Project: Antonini UP40 Crossover

Antonini Navi presents UP40 Crossover, the first of three models based on the UP40 modular steel platform that allows the concept and type of yacht to be decided during the construction process. Like the upcoming models, Motoryacht and Sport Explorer, Crossover has been designed in collaboration with multiple award-winning architect and designer Fulvio De Simoni.  Like all the boats produced by the shipyard, UP40 rossover, on which construction work will begin in September, will have a clean, balanced and innovative design. Two main decks are connected by a half-deck containing the single helm station.  Static and dynamic testing of the hull, hull lines and appendages was performed at the Marin Maritime Research Institute in the Netherlands, simulating sea-keeping in up to extreme navigation conditions. The generous free boards have flowing lines and the cut of the bow is contemporary in style. The exterior areas can be furnished in various ways and an infinity pool can also be installed in the bow area on this model, creating a full-fledged solarium that is pleasantly airy both at anchor and when cruising.  UP40 Crossover is available in two versions, a fully Open Deck model designed for cruising in Mediterranean climates, plus an Enclosed Bridge version with a superstructure that covers part of the Upper Deck and features extensive glazed surfaces, offering a 360-degree view of the horizon. In this case, the owner’s suite can have a surface area of over 60 square meters and a private terrace. The external bow area can, of course, accommodate a table for  fresco dining and a sunbathing area. There are up to four double cabins for guests on the Lower Deck, sleeping a total of ten people, while five cabins are set aside for the crew.  The new model from Antonini Navi will also have two tenders: the first, seven meters long, is housed in the stern hangar for easy launch and recovery, while the second measuring almost four meters in length is stowed forward for use by the crew, with a recessed winched integrated in the gunwale.  The big fuel tanks and a special focus on efficient cruising deliver a range of over 5000 nautical miles at 10 knots. Top speed is about 15 knots and cruising speed is 12 knots.
