Rossinavi’s Hat Trick: Three Superyachts by Five International Design Studios



Three Rossinavi superyacht projects, each by unique design studios, are all running alongside each other for a 2020 delivery. We take a look at what they are and ask, which one is for you?

Viareggio-based Rossinavi has wasted no time over the years, collaborating and drawing on the talent of prominent international design studios. Throughout 2020, Rossini will deliver three separate superyacht projects to their owners, with each having been uniquely worked on by different designers.

In conjunction with owner’s desires, each and every designer brings its own flair and inspiration to a project. It’s no surprise then that three superyachts all closely within the 50m/164’ length could all finish completely distinct, and individually unique.


Sporty character, long-range navigation and generous outdoor space.

After two years under construction, the 50m M/Y LeL (previously seen on concepts as ellelle and FR038) has just been delivered by Rossinavi. She was commissioned by a private client who requested as many spacious and comfortable living areas as possible on board. Luca Dini Design, contracted to shape the interior and exterior, has balanced a sporty and traditional Italian yacht design with interior spaces common to new-generation vessels created for entertaining.

Her styling is characterised by a plumb bow and high gunwales. Full-height windows span the length of the main deck and upper deck, providing guests with excellent views of the surroundings even while lounging or dining indoors. LeL’s competitive advantage is enhanced from the generously sized main common areas, making her stand out in the segment of mega yachts with a similar gross tonnage.

As well as having the fastest top speed and cruising speeds of the three yachts, the crisp sharp lines and simplicity of M/Y LeL will definitely give her a commanding presence on the water.

With an expected spring 2020 delivery, this yacht is a fusion of Rossinavi know-how, Italian design plus technological and mechanical components from the United States. Enrico Gobbi’s Team For Design was tasked with shaping the exterior and interior of Vector 50. Since the vessel will spend most of its time in US and Caribbean territory, the vessels electrical system has been made US standard. Vector 50 has also been designed with a shallow draft specifically for cruising clear blue Caribbean waters.

The attention to US standards is also applied to its ergonomic function and elegant interiors, a response to the clients’ desire and the growing interest in Rossinavi from the American market. 12 guests can be accommodated across six cabins with Vector 50 sporting a forward facing master suite with an intimate private terrace on the starboard side. Vector 50 sits in the middle of all three superyachts in regards to speed and range.


A timeless project with fluid and elegant exterior lines.

Before embarking on the 70m M/Y King Shark (due 2021), Florentia was the project that had Rossinavi back to building a boat over 52 meters with more than 500GT. With a steel hull and aluminum superstructure designed by Studio Vafiadis, Florentia is positioned in a market niche for people who appreciate a yacht with balanced lines and a great attitude to traditional boating. The design of Florentia is intended to be timeless with fluid and elegant exterior lines.

Rossinavi states, “The aim of our design is to create a new milestone in the yachting industry, an elegant beauty that will never get old and satisfy all of her owner’s dreams.”

Florentia’s interior has been the result of a collaboration between Carlo Colombo and A++ Design Studio. An early description of Florentia mentioned a staircase, set to be the sculptural heart of the boat, and a mirrored ring placed in the center of the master suit to bring reflections of the sea inside the room. Florentia has enough living space to accommodate up to 12 guests overnight and 12 crew members.

  • 6 full-size cabins
  • Steel and aluminium construction
  • Hybrid propulsion option
  • Ample opportunity for customization
  • Comprehensive tech specs
  • Design by Giorgio M. Cassetta

Tankoa Yachts has just announced it is extending its superyacht range into a more compact 45 metre range beginning with the T450 range. This will be the first time Tankoa has produced a superyacht under 50m. Tankoa assures that the smaller vessel of just over 400GT will be produced in keeping with the brand’s hard-earned reputation for quality and comfort combined with innovation and elegance

“Building on the extraordinary success of our 50m platform with Bintador and Vertige already delivered and two more in build, the T450 confirms Tankoa’s drive to build yachts below 500GT that are designed with a big boat mentality and quality” says Giuseppe Mazza, Tankoa Sales Manager. “This new 45m model has been designed to provide maximum flexibility, and in terms of interior and exterior space it feels like a much larger vessel.”

Unusually for a 45m superyacht of 405GT, the T450 can accommodate 12 guests in 6 cabins. This accommodation comprises a full-beam owner’s stateroom and a VIP suite on the main deck forward as well as four en-suite cabins on the lower deck.

An open-plan dining room/main salon with full-height glazing overlooks the sweeping, open aft deck, which recalls the design of some super sailing yachts. This huge terraced area functions as an open-air beach club with a glass-fronted pool at its centre flanked by staircases down to the water-level swim platform. But the flexible design provides alternative layout solutions, such as aft-facing seating on the lower level and a large bar unit on the upper level.

The spacious sundeck offers the option of another pool, sunbeds, shaded dining area, a forward bar with sofa seating and a dayhead.

The bridge deck offers more al fresco dining for a full complement of guests and a sky lounge that can function as a media room. There is another generous lounging/social area on the open foredeck in front of the wheelhouse, where the guest tender and rescue render are stowed.

In addition to the guest cabins on the lower deck, there is a large lazarette in the stern, the galley and crew dinette, extra cold storage, laundry, and accommodation for 8 crew members plus the captain on the bridge deck with direct access to the wheelhouse.

