Pichiotti teams up with Nauta Design for PY50 concept
by Chris Jefferies
Italian studio Nauta Design has styled its first motor yacht for Pichiotti, the 50 metre PY50 concept. The new design features modern-classic exteriors, all-aluminium construction and a total interior volume of less than 500GT.
In a statement, the La Spezia-based yard explained: “The brief was to create a series of graceful world cruisers with styling that recalls the fleet of Perini Navi yachts.”
Nauta Design drew on its strong experience in styling sailing yachts to create a motor yacht that makes the best possible use of all available spaces, including numerous areas where the interior flows seamlessly into the exterior.
Key features on this tri-deck motor yacht include a large bathing platform for easy access to the sea. From there, twin staircases lead up to aft-deck superyacht spa pool and adjacent sunbathing area. A sheltered C-shaped wrap of seating provides further relaxation options.
On the upper deck there is enough room for 12 to enjoy an al fresco meal around a large dining table, while the superyacht sundeck includes a central table surrounded by nine freestanding chairs and further sunloungers and sunpads.
The walk-through foredeck seating area completes the array of exterior lounging spaces on board the Pichiotti PY50. Further details are being kept under wraps for now, but the initial renderings show a hatch cut into the blue topsides, hinting at a side-loading tender garage.
The PY50 is the second superyacht concept that Nauta Design has revealed in recent weeks, following hot on the heels of the 102 metre Oceanco Project Spectrum.
