Italian yard Cerri Cantieri Navali has announced that it has taken an order for a 31 metre custom motor yacht that is due to launch in 2019.
Signed at the end of 2017 by a European client, this all-aluminium project will be part of the yard’s Fuoriserie collection, which already includes the 49.9 metre Elsea and the 27 metre Freedom.
Unlike the previous projects, the new 31 metre features interior and exterior styling by Guido De Groot Design, while Ginton Naval Architects is in charge of developing the displacement hull.
The classical exterior lines belie the level of technological sophistication on board, the yard adds, with a great emphasis placed on sustainability and efficiency.
For example, the propulsion system combines both diesel engines and electric motors to offer speeds of up to 12.5 knots and comfortable cruising at eight knots. The stabilisation system is equally sophisticated, with both gyroscopes and fin stabilisers working to ensure a smooth cruising experience.
All of the accommodation is situated below decks with a master suite and two guest cabins. On the main deck, the layout will comprise an L-shaped lounge, dining area and an open-plan galley behind the superyacht wheelhouse.
Al fresco relaxation is primarily offered on the upper deck, with sun loungers, a bar and a dining area, while the aft swimming platform allows a 5.5 metre tender to be carried.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the yard include the 50 metre Project Lysithea — an Andrea Bacigalupo design based on the same hull form as Elsea.
