Zuccon designs new dual-purpose motor yacht for Picchiotti

Zuccon International Project has designed a new 45m motor yacht for Picchiotti Yachts, in the style of a classic expedition yacht or support vessel.

The PY Heritage Project pays tribute to Gerhard Gilgenast; one of the most famed architects to have worked with Picchiotti in the past. She mixes the classical styles of Perini Navi and Picchiotti with the modern-day capabilities of yachts, in terms of storage and on-board autonomy.

Outdoor areas share the same dual-purpose abilities as the yacht itself, with the foredeck doubling as a tender storage area for her 9m motor and sailing yachts, and acting as a large family deck when her tenders are in the water.

Her interior is extremely spacious, with floor-to-ceiling heights of up to three metres. The owner’s suite is located on the lower deck, along with her other guest accommodation, with her master cabin leading out on to a sea-level terrace for the owner’s use.

Bernardo Zuccon, architect at Zuccon International Project said, “Setting out along this path is a source of pride for our firm, particularly as we are doing so with a project that is both experimental and extremely fascinating, as well as one that wants to pay tribute to an architect that has made an important contribution to Picchiotti Yachts over the years.”
