Zuccon International Project, founded by Giovanni “Gianni” Zuccon and Paola Galeazzi, has designed the 164-foot (50-meter) expedition yacht concept Teseo [for the CRN shipyard] .
Bernardo Zuccon, lead designer of Zuccon International Project, said one of the key elements of the Teseo project is design flexibility. For example, the yacht’s four-deck layout can be configured three different ways.
In one of the designs, an owner’s suite is on the upper deck with an outdoor patio at the stern and an alfresco panoramic dining area. This offers the owner more privacy by having the guest cabins placed on the lower deck.
Another option allows for a main-deck master suite aft and four guest cabins belowdecks, leaving the top deck as a guest area.
The third option is to have the master stateroom along with two guest staterooms belowdecks, leaving the other two guest staterooms on the main deck, and space for a balcony over the sea.
As you can see in the renderings, the Teseo design can house two tenders: 16 and 26 feet in length, and a PWC. The main deck is designed to transform into a lounge area when the tenders are launched.
Zuccon is projecting Teseo to have the same engine specifications as the CRN/Superconero 50-meter project, which features the same hull design.
“It is safe to say that performance and engines [two Caterpillar C32s] would be the same [14-knot cruising speed],” said Caterina Cappiello from Studio Effeerre, Zuccon International Project press office. “Being the project is still a concept, though, future variations still remain as a possibility.”
