All-aluminium ‘pocket’ superyachts

Tommaso Spadolini has released details of its Montecristo 30 and Montecristo 43, which it terms as ‘pocket’ superyachts.

The two motor cruisers draw on Spadolini’s 40 years as a yacht designer.

“The 30m and 43m represent the smallest and largest in an expandable series that meets the modern needs of the market,” says Spadolini. “It made sense to start with these as the styling and layout can be easily adapted to create models in between with the same design DNA.”

Features like the air-intake grilles, dark strip glazing and vertical bow, have a strong family resemblance to other of his designs.

Lower deck

The larger yacht has five guest cabins (3 VIPs and 2 singles) on the lower deck, with access from the main salon aft. The smaller 30m has two VIP suites amidships, plus a single cabin accessed by a central staircase from the main salon. The 43m has forward accommodation for six crew and a captain’s cabin on the forward main deck with direct access to the wheelhouse above. The 30m can sleep five crew including the captain on the lower deck. Both models have a crew dinette, and the 40m also has a dedicated laundry.

Main deck

The widebody main deck aboard the 43m is arranged along the port side and comprises a generous salon with bar, a separate dining room, the galley and adjacent pantry. The captain’s cabin is opposite the galley. The 30m has a smaller salon, galley and pantry, and a full-beam master stateroom forward with a large walk-in wardrobe and private day lounge.

Both yachts have terraced aft decks leading down to the swim platform and the second open-air lounge with pool on the foredeck.

Hybrid and renewable power options

Both yachts have an aft section on the sun deck made of glass that is designed to incorporate solar cells to provide auxiliary hotel power. The engine room is also configured with space for battery banks to allow silent, zero-emission manoeuvring or cruising at low speed in protected waters for limited periods.

“As a yacht designer, it’s my duty to look after the marine environment,” says Spadolini. “And I see more and more of my clients, perhaps encouraged by their children and grandchildren, taking a more proactive approach to sustainable yachting.”
