At this year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri Yachts has revealed the 120m Private Bay yacht concept, co-designed with Horacio Bozzo. The project is developed to offer a new level of onboard privacy while at the same time allowing even greater access to the natural surroundings.
One of the world’s most esteemed yacht designers Horacio Bozzo envisioned the Private Bay as a classically built, six-deck yacht that boasts a 17,7 meter beam and 4,25 meter draft. During the unveiling of the design at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, the designer described Private Bay as a new vision of a megayacht, created for those who want to live close to the sea to enable an authentic experience.
Private Bay’s contemporary profile is promised to be instantly recognised when at sea. Exterior areas are defined by large glazed surfaces and separated by several intimate areas to have one feel as if on a much smaller yacht. There are two large Jacuzzi’s, one on the foredeck and one on the sun deck, both surrounded with large sunpads and relaxation areas. Back aft, the open beach club concept is a unique feature that includes a 160 square metre lounge area with side openable windows, al fresco cinema, and a huge sea level pool with bar. There are also submergible stairs, a platform for gentle access to the ocean, and a generous swim-platform for easy boarding of water toys.
On the inside, this multihull megayacht boasts a voluminous interior totalling 5,400 gross tonnes – more than enough room to host 18 guests and a crew of 31. Daylight from the terraces and balconies illuminates much of the guests’ spaces throughout. The yacht will be powered by a two diesel engine propulsion system driving 2CPP propellors for a top speed of 18.5 knots and a maximum cruising range of 5,500 nautical miles.
