Rossinavi and Pininfarina Collaborate on Super Sport 65 Superyacht Concept
by Miranda Blazeby
Unveiled at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the concept has been designed inside and out by Pininfarina.
The design takes inspiration from high-performance car design and the “fluidity of Pininfarina’s iconic style", the builder said. It follows Aurea, a 70 metre concept revealed by Rossinavi and Pininfarina in 2017.
The 65 metre all-aluminium Super Sport 65 has an 11-metre beam and draft of 2.2 metres, enabling easy access to shallow and remote bays.
The 960GT interior has accommodation for a total of 12 guests in six cabins, including a large owner’s cabin at the bow. The crew quarters meanwhile consists of seven cabins for the captain and crew members.
Elsewhere, the yacht features a main staircase inspired by the air intakes of high-performance road vehicles which merges into the floor to ceiling windows. Two Jacuzzis sit at each end of the boat.
Speaking about the collaboration with Rossinavi, Pininfarina chairman Paolo Pininfarina said the two companies “speak the same language and share the same passion and values.”
“Leveraging on this common background and vision, Pininfarina is in the best position to express its creativity, taking inspiration from our sports cars and translating their sleek and fast lines into the design of the super yacht.”
Equipped with four MTU 16V 2000 M96L 1939kW engnines, the Super Sport 65 has a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots for a 4,000 nautical mile range.
