Italian shipyard Rossinavi and Camper & Nicholsons collaborate on Infinity, a brand new concept in superyachts.
The collaboration between Rossinavi, one of the leading builders of custom super-yachts in the world, and Camper & Nicholsons has just been presented at 2019 Palm Beach International Boat Show (March 28-31). The Infinity boat concept started from a sharp line that connects two windows; one looking out into the horizon and the other one pointing towards the bow into the beach club and owner’s entertaining area.
‘With Infinity we wanted to overcome the challenges of allowing wide common areas for entertaining within a possibly limiting sporty design. The sporting spirit of the project nevertheless maintains Rossinavi’s high standards in terms of comfort and sea attitude,’ says Federico Rossi, COO of Rossinavi.
Infinity features Rossinavi’s typical sporty lines for a high-performance boat. Fast displacement hull, charming lines and wide outdoor areas on the upper deck are the signature of this design, with exteriors and full custom interiors designed by Italian architect Fulvio De Simoni.
‘We have analyzed which could be a style mark for the future. Infinity defines a new sportive and elegant design with very strong character that links together boats between 40 and 67 meters. We realized that there was a gap in the market for this particular boat concept and decided to develop Infinity. This design range will include four boats; four different experiences out in the sea,’ says Fulvio De Simoni.
The fast displacement hull allows reaching over 20 knots of speed preserving at the same time very limited consumption at low speeds, as in a displacement boat. Infinity’s high stability also in rough seas allows to have the owner cabin in the upper floor of the boat. Internal noise levels within Infinity are extremely low and far exceed the values of similar classic displacement boats. The versatility of Infinity is also evident from its hulls thought both for transoceanic navigation as well as shallow waters thanks to its draft between 7 and 8 feet.
For this collaboration, Camper & Nicholsons will market and exclusively distribute for the territory of the Americas the Rossinavi-built Infinity series as well as provide expert guidance to owners – as the global leader in all yachting services.
‘This collaboration further expands Camper & Nicholsons’ focus on our New Build division. With over 200 years of heritage and nautical know-how, we are the subject matter experts to help clients build the boat of their dreams. A yacht often takes years to build and features thousands of components, so the purchase of such an asset requires the best advice and that is what we bring to the table,’ says Paolo Casani, Chief Executive Officer, Camper & Nicholsons, International.
Beyond buying and owning a yacht there are important considerations for how to make sure the asset retains and gains value. Through this partnership, the purchase of an Infinity yacht will not only include top technical and design components but also expert help to navigate the complicated world of insuring, managing and making it profitable.
