Rossinavi has launched the 206-foot Utopia IV at its shipyard in Italy. Previously known as Project Vector, she is being finalized for an American client.
Exterior and interior design — inspired by automotive design — are by Venice-based Enrico Gobbi at Team4Design. Though Utopia IV is most decidedly a yacht, she’s intended to have lines reminiscent of a speedboat.
Four 2,600-horsepower MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines paired to quadruple hydro jets push her to a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots. She can reportedly hit 18 knots using only 35 percent of her propulsion power.
Accommodations are for 12 guests in six staterooms. The owner’s suite has a nearly 20-foot-long balcony and sole-to-ceiling windows.
More key features: A pair of 13-foot sliding glass doors in the salon; three swimming pools on deck; a touch-and-go helipad; and a 750-square-foot beach club aft.
Cruise speed: 24 knots at half-load
Top-end: 28 knots
Range: About 3,300 NM at 12 knots
