CANTIERE NAVALE MOSTES
work in progress AUDACE 80
Cantiere Navale Mostes is proceeding well with the construction of the displacing navetta model Audace 80 designed to cruise every ocean in any climate. Audace 80 is a smart three decker built in steel and aluminium with enough fuel capacity to cruise extensively without having to refuel. The hull design was tank tested to offer maximum stability, efficiency ( meaning optimized fuel consumption) while sporting considerable volumes inside.the chosen power house is made up of a pair of heavy duty MAN engines developing 381 HP each which should propel the motor yacht to a top speed of just 11 knots, while being very low on fuel consumption the yacht has been designed to offer great on board comfort with a range of 5,000 nm. Quick gyro stabiliser plants have been installed which further comfort at sea by improving the yacht’s trim via liquid ballast containers which will shift weight accordingly as needed. The interior layout comprises two guest cabins, two VIP along the lower deck and a huge suite for the owner is situated along the main deck close to the lounge and convivial areas. The third deck is set up for outdoor activities and hosts a modern helm controls station as well, so that the owner/captain can be in contact with guests while cruising.
“Project Audace stems from the desire to satisfy the needs of a demanding owner who was seeking something very different from many other yachts and to do this his choice fell on a yacht built to cruise every ocean in any weather in comfort and safety”, says Nicola Praticò, owner of the company. “The distinguishing characteristics and traits of the Audace line are those found in explorer yachts with proven sea keeping qualities equipped with engines capable of delivering continuous service at max. Rpm. The steel sheets de- ployed to build this yacht are consistently thick ranging from 12 mm to 8 mm accordingly. The ribs along the bottom are very close to one another for added stiffness, long rage fuel tanks complete the picture.... With this project there has been no compromising in terms of safety and solidity. Devised to explore new horizons, with no limits to satisfy the desires of an owner who wants to effectively enjoy cruising the yacht all over the world at a leisurely pace”.
