Rossinavi’s ‘EIV’ yacht has a stainless steel grille like a supercar – Robb Report


Oversized stainless steel front grill. To verify. Angled windshield. Yes. A slender roofline, similar to that of a coupe. For sure. And 5,200 horsepower “under the hood”. But of course. We could be talking about an exotic Italian supercar here. No, do that hypercar.

But it’s the 160 foot superyacht EIV from Italian superyacht builder Rossinavi that looks as sleek and sexy as any Lamborghini, Ferrari or Bugatti.

“In fact, the inspiration was more Bentley, due to the emphasis on quality, craftsmanship and fine materials inside the yacht,” said Dean Anthony, owner’s representative and project manager. at Allied Marine, based in Florida. Robb Report.

Anthony shows us around this metallic and silver speed machine at the recent Palm Beach International Boat Show, where it was one of the undisputed stars of the event.

The “inspiration” he speaks of was born out of a joint effort between Florida-based superyacht owner and designer, Enrico Gobbi, and his Venice-based studio, Team for Design.

While the yacht takes many of its styling cues from one of Gobbi’s other recent designs, the 206ft Utopia IVbuilt by Rossinavi for Market America founder JR Ridinger, it’s that front-mounted stainless steel grille that really defines EIV a part.

Mounted on a flattened upper section of the yacht’s reverse-angled bow, it has raised stainless steel strips to mimic the bars of a supercar grille. It is also flanked by long stainless steel panels with openings for line manipulation which, when viewed from the front, resemble the slender headlights of a Bugatti Chiron.

“The owner is really proud of the design. He has been known to ask the crew to moor bow first in a marina slip, rather than the traditional stern, just so they can see him as he heads towards the yacht,” says Anthony .

Launched at the Rossinavi shipyard in Viareggio in 2020, EIV– or E4, as this is the owner’s fourth yacht – it took over two years to finalize the concept and another two to build. Constructed of aluminium, the fast-displacement hull is the work of Italian naval architects Arrabito.

LIFE is fast for a yacht of her size. Powered by a pair of MTU 16V 2000 turbodiesels rated at 2,600 horsepower each, the boat reaches a top speed of 22 mph and cruises serenely at 16. Return to around 12 mph for a range of over 3,500 miles.

Step aboard on the hinged swim platform and a huge drop-down panel reveals the beach club. It’s all comfy chairs, mirrored walls, with a nearby steam room and plunge pool. A clamshell door on the port side opens to unload a small armada of paddleboards, kayaks and a few Sea-Doos.

Built-in stairs lead to the lower aft deck with its expansive U-shaped sofas and fully stocked bar. Full-width windows with a central glass door open into the main living and dining room with its neutral palette of whites, silvers and creams.

Like the exterior, the interior is the work of Enrico Gobbi, who filled the spaces with fine fabrics and furnishings from Hermès, Rubelli, Loro Piana, and Armani/Casa.

Instead of a formal dining room, EIV the dining area is part of the main saloon and features fold-down balconies on either side to open up the area for breezes through. A concealed door leads into the professional-grade kitchen which Anthony says was fitted out by a Michelin-starred chef.

The yacht’s sprawling master suite is also on this main level and, in addition to having its bathrooms, huge closets and fold-out balcony, houses the owner’s private 300-bottle wine collection. Housed in three glass-fronted coolers — one for reds, one for whites, and one for champagne — the room includes a high-tech massage chair to soothe you as you sip.

Below decks are four more en-suite cabins for eight, with features such as lighted onyx sinks, marble floors and brass fittings.

“The interior design brief was to have the look, feel and style of some of the six-star hotels and spas the owner has enjoyed over the years,” says Anthony .

And as in any great spa, EIV has two pools to choose from. The larger of the two is a 12ft by 6ft swimming pool concealed on the upper deck. It can be filled with fresh or salt water, has a glass waterfall and, for exercise, a push of a button creates a resistance flow.

EIV also has a party boat vibe, fitting in easily with the Miami scene where he occasionally hangs out. At night, its multicolored and flashy neon lighting, its advanced audio system and its 100-inch drop-down projection screen for the occasion Saturday night fever film screening, everything continues the party.

Since its launch, EIV scoured western Mediterranean hotspots like the Amalfi Coast and Capri, and crossed the Atlantic to winter in St. Barths and the Bahamas. In the coming weeks, the boat will head back to the Mediterranean for the summer season.

The yacht is now on the market with Allied Marine for $40.4 million.
