Italian shipyard Rosetti Superyachts has revealed the first renderings of its 40 metre Explorer project.
The project builds on the success of the 38m EXP Emocean, which has scooped a number of awards since its launch in 2021, including a coveted Neptune at the World Superyacht Awards. For the design of the 40m EXP, Rosetti Superyachts has teamed up once again with Hydro Tec to develop the exterior and naval architecture.
The 40EXP shares the same "powerful and rigorous profile" as its predecessor, according to the yard, with four decks, large windows, and outdoor and indoor spaces that are designed to interact with one another. The yacht will have a cruising range of over 5,000 nautical miles at a speed of 10 knots with considerable fuel and water tank capacities as well as galley and storage - as an explorer should - with the "exquisite elegance and taste that have never been seen before on yachts of this category," the yard said.
“The 40m EXP has allowed us to reinterpret and refine Emocean by adding features and solutions that were not possible to add on the 38m” said Sergio Cutolo, founder of Hydro Tec. Such features include a longer and flatter stern.
Unlike Emocean, which was built on speculation, a letter of intent has already been signed for the build of the 40m EXP by a South American owner with delivery scheduled for late 2023.
Luxury Living Group was called upon to create the interior design concept for the 40m EXP, which includes a natural and "restful" palette of colour that is "lit up" by touches of colour. The main saloon is a bright space with white walls, pops of acid yellow, bronze accents and Carrara marble-topped coffee tables.
In the owner's suite, the pallette becomes more muted with dove-grey materials warmed by flashes of cognac and slatted dark wood wall feature that extends to the ceiling from behind the headboard.
For the lounge on the bridge deck, the design team at Luxury Living opted for whites and Mediterranean blue, with a modular L-shaped sofa by Trussardi Casa and Dolce and Gabanna Casa armchairs.
"The collaboration with Luxury Living Group stems from our desire to present a project such as the 40m EXP in a different way, already proposing an elegant and modern furnishing solution developed with a company that has made luxury and custom-designed furniture its hallmark," said Andrea Giora, sales and marketing director of RSY.
"The 40m EXP gives us the opportunity to explore some features already glimpsed in the 38m EXP and to offer them in different solutions on the interiors as well, with customisation tips which can clearly be adjusted to the client's needs," he added.
Speaking on the new collaboration, Andrea Gentilini, CEO of Luxury Living Group, said: "It is a pleasure to collaborate with a shipyard as young and full of potential as Rosetti Superyachts, which received some important recognition awards from the nautical world this year in London and last year in Cannes."
