Centouno Navi reveals more details about 28m Forza
New Viareggio-based yacht brand Centouno Navi has revealed more details about its 28 metre concept Forza.
Capable of reaching top speeds of 60 knots, the yacht’s design is a collaborative effort between designer and entrepreneur Manuela Lucchesi and naval architect Marco Arnaboldi.
The yacht’s hybrid carbon composite construction is 30 per cent more lightweight than comparable models, while hydrojet propulsion is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 50 per cent.
Meanwhile, the “overall efficiency” of the model is estimated at 74 per cent at 50 knots.
Speaking about the design, Arnaboldi said: “I’ve been building boats for more than 30 years and I know what owners want. Speed and efficiency are often at the top of the list because it means they can cover more ground in less time and do it with minimal environmental impact.”
An increased eco focus is a core principle of the yacht’s design and construction. The hybrid sandwich construction provides less drag and better lift, while the bespoke interior uses sustainably-sourced and recyclable materials where possible.
“Centouno Navi is all about respect for the sea,” said Manuela Lucchesi. “The design and engineering of Forza is the result of the combined experience of the brand founders, who have lived by the sea and on boats all our lives.”
The hydrojet propulsion also provides increased speeds, faster acceleration, less noise and a safer experience compared to conventional propellers.
Onboard highlights include a swim platform and a large aft deck sunpad with space for stowing a tender below. Fold-down bulwarks provide additional space and enhance the connection to the water.
A hardtop covers a generous saloon with sliding doors that lead onto the aft deck. Below deck, the yacht has been conceived with a four-cabin layout with a full-beam owner’s cabin amidships, a VIP suite forward and two additional cabins. A further two crew cabins can be accessed via the bow.
The yacht is the younger sibling of the larger 39 metre concept called Etera, which has a similar design with a focus on speeds.
