Napoli-based studio Victory Design has revealed preliminary details about its new 50 metre concept, named Bolide 170.
The concept, which is due to be unveiled in full at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show, draws on years of experience from founder Brunello Acampora and his team of international designers and engineers.
Key to the yacht’s design is a top speed of 50 knots, which can be upped to over 70 knots if the client opts for a hybrid version consisting of four gas turbines and electric motors. This design version features a composite hull and hybrid electric apparatus with a latest-generation battery pack.
Meanwhile, the diesel version features a light alloy hull and a carbon fibre superstructure and will be powered by six 2,200hp MAN engines, in a "triple staggered" configuration.
In a statement, the studio said: “It is a Formula 1 range, but easy and safe to drive, achieving high performance with reduced fuel consumption per mile: by 50 per cent compared to yachts of the same length, thanks to its technological assets.”
The layout of the Bolide 170 harnesses open-plan spaces designed to work in harmony with the surrounding nature. Across the yacht, the design team has paid special attention to balancing privacy with conviviality.
In addition to the master suite, there are four guest cabins and a large crew area.
At the stern, a generous beach club plays host to unfolding sea terrace sand and a waterfront swimming pool - with a second swimming pool on the bow, above the tenders and toys garage.
"These boats are designed for true collectors and for those who love the thrill - which cannot be waived - of speed, while experiencing it with up-to-date means, in total safety and reducing environmental impact,” explained Brunello Acampora.
The studio also revealed that its 24 metre Bolide 80 is now in build in collaboration with Persico Marine and under supervision by Eugenio Voltolina.
