The end of January marked a new beginning for Rossinavi. The shipyard celebrated the launch of the 163-foot (49.7-meter) megayacht Lel, during a private ceremony. She is its first created in collaboration with this particular owner and with the well-known studio Luca Dini Design.
When the shipyard first revealed the project, simply calling her Rossinavi FR038, which is her hull number, only the faintest outline of her profile was public. The footage below from her launch and christening ceremony, however, provide a much better look at her sporty styling.
The all-aluminum megayacht contract landed at Rossinavi thanks to Dini and the owner’s representatives. The owner conveyed to all his love of long-range cruising, as well as enjoying open living areas, particularly ones heightening the sensation of being outside. So, for instance, Lel has a somewhat larger than usual beach club, with three opening platforms, a bar, and an overall relaxing ambiance. While Lel’s tender garage is additionally part of the beach club, it can be partitioned off via an automatic door. This door closes access to a stairway leading to the main deck.
Of course, the main aft deck remains usable whether that access is open or not. In fact, Lel features a lounge-like atmosphere here, along with another bar. A similar atmosphere welcomes the owner and guests on the upper deck, which further has a dining area just inside. This area may very well become a favorite spot of everyone onboard, due to removable glass doors and special climate control. During warm-weather days, air conditioning can still keep diners comfortable, even when the doors are open. Similarly, outdoor heat lamps come into play on chilly days or nights.
Speaking of nights, and of flexibility, too, Lel has a special surprise below decks. While four staterooms accommodate guests, they become one big suite when the main hallway door is closed. This, and the beam of 29’5” (9 meters), promises a sizable suite indeed. The owner, naturally, has a sizable suite of his own forward on the main deck, with a balcony as well.
Sea trials soon should confirm the owner’s performance request. Twin MTUs should deliver a top speed of 23 knots, and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 11 to 12 knots.
