Rossinavi launches the custom designed yacht Vector / MY Utopia IV (FR031) on 10th of March in Pisa. The project has been commissioned by a private American client. With exterior and interiors by Venice-based Enrico Gobbi of Team4Design, the dynamic silhouette of Vector has been inspired by contemporary automotive design, with its sharp lines and low profile on the water; reminiscent of a speedboat.
With a fast displacement hull, Vector is light, fast and powerful. Fitted with four light Rolls Royce engines as well as four hydro jets, this intelligent and unique combination of power means that the yacht can travel as efficiently at low speeds as it can at high speeds with a top speed of 28 knots and an average cruising speed of 15 knots. Impressively, Vector can easily reach a cruising speed of 18 knots using a mere 35% of propulsion power. Designed to be versatile, Vector is as at home cruising the Caribbean and Mediterranean as it is sailing along the coast of Florida.
“We wanted it to feel like a speedboat, with a minimum draft, efficient in its range of navigation, with an intelligent propulsion and completely tailor-made. At the beginning of the design process, we had to consider the relationship between the engine horsepower necessary to achieve certain speeds, and its weight… The overall balance is a particular feature of this boat, an interesting idea which makes
Vector unique.” Federico Rossi, COO of Rossinavi
Inside, Vector has been optimised for comfort and style. Continuing the long lines of the exterior design, the interior is sleek and wide, with the capacity to sleep 12 across six spacious cabins. The forward facing and luxurious owner’s suite features a six meter fixed length balcony and floor to ceiling glass windows that frame a 180-degree panoramic view. The master suite also includes a grand bathroom with wood panelling and marble that boasts a double-shower and Jacuzzi bath.
Inside the main salon, Vector’s lounge has two four-meter sliding glass doors that open onto the deck and shroud the interiors in natural light throughout the day. A rich wood-panelled partition wall separates the main living and dining spaces, while the main bar at the rear of the yacht opens directly onto the main deck for entertaining.
On deck, the yacht is designed for entertaining with a number of lounge and recreation areas including three swimming pools, the largest of which sits on the main deck alongside a sun deck and sprawling outdoor lounge. Enrico Gobbi has also designed Vector’s impressive 70 square meter beach club space at the rear of the yacht which opens directly on sea level. There is also a design option for a “touch-and-go” helipad, achieved by lengthening the fly deck but without jeopardising the clean lines of the yacht’s design, which when not in use becomes a wide space for relaxing and entertaining.
