Just a few days after the announcement of the construction “on speculation” of a second RSY 38m EXP, a letter of intent has been issued and signed.This is the second LOI signed in few days after the already announced one for a 40m Explorer signed during the Cannes Yachting Festival.In that case the owners are European sailing enthusiasts.“The owners of this second 38 metre were enchanted by the sturdiness of the boat with its ample volumes and efficient use of space. During the sea-trial the silence of the interiors and especially the sensation of being aboard a sailing boat while relaxing on the balcony of the owner’s suite, were the decisive factors in their choice. Naval architect Sergio Cutolo and his team in Hydro Tec will once again work alongside us for the naval engineering, the design of the exteriors and the layout of the interiors. Delivery is planned for August 2023,” said Andrea Giora, Sales & Marketing Director.Motor yacht Emocean, the first RSY 38m EXP and the first yacht ever to have been built by the Rosetti Marino Group and its subsidiary Rosetti Superyachts Spa, premiered at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021 has been welcomed as a sensation by experts and public, so much as to have been recognized with the coveted award “Revelation of the year” at the 2021 World Yacht Trophies.“By displaying Emocean at the Cannes Yachting Festival, we have attracted the attention of boat owners who are looking for an extremely reliable shipyard. Rosetti Marino Group’s experience in building commercial vessels, strengthened by ongoing investments and all those skills developed and enhanced by converting our experience to pleasure yachting, will allow us to satisfy the requirements of the market niche that believes us to be their best answer,” concluded Ermanno Bellettini, Chairman & Ceo of Rosetti Superyachts.

Feadship will unveil its latest Feadship Future Concept at the 2021 Monaco Yacht Show. Synthesising the very latest thinking on how owners and their guests actually enjoy their time on superyachts, the 81.75m Pure is also fully future-compatible in terms of likely developments over the next decade in propulsion and efficiency.From X-stream in 2006 to Choice in 2016, Feadship regularly made waves in the superyacht sector by releasing a Future Concept. These deep dives into the likely requirements of the next generation of owners by Feadship’s designers and naval architects were all based on client’s feedback, long brainstorming sessions and in-depth research studies. An impressive number of the ideas posited by these groundbreaking concepts have since seen the light of day on Feadship builds including the hybrid propulsion pioneered by F-stream, the low fuel consumption suggested by Breathe and the desire for eco-friendly design showcased by Aeon.Five years on, a meeting of the finest Feadship minds in terms of design, engineering, innovation and construction has resulted in the striking Future Concept Pure. Featuring the purest architecture both in its sculptural exterior profile and stunning open-plan interior, Pure is designed to offer a true sense of connectivity and togetherness for all who come aboard. Every aspect of this Future Concept is based on feasible elements that Feadship is certain could be built tomorrow with adventurous clients, including the lower deck command centre which replaces the traditional bridge.Designers Jan Schaffers and Tanno Weeda will be at the Feadship stand in Monaco and will explain the technologies and explore the potential with fascinated visitors. More details on Pure will be released very soon. Feadship was formed as a group in 1949 as a marketing partnership between six Dutch shipyards, de Vries Lentch, Van de Stadt, Witsen & Vis, Akerboom, De Vries Scheepsbouw and Van Lent Shipyard, and De Voogt Naval Architects. Feadship is well-known as one of the Netherlands’ most elite yacht builders and delivers superyachts from 50–100+ meters in length.Credits: Feadship

Sanlorenzo Yachts closes the sale of the third and fourth units of the 57Steel and launches the second 62Steel. The 57Steel is amongst the latest additions to Sanlorenzo's superyacht fleet that are conquering the international market. An unstoppable progress that has led to the sale of the third and fourth units of the 57Steel, the latter concluded by the Bulgarian dealer Best Boats Only. Confirming Sanlorenzo's commitment to significantly reducing the impact of yacht use on the marine ecosystem, the third vessel, sold in collaboration with Russian dealer West Nautical, will be equipped with a new generation diesel-electric propulsion system that will see a significant evolution in terms of energy efficiency and reduced footprint and will be integrated with the latest generation of lithium battery and hotel management systems.The 57Steel is the result of intense typological research carried out by the shipyard together with Studio Zuccon International Project, which has led to the creation of a 56.7m long yacht with five decks and a tonnage of 1050 GT. "The versatility of use that distinguishes the spaces on board is a key element of the 57Steel, it makes it possible to satisfy the many requests of a heterogeneous and multicultural market like that of superyachts. A model in which there is no ostentation of the brand and whose external lines have a defined and extremely fluid, transparent and clear trend in which the language of the shipyard shines through. We can define 57 Steel as a skillful balancing act between content and container," says Bernardo Zuccon. The large volumes, which strongly characterise this model, have been obtained through the creation of an innovative layout that alters the traditional balance on board: the wheelhouse area, normally at the bow of the upper deck, has been relocated to an additional deck – a real bridge deck as on larger yachts – thus making it possible to use the upper deck in a different way.This is where the owner's cabin is located, a 54 sq. m space overlooking the very large owner deck, a private deck from which to enjoy an exclusive view of the infinite sea. The new layout has also made it possible to create a spacious full-beam VIP cabin at the bow of the main deck, which can be used as a second owner's cabin. One of the features most appreciated of the 57Steel is the 110 sq. m beach area, created by opening hatches on three sides which become small beaches on the water's edge, illuminated by the transparent-bottomed swimming pool on the main deck, and the decision to place the garage at the bow, which has made it possible to create a large space equipped to house tenders of up to 7.5m and numerous toys.At the same time as the sale of the two 57Steels, Sanlorenzo launches the second unit of the 62Steel, a 61.5m superyacht with a maximum beam of 11.9m, a gross tonnage of 1300 tonnes and five decks.This model is full of comfortable spaces that provide a truly special experience for Sanlorenzo owners in their private moments of loisir. Starting from the vast private area of the owner's suite, a good 215 sq. m, on the upper deck, which, in addition to enjoying an unparalleled 180° panoramic view, is linked to the outdoor area in the bow of over 140 sq. m, with large sunbathing and relaxation areas and a swimming pool. An entire deck for the exclusive use of the owner. A private beach which extends under cover for 92 sq. m, with areas to relax, a bar area, gym and hammam, plus another 40 sq. m of folding terraces aft and on both sides that offer guests the chance to enjoy the sea "au fil de l'eau" for swimming, diving and sunbathing enhanced by the shimmering sea. To completely free up space in the beach area, the 62Steel has been designed with two garages with access through lateral openings, midship, which contain the main 9m tender to starboard and the service tender and jet ski to port. The first unit in the line 62Steel, motor yacht Cloud 9 will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show from 22 to 25 September.Sanlorenzo was founded in 1985 in Viareggio by yacht builder Gionvanni Jannetti. In 2005, Massimo Perrotti became the majority shareholder in the shipyard. Sanlorenzo builds yachts ranging from 28.6 to 62 meters in length. Credits: Sanlorenzo
