Design: Rosetti Superyacht 85m Support Vessel -
Rosetti Superyacht is the project design and construction division of recreational units which was presented by Rosetti Marino Group entrepreneurs in the course of November 2017. With President Fulvio Dodich at the helm, the first model, an 85 metre Expedition Supply Vessel of 2,200 GT whose project was carried out with Tommaso Spadolini’s contribution made its debut. Mr. Spadolini kindly to reveal some of the details concerning this new project. Conceptually created to impose itself on the expedition yachts or supply vessels international market which has been increasing consistently. “The biggest challenge was to create something different to existing expedition yachts” Spadolini explains. “I carefully analysed this market sector the outcome of my analysis resulted in a masculine, frill free exterior design, however what makes this project very different is to be found in the general plans”.this yacht’s layout is totally original also thanks to the version featuring a helicopter pad placed in the stern. Spadolini continues “Not being constrained by the limits pertaining to a traditional yacht nor to specific requests wanted by an owner, I could create solutions which do away with tradition. The 85 metre is equally available with a helipad installed at amidships, but the stern helipad version is without doubt the purest expression of an expedition yacht or supply vessel. It can go everywhere and with relatively low costs, the 85 metre is the most authentic looking yacht I have ever drawn in 40 years”. The designer’s pre-
ferred version is clearly the one sporting a stern helipad which is as far as possible to any of the night quarters with their respective cabins so as to avoid disturbing guests while manoeuvring or taking off and landing. Another feature worth noting is the dedicated passageway connecting the helipad to the owner’s quarters which are situated on two diverse levels. The master suite is situated along the upper deck while a private deck above that hosts a lounge and an open-air terrace with hydro-massage tub and a view of the forward section of the main deck. Spadolini adds as follows: “The open/covered way connecting the two areas is a unique solution for a yacht taking after a work boat”. All of the four guest cabins are served by private bathrooms
along the main deck, while the galley and several crew lodgings are situated along the lower deck. The captain’s cabin is on the bridge deck which houses the helm controls station and the VHF and SSR radios. Below the lower deck we come to technical areas such as the laundry, refrigerators, ship’s stores, clean linen storage, waste storage and access to the engine room with integrated mechanical work shop. The five decks are all connected thanks to a spacious lift which is normally found in a central lobby area which just like the other interior décor is, as described by Spadolini: “contemporary and comfortable but not glitzy”. Considering it is a full-custom project, where owners can choose their own interior designer or personalise the ‘standard’ proposal. We have a day living area/lounge which extends in the stern area along the two decks below the helipad deck. It is completely separated by the lodgings along the bow end but to which it is connected via the original corridor mentioned earlier. Of these two decks, the first one starting from down up welcomes guests in a large living room with a day toilet and pantry. The second one instead is dedicated to a beach club which can offer additional space thanks to opening lateral platforms where there’s a bar, sauna and massage facilities in addition to direct access to the garage storing tenders and toys.
