Project: Cantieri di Pisa 22 Kitalpha

What a superb looking project the new Cantieri di Pisa 22 Kitalpha is.  Luca Dini really out did himself and presented one of the most elegant looking traditional explorer yachts in the market. The only small let down is that possibly the 22 Kitalpha could have looked a bit more like the never ending elegance the early seventies wood build 15 Kitalpha had. To be built of a full alloy or steel construction option and feature a semi displacement hull, the 22 Kitalpha also reinvents the wheel in its layout, pilot house, raised saloon which looks coming from a sailing boat, and an important aft beach house which opens on the water when at anchor.  Cantieri di Pisa new 22 Kitapha will be powered by twin Volvo 700hp engines with line shafts propulsion.  Speeds are 19 knots max for the lighter alloy version with the steel hull giving 14 nautical miles per hour.
