New yacht builder launches “Multispace” at Boot Düsseldorf

Italian manufacturer of “multispace yachts” – known as Cetera Yachts – has launched this week at Boot Düsseldorf.

The up-and-coming yard announced that fabrication is already underway on the first 18.28-metre (60-foot) yacht in its range, with plans for both a larger and a smaller version of the vessel also being devised.

The Cetera brand revolves around the idea of providing smaller yachts with a similar feel to superyachts, creating various bright, relaxing living spaces on board.

Yacht designer Francesco Guida, fibreglass yard Fiart Mare, previous Dufour Yachts shareholder Salvatore Serio and Paolo Francia are all founders of the company.

Guida this week challenged the placing of owner and guest cabins, where it is dark and close to the engines, below deck at Boot Dusseldorf boat show. He said, “Why pay a lot of money to live in the basement? We created two levels, one on the main deck and one on the lower deck, like on a big yacht.”

A two-metre (seven-foot) high master, double and twin cabin are all placed on the main deck, while the lower deck is designated to storage and technical spaces.

Toward the front of the yacht is a bright saloon leading on to a spacious foredeck lounge. The upper saloon sits above, with a galley and seating for up to eight guests, as well as a secluded sofa seating area on a bridge at the front of the vessel.

She also features a bow lounge and an aft deck, which is built above the swim platform. With the engine being accessible from the aft deck, the crew cabins lie far from the engines and can be accessed from the bow lounge.

Cetera believes the new design will require lower production costs and shorter delivery times.

Ernesto de Bartolomeis, general manager of the Fiat Mare, stated, “We think the build time will be really short because we have the possibility to work on three different positions.”

He added, “It would be very easy to have a hybrid version of the boat because we have the space for batteries. It will be only the 60-footer (18-metres) on the market that could do this.”

Power aboard the first hull will come from Volvo Penta IPS 600hp engines for an impressive top speed of 23 knots. 850hp engines allowing for a top speed of 28 knots is being considered as an option for future builds.
