Project: Rodman 20m Navetta

After presenting the Spirit line a couple of months ago, and the Muse range in 2006 Rodman continue its efforts to expand and present a diversity of yacht styles with the new Navetta line. For this new project Rodman Polyships entrusted a Spanish firm with Barcelona Yacht Design tasked for the design of this new line which has a plan of having three models in the near future. So far we are being shown the rendering of the first twenty metre model, but a 24 and a 30 meters are also on plan. These last two models will put Rodman on the Super Yacht map, having at the moment the 74 Muse designed by Fulvio De Simoni as its largest model. The 20m Navetta will have a total length including the very large aft bathing platform of 23 metre and can be handled with a standard yachting licence. An explorer appearance abound in this new model, which is mixed up well with modern thinking thanks to large glassed surfaces on the main deck. But don't be mistaken the 20m Navetta is full of modern yacht flair in and out, and its speed is not slow at all. Inside the 20m Navetta will feature four guest cabins with owners suite to midship, and a VIP to fore. A crew lobby with cabin, small galley and saloon is to be found aft, along with a fourth double guest cabin located to starboard. The main deck is a split level saloon with the standard welcoming relaxing area aft, and dining, galley and helm station to fore. Tender stowage is on the flybridge, although the large bathing platform gives space for a second tender, or to use the fly for large entertainment areas. Twin Man 1360hp engines will power the 20m Navetta with the builder and designer estimating a top speed of 25 knots, and a cruise of 20.
