The new 180-foot yacht Zephyr, designed by Federico Fiorentino, reaches 32 knots but its high-performance hull is designed to cross the Atlantic!
Federico Fiorentino’s new 180-foot Zephyr concept makes use of a combination of gentle curves popular in ?60s automotive designs and taut lines to create a long, streamlined profile, embellished with stainless-steel accents.
On Zephyr, the hull is particularly noteworthy:
With 16V 4000 MTU engines, it will deliver a top speed of 32 knots. At 12 knots the yacht has a transatlantic range of 3,540 nautical miles with fuel consumption of less than four gallons per nautical mile. The views are exceptional from every point on this deck.
The XL running surface is the next step forward for the Dutch firm’s patented fast displacement hull form. It provides 20 percent more speed over the previous generation and, perhaps more critical to the owner, 20 percent more interior space.
The master suite is located on the main deck, just forward of the saloon and dining area.
The palatial design includes a separate office, bedroom with lounge area on one side and vanity on the other, walk-in closet, and a full-beam en-suite bathroom. On the deck below, the five guest staterooms also have their own en-suites.
