Designer and entrepreneur Manuela Lucchesi has established a new superyacht brand CENTOUNO NAVI. Together with naval architect Marco Arnaboldi, founder and former director of AB Yachts, which he created in 1992, the company will apply waterjet technology and sandwich composite construction for fast yachts.
Two new superyacht models of CENTOUNO NAVI will be capable of 58+ knots thanks to waterjet propulsion that provides higher speed, faster acceleration, shallow water capability, greater manovrability, less noise and vibration, as well as lower maintenance and longer engine life. The company will build its new superyacht models using carbon and glass fibre in a hybrid sandwich with vinylster resin and PVC foam core for optimal mechanical characteristics. Both models will have custom interior design and layout options.
At 28m in length, the FORZA is equipped with triple MAN 12V 2000hp coupled to three MJP 450 waterjets for a top speed of 60 knots. With 7,000 litres of fuel in the tank, at a cruising speed of 50 knots she has an exceptional range of 500nm.
The yacht is characterized by a dynamic profile with a low-slung superstructure, open transom and elongated bow. The terraced aft deck features a fixed swim platform, a large sunbed (with room for stowing a tender underneath) and fold-down bulwarks to increase the deck area and contact with the sea. There is another wide sunbed on the foredeck.
The 39-metre ETEREA is a full tri-deck superyacht. Her hybrid carbon composite construction is the same, but she is fitted with four MTU engines of 2,600hp each coupled to MJP waterjets for a top speed of 58 knots and a cruising speed of 50 knots.
Like the FORZA, the ETEREA has the same trademark fold-down bulwarks in the stern. There is also the option of a sunbed arrangement in the bow with an integrated Jacuzzi and room underneath for a crew tender. The large open cockpit provides plenty of room for stowing a guest tender or chase boat on deck.
