Fincantieri and Pininfarina introduce the Ottantacinque
Monaco - Arab Today
The Ottantacinque is 85 meters long, weighs 2460 tons, boasts five decks and several swimming pools yet still somehow manages to blend form and function.
Unveiled on Wednesday at the 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."
And 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.
For Pininfarina, the project was all about the technology of beauty and distilling its understanding of the super rich in a way where simplicity and cleanliness always trumps complication and obvious design.
"The result is a sculptural floating home with elegant and dynamic areas, where style meets function, aerodynamics, on-board comfort, ergonomics. Every detail is designed to harmonize with the aesthetic theme of the yacht," said Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Pininfarina Group.
