Italian shipyard Rossinavi is proud to announce the delivery of EIV, a full-custom 48.80m superyacht commissioned by an U.S. client introduced by superyacht broker Dean Anthony of Allied Marine's Superyacht Division.
Previously known as Project Vector 50, EIV 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. “The Vector project comes in a 50m version under the name EIV, the "little sister" of Utopia IV. The success of this concept can be found in its balance between a generous layout, which offers several features, and its sporty lines.
Thanks to a fast-displacement aluminium hull, EIV is capable of crossing the oceans and cruising in areas characterised by shallow waters. Performance, luxury and sea-attitude are the key words that best describe this new Rossinavi,” says Federico Rossi, Chief Operating Officer of Rossinavi. A sport design project with the ergonomic space of a full-displacement yacht, EIV incorporates technical advancements including a shallow draft of just over two meters and perfect stability that allows it to easily cruise in the Bahamas and South Florida waters. “The clients vision was to build a high quality, fully customized, 50 meter yacht with features only found on 60 plus meter yachts. The result… Rossinavi exceeded our expectations and - on time!”, says the Owner's Representative.
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.
