Cantiere Navale Italia has entered the European, North American and Far East yacht markets. With headquarters in La Spezia in the Liguria region, the yard produces yachts ranging from 43ft-90ft designed Luca Dini. The company says its all aluminum product line is rich in hi-tech and highly customizable.

Designed by Luca Dini, Cantiere Navale Italia will debut hull 1 of its Baby, a 13m (42ft) tender. The hull is the primary focus of the design. Hull shape is an active part of the boat’s styling: not only does it provide stability and shape, but also represents the spirit of the whole yacht.

The choice of aluminium was of primary importance to the Cantiere Navale Italia. It appeals directly to the most exigent and competent clientele who require an extremely reliable vessel.

Baby was created using the concepts associated with superyacht alloy construction, and concentrating in her size all the characteristics usually found in a larger yacht. Yacht designer Luca Dini describe this project as “a fighter plane without wings”, adding that it is “a sporty boat that has perfect proportions, that really looks like a fighter, powerful and efficient thanks to state-of-the-art technology”. Her hull form is a planing V shape, with a variable geometry 16.8° dead-rise at the stern and lifting strakes to increase dynamic stability.

The internal layout foresees a roomy washroom with separate shower, full accessorized galley and cabin with large double bed, making her a tender completely equipped for short cruises. Her colours have been exclusively created for Cantiere Navale Italia and are an integral part of the boat’s concept.

Baby will be a high performance tender propelled by two Yanmar 370hp diesel stern drives, giving her a maximum speed of 43 to 45 knots.
