55m support vessel from Rosetti Superyachts
Rosetti Superyachts has introduced a new 55-metre support vessel to its range which includes the 38-metre EXP and the 65-metre EXP Explorers.
Rugged, by superyacht standards, the vessel was developed by HydroTec, the studio behind the design and naval architecture of the company’s 38-metre Explorer currently in build.
This support vessel is said to be the perfect link between the shipyard’s expertise in commercial shipbuilding and the world of explorer yachts, designed to cruise long distances in all kinds of sea and weather conditions.
“Our 55m support vessel, conceived in collaboration with HydroTec, embodies the DNA of Rosetti Marino’s experience in the naval sector, offering the market a more comfortable and refined version of a commercial vessel, but preserving at the same time the core characteristics of safety and reliability at sea,” says Ermanno Bellettini, chairman and CEO of Rosetti Superyachts.
Offering superyacht owners a shadow vessel that can house extra crew and staff, the vessel has a vast 224 sqm open deck, affording ample space to accommodate a range of toys and tenders, submarines, a helicopter and containers for cargo and provisions.
A steel hull with low hydrodynamic resistance, an aluminium superstructure and balanced weight distribution are said to provide for minimised motion and increased comfort under way. “With a top speed of 22 knots, thanks to two 2,600HP engines, this support vessel is fast enough to reach destinations ahead of the mothership so that all the tenders and toys can be unloaded and ready for the guests on arrival,” comments Andrea Giora, sales and marketing director of Rosetti Superyachts.
Should the owner choose to spend time on board, the main deck can be equipped with a saloon, galley, an owner’s suite and three double cabins, while the lower deck can host up to seven cabins for the crew. Interior design can be completed to the owner’s specifications depending on personal preference and the primary purpose of the vessel.
