Stella di Mare is a 40m explorer yacht built by CBI Navi after a design by HydroTec (exterior design/naval architecture) and Fossati Design Bureau (interior).

The European owner wanted an ocean-going yacht with value and less “fashion” that connects three family generations from seven to 75 years. The youngest generation has an area that meets its style with comic and cartoon designs (even in kids’ areas, not the typical style of high-end luxury yachts). The father wants to work onboard to manage the business from a professional studio. Last but not least, to meet the grandfather’s lifestyle of fine wine and good food, the yacht is equipped with a wine cellar with a capacity for 800 bottles.

The main deck features the main saloon with a dining room, galley, main lobby, and master suite. The lower deck has four guest cabins, and the crew area has three cabins, laundry, and the crew mess. The captain has a separate cabin on the upper deck. There is also a family/TV room.

Alongside the air conditioning system, the yacht is equipped with an extra heating system when the boat is underway in extremely cold regions.

Other goals were large exterior and interior space, a timeless design, and a transatlantic range for long cruises. Stella di Mare has a fuel capacity of 75,000 liters and is powered by two Caterpillar C32 with a power of 746 kW each at 1600 rpm. The displacement yacht has a maximum speed of 14.5 knots and a cruising speed of 10 knots.

The sundeck has a fixed bimini, an area for a gym, and sunbeds. Moreover, there is access to the crow’s nest to enjoy a 360-degree view during the journeys.

A tender is stored on the bridge deck aft, and another storage for toys is in the lazaretto aft. There is also a workshop for more minor repairs. A rescue boat has been placed forward under the sunbathing area.
