New maxi yacht design division at Zuccon
by Malcolm MacLean
Zuccon International Project has created an in-house team dedicated to research and development in the field of maxi-yacht designs.
Founded in Rome in 1972 by the architects Gianni Zuccon and his wife Paola, the team began by designing the 46m Al Fahedi, built in steel and aluminium by Baglietto. Currently in build is an 80 metre motor yacht at Italy's CRN yard, the largest yacht yet designed by Zuccon, as well as a 58m motor yacht.
According to Gianni Zuccon, the new division is the result of "steadily growing demand for maxi yacht projects and ideas."
