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 serves as a connection of three family generations from seven to 75 years. The youngest generation has an own area that meets their personal 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 dining, galley, main lobby and the master suite. The lower deck has four guest cabins and the crew area with 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 yacht is underway in extremely cold regions.

Other goals were large exterior and interior space as well as 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 an access to the crow’s nest to enjoy a 360-degree view during the journeys.

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