The Greek shipyard Cosmo Explorer built the 50m I-Nova in 2013 to a Cristiano Gatto design who is responsible for the exterior and interior design.

The yard and designer developed I-Nova as a D0 ice class explorer yacht with extra-thick steel plates and propeller shafts, propellers, sea chests, rudders and steering gear systems, as well as the sea water cooling system to meet the ABS classification requirements.

Cristiano Gatto and his team designed I-Nova for an experienced yacht owner who had own ideas for his perfect yacht. The yacht has five decks with a functional layout, which offers a lot of private space for the owner with a large cabin on the main deck. A private staircase leads to the upper deck with a big private panorama saloon.

Above the Upper Deck is I-Nova‘s Bridge Deck located which housing a well-equipped wheelhouse and two cabins, one for the yacht’s Captain and the other for the Engineer. The panoramic position of the helm station allows perfect visibility further enhanced by the reversed windows, which eliminate all glares from the dashboard.

A large terrace astern with twin tables and sunbeds is the right spot to have breakfast or to dine under the stars. The loose outdoor furniture on this deck, sunbeds, and armchairs belong to Roda’s Mistral and Network collection in natural teak.

Behind the owners’ upper deck is the big storage deck for tenders, which is equipped with a Fabio Buzzi 34 Semi-enclosed rib tender and a Scorpion 8.5 ST rib tender, which can be lowered with the installed 5-ton crane with 9-meter outreach. The storage deck is also suitable as a party deck.

The guests can find a gym, jacuzzi, and sunbathing area on the observation deck.
