The Bvcintoro project started in 1991 by Raul Gardini at the Tencara Shipyard, in Porto Marghera, the same constructor responsible of the build of Il Moro di Venezia and Mascalzone Latino, that took Italy to the America´s Cup.
At that time the Bvcintoro was set to be the most beautiful yacht in the world. A beautiful 60m superyacht designed by German Frers, that featured a fast hull, like in the America´s Cup, constructed from Epoxy, carbon and Kevlar composites.
But in 1993, the construction of the yacht was put on hold, with only her hull finished. In 1999 the Tencara yard was sold to the Venezian entrepreneur Stefano Gavioli. Unfortunately, after the launch of Mascalzone Latino in 2002, he decided to stop activities at the yard. The result was that Bvcintoro was left uncompleted, and was parked in front of Tencara´s shipyard.
In February 2009 a new owner invited Alex Pirard Yacht Design to develop an exterior design proposal. Though these images are just a preliminar study, Bvcintoro should have 2 carbon fibber masts, the first 61m tall, the second 45m, with around 2.100m2 of 3D laminated sails.
The actual design plans to have a spacious deck with a glass enclosed deckhouse. The deckhouse should be constructed in carbon fibber and structural glass. The different doors, placed on each side, could slide and open or close the cabin to the exterior. The interior can be closed off, but if guests feel like sun, wind, and the water, they can open the sliding doors and get the feel of an open boat.The deckhouse features a navigation cockpit and a living room with a spacious saloon, a 12 places dinning table, a library and a bar.
In front of the deckhouse, there is an exterior lounge area. Covered by a high-tech bimini, guests can relax in a safe environment. In the stern there is another exterior guest area, with comfortable sofas and a sunbathing area with sunloungers.
The interior layout can be arranged in different ways, depending on the requirements of the owner. One option consists on a Master Suite with a private living room, 1 VIP Cabin and 2 double cabins. In front the guest area, there are 4 cabins for the crew. The colour & trim and materials could combine exclusive woods and leathers in order to create a comfortable and relaxed ambient.
