Italian shipyard Rossinavi has presented with a private ceremony in their facility of Viareggio EIV, a tailor-made superyacht commissioned by a private American owner which signals a major development for the yard.
Previously known as Project Vector 50, EIV is a trideck luxury performance vessel entirely designed with the shipyard’s American client in mind. It is a fusion of Rossinavi’s expertise, Italian interior and exterior design by Venice-based studio Team for Design – Enrico Gobbi plus technological and mechanical components from the United States. Key components and mechanical features as well as the electrical system are made in the USA and US-standard since the vessel will be based in US and Caribbean waters. The attention to US standards is also applied to its ergonomic function and elegant interiors, a response to the clients’ desire and the growing interest in Rossinavi from the American market. “This boat is a step change for Rossinavi. With the increasing and significant interest the shipyard is receiving from the American market, we are constantly working to find ways to collaborate with American suppliers in the production of entirely tailor-made vessels [...] Following on from the success of the first member of the Vector family (a 63m launched in 2018) that was also delivered to an American owner, EIV boasts the same sportive appeal and features of her ‘older sister’ such as the shallow draft which is perfect for the Bahamas. Key elements are the swimming pool on the sundeck, the lift and five cabins including the owner’s master suite at bow” says Federico Rossi, Chief Operating Officer of Rossinavi.
A sport design project with the ergonomic space of a full-displacement yacht and world-class, EIV incorporates technical advancements including a shallow draft of just over two meters and perfect stability that allows it to cruise primarily in the Bahamas, the Caribbean and interior areas of South Florida waters. The unique elements that make EIV one of a kind include timeless elegance of its neat lines and balanced proportions that naturally connect to natural elements bearing stylish details. Inspired by elements of the automotive industry such as the air vent grills of a sport coupé, EIV boasts a well-proportioned and slender silhouette enriched by continuous glass surfaces. Despite its sleek volume, EIV embodies an impressively spacious interior layout that can accommodate up to an owner’s party of 8 in four generous double cabins, situated on the lower deck and each one with en-suite facilities. The full beam master suite is located at the front of the main deck and includes an intimate private terrace on the starboard side.
EIV’s design ensures an ongoing dialogue between exterior and interior thanks to its floor-to-ceiling glass windows along the main deck. Portions of the glass slide open for a flood of natural light and for better enjoying the surroundings. The interior design is a thoughtful mix of contemporary and modern: bright and natural nuances of wood and fabrics cleverly combined with prestigious coating materials, such as onyx and leathers, and sophisticated details in bronzed brass metal. Custom carpentry details by Enrico Gobbi are combined with contemporary European furniture, decorative lighting art pieces and exclusive Italian-made fabrics; the impression is of a relaxed, welcoming, elegant interior with plenty of light. Most of the furniture has been personally designed by Enrico Gobbi and upholstered with high end fabrics of leading international brands such as Hermès, Rubelli and Armani Casa. Class and energy, style and dynamism have been perfectly combined in this grand project that is ground-breaking.

The Rossinavi brand was founded in 2007 upon the legacy of expert welders Fratelli Rossi (Rossi Brothers) who had established a reputation for high-quality metal construction of fishing boat hulls from 1980. This expertise has allowed Rossinavi to maintain a level of quality that sees each ship crafted entirely in-house, at their shipyard in Viareggio. Today, after launching several luxury yachts from 40-70 meters in length, and with several in production, the shipyard enjoys growing recognition for its rapid ascent into the market and its ongoing position as the only family-owned-and-operated superyacht company in Italy.
