In March 2018, YachtHarbour has reported that 63-metre yacht Project Vector has been launched by the Italian shipyard Rossinavi in their Viareggio-based yard and christened Utopia IV. The yacht project was commissioned by an American client in November 2014.This fast displacement yacht boasts an exterior design by Team For Design, which balances between elegance and attitude. The yard itself describes it as the compromise between a tri-deck motor yacht and a speed boat. Key features do include 70 square metre beach club, 3 spa pools and a touch-and-go helipad.Her naval architecture is by the Italian studio Arrabito Naval Architects. Gobbi's studio also designed the interior, which includes rich wood panelling to divide the main-deck saloon from the dining area.With a fast displacement hull, Utopia IV is powered with 4 Rolls Royce engines as well as four Kamewa waterjets, can reach a top speed of 28 knots and an cruising speed of 15 knots. She can easily reach a cruising speed of 18 knots using only 35% of propulsion power. The owners of the yacht created a video tour.<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/kd_F1V6Y7_c" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>“We wanted it to feel like a speedboat, with a minimum draft, efficient in its range of navigation, with an intelligent propulsion and completely tailor-made. At the beginning of the design process, we had to consider the relationship between the engine horsepower necessary to achieve certain speeds, and its weight... The overall balance is a particular feature of this boat, an interesting idea which makes Vector unique," said Federico Rossi, the COO of Rossinavi. With the interior volume of 930 GT, the interior is sleek and wide, with the opportunity to sleep 12 across 6 spacious cabins. The forward facing owner’s suite boasts a six-metre balcony and floor to ceiling glass windows that surround her 180-degree panoramic view. The master suite also includes a grand bathroom with wood panelling and marble, a double shower and Jacuzzi bath.
