Recently we reported on the Lamborghini Yacht concept from Italy’s Mauro Lecchi and exotic auto tuner Fenice Milano. Now the design duo are offering for sale a slightly more subtle luxury creation, the Diamond 44 Yacht from the T.I.C. Italian Style shipyard.
The materials used to make the yacht has been inspired or borrowed from the aerospace industry to keep the craft light without compromising on its strength or durability. They have used an innovative high tech mix of materials. RINA certified wood has been used along with carbon fiber, kevlar, fiberglass, epoxy resin and other materials. In any case, the net result has been remarkable.
The Yacht’s interior has opted for an open plan scheme and that is one of the reasons why you feel that it is a much larger yacht than its actual size. The furnishings are flexible and can be adapted and adjusted as per the occasion. Fenice Milano employs the same techniques used on their souped-up version of the Rolls-Royce Ghost and other over-the-top vehicles to outfit the sleek ship, equipped with 8 berths.
Because of the lightweight construction, the twin Volvo Penta IPS engines rated at 870 hp apiece are able to propel the yacht at an impressive max speed of 41 knots and cruising speed of 37 knots. The Diamond 44 superyacht, is currently for sale via global online luxury marketplace JamesList for about $1.4 million.
