Project: Centouno Navi 16.5m Vespro

Following on from its 28m Forza and 39m Eterea projects, Italian sport and super sport yacht builder Centouno Navi, founded by designer and entrepreneur Manuela Lucchesi and naval architect Marco Arnaboldi, presents the 16.5m Vespro project, whose name translates into dusk or twilight in English.  Vespro is a fast sixteen meter sport yacht ideal for day excursions, or as a weekender for two or four persons.  The design and engineering of Vespro is all very high tech from the hull fully dedicated to jet propulsion efficiency, high-end lightweight sandwich construction with Carbon fibers and PVC foam core, and an exterior styling following the classic Open sport yacht but with a cool and contemporary edge. The sides and rear of the deckhouse are unglazed and the windscreen can retract into the coach roof for a full Open en plein air experience. The layout of the exterior aft deck is simple yet functional and flexible, with a large walkaround sun-pad and the fold-down panels in the bulwarks serve to increase the size of the aft deck and swim platform.  The foredeck is easily accessed by walkways on both sides and features another Vee-shaped sun-pad forward.  Under the hardtop is an L-shaped divan with accompanying dining table, facing sofa, bar unit, and central port side offset helm station.  A clever design solution is the the engine room air intakes integrated into the sweeping pillars which support the hardtop.  The accommodation below deck provides for a comfortable ensuite double-berth cabin forward, and a spacious lounge space with galley. There is also the option of another guest cabin behind the stairs leading below deck.  Fitted with twin Man 1200hp engines coupled to MJP waterjets, the 16.5 meter Vespro will have wide open throttle speeds up to 56 knots and a cruise of fifty knots which give a range of 350nm. The first unit of the Centouno Navi Vespro will launch in Summer 2023.
