Ter­ra­nova Ital­ian Yachts, known for its T85 ex­plorer ves­sel (be­low), has re­freshed the 2005 de­sign. While re­tain­ing the yacht’s dis­tinc­tive lines, the builder has added higher-end in­te­rior ma­te­ri­als and a con­tem­po­rary lay­out. The re­vamped en­gine room, whose hy­brid propul­sion was de­vel­oped with Cater­pil­lar and Trans­fluid, is in­tended to let yachts­men cruise to sen­si­tive marine parks and other pro­tected ar­eas of the globe. With a dou­ble clutch sys­tem for in­verter-mo­tor trans­mis­sion or mo­tor­gen­er­a­tor-in­verter, the en­gines pro­duce elec­tri­cal en­ergy that is stored in a lithium bat­tery bank, where it can be reused later for propul­sion. Cantiere delle Marche has launched 108-foot (33-me­ter) Nauta Air ex­plorer yacht Nar­valo. Com­mis­sioned by a South Amer­i­can owner, the steel and alu­minum trideck with dis­place­ment hull by Nauta De­sign is the builder’s new flag­ship. Nar­valo (right) has a sky lounge nearly as vo­lu­mi­nous as the main sa­lon, more than 500 square feet (46.4 square me­ters) of outdoor liv­ing space, a dining area, four guest state­rooms and a bay for an 18-foot ten­der. The sun­deck has a hot tub, sun­pads, a dining area and a bar. Nar­valo will de­but at the Cannes Yacht­ing Fes­ti­val in Septem­ber.

In ad­di­tion to her win­dows, can­tilevered fly­bridge and Euro-style lines, Cranchi’s Sixty Fly has note­wor­thy ameni­ties in her outdoor spa­ces. A fore­deck sun­pad has a fold­away bi­mini top to block wind and sun at an­chor, while the cock­pit has a dining ta­ble and hy­draulic swim plat­form. The fly­bridge is avail­able in mul­ti­ple con­fig­u­ra­tions, with set­tees or a dining op­tion with al­fresco bar­be­cue and wet bar. Her con­tem­po­rary-Ital­ian in­te­rior mo­tif fea­tures a mod­ish, curvy chaise in the mas­ter state­room. Pow­ered with twin 625-horse­power Volvo Penta D11s with IPS drives— or the op­tional 725-hp drives—the 60 is a breeze to op­er­ate in tight quar­ters with joy­stick con­trol. Keep an eye out for a new-model 77-footer, which Cranchi tells us is in the works for 2017.
