First pictures: 27m custom yacht Freedom in build at CCN

Italian yard Cerri Cantieri Navali has released the first in-build pictures of its 27 metre custom motor yacht project Freedom, which has been commissioned by fashion designer Roberto Cavalli.

Sold in an in-house deal back in May 2017, this Fuoriserie yacht will be built from aluminium and delivered in summer 2018. As the images below show, the yard has made quick progress — the hull is largely complete, the superstructure has been fitted and the propulsion system is taking shape.

Cavalli's friend and fellow designer Tommaso Spadolini will take care of interior and exterior styling. The brief called for a strong exterior profile to reflect the owner’s strong personality. The yard has also been challenged with maximising contact with the sea while ensuring that privacy is not compromised.

Speaking last year, yard CEO Diego Michele Deprati, said, “It is a great honour for me to be able to build a yacht that will truly stand out for its great personality and unique features. The Fuoriserie philosophy is undoubtedly bound to become the distinguishing feature of our shipyard.”

Accommodation is for six guests split between a full-beam main deck owner’s cabin, situated just behind the helm station, and two staterooms below decks, adjacent to the crew quarters. Other key features include an upper deck helm station and a large cockpit with concealing curtains.

Power will come from a triple waterjet drivetrain that will give this 27 metre fast-planing yacht a sporty top speed of 40 knots, while the foredeck will provide tender storage.

Other custom projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the latest 102 Flyingsport yacht, which is also due to launch this summer.
