Italian shipyard Rossinavi has presented mid January its latest superyacht, Polaris, a 70-metre vessel, the largest built by the yard and able to navigate in extreme ice conditions, including the polar areas. Commissioned by a private client and previously known as Project King Shark, Polaris is a 1,542GT motor yacht able to move from the warm waters of the Caribbean to the sub-zero conditions. Interior and exterior design is penned by Enrico Gobbi – Team for Design.
Key design specifications include: owner’s deck with a private terrace crowned by a surrounding waterfall, which gives zen vibes; 6m-long infinity pool located aft on the main deck, equipped with a whirlpool system. Ample storage space that can accommodate up to six jet skis and two tenders, including a 10m full-custom limousine tender in-house built by Rossinavi. Indoor waterfall that flows over a back-lighted onyx wall in the main salon. Soundproof cinema room in the main deck surrounded by wall dividers covered with precious crystal staves. Wellness centre, which includes a fully equipped gym, a sauna, a hammam, a massage room and yoga area.
“The neat and elegant shapes of the yacht are underlined by long, continuous black window surfaces with curved details that soften up and characterise the overall cleanness of the superstructure. Our aim here was to open up the interiors towards the exterior, ensuring an ongoing view of the sea through the decks. This was achieved not by creating huge invasive openings but by instead designing refined, long and slender windows with which we were able to achieve the same goal,” says Enrico Gobbi of Enrico Gobbi – Team for Design.
The interior design, developed in collaboration with Carlo Lionetti, co-director of Team for Design, is contemporary and enriched by eclectic hints inspired by the client’s personal taste, which include precious coating materials that characterise all areas, along with refined details and prestigious textiles bestowing on the whole interior a luxurious and distinctive, yet warm and welcoming, atmosphere.
