The all-aluminium superyacht features both interior and exterior design by Guido de Groot and naval architecture by the Dutch studio, Ginton Naval Architects, with the yacht's onboard technological solutions by Siemens and Schottel.
In terms of her layout, motor yacht Vanadis features a master cabin and two guest cabins on the lower deck accommodating a total of six guests, with the main deck indoor areas behind the wheelhouse including a spacious salon furnished with a large L-shaped sofa, a dining area, and an open galley. A crew of four is also accommodated for on board.
Two comfortable lounge areas are located both forward and aft on the main deck. A second pilot station is located on the flybridge, which is designed for outdoor relaxation and includes sun loungers, a bar area and a dining area.

This ensures low consumption and limited environmental impact, as well as increased comfort on board thanks to reduced noise and vibrations both at anchor and while cruising.
Twin CAT C9.3 B engines allow Vanadis to reach a maximum speed of 12.5 knots which drops to 8 knots when cruising in electric mode. She is also fitted with a set of AKASOL lithium-ion batteries (175 kWh) which supply most of the onboard utilities, allowing her to remain at anchor at zero emissions for up to 17 consecutive hours and to cruise at limited speed for up to 120 minutes, depending on the power load. Moreover, the yacht also comes equipped with both gyroscope- and fin- anti-rolling stabilizing systems.

“The Vanadis opens up a new era for CCN", explains CCN’s CEO Diego Michele Deprati – "We want to be pioneers in promoting a cultural revolution that we deem essential to truly respecting our planet. “
He continued, 'Green technology' is the way ahead our shipyard has chosen for the future. The new “E-Prop” range has been born with a view to widening and deepening current research on innovative technological devices and solutions, with the final goal of safeguarding the Earth, which has now become an imperative”.
