New details about Rosetti 52m Supply Vessel Yacht
"The talented young designer Giovanni Griggio, immediately understood the DNA of the company and gave shape to this original and beautiful project", said Fulvio Dodich, RSY CEOThe Rosetti Superyachts shipyard is specialised in the production of steel and aluminium yachts in the 35-140 metre range. The beautiful RSY 52m Supply Vessel Superyacht represents a totally new approach to a category of vessels that Rosetti knows very well. The foundation of the concept behind this 52-metre Supply Vessel, developed by Rosetti Superyachts with the Italian designer Giovanni Griggio, of Phi Design Lab is to combine the functionality typical of a Supply Vessel with the design features and quality finish of a superyacht.“To convey added value to this concept, I decided to introduce design elements characterised by a biomimetic structure in the side of the hull and in several areas in the interiors,” explains Giovanni Griggio. “I was inspired by the venation pattern of leaves. Nature always offers many inspiring tips, especially at a structural level, and we are always ready to learn.”The project is based on a biomimetic concept: it’s inspired by the vein structure of leaves, with stylistic features adopted both on the outer hull and in the interiors. The end result is a yacht which is able to meet all the owner’s needs, even the most demanding ones.An example is the aft tender garage, which can be easily transformed into an 80m2 beach club: the terraces can be opened thus creating an 80 sqm area overlooking the sea. Area of the gym and a spa includes a sauna and Turkish bath, with natural light filtering through the transparent bottom of the swimming pool on the upper deck.The enormous 142 m2 aft deck (typical of supply vessel) can fit a helipad or a swimming pool, with a solarium and a living area. The sun deck offers a dining area and an open-air cinema, with a folding screen.“Our vocation to explore is confirmed in the decision to offer an innovative layout with a more marked character, planned by a young designer who stands out for his creative spirit and initiative”, adds Fulvio Dodich.The 52-metre Supply Vessel has a central living area and an asymmetrical layout on the two sides. The sliding doors completely allow obtaining an open space of the deck and the main salon. The saloon is full of natural light via full-height windows on the hull. Forward of the main deck, the owner has a dedicated area that includes a full-beam suite, walk-in wardrobe, private study, bathroom with double access and private hammam. On the lower deck four double cabins, or twin cabins, can host up to 8 guests. The crew’s area is located on the lower deck and separated, so they can access the guests’ cabins through a service door in the laundry area, so they do not need to walk through the common areas.Last time the shipyard has unveiled two 35- and 50-metres Supply Vessels.@Photos by The Rosetti Superyachts Press Office
Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly's classic Riva yacht to be auctioned in May 2019
RM Sotheby’s has introduced one of the lots of the forthcoming Villa Erba auction. The 1950s Riva yacht, once part of Prince Rainier and Grace Kelly’s fleet, has been put to this years’ bid. The event will take place on May 25, 2019 at the lake Como, Italy.Hull No. 62 out of Riva Tritone series was gifted to the reigning prince of Monaco, H.S.H. Prince Rainier III in early 1958 by a close relative, wealthy Milanese textile industrialist, Mr Gianoglio. The vessel was to represent admiration and gratitude of the presenter.The hull of the yacht christened Via, features red and white stripes on the wood, reflecting the Principality’s livery colours. Via is powered by two Chris-Craft MCL six-cylinder engines of 5.5 litres, each capable of 175 HP at 3,400 rpm. The engines also feature an automatic diverter dubbing the ‘Chris-O-Matic’, launched when auto industry in the USA was fascinated with pushbutton automatic transmission. Via was widely employed by the Prince’s family after his marriage to Princess Grace Kelly in 1956. According to RM Sotheby’s, she also served as the prince’s flagship, flying both the flag of Monaco and the personal flag of the prince.However, Prince Rainier III later replaced Via with a smaller yacht, Riva Junior, used for short trips and water-skiing with Princess Grace and their children. Still, Via remained in their home port, maintained under long-term custodianship of her second owner in Monaco. Several years ago, the vessel was sent to a Dutch specialist for renovation. The refit works took several years, returning the yacht to her original specification, with her original engines restored. The yacht was refurbished, while her Chris-O-Matic transmission was also rebuilt.In 2014, the restored craft was purchased by the current owner, anticipating a returned to the home port of Monaco. Riva Via still represents a symbol of wealth and glamour, embodying the spirit of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace.RM Sotheby’s was incorporated in 1991 as a classic car auction company RM Auctions, with headquarters in Blenheim, Ontario. Since 2015, the company has been partially owned by the world’s one of the most renowned auction houses, Sotheby’s. RM holds the top position in the rating of the most expensive cars ever sold at an auction, with the 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO sold for $48,405,000 in August 2018.
