Superyacht of the Week: The 46.6 metre Project 12

Last year, the Festival de la Plaisance was home to the presentation of the newly launched superyacht Project 12. At 46.6 metres LOA, this vibrant new addition to the Cantieri di Pisa-family was developed as a successful transition from their famed Akhir range into a larger scale vessel. With full ABS and MCA classification compliancy, Project 12 combines top performance with a sleek, contemporary exterior by Carlo Galeazzi and several ingenious features, forming a splendid vessel built for a highly experienced owner. Excitingly, Project 12 is currently for sale, which makes for a perfect opportunity to take a closer look at this magnificent superyacht.

With her current owner closely involved in the development and building process, Project 12 is a vessel that shows off plenty of personality and class. From her sleek exterior lines and generously streamlined silhouette, to her warm and sparkly interiors designed by Mark Berryman, she is all about combining the modern Italian sportiveness from her exterior features with the fresh, cozy and understated elegance found in all of her interiors.

From start to finish, Project 12 was built by the same dedicated team, starting with Cantieri di Pisa and finishing at Pisa Superyachts, ensuring the highest standards in quality.

One of the key features that make Project 12 such an attractive superyacht, is the generous sense of space that can be experienced throughout all decks. Starting with the main saloon, one of the central hubs for many social occasions, which boasts a warm and contemporary design with a surprisingly classic touch. The lounge is designed around a sumptuous U-shaped sofa with plush upholstery, surrounded by various modern armchairs, all in a striking blue colour. This area the obvious heart of the saloon, forming a central meeting spot for guests, with the many large surrounding windows supplying ample natural light, and a port side bar assuring refreshments the guests' fingertips. The colour palette is elegant and understated, with a base of crรจme and off-white for floors, ceiling and wall panels, warm brown for cabinetry, tables and woodwork, and fresh accents of deep blue for upholstery. Silver accents added by various accessories add delicate sparkles of class. Although the design scheme is distinctly modern, with contemporary lines and shapes, the overall ambiance is undeniably classic.

Moving into the main dining area, led by a wavy carpeting pattern, one discovers a large, rectangular classic dining table comfortably seating 12, surrounded elegant dining chairs in blue leather upholstery. The main saloon is a big, open space with a pleasantly informal atmosphere. Moving outside, the aft deck continues this generously spacious ambiance with a large U-shaped sofa paired with a set of charming round poufs, plus the intimate setting of a central coffee table with surrounding chairs. With dazzling 180 degree surrounding views, practically uninterrupted by the vessel's naval architecture, the ambiance here is all about airiness and class.

One of Project 12's key features are her excellent guest accommodations, offering voluminous luxury suites for a company of 12 to 14 guests. Her collection of guest quarters consists of 6 or 7 staterooms, depending on the application of an ingenious feature that allows the sumptuous full beam lower deck VIP suite to be divided into two large doubles. Starting off with a bang, there's a extensive and spacious master suite unveiled on the fore main deck. One enters the owner's apartment through a large private office, in a calm and refined Oriental style, with a wooden desk, facing outwards starboard side, as a solid curvy centrepiece.

Mirror wall panels port side emphasize the voluminous nature of this room, with several windows adding ample natural light and great views. The master stateroom is all about light, warmth and glamorous elegance. The main eye catcher is a gorgeous central artwork above the headboard. This beautifully crafted turquoise and azure centrepiece boasts a stunning abstract texture, reminiscent of an aerial photo depicting the clearest of tropical waters and the seabed below. This artwork adds brightness to the room's design, which is warm and modern, based on crรจme, chocolate and with added rich purple touches for upholstery and bedding. The ambiance is classic chic, particularly warm and private. With a lounge area, two large adjacent walk in wardrobes and a set of lavish his and hers en suites, these master quarters form lush guest accommodations that are as rich in space and luxury as they are in personality. The en suites, one with big shower area and one with a large bath tub, extend the stateroom's luxurious feel, being equally warm and private with an ambiance that is eloquent and refined.

The remaining guest quarters are located belowdecks, in the form of two double suites, two twins and one large full beam VIP suite aft. A sliding wall, conveniently hidden between the VIP's his and hers en suites, optionally divides these quarters into two additional doubles. With two Pullman berths found in the twin suites, the overall accommodation can thus be extended to suit a company of up to 16, when necessary. With regards to design and amenities, all guest suites are luxuriously appointed with sizeable en suites, all with large separate shower areas, plus ample storage space. Light, space and dashes of colour add to the elegant, warm ambiance, assuring every guest a stay onboard that is both comfortable and refined.

Where the main saloon boasts a design scheme emphasizing a warmth, intimate ambiance accentuated with a deep blue, the upper deck saloon successfully boasts a more informal atmosphere that is all about lounging, relaxation and aimed at erasing the boundaries between inside and outside living. Here, a fresh red colour spices up the design, which combines an understated colour palette with curvy lines and round shapes for furnishing. Two large sofas in soft red upholstery form the saloon's main ingredient, inviting guests to sit back and relax. Arguably the most exciting feature of this room are the large port and starboard side sliding doors, opening up and blending the interior with the exterior, bathing the sky lounge in natural light. Impressively, the bulwarks just outside these sliding doors slide down to create two jaw dropping balconies framed with dramatic vista views. These terraces will undoubtedly be guest favourites, either for enjoying a fine refreshment or simply relaxing and taking in the marvellous panoramas at any moment of the day.

Aft, the full beam sky lounge leads into an equally spacious aft deck, with a generously sized centrepiece al fresco dining table plus two L-shaped lounging sofas. This area is a perfect environment for day to night entertainment, from luxurious meals to elegant cocktail parties.

Upstairs, a spacious sun deck forms a big cherry on an already impressive cake. A large set of sun pads aft, big central Jacuzzi and lounge cockpit plus fully equipped bar fore allow guests to enjoy their day in every way they please. With a private and open ambiance plus equally stunning views for lounging and sunbathing, the fore upper deck offers an additional set of sun pads at guests' disposal.

Due to her voluminous spaces, her luxurious nature and tasteful design, plus a large collection of amenities and surprising, flexible layout, Project 12 is the perfect yacht for any type of company. Whether it be charter clients or private guests, business associates or family and friends, she offers the best in luxury and class for everyone. Currently for sale, Project 12 is available for a highly attractive asking price of โ‚ฌ 19.500.000, through Burgess.
