• The renowned design house behind more than 100 Ferrari designs to reveal its first yacht with Rossinavi
• At 70 metres, Aurea will have an extended ‘beach club’ area – the largest in its category
• Use of diesel electric propulsion will allow power to be housed in the centre of the boat, freeing up water access and deck space; and
• The main cockpit to be at the stern of the boat, adjacent to the beach club
Turin, June 1st 2017 - Taking inspiration from the lines of the sea and integrating tell-tale fluidity of Pininfarina’s iconic style, Aurea, the first collaboration between the Italian design firm and Rossinavi will focus on the lifestyle of the owner and guests with a record size beach club for a ship of its size. Facilitated by diesel-electric propulsion system housed at the centre of the boat, rather than in the stern area, Aurea’s stern include two swimming pools, three large outdoor decks and an additional water-level access on both sides of the hull.
The project is a design proposition available starting from June 1st 2017, when it will be presented as a world premiere at SuperYacht Gallery, in London, by Rossinavi and Pininfarina.
United by passion and experience in creating custom-made artwork, Pininfarina and Rossinavi create a project that reinterprets innovatively and harmoniously the shapes and the distribution of the volumes of a 70 metres, in particular the superstructures, breaking the traditional bridge pattern simply overlapped in lateral view and tapered in frontal view.
The clever management of full and empty volumes harmoniously connected by elegant and sinuous shapes allows to create both in the interior spaces and in the areas of the bridges some corners of great fascination and particularly suggestive views, offering new and unexpected opportunities to employ and enjoy the spaces and maximizing the thrill of sailing and life on board. At the level of the owner's deck, for example, terraces protected appropriately by front windows open at the center of the ship, with an appeal to the theme of the bow-window, thus giving a direct view to the bow.
The boat's shape is harmonious and dynamic at the same time thanks to the elegant helical bands that characterize the superstructures linking the bridges. The upper band, for example, frames the bridge and then goes downstairs, harmoniously joining the owner's deck, creating a lavish scenic effect that integrates the outer connecting staircases to the upper deck, where Eli-Deck is expected.
