Radical NEW Fincantieri "Marco Polo"
An EPIC New Yacht!
Benetti yachts, in conjunction with Fincantieri Yachts, has embarked on a radical new design by Camillo Costantini. A dramatic departure in design, the new Marco Polo is slightly gothic, totally epic... and destined to become a topic of design discussion for years to come. Marco Polo is a contrasting mix of modern and retro elements. Among the more distinguishing features are the enclosed aft atrium and the 1930’s, bull-nose bow. At the same time, the round windows along the superstructure are reminiscent of an ancient cruise liner, yet the brush-stroke hull windows take today's offerings to a new level.
Costantini, who attended the University of Rome faculty of architecture, went on to become the art director for a notable design office in Rome, where he oversaw the styling and interior design of several mega yachts, including Lady Moura. After receiving a clear brief, Costantini set about interpreting a profile that synthesizes Fincantieri's long history and company versatility. Marco Polo represented a dream for Costantini; to work with such prestigious companies as Benetti and Fincantieri. What made the project more compelling was the opportunity to create something truly unique without the constraints of an owner's predisposed ideas.
