The Milanese studio produces projects of elegant and high-performance sailing boats, motor boats of all sizes, tenders and explorers. Holistic projects where internal and external are in total connection. And with the same fil rouge that places man and his bond with nature at the center of the project

Nauta Design is one of the most eclectic design studios on the international scene. For almost forty years it has fulfilled the dreams and desires of passionate sailors, lovers of motor navigation as well as visionary owners.

Founded in 1986 by Mario Pedol and Massimo Gino, the Milanese studio produces projects of elegant, high-performance sailing boats and motor boats of any size. Even the exterior of the largest private yacht in the world, Azzam, 180 meters, was drawn on their tables.

In short, from the tender to the megayacht or, to paraphrase the 1952 slogan of Ernesto Nathan Rogers, from the spoon to the city ! And just as the common method then, both for the design of small objects (tenders) and entire cities (gigayachts), provides that function is a priority and man al center of the concept.

Different projects, with a common stylistic code that harmonizes exteriors and interiors. Nauta Design is perhaps the only yacht design studio that can boast this eclecticism; this is also thanks to the experience gained in the sailing field that has extended to the motor navigation sector, contaminating two worlds.

"In 2008, with the 80 LIGHT concept, we asked ourselves a question: what is true luxury?", explains Mario Pedol. "As sailors as we are, we had no doubts: contact with the sea. And so our new research began". Which finds expression in recent creations.

In this regard, the speech on Masquenada is interesting. The project is a refit of a 51-meter motor recently purchased by Pier Luigi Loro Piana (entrepreneur and highly experienced sailor) who was planning a cruise around the world.

The main deck aft has been redesigned: the owner asked for the creation of an open beach club, with easy access to both the sea and the main saloon. Thus, the stern bulwarks were cut to have a flush deck with no obstructions to view, and the area was transformed into a real bathing platform pieds dans l'eau.

The spaces on the two upper decks, upper and bridge decks, have been lengthened by 1.5 meters towards the stern and the profile is thus more graceful.

Fully opening stern also on Project 2024, gigayacht of 72.60 meters designed for the Dutch shipyard Feadship: in practical, the stern bulwarks opening and developing collapsible terraces overlooking the sea create a real luxury area on the water, renamed 'The Island'.

This area includes a swimming pool, convivial areas and sun area in connection with the interior forming a single beach club area in which outdoor and indoor spaces are in direct connection with each other and with the surrounding environment.

Connections in and out also in the gigantic owner's suite which in addition to having huge windows includes a balcony and an opening that connects with the entire private 'Owner' deck forward of the upper deck, a private area with swimming pool and sun loungers.

A perfect example of spatial interconnection even on smaller boats is the Bénéteau Grand Trawler 62, a type of sturdy, reliable and boat for long voyages and of which Nauta Design has curated external and internal lines.

A model that the market has already greatly appreciated given that 14 units have already been sold, of which 8 have been delivered. Everywhere large windows and light inside, the sea can be perceived in every environment.

Contact with the sea might be taken for granted on a sailboat, but on the new Southern Wind 105 GT Taniwha of 32 meters Nauta Design has brought many design innovations, with figures coherent stylistics so that internal and external dialogue in a holistic way.

Below deck, the design is sober, clean, light like the one on deck. The main companionway is transparent and combined with additional skylights and windows, the visual connection with the outside is guaranteed.

The combination of the light teak floor with the fabric-covered wall panels lends additional brightness and tranquility to the interior.
