Italian yacht builder Emys has revealed it is working on plans for a 35m motor yacht based on its 22m to 31m models, which are themselves designed to larger superyacht standards of safety and quality.
The start-up has been asked to design the bigger yacht in the style of the range it already offers – 31m, 26m and 22m, one of which is in build at its Pisa yard, with delivery expected this year. The 35m will feature a diesel-electric hybrid engine and an azimuth propulsion thruster.
Matteo Zanoni, founder of Emys, has 25 years of experience as a captain, owner's representative and after-sales consultant and has brought an insistence on heavy duty, sturdy mechanics to Emys. The company prides itself on the security, reliability and comfort of its designs, all based on the same style of high-strength steel displacement hull.
‘Security is offered by the hull,’ says Zanoni. ‘Comfort is ensured by high acoustic insulation and a stabilisation system in navigation and when at anchor. These were highly effective when studied in a test tank.’
All the yachts offer an Atlantic range - even the 22m has a 23,000 litre diesel tank. They are designed with Malta Cross certified hulls, and are classified as Rina Class, Green Star Plus and Comfort Class. Emys want to retain the family look of the exteriors, but with exception structural bulkheads, interiors are entirely customisable to clients’ wishes.
