Attention to detail and the embrace of the latest technologies
The Ottantacinque is 85 meters long, weighs 2460 tons, boasts 5 decks and 2 swimming pools while perfectly blending form and function.
Just unveiled at this years Monaco Yacht Show, the Ottantacinque is a partnership between Pininfarina, the styling studio famed for its work with Ferrari, and leading Italian mega-yacht maker Fincantieri.
“We already are among one of the few mega-yacht builders managing all the business activities, from sales to the product life cycle,” said Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri. “Now, thanks to this stunning project, resulting from the partnership with Pininfarina…we are a real Italian point of reference in a market that, as all luxury niches, highly demands the capacities and taste of our country.”
The attention to detail and the craft’s wholesale embrace of the latest technologies will definitely reinforce Italy’s standing within the industry.
For instance, the Ottantacinque’s main deck boasts twin swimming pools that have been raised so that they’re level with the side bulwark.
This means that those bathing or reclining on sun chairs next to the pool can be sure of an unobstructed sea view. What’s more, the pools’ depth can be adjusted — deeper for serious swimming or completely flat so that the pools become a single 160m platform for hosting parties.
Plans for propulsion and maneuverability currently call for two diesel engines with fixed propellers, bow and stern thrusters, nonretractable fin stabilizers for roll control, and a dynamic positioning system for accurate anchoring. The yacht should have a maximum speed of 18 knots and a range—cruising at 12 knots—of 6,000 nautical miles.
