Cosmo Explorer I Nova now for sale with IYC
by Malcolm MacLean
The 49.8 metre motor yacht I Nova has changed central agencies and is now listed for sale by Kevin Bonnie and Filip Jerolimov at IYC.
Built by Greek yard Cosmo Explorer, she was delivered in 2013 with stunning interior design and exterior lines by Cristiano Gatto and went on to become a 2014 ShowBoats Design Awards winner for Best Interior.
ABS classed and MCA compliant, she accommodates up to 14 guests in six cabins consisting of a master suite arranged over two decks, two doubles and two twins, all with Pullman berths and all with full en suite bathroom facilities.
A true explorer yacht, she is extremely seaworthy with an ice-classed hull, able to visit all corners of the globe without any compromise on comfort or style. With a range of 5500 nautical miles at 12 knots she is capable of undertaking long-range passages.
Cristiano Gatto took a nonconformist approach to the interior styling of this yacht for sale. His inventive use of diverse materials from 30,000-year-old kauri wood to woven bamboo panels, plus glass, metal and leather work well in terms of contrasting both their textures and their far-flung origins. In respect of the long passages and remote destinations the yacht is destined for, the interior is comfortable, calm and relaxing but with a fair amount of intrigue and visual stimulation brought forth in overheads and lighting.
Other features include an observation deck with gym equipment and a Jacuzzi.
Twin 1,050hp MTU engines give her a cruising speed of 13 knots.
I Nova is asking €26,950,000.
