Rossinavi Launches 52 Metre Yacht Florentia
by Miranda Blazeby
Built from a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, the full displacement, custom yacht was sold in October 2017.
Rossinavi chief operating officer Federico Rossi described Florentia as "a yacht characterised by romantic lines for a timeless elegance that features refined interiors and generous spaces."
Exterior design comes courtesy of Giorgio & Stefano Vafiadis, while Carlo Colombo and the A++ Design studio created the interior styling.
The exterior lines have been described as “elegant and sinuous” by the yard with a number of alfresco entertainment areas.
Stefano Vafiadis of Studio Vafiadis said: "This is a boat entirely designed and built around the owner and his needs. We’ve been challenged with the difficult brief to create a timeless gem where classic features and shapes meet modern details.”
Accommodation is for up to 12 guests spread out across a spacious 800GT interior. The master cabin sits forward of the main deck and is equipped with a private balcony and two walk-in wardrobes. The cabin also features a striking ring-shaped mirror artwork above the bed to reflect light in all directions.
Elsewhere, a VIP suite can be found on the fly deck, complete with a balcony at the bow and access to the outdoor jacuzzi at the stern. Two double guest bedrooms sit on the lower deck alongside the crew quarters, which comprises a kitchen, living room, laundry and five twin rooms for a crew of 11.
The main deck superyacht staircase is a key part of the interior design. Described as "the beating heart" of the boat, the staircase brings together warm colours, leather and light wood.
Carlo Colombo said Florentia's interior design is "inspired by the shapes of nature and ocean waves combined with technology and continuous research of design functionality."
He added: "The soft lines of the boat’s architecture style pervade the space complementing neutral colours and precious materials contributing to a unique and refined yacht for a peaceful and relaxing experience."
Powered by twin Cat 3512E 1,800 rpm engines, Florentia has a top speed of 15 knots and cruising speed of 13.5 knots. The yacht will have a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots.
