Eurocraft is quite young compared to most superyacht shipyards, having been founded in 1989. It started out as a subcontractor to other Italian yards and has since switched production to fully custom yachts of its own. Those yachts include Baron Trenck, an expedition-style megayacht from 2011 that charters. Planned for completion this year is Eldoris, pictured here, a 141-footer (43-meter) created in conjunction with Federico Fiorentino.
In fact, Eldoris resulted from a chance meeting between Marcello Zangrandi, the general manager of Eurocraft, and Fiorentino himself. The Federico Fiorentino studio, founded in 2004, has turned out a number of production and racing powerboats plus tenders. It turned to megayacht design in 2013, right in time for Fiorentino to meet Zangrandi.
Eldoris is based on a hull and engineering platform that Eurocraft previously employed, married to the design studio’s styling. The forceful, bullet-like shape of Eldoris matches well to her intended performance and the designer’s background. The all-aluminum megayacht should see a top end of 30 knots. Cruising speed should be a still-swift 24 knots, with 3,648-hp MTUs. Both Eurocraft and Federico Fiorentino intend Eldoris to rival longstanding speedy superyachts.
Speed is all for naught if the yacht isn’t comfortable. Prior to constructing Eldoris, Eurocraft and Federico Fiorentino spent a good deal of time analyzing vibration and sound reduction. Also of note, the yacht incorporates a sprinkler fire-suppression system, beyond the requirements of Lloyds and the MCA Code. All of this should give peace of mind to the owner’s party of 10, plus seven crew.
Eurocraft began Eldoris on spec and wishes to complete it with a buyer. The interior is therefore still unfinished. It can be tailored with Federico Fiorentino or a designer of your choice.
