The new explorer yacht Kiribati 38 by Floating Life is born

Modern with bold exterior lines, the new Kiribati 38 project is the collaboration between Floating Life, responsible for the concept and design, engineering and international sales, the CCN-Gruppo Baglietto shipyard for its construction, Zero13 studio for the naval architecture and Satura Studio for the interior and exterior design. 

The hull was thoroughly designed and tested by Andrea Pezzini, director and co-founder of Floating Life, together with Zero13 studio, to optimize fluid dynamics reducing fuel consumption at all speeds and making navigation safer and more comfortable. (Here all our posts about Floating Life)

Kiribati 38 is a true explorer yacht 

With a 5,000nm-range at 10 knots and vast storage capacity for supplies and water to enable extended periods at sea, Kiribati 38 is a true explorer yacht designed for challenging adventures and safe long-range cruising in the most pristine areas of the world even in extreme conditions.

Efficiency, robustness and incredibly large volumes

Efficiency, reliability and robustness were the focal points for the development of this project, moreover, Kiribati 38, with a length of 38.7 metres and a maximum beam of 8.50 metres, offers incredibly large volumes, as Francesco Viola by Satura Studio explains: “The most important features of this boat are the absolutely unique volumes in her category. A 38-metre with five decks and an uninterrupted lower deck layout, capable of connecting the cabins directly with the beach area. The exterior design developed around straight and pure lines, and the surfaces, by connecting with each other, give her a marine, impressive, pure and elegant character.”

The other 10 guests find accommodation on the lower deck across five comfortable and independent suites equipped with all amenities. Separate crew quarters for eight people across four cabins with a laundry room, a crew mess and a remarkably well-equipped and very functional professional galley. 

The solution adopted for the arrangement of the engines on the under lower deck allows for a lower deck layout to be arranged on one level, thus enabling the guest cabins to be located on the lower deck giving direct access to the beach platform through a gym area. 

Kiribati 38, great privacy 

The external layout offers, in addition to the beach area, five other external areas to ensure great privacy even when all 12 guests are onboard. 

The tender can be housed in a tender garage inside the gym, an ideal solution for long voyages when the tender is on board, which also allows for a large tender up to six metres in length.

Floating Life’s Charter&Brokerage division has the worldwide central agency for this project to promote and sell it on the international market with a starting price of 23 million Euros. Delivery is expected in 24 months from the start of construction entrusted to CCN, a division of the Baglietto Group.
