Christian Grande’s big ideas

This 71-foot catamaran by designer Christian Grande may well be the yacht world’s response to the slow-food movement. It celebrates going slow and making time to enjoy nature and family. Nothing will escape guests on board this boat. Even the floor is put to good use to showcase the elements. A glass panel between the two hulls will allow everyone to look at the sea below, an amazing spectacle, especially at night with the underwater lights switched on. There is nothing harsh about the design. The yacht’s exterior lines and surfaces are gently curved as if shaped by wind and water. The colors used (bronze, champagne and brown) were borrowed from the beaches and rocky coasts of the Mediterranean. With a maximum beam of 31 feet 5 inches, the main salon will be the favorite gathering place for the family. Three cabins, including a full-beam master stateroom and a children’s cabin equipped with foldaway beds, will accommodate up to six people. The Picchio Boat will be equipped with IPS (two Volvo Penta IPS1200), chosen for their efficiency and ease of operation.
