The harmony between curved and straight lines, nature and technology, gives shape to a unique 65M Explorer Yacht with strong Supply Vessel characteristics.
Innovation has always been inspired by nature and how we adapt to it, especially the challenging conditions at sea. Project “Orca” is a shining example of this inspiration and adaptation.
“Te organic design traits mimic the orca or killer whale, the largest and most powerful member of the dolphin family,” says Fulvio Dodich, Ceo of Rosetti Superyachts. “Instantly recognizable by their distinctive black-and-white coloring, these sea mammals roam the world’s oceans from the Arctic and Antarctic to the Tropics, which is exactly what our Explorer Yacht is designed to do.”
These traits are clearly evident in the robust profile with its wrap-around glazing, bold superstructure styling and a radar mast resembling a tall dorsal fn. And if there any further doubt, there is even a classic white side patch of an orca at the owner’s deck level that lights up at night.
Project “Orca” is the result of a collaboration between two expert groups in the marine feld. Rosetti Superyachts is part of Rosetti Marino SpA, a key player in the construction of high-tech working vessels, with access to exceptional facilities, including a 160 M dry dock and two 100 M construction hangars. Meccano Engineering has been providing specialized engineering and consultancy services to the marine, shipbuilding and energy sectors for the last 20 years.
With a beam of 12 M and an estimated gross tonnage of up to 1300GT, Project “Orca” is developed on four decks plus a tank-top deck, but owners can choose from various deck layouts. Te standard version has an open main deck in the stern for storing more tenders and toys as well as a touch & go helipad. Alternatively, this area can feature an infinity pool overlooking the transom, or have a raised helipad with a pool and spa zone inside.
On the lower deck aft is a large garage that can hold two large tenders or several jet skis and other water toys. Te guest accommodation, comprising two VIP suites and two cabins, is located forward on the same deck level and is served by the main staircase and an elevator that connects with all deck levels up to the sun deck. Te crew accommodation is in the bow.
Te main deck interior hosts the guest area with a large main salon, dining room and another spacious VIP suite forward. On the portside are the galley and crew services.
Access to the mooring deck in the forepeak is via side companionways on the main deck. Tis area, covered for safety reasons in rough seas, accentuates the height of the imposing bow.
Te bridge deck features the owner’s apartment with His and Her bathroom, walk-in wardrobes, a study and a large gym. Te suite overlooks the open aft deck that serves as a private terrace. Te captain’s cabin is behind the wheelhouse.
