Italian shipyard Rosetti Superyachts has added a new 55 metre support vessel model to its RSY range of explorer yachts.
The new model has been developed by HydroTec, which also penned the in-build 38 metre EXP explorer yacht. The third model in the range is the 65 metre EXP.
The builder said the new model would draw on the experience of parent company Rosetti Marino Group’s experience in constructing working vessels, describing it as “the perfect link between the shipyard’s expertise in commercial shipbuilding and the world of explorer yachts”.
Key features include a steel hull with low hydrodynamic resistance, aluminium superstructure and balanced weight distribution for increased comfort under way.
Built to operate in extreme conditions, the Support Vessel offers additional accommodation for crew and staff away from the mothership. The vessel can also be used to store additional toys, tenders, submarines and helicopters thanks to the 224 square metre open deck.
Below deck, the model features a main deck saloon, galley, owner’s suite and three double cabins. The lower deck meanwhile can host up to seven crew cabins. The interior design can be completed to the owner’s specifications depending on personal preference.
Chairman and chief executive of Rosetti Superyachts, Ermanno Bellettini, described the new model as embodying “the DNA of Rosetti Marino’s experience in the naval sector, offering the market a more comfortable and refined version of a commercial vessel, whilst preserving the core characteristics of safety and reliability at sea.”
Power will come from two 2,600HP engines for a top speed of 22 knots.
“This support vessel is fast enough to reach destinations ahead of the mothership so that all the tenders and toys can be unloaded and ready for the guests on arrival,” added sales and marketing director Andrea Giora.
