First Navetta 26 launched at Filippetti Yacht
by Raphael Montigneaux
The first hull of the Navetta 26 series was launched at Filippetti Yacht in Rimini, Italy one week ago.
RINA "Green Star Yacht" classed, this pocket superyacht has been designed to respect rigorous environmental rules. "Comfort in sailing and respect for the environment" are the principles of this eco-line designed by Pietro Mingarelli.
With a length of 26m, her interior accommodates a very large master suite forward on the main deck. This area has a beautiful panoramic view on the sea, and a bathroom is located at a lower level. Six other guests can also be accommodated in three further cabins on the lower deck, two doubles and a twin. A noteable feature is that tenders and toys are stored in a large stern garage, leaving the upper deck free for a large solarium and dining area.
On the technical side, she’s powered by two C-18 Caterpillar engines developing 875hp each, allowing a top speed of 14 knots, a cruising speed of 12 knots and a range of 2,500 nautical miles at the economical speed thanks to a fuel tank capacity of 20,000 litres.
The Navetta 26 will be delivered to her owners in Spring 2011.
