  1. Rossi Navi pre-launches 48-meter "Vellmari" megayacht

    Italian yard Rossi Navi rolled out their first yacht for 2013. She isn't fully launched as yet, she will take to the water next week. She is the 48-meter Enrico Gobbi-designed "Vellmari". She was built under project name 'Ketos' as hull-number FR026 at their Viareggio yard. The vessel is powered by twin MTU 16V 2000 M94 engines, with 2,600 BHP each. This choice was not based on a desire to reach high speeds, a maximum of 17.5-knots, but to offer maximum cruising comfort. The Humphree interceptors were chosen to provide the best cruising performance.

    Ketos summarizes elegance and aggressiveness: the first is expressed by the lean exterior lines and the sleek, racy style of its volumes, while the second is provided by the numerous more risqué details, reminiscent of the world of aeronautics and car design. The original windows in the bow, which distinguish the Ketos line, are veritable cuts longer than two meters that start from the deck and move up to the ceiling, which continue horizontally in the ceiling liner, enhancing the interior space and offering a wonderful and unique view of the sea from the owner's suite. The architect, Enrico Gobbi from T4D, meticulously designed every single interior and exterior detail, with a particular emphasis on the lighting design which is the hallmark of this motor yacht. Crystal, precious glass and Murano handcrafts complete the luxurious guest accommodations.

    One exterior area deserving of mention is the sky lounge, featuring electrical systems for opening both the roof and the side windows, while a jacuzzi was designed in the stern that, thanks to the circular window closing systems, allows the pool to face both outside and inside the bridge ensuring total privacy. The entertainment and domotics systems were chosen from the most innovative on the market, for maximizing comfort and easily managing the on-board environment with customized solutions specially designed for the client. In addition to 7 crew members, the motor yacht sleeps 10 guests.
