viareggio like monaco

Strolling along the Versilia Yachting Rendez-Vous area, the feeling perceived is in more ways than one similar to the one perceived at the Monaco Yacht Show. Yes, they’re two events that based on a first impression would seem scarcely comparable. The Monaco one held in Port Hercule attracts shipyards from all over the world and has by now collected a longstanding tradition, while the one in Tuscany is only at its second edition and its ranking in the international Yacht Show scene is still to be defined while possessing ample margins in which to grow. And yet comparing them is not so rash. For the yachting world, both these venues represent the yachting elite in their own special ways. Monaco, for its lifestyle which attracts much of the jet-set and…

custom line 106’

Custom Line 106’ presented at the latest Miami Yacht Show is Francesco Paszkowski’s second project designed for Gruppo Ferretti. This new yacht comes after the existing 120’ with some of the previous model’s features, while emphasizing several brand traits and introducing new stylistic elements to reduce apparent distance which has been dividing the interiors from the exteriors thus enhancing a sense of continuity. The entire project has been developed to privilege this aspect where the external contours and the interiors are very close to harmonize shape and functional purpose. The silhouette stands out with a magnificent unique strip of glazed cut glass built into the topsides and the main deck; while the absence of a rail normally seen on the external perimeter of main decks underscores the will to remove the…

benetti oasis 135’

Oasis 135’ is Benetti’s Class line new 41 metre displacing yacht project with hull and superstructure in fibreglass (GRP) conceived to slot into a special niche of the market intended for discerning owners with a very personal concept of life on board. Oasis 135’ as the name suggests wants to be an islet where to enjoy well being and restful, even secluded moments. This well known Italian shipyard turned to the British RWD studio to handle the exteriors while the New York Bonetti/ Kozerski studio mapped out the interiors which prioritize undeniable elegance and refined taste without being formal. What makes this project stand out from the chorus line is the undeniable visual continuity between interior and external spaces which convey a feeling which comes close to that of a large…
