Work is currently underway on the first hull of Rosetti Superyachts’ 38-metre EXP explorer yacht. The 37.83-metre superyacht project is progressing on schedule at the San Vitale shipyard in Ravenna for her delivery to her European owner next year.Photo: Rosetti SuperYachtsPhoto: Rosetti SuperYachtsWith exteriors designed by Sergio Cutolo of Hydro Tec, this unconventional explorer design features interiors by Italian studio BURDISSOCAPPONI Yachts & Design. The current progress of the yacht stands with the aluminium work finished along with 95% of the welding, 70% of the piping, 30% of the electrics, 15% of the joinery, and the fairing and painting underway. The RSY 38m EXP has a volume of 410 GT which is more typical for larger yachts, and boasts a space of 700 square metres onboard divided almost equally between the interior and exterior.Photo: Rosetti SuperYachtsPhoto: Rosetti SuperYachts“It’s true that in terms of aesthetics she doesn’t resemble a typical explorer,” says Andrea Giora, RSY Sales Director and Board Member. “But she has a long-range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots, lots of storage for autonomous cruising, and big volumes inside and outside. So I would say she complies with the most important characteristics that we associate with an explorer.”Photo: rosetti SuperYachtsPhoto: rosetti SuperYachtsHighlights on board the first hull of the RSY 38m EXP project include a 150-square-metre sun deck with a pool, bar unit, dining facilities, a sun lounge for up to six, and a beach club located on the lower deck. The main saloon of the RSY 38m EXP is situated on the upper deck and the tender is stowed on the open aft deck alongside a partially shaded al fresco lounge.Photo: rosetti SuperYachts"The experience of Rosetti Marino shines through the RSY 38m EXP in every detail, from the careful selection of equipment to the overall construction quality,” says Fulvio Dodich, RSY Chairman.Photo: Rosetti SuperYachtsThe interiors are characterised by light and dark stained oak, with a bespoke sculpture being the key feature in the main lobby. The lounge on the main deck is equipped with a temperature-controlled wine cellar able to hold up to 150 bottles and double sofas facing the open aft deck and the dining area. At the fore is the owner's suite with an office, spacious His & Hers bathrooms, walk-in wardrobe and a fixed balcony on the starboard side. Other accommodation on the RSY 38m EXP project is divided among four comfortable staterooms comprising two twins and two doubles, while housing the crew in three cabins.Photo: Rosetti SuperYachtsPhoto: Rosetti SuperYachtsThe owners had specified seaworthiness, extended range and autonomy as their top priority. “We’re accustomed to building commercial vessels required to operate year-round in some of the roughest seas in the world, so reliability and seaworthiness are guaranteed,” comments Ermanno Bellettini, CEO of RSY. “The owners also wanted to be able to interact with the yard in choosing the best suppliers and subcontractors, and we have been very open to that idea.”Photo: Rosetti SuperYachtsThe RSY 38m EXP will be powered by twin MAN D2868 LE 425 engines allowing her to cruise at 10-11 knots and reach a maximum speed of 13 knots.
