A NEW YACHTING EXPERIENCE. LA PRESTIGIOSA CORNICE DEL MONACO YACHT SHOW 2017 E’ STATA L’OCCASIONE PER PRESENTARE SE77ANTASETTE, IL PRIMO CONCEPT YACHT PENSATO DAL DESIGNER FERNANDO ROMERO PER BENETTI.
Il panorama nautico abbonda di proposte di concept yacht, molti dei quali è molto probabile che non arriveranno al battesimo in mare ma si limiteranno ad arricchire il desktop di qualche computer di appassionati del genere “belli ma impossibili”.
Il Se77antasette, il cui nome piacerà molto agli amanti della numerologia e, in questo caso specifico del 7 con il suo significato, si presenta come un’interessante sfida. Lo osservi per la prima volta e subito ti colpisce per quelle sue forme sinuosamente armoniose che creano una particolare continuità tra i vari ponti. Questa fluidità di linee non viene interrotta neanche dal sistema radar che viene celato sotto di una cupola di vetro.
Centralmente questo concept yacht, lungo 77 metri e largo 14,20 metri, propone volumi importanti e presenta un grande salone che, a seconda delle esigenze, può trasformarsi in cinema o sala da ballo.
La master suite, collocata a prua del ponte principale, è un appartamento di 100 metri quadrati più 140 metri quadrati di terrazza privata con piscina profonda 1,5 metri e convertibile, grazie a un sistema di sollevamento, in un helipad. Sul ponte inferiore trovano posto invece due cabine VIP e quattro cabine dedicate agli ospiti oltre alle sistemazioni riservate ai 19 membri dell’equipaggio.
Gli amanti della privacy apprezzeranno non poco l’intimità che regala l'”osservatorio“, una cupola di vetro 8,5 metri posizionata sull’upper deck che, al calar del sole, si trasforma in uno schermo a realtà aumentata.
Grazie a tre aperture, l’ingresso di poppa si può trasformare in un’ampia terrazza con vista sul vista sul mare a 270°, con piscina, palestra e sala dedicata ai massaggi così come in uno spazio pieno di luce naturale e con vista sul mare per incontri di lavoro.
MOTORIZZAZIONE E PRESTAZIONI
Se77antasette è equipaggiato con cinque generatori Caterpillar a velocità variabile (4 motori C32 da 1048 ekW e un C18 da 563 ekW) che funzioneranno parallelamente a due doppi pod con eliche controrotanti comandati da motori magnetici permanenti. La velocità massima si attesterebbe sui 16 nodi e l’autonomia, a un’andatura di crociera di 12 nodi, a 5.000 miglia.[:en]
BORN TO BE DIFFERENT. SE77ANTASETTE, PRESENTED IN OCCASION OF THE MONACO YACHT SHOW 2017, IS THE FIRST CONCEPT YACHT DESIGNED FOR BENETTI BY THE YACHT DESIGNER FERNANDO ROMERO.
Benetti, in partnership with Fernando Romero, one of the world’s most influential architects and famed for his high-profile civil projects, presented at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show 2017 the innovative Se77antasette concept yacht.
Se77antasette, 77 meters long and 14,20 meters wide, breaks away from the traditional concept of yachts that subscribe to a rigid horizontal order, featuring a revolutionary design in which flowing lines are combined with complex structures that draw their inspiration from the marine habitat, creating harmonious connections between all decks, design features, and surrounding environment.
Visually, this dynamic union between decks creates a single body that seems carved into the structure of the boat, offering original spatial proportions that enhance the close relationship between nature and the sea.
This type of design also draws on the use of highly advanced technology that can be found firstly in the innovative layout of the navigation systems and of the propulsion system. The radar equipment, which is usually in full view on top of the yacht, is totally integrated and invisible here. Benetti’s engineers have worked with leading aerospace and marine suppliers to devise a totally new way to hide the navigation equipment inside a glass dome, without compromising the control of the yacht and the safety of all the people on board.
Se77antasette stands out for the extreme adaptability of its spaces according to the needs of life on board. The stern entry deck, with three complete openings, is transformed into a huge terrace that overlooks the surrounding sea, becoming an exclusive spa area dedicated entirely to rest and relaxation. The ability to open up and embrace the sea or remain a closed, intimate space makes this one of the most exclusive areas on board. Here guests can relax in the freshwater swimming pool and have a massage, or alternatively use it as a gym or a place to work in a relaxing environment.
Designed to cater to the needs of the businessman, the yacht also lends itself perfectly to conducting business, and an area has been set aside for this purpose with a 270-degree view of the sea, where the owner can organise events, presentations, or private meetings.
The central area on the Se77antasette, with a double-height space in the heart of the ship and a visual link between each deck, opens up to create spaces that are unprecedented for most yachts of this size. Depending on its use, the saloon can be fully transformed into an open dining area for breakfast with all the family, into a screening room, into a theatre or into a dancefloor with a strobe light disco ball in the middle and a DJ station for partying with friends.
The master suite on the Se77antasette, situated in the forward area of the main deck, is a 100-square-meter apartment, plus 140 square meters of private outdoor space. Inside there are plans for a hi-tech studio/office to stay connected from anywhere in the world. The made-to-measure wooden bed is situated in the center of the room, with sofas on either side and a walk-in wardrobe. The large marble bathroom has a view of the sea and private shower and toilet rooms. The terrace in the bow is furnished with comfortable sofas and even has a private 1.5 meter deep swimming pool. The space is also equipped with a floor lifting system that transforms it into a heliport to land and take off.
The two VIP cabins and four guest cabins are on the lower deck.
The first two, with walk-in wardrobe and his & her bathroom, have a full-height sliding glass panel that provides access to the private terrace, fitted with a telescopic system. The guest accommodation, on the other hand, is in the center of the ship and it too has a glass panel fitted with a sinusoidal structure that can act as a seat and table, offering a view of the sea like no other.
The observatory, on the upper deck, is the best hidden and most intimate space on Se77antasette. It consists of 8.5 meters long glass slabs on which severe stress tests have been performed to guarantee their strength. The uprights contain air conditioning ducts to keep the temperature and humidity constantly under control, while at night the dome can be used as an augmented reality screen, controlled by voice commands and movement sensors, so to always be informed on the position of the hull and a breathtaking view of the starry sky.
It will be fitted with 5 variable speed Caterpillar generators, 4xC32 (1048 ekW @ 2300 rpm) and one C18 (563 ekW @ 2100 rpm) coupled with two twin counter-rotating screws pods (1700kw each), driven by permanent magnet motors. The variable speed generators allow the use of the full power available from the diesel engine and in addition requires less space in the engine room. Another advantage of the variable speed generators is the efficiency in sharing loads through the various operational modes (cruise, anchor…). This power flexibility allows to get lower exhaust emissions. The propulsion system delivers a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 5,000 miles at 12 knots, and welcome up to 12 guests on board, with accommodation for 19 crew members on the lower deck.
