The Italian Sea Group has launched its latest 73.2-metre (240-foot) explorer superyacht Planet Nine.
Known during her construction as Project 575, the custom Ice-Class yacht is the 575th vessel from the Italian yard and its largest to date. Built to Lloyd’s 1D rules, she will be able to navigate flat ice up to 15-centimetres thick.
On board, she features interior design by German studio, Fitz Design, and is styled to recreate the feeling of a villa.
The explorer boasts accommodation for 12 guests across five generous cabins on her lower deck, as well as a 300sqm owner’s suite with two cabins and central lounge on her main deck. A further VIP stateroom is found on the upper deck aft.
The most notable features of this explorer include an observation lounge forward on the upper deck; a tender bay on the main deck aft, which comes equipped with two 9.75-metre Rupert Marine tenders; and a helipad and hangar for an Agusta Grande helicopter, equipped with dedicated fuel station, accommodation and office for her helicopter pilot.
Also on board is a large beach club and spa, main-deck cinema room with 112-inch screen and two elevators – one for crew and one for guests, connecting all five decks.
Giuseppe Taranto, CEO and worldwide sales director of the group, said, “We are proud of this construction and are confident she will be a benchmark in her category. She is a yacht with a unique style that will attract attention in every port. Planet Nine is also a great achievement in terms of technology.”
Planet Nine is scheduled for delivery to her owner later this year, when she will take her place as one of the largest explorer yachts in the world.
