Italian shipyard, Rossinavi has launched its first explorer yacht from their Pisa shipyard with a showstopping red hull designed by Gian Paolo Nari and interior design by FM Architettura. The fifth largest hull designed by the team, AKULA is is an ice-class explorer vessel designed to cruise to the most remote corners of the globe and fulfil her owner’s dreams to venture off the beaten path.
First Explorer Yacht for the Yard
Complete with an ultra-efficient diesel electric propulsion system that will help burn less fuel and reduce the carbon footprint of the yacht, AKULA will go further and much more efficient than her predecessors.
Rossinavi’s Chief Operating Officer, Federico Rossi shares, “The key concept of this project is that it is a boat for cruising. With the owner’s input, we were able to best express the know-how and skills we have gained through decades of experience.”
Designed to be “cozy yet elegant,” Founder of FM Architettura, Francesca Muzio shared, “I was very lucky to meet this owner, who guided and empowered the entire team involved in the creation of this yacht. A real ship, a combination of elements that led to an original result: a strong but elegant vessel that fits perfectly with our view of modern yachting.”
Additional unique yacht design details include a yacht layout to support “marine research activities and philanthropic projects.” A large observation lounge is available on the bow where guests can enjoy stunning views in some of the world’s most unspoiled locales. Additional storage for expeditions can be found on the sundeck with space in the garage for two 30ft tenders, diving equipment, and two 20ft containers that can be used as transportable labs during marine expeditions.
