Andrea Bocelli’s New Yacht

This Gamma 20, designed by Vripack, is the builder’s most customized ever.

Gamma Yachts calls its boats mini-superyachts because of their level of customization, and Bocelli ordered more personal touches than other previous owners.

Gamma Yachts has delivered its third Gamma 20, a 72-footer christened Libertas that is the builder's most highly customized yet.

The owner is singer Andrea Bocelli, who has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

Vripack designed Libertas, which was built in Holland with interior furnishings and materials from Italy. Gamma Yachts calls its boats mini-superyachts because of their level of customization, and Bocelli ordered more personal touches than other previous owners.

“The main elements of the Gamma 20 that are dictated to a client are the hull and superstructure shape,” Gamma Yachts CEO Guido Bonandrini stated in a press release. “Almost all other aspects can be adapted to the client’s tastes, much like you would expect on a yacht of larger size.”

Bocelli’s requests included a table and sofa forward of the wheelhouse, a custom diving board on the extended flybridge and metallic electric blue hull paint. Standard layout is three staterooms, but Bocelli added a fourth to accommodate a total of nine guests. He also increased the size of the windows in the master cabin, installed a piano and recording-studio equipment in the main salon and chose matte oak paneling with natural oak floors for the interior décor.

“I love the way space has been arranged so that our large, extended family can be together, enjoying closeness and intimacy while at the same time respecting everybody’s privacy,” Bocelli stated in a press release. “Coziness, warm materials, safety, low noise levels and comfort: These were my needs, and they have been fully met.”

Libertas was delivered in 10 months. Gamma also builds a larger model that accommodates 12 guests. More information is at www.gamma-yachts.com.
