Rosetti Marino Group enters yachting market with 85 metre Spadolini concept
by Chris Jefferies
Italian commercial yard Rosetti Marino Group has signalled its intention to move into the superyacht world by teaming up with Tommaso Spadolini for an 85 metre concept.
This expedition supply vessel design is described by the company’s new luxury arm Rosetti Superyachts as the first in a series that will eventually range from 48 metres to 85 metres.
Former Sanlorenzo and Ferretti executive Fulvio Dodich, who has been appointed chairman of Rosetti Superyachts, explains: “We took the decision to launch this initiative based on Rosetti Marino’s remarkable experience, solid financial background and exceptional facilities to create a series of high-level superyachts with semi-custom or fully customisable identities, as well as providing technical excellence and innovative solutions.”
This can be seen in Spadolini’s design with its aft-deck helipad accessed via a central gangway across the plentiful amidships storage area, which can hold a large tender, a sailing yacht and many more superyacht water toys besides. Rosetti Superyachts adds that the design can be tweaked to move the helideck further forward if required.
Interior space would total 2,200GT thanks to the towering four-deck superstructure, while Rolls-Royce would take care of the drivetrain.
Dodich adds that advanced negotiations are already underway with several prospective clients and further details will be revealed in the coming months.
Based on the Adriatic coast in Ravenna’s San Vitale shipyard, Rosetti Marino Group has access to a 160 metre dry dock and 4,000 square metres of mechanical workshops, including several assembly halls with overhead cranes capable of lifting more than 90 tonnes.
