A line of open yachts with the name of Bu­gatti

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - YACHTS -

Only two years ago the motor yacht Khalilah, a gem some 49 me­tres long with car­bon fi­bre hull, stunned the world. A gam­ble deemed fool­ish by many, or how­ever par­tic­u­larly risky, which chose to go against the grain with a whole se­ries of choices: re­verse bow, large win­dows, enor­mous cut-out sec­tions on the first bridge to give vis­i­bil­ity to the in­te­rior and an in­com­pre­hen­si­bly de­signed deck­house, which ap­pears to be oriented to amaze rather than be prac­ti­cal and use­able. But we are talk­ing about a brand that is al­lowed some ex­cesses, in fact, it ac­tively looks to in­clude them in or­der to sat­isfy its valu­able in­ter­na­tional clien­tele - with its his­toric ship­yard in the United States in busi­ness for a cen­tury, it has lit­er­ally re­ceived ev­ery type of re­quest. Against this back­ground, the Bu­gatti Nini­ette 66 se­ries, a new dy­nasty of rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent yachts, is des­tined to amaze. No longer enor­mous, su­per multi-bridge or dis­place­ment, no longer gi­ant opens, but three ex­tremely beau­ti­ful, prac­ti­cal and sporty boats from 50 to 88 feet, which can be sailed di­rectly by the own­ers and will en­ter­tain and amaze, be­gin­ning with the name they bear. The Nini­ette 66 is the mid­dle model, which will prob­a­bly be the one most in demand. It has an en­joy­able length and is sta­ble on the sea with­out be­ing too showy or com­pli­cated to han­dle, be­cause we all know that weight leads to slow­ness, even on the sea. These enor­mous toys with speeds of 40/45 knots were de­signed to be the per­fect com­ple­ment to the Ch­i­ron - and the price is in fact very sim­i­lar. In line with the tra­di­tion of the mar­que, the yacht is all blue and dec­o­rated with de­tails in ti­ta­nium and car­bon like the su­perb sports cars with which it shares its name. But the space avail­able is an­other story, as is the rich

quota of ac­ces­sories. In this yacht there’s no anx­i­ety or fear when the en­gine is started. The num­ber of cylin­ders and the power avail­able are al­most com­pa­ra­ble, but this isn’t what mat­ters to those who chose this exclusive prod­uct. The best thing is en­joy­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence aboard the yacht as if you were in your own hy­per­car. This nau­ti­cal “twin” of the Ch­i­ron, at first glance, ap­pears very sim­i­lar to the car - the enor­mous 270 de­grees curve that em­braces both yacht and car, be­gin­ning at the front and ex­tend­ing al­most to the water­line in the first case and form­ing the side skirts in the other, chan­nels the air and gives a unique depth to the shape, and can be seen and ap­pre­ci­ated even at a dis­tance, even if car and yacht are not side by side. In the cock­pit, the two very sporty leather seats are im­me­di­ately no­tice­able, but it is the steer­ing wheel with the ini­tials EB in plain sight that adds the per­fect fin­ish­ing touch to the dig­i­tal con­sole, which seems to have come out of a science fic­tion film. This tech­no­log­i­cal gem will de­light any sailor, but the jew­els in the crown are the op­tion­als, such as the hide-away Jacuzzi which dis­ap­pears un­der the cen­tral sun lounger, and the fire pit, also “hide-away” (it emerges from a small ta­ble), de­signed to il­lu­mi­nate and warm up evenings out­doors on

board - an­other in­cred­i­ble gam­ble, since fire, in the world of sail­ing, is the num­ber one en­emy of any sail­ing craft, re­gard­less of its size. Cer­tainly the car­bon Jacuzzi is some­thing truly new in the sec­tor, but that’s not all, be­cause go­ing down to the lower bridge, you can bet­ter ap­pre­ci­ate the French in­flu­ence in the de­sign, shapes and use of lux­u­ri­ous ma­te­ri­als. Be­low deck, ev­ery square inch is made from ex­quis­ite ma­te­ri­als, from light leather to brushed car­bon and beau­ti­ful pan­elling on the walls and ceil­ing, unique and so­phis­ti­cated to the sight and touch. Just like ev­ery square inch of the in­te­rior of a road-go­ing Bu­gatti.

Ispi­rato alla splen­dida Bu­gatti Ch­i­ron, lo yacht Bu­gatti Nini­ette 66 in Edizione Lim­i­tata è il risul­tato dell'alchimia nata dalla col­lab­o­razione di Palmer John­son e Bu­gatti. Uno yacht dallo stile lus­su­oso e dalla qual­ità in­eguagli­a­bile. In­spired by the...
