Picchiotti Yachts teams up with Zuccon for 45m Heritage

Picchiotti Yachts teams up with Zuccon for 45m Heritage

Zuccon International Project has joined forced with Picchiotti Yachts for the first time to create the new 45.4 metre project Heritage.

Described by the yard as a dual function motor yacht, Heritage can serve as a superyacht support vessel or a stand-alone explorer yacht.

The studio explained that the exterior design of this steel and aluminium yacht is a deliberate nod to the late Gerhard Gilgenast, who worked with Picchiotti on several yachts, including the yard’s 1988 launch T.M. Blue One.

Architect Bernardo Zuccon added: “Picchiotti has written an important chapter in yachting history, both in Italy and worldwide. Setting out along this path is a source of pride, particularly as we are doing so with a project that is both experimental and extremely fascinating, as well as paying tribute to an architect who has made an important contribution to Picchiotti Yachts over the years.”

This tribute can be seen, not just in the project name, but also in the classic lines and traditional design language. Innovative features include the extensive tender storage space, with room for a nine-metre sailing boat, two Jet Skis and a multi-purpose tender on the foredeck.

Moving inside and Zuccon has created a light-filled main saloon, which sports floor-to-ceiling windows, making the most of the three metre headroom. The guest accommodation is all situated below decks, including the owner’s cabin, which benefits from its own private superyacht terrace.

The engine installation and maximum cruising speed have yet to be disclosed, but the yard revealed that Heritage would have a maximum beam of 9.2 metres and a draught of 3.65 metres.

Other projects currently under development at Picchiotti Yachts include a 52 metre steel and aluminium superyacht, which was recently sold and is due for delivery in late 2019.
