Yacht Class n°16 (march-april-may 2019)


With such a name, she was bound to deliver good performances and to cross the 30 knots threshold. And she manages it ! Furthermore, this Rossinavi of almost 50 metres is also the symbol of a comfortable unit with a contemporary decoration, which was appreciated by many visitors. What about the master suite ? It is definitely worth the detour !

If the Rossinavi brand was created in 2007, the shipyard actually goes way back to the 1970s. At the time, the two Rossi brothers, Claudio and Paride, were mainly manufacturing passenger vessels. Only a few decades later did they decide to start building yachts. Today Rossinavi is famous for its “all custom” units, between 30 and 80 metres, made in steel and aluminum. Four units will be delivered within the next three years: in 2020, Vector 50M, Florentia 52M, FR038 50M and in 2021, King Shark 70M. This year saw the birth of the Flying Dagger II, which was unveiled at the last Monaco Yacht Show. Her silhouette, designed by Enrico Gobbi (Team4 Design), is similar to that of an open hard-top and she is expected to reach relatively high speeds for a 50 metres. All the more so given that Rossinavi likes performance. In addition to the fast hull design created by Rossinavi internal office, the proper choice of power was required. The shipyard opted thus for three 2 600 hp MTU diesels engine coupled to Rolls-Royce Kamewa waterjets, which gives her a top speed of 31 knots, a cruising speed of 24 knots, and a range of 3 300 miles at 12 knots. In terms of comfort, the Flying Dagger II can hold its head up high among her competitors, thanks to her three decks, including a flybridge. In addition to the saloon-dining area, the main deck hosts forward the master “royal” suite, with its balcony on port side and a 2.15 m headroom… perfect to satisfy both American and North European customers. The antechamber of the master houses an office while the bathroom has been fitted forward. On this same deck, we also find the main galley, adjacent to the dining room. Below decks, four en suite VIP cabins are located amidships while the bow volume is devoted to the crew: a mess, a single captain’s cabin and two double cabins (bunk beds). The Flying Dagger II features two garages: one located between the VIP cabins and the engine room, for a 6.50 m tender (lateral opening), the other one, for a small 2.80 m tender, is in the transom. The classical foredeck features a relaxation area with a settee and a sunpad, plus a technical area on the bow, including a crane to extract the life raft stored in a small garage.
With this 50 metre, Rossinavi continues to gain momentum in the world of luxury yachting. We now have to wait a couple of years before discovering its 70 meters whose exterior and interior designs were also penned by Enrico Gobbi and Team4 Design.
