Designed with global expedition in mind, the ice-classed explorer yacht boasts a strong exterior profile helmed by architect and yacht designer Gian Paolo Nari. Fitted with diesel-electric propulsion for smooth cruising during long periods of time at sea, this feature helps optimise fuel consumption and creates a low impact on the environment.
Ancona-based design team FM Architettura is responsible for her interiors which have been described by the shipyard as “cosy yet elegant.” The team worked closely with the owner to create “A real ship, a combination of elements that led to an original result: a strong but elegant vessel that fits perfectly with our view of modern yachting” said Francesca Muzio, founder of FM Architettura.

Key features onboard explorer yacht AKULA include her forward maneuvering station below deck and her open-air observation lounge on the bow. Elsewhere, her sundeck has been configured as a technical area and houses her emergency generator.
The 1,215GT is also able to store a pair of custom-built nine-meter tenders, diving equipment and two containers that can be used as transportable science labs.
Currently the fifth largest yacht to be constructed by Rossinavi, superyacht AKULA’s launch comes shortly after the launch of 50m (163ft) yacht NO STRESS, the first hybrid and AI-equipped superyacht to be launched by Rossinavi.
