Italian shipyard Rosetti Superyachts has created a new addition to the RSY range, which includes the 38-metre EXP and the 65-metre EXP Explorers. The new stylish yet rugged 55-metre Support Vessel was developed with HydroTec, the studio behind the design and naval architecture of the 38-metre Explorer currently in build.
Inspired by Rosetti Marino’s extensive experience in the construction of working vessels, capable of operating in extreme conditions, this Support Vessel is the perfect link between the shipyard’s expertise in commercial shipbuilding and the world of explorer yachts, able to cruise long distances in all kinds of sea and weather conditions.
“Our 55m Support Vessel, conceived in collaboration with HydroTec, embodies the DNA of Rosetti Marino’s experience in the naval sector, offering the market a more comfortable and refined version of a commercial vessel, but preserving at the same time the core characteristics of safety and reliability at sea,” says Ermanno Bellettini, Chairman and CEO of Rosetti Superyachts.
The 55-metre Support Vessel offers superyacht owners a shadow vessel that can house extra crew and staff, essential for providing impeccable on-board service on the main ship. Thanks to the vast 224 sqm open deck, there is ample space to accommodate a range of toys and tenders, submarines, a helicopter and containers for cargo and provisions.
A steel hull with low hydrodynamic resistance, an aluminium superstructure and balanced weight distribution all provide for minimised motion and increased comfort under way.
“With a top speed of 22 knots, thanks to two 2,600 HP engines, this Support Vessel is fast enough to reach destinations ahead of the mothership so that all the tenders and toys can be unloaded and ready for the guests on arrival,” adds Andrea Giora, Sales & Marketing Director of Rosetti Superyachts.
Should the owner and guests choose to spend time on board, the main deck can be equipped with a comfortable salon, galley, the owner’s suite and 3 double cabins, while the lower deck can host up to 7 cabins for the crew. Naturally, the interior design can be completed to the owner’s specifications depending on personal preference and the primary purpose of the vessel.
