Construction Update on Rosetti's In-Build 38 Metre Explorer

16 July 2020By Miranda Blazeby

Rosetti Superyachts has given a construction update on its first in-build 38 metre explorer, which is progressing on schedule.

Currently under construction at Rosetti's shipyard in Ravenna, Italy, the yacht's steel and aluminium work is now complete.

Welding work is now 95% complete, piping is 70% complete, electrics is 30% complete and a quarter of the joinery work has been finished. The painting and fairing work is also underway.

Sold in December 2018, construction remains on track for delivery in summer 2021.

The yard has revealed more information about the interior design, which has been penned by BurdissoCapponi Yachts & Design. "The owners had a precise idea of what they wanted" says sales director Andrea Giora. "We want to build a really custom made boat."

The interior features various pieces of art, including a striking central staircase with a three-storey sculpture illuminated by a skylight, as well as an interplay of white lacquer, light and dark woods throughout.

Great attention has been paid to the connection between the interior and exterior, with windows and openings made as large as possible at the owner's request.

Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests in five cabins, comprising a main deck master suite and four lower deck guest cabins. The master cabin features his and hers bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, and a built-in balcony. "They [the owners] didn't want to have any complicated balconies with hydraulic systems. They just wanted a space that was outside without having to get the crew involved" says Giora.

Moving aft, the main deck has been split into a veranda style seating area offering wide sea views and a dining area. A custom 150-bottle wine cellar meanwhile acts as a divider between the guest areas and the owner's stateroom.

The hull and superstructure will be joined in February 2020

The exterior meanwhile, which comes from Sergio Cutolo's Hydro Tec, features "contemporary styling" with "tense, angular lines".

The yacht's seven metre tender will sit on the upper deck to allow room for a beach club and swim platform. It will be powered by twin MAN D2868 LE 425 engines for a cruising speed of 10 to 11 knots and top speed of 13 knots.

The yard has revealed new details about the 38 metre explorer

Formed in 2017, Rosetti Superyachts is a new arm of Rosetti Marino Group, known foremost for their construction of ocean-going supply vessels. The 38 metre explorer is the shipyard's first venture into superyachting. "Our heritage allows us to build according to great specification" says Giora. "We have a proper, solid and reliable boat on rough seas and we are very confident and familiar with the construction".

Other designs on Rosetti’s drawing board include a 48 and 85 metre support vessel designed by Tommaso Spadolini and a 52 metre supply vessel, which was unveiled earlier this year at the Monaco Yacht Show.
