The Italian shipyard Rossinavi has recently delivered Lel, 49.7m superyacht, which was previously known as Project FRO38. After emerging from the shipyard in Pisa at the end of January this year, she finished her two years construction period.




The design of Lel was created by Luca Dini. A long-standing client ordered the yacht in the fall of 2017 and the delivery is scheduled for later this year. Lel was described by Dini as "an actual terrace overlooking the sea, un pied dans l’eau, where nature meets technology”.




Lel puts high volumes of internal space within 500GT, and she features an aluminium superstructure. Her design includes big windows, a spacious beach club, and an upper sun deck with a pool.


Dini commented: 

The interiors are contemporary and elegant and everything is custom, right down to the light switches. It’s in this kind of work that Rossinavi excels: it felt like we had the shipyard at our fingertips, every wish of ours was their command. It was a very positive build experience.

The owner’s main request was to emphasize 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.




Other key features of the yacht include a spacious beach club that naturally merges the interior-exterior spaces with the side and stern doors lowered, a crystal veranda leading out to deck areas, and a private balcony connected to the owner's cabin. 


Claudio Rossi, Chief operating officer of Rossinavi, said that the new motor yacht is:

A good interpretation of the eternal compromise between sport design and the exploitation of the internal areas. This project represents a very good mix of those two contrasting elements that find a new equilibrium in this two-deck yacht.




Equipped with twin MTU 12V4000 M93L diesel engines with 3,460hp each, she will be able to achieve a transatlantic range of 4,000 knots. Even though Lel is everything else but small, she can reach a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 19 knots or 13 knots at the half-load condition.

5 common mistakes when purchasing a superyacht
Superyachts are one of the most prestigious assets in the world, however the ability to acquire a superyacht unfortunately doesn't always prevent you from a number of mistakes when purchasing and operating it.Below we are listing 5 common mistakes experienced by quite a few newly made superyacht owners:1) Purchasing a superyacht that is too big to handleNot only would you have to pay for the numerous crew, but you would also have other significant expenses accrued, reaching up to 10% of the yacht’s price. Moreover, if your usage of the yacht is categorized as active, those expenses can get even larger. You also have to think about the fuel, parking in the marina, electricity, agent fees, surveys, technical support for the numerous installed equipment and even more.2) Choosing and working with a broker with not enough experienceSuperyachts are a particular category of vessels that require special treatment. You need to make sure that the broker you are working with is specializing exactly in superyachts. You should always ask for adequate figures for this type of vessel, and the broker must seriously pre-inspect the yacht before providing an offer.3) Appointing a dealer representative as your yacht managerA dealer representative’s main goal would be to safeguard the interests of his main employer and to increase profitability of his company by selling more yacht-related services. What’s more, when you have any issues with the warranty, there are high chances that you will end up losing that dispute, as your yacht manager will be defending the dealer’s interests primarily.4) Having lack of technical supervision over the construction of the yachtIt’s critical to have an independent technical control over yacht’s construction. It’s always important to know that a Dutch shipbuilder differs from an Italian one. Dutch shipbuilders would never start doing anything without an approved plan, while Italians would rather place a pipeline or cable at any appealing place. Therefore, it’s very important to have an independent technical overview during the yacht’s construction.5) Purchasing a superyacht without any advice from a consultantYou might have a law degree, but without any relevant experience it is likely that you will not get a favorable outcome. You always need to consult with an independent expert (broker or yacht manager) before ordering a yacht, preferably with a person who has substantial experience in operating a super- or megayacht.
