Italian yacht builder Cerri Cantieri Navali has launched the sixth hull in its 102 Flyingsport yacht series, a 31.1-metre (102-foot) fast-planing superyacht.
Sold in December 2017 to an American client, the RINA-class yacht has now been christened Francesca.
She comprises a GRP hull and superstructure with on-board accommodation for up to eight guests split between a master suite, a VIP and two twin bedrooms, while the crew quarters can house up to three staff.
Francesca boasts interior styling by Tommaso Spadolini, who collaborated with CCN to develop an American-inspired layout with a country kitchen-style galley on the main deck. In addition, she will feature a central dining table with a skylight centred above to create an inviting space that allows for plenty of natural light.
The design scheme throughout the interior is in a classical style, with sycamore, dark woods, glass and satin metal, along with a luxurious range of leather by Marine Leather, coloured fabrics from C&C and lively wall panels by Pierre Frey.
Moving outside, Francesca offers a large circular foredeck seating area with sunpads forward, and a sundeck that measures 23-metres square – this enables an extendable dining table, removable awning, barbecue and further sunbathing space.
Francesca sports a draft of 1.2-metres, which was a specific request from the owners to allow for quick and safe movement through shallow American waters.
Power will come from a pair of 2,600hp MTU diesel engines twinned to ZF Searex surface drives for a top speed of 40 knots, and comfortable cruising at 30 knots.
Francesca will make her public debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September after spending the summer in the Mediterranean.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the 27-metre Fuoriseries yacht Freedom, which is expected to be launched by fashion designer Roberto Cavalli in the coming months.
