The model was designed by Floating Life founder Andrea Pezzini, in collaboration with Satura Studio and ZeroTredici studio, and is based on the same technical platform as the company's FL Line. The design for the Dream 42, however, has been tailored to suit a fractional ownership model; three owners have already signed on to the ownership proposal for the vessel and a further three are still in discussion.
One of the key design elements of the Dream 42 is the configuration of its exterior decks. There are six different spaces to choose from which allows for intimate spaces for guests to spread out, as well as larger areas such as the saloon and sun deck should they choose to come together. Accommodation is for 12 guests split across seven flexible cabins which makes the Dream 42 well suited for charter.
Its layout includes an "under lower deck" area which allows the engine room to be placed on an additional deck, freeing up space on the lower deck for a corridor that provides guests with direct access to the beach club. It also eases crew service by connecting the two spaces.
"We called this yacht Dream because we believe it represents the dream of any owner", said Pezzini. "Compared to Ocean Pearl and Ocean Emerald it presents many improvements regarding the use of living spaces and the guarantee of privacy, because Dream 42 is the result of continuous attention to life on board, to the needs and all those details that are part of the owners' wishes," he added.
Speaking on the new partnership, Filippo Rossi, chief commercial officer of Floating Life, said: "It is with great pride that Floating Life announces this synergy in an extremely positive moment for our company. Floating Life and CCN represent two excellences in the sector and being able to offer our customers the construction quality of this shipyard is a source of great pride for us but also a further reason to underline the attention we reserve to our shipowners in offering products and services that are always of the highest level."
The announcement was made as Floating Life celebrated its 20th anniversary in a marble quarry in Carrara. Construction is due to begin later this year.
