There’s a new superyacht coming to the Caribbean.
Rossinavi and Camper & Nicholsons have debuted their collaboration with a new concept in superyachts, and the result is the spectacular new “Infinity.”
Camper & Nicholsons will market and exclusively distribute for the territory of the Americas and Asia the Rossinavi-built Infinity series as well as provide expert guidance to owners, the company said this week.
“With Infinity we wanted to overcome the challenges of allowing wide common areas for entertaining within a possibly limiting sporty design. The sporting spirit of the project nevertheless maintains Rossinavi’s high standards in terms of comfort and sea attitude,” said Federico Rossi, COO of Rossinavi.
The idea behind Infinity was to create a boat concept that starts from a simple sharp line that connects two windows; one looking out into the horizon and the other one pointing towards the stern, through the owner’s entertaining area.
Infinity features Rossinavi’s typical “sporty” lines for a high performance boat.
A fast displacement hull with shallow draft and wide outdoor areas on the upper deck are the signature of this design, with exteriors and full custom interiors designed by Italian architect Fulvio De Simoni.
“We have analyzed which could be a style mark for the future. Infinity defines a new sportive and elegant design with very strong character that links together boats between 42 and 69 meters,” De Simoni said. “We realized that there was a gap in the market for this particular boat concept and decided to develop Infinity. This design range will include four boats; four different experiences out in the sea.”
The fast displacement hull allows to reach over 20 knots of speed preserving at the same time very limited consumption at low speeds, as in a displacement boat.
Infinity’s high stability also in rough seas allows to have the owner cabin in the upper deck of the boat.
Internal noise levels within Infinity are low and far exceed the values of similar classic displacement boats.
The superyacht is also versatile, with hulls adept for transoceanic navigation as well as shallow waters thanks to its draft between 2 and 2.5 meters.
“This collaboration further expands Camper & Nicholsons’ focus on our New Build division,” said Paolo Casani, Chief Executive Officer, Camper & Nicholsons, International. “With over 200 years of heritage and nautical know-how, we are the subject matter experts to help clients build the boat of their dreams. A yacht often takes years to build and features thousands of components, so the purchase of such an asset requires the best advice and that is what we bring to the table.”
