ITALY, Viareggio. In collaboration with Brenta Design, Logica Yachts has launched its fourth mid-range yacht concept. The 41.5m Logica 135 is a steel and aluminium full displacement “owner driven project”, according to Brenta Design’s art director Lorenzo Argento.

When the Logica range was originally conceived Brenta Design had never been involved with powerboats before, explains Argento. “We were asked to design a gentle displacement yacht, opposed to the typical performance sailing yachts that we had been involved with.” This yacht was not designed to be the vessel crashing about in the bay. “In terms of performance, power, noise and look this yacht is designed to be respectful of her environment, be it a bay or marina,” continued Argento.

From this starting point the entire range was conceived and now the developments are a case of adapting the line to suit perspective owners, the main theme being the social and comfortable amalgamation of the interior and the exterior. “You can’t tell where the house stops and the boat begins,” said Argento. “It is an owner driven project; very often you get brokers involved, project managers and captains. Ultimately we are trying to serve what the owners want – enjoyable, family dependent space.”

The Logica 135 features a large owners suite with a private deck forward that looks out onto a swimming pool and social area. Two VIP cabins and two guest cabins on the lower deck minimise discomfort for guests, a crew of seven will also be housed on the lower deck. The main deck and upper deck both feature large salons to maximise social areas.

A large side garage can accommodate a 6.3m tender and underneath the bow floorboard an additional 4.3m tender and two jet skis can be stored. She will be able to reach a top speed of 16.3 knots with a cruising speed of 14 knots using two MTU 12V 20000M72’s or MAN D 2862 LE 463’s.

Brenta Design and Logica have kept the looks and the lines of the Logica 135 clean and pure. “If you get a child to draw a vessel, he will draw a powerboat – simple lines with a chimney. We have ultimately tried to give back that kind of simplicity,” concluded Argento. “After all a boat is a boat, and it should retain the physics and characteristics of a boat.”
