Italian shipyard Rossinavi has today announced the launch of the 49.7-metre yacht Lel. Having touched water for the first time following a two-year build period, Lel is the collaborative effort of Kurt Lehmann, chairman of Yacht Moments, and the Florence-based yacht designer Luca Dini. Sporting interior and exterior designs from the drawing boards of Luca Dini Design & Architecture, the Livorno-based studio Arrabito Naval Architects was entrusted with her naval architecture.

Guests are accommodated in five cabins comprising a large main-deck master suite with a walk-in closet and a private balcony suspended above the sea, as well as four guest cabins which can merge into one grand VIP stateroom.

Designer Luca Dini commented: “The owner’s main request was to emphasise the open spaces to make the most of the open air and water, and I believe that I achieved the objective because Lel is like an actual terrace overlooking the sea, un pied dans l’eau, where nature meets technology.” Photo: RossinaviThe adjustable beach club features an indoor bar area and also houses the tender which can be managed separately once the automatic door that leads to the main deck is closed to form a garage. In this area, the cockpit area boasts a panoramic view overlooking a second exterior bar. On the upper deck, dining can be enjoyed alfresco with options to control the temperature, or alternatively, guests can gather on the sundeck to enjoy a forward-facing swimming pool, sun loungers, and bar.

At an economical speed of 11 knots, Lel will be able to achieve a transatlantic range of 4,000 knots.
