New Model: Centouno Navi Vespro 16.70 m

For the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, Centouno Navi debuted the launch of its first construction, the semi-custom sixteen meters Vespro, a very fast fifty knots plus open T-top covered sport yacht designed by Marco Arnaboldi and Manuela Lucchesi.  The two architects apart being the designers are also the owners of Centouno, a high end fast sport yacht builder presenting itself in 2022 with the 28m Forza and 39m Eterea projects, and the Vespro announced some months from the larger models, construction starting just after the announcement. The two designers for the Vespro present clean and soft curved lines, futuristic but not sharp minimal, a trend which in the renderings is followed in the larger Centouno sisters.  With this one can say that the Vespro is an open sport yacht of the future, with spacious exterior spaces and an open aft deck, which extends and doubles its size thanks to port and starboard drop down balconies, and a T-top which covers the pilot station and central area of the cockpit.  Over half of the exterior area from the helm station to aft is a wide body, meaning it uses nearly all the available beam, with two left and right stairs leading you to the foredeck sun-pad area.  Down below the Vespro offers a two cabins sleeping four layout, with saloon and galley in between. A traditional arrangement with the exception for the forward master stateroom which features a fore peak shower head in order to centralize the stateroom and using most of the beam available without being in a midships location.  The Centouno Navi Vespro is powered by twin Man 1200hp with MJP jet propulsion, a Marco Arnaboldi specialization who apart being the founder of the go-to jet powered yacht brand is also the architect or consultant for the majority of yachts and fast patrol vessels with jet power.  With Marco Arnaboldi architecting the jet propulsion it is sure not to be disappointed in the performance of the Vespro, and the first Centouno Navi reached speeds of 57 knots, an extra one knot to the declared design speed, a fast cruise of fifty, and a very economic to run six litres per nautical miles 35 knots cruise.  Nothing more to add but impressive numbers!.
