CCN 102 Flyingsport takes shape ahead of 2018 launch
by Chris Jefferies
As the behind-the-scenes image below reveals, this 31 metre fast planing yacht will sport a vibrant red exterior finish on both the hull and superstructure.
Construction on the sixth hull in the series began on speculation and the project was sold earlier this month to an American couple by Total Marine.
Comprised of a GRP hull and superstructure, this RINA-class yacht will offer accommodation for up to eight guests in four cabins arranged as a master suite, a VIP and two twins, while the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to three people.
Interior designer Tommaso Spadolini has worked with the yard to develop and American-style layout with a country kitchen-style galley on the main deck.
Al fresco relaxation options include a large circular foredeck seating area with sunpads forward — ideal for relaxing away from prying eyes while moored stern-to in port.
Meanwhile, the superyacht sundeck measures 28 metres square and boasts an extendable dining table, barbecue and further sunbathing space.
Power will come from a pair of 2,600hp MTU diesel engines twinned to ZF Searex surface drives for an exhilarating top speed of 40 knots and comfortable cruising at 30 knots.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 27 metre Fuoriserie yacht Freedom, which will be launched for renowned fashion designer Roberto Cavalli next summer.
