Nauta Yachts announces an avant-garde motoryacht project with construction to start by the end of the year.
“Innovative design, lots of open-air space, close contact with the water, light-filled and airy interiors, flexible layout and furniture solutions… These were the ‘must have’ features requested by the owner that drove the exterior styling, general arrangement and interior design,” says Mario Pedol, co-founder of Nauta Yachts in Milan.
The exterior styling reflects Nauta’s trademark preference for clean, uncluttered design devoid of fussy or superfluous detailing. Visual lightness, seamless outdoor/indoor connection and opening to the surrounding environment, predominantly horizontal lines, long overhangs and the extensive use of glass gently inclined from the vertical, highlight the balanced, low-rise proportions, while the chamfered sheer line amidships adds a dynamic aspect to the displacement hull. The end result is a graceful yet powerful profile that belies a volume of 1,450GT distributed over 5 deck levels (plus an under-lower deck).
The expansive Beach Club is a very spectacular area, where Nauta’s design philosophy is mostly visible . Its full-beam lounge with fire pit is put in direct connection with the surrounding environment through the glazed transom door and the side (port and starboard) opening terraces, also enriched by a large bar and a ‘Nemo’ window, provided with a glass that descends below the waterline.
A real innovation is the patent-pending system for part of the above mentioned walkway and the fold-down bulwarks, which can transform the sea level aft deck into 117 sq. m., 270° view spectacular terrace. Integrated into the stern platform is a sea-water swimming pool that is ideal for children or guests who seek sheltered alternatives to open-water bathing. The pool design features a hydraulic mechanism for raising the teak bottom that closes flush with the deck when the pool is not in use. Adjacent to the indoor Beach Club area, and just forward of it, a Spa and wellness areafeatures hamman, sauna, emotional shower and changing room. The upper deck is dedicated to the owner’s accommodation. A further key feature is the spectacular circular staircase wrapping the central lift which connects all decks from lower deck to sun deck. Propulsion is diesel-electric with fixed drive shafts. The package offers reduced noise and vibration along with the added flexibility and redundancy of multiple generators. Two electric motors (1500kW @1800rpm) are mounted on the drive shafts that can be powered by a combination of 5 diesel generators (3 x 1000 kWe and 2 x 500 kWe), providing a top speed of 16 knots and a range at economical speed in excess of 6,000nm.
