Rosetti Superyachts Reveals 65m Orca Explorer Concept

Italian shipyard Rosetti Superyachts has unveiled a 65 metre ice-classed explorer concept named Project Orca.

Inspired by the killer whale, Project Orca features a “robust” profile with “bold superstructure styling” and a radar mast intended to resemble a dorsal fin.

“The organic design traits mimic the orca, the largest and most powerful member of the dolphin family,” chief executive of Rosetti Superyachts Fulvio Dodich said.

“Instantly recognisable by their distinctive black-and-white colouring, these sea mammals roam the world’s oceans from the Arctic and Antarctic to the tropics, which is exactly what our explorer yacht is designed to do.”

The exterior design, which was penned by Meccano Engineering, combines curved and straight lines with Rosetti's supply vessel characteristics. Meanwhile a 12 metre beam and interior volume of 1300GT provide stability and comfort at sea.

Project Orca can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins, comprising an owner's suite, a full beam VIP on the main deck, with two VIPs and two cabins below. The dedicated owner’s deck offers his and hers en suite bathrooms, a walk-in wardrobe, gym and large private terrace with views of the open aft deck. Crew accommodation meanwhile is for a staff of 12.

The open main deck aft provides a storage platform for toys and tenders with a touch-and-go helipad on the stern. The deck has room for two tenders, Jet Skis or quad bikes, and a submarine, with two independent cranes to port and starboard for easy launching. Further storage can be found below with room for another two tenders and more toys for exploring both land and sea.

Other deck configurations can include an infinity pool in the centre, a heli-hangar, or raised helipad with a pool or lounge beneath.

Power will come from twin CAT 3512 engines, offering a range of 5000 nautical miles when cruising at 11 knots. Rosetti estimates a 36 month construction time for the first Project Orca explorer.

Other projects currently under construction or development at Rosetti Superyachts include a 38 metre explorer scheduled for delivery in May 2021.
