Rossinavi returns to the golden age with M/Y 'Tansaray'

Rossinavi's reproduction of the classic FR209, is set to be launched in April, following a technically challenging build whilst maintaining the yacht's classic form.…

Rossinavi’s new project, a 38.6m reproduction, FR209 soon to be christened M/Y Tansaray, will be ready for launch on April 18. Speaking with Rossinavi, a key factor of the reproduction of this build were the technical skills involved.

As a 1930s build, many aspects of the yacht were hand-built by craftsmen and this has meant that it was necessary to be flexible in terms of the yacht's customisation and the overall build process.

Knowledge of the traditional construction method and of materials that are both resistant and high quality but also have a ‘classic’ look was imperative. Subsequently this has required a combination of new technologies and 'ultra-modern' devices whilst still maintaining the appearance of the original vessel.

The metal carpentry in particular, was an important aspect, with many of the single components on the vessel being built from scratch including some of the screws and bolts which, were shaped out of the structural and mechanical components.

G.L. Watson designed the original 1930s vessel, but the reproduction's naval architecture will be completed by Rossinavi and STB Italia with the interior design by Studio Tassin.

The owner requested a style that was cohesive with the exterior of the yacht, a classic reproduction with care taken in the detail and refined features. Her steel and aluminium structure houses two CAT C 18 Acert 2x599 kW and she has a gross tonnage of <300gt.
