Rossinavi FR032 launched and named Endeavour II

The 49.9 metre Rossinavi yacht FR032 has been launched and named Endeavour II, the Italian yard has revealed.

Featuring exterior styling by Team For Design, naval architecture by Arrabito and interior décor by Salvagni Architetti, this all-aluminium displacement yacht comprises a total volume of less than 500GT.

Accommodation on board this tri-deck motor yacht is for ten guests split between an owner’s cabin, two doubles and two twins, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to nine people.

Endeavour II hit the water for the first time on February 18, and the launch ceremony took place at the yard’s Pisa facility in the presence of the owner and Rossinavi CEO Claudio Rossi.

Chief engineer Gabriele Zucconi oversaw the innovative propulsion system on the Endeavour II project. He praised the choice of name as particularly fitting, since this long-range cruiser pays homage to Captain James Cook’s 18th century research ship HM Bark Endeavour.

Key features include a plumb bow to maximise the waterline length and an enclosed skylounge, which promises great views out to sea.

Power comes from a diesel-electric drivetrain featuring twin Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines and a pair of Rolls Royce US105 P9CRPs for a total output of 2,550hp. As a result, Endeavour II boasts a top speed of 17 knots and a globetrotting range of 5,000 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 12 knots.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 70 metre flagship yacht King Shark, which was recently sold in a direct deal and is due to hit the water in 2020.
