Rossinavi partners with Fiorentino for Zephyr superyacht concept

Italian yard, Rossinavi has once again teamed up with Federico Fiorentino for a new 55m all-aluminium superyacht concept called Zephyr.

For a smooth cruising experience, Van Oossanen Naval Architects was also brought into the project to develop a fast displacement XL500 platform, which stretches a 500GT interior over the maximum length possible.

According to Rossinavi, her exterior is inspired by the muscular bodywork of 1950s and 1960s sportscars, following the Milanese naval architect’s experiences in racing and powerboat design.

Pisa-based interior designers, Pulina DNA assisted with Zephyr’s interior décor. Its design focuses on transparency and reflective surfaces for a light and spacious atmosphere.

Key features of the concept include a foldout transom, which creates a 300m2 beach club, complete with a five-metre glass-sided infinity pool.

Five staterooms accommodate up to 10 guests, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of nine.

Power comes from a pair of MTU 16V4000 M93L engines for a top speed of 32 knots and comfortable cruising at 28 knots. When decreased to an economic speed of 12 knots, Zephyr would be capable of a transatlantic range of 3,400 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 50,000 litres.

A scale model of the concept is currently being exhibited on Rossinavi’s stand at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
