Rossinavi, an internationally recognised superyacht company, presented a new concept at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2016, which was just recently held in Florida. The new concept called “Attitude” is a very special project of a famous designer and interior creator Carlo Colombo, with an architecture studio A++. The amazing trio of Rossinavi, Carlo Colombo and studio A++ developed a totally new superyacht concept with an internal volume under 500 Gt, which combines high performance with high-end design and professionalism in the yacht construction industry, and has a great potential to become a naval icon.

Written by Eva Belanyiova

The 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show saw Oceanco unveil its latest mega yacht project, the 102m PROJECT SPECTRUM with unveiling performed by Efrem “Skip” Zimbalist III, President/CEO of Show Management. Designer, Mario Pedol of Nauta Design was present at the debut to talk about Spectrum and its features.

Project SPECTRUM by Oceanco

Project SPECTRUM by Oceanco

Created by renowned Nauta Design and Oceanco, SPECTRUM offers endless possibilities when it comes to her living areas as well as her propulsion system. Following an extensive hull form research, the yacht has a refined hull shape, which in combination with the hybrid propulsion system allows her to cruise in a range of efficient modes. Sleek and aerodynamic profile provides for lower resistance in the water.

Spectrum spreads over five extensive decks with an excellent flow between the yacht, its indoor and outdoor areas as well as the surrounding environment. As aboard many modern yachts and latest concept, we will see plenty of large windows and large balconies all assisting in providing the vessel with huge amount of daylight and spectacular views, very much appreciated by today’s owner or possibly charter guests.

Some of the most impressive features from the guests’ point of view would include the lower deck sauna, steam room, beauty treatment area, massage rooms with two terraces which open symmetrically port and starboard from the massage room and gym areas.

The upper deck is entirely dedicated to the owner and provides fantastic panoramic views forward fro the master suite as well as direct access to a private spa pool and sitting area.

A yacht of this size is naturally equipped with the more-and-more popular touch-and-go heli-landing pad found on the forward deck. The aft area offers another saloon and bar area, which can also act as part of the owner’s private area or be opened up to other guests on board. Great al fresco dining possibility is offered by the secluded owner’s deck aft.

The bridge deck is the home to the command centre with a vast helm area, two wing stations and a Portuguese bridge. All five decks are conveniently connected by means of an elevator. The aft area of the bridge deck houses yet another saloon for socialising as well as a 3m x 3m Jacuzzi on the aft deck.

The 334-foot (102m) mega yacht project Spectrum is LY3 compliant and provides variety, flexibility and continuity. SPECTRUM represents a range of colours produced by subtle variations of wave length – just like a rainbow – offering many great possibilities.
