The infinity symbol is an endless loop, balanced at both ends. Yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni draws inspiration from this very same symbol. He incorporates it into each of the four megayachts comprising the new Infinity series from Rossinavi. Not just a design element, the loops frame two important areas of the yachts. What’s more, they’re virtual windows on the world, a pleasing twist on outdoor space.
The series includes the Infinity 42 (above), the Infinity 50, the Infinity 59, and the Infinity 69 (below). They measure 138, 160, 196, and 226 feet, respectively. Each has a high bow and relatively low stern. The endless loop comes into play with the open, arched area aft and the window-like area forward. As striking as the aft loop is, denoting the beach club, the forward section is more intriguing. In fact, it frames an entirely private, full-beam, covered alfresco area for the owners. It’s a twist on the concept of a shaded terrace. At the launch event for the Infinity series, De Simoni told us it fulfills buyers’ desire to enjoy the outdoors without always being in the sun.
Besides sharing the shaded terrace and overall styling, each Infinity series megayacht also has a fast-displacement hull form. Therefore, strong pace and better fuel burn throughout the speed range are priorities. The Infinity 42, for example, should top out around 21 knots and see a best range around 3,600 nautical miles with twin MTUs. The Infinity 69, meanwhile, should see a 19-knot top end and a best range of 4,800 nautical miles with MTU power. Furthermore, since Rossinavi is targeting American buyers, each of the four megayachts has a relatively shallow draft. Therefore, figures range from 6’5” for the Infinity 42 to about 9 feet for the largest model.
Understandably, clients are free to outfit the beach club, the owners’ suite, and other areas as they so wish. Regardless, Rossinavi wanted to entice them with new thinking for time-honored spaces. “With Infinity, we wanted to overcome the challenges of allowing wide common areas for entertaining within a possibly limiting sporty design,” explains Federico Rossi, COO of the shipyard. De Simoni adds, “We realized that there was a gap in the market for this particular boat concept.”
The duo also overcame the challenge of allowing abundant space overall in a possibly limiting design. Despite the low-profile appearance, the largest Infinity yacht actually has four decks.
