MY FUTURA 100’
From the smouldering ashes of a once famed ship yard a new brand is born: Fabiani Yacht. The initiative sees a pool of entrepreneurs joining forces and buying up the premises situated between the provinces of Leghorn and Pisa to kick off with an ambitious project of which Futura 100’ is the first entry. Futura 100’ will be the elder of a new fleet of yachts which will be equipped with loads of technology and technical aspects to match. Navirex naval engineering studio was called in to contribute but more so Mario Grass naval engineer and Roberto Curtò designer who worked together to find solutions for the many requests wanted by the shipyard starting with the layout which is to enable people in wheel chairs to enjoy complete fruition of the yacht autonomously from the moment they get on board of the yacht from any quayside. Another request had to do with innovation of everything from styling to technical safety gear, ensuring reliability in any weather and comfort. As for design and looks, the innovative process can clearly be seen in the large cut glass in the topsides and along some of the superstructure ensuring plenty of natural light as well as a considerable terrace like opening along the topsides which enhances a sense of greater contact between inside and the surroundings out. The coachroof opens up in the bow section which directly accesses the lounge /sunbathing area and so does the hardtop structure. Obviously there are differences in the layout and in the choice of materials dedicated to the decor which can be chosen accordingly.the suggested or standard interiors foresee a full beam owner suite at amidships, plus two VIP cabins one a twin the other a double.the day area is made up of a living room and dining area, a lounge and ‘fold away’ bar/galley. The helm controls station is situated along the upper deck and sports an A/C unit. The yacht can host from 4 to 6 six crew accordingly. Technically speaking the main innovation is to be found in the choice of the engines and their types which can be hybrid with considerable battery banks hidden from view. With this configuration the yacht’s displacement would increase by approximately 15 tons, and would allow the yacht to cruise at 8 knots for several consecutive hours without stopping and without deploying endothermic power houses.
