Floating Life is delighted to announce the launch of “Series K” that includes the last two projects commissioned by Floating Life’s direct clients.
Series K yachts, from 36 mt up, are a different yachting concept, based on the peculiar design and performance of a steel hull. Floating Life commissioned a series of hulls to be tested, thanks to a fluid dynamics program and trials with different speeds in ship tank. The result is a hull that provides the perfect arrangement to offer max speed for a long-range yacht. This new concept is very appealing for a new generation of owners who wants to discover a new way of sailing,, more quiet, more esplorative, and respectful of nature.
K42 was born out of the partnership between Studio Sculli and Floating Life, and belongs to Series K. Her interiors and exteriors are semi-customized, based on the owner’s wishes.
K42 is a 4-deck yacht with a beam of 9.20 meters, a big beach club in the lower deck, a very spaciosu external area on main deck able to accomodate a 10mt tender during the long crosses, and, at the top, an exclusive owner’s deck composed of master stateroom, a big owner’s saloon and a private Jacuzzi. The hull, as for K40, will be strengthened to obtain the “Light Ice”class.
K 42 is conceived and developed to be a true explorer boat, sailing safely all around the world. She will be built with high-standard finishings. Building on a well-tested hull, each prospect client will be able to choose a full/semi-customizable superstructure, layout and decoration.
The shipyard will be chosen among the top builders in the world, considering the owner’s needs and other important criteria.
