Italian shipyard Rosetti Superyachts has announced that it will be beginning construction on a new 40 metre explorer project for a South American owner.
Following the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI), the shipyard has revealed that the exterior design and engineering of the superyacht will be carried out by Italian firm Hydro Tec. Rosetti has previously worked with Hydro Tec on the recently-launched 38 metre EXP, Emocean.
According to Andrea Giora, sales & marketing director at Rosetti, the superyacht will have a “modern design and true explorer features” as well as “generous volumes and excellent cruising range.”
"The signing of this LOI makes us particularly proud and confirms that the Rosetti Marino Group made the right choice to enter the world of yachting and to position itself in the explorer market,” commented Rosetti chairman & CEO Ermanno Bellettini.
The shipyard has confirmed that delivery of the explorer is scheduled for October 2023. Hydro Tec co-founder Sergio Cutolo is reportedly working on the specification plans, which are already well underway.
