Projects: GIanetti Star 58 Navetta, Gianetti Star 65 Navetta, Gianetti Star 75 Navetta, Gianetti Star 85 Navetta 3 Deck, Gianetti Star 105 Navetta

After having delivered 2 semi displacement models in the 85 feet range, Italian Viareggio based builder Gianetti decided to offer a whole line of Navetta type yachts from 58 up 105 feet, build in fiberglass and steel, alloy for the bigger 105 feet model. The 58 foot Navetta will be the entry model of the range and in my opinion also the most important. First for the size which is a comfortable but not big yacht accessible in many marinas and easy handled with no help, second is the characteristics of a semi displacement ship like style motor yacht from Europe and from Italy in this size. Something rare to see! Interior for the 58 Navetta also follows a much European layout with 3 spacious cabins, featuring the ever important full beam owners cabin. Power will be a pair of Cummins rated at 480hp each, of which no speeds as yet have been announced.
The second family member in size of the new range of Gianetti Star is the 65. Also as the 58 a very important size and as the smaller model also build of fiberglass. Interior is a 3 cabin layout, with 2 crew cabins, 1 mid ship which can be used also as a guest cabin and 1 aft. Power is for two Cummins of 715hp each, which the builder gives a range of 1150 miles at 10 knots. Another add up to the Gianetti Star line, is 75 Navetta model. Here the dimensions at 75 are for a more standard size for a semi displacement yacht, as the market has some offers in this size mostly from Northern European yard. Still the Gianetti has a very modern Mediterranean line to it with the usual Italian flare, expected from a Viareggio builder. Standard interior plan is a 3 cabin layout with a spacious 4 berth crew lobby forward. Engines are two Cummins 670hp each, surprisingly less power to the smaller 65 model, give a range of 1350 miles at 10 knots. Three deck version based on the 85 model, which so far Gianetti has launched in two versions, S and C. The new 85 3 Deck has a more classic exterior looks, thanks primary to the raised pilot house on the third deck. The third deck up top is not only the pilot house but also features another entertainment area up top, thanks to the c-shaped saloon. This new 85 version, compared to the S and C versions so far delivered is powered by bigger Cummins 1015hp each, which the builder is estimating a range of 2300 miles at cruising of 10 knots. The project of the Gianetti Star 105 Navetta, will be so far the biggest motor yacht to ever be built by this experienced Viareggio builder, which I remind started building yachts in 1980. This new model will be constructed in difference to the other Star yachts, with a steel hull and an alloy superstructure giving maximum stability, another first for Gianetti. Standard plans show a 5 cabin interior with a fabulous owners stateroom on the main deck, featuring full 360 views. Standard power option is a pair of Cats at 1000hp, with 4 by Generators of which 2 emergency units. Construction will be with to highest standard RINA 1oo A 1.1 Y class.