The T450 can be fitted with hybrid propulsion to reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as reducing noise and vibration to a minimum.

Presented by The Italian Sea Group, the “Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63” has been inspired by the hybrid Lamborghini Siàn FKP 37 and references the year of Lamborghini’s beginnings – 1963.

As a new super sport motor yacht that blends the best of the nautical and sports car worlds, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63″ bears the same Lamborghini style steering wheel with its iconic fighter jet style “start” button, and a signature Lamborghini “racing style” seat for the captain.

The project initially started as a joint design analysis between Tecnomar and the Lamborghini Style Center, to interpret common traits and blend the DNA of the two brands into an ultra-luxury sports yacht.

Sporting two MAN V12-2000HP engines for a total 4000CV, the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 motor yacht can reach 60 knots of speed and will be the fastest boat in the Tecnomar fleet of The Italian Sea Group. The unmistakable signature Lamborghini fighter pilot styled “start & stop” button will also be present on the yacht in two units, one per engine.

The “Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63” yacht is available in three main variants:

LOUNGE VERSION: The open space is the concept, functional and essential, with a fully equipped kitchen, headboard for guests and closet, a large open space with lounge sofas and wardrobe. Last but not least the owner’s private bathroom to always have your privacy.

1 CABIN VERSION: Maintaining the design and style of the lounge version, the kitchen is divided from the bow area, thus obtaining a king size bed from the sofa. The bow cabin is therefore equipped with large spaces and a dedicated owner bathroom.

2 CABIN VERSION: The new ideal solution to optimize space and have the best of comfort, Two independent cabins. The owner cabin with its king size maintains comfort levels worthy of a super luxury hotel. The guest cabin was created to accommodate a couple of friends or two children thanks to the possibility of having two separate singles that can be joined together in a large king size. The shared bathroom has significant spaces with ample storage and a dream shower.

Sharing on the collaboration, Giovanni Constantino CEO of The Italian Sea Group said, “In May we announced that we had signed the agreement with Automobili Lamborghini and today we are presenting Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63, a motor yacht that I am sure will become a futuristic icon like the car that inspired it. Select owners around the world will own not only the fastest Tecnomar motor yacht in the fleet, but a unique Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63. I am proud to have (been) chosen to create this innovative and challenging project with Automobili Lamborghini that combines technology, excellence in design, quality and performance and that will give us great satisfaction “.

“This yacht best represents what it means for us to create a quality partnership,” said Katia Bassi, Marketing and Communication Chief Executive Officer of Automobili Lamborghini. “The essence of all our collaborations consists in transferring our style and our experience in worlds that despite their diversity, have (something) in common with our traits so that they can be interpreted to add value. If I had had to imagine a Lamborghini on the water, this would have been my vision. I am therefore happy to celebrate this success today”.

Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is not merely an exercise in style and design, but represents the vanguard of luxury speed boats. Inspired by Lamborghini super sports cars’ performance, two of the most innovative elements are at the core of its design concept – speed and dynamic lightness.

Like their supercar siblings, the motor yachts will feature extensive use of carbon fiber, guaranteeing an ultralight boat classification with a maximum weight of 24 tons for 63 feet in length and is the fastest Tecnomar performance yacht to date. Looking inside the Tecnomar by Lamborghini will feature two bedrooms and a bathroom all of which are 100% customizable to an owner’s tastes through the Lamborghini Ad Personam program.

Customers who wish to use the Ad Personam Program can configure their yacht directly by contacting the commercial department of The Italian Sea Group at the following email address: sales@tecnomar63.com

With the support of their team of experts, it is possible to follow all the stages of the project starting from defining the colors, materials, to the production status of your super sports yacht.

Tecnomar is currently taking orders with deliveries set to begin from next year.

The Monaco Yacht Show 2020 has been canceled due to ongoing covid-19 concerns, with the 30th anniversary now rescheduled for September 2021.

While reported earlier this year that this year’s Monaco Yacht Show would still be going ahead in September, albeit, under much different circumstances, organizers of the event have since made the decision to cancel the 2020 Monaco Yacht Show.

Hoping that events would be viable in the later part of 2020, show organizer Informa had initially planned on holding a smaller not-for-profit event to aid the superyacht industry but has since been in talks with stakeholders and partners within the international superyacht industry regarding ongoing COVID-19 pandemic concerns.

With many of the worlds superyachts currently located in the US and Caribbean for the forseeable future, and with global travel restrictions in place, it was decided that it was in the industry’s best interest to postpone the Monaco event until next year while focusing on the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show which is still on schedule for October 2020.

“Like many other industries, the international super yachting community has experienced significant disruption in 2020”, Chief Executive of Informa Markets Charlie McCurdy shared. “As we move to the other side of COVID-19, we are remaining agile in how we are supporting our partners and customers, flexing our events calendar, adapting products and providing digital alternatives where beneficial to best meet the needs of international communities through this difficult period. To this end, we are focusing our efforts in the latter part of the year on delivering a strong platform to showcase the industry at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in late October, with the Monaco Yacht Show now set to return in style in September 2021, when it will celebrate its 30th anniversary.”

The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is one of the largest international yachting events globally and is expected to host more than 900 boats, including 100 superyachts.
