There was so much expectation around Cetera that Cetèra, the brand that presented itself to the world by “inventing” a new category of boat, the multispace yacht, pronounced itself. If until now, however, only a sketch of this boat had been seen, from now on the shape and lines are finally clear. But there’s more. The first boat CETERA 60 is already in the pipeline and will make its first official appearance in 2019 between spring and summer.
Flybridge, explorers, trawlers, hardtops will therefore have a new “companion” in the rankings, the multispace yacht, which focuses its peculiarity on the concept of “stretched liveability” that will differentiate it from all other boats.
What is it about?
A new distribution of indoor and outdoor spaces to maximize liveability on board and offer more space available, a process of vertical repositioning that takes inspiration from what is the structure of a villa: the living areas are arranged on a single level of deck instead of on two or more levels. The result of this way of building is lower production costs and shorter delivery times, all while maintaining a high range of raw materials, essential for luxury yachts. How does this happen?
For example, the cabins are not modelled on the lines of the hull, which makes the fitting process easier. The main machinery and equipment – from engines and generators to pumps, boilers, air conditioning and plumbing – have been installed for comfort on board and arranged to make access for maintenance as easy as possible.
On the model “villa” the saloon and guest cabins are located on the main deck, without intermediate stairs and the windows make the environment airy as well as facilitating the interaction between indoor and outdoor environments, characteristic of the architecture of the houses on the “mainland”. The yard’s boats will be equipped with different hybrid propulsion solutions for the most economical and ecological navigation possible.
This boat is aimed at young families and superyacht owners who want to scale down. That’s what Cetera’s first model is all about, combining a traditional shuttle, a long-distance boat and a flybridge cruise boat.
The lower deck is dedicated to services and engine rooms. The arrangement of the equipment makes it easy to inspect the entire boat. On this yacht there is both the crew cabin and the laundry room and a tender garage, all on the lower deck. The main deck at the bow serves as a panoramic saloon, but protected by high walls to maintain privacy when the boat is moored in port. All guest accommodation is located halfway up the ship on the main deck.
This layout offers a remarkable interior volume on the main deck, while the fact that the cabins are further away from the engines translates into less noise and superior comfort on board. The upper deck, which can be opened or closed, has a sliding roof and a dinette that can comfortably accommodate 8 guests to enjoy the outdoor sailing experience as well as the galley and helm station.
