Video: 49m superyacht Flying Dagger launched by Rossinavi
by Chris Jefferies
The 49 metre superyacht Flying Dagger, previously known as Project FR036, was launched in Viareggio on April 21, her build yard Rossinavi has confirmed. Sold in May 2016, this fast aluminium motor yacht was styled inside and out by Enrico Gobbi's Team For Design.
The launch day video below gives brief glimpses of her deck layout, with a foredeck seating area adjacent to a radically sloped windscreen. The fin-like radar arch continues these sporty lines, with a compact flybridge set aft.
The design focuses on ensuring low noise emissions to give greater comfort during navigation and uses wide windows and skylights to allow plenty of natural light to flood the interior and offer guests superb panoramic views.
Inside there’s an upper deck saloon with an L-shaped sofa, while the main deck saloon is, naturally, much larger with more soft seating and space for eight to dine around a central table. The forward master suite is spacious, flanked by an office and ensuite.
Flying Dagger will reach a maximum speed of 27 knots, powered by three 2,600hp MTU engines and three KaMeWa waterjets. She will have a cruising speed of 23 knots and is capable of a 3,300 nautical mile range at 12 knots. The aft tender garage is complemented by a foredeck Jet Ski locker.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 63 metre Utopia IV, which was launched last month and is due for delivery in time for the summer season.
