Having the spirit of an explorer and a refined appearance is not for everyone. The new RSY 38m EXP now being built by Rosetti Superyachts has this twofold soul. Its lines designed by Hydro Tec, bold and elegant, at a glance are not exactly those of an explorer ship, yet its numbers speak clearly and not only in terms of performance. “In aesthetic terms it does not conjure up the typical image of an explorer vessel,” explains Andrea Giora, Sales Director and Board Member of RSY, “but with a range of 5,000 nautical miles at 10 knots, extensive stowage facilities that ensure prolonged independence from ports and marinas and palatial internal and external volumes, we can say it fulfils all the main requisites that define this class of yacht.”
RSY 38m EXP boasts almost 3,000 liters of refrigerator and freezer capacity installed both in the kitchen and a technical room on the lower deck, and no less than 700 square meters of floor space between interiors and exteriors. The yacht’s owners, with extensive experience of the sea, played an active part in its design. Their desire was to sail the seas of the world in their yacht. Rosetti Superyachts as a shipyard is able to fulfil this request because it draws on the productive assets and know-how of Rosetti Marino, the parent company and a key player in the construction of rigs and working craft for the offshore oil and gas industry.
The interior design, modern and contemporary in style, is by the Ravenna-based studio BurdissoCapponi Yachts&Design. It features light and dark oak wood and materials set out in their three-dimensions. So, in the design of the ceilings, some parts are lowered to stress the areas below, in a completely free planimetric development, abandoning the logic of symmetry for the sake of a more expressive compositional balance. The spaces they create lend themselves to the decorative setting and in particular the display and showcasing of artworks which, in this way, play their part in the definition of the architecture. The dominant element is the lobby of the main deck: a sculpture is placed in a central position just below the skylight which sheds light from the sundeck to the lower deck, creating an effect of suspension within an ideal prism of light. Light engineering played a significant part in defining the project, first of all by differentiating the general lighting, characterized by a homogeneous and diffused light, from “zonal” light, corresponding to areas with lowered ceilings.
