Rossi Navi’s 48m motor yacht Vellmari is launched in Italy

Rossi Navi’s 48m motor yacht Vellmari is launched in Italy

Despite a morning of wind, rain and snow, Rossi Navi’s 48m motor yacht Vellmari splashed down in Viareggio today.

The owners, yard staff and designer Enrico Gobbi attended the launch, which is the culmination of 16 months of building – beginning at the Italian builder’s Pisa yard and moving to the Viareggio facility in March last year for outfitting. Delivery is expected in late March.

The all-aluminium trideck has an unusual layout. Most notable are a lower deck VIP that is the near-equal of the full beam (8.9m) main deck master – in both size and grandeur – and an extraordinarily flexible sky lounge.

This features a removable hard top and four retractable windows, a custom spa pool with encircling windows that can be slid around to make it an indoor or outdoor amenity, a luxurious bar and a huge foredeck area with a 12-person dining table and sun-pads.

The interior decor by Gobbi’s Team for Design features cherry wood, cream leather panelling, cream carpets, onyx and recessed deckhead panels with star-like fibre optics over notable features.

The generous interior spaces come packaged in Gobbi’s modern, chiselled lines that he describes as ‘military and luxury’. Particularly distinctive are the gill-like floor-to-ceiling windows in the master cabin.

With two 2,000hp MTU engines the yacht is expected to have a cruising speed of 16 knots. She will accommodate eight guests in four cabins and seven crew-members (including captain) in five cabins.
