Italian shipyard, Fincantieri Yachts has unveiled its latest concept,the 295 foot/90 meter Linea developed in tandem with British design studio, Claydon Reeves and March & White.
“The aim was to create a superyacht that embodied the great classic Italian traditions combined with a modern design sensibility,” comments Fincantieri. “The use of space, the nature of life on the sea and the lifestyle that can be achieved has led to an exterior design that is intriguing in detail and pure in its concept.”
Linea is certainly a yacht focused on the outdoors. Its stern features not only an extended beach club complex with full gym, but also three foldout platforms along the yacht’s sides. The amphitheater-style Jacuzzi on the stern deck provides exceptional views of the water while allowing owners and guests to watch the onboard cinema at night. The upper sundeck sits like an eagle’s nest high above the yacht, with a hot tub for periods of prolonged relaxation beneath the radar arches. On the deck below is a circular seating area surrounding a fire pit. This area accesses the upper saloon, which is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows.
“Perhaps the most unique feature is the owner’s forward deck, which can be privately accessed through the master cabin,” says co-designer James Claydon. “This space has been carefully designed so that it is not overlooked by the bridge, providing privacy for the owners.” Compared to most superyachts, this private deck space is vast, with lounges, sunbeds, and a Jacuzzi. Just beyond the owner’s sanctuary is a touch-and-go helipad.
