Today during the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show, leading Italian shipbuilder, Fincantieri, along with yacht designers Pininfarina, introduced the new latest-generation luxury superyacht Ottantacinque concept.
According to both companies, Ottantacinque will be a cutting-edge superyacht with five decks, each of which will feature technological solutions and exclusive interior fittings. At 85 metres long and 2,460 gross tonnes, she will have six guest cabins, an owner’s stateroom, 11 crew cabins and a maximum speed of 18 knots.
The most significant feature includes twin pools on the main deck that are raised with the side bulwark, and together with an elevated sun bed, offer uninterrupted views on the sea. With an adjustable bottom, the water depth can be varied and reduced to zero to create a large open platform, spanning over 160 square metres.
Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri stated, “We already are among one of the few megayacht builders managing all the business activities, from sales to the product life cycle. Now, thanks to this stunning project, resulting from the partnership with Pininfarina, not only do we enhance our position in the sector with the highest industrial-level collaboration, but also we are an Italian real point of reference in a market that, as all luxury niches, highly demands the capacities and taste of our country.”
Giovanni Romano, Head of Fincantieri Yachts added, “Ottantacinque is the result of excellent teamwork, in which both our company and Pininfarina have demonstrated to be perfectly in tune while developing the concept. It’s a custom-built model of the sea, in line with Pininfarina’s natural vocation in creating exclusive projects, combining tradition with innovative solutions. This is how our design team conceived the collaboration with Fincantieri Yachts.”
Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Pininfarina commented, “The result is a sculptural floating home with elegant and dynamic areas, where style meets function, aerodynamics, on board comfort and ergonomics. Every detail is designed to harmonise with the aesthetic theme of the yacht.”
