The Italian yacht designer Federico Fiorentino from Milan presents a “The Belafonte” – a 50m “modern classic” concept.
The Belafonte concept provides a full aluminum motor yacht with a gross tonnage of under 500 GT. The yacht can reach a top speed of 18 – 24 knots depending on engine configuration.
Ten guests can be accommodated in five cabins, a full beam VIP suite alongside two twins and one double are located on the lower deck, while the owner’s full-beam suite is located forward on the main deck. The owner suite, with its 84 square meters, is one of the biggest in its category and features a separate studio with a folding balcony, two walk-in closets, and two communicating bathrooms.
The main deck of The Belafonte offers a spacious and formal saloon and dining area while the semi-enclosed upper deck is dedicated to more informal social areas with a spectacular sky lounge. Here, an alfresco dining table can accommodate all the yacht guests while on the other side we find a spacious shaded bar.
The Belafonte is characterized by a large amount of open deck space with a large pool on the main deck and a Jacuzzi on the upper deck, both surrounded by big sunbathing areas. For more privacy, we also find a very reserved lounge and sunbathing area located in the front of the upper deck.
But the most particular feature of this yacht is its remarkable exterior design. Striking lines and a unique stem design confer to The Belafonte a spontaneous sense of luxury.
The style of Federico Fiorentino is characterized by a distinctive use of traditional elements such as mahogany cap rails and polished steel particulars, mixed with modern lines concept, conveying past and present into modern yachts with a strong character. The outstanding bow shield featured on The Belafonte is a clear example of such an approach.
