  1. Construction Begins On UP40 Crossover By Antonini Navi
    Work has started in earnest on the UP40 from yacht builder Antonini Navi. The yard has a range called the UP40 which means Utility Platform 40. It is basically one 40-meter steel hull which the owner can choose three superstructure styles optimized as either an Explorer, Motor Yacht and in this case, Crossover. The first hull to go under construction, the Crossover variant is being started on spec with the aim of finding an as the build progresses. The design is by Fulvio di Simoni naturally in concert with the yard's engineering team.
  2. Delivery of this new yacht is anticipated to be available for 2022. The concept for the UP40 is interesting and as a result of just utilizing one hull design they can even start construction on a vessel even before an owner comes onboard to choose the superstructure style and arrangement for the particular variant. The yacht provides alot of deck space to the guests and there is no visible tender storage on deck. This is because the tender garage is in the transom large enough for a 7-meter guest tender. A smaller 4-meter crew tender can be stored in a locker under the foredeck just aft of the dip pool.
  3. The interior is also left to the owner for their own stamp of individualistic flair. Customization with regard to the number of cabins and decor choices will be left to the owners choice. According to renderings it appears there are five and six cabin options. The aft two mirror-image double cabins in the hull can also be configured as a full beam double/VIP. The Crossover will be a long range rover for her size too. At slower conservative speeds this yacht is touted to make a 5,000 nautical miles on a tank of fuel -that's at a continuous 10-knots though-. Top end is estimated to be 14-knots and cruising at 12-knots. Special features that can be seen on the Crossover model include a dip pool located on the bow, sizable foredeck with ample space for sun loungers, a massive sundeck partially covered by a hardtop (hardtop lined with photovoltaic cells). A long aft overhang not only provides even more lounging real estate for guests but also provides maximum shading and protection for the aft main deck. There is an aft terrace on the stern too providing more options for lazing by the water's edge.
