The gems of the yacht­ing world

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - ENGINES -

Again this year it was a plea­sure to stroll along the quays and pon­toons of the boat shows of the Côte d’Azur. There’s still a cer­tain amount of en­thu­si­asm for the sec­tor de­voted to the ut­most in yacht­ing life­style. To­day, how­ever, more at­ten­tion is paid to cau­tion and de­sign co­her­ence, with less tol­er­ance to­wards projects that are un­re­al­is­tic or in bad taste. Mean­while, the true val­ues com­pat­i­ble with life at sea gain ground - val­ues such en­ergy sav­ings, fol­lowed closely by re­spect for the en­vi­ron­ment, but also di­rect ben­e­fits for boat own­ers such as in­creased com­fort, quiet­ness and long range. The other good news is that, with the ex­cep­tion of the ex­treme-length yacht sec­tor where the undis­puted pro­tag­o­nists re­main the Dutch and the Bri­tish, the lead­ing play­ers of many of the most imag­i­na­tive new ves­sels are the Ital­ian ship­yards. You only need to look at one of the most re­cent cre­ations from Ad­mi­ral, Name­less, the Ca­cos V, a real gem of yacht, the work of Luca Dini in part­ner­ship with the Group Style Cen­tre. This semi-dis­place­ment ves­sel of 41 me­tres boasts two sig­nif­i­cant records: the great­est in­te­rior vol­ume in the world for its cat­e­gory and the high­est rat­ing for com­fort ever as­signed by RINA (Reg­istro Ital­iano Navale), which in­di­cates val­ues of noise and vi­bra­tions that are de­cid­edly be­low av­er­age lev­els for the sec­tor. Paszkowski and Mancini have in­stead put their sig­na­ture on the umpteenth re­birth of a Bagli­etto 44 me­tres with the in­trigu­ing name of Monokini, cho­sen by the owner to high­light the lev­els of com­fort and unique ameni­ties. The fur­nish­ings and func­tions for out­door liv­ing in this craft were a ma­jor pri­or­ity, while the in­te­ri­ors clearly draw in­spi­ra­tion from avi­a­tion de­sign. Dini lends his name again to the lat­est ves­sel from Mondo Ma­rine, Name­less, which was pre­sented at the Monaco Yacht Show. No ex­pense was spared in
