Italian studio Team For Design has spoken for the first time about Prince Shark 50, its latest collaboration with Rossinavi.
The design builds on the success of the Prince Shark series, but sees the inclusion of new naval architecture and a fixed owner’s balcony, as well as an increase of 1.5 metres in length to bring the LOA up to 50 metres (164 foot).
Chief designer Enrico Gobbi commented, “My aim was to design a yacht that combines the elegance given by neat lines and proportions, along with an aggressive appearance given by some particularly sporty and dynamic details.
“The sleekness of the exterior lines, and in particular the narrow shape of the massive structure of the fly deck in which a large glass window has been inserted, combined with the unique design of the superstructure’s long and narrow windows, make this yacht appear even longer than other yachts in this category.”
The recognisable Prince Shark styling cues remain in tact on the new model, including the 45-degree reverse-angled windshields, but the cockpit and upper deck overhangs have been inflected to inject a sense of lightness and fluidity to the exterior lines.
Elsewhere within the design, Team For Design has expanded the Prince Shark’s superyacht beach club with a fold-out section to starboard, allowing guests to enjoy a sea view as they work out in the gym. The inclusion of a new foredeck spa pool offers another peaceful place to relax on board.
Four hulls of the original Prince Shark series have been sold to date, but the studio explained the larger design is for a new client and has the potential to be constructed and launched within two years of contract signing.
Other superyacht projects currently in development at Rossinavi include the 70-metre (230-foot) King Shark, another Gobbi design due for delivery in 2020.
