Mariotti superyacht Rahil debuts at the Monaco Yacht Show
by Raphael Montigneaux
Spotted by our journalists during the latest Genoa Charter Show, the superyacht Rahil is displayed for the first time at the current Monaco Yacht Show.
Rahil is the second 53.8 metre motor yacht delivered by Mariotti Yachts. Designed by Luca Dini, she's very similar to her sistership, Sea Force One, launched in 2008.
This visit at the Monaco Yacht Show was an opportunity to discover the interior of the yacht, also designed by Luca Dini. With a classic decoration at the opposite of Sea Force One, Rahil accommodates 12 guests in a full-beam master on the main deck with two side balconies, a VIP on the bridge deck (this place was a gymnasium on Sea Force One), two further VIPs and two doubles on the lower deck. Due to an agreement with the owner, it is impossible to publish any pictures of the interior.
ABS classed, RINA Comfort classed and MCA compliant, Rahil was built in steel and aluminium with all engineering done by the yard. Her twin 2,720hp Caterpillar engines give a top speed of 17.5 knots, a cruising speed of 14 knots and a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.
The visit to Rahil was also the opportunity for the yard to confirm that they have no current projects under construction. Their policy is to wait for an order before starting a new construction. They added that they are ready for an order, having all the infrastructure available to deliver a superyacht on time and on budget.
