Nemo 44 is a new fully custom yacht designed by Fulvio De Simoni. She is an aluminium yacht conceived by MC Yacht & Co International for French shipyard Ocea Yacht. With range of over 4,000 miles, the designer claims Nemo 44 features unprecedented spaces with accommodation for tenders, sailing boats and jet skis.
Francesco Merenda, general manager at MC Yacht & Co. International, explains: “We are proud to announce the birth of Nemo 44, a revolutionary yacht that we classified as SUY (Sport Utility Yacht). Nemo will offer her owner the incredible features in terms of open spaces, amenities and navigation range, all within a length of 44m. The project by Fulvio De Simoni is something really innovative in the segment, with a unique look and many peculiar solutions.”
Design and build partners
Many years of collaboration with Ocea Yacht, a shipyard that specialises in building military vessels and pleasure yachts in aluminium, have led entrepreneur Aldo Manna to make a further step from MC Yacht Srl, his consolidated broker and management company, to launch MC Yacht & Co. International, a firm focusing on building and servicing superyachts. Manna’s MC Yacht Srl has chosen Fulvio De Simoni for the 44m project Nemo.
The first model of the Nemo class is ready to be built. The idea behind Nemo is a yacht that can be enjoyed by her owner as a “floating Resort”.
She has over 300sq m of open-air spaces and onboard amenities including a 25sq m beach club, swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, floating and water toys. Covered and indoor spaces include a 30sq m “loggia”, lounges, wet bars, a 75sq m master suite with his- and her- bathrooms, a gym, and up to five double rooms with private en-suite.
Her aluminium construction, both for the hull and superstructure, allows for under 500 gross tonnage.
In addition to the whole design from Fulvio De Simoni, other partners have been involved in the project such as floating water toys specialist Fun Air.
Nemo is designed to be powered by two relatively small engines, with a total horsepower of 2800mhp, allowing her to reach 16ks in fast-displacement pace, with a cruise speed around 12ks.
“Thanks to the vertical integration inside Ocea Yacht who will build Nemo, we are capable of offering her future owner the chance to fully customise his yacht, still exploiting important economies-of-scale.” Merenda concludes.
More details about her contruction and design will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
