Rosetti Superyachts (RSY) presented two new superyacht concepts today at the Palm Beach International Boat Show. Measuring 48-metres and 85-metres respectively, both yachts are designed by Tommaso Spadolini.
The smaller of the two concepts is a 48-metre, sub-500 GT supply vessel. “Incorporating the philosophy of our 85-metre Supply Vessel into a 48-metre yacht of less than 500GT was quite a challenge,” says Fulvio Dodich, RSY partner and chairman. “It meant optimising the interior and exterior layout to ensure efficient use of space while maintaining independent circulation flows for guests and crew. At the same time, we were able to offer custom options to suit the lifestyles of different owners and enhance the yacht’s flexibility.”
Large tenders and touch-and-go helicopter operations are possible thanks to an open aft deck of almost 18-metres, although RSY state that a number of options are also available, including using this space as an open-air beach club with infinity pool. The vessel can also be built to Ice Class criteria upon request.
Performance wise, the RSY 48m will be powered by either twin MTU or twin CAT C32 engines, providing a top speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.
The new 85-metre concept - coming in at 2,700 GT - is based on the same technical platform by Rolls Royce as the 85-metre Supply vessel, with minor modifications and a sleek exterior design. “Simplicity and elegance are the leitmotifs of the exterior design,” says Spadolini. “Whereas the Supply Vessel has more utilitarian lines befitting her explorer vocation, the superyacht has a softer, more sinuous profile, while the reverse bow adds a hint of determination and aggression.”
“This is a high-volume superyacht that offers huge owner and guest spaces, both inside and out,” says Dodich. “But as always, we can offer bespoke solutions. We’ve developed a version with four decks instead of five, for example, which reduces the gross tonnage and provides a more sporty profile. It’s completely up to the individual client.”
Both versions offer all the bespoke amenities that you would expect aboard a superyacht of her size and gross tonnage, but arguably the standout feature is the expansive beach club and wellness area. Housing a gym with a panoramic glass wall overlooking the swim platform, plus massage room, sauna and hammam, when the two side terraces are deployed the beam is extended to 19 metres. The adjacent large garage can hold two tenders and a wide array of water toys. Another highlight is the master stateroom on the upper deck forward that covers 123 square metres and independent access to a private swimming pool and the touch-and-go helideck. Four guest cabins and a full-beam VIP suite are located on the main deck forward.
