The 45-metre is designed to be be used as an expedition yacht and a support vessel for Perini Navi yachts
Designed by Zuccon International Project for Picchiotti Yachts, the Heritage 45M has been conceived with an unusual dual purpose: an expedition yacht and a support vessel for a Perini Navi superyacht. The layout leaves most of the main deck forward free to accommodate two nine-metre tenders – a sailboat and a motor boat – and two PWCs. The Heritage 45M is the first yacht designed by Zuccon for Picchiotti Yachts. The yacht also serves as tribute to the work of Gerhard Gilgenast, one of the key architects to work with Picchiotti Yachts in the past, with some of his signature style features given a contemporary spin.
Inside, the considerable floor-to-ceiling height and the extensive use of glass create an airy interior space. The areas reserved for the owner and guests are on the lower deck, with a large suite with a private terrace aft. When the tenders are in the water, the forward area on the main deck becomes ab expansive lounging and entertaining area.
“Picchiotti doesn’t need any introduction because it has written an important chapter in yachting history, both in Italy and worldwide. Setting out along this path is a source of pride for our firm, particularly as we are doing so with a project that is both experimental and extremely fascinating, as well as one that wants to pay tribute to an architect that has made an important contribution to Picchiotti Yachts over the years,” says Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon International Project.
