Since unveiling its first 85m Supply Vessel concept to wide acclaim, Rosetti Superyachts has been analysing the market to develop custom solutions that meet the needs of today’s discerning owners. The results of this research is a new innovative concept that combines the brand’s technical expertise with the design flair of Tommaso Spadolini.
48M SUPPLY VESSEL
With elegantly understated exterior styling and signature strip windows by the renowned Italian designer, the 48m Supply Vessel is a sub-500GT, ‘pocket-sized’ version of her larger cousin.
“Incorporating the philosophy of our 85m Supply Vessel into a 48m yacht of less than 500GT was quite a challenge,” says Fulvio Dodich - RSY partner and chairman. “It meant optimising the interior and exterior layout to ensure efficient use of space, while maintaining independent circulation flows for guests and crew. At the same time, we were able to offer custom options to suit the lifestyles of different owners and enhance the yacht’s flexibility.”
The open aft deck of almost 18m in length, for example, provides adventurous owners with the required space for carrying large tenders or for touch-and-go helicopter operations (the yacht could also be built to Ice Class criteria). Alternatively, it can be used as an open-air beach club with infinity pool – and a second spa pool on the sundeck – along with socialising spaces and entertainment features.
In terms of interior layout, owners can choose to have the master stateroom on the upper deck overlooking a private aft deck, or a full-beam suite on the main deck forward with study, separate walk-in wardrobes and His and Hers bathrooms. In this version, the upper deck serves as a skylounge with al fresco dining facilities. The accommodation for eight guests on the lower deck comprises four generous cabins with en suite bathrooms.
Smooth service is ensured with independent crew access to guest areas and spacious pantries on the main and upper decks, both served by a dumb waiter from the large galley. For operational efficiency, the chef engineer’s cabin is next to the engine room and the captain’s cabin behind the bridge. There is also a dedicated laundry room on the lower deck.
Powered by twin MTU 12V2000M72 engines (1080 kW @ 2250 rpm) or by 2 X CAT C32 970 (KW 2100 rpm – B RATING), the 48m Supply Vessel will have a top speed of 16 knots and cruise at 14 knots.
“This new proposal illustrates the ability of Rosetti Superyachts to meet market aspirations for custom vessels, without compromising on construction quality and seaworthiness,” concludes Dodich.
