Industry news

By Katia Damborsky  15 June 2020

In a private launch ceremony held at Rossinavi's Pisa facilities on the west coast of Italy today, the 52m / 171ft motor yacht FLORENTIA hit the water for the first time.

It's been a busy period for Italian shipyard Rossinavi, with the launch of motor yacht EIV just last week and the launch of FLORENTIA today. 

The full-displacement Custom superyacht is built with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.

Exterior design comes courtesy of Giorgio & Stefano Vafiadis, while Carlo Colombo and the A++ Design studio have collaborated on the luxury yacht's interior styling.

Stefano Vafiadis of Studio Vafiadis commented: "Florentia is the most representative example of a fully bespoke superyacht made in Italy."

"This is a boat entirely designed and built around the owner and his needs. We’ve been challenged with the difficult brief to create a timeless gem where classic features and shapes meet modern details.”

On-board highlights of the motor yacht include a generous jacuzzi and a central staircase which has been described as the 'beating heart' of the yacht. It blends together a warm color palette, leather material and blonde wood.

Carlo Colombo of A++ Studio comments; "The soft lines of the boat’s architecture style pervade the space complementing neutral colours and precious materials contributing to a unique and refined yacht for a peaceful and relaxing experience."

 "[Her interior design is] inspired by the shapes of nature and ocean waves combined with technology and continuous research of design functionality." 

Florentia is a vessel in which functionality and efficiency are a testament to style.

Accommodation is for a total of 12 guests, which includes a master cabin located forward of the main deck. It benefits from a private balcony, two walk-in wardrobes a striking ring-shaped mirror art piece that refracts light in different directions. 

A VIP suite is situated on the fly deck, complete with a balcony at the bow and access to the outdoor jacuzzi to the aft. Two double guest bedrooms sit on the lower deck alongside the crew quarters.

The 800 GT yacht was sold back in October 2017. It is not yet known whether she will become available for superyacht charters.
