Sailing yacht Nativa launched by Arzanà Navi
by Raphael Montigneaux
Launched on 21 April, a beautiful sloop-rigged yacht called Nativa was spotted in Venice during the America's Cup World Series regatta in mid-May. She's the first of two sisters to be constructed at Arzanà Navi.
Built in aluminum to a design by Bill Tripp, Nativa has a length of 48.15m. Her massive glassed superstructure offers guests a perfect living area on the main deck, quite different from the usual layout of a sailing yacht.
This layout is a response to an in-depth market analysis which showed that a certain segment of owners want the pleasure of performance sailing yachts combined with the comfort and layout of a motor yacht.
What's more, the yacht's minimal impact on the environment has earned it RINA Green Star certification.
Nativa has a modern interior designed by Arzanà Navi's in-house team. It accommodates 10 guests in five cabins, including a full-beam master, two double and two twin cabins, and a crew of eight.
Nativa will be ready in time for the summer season, but her sistership is not expected to hit the water until the end of the year.
