Fly­ing Dag­ger, is the stun­ning 50m project from lux­ury Ital­ian yacht builder, Rossi­navi. Though tech­ni­cally a wa­ter jet boat, the fully cus­tom de­signed yacht launched for sea tri­als in April of this year in Viareg­gio, and was of­fi­cially un­veiled to the pub­lic at the Monaco Yacht Show. With ex­te­rior de­sign from the Venice-based En­rico Gobbi of Team for De­sign, the ro­bust sil­hou­ette is marked by a sporty, semi-dis­place­ment alu­minium hull and su­per­struc­ture. Based in the coastal city of Viareg­gio, the se­cond largest in Italy’s Lucca prov­ince, the ROSSI­NAVI brand builds su­pery­achts 50m and above. The story, how­ever, be­gan at the Rossi ship­yard of the 1970s. Broth­ers Clau­dio and Paride Rossi’s ex­pert knowl­edge of ma­te­ri­als and met­als fab­ri­ca­tion be­came world renown for over­see­ing, sourc­ing, and ap­prov­ing ev­ery sheet of metal. The firm went on to achieve spec­tac­u­lar suc­cess as a sub­con­trac­tor for the in­dus­try’s finest ship­yards in the 1980s. As time would tell,

the brand ul­ti­mately left the sub­con­trac­tor space in 2007. Then, in what can only be de­scribed as a boss move, Rossi­navi de­buted the 54m mo­tor yacht, South, the fol­low­ing year. And they haven’t looked back since.

So, back to Fly­ing Dag­ger. Ac­cen­tu­ated by min­i­mal­ist Laz­zarini Pick­er­ing Ar­chitetti-de­signed in­te­rior, Fly­ing Dag­ger was con­ceived to ex­pe­ri­ence the wa­ter from all sides. The main sa­lon fea­tures three floor-to­ceil­ing glass doors max­i­mize on-board view­ing; a grand mas­ter bed­room comes with pri­vate ter­race; four spa­cious ex­ter­nal decks are spread across three floors al­low for en­ter­tain­ing, din­ing and re­lax­ing; and, along the main deck, a sprawl­ing sun­deck fea­tures a metal­lic and wo­ven metal canopy that pro­tect from sun­light.

Fly­ing Dag­ger’s de­sign also in­cor­po­rates the lat­est re­search de­vel­op­ment on noise and vi­bra­tion re­duc­tion. Noise and sound prop­a­ga­tion per­for­mance can be stands side-by-side with any full dis­place­ment yacht. Fly­ing Dag­ger is a boat that is built to be fast. With a travel range of 3,300 nau­ti­cal miles, a top speed of 31 knots and cruis­ing speed of 24 knots, said de­sign el­e­ments make the yacht in­cred­i­bly ver­sa­tile. Fly­ing Dag­ger also boasts an 8.85m beam be­low the 500 GT mark, a draft of 2.19m, and has three MTU 16V 2000 M96L (2,600 hp) diesel en­gines.

Able to ac­com­mo­date 10 guests in 5 cab­ins and a crew of 9, Fly­ing Dag­ger is per­fect for both long cruise nav­i­ga­tions as well as for shorter trips. Fur­ther­more, the shal­low draft, the wa­ter jet propul­sion and the air­con­di­tioned en­gine room en­able the ves­sel to per­form best in the Caribbean wa­ters. Rossi­navi has evolved from a ma­te­ri­als sub­con­trac­tor to one of the world’s most im­por­tant be­spoke ship­builders. Its min­i­mal­ist, yet re­mark­ably stylish and re­li­able con­struc­tion have be­come the hall­mark of each ves­sel. Fly­ing Dag­ger comes of the heels of their 63m Utopia IV launch in Pisa ear­lier this year.
