracted the interest of a potential client.
