Cantiere Navale Cerri in Italy is expanding its product line with the addition of Navetta, a new line of yachts in steel and aluminium ranging 24m-35m in length designed by Studio Spadolini.
Navetta joins Phileas, a new series of steel and aluminium Expedition boats, and the restyling of the 102’ Flyingsport line.
“This Navetta represents yet another step forward in Cerri’s evolution, on the way to becoming one of the leading players on international markets,” comments Cerri’s CEO Diego Michele Deprati.
“We have breathed new life into some of Cerri’s historical projects, such as the 102′ Flyingsport, and introduced two new product lines, the Explorer and this Navetta, in just two months. I think our flexibility, together with the large variety of our products, is a real competitive advantage on an increasingly demanding market. This is a challenge we have taken up with great enthusiasm, but also very humbly”.
Flexibility and great functionality are the key features of Cerri’s new production strategy. The shipyard claims the new range of products results from a renovated, and highly experienced and strongly motivated management. In addition, the shipyard says it can now meet the needs of an increasingly demanding clientele in an extensively differentiated way.
The new Navetta is designed by architect Tommaso Spadolini in two different lengths: 24 metres (or 27m, depending on the flag the yacht will fly) and 35m.
Spadolini explains the challenge was to ensure on a 35m-long craft the spaciousness and comfort that one normally finds on larger yachts.
The interior layout is certainly unusual for a yacht of this size. The main deck is entirely reserved for the guests and includes the master stateroom and two VIP cabins; two more VIP cabins are located amidships on the lower deck, to which access is gained via a dedicates staircase. The yacht can accommodate 10 passengers.
On the lower deck are the crew quarters, featuring two double cabins, a separate galley, the crew mess, the laundry, and a cold room, as is the standard on larger boats. The captain cabin is located on the upper deck, behind the pilot station.
All areas have been specially designed to ensure maximum brightness, thanks to the large glazed surfaces and the natural light that flows through the central skylight on the fly deck.
The Navetta can be equipped with 2 CAT C18 Acert (or two MTU 8V 2000 engines), allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 14 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots.
A similar philosophy has been applied on the 24 m sister ship, which comes in steel and aluminium or entirely in aluminium.
Cantiere Navale Cerri has been part of the Gavio Group since 2011. The company operates a modern production plant in Carrara- Avenza.
