Please raise your hand if you haven’t heard the name Pininfarina associated to design? Well if you haven’t raise your hand you probably have never seen a Ferrari car because Pininfarina designed almost all of them.
Pininfarina hasn’t done much in the yachting industry or at least not as much as his reputation in the top luxury design world would suggest.
But here it is a project that caught our eye. It’s called project Aurea and sits in the 70-meters size range.
Rossinavi has intelligently teamed up with Pininfarina to bake a brand new project and in our view a fresh approach in yacht design that seems to recall the grandeur of ancient Rome.
Rossinavi says the yacht will have a diesel-electric propulsion system amidships to also free up space in the aft for a ‘biggest in class’ beach club.
We have to admit the below image really caught our attention because for once it was envisioned with the moonlight rather than the sun. Whoever of you as enjoyed sailing at night knows that nights at sea can be the most stunning show mother nature is able to give.
According to Superyacht world: “Project Aurea’s guest cabins are on the main deck. Much emphasis has been placed on outdoor guest spaces, with a longitudinal balcony covering a folding bulwark to offer guests a private outdoor space. in the lines of the hull you can see something of Pininfarina’s iconic car designs, with the aerodynamic shape going from the bow to the stern.”
We instead are vey curious to see whether the legendary skills of Pininfarina for creating aerodynamic lines will translate in an unusual use of open spaces while the vessel is on the move.
