Italian yard Cantiere delle Marche has announced that its Nauta Air 111 yacht has been delivered to its owner, who has named her Hyhmä.
The 33.83-metre (111-foot) explorer yacht is constructed from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure to a design by Nauta Yachts, while Dutch studio Vripack developed the naval architecture.
Sold in January 2016 to an experienced Latin-American yachtsman, Hyhmä accommodates up to 12 guests across five cabins, including a full-beam owner’s suite situated forward of the main deck, two VIP cabins, and two twin cabins with Pullman berths. The crew quarters allow for up to seven staff.
Yard co-founder Vasco Buonpensiere commented, “With a common target represented by the will of allowing this very special owner/friend to cruise the Northwest Passage and documenting the marine wildlife during the trip, we have created an explorer vessel which – as nature does – combines beauty and strength seamlessly in perfect harmony.
“Hyhmä is definitely one of the projects which has created more pathos and emotions in this shipyard, and we all feel her like she is our daughter.”
Her interior boasts an array of furniture from designer brands, such as Sartori, Poltrona Frau, Flexform, Minotti and Paola Lenti. Other key features include storage space for a 6.2-metre Cobra RIB tender on the upper deck aft.
Designer Mario Pedol added, “Hyhmä’s exterior expresses sober, elegant and seductive strength. This explorer yacht communicates its uncompromising seaworthiness through straightforward volumes combined with strong and decided lines in elements such as the shapes of the windows and portholes.
“While she picks up some of the features that made her predecessor Narvalo an international prize winner, Hyhmä manages to even improve on them, thanks to her longer LOA and wider beam.”
The tri-deck displacement yacht has a beam of 7.8 metres, ensuring plenty of interior space for rest and relaxation. Power comes from a pair of Caterpillar C18 ACERT diesel engines for a top speed of 13 knots and a maximum range of 5,700 nautical miles at nine knots, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 46,700 litres.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 42.8-metre (140-foot) Project K42, which will become the yard’s flagship upon delivery later in 2018.
