The two Italian houses have come together to design an 85-metre superyacht.
Characterised by her large aft deck space, the 85-metre Ottantacinque is a striking project that opens up the interior and exterior spaces. The twin aft pools are flexible, and the water level can be adjusted and even emptied completely to create a large entertainment platform spanning 160 square metres.
Accommodating up to 14 guests, the yacht enjoys five decks, including a private owner’s deck, the aft of which enjoys its own infinity pool. Forward there is a large private veranda-style space, with dining capabilities, sun pads and a Jacuzzi.
The bridge deck above has a helipad and direct lift access through the guest spaces. On the main deck below there are a further six guest cabins and a large lounging and dining area which opens out onto the aft deck space. One of the stand-out areas of the yacht is the beach club, much larger than the average at more than 170 square metres. The transom and various side doors open outwards, creating platforms out over the sea and bringing natural light into the space. The pool above allows natural light to fall over the bar, albeit with a constantly rippling turquoise tinge. The area leads into a large spa and even a dedicated diving station.
Ottantacinque will have a top speed of 18 knots delivered by twin diesel engines, with a range of 6,000 nautical miles at 12 knots. She will cruise with 19 crew.
“The result is a sculptural floating home with elegant and dynamic areas, where style meets function, aerodynamics, on-board comfort and ergonomics. Every detail is designed to harmonize with the aesthetic theme of the yacht,” says Paolo Pininfarina, chairman of Pininfarina.
This is not the first time the two companies have successfully come together: they created the amazing 60-knot gas-turbine-powered Destriero in 1991.
Of Ottantacinque, Giuseppe Bono, CEO of Fincantieri, says: “Thanks to this stunning project, resulting from the partnership with Pininfarina, not only do we enhance our position in the sector with the highest industrial level collaboration, but also we are an Italian real point of reference in a market that, as all luxury niches, highly demands the capacities and taste of our country.”
