Cantieri Navali Cerri to Showcase New 102’ Flyingsport Motor Yacht SEA LOOK during next boat shows season

July 31, 2015

The fourth 102’ Flyingsport motor yacht SEA LOOK will be showcased by the Italian shipyard, Cantieri Navali Cerri (CNN), at the Cannes Yachting Festival, as well as the Monaco Yacht Show, both running in September. Mixing up the comfort of a flying bridge yacht and the sporty character as well as speed of large open crafts, superyacht SEA LOOK is the perfect combination of elegance, style, functionality and onboard liveability.

Created by architect Filippo Rossi, the elegant and stylish interiors of luxury yacht SEA LOOK take inspiration from the natural landscapes and elements of Sardinia: sand, rock, north-westerly wind, the waves, the turquoise sea. The soft harmony of the light colour shades brings a pleasant, relaxing contrast with the bright colours typical of the days spent at sea. All interiors are extremely bright, thanks to a central skylight, characterised by a highly innovative profile. This allows to notably increase the height of the main salon, letting light shine through and flood the entire room.

CCN’s strategic projects for the near future include an additional increase in fibreglass production, as well as the extension of the available product range, which will allow the shipyard to enter the ‘custom-made’ market segment with two fully-custom lines.

The two most successful series – the Cerri 102’ Flyingsport and the Cerri 86’ Flyingsport – will be restyled, preserving their distinctive décor features, but adding a more contemporary touch. Moreover, construction of two new lines of steel and aluminium and/or all-aluminium yachts will begin: a series of small superyachts between 24 and 35 m in length, designed by architect Tommaso Spadolini, as well as a line of 35 m ‘Expedition’ crafts called ‘Phileas’, designed by Studio Vallicelli.
