Rossinavi has presented a new 164-foot (50-meter) superyacht concept, called Alfa that they are developing collaboration with Enrico Gobbi, Founder of the Venice-based architecture studio Team for Design.
Alfa’s sporty style was inspired by the Italian luxury car brand, Alfa Romeo, founded in the early 20th century. Alfa Romeo’s unmistakable front radiator grille is echoed in Alfa's straight and rigorous bow, made of steel and pronounced forward lines.
Alfa is a sports boat, under 500 GT, with sleek and sporty lines, featuring a number of large windows from which to enjoy some incredible panoramic views from the main areas, such as the upper deck, the owner's cabin, the main deck saloon and the cabins dedicated to the guests. The presence of windows rising from floor- to- ceiling, a distinguishing characteristic of many projects signed by Enrico Gobbi/ Team for Design for Rossinavi, is a recurrent feature of the Alfa. One of Alfa's points of strength, also introduced in other recent Rossinavi projects, is the presence of an owner's stateroom that boasts two balconies that reach the main deck. The smaller balcony overlooks the port side of the boat, while the one on the starboard side extends over the full beam to give even more space to the cabin, allowing a superior panoramic effect. The window continues on the bow past the owner's cabin as in a balustrade and opens up into a private area that can also be used as a gym.
Countless details of Alfa have been inspired by the design of vintage and sports cars. In the grids, both aft and mid-brand, the predominant color is anthracite, the signature color of steel car grids.
Alfa's also features a series of important innovations with particular attention to the stern area. At the stern, is the upper deck cockpit, with easy access to the lower level from which one can literally touch the sea. There is a two-story space including a swimming pool with a waterfall feature, sundeck area and lounge.
Alfa has an aggressive front end due to the particularly high hull at the bow. To be able to fit the considerable height of the owner's cabin and the entire bow area, the latter is pronounced forward, but descends as it goes aft making it particularly streamlined.
