[dropcap]R[/dropcap]ossinavi launched the custom designed yacht Vector 50 / M/Y Utopia IV, commissioned by a private American client. The sale of the vessel, signed during Miami International Boat Show was made in collaboration with Mr. Dean Anthony, Senior Sales Executive of Allied Marine Superyacht Divisions introducing the buyer.
Vector 50 incorporates technical advancements including a shallow hull and stability that allows it to cruise in Caribbean waters and interior areas of South Florida waters.
This yacht project is a fusion of Rossinavi know-how, Italian design plus technological and mechanical components from the United States. The electrical system is US standard since the vessel will be based in US and Caribbean waters. The attention to US standards is also applied to its ergonomic function and elegant interiors, a response to the clients’ desire and the growing interest in Rossinavi from the American market.
With a tri deck, large salons, an elegant master suite and floor to ceiling sliding glass windows for the guests on board to enjoy a panoramic view, Vector 50 is a fast and light boat with excellent stability to cruise the sea of the Bahamas as well as to sail in the Miami lagoon because of its draft.
With exterior and interiors by Venice-based Enrico Gobbi of Team for Design, the dynamic silhouette of Vector has been inspired by contemporary automotive design, with its sharp lines and low profile on the water; reminiscent of a speedboat. Vector 50 is the third vessel sold by Rossinavi to an American client since 2011 and is a testament of the brand’s international reach and commitment to bespoke craftsmanship even for new markets.
With a fast displacement hull, Vector is light, fast and powerful. Fitted with four light Rolls-Royce engines as well as four hydro jets, this intelligent and unique combination of power means that the yacht can travel as efficiently at low speeds. Designed to be versatile, Vector is as at home cruising the Caribbean and Mediterranean as it is sailing along the coast of Florida.
Federico Rossi, COO of Rossinavi, said:
“We wanted it to feel like a speedboat, with a minimum draft, efficient in its range of navigation, with an intelligent propulsion and completely tailor-made. At the beginning of the design process, we had to consider the relationship between the engine horsepower necessary to achieve certain speeds, and its weight… The overall balance is a particular feature of this boat, an interesting idea which makes Vector unique.”
Inside, Vector has been optimised for comfort and style, the interior is sleek and wide, with the capacity to sleep 12 across six spacious cabins. The forward facing and luxurious owner’s suite features a six meter fixed length balcony and floor to ceiling glass windows that frame a 180-degree panoramic view. The master suite also includes a grand bathroom with wood panelling and marble that boasts a double-shower and Jacuzzi bath.
Inside the main salon, Vector’s lounge has two four-meter sliding glass doors that open onto the deck and shroud the interiors in natural light throughout the day. A rich wood-panelled partition wall separates the main living and dining spaces, while the main bar at the rear of the yacht opens directly onto the main deck for entertaining.
On deck three swimming pools, the largest of which sits on the main deck alongside a sun deck and sprawling outdoor lounge.
Enrico Gobbi has also designed Vector’s impressive 70 square meter beach club space at the rear of the yacht which opens directly on sea level. There is also a design option for a “touch- and-go” helipad, achieved by lengthening the fly deck but without jeopardising the clean lines of the yacht’s design, which when not in use becomes a wide space for relaxing and entertaining.
