The second unit – closely following the Series K production philosophy, for which Floating Life is the only proprietor, has been assigned to the Studio Sculli of Sarzana (La Spezia) as naval architecture and design. The Studio successfully designed the first Series K yacht (the K-40m) and boasts a twenty-year proven association with Floating Life, sharing the same ideas, tastes, and objectives.
Created, designed and built according to the “explorer” concept to ensure safe and secure voyages in remote areas and extreme latitudes, M/Y K-42, like her predecessor, will be a semicustom design built with very high quality materials and finishing to satisfy the client’s needs. Based on a tried and proven platform, every potential Series K client can choose his superstructure – the various interior and exterior lay outs, finishing and décor, according to his own personal taste.
Strictly respecting the production philosophy that Floating Life is developing for this Series, the industrial platform (hull) of the Series K, which includes the K-42 and the K-40, was created using a sophisticated fluid dynamics program and tank-tested in the Göteborg (SSPA) facilities, confirming the correct design criteria.
The shipyard is still to be chosen: following the same process used for the first yacht, assigned to Cerri Cantieri Navali, the yard will be chosen by Andrea Pezzini, CEO of Floating Life and project manager for the new build, by means of a notice of tender inviting the world’s best international yards to compete
