With every intention to start 2021 in spectacular fashion, Rossinavi has just launched M/Y Polaris from its Viareggio shipyard. Measuring up to 70 metres in total length, Polaris also marks Rossinavi’s largest superyacht to date. But there’s more to this ship than impressive dimensions alone.
Commissioned by a private client whose brief entailed an “emphasis on yachting lifestyle”, as well as the ability to “easily transition” from the more tropical climates of the Caribbean to sub-zero conditions of polar areas – its ice-class certification is something you only encounter on the most adventurous of luxury superyachts.
Flaunting a refined and exceedingly contemporary profile owed to the design genius of long-time Rossinavi collaborator – Team for Design – M/Y Polaris houses twin MTU 12V 4000 M93L engines capable of generating 3,460 horsepower at 2,100rpm and hitting a top speed of 24.3 knots during sea trials. Performance clearly hasn’t taken a back seat in favour of aesthetics here.
Other standout features include the following:
- dedicated owner’s deck w/ waterfall
- 6-metre infinity pool w/ waterfall
- 3.6-metre spa pool
- an impressive flybridge with a view from 9-metres above water (perfect for entertaining)
- lounging + sunbathing area
- wellness centre – gym, saunsa, hammam, massage room
- soundproof cinema
- “fine & rare” painting selection throughout the interior (two from the 18th century)
- Swarovski artisinal glassworks + chandelier from Austria
- custom 10-metre limo tender
M/Y Polaris can comfortably accommodate for 12 guests and a crew of 17.
As noted by DuPont Registry, at this stage, plenty of specifics regarding Rossinavi’s Polaris are still to come; a more detailed video offering a full tour is expected to arrive shortly.
“After four years under construction, we are extremely proud to present this grand superyacht,” says Federico Rossi, Chief Operating Officer of Rossinavi.
“Polaris is a 70-metre vessel where our construction skills and technical know-how are perfectly combined. The complexity of this project required a very specific phased approach thanks to the skills we have acquired.
“The neat and elegant shapes of the yacht are underlined by long, continuous black window surfaces with curved details that soften up and characterise the overall cleanness of the superstructure,” says Enrico Gobbi.
“Our aim here was to open up the interiors towards the exterior, ensuring an ongoing view of the sea through the decks. This was achieved not by creating huge invasive openings but by instead designing refined, long and slender windows with which we were able to achieve the same goal.”
