As part of a collaboration with Nobiskrug, Italian architects Borzelli and Berta have created Project Legato. Sitting at 90-metres in length, Project Legato is based upon Nobiskrug’s 90-metre hull line. She has a steel hull and superstructure and can be powered by either conventional or diesel-electric power.

With a balcony located in each of the six cabins, the outdoors blends effortlessly with the interior.

While the indoor and owner’s pool are each 5.7 metres deep, the pool aft on the main deck is deeper, at 8.9 metres. The design was inspired by the style of ancient Roman baths, where everything is built around an open central space and used all year-round.

The master suite also boasts a Jacuzzi surrounded by retracting glass panels, emphasising the connection between the exterior and interior.
