Serenity and sophistication are at the heart of EIV, a 160-foot (48.8-meter) custom megayacht that American owners look forward to spending time aboard in the weeks and months to come. Having recently taken delivery from Rossinavi, they have U.S. and Caribbean waters on their itinerary.
Code-named Project Vector 50 during construction, the megayacht shares some similarities to Utopia IV, a.k.a. Project Vector. Namely, they both feature aluminum construction and a fast-displacement hull form. Additionally, they share sporty styling by Team for Design – Enrico Gobbi as well as naval architecture by Arrabito Naval Architects.
Since the owner’s representative says the goal was for a yacht that felt more like a 60-meter (197-footer), EIV makes good use of her volume, which falls within the 500-gross-ton threshold. Abundant glass, especially floor-to-ceiling windows along the main deck, along with a light backdrop make the relaxation and entertaining areas luminous and inviting. Enrico Gobbi collaborated with the owner for the decor, ensuring decorative lighting, bronzed brass, onyx, leathers, and more all added to a modern ambience and the relaxed feel.
With accommodations for eight in the owner’s party, EIV follows a somewhat traditional layout. Therefore, four guest staterooms sit below decks, while the master is forward on the main deck. Additionally, EIV’s owner has a private balcony to starboard. Guests can have a similar experience while gathered together in the formal dining area. Sections of the floor-to-ceiling glass here slide open, further bringing in fresh, cooling sea air.
Enjoy a look aboard this 29-foot-beam (8.9-meter-beam) boat, capable of a reported 19-knot top speed and 3,600-nautical-mile range.
