Rossinavi consolidates its position among the Gotha of metal built superyachts in the course of the latest International Boat show in Monaco with Numptia a 70 metre motor yacht.

Rossi boat yard started up in the last quarter of the preceding century and continues to perform in the superyacht segment with a simple company policy of doing the one step at a time, and it definetely seems to have paid off adamantly. Prior to the period the yard specialized in carpentry and joinery and started to build metal boats only in the 80’s which were in the main passenger ships only. Ten years later the shipyard becomes known for the quality of refits carried out on large yachts as well as for the designing and manufacturing of hydraulic systems to launch and recover tenders from large yachts.

Today a good forty years later Rossinavi comes back anew in brand and fame. With more than 15 boats between 24 and 45 metres and approximately 60 to which the yard built superstructures and hulls for third parties as well ranging between 20 and 70 metres.

Rossinavi has become one of the star players in the successful “made in Italy” scenario for superyachts across the world. With two operational ship building yards, the first and foremost of which is a historical one situated in Viareggio and the other in Pisa also in Italy where currently four models are under construction, a 45 metre semi-displacing motor yacht, a 46 metre by Mulder Design, a 47 metre by Team for Design and the innovative Ketos 48 metre also by the same design studio. In addition to the above mentioned there are two in advanced project phase namely a 46 metre classic and a 55 metre which has stemmed from “South” that has already opened the doors leading to fame.

The latest cruising one is instead Numptia. Designed by the team made up of Spadolini & Salvagni Naval Architects, Numptia was in fact exhibited at the latest Monaco International Yacht Show, sporting her four elegantly designed decks plus sun deck with a steel hull and light alloy superstructure.

Her elegant and sober look stands out strongly from flowing glossy topsides. The interiors are representative of the owner’s personality bearing well defined design solutions of strong impact with a layout which stands clear of traditional diagrams, but which has privileged the continuity of different spaces linked to one another through a sense of fluid connection which is therefore free of the kind of confusion enhanced by excessive compartmentalisation of the space available. Similarly everything from furniture to accessories and décor as well as lighting has been carefully selected to enhance greater comfort, for the owner and guests to enjoy, in an environment which is equally welcoming and pleasing to the eye.

Every deck sports a different appeal which the architects have harmoniously blended together through a stylistic continuum where rice paper scrolls, galuchat, bronze and Murano glass objects have been wisely inserted to blend with natural materials that are chromatically different like ebony and teak are to marble and stone.

The furniture has been “tailor made” as per the owner’s wishes including embellishing seating arrangements for the saloons and the impressive media lounge in which to enjoy unforgettable moments watching films. There are many convivial areas in which to relax on board along the upper decks destined to day use, whereas the lower deck hosts the guests quarters as well as some of the crew’s. As normally happens the owner’s suite takes up most of the bow section of the main deck with plenty of natural light pouring in from large window panels and features a really amazing bathroom containing a stone sculptured bath tub which stands out in contrast with dark marble flooring.

Furthermore several areas dedicated for one’s well being are situated between the bridge and upper deck, where the owner and his guests can gather between work out sessions in the gym and pleasant moments spent in the wellness parlours of choice: massage, sauna, or hammam, while tan fans have a number of options to chose from as well all with ocean view. Additionally Numptia also sports a dedicated sun deck which is part covered by a hard top and several generously sized sun pads. She almost tops 19 knots and therefore can offer fast week end cruising but also more demanding crossings thanks to a range of 7,500 nautical miles.
