The Italian superyacht builder Rossinavi, the design studio Axis Group Yacht Design, and Horacio Bozzo Design developed a yacht concept for the US-Market called Bahamas Series (40m and 48m).
The 48m unit is an aluminum tri-deck motor yacht with a gross tonnage of under 500 GT. She accommodates up to 10 guests and a crew of 10 (inclusive the captain). The twin Caterpillar C32 engines provide a top speed of 15.5 knots at half load.
Both Bahamas 158 and Bahamas 130 designed for shallow waters with a low draft of just 6 feet (1.80 m) to explore the Caribbean.
The Bahamas 158 has clean and sleek exterior lines. A big infinite pool and a relaxing lounge area dominate the main deck aft area. Ample stairs give access to the swim platform and to the ocean through wide submersible steps. The main salon features deck to ceiling glass windows offering unobstructed views to the exterior.
The upper deck is totally dedicated to the Owner who has a Panoramic cabin forward with a private terrace and exterior Jacuzzi, out of sight of any guest or crew.
The 700 sqft (65 m²) Flybridge accommodates the third pool on board and a comfortable lounge area with an open bar a day head and an open shower area.
The bridge is equipped with the innovative certified “paperless” mapping system “iChart” By Team Italia.
Talking with Horacio Bozzo, the designer of the Bahamas concept, he says:
“Bahamas is a boutique-Superyacht Series with all the characteristics and capabilities to enjoy the Caribbean islands. I found inspiration in the exotic colors and relaxing shapes of the Bahamas islands and purposely designed this Series to enjoy that unique scenario”.
Federico Rossi, the COO of Rossinavi:
“Our new Bahamas Concept is the result of an in-depth market research and our first commitment to the US market. This series of yachts will be built with the highest European quality standards but with US technical specifications”.
The concepts are MCA LY3 and MLC classified. So they are also ready for charter. Rossinavi construction quality and philosophy lead the entire yacht project to include a strong “green thinking” approach. All latest shipyard launching has been awarded Rina Green Stars.
The naval architecture and engineering of Bahamas are being developed by Axis Group Yacht Design who worked also successful with Rossinavi on the 70m Numptia.
