Superyacht 73 – Spring 2022
The first Rosetti Superyacht debuted at the latest Cannes Yachting Festival, first unit of the 2017 founded brand on the industrial Group Rosetti Marino desire.
“Emocean” is her name, a pun to embed all emotions from sailing the ocean into one single word. As said, it is the first unit of Rosetti Superyachts’ 38 metre, this relatively young Italian yard, founded and endorsed by Rosetti Marino Group in 2017. The Group is a listed giant, boasting 18 companies, 9 branches and 100-year history behind itself.
And it was nothing but the background and financial steadiness of the Group to make the difference for two expert owners, along with an absolutely reliable project.
“Emocean” was commissioned by a long-time sailing couple, who also chose Rosetti Superyachts for the chance they were offered to participate in the construction of their yacht.
“We were able to rise to this considerable challenge of establishing ourselves as a new player in the yachting world thanks to the financial solidity of the Group and the technical and engineering expertise that we can rely on within our sister companies,” says Ermanno Bellettini, CEO of RSY.
“The owners of Emocean came to us because of our background in building thoroughly reliable commercial vessels – this was the first thing that they put on their brief,” says Andrea Giora, RSY Sales & Marketing Director. “On the other hand, they wanted to be able to interact with the builder, to know the suppliers, to speak with them and select the best contractor for each element that was to be installed on board.”
The result? A 38-metre long and 8.85 metre wide yacht, 432 gt displacement and 700 square metres to enjoy between outer and inner spaces. External design, as well as naval architecture, is Sergio Cutolo’s job and his Hydro Tech Studio, who developed a classically proportioned profile, yet daring and contemporary in style. Large full-height windows, the owner’s special request, matching lowered gunwales to allow a panoramic view on the horizon.
The layout is entirely centered on the inner spaces dialogue with the outer ones. The main living room is equipped with huge windows and sliding doors to admire the sea in every direction. Two large sliding doors connect the dining areas with side walkways.
“The exterior design is a reflection of the yacht’s functionality and reliability, which were the key priorities for the owners,” says Sergio Cutolo, founder of Hydro Tec who conceived the exterior design and naval architecture. “Special attention has also been dedicated to the crew areas and to the hold volumes, both essential requirements for long voyages far from ports or marinas.”
Internally, the fresh and modern décor style is Burdisso-Capponi Yachts and Design’s job. The palette combines light Crete durmast with a smoked darker one, whereas warm shades of glossy and matt lacquering alternate for the furniture finishing. Silk Georgette marble was chosen for the owner’s toilet, in both raw and brushed versions. Silestone Coral Clay was actually chosen for the guests’ toilets, with suede-effect finishing.
“The project was born from the close collaboration and synergy with the owners who expressed their tastes and desires, functional and layout needs,” says Francesca Burdisso. “Following various meetings it emerged clearly that the staircase would become the fulcrum of the project, reflecting character and style that runs throughout the yacht.”
A customized sculpture by Giacinto Bosco was actually chosen to enhance the style of the entrance hall.
“The owners wanted a choice of materials and natural tones that transmit a muted but fresh ambience with Mediterranean accents,” continues Burdisso. “The furniture forms are characterised by clean and essential lines and the open-plan layout is divided into a succession of spaces that are emotionally diversified.”
The main deck layout shows a living area and the owner’s suite. The former, in turn, is the union of a veranda style, aft oriented living room, and a dining room. A 150-bottle wine cellar separates the two areas. The owner’s suite includes a private office, a walk-in wardrobe and two private restrooms.
The lower deck hosts four guests’ cabins, two doubles and two twin bedded, and the crew area composed of three cabins, canteen, pantry and kitchen. Aft is home to a large and comfortable beach club, whereas a technical area with laundry and closet stretches between the lower and the main deck. To face long no-stop cruises, the yacht features a 3000lt space for fridges and freezers, as well as consistently big tanks for water and fuel.
The main living room, the captain’s cabin and the bridge are all found on the upper deck, whose external spaces, bow and aft, are respectively dedicated to a large, sunbathing lounge and a living room close to the tender
The 150 square metre sundeck hosts a waterfall Jacuzzi, a large bar area with its 12 seating table, and a gym.
Fully equipped with displacing bulb hull, cmc electric stabilizers and extended skeg, the yacht is optimized to sail between 10 and 11 knots cruising speed thanks to her two 588 kw MAN.
“Stylistically, this is not your typical explorer yacht,” says Giora. “But in other ways it complies with the explorer concept, including a huge range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots, solid design and construction, and great storage volumes. So in terms of the main characteristics of what true explorers are all about, she is definitely an explorer yacht!”.
