[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he new 40m M/Y Panam represents the CCN’s fifth Fuoriserie motor yacht; the yachts was ordered last September by a European owner, and the construction is continuing well on schedule, with a delivery date planned for summer 2020. The approx. 340 gross ton superyacht – designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, in charge of both exteriors and interiors, the latter in cooperation with architect Margherita Casprini – was moved some weeks ago inside the shed for outfitting activities.
Following completion of the hull and the superstructure, as well as of the decks interior layout, the installation of hydraulic and electrical systems, insulation, and activities on the guest areas and crew quarters on the lower deck have now started.
This slender and aggressive yacht is going to stand out for her impressive performances, ensured by the light aluminium alloy hull and by the three MTU 16V200 M96L engines – installed last month – that will push her to a maximum speed of 31 knots.
Activities are also ongoing for the construction of the 4 hull doors – one of which for the semifloat-in garage that will host a 17’ tender – and on the beach area, open on 3 sides and fitted with a convenient automatic ladder allowing to easily step down into the water.
Works have also already been completed on system and structural elements of the bow thruster and the stabilizing fins. The straight bow endows this yacht with a sinuous and yet modern, dynamic and powerful look, further enhanced by the large irregular-shape windows that let plenty of natural light into the interior salons.
The layout features a large salon on the main deck, divided from the dining area by a “green” wall. Forward, the full-beam master suite is fitted with a walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom with Hammam. Two wide electrically-controlled windows open up on the sides offering a wonderful panoramic sea view. Four guest cabins are located on the lower deck, which also hosts the professional galley. On this same deck, forward, are the captain’s cabin, 2 double cabins, the laundry, and the crew mess. The 65 sq. m flybridge features a large aft custom-made pool with counter current swimming system, while a sunbathing area can be found at the bow.
