New flagship joins Burgess charter fleet
An all-Italian design team recently celebrated the delivery of the 230-foot (70-meter) Numptia, a yacht on the cusp of qualifying for Top 100 status. We caught sight of the vessel in a marina close to the Viareggio-based shipyard, and her dark hull and white superstructure, by designer Tommaso Spadolini, were elegant and impressive. Interior designer Achille Salvagni found inspiration in nature and used natural fabrics and a variety of woods from ebony to subtly bleached teak. Glass, stone and metal finish the yacht to provide a unified whole and a unique environment. Coming up soon at Rossi Navi is a project known as FR025, a 152-foot (46-meter) yacht currently scheduled for a 2012 delivery. Although we do know that Rossi Navi joined forces with Mulder Design for naval architecture and exterior lines and Design Studio Spadolini for interior design, the shipyard has released few other details to date. Rossi Navi is a relatively young shipyard, which had a promising debut with its first yacht, South, featured in Yachts International’s November 2008 edition. More is to come, including a very appealing project, called Ketos by Team for Design, in the works for some time.
